    I see this says it is compatible with Chrome. Does that mean all features are compatible, including the safe search and the site ratings while surfing?

    All I'm gonna say is look through the NIS forums for posts on identity safe before buying.

    I highly recommend Sticky Password if you want to pay for something. KeePass if you don't.

    Norton Community blog post (with pictures).

    It looked like it during my brief testing (safe search and the site ratings are definitely there).

    A quick look at a few Identity Safe threads didn't raise any red flags for me. Is there something specific that you feel is problematic? Could you link to a thread in the NIS forum as an example?

    Just a few from page 1. I have been seeing these since release. Judge the severity of them for yourself. And if you find it is acceptable after doing some research, by all means go for it, just know what you are getting... I wasn't very picky about the content of these, just the first several I could find.

    Interesting. I didn't realize there were so many issues because I've never needed to use it.

    I'm just interested in the search result and web site ratings for chrome. Maybe I can disable the password saver?

    When it prompts you to set up Identity Safe, you can select "Never".

    Sticky Password is nice, but KeePass among others, as an interesting functionality - it allows the user to enter the master password in a secure desktop. :)
