Resolved Question

Norton deleting passwords

by golden1 / May 20, 2013 5:55 AM PDT

I just got Norton V19.9.1.14. It deleted cookies automatically. Also, my saved passwords deleted. Is this automatic cookie change tied in with passwords?
Never got this report on previous version.

It has happened twice.

Just need to know. Thanks in advance.

If You're Referring To Online/Website Passwords, Yep...

..cookies contain website information, such as "remembered" passwords.. Deleting them will cause those passwords to forgotten so you'll need to login each time you visit a website..

If you don't want such cookies to be deleted, check the settings in your Norton program.. Sometimes, there are options to exclude specific cookies. If no such option is available, disable Norton's cookie deletion utility.

Hope this helps.
