How to use “Mobile Unlock” feature of Norton Password Manager?

Norton is one of the leading brands when it comes to device security. It not only protects your device from getting infected with viruses but also safeguards your online as well as offline privacy.

Since there are many products to choose from, Norton Password Manager is one of the significant tools that are gaining recognition among users who wish to safeguard their devices and personal data from going into wrong hands.

It is essential to have a password manager on your device so that staying protected becomes more convenient.

Although a password manager allows you to store, organize, and access your data, with this you can also manage your sensitive information by providing additional security for making online transactions.

There are various settings which you can customize according to your needs such as resetting the password, and a special “Mobile Unlock” feature which can be used to unlock the password manager with your mobile unlocking password.

This feature removes the hassle of entering your password again and again to gain access to your data.
