You want for there to NOT
be a checkmark next to hide extensions--because we want to see extensions.
Now Is there a easy way to get my passwords from 360 to keepass? I looked at plug ins but have not done anything yet.
I thought it said there was one that you could do something with, plug in for that. Didn't get time to read it .
An easy way to convert?--Unfortunately, no. It's not all that hard either, just time consuming, especially if you have a lot of passwords. Can you give me an idea of how many?
I don't see any plugins to convert InfoVault or Identity Safe data to KeePass.http://keepass.info/plugins.html
You may have assumed that the first one under Import & Converters
, "AnyPassword Import", would Import from any password manager, but that's not the case. "AnyPassword" is the name of another password management program, so that plugin would only convert from "AnyPassword" to KeePass.
What we want to do to make the conversion fast and easy is export your password data from Norton and then import it to KeePass. This is done by exporting to a comma separated values (.CSV) file. (This is another reason why we need to see file extensions, so we know what kind of files we are working with.) It's also known as a comma delimited or tab delimited file. It is some basic computer coding, showing where data is entered into particular fields of the program you are using. Each field is separated by a comma in the .csv
file. For example, let's say the first field in Norton's PM program is the title of the site or password record, the second is for a URL related to the site, the third is your user name and the fourth is the password. In a .csv export the fields would be as follows:MySite,myurl.com,myname,mypassword
Unfortunately, the order of the fields of the program you are importing to are not always the same as the program you are exporting from, so you might get the password in the field where the username should be. Plus you could run into other coding issues that could make the process more complicated than it needs to be. When I converted from Acerose to KeePass, I was lucky enough for the fields to be in the right order, but KeePass requires all field data to be enclosed in double quotes, so I had to edit the .csv file. I even then ran into some other issues--coding is very picky, the syntax has to be absolutely correct, and if you aren't used to how to correct issues you can get stuck real easy--but I continued with it and eventually got it all done because I wanted to learn how to deal with .csv files and such conversions.
If you don't have very many passwords, I would suggest you not try to edit a .csv. Try importing Norton's data if you can and see which fields are in the correct position. Then manually edit each password record to make everything correct.
The other alternative, of course, and probably the easiest if you have only a handful of passwords, is to open Norton, and then open KeePass and start copying and pasting from one to the other.
To export from Norton, check its help file. I found instructions here but your program may have more information:http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/nco.n....nsf&view=0
Use the instructions for if you are uninstalling Norton. One problem here is that this article says 360 version 2.0 exports to .csv but it doesn't say what version three does. But do please export and then let me know what the exact name of the file is--and you have to have those extensions unhidden to tell if it's a .csv file or not.
A security consideration while you are doing this is what kind of environment you are operating in. Are you at home where there is no one else that can get on your computer and look at the .csv file? If not, just export the file, see if it is .csv and what you can do with it, then delete it before leaving your computer. When you need to work with it again you can re-export. The Norton article says you can password protect the export, but let's not do that yet as I want to see what kind of file you have without password protection.
If you do have a .CSV file exported and want to get started on your own, in KeePass, go to File, Import from, CSV file, and then see how it goes from there.
Something else--if you are going to keep using Norton's password manager, this conversion may not be worth the trouble. Just convert to KeePass if you are going to use it as your PM and because it's possible you will still switch away from Norton.
I have not read blog yet.
No problem, that is just for information.
Don't think wrong about what I said in PM.
Not sure what was in it that I would think wrong about. It was a nice PM and I appreciate being thanked. Please don't assume anything about me not answering. My biggest fault on forums is not answering PM's--I'm terrible at it.
