Why can't you do anything on that instruction?

Norton 360 installation allow full disc access

Could you please provide me with a screenshot? make sure there is no password visible

I do not know how to do a screenshot

To take a screenshot, press and hold these three keys together: Shift, Command, and 3. If you see a thumbnail in the corner of your screen, click it to edit the screenshot. Or wait for the screenshot to save to your desktop.

it is asking NEIKEv2provider wants to access key "Norton" in your keychain ... enter the "login" keychain password. I do not know what that is

  • You should turn on VPN to allow Norton to protect your Mac against suspicious network activities
  • When adding the VPN profile, you need to provide your Mac administrator account password to allow the keychain access for NEIKEv2Provider.
  • NEIKEv2Provider is a service responsible for establishing secure VPN connections.
  • It requests access to the keychain to receive the required authorization data for the VPN connection.

this is what I am trying to do and it won't let me in because I do not know what the Login keychain password is.
how do I find that
I put in my administrator account password and that does not work

Ok. Got it
Your login keychain password is normally the same as your user password

Customer Replay

Duh that worked
Thank you
