Symantec™ VIP is a powerful, additional layer of security that links your PC to the online account, VPN or application that you select, decreasing the ability of thieves to access your accounts and information from another PC.25Created jointly by industry leaders Intel® and Symantec, and available through select member websites, VIP helps ensure that only you can access your online accounts and websites. When you log into any of the hundreds of VIP member websites, you’re asked to provide a one-time password that’s automatically generated by Intel® Identity Protection Technology. Since the password is random, and you get a new one each time you visit, it’s virtually impossible for cybercriminals to hijack your online identity.25The best part? The identity protection technology is built into your new PC’s processor, so there’s no extra hardware to buy and no tokens or other “credentials” to lug around, forget, or lose. Protecting yourself online has never been easier.25
