Title: Can't synch or back-up
Post by: isac10 on August 04, 2019, 07:53:04 PM
Hi.

I'm trying to synchronize my Avast Passwords. If I do this from my Android it says "Pending authorization to account". I must authorize access from another already authorized account. I don't have that.

If I do it from my PC it wants me to open Avast Passwords from another synchronized device. I don't have that either.

What do I do?

Thanks

Hi,

sorry to disturb but I have the same issue. The first device sychronized was probably a Windows PC and I do not retrieve any email from you with the code.

Is it possible to receive another email / message to let me sync all the devices?

regards

alessandro

Hi Alessandro208,

It looks like the first device you synced was actually an Huawei Android device, and it is still set as authorized in the sync group. If you still have the device and haven't uninstalled or deleted the data/cache from the Avast Passwords app, then you could use it to authorize your subsequent devices according to the instructions in this support article: https://support.avast.com/article/255/#idt_020

Fortunately, the link in your Backup email expired, so a new link was generated for you. I have sent you the replacement link now in a PM, so you can use it to re-sync your devices if you do not have access to the original Huawei device. Please follow the instructions in this support article (using the replacement link rather than the "Restore" button in the email): https://support.avast.com/article/92/

Hi Avast,
I am having the same issue. I can't authorise any new devices (PC, Huawei, iPad, all three are affected), I don't remember which device I used during the first setup, and I can't find the "restore" email in my archive. Please help!

I am sorry however there is no way to reset the last password for your my.avast.com account. The only way to resolve this now is to reset your Passwords vault completely. This will allow you to set up a Passwords vault on your Avast account again however all data in the current Passwords vault will be irreversibly removed.

@Dunozilla
Unfortunately, it seems that the original device has been de-synchronized and without the restore email, I can only offer you the reset of your Passwords vault. This action will remove all data from the current online Passwords vault and it will allow you to set up synchronization of Passwords on your Avast account again.

Hi Jakub,
You may proceed to reset my Passwords vault.
