How to remove Avast Passwords - Urgent
« on: December 21, 2015, 04:47:36 PM »
How do I remove Avast Passwords.
Since installing it I can no longer do any banking.
It keeps asking to generate a more secure password. Our banks do not work like that. So I cant get past this point and therefore am locked out of all three of my banking profiles. My two company accunts and my personal accounts.

Does not help me.
Works fine for all other web sites but with banking you get the double passwords at the bank. I can't run to the bank every time and tell them what the password is. Because it is a double password and I need to access it from many places, such as when I am in the shop of a supplier, I then have a problem.
So either I must remove Avast completely or remove the password add-on which I paid for.
At the moment I have removed Avast from one system so that I can at least access the bank.
So because of this password mess I must not choose a different Anti-virus program after using Avast for over 10 years.

Hello,

No need to completely uninstall avast , it is also possible to simply remove the password Module

Add/remove program -> avast -> modify -> change -> uncheck password tool -> continue -> restart

As far as I'm concerned , absolutely no need about  this tool , I just want basic avast feature.

Alex,

you can exclude websites from the password manager as is explained in the FAQ at the avast website.
