avast BUY PASSWORD PROTECTION POPUP!!!
« on: September 29, 2016, 03:10:34 PM »
why does avast constantly nag to buy password protection with a popup WARNING that i have UNSECURE passwords???

i have disabled popups for other avast products yet they still keep coming. i paid for this product and it will be my last subscription if avast can't fix this annoying virus action.

Remove all (trial) components from avast and see if it makes a difference.

which components are trial? i can't find any components identified as "trial" and none that indicate that they contain "password protection".

thanks Asyn, i knew about that. i'm trying to find out which components are "trial" and not components that i have purchased. i only want to uninstall "trial" components tacked on to my purchase.

Avast Passwords is included in all versions and it's free.

Remove avast! Passwords component. I'm not using it and I'm not getting these popups at all.
