Importing to Passwords
« on: November 22, 2016, 10:16:27 PM »
Can passwords from another manager vault (KASP) be imported into the Avast Manager?
Thank you

The short and simple answer is no.

Hello
I hope that this feature will appear soon because all my password are on LastPass and I would prefear to use only one program (Avast Internet Security) ;)
Thanks

I'd go further: Avast Passwords doesn't even import from it's export (to .csv) mechanism, it seems. I'd love to be proved wrong! I'm facing over 150 hand-inserted sites, usernames and passwords, to recover from re-installing Windows.

It might be argued that the csv mechanism is not very secure. It isn't, except I keep mine on an encrypted drive.

Regards,

You can enable synchronization and retrieve the passwords with that in case something happened.

Thanks for answering!

I had enabled synchronisation, but it seemed to do very little. What does it synchronise with? The Browser? How do you point it to the .csv file?

This would save me a lot of work!!!

The csv file is only to have a copy of the sites/passwords for the user.
As has been explained by avast in other threads, it is not meant as a backup of the sites/passwords to import them (again) in the tool.

Okay, well I figured it out.  I can just view the CSV files in notepad or something.

Good advice out there for anyone reading.

That's correct. CSV simply means that the values are comma separated.
You can use that information to manually sign into the various sites and then have the
password manager again remember that sign-in information.

Has anyone achieved importing a .csv file into Passwords on OS X ?
I'm fighting with 1password .csv export with the following structure as prompted in the Passwords importation wizard without success :

Code: [Select]
"Notes","Password","Title","Type","URL","Username",
Which .csv template did you use ?

No, ofcourse not as it is meant for importing in other password managers and for the user so (s)he have a human readable file as backup.
