What real good is a csv file of my passwords that I can look at if I can't get it back (imported INTO) the password file during that csv file.  I want an easier way to put all my passwords INTO the password manager so I wanted to add them to a csv file and then import them.  It seems like it should be a reasonable function of a password manager...

As has been explained, the csv file is there so humans have a readable backup and it can be used to import the passwords into other password managers.

Hi lkshoppingdeals,

There is a feature "Synchronization and backup" for a case you describe. Eporting to csv is for a situation when you want to stop using Avast Passwords and want to migrate your passwords to another password manager.

But thank you for your feedback. We will consider implementing import from csv feature.

Hello Thomas !

Yes, please do that and implement a csv-import into Avast-Passwords.

Saving encrypted passwords is really important so that they can be backed up,
not only on the AVAST-Cloud, but also independently on the user's own

I always have trouble with the "Sync & Backup" functionality in connection
with my AVAST-Account and migrating to a new computer would be MUCH EASIER
if there were a simple CSV-re-import function in AVAST-Passwords.

Thanks in advance, but do please implement this function.

Best Regards,
