Avast password won't activate in Chrome
« on: February 12, 2017, 06:35:39 PM »
I just upgraded to Avast Premier and now my Avast passwords extension in Chrome is not activated.  How do I activate it?  I see all my passwords in the main avast premier passwords tab.

Thanks.  I couldn't follow the instructions from that link since I think they must be for a different version of Avast.  here are the instructions from the link...

----------------------------
Extensions are automatically installed during setup for Passwords. In case this fails, or you would like to add the extensions manually, follow these steps:

In Avast user interface, go to  Settings → Passwords 
Scroll to the section Browser Integration and click Install next the appropriate browser
------------------------------

There is no "Passwords" under "settings" in Avast Premier.  There is a "Password" link but that only brings me to the main password settings.

Am I looking in the wrong place?

Hi Timothy,
For those of us who don't have unlimited amounts of time to search around for a solution, could you please describe how you solved this problem to assist others and eliminate a good deal of frustration?
Thanks in advance!
