For Opera?
« on: March 03, 2017, 07:16:11 AM »
Will Avast Password ever be supported in Opera? Since Avast Online Security is an available extension on the browser, shouldn't Password be too?

You are not the first one to ask.
Please (re)search before posting.

avast said they will consider adding support for Opera, but this was many months ago...
After that no word about it from avast. :(

Hi daftshadow,

we don't support opera officially.
But as it is based on chromium then chrome extension actually should work there (I believe we are talking about the one based on blink).
If you are interested in guide how to make it work in there ping me PM.
Note that Avast Safe zone browser is based on opera as well and it already has passwords extension bundled so you may consider it as replacement of original Opera browser.

Regards,

Martin

I haven't tested it and I have no idea if it will work or not, but there is a extension for Opera that allows people to install and use extensions for Chrome.
https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/download-chrome-extension-9/

If you want, I would say give it a try and let us know.

How to

Note that we don't support Opera browser officially so reading more and following procedure described here is on your own risk!

If you really want to have Passwords in Opera based on blink you can do it following way - note that we will count Opera as you would use Chrome, so in settings you will see chrome extension activated even in case you don't have chrome installed.
In order to be able activate the extension you will need either Firefox or Chrome browser installed anyway

Steps:

Should you have any problems with our extension in Opera please post it here on forum as support will tell you Opera is not supported ;-)
P.S.: don't worry I have checked steps above out and earth is still spinning - I hope at least :)
