Lost my master Avast Password
« on: August 05, 2017, 06:00:48 PM »
Hi all,
I lost my master Avast Password on my PC. Unfornately, there's no option "Forget your password" :(
How can I reset it without uninstalling/reinstalling the software. If I have no choice doing that, what would I lose (passwords...)?
Thank you very much

I'm in the same boat as below and with the helpful link provided, I looked it up which said "unfortunately there is no way to recover or reset it" --- so according to this user's other option of uninstalling-reinstalling, I suppose that's the only option available. But would that correct the reset for resetting a new Master password?  I'd like to know before I do that.  Thanks.
