Where are saved logons and passwords stored?

I want to copy/backup saved logons/passwords for sites. Where does ASB store them?

Whilst I don't use the ASB, but as far as I'm aware they aren't stored unencrypted.

I think they might be able to export them (but not 100% sure on this).

As you can see, you can export your passwords to a file.

Open the Avast Passwords User Interface - Menu - Settings

Don't know why/how I missed the replies. But I cannot find a screen that looks like what is shown here. I don't have any screen that says "Avast Passwords" nor "Avast password Settings". Would  you please direct me to these screens.
Thank you.

When you did your installation, did you use custom and check the box to install Avast Passwords (old)?
If not, open the User Interface select menu, settings, Troubleshooting.
Scroll down and select Add Modify Components
When that opens, select Passwords (old) then select Change.
When the update is completed, re-star your computer.
You should then have the icon on your desktop for
