avast browser and password manager
« on: November 30, 2019, 05:02:25 PM »
Avast password manager does not seem to work in the avast browser.  The password manager icon/tile is checked and I logged into password manager before opening the browser but it doesn't seem to give me the option of opening or filling in the passwords. ???

What happens when you click on the password icon in the browser?

I don't see a password icon in the browser like in chrome or firefox.  Top right there is the avast icon but it is the security and privacy center.  When I hit it, it gives me the tiles for which services are running or open and password manager is checked.

Is the password manager turned on?

Have you gone into the P/W Manager itself to make sure you are signed in and in settings,
browser integration, re-add Secure Browser.

That was it.  I knew I needed to add the extension, but wasn't sure how to do it.  Works fine now.  Thanks so much for your help.
