"Weak Passwords" Section disappeared from my smart scan
« on: May 01, 2019, 11:13:49 PM »
Hi. Now when I run smart scan, there is no longer a "weak passwords" part in it. Why?

No. But when you run a smart scan, the following is scanned: virus scan, vulnerable software, browser add-ons, network threats, performance issues AND weak passwords. Now when I run smart scan, I can scan all other things other than weak passwords. Why is that?

If you don't use the Password manager, apparently that part isn't checked.
Probably because there;s no sense trying to seel you the pro version of the password manager if you aren't using the free version. ???
