Avast login via google/facebook - secure?
« on: July 30, 2019, 11:49:32 PM »
I'm curious, if someone were to gain access to either my Google or Facebook account, then they would be able to login to my Avast Passwords by clicking the "login with Google" or "log in with Facebook" buttons? (see attachment) :-\

Hi figueroa419,

Even if you log in using your existing Google or Facebook credentials, it is still necessary for you to enter the password linked to your Avast Account.

Really, I assumed that was the point of signing in with Google/Facebook. So I guess I'm not understanding the point of that then.  As long as it's not a security issue,  I'm good.
