epic browser and password free avast
« on: August 10, 2019, 05:33:47 PM »
have got a new pc with windows 10 on, was recommended epic browser. (which i think is part of google chrome). i synced my new pc with old pc and this shows up in the password box, but it is not filling in passwords. can i use the password maker/ storer with epic browser? if not, how do i move my passwords out and to another password keeper? thank you. ;D

okay, so i have installed chrome browser and done the rest up to the last bit, 7, i have copied the url and then opened the epic browser , pasted in and pressed enter and it takes me to the chrome page store page with the avast on but there is no install button ??? i will read through and try again, but i wonder if i am reading the last two steps wrong (6 and 7). ???

You're welcome. Also take a look at Bob's video.

the video was brilliant , but didn't work for me . i have taken a photo of what i get when i have copied the link into the new browser, and then what i get when i tap on the add extension from chromw web store box.
notice there is no install or add to chrome on the web store page. i have even signed in to google, still didn't  work.

Hi ajdstitch,

I don't believe that it is possible to install the Avast Passwords extension in the Epic Browser, because it blocks any add-ons from being installed via the Chrome web store (the only add-ons that can be installed in Epic Browser are the 7 that are available on their own web store).

that's what i am thinking. is there help on this site for exporting the passwords from avast to a new password manager???  i notice that i can export to google chrome, can i then move them off that and on to the epic browser? thank you.

In the video I did say this works for MOST chromium based browsers. The restrictions in the Epic Browser prevent any third party extensions from being installed.
You'll probably need to keep your current browser and access the Avast Passwords Manager for any passwords you don't know till they have been assimilated into your browser.
( I personally don't like to store my PW's in any browser.)
