Re: AVAST PASSWORDS HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED..? OR NOT??

Please ... Can ... some Good Samaritan .... explain to us what REALLY happened to AVAST PASSWORDS .... ????

Just today I am paying for AVAST license upgrades and have been surprisingly and unpleasantly notified that AVAST PASSWORD HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED!

After reviewing the notes about it, I find that it has been discontinued ....
BUT that it has been incorporated into Avast Antivirus.

However I continue to read on the forum that has been discontinued ....

And in chat with AVAST technical support ... they told me that it won't work anymore .... (THEY DID NOT SAY THAT I WAS INSIDE THE AVAST ANTIVIRUS NOW)

So I think the issue should be MORE CLARIFIED.

We probably have more than 300 keys within AVAST PASSWORDS ....
and WE CANNOT LOSE THEM .... :'(

CAN WE PRINT THEM? PLEASE... :P

Cordially,
Mary

Hi,

Please note that Avast Passwords has been put on hold with the ultimate goal of adding this feature to Avast BreachGuard in the future. Those with an active license for Avast Passwords will automatically be migrated, once a solution has been integrated into Avast BreachGuard.
It is not available to new subscribers.
Since you have a subscription for Avast Passwords, it will still to work for you.
Currently, if your subscription expires it will also continue to work unless you uninstall Avast Premium Security.

To export your Avast Passwords data (and print them) please follow these steps.
1. Open Avast Premium Security on Windows
2. Go to Privacy > Passwords
3. Click on Settings
4. Click on Import / export data
5. Click on EXPORT TO FILE
6. Give the file a name and save it to a folder/location of your choice.
7. The file extension will be .json and you can right click on it and select Open with (e.g. Microsoft word, Notepad)

Nice, this is the second time Avast kills a password saving program that I was heavily using! Good that I was already thinking of switching to other - longer supported! - tools. I already switched my Android OS AV, because of the flipping licenced parts in and out, removing it from paid usage and so on!
Now I thinking of switching to an other PC-AV system, some are not so "flippy" with there existing and extrem used programs!
Sorry  :-\

This has worked well for me, https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=236960.msg1556900#msg1556900
Currently LastPass and the Avast PW manager both have the same information and when the Avast product stops, LastPass will be the sole password manager.

Avast Password does have an export feature. You can export your passwords to a .json file.
If your current PW Mgr. can except that format it should be easy to import.
If not, then one by one is the only method I know.
I ram Avast PW Mgr. and Last pass together for some time and LastPass learned
from Avast over time.
Currently they both have the same password history so I can stop Avast PW Mgr. at any time.

Is this still the case? I received an email today from Avast tech support saying "Please be advised that Avast Password manager has been discontinued by us since June 2020. This being said, at 1 point we will fully stop with the product. As you own a Avast Passwords license, you will be notified by our relevant department with further information about this in the near future".

Does this mean a new PW product release in the "near future" or "find another PW manager soon"?

It's currently still working for those that used it in the past. No guarantees for how long.
I've already migrated to Bitwarden.

Understood. My license expires in June, and if a new product is in the "near future", I might consider sticking with avast. If not, then I'll probably move on. The PW manager was one of the reasons I was willing to pay for avast, and now pretty much all of their competitors include one in their suite. I see Bitwarden is free, but as they say "when something is free, YOU are the product".

Hi,

Not under its current name or form. Implementing a password manager into another application is still being looked into.
