Avast Passwords
« on: September 14, 2020, 04:14:41 AM »
If I lose my phone or I upgrade my phone how will I be able to transfer my passwords? I have read somewhere that you need a 6 figure code to unlock your passwords which was sent to customers when they first synchronised or first downloaded the application. I don't have anything of the sort I do have this.

Thanks a lot, I understand completely the 6 digit PIN is if you want a duplicate Avast password Android app running on another phone at the same time. That's right, right? 😏

On any other supported device, yes.
