Where has avast passwords gone?
« on: June 29, 2022, 10:28:57 PM »
Please help, I seem to have lost all my saved passwords and I can't find the app again to fix it.

I noticed the other day that the auto fill element of the app had stopped working, meaning I had to manually go into the app and copy the relevant password. Without looking into it further, like a lot of apps, I chose to uninstall it and then reinstall it. I uninstalled it but then it turns out that when I try to search for the password manager in the play store, it is no longer there.
Does anyone know what my options are as if I can't get the app as, having done a bit of research, it seems avast has discontinued the app, how do I access my saved passwords to maybe move them to another password manager?

Try the following:
Open the User Interface> Menu> Settings> Troubleshooting
Scroll down and select Add/Modify Components
If Password (old) is NOT checked, check it and select change.
After it completes, you'll need to restart your computer.

So I don't know how the attached Avast Free image would be related to Avast Passwords for Android, if that is what the OP is using.

OOPS, I didn't notice that. That changes things and I don't have an answer. (Thanks David)
I don't know if there's any help here:

otherwise the user needs to wait for Avast to reply.
