Free Trial end + Password manager
« on: June 03, 2023, 11:27:14 AM »
Hello,
I uninstalled and reinstalled AVAST free not long ago and realized they took out the very usefull password manager tool (the one that saves and generates all your passwords). So I used the free trial thinking it was now a paid feature but no they just stopped doing passwords manager. After a headache or two I finally managed to get the password manager back.

Now my free trial has ended and I dont wish to subscribe. The problem is that the antivirus, although still working, tells me Im not protected and keeps asking me to buy a subscription.

Do I really have to uninstall and reinstall free avast again to get rid of those annoying notifications? I'd really like to not lose the password manager again it was hard to reinstall.

Thank you.

If the trial has ended so has your protection.
If you do a custom installation of Avast Fee, you should be able to select Passwords (old) which is the Passwords manager.
Since it has been discontinued, I suggest you export your passwords to a file and install a Passs Word manger like
Bitwarden and import those passwords you downloaded from Avast Passwords.
