Avast’s password extension for Chrome is one of the top password managers and data management software on the market. It allows users store all their passwords in a secure encrypted vault. It also comes with an integrated password generator that helps to create strong passwords. The program is available for Windows and Mac computers.
While the free version of Avast Passwords provides many of the essential features users require, there is a premium version that offers additional features. Some of the most beneficial features include automatic blocking of advertisements, support for numerous browsers and devices and the ability to synchronize passwords across devices. Premium version also includes mobile apps and enhanced security options, for example, the ability lock passwords with fingerprints or pins and safeguard against phishing and malware websites.
Avast Passwords can cause problems for some users. These include an inability to sync passwords across devices, as well as data loss when a device is reset. Other issues are related to browser integration especially when using Incognito mode. Try these solutions if you’re experiencing any of these issues:
First, check that the extension is activated (go to More tools > Extensions and ensure the button for Avast Passwords is activated). You may also want to make sure that you are not using Incognito mode in your browser. It is also important to ensure that you are running the most recent version of your add-on.
