Avast’s password extension for Google is one of the most popular password managers and data management software available on the market. It lets users store all their passwords into an encrypted and secure vault. It also comes with an integrated password generator to make the process of creating strong passwords easier. The program is compatible with both Windows and Mac computers.
While the free version of Avast Passwords provides many of the basic features users require however, there is a premium version that comes with additional features. The most significant features include automatic ad blocking and support for a broad range of devices and browsers and the ability to sync passwords across different devices. The premium version comes with a mobile application and offers advanced security options like the ability to secure passwords using a pin or fingerprint, and guard against phishing and malware-related websites.
Some users encounter problems with Avast Passwords, including a failure to sync passwords across different devices, and the loss of data if the device is reset. Other issues are related to browser integration particularly when using Incognito mode. Try the following solutions if you are experiencing any of these issues:
First, ensure that the extension is activated (navigate to the Chrome menu and select More tools > Extensions, then ensure that the button for Avast Passwords is turned on). You may want to confirm whether you’re using Incognito in your browser. Also, make sure that you’re using the latest version of your add-on.
