We’re glad you asked!
- Register and create a master password:
We recommend registering on the web dashboard to get the most out of Avira Password Manager at https://passwords.avira.com. The web dashboard can be accessed from any device. You will then be prompted to create a Master Password.
Don’t forget to add our browser extension under Settings to benefit from all the product features.
Download the app from the App Store or Google Play Store and have all your passwords with you, wherever you go. You can login with the same credentials as your dashboard, or you can set up an account and a Master Password within the app itself.

Your vault is where you can manage your passwords and notes, view the security status of your accounts, and edit Settings for a more customized experience.
- You’re all set!
Say hello to an easier and more secure online experience.
The dashboard provides you an overview of all your passwords, credit cards, and notes and shows you the security status for your accounts. In Get Started, you will find valuable tips on using the Password Manager. You can also see all the devices you’re using with the Password Manager installed under Connected Devices.

Your data is stored locally on your device and in the cloud. Avira Password Manager encrypts your data with your Master Password, which only you know, and therefore only you have access to your data.
Storing the data in the cloud has two key benefits:
- Your data is regularly backed up to keep it safe.
- You can always access it from multiple devices.
Sure, you can! Avira Password Manager lets you import your passwords from your browser or from other password managers. Click on Import data under Settings.
Browser: For users with a Windows 10 system, you can directly import your passwords from your browser into Avira Password Manager.
CSV file: Export your passwords into a CSV file from any password manager or browser and import them on Avira Password Manager. After the import, we recommend deleting all unencrypted CSV files or storing them securely.
To prevent your passwords from falling into the wrong hands, we recommend switching on the Auto-Lock function under Settings. This locks all your passwords and notes after a set period, and they will only be accessible with your Master Password.
If you lose a device with the Password Manager, go to Connected devices on the dashboard and remove the lost device. You will be locked out of Password Manager on that device.
Your Master Password is used to secure and encrypt all your passwords and data. Your Master Password should be long, random, unique and easy to remember.
Here are two ways you can create a strong Master Password.
1) Passphrase method
Think of 4 random words which you can easily remember and link them together with special characters. Make sure you use both uppercase and lowercase letters.
2) Sentence method
Think of a long sentence which you can easily remember. Use the first character of each word to create your password. Use uppercase and lowercase letters and combine the letters with numbers and special characters.
Example: The car is green – it has two doors and four wheels = tCig-ih#2D&fourW
You have two options:
a. You are still logged in on a mobile device with biometrics:
If you are still logged in on your mobile device and have fingerprint, touch ID, or face ID activated you can set a new Master Password on your mobile without losing your data.
To do so, please go to Settings and select Change Master Password and follow the instructions.
b. You are not logged in on a mobile device:
As Avira does not know your Master Password and therefore does not have access to your data, there is no possibility to restore access. You have the option to reset your account and set a new Master Password, but this will erase all your existing data.
To do so, when prompted to enter the Master Password click the “reset account” link at the bottom and follow the instructions.
We’ll be disappointed to see you go! Before you delete your account, we recommend exporting your data. To delete your account and all the data held within Avira Password Manager, please follow these steps: On the online dashboard, under Settings click Delete Avira Password Manager data. Then uninstall the Password Manager browser extension from all your browsers. Also delete the Avira Password Manager app from all your mobile phones and tablets. Your Avira account will still remain. If you choose so, you can delete your Avira account at my.avira.com. If you were unhappy with anything, we’re always grateful for feedback as it allows us to improve our products. Thank you!
