Watch our short video to see how Password Manager can bring greater security and convenience to your life.
Automatically create highly secure passwords
Too many accounts, too few passwords? Today’s passwords are hard enough to create, let alone remember. Minimum 8 characters. Numbers. Symbols... Password Manager generates and remembers unique, strong passwords for you.
Never forget a password again
Fed up of clicking “Forgot your password”? Avira Password Manager saves your passwords and unlike browsers, it encrypts them before securely storing them in the cloud. You can access all your accounts with just one master password and manage them from your online dashboard.
Automatically log in to your accounts
Say goodbye to tedious typing. Password Manager can be set to auto-fill your passwords and details on all your accounts (like in your browser). Online shopping has never been faster—or your Facebook profile so secure. There’s even an effortless auto-fill feature for iPhone and Android* that logs you in to your apps and favorite websites.
*Available for iOS12, and Android 8 (Oreo) and 9 (Pie).
Sync passwords across all your devices
PC, Mac, Android, iPhone, or tablet…enjoy the freedom to access your passwords from any device: Avira Password Manager is available as an online dashboard or smartphone app. The dashboard works in conjunction with the Avira browser extension you use to save your passwords automatically.
Is one Master Password really safe enough?
Much like online banking, Avira offers extra safeguards to prevent your Master Password from being compromised.
Touch & Face ID:
Access your passwords on your phone with just your thumb or via your phone’s face recognition software.
To log in, you can receive a security code on your phone (optional). Just enter it along with your master password.
All your passwords are securely encrypted and inaccessible, even to hackers.
Only you can see and access your passwords. Even Avira does not know what they are.
Avira is a security expert and abides by strict privacy policies. Your data is safe with us and won’t be shared with or sold to 3rd parties.
Includes mobile authenticator
Using two-factor authentication on Facebook, Gmail, Dropbox, etc.? If so, use Password Manager to securely generate codes to protect your online accounts from unauthorized access, even if your password was breached.
Alerts you to security and privacy risks to your accounts
Has an online account been hacked? A notification will appear in your security status if your data has been stolen after a breach.
Some of the websites you’re registered for may be unsafe! The security status checks whether the website is known as unsafe.
The security status analyzes your existing passwords and notifies you of weak or duplicate ones.
How to get started with Avira Password Manager?
Access the online dashboard
Visit https://passwords.avira.com and then log in with your Avira account or create a new one.
Set your Master Password
Then start adding new passwords and accounts or import existing ones into your online dashboard.
Myth 1: Your browser is just as good
Just clicking “Save my password” when logging in can cause you big problems later. Here’s why:
- Browser security is lousy: Passwords stored in your browser are unencrypted and vulnerable to hacking.
- Device wiped? So are your passwords: Clear your cache or factory reset and you’ll have to reset those passwords all over again.
Myth 2: 5-6 different passwords is good enough
This approach can lead to some serious vulnerabilities, which are easily remedied with our free solution:
- It’s unsecure: If one password is cracked, all the others are vulnerable.
- It’s hard to remember: On average, users have 26 online accounts. That’s a lot of variants to keep track of.
- It causes frequent password resets. With Password Manager, you just use one password.
Myth 3: Paper or password-protected documents are good alternatives?
This doesn’t necessarily give you security. And certainly lacks convenience.
- They’re not encrypted: If anyone were to take a sneak peak at your paper, you’d be in trouble.
- You have to take them with you: if you need access on the move, it can be highly impractical.
- They might get “tidied up”: Lose your password backup and you would need to reset all your passwords.

Say hello to an easier and more secure online experience.

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!
The free password manager from Avira
Data breaches are becoming more commonplace, yet what are they exactly and why should we be concerned? In short, a data breach occurs when personal data is accidentally lost, destroyed, corrupted, or disclosed. If anyone accesses your data or passes it on without your authorization, your data has been leaked or breached. You might recall the biggest data breach to date, the infamous Collections #1–5 in 2019. Five gargantuan lists containing 2.2 billion unique usernames and associated passwords were freely distributed on hacker forums and file-sharing platforms. The lists were a mash-up of various hacker attacks on corporate databases, but the timing and details of these attacks are still murky.
If a data breach is announced, it’s vital to check immediately if you have been affected and whether your details are floating around the dark web. Help is available: Have I Been Pwned allows you to search across multiple data breaches to see if your email address or phone number has been compromised. Similarly, this personal data leak checker lets you search for your email address in its 500GB database of leaked, hashed emails. (Did you know that hashing an email is a security method that transforms an email address into a random code? So, the email can’t be read even if it is stolen).
Are you and lazy passwords unwittingly helping hackers?
The more online accounts you have, the greater the risk of one being hacked. Sadly, far too many of us prioritize convenience over safety and use the same password, or a variation of one password, for multiple accounts. If one account is hacked, all accounts that share that password are at risk too, because cybercriminals are savvy and patient. They’ll systematically and automatically try multiple email-password combinations for many websites and online services. In the worst cases, they might gain enough of your personal data to steal your identity. They’ll then be able to order goods, sign up for subscriptions, draw money, and even apply for a credit card in your name!

Help protect your online accounts with the free Password Manager from Avira
It’s not easy to create and remember strong, unique passwords for all your online accounts. The rules for safer passwords are enough to make your head spin: at least eight characters long, mix in different character types, including numbers, symbols, numbers, and upper/lower case. It’s no wonder that “123456“ still comes in first as our favorite password. Speaking of passwords, the word itself ranks in the top five! Oh dear.
The simplest and safest way to help protect your online accounts is to leave the creation and storage of your passwords to a password manager—also called a password safe, login manager, password keeper, or password generator. The free Avira Password Manager offers a range of practical tools and seamlessly synchronizes across various devices and operating systems. It can be used on a variety of popular browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Opera. Mobile password manager apps for Android and iOS are also available. If you, add or delete a password on your iPhone, for example, this change will be reflected when you log in on another device in future. Manage all your passwords via the easy-to-use online dashboard, which also lets you see the security status of your user accounts.
The free Avira Password Manager comes with a password generator which creates highly secure passwords for you, so you won’t need to use your mother’s maiden name again. It then stores them in your password vault using bank-grade encryption, making life truly tough for hackers. The Password Manager can also be set to autofill your details when you log into your online accounts. Wave goodbye to tedious typing and password-reset emails.
Two-factor security for twice the peace of mind
Avira offers extra safeguards to make its Password Manager as secure as possible:
- Two-factor authentication means you need to provide two pieces of information to log in – your password and the verification code that's sent to the phone number or email you provided. This helps ensure that you're the only person who can access your account, even if someone else knows your password. There’s also a mobile authenticator, which is ideal for users of Facebook, Gmail, Dropbox, and other sites that use two-factor authentication. Use Password Manager to securely generate codes to protect these online accounts from unauthorized access, even if your password has been breached.
- A master password is set by you and it’s the only password you need to remember because it’s the gatekeeper to your password vault. Rest assured that your passwords and data are encrypted before being sent to Avira servers, so hackers can’t read them. Your data can only be decrypted using your master password—so it can only be read by you, provided you never share your master password! Not even Avira knows what your master password, so beware—Avira has no means of restoring or resetting the password should your forget it!
What makes the best password manager? The jury’s out and it’s up to you to decide what suits you and your budget. For extra protection for your online accounts, consider the premium Avira Password Manager Pro. It alerts you if a website you’re registered with is known as unsafe. It also notifies you if an online account has been hacked and your data may have been stolen. Plus, it puts you to the test! The security status analyzes your existing passwords and notifies you of weak or duplicate ones. So, stop using your dog’s name now, before Avira Password Manager Pro calls you out on it
Here’s how to import data from your browser or other password management system
If fear of manually entering all your existing passwords is stopping you, fear no more! Avira Password Manager lets you easily import your passwords from other systems.
- Got to you browser settings. Choose “Passwords“ and then “Export passwords”. Save the CSV file on your desktop.
- Open the Avira Password Manager online dashboard and log into your account or register for an account.
