How do I reset my master password in Avira Password Manager?


Note
Your stored data will be deleted permanently and irretrievably when your master password is reset.




Workaround
If the Avira Password Manager app is installed on your mobile phone, you can bypass the password reset, and unlock the app with the Face or Touch ID on your device. Once your app is unlocked go to Settings and change the master password. This way you will not lose any data stored in Password Manager.

Password reset
In case you cannot make use of the described workaround, you have to reset your master password via the Password Manager dashboard.

  1. Enter your credentials and click Log In.
  2. Click Reset account in the bottom right-hand corner.
  3. Follow the instructions.


Hint
Avira Password Manager offers the possibility to export/import your existing data. With this option you can save the existing data or import new data.
