Is Malwarebytes Browser Guard really needed when using Kaspersky?
How is Kaspersky Password Manager working for you?
If you change from Kaspersky to another antivirus what to do with your passwords?

Your right, I have now removed it.
How is Kaspersky Password Manager working for you?
I have been using it for about 7 years now without any issues. I find it very easy to use.
If you change from Kaspersky to another antivirus what to do with your passwords?
I'm not sure what you mean? I use Kaspersky Password Manager no matter which AV I have used in the past.
