Hi, Can someone recommend a decent external (or extension) password manager for Opera? So far I have tried Dashlane and KeePass and both do not work. Thanks, Ed

    try RoboForm. I use it. I got annoyed with it and used LastPass for awhile and switched back to RoboForm.

    I installed LastPass recently and I'm currently testing it. If I don't like it I'll test RoboForm. Thanks for the input.

      I'll just use the built in. There's import & export these days... through the flag.

      I don't understand what you mean. The "built-in" what? Import, Export trough what flag?

      he "built-in" what?

      Most probably the password manager as this is the subject of this topic

      Import, Export trough what flag?

      I don't remember how it's called at the moment but you should be able to find it by searching for import or export in flags page.

        enter: chrome://flags/ There's a search box. Enter "Pass" one of the found topics will be "Password import and export" Click that and set to "enabled" Now, when in Settings/Privacy and Security/Passwords you will see Import and Export options. Note that you can't add to the passwords without going to the site and logging in, then click OK on Save this Password.

        I did that, thanks for the help. However, I do not understand how that helps to import my Opera passwords into LastPass. Ed

        If LastPass allows you to import passwords, you can export yours from Opera and import them in LastPass.

        OK, that seemed to have worked. I exported the Opera pw into a cvs file and imported into LastPass. Thanks a lot for that tip.
