I presume you didn't receive anything on the account listed for the forums here? Usually the sync account and the forum account are the same. (And yes, as a moderator I can see what email address you listed here. Though I won't do so in public, but I can send you a PM if you like.)
@captpete Two-month-old post found through a Google search, but here's what worked for me. I changed my email and password, then successfully logged into my Opera account on a Firefox browser on Windows. I then linked my Opera account and my Facebook account. Logging into the Opera browser app on Android using my linked Facebook account worked, but entering my email and password did not.
@roalda said in How is sync data visible at sync.opera.com if it's encrypted with a password?:
I'm wondering the same. I'm testing Opera for Android 47 beta and have setup syncing. For encryption I have selected "Use a sync passphrase". The line under this option clearly states: "Encrypts all synced data".
However, when I login on sync.opera.com with ONLY my Opera Account credentials - I have NOT entered my sync passphrase - I see data like Speed dials, Open tabs, History etc. When you state "Encrypts all synced data" this should not be possible without entering the passphrase first.
Today, I have tested it again. To start fresh, I have removed all data by selecting "Reset sync data" on sync.opera.com.
When I first setup sync (including passphrase encryption) on Opera 54 for Windows and then login on Opera for Android 47.0.2249.129124, the data shows encrypted on sync.opera.com.
Then I removed all sync data again. When I then setup syncing on OfA ONLY (including "Use a sync passphrase"), all data on sync.opera.com is visible, hence not encrypted.
@itowwill 1) That message appeared for no reason? Had you ever enabled pass-phrase use in Sync? Did you change your sync password? Did you reinstall your OS?
Why didn't you use your already existing username?
Yes, it's yours. It's the new user you've just created to post in the forums.
I've been having the same problems as above. I am 200% certain I've followed every instruction given by Opera on synchronisation on both my laptop and desktop (5 times over). I hope somebody at Opera is looking at this thread. I'm not going to bring this to their attention directly. Why? I expect that they'll simply take me through the whole process again, then blame some virus shield or something. How? This is what all organisations do, instead of investigating their software more carefully at the outset. So I do not have an hour of time (or more) to spend on this.
