Lost the password of the encrypted passwords

  • Hello dear tech, user,

    Excuse my english, I'm french.

    I use Opera since 2008 and I'm in the first big and only one trouble.
    With previous versions of Opera, when I changed my OS or computer, I used to back up "Wand.dat" file with all passwords to import it in the new OS or computer.
    Since Opera 32, this need disapears, thanks to the developers! But my Windows 10 crashed and I had to reinstall W10 from scratch. I put a security password for all my passwords but after many tries, impossible to remember. Or maybe I mixed up with the auto generated password for the Opera account and I put this as the security password.
    So help me, if you can find in databases my passwords (231 passwords in total!)

    Thanks you

    Pierre

  • Please? :-)

  • First of all, never post in a topic - specially your owns - in less than 24 hours after your last post unless for reply someone else comment or to add new information. Posting in a topic in less than 24 hours just to bump it is not allowed.

    Also remember that this is an users'forum.

    That said, have you checked https://sync.opera.com/web/ ? Or maybe http://www.opera.com/pt-br/help/account#password ?

    If you can't remember or recover your password and you do not have a backup then i'm afraid there isn't much to be done.

  • OK. I already try the steps you mentionned.
    I always use the 3 or 4 same passwords, and I don't understand why I doesn't work here.
    Thank you

  • Have you reset your synced data?

  • No because if I do that, all my data (included passwords) will be erased from the server.

    For sure.

    And how about resetting your sync password?

  • I already reset my general sync password. But it's a different password, it's only for the Opera account.

    I thought it was possible to reset your password's sync password but it seems to be possible only by resetting your sync data.

    I guess there's not much to be done.
