  • thanks all, but actually knew about that, I actually never had a OS password deeming it not so necessary, and actually still think so! But I did make a password to try out this feature, and lo and behold, it still does not ask me for any password before revealing passwords! Now what?

  • Forgot to mention, that yes, I did obviously reboot when trying this out. I'll try again soon maybe

  • I actually never had a OS password deeming it not so necessary, and actually still think so!

    Well, if you really care about privacy and security, then you should have one.

    It would also help preventing data loss if someone using your computer do something wrong.

  • But I did make a password to try out this feature, and lo and behold, it still does not ask me for any password before revealing passwords! Now what?

    Have you changed any flag?

    Maybe you need to try a reinstall.

  • I have a password set up on my OS (Windows XP SP3), although the OS is set to log on automatically.
    I'm not asked for it when I look at my saved passwords on Opera Developer, it just shows them!
    :eek:

  • Check specifically

    chrome://flags/?search=passw#password-manager-reauthentication
  • Like I said, it does not ask for password before revealing passwords. Is this a bug on the xp version?
    Plus, what I meant to say before was, that ideally, whenever Opera enters a password for you automatically, it should ask for a quick password first. My idea is that you have to press a certain key within 5 secs, and you only get few tries!

  • Check specifically
    chrome://flags/?search=passw#password-manager-reauthentication

    Checked that out, and the setting is on its default.
    Disable prompting is disabled, which should mean that it does prompt (how I hate double negatives in things like that, couldn't be more confusing!)
    I did try the "enabled" setting, no change to the behaviour.
    🙂

  • The prompt comes up for me on Win10, fwiw.

    Same for me. Do you have to enter your OS password to gain acceas to your desktop?

  • Like I said, it does not ask for password before revealing passwords

    Do you need to use your OS password to access your OS desktop?

    If yes, did yiu reinstall Opera after have created a OS password?

  • Same for me. Do you have to enter your OS password to gain acceas to your desktop?

    Yep.

  • Yep.

    So maybe it depends on how you access your desktop for the password to be asked or not.

  • No, because I have specially set a OS password, restarted, but still Opera does not ask for it before revealing!?

  • No, because I have specially set a OS password

    But you need to type it to login into your desktop?

    estarted, but still Opera does not ask for it before revealing!

    After a reinstall? Maybe Opera only gets the info when being installed.
