backup password file

  • i wanted to do a clean install of opera but i wanted to backup all my saved passwords.any quick way of doing this?i can view them under settings but i have tons of them so that would be a bit tedious.before there was wand.dat but i cant google something similar for the new opera.i was having issues with opera freezing my computer while browsing and im currently using firefox for weeks now without any issues but i wanted all my passwords back.thanks in advance!

  • if you just want to reinstall Opera, you can backup your Login Data file (among others, eg. bookmarks, Cookies etc)

    that file is in your profile folder, and to see where is you profile folder, the most easiest way is to click on O-menu button (left upper corner) and then on About Opera

    there you'll see it under Paths

    you could also use synchronization (bookmarks, passwords, ...), I think that's recommended way
    Before reinstall, login to Sync (or create acc if you don't have it)
    http://prntscr.com/b2q1m8
    and choose what to sync, so that Opera can backup all you passwords to sync server

    once you reinstall Opera, login again into your Sync account in new installation, and Opera will pull all your data from Sync server
    If you don't see sync button, click O-menu >> synchronization

    additional info:

    1. In case you are reinstalling OS (system), manually backing up passwords file won't work after OS reinstall, because that file is linked to OS installation for security reasons. In that case, only option is synchronization.

    2. Also, I think that passwords file from bigger Opera version won't work in lower Opera version
      eg. if you copy Login data file from developer version 38 into stable or beta version 37, you won't see your passwords in beta and stable.
      Other way around works (from stable 37 to dev 38)

  • C:\Users\X\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable is the path as per opera when i went to about.i saw bookmarks under my profile folder but no file or folder there says passwords.

  • Hi,you could download and install https://www.safe-in-cloud.com/en/ and then import the Chrome bookmarks and save to the cloud and then import .

  • C:\Users\X\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable is the path as per opera when i went to about.i saw bookmarks under my profile folder but no file or folder there says passwords.

    As said, the file that stores your saved passwords is called "Login Data".
