Password Manager Master Password

  • The forum moderator (?) leocg, apparently, wasn't bothered to -even- move the topic over to this forum (and had, just, locked it - so that I can't even inquire about it), so... I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing (!); hope that I'm in the right spot, now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Started a topic called Master Password v2 to try and get an answer to the previously-closed -unresolved- topic, Master Password.

    It's the many-times asked (and answered, without presenting a viable solution) question about Opera not having a master password to lock and protect its Password Manager.

    Are there any secure alternatives (such as an Extension, or something); a solution which doesn't compromise security?.. Mainly because why would we trust a 3rd-party to add browser components which handle our sensitive data (the PWDs).

    ^^ For example, an (main) email account can be used to recover all sorts of passwords: for credit cards, various (online) credentials and so on. This missing feature is the number one reason preventing me (and, surely, many other users as well?) from using Opera as the main browser, on the computer. Just looking for a way to do this, that's all!..:)

    Thank you! (In advance, please let me know if - anything)

    P.S.
    Other browsers, such as Firefox (as well as old(er) Opera versions), have always had this:

  • Just to clarify: this is a request for Opera to implement a master password? Or you are just asking for alternative solutions to implement it?

  • I use KeepPass and an extension, didn't tested with the DB locally, it's not a Master Password but they are safe in KeePass.

    Edit:
    I was going to recomend truecrypt but now I read that it is discontinued, you may take a look here.
