To see Opera's stored passwords, please enter your computer password.

  • OPera V47
    Why am I now required to show my computer password in order to see Opera passwords? Did I change a setting in my pc someplace that triggered this?
    I had been on V49 when this started showing up, but then did a system restore which brought me back to V47 but it is still happening.

  • @pdw It has always been required as saved passwords are encrypted using your OS login credentials.

  • At one time it was optional, there was a flag in opera://flags to turn it off or on. No idea when it went away.

  • I thuink I know what happened to cause windows logon each time I view a password. Note: I never had to enter a password in the past because I never had a windows logon!

    I recently created a Skype account which somehow required me to create a windows logon acct. After that, the entire browsing of passwords in Opera changed, for the worse. This must have caused it. They also made me put money into an acct, which I now cannot get back. Bastards.
