How do I change a sync'd password?

  • At various times, I like to change my passwords for security. But I'm also lazy & use Opera to sync passwords between my many computers.

    Some sites, e.g., I've change the password, but the Opera sync'd password is still my old one. I don't get the little drop-down bar offering to update it when I over-type my new, correct, password.

    I can't find anywhere to edit or delete a sync'd password, without deleting the whole damn lot. Which I really really don't want to do.

    Can anyone tell me how to remove or update just one sync'd password?


  • @javickers In some sites you will get a pop-up banner asking you if you want to update the stored password as soon as you change it. In others you will need to logout and then login again for the banner to show up.

    In settings you can remove stored passwords but you can't edit them.

  • I'd try using an extension like Lastpass or Bitwarden as a backup since Opera sync is very slow to update any changes you make.

  • Also, export them to a .CSV from Opera itself.
