How NOT to import settings from Chrome?

  • Hi.

    Yesterday I switched to Opera on my home computer (Ubuntu) and everything went smoothly. Today I want to do the same on my work computer (Windows 10), but right after the installation, I saw all of my Chrome bookmarks and even passwords (!) already being imported to Opera - without asking me! After resetting Opera to factory settings, bookmarks etc. were gone, but all the passwords are still there.

    I want to start fresh, I want to get a clean browser without any previous history. How can I get that?

  • If you remove your profile and uninstall Opera ... when you go to reinstall, make sure you click on Options and then clear the box for importing data from the default browser.

  • Thanks! This "Options" link is gray and looks like a continuation of the "Terms and Conditions" text. It could be made more visible 🙂

    But the passwords are still there though... It's possible to bulk remove them, but still: it's not nice that such sensitive information is being imported without even asking...
