[Solved] Opera does not import passwords

  • Whilst I consider Opera as being a really well designed browser, it is completely useless since I cannot import my passwords from Chrome. So I have to have either Chrome or MS Edge as my browsers.

    Is there a remote possibility that the Opera controllers will ever rectify this serious fault and come into line with other browsers ?

  • In Chrome, goto the URL chrome://settings/passwords, click the 3 vertical dots to the right of "Saved passwords", and export your passwords to a CSV file.

    In Opera, goto the URL opera://flags/#PasswordImport, enable the import flag, restart Opera, goto the URL opera://settings/passwords, click the 3 vertical dots to the right of "Saved passwords" and choose to import the csv file you generated with Chrome.

  • Until Opera comes into line with other browsers, I will give it a miss.
    Fiddling about with various commends and creating a CSV file on Chrome is simply not worth the effort when Chrome and Edge are superb browsers with no problems whatsoever.

  • First, in chrome settings, go to export passwords, then you can import passwords in two ways:
    Go to the URL opera://settings/import data and import your passwords from Chrome. While importing passwords, make sure that the Chrome is closed.
    You can also import the CSV file; in Opera://settings/passwords, the "import" option will be available.

    I placed "opera://settings/import data " in the URL and nothing happened.

  • @johnbull44 There is no space between import and data, it should be opera://settings/importData

    Anyway, you should try importing passwords in opera://settings/passwords

  • @leocg said in Opera does not import passwords:

    opera://settings/importData

    They never worked either.

  • @johnbull44 Strange. It work if you through settings page?

  • @leocg

    If I use Settings import passwords, It only acts a split second, says DONE and has done nothing.

  • @johnbull44 Any difference if you import through opera://settings/passwords?

    Can you import the passwords in other Chromium based browsers?

    I have tried to import passwords to Opera using all kinds of methods but they all fail.
    No problem importing passwords to my other browsers.
    I do not favour fiddling about with importing a CSV file. Not worth the effort.

  • Got It !

    I enabled the import passwords in Opera flags - clicked the 3 dots against passwords - import - a panel came up showing my files - clicked the CSV file - Chrome passwords which I had exported and saved from Chrome and all my passwords came up in Opera !!

    Problem sorted and thank you so much for your help.
