Recovering lost passwords

  • Hello,

    i was recently effing around in a windows command line (Windows 10) and i guess i stepped on security eqivalent of a landmine. Basically all accounts on computer and in browser were logged off and Opera deleted all so far saved passwords

    I understand this is a security feature but is there any way to recover my passwords? I have Sync but that is like two years outdated. Is there a way to recover them from some local data file?

  • update: in folder Opera Stable i found that Login Data file still hasall the login onformation saved (url and login) but passwords themselves are hidden or encrypted. I was advised that widows login credentials are used for securing these. While my windows was in distress i in fact changed my user password.
    So, is there a way to go around this windows authentication?

  • @draimero Can you see the list of saved passwords in Opera password manager?

  • @leocg nope, only the rest non-hidden part information when i open the "Login Data" with notepad
    aside from that there is no trace of them
