Another... "passphrase" problem...

  • So, I logged into my opera account just fine. Then instead of syncing, it asks for another password, one I know for a ding dang fact I have Never actually set, personally. This is so very confusing and even frustrating; I have two opera accounts I have to erase the data from just because I don't know some mysterious, nebulous "passphrase" I couldn't even find the option to set. I have never set an opera sync password and I beg of y'all, let me know if there is a way I can reset it without losing all my synced data

  • @lucialechance If you have changed your password at some time, it will show that message when what it really wants is the old password so it can decrypt the encrypted parts of your data.

  • @sgunhouse sorry dood, maybe I wasn't specific enough. I don't reset my password often for accounts and stuff; even if I do though, I only ever use a selection pool of perhaps 6 or so different passwords, though each one does have its variants. I have tried my entire repertoire of passwords and their variants and nothing is working. Opera sync is asking for a password I never even set.

  • @lucialechance Did you change your computer? Reinstalled the OS? Maybe you need to provide your (old) OS password.

  • @leocg For Sync? No, that's not it.

  • @lucialechance Hello..... how did you manage to get a text box for the passphrase? I want an old password which I had saved.... I have never setup a passphrase as far as i can remember... there is a link pertaing passphrase in th e Opera Sync webpage but it's only for complete information wipeout... Thanks in advance..

  • @sgunhouse sorry dood, perhaps I wasn't adequately explicit. I don't reset my secret key frequently for records and stuff; regardless of whether I do however, I just at any point utilize a choice pool of maybe 6 or thereabouts various passwords, however every one has its variations. I have attempted my whole collection of passwords and their variations and nothing is working. Drama sync is requesting a secret key I never at any point set.👈

  • @jodihic611 Opera needs both your current key and your old key to access encrypted Sync data (passwords at least).
