Questions about Opera sync encryption options

  • In Opera Sync there are two options as below

    Encrypt only synced passwords with your Opera credentials

    Encrypt all synchronized data with your own sync passphrase

    I have a few questions on these features which I hope would benefit more opera users too:

    • Which of those options is user-friendly?

    • Which of those options is more secure? For example though outwardly Opera Credentials seems to be implicitly covering up the passphrase requirement how about if that credential is breached would all other saved ones will be at risk?

    • If we use Opera Credentials and we change the same, will Opera take care of re-encrypting all saved automatically or we should reset them and start all over again?

  • @lavanyadeepak-0 Both are user friendly. One encrypts only the passwords and the other encrypts all synced data.

    If you change your Opera account password, you probably will be prompted to provide the old password in order for your synced saved passwords to be decrypted.
