  • Hello! There was such a problem, I wanted to update Windows on my computer and for this they recommended completely removing all my old programs, since it was necessary to transfer Windows to another disk (they said that he would not see them in the future). I had to remove my main browser, namely Opera. All my account passwords were saved in it, but I knew which mail the account was registered to. After reinstalling Windows, I happily downloaded the browser, tried to log into my account, but I was constantly getting an error that the password was incorrect. I lost confidence in the fact that I remember it at all, because I have many different passwords to prevent accounts being hacked. I had to restore it, but this was not a problem, because I still had access to the mail. After the long-awaited recovery, I went to my account and decided to synchronize data, that is, all bookmarks, passwords, etc. But when I tried, I was given a message that I need to enter the old password to recover the saved passwords. I have been sitting for 5-7 days without having access to passwords to enter the accounts I need. I wanted to know if it was possible to somehow find out from support the old password, with the same message to the mail to which the account was linked (because there is access, nothing has changed, not the city of registration of the account, not IP). You can say that you can simply recover passwords from the accounts I need, but there is one problem .. I have not only many accounts, but also 10+ email addresses ..

  • @i3elmer Your synced saved passwords are encrypted using your Opera account password, unless you have setup a passphrase. So, to get your saved passwords in a new installation, you need to provide your old Opera account password.

  • @leocg I tried to enter one of my old passwords, but all the options I tried were wrong. It is possible to somehow find out the password, even by mail from the opera account. I cannot remember the old password, the new one does not accept. Access to the mail to which the account is registered is available.

  • @i3elmer If you can't remember the old password, you will not be able to get your synced saved passwords.
