Re: Saved Passwords are secure??
I would like to suggest that Opera introduces a master password for its stored passwords, different from the computer login password. In my case I would make this a very strong password or phrase. It will seldom be required.
From reading the discussion on this and related questions the argument seems to be that I should ensure that my personal computer is well protected with a secure password. However I share links to this windows computer frequently, and I use the same password on a number of machines (all using windows) and up to now it has suited me to use a relatively simple and unchanging password. I further encrypt very sensitive data on the computer itself.
Another solution, that I have not looked into, would be to use a cloud-based service to store passwords. I do not trust such services and where I am internet speeds can sometimes become very slow.
I got quite a fright when I saw all my passwords, some extremely sensitive, exposed using just my simple PC password. In the short term I shall be having to switch off this function for all the services protected by such passwords. This is rather inconvenient.
