How to Save and Manage Passwords on Opera Browser

The Opera browser offers to save passwords and usernames in local storage. It offers complete management of the saved password, like editing, deleting, and blocking the site from offering to save the password. It’s safe since all the passwords are stored within your computer and protected by the system password.

The Opera Browser has repeatedly proved why it is better than its contemporaries. With time and the advancement of technology, Opera has also improved itself and provided the necessary updates and features that every user might need while browsing the web.

Opera also constantly brings new updates that make it easier for users in the long run. It offers numerous useful features, but one worth mentioning is the ability to save and manage stored passwords.

When managing so many online accounts and social profiles, we often forget the username and passwords. Social media and other websites like Prime and Netflix have passwords to manage too. Nevertheless, Opera is here to help to remember all the passwords with the corresponding usernames.

I have more than two accounts on Instagram. One is my account, and the other is used professionally for my other interests. It becomes challenging to remember all the passwords at all times.

Hence, I started using the Passwords Manager in the Opera Browser to automatically log in to my Instagram accounts without fussing over remembering them all.

The Opera Browser has always lived up to the expectations of its users. No wonder it has always been so highly recommended and rated by users worldwide.

One of the many features provided by Opera is the Password Manager feature for autofill. It stores all your passwords to different websites in a single place and helps you sort through them.

Moreover, you also have the option to add new passwords and edit or delete old ones. You can also enable or disable the automatic sign-in to websites and the saving of passwords. All this is available under the same Password Manager tab.

The Password Manager feature is very efficient and helpful as I manage many accounts simultaneously. As it stores all my passwords, I don’t have to worry about logging into the websites repeatedly.

  1. how do i get opera to list in alphabetical order – it takes me ages to find the site I am looking for as they seem to be in chronological order

  2. I had Opera ,,have But all of a sudden it has 5 other apps show where did my passwords go ,,before when I opened it took me to sign in then my passwords I need that ,I’m 73 I can’t remember them all ,!!*

  3. How do I import a password? Usually this feature works, but for one website, I closed the save password box, and I can’t get it to offer to save the password now. I tried clearing cookies, quitting and reopening Opera, turning off “offer to save passwords” and quitting and reopening Opera, and it still won’t offer to save the password for this site. It’s NOT listed in my “never save passwords” list. All I did was hit the X on the save password banner, and now I can’t get it to come back.

    I’m not seeing an option to import a password, because this is one I really want Opera to save, and I’ve never had issues getting the banner to return after closing it before.

  4. Opera’s password saving feature is a pain in the ass for years! If you google on it you will notice this immediately. Most frustrating is that the answers were also the ‘standard ones’, it never goes deeper or you get the feeling Opera’s developpers are involved and willing to help.

    On my computer websites open because the password was stored. But these passwords are not shown in the ‘password list’ as mentioned in this article. (just a few are visible). Only this computer runs Opera 90.0.4480.84 and there is no account involved.

    Please developper, google for this issue and try to help people out. Do not ignore this issue.
