@justahero See the comment by Christian in the Feature Request topic: Include VPN in Browser.
At least you posted in the right place, as this is a service the Vivaldi would have to provide like they do for Webmail.
@doctorg said in Two Factor Authentication Scheme for Vivaldi.net Account:
The Vivaldi Sync server does not sent a decryption password to you. It sends encrypted sync data to your PC and uses the Sync encryption password (which is always stored local on your PC) to decrypt data locally.
You described my understanding perfectly 🙂
I never said Vivaldi sends you either of those passwords. I still think that this is 2FA - in this case, 2 "something you know"'s. But I'm always open to arguments otherwise 😉
It's actually more 2FA than GMail, for instance, which uses "something you know" and then "something they send you"
Maybe this article helps clarify 2 step validation vs 2 factor authentication? https://www.techradar.com/news/two-factor-authentication-vs-two-step-verification-youve-probably-missed-this-tiny-difference
@ouros Why did Gwen-Dragon leave? She is a female and minority member and shared her identity and address and was threatened through various channels:
I had to remove my account on vivaldi.net due to repeated attacks, harassment and threats via email and chat.
I don't wait until someone stands at my door after mail and telephone terror and makes threats come true. Sociopaths and haters can be found everywhere, even in a cosmopolitan Vivaldi forum
She will likely not come back. You may post on her blog though, in German or English:
@luetage My idea, which I did not explain well, was that it is done in a decentralized fashion where Vivaldi would benefit but would not be the sole vendor.
Essentially, a master list of partner sites could be kept by the vendor, and a token could be distributed by the vendor in such a manner that everyone can read as much as they want, within reason.
Sites can declare required payments with a meta tag or JS, stating:
Coin or Token Name
Proof of Payment API endpoint (send payment details including cryptographic signature in order to receive a proof of payment such as a cookie)

@thomasp I would definitely want to add and remove synced devices via a web interface because currently there are duplicates from same device when we add sync to new installation.
But it would be better if that problem is fixed by Vivaldi team.
Or, at least hide synced devices from cloud icon on desktop just like we can on mobile.
@murz Personally I wouldn't mind Vivaldi using telemetry, but I believe Jon Von Tetzchner has said several times that they do not believe user telemetry gives good data on what users actually want.
Using telemetry you just end up with what the lowest common denominator of user wants. And you end up doing what other browsers do, removing lots of useful features that are still used by a minority of very dedicated users, dumbing down the browser to accomodate the masses with no technical skills, and alienating the users who loved the browser in the first place.
Vivaldi wants to listen to its users, and not see them as data points and statistics to be mined.
They always forget that Vivaldi has about 12 developers, commissioned to create Vivaldi for 5 different OS and a list of 4000 feature requests, apart from the Buglist.
If Vivaldi had 300 developers, one could talk about these things, but it is not like that.
Even so, I wouldn't be surprised if Vivaldi 5.0 has AI and becomes self-aware in v6.0.
I doubt everyone will search for that blog and read the whole blog. I am not asking Vivaldi to make the browser open source, just attach the source link to the main website homepage. A very small thing but people will be able to see it there.
