Passwords



  • How can delete all saved passwords in bulk?



  • @komir, did you try settings>privacy>cancellation icon on right side of website url? appears when cursor is hovering over.



  • Hit Ctrl+Shift+Del
    Select dropdown Delete Data for: Everything
    Select Passwords
    Button "Clear Browsing data"

    Or quicker
    Close Vivaldi
    Start shell
    rm ~/.config/vivaldi/Default/Login\ Data*

    Hi @Gwen-Dragon
    Just to let you know this command won't work with quotes.(ubuntu 16.04)
    This works for me rm ~/.config/vivaldi/Default/Login\ Data*
    But if you're using the keyring to store passwords it won't remove passwords anyway.



  • @CantankRus Reedited my post with shell command. Sorry.

    Hmm, yes, you're true.
    Passwords in keyrings will not be deleted with my shell command.



  • So do I understand the keyring option right, that passwords are secured by my keyring password?

    Then a master password or password manager would not be necessary?

    The keyring passwords are secure but I still use keepassx as a backup because I can't just copy the
    ~/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring to a new Ubuntu install.

    Each vivaldi profile seems to be unique and the passwords are saved as such.
    My passwords saved to the keyring are assoiciated with chrome-5319256
    If I delete ~/.config/vivaldi, a new Vivaldi profile is created and newly saved passwords are associated with chrome-2506190 and Vivaldi doesn't see the previous passwords.

    So doesn't seem that keyring passwords are easily transferable to a new install other than copying from a password manager.



  • As i remember you have to backup/restore your GNOME or kwallet keyring and its config, too!
    Then all should work on a new machine.

    But i have not tried yet with current Linux coping around such user configs.



  • @Gwen-Dragon
    After doing some tests found if I copy ~/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring to another Ubuntu install
    I have to also copy over ~/.config/vivaldi/Default as that profile is associated with the saved login.keyring passwords.
    Once you logout and back in the new login.keyring is accessible.
    This was tested copying from an Ubuntu 16.04 to an Ubuntu 16.10 install using the same login username and password.



  • I also copied the Vivaldi and Gnome Keyring files from Debian 7 to Debian 8 and it worked.



  • @debunix Yes, that's the way it works.
    As i said before.



  • At the moment I think the best method is exporting passwords to a .csv file as described by Gwen-Dragon here.
    No need to copy over any Vivaldi config files.
    Works with any vivaldi profile and passwords exported to csv from Vivaldi, Opera or chrome.

    The passwords are imported by the browser and stored in the $USER login.keyring.
    For security you can compress the csv file to a password protected zip file.
    If using zip you will need to install p7zip-full to unlock the password protected zip archive.
