Built in Password manager question



  • I'm referring to the one that you can turn on or off in settings under Privacy, then under Passwords.

    How do I master password lock it? I've looked all over and can't find a place to do this.



  • There is not yet a master password to lock them but it was requested several times.
    Some password are protected via OS password manager on windows.
    I think something similar happens with keychain on linux but I can't be sure.



  • OK, thanks for letting me know.



  • @Felemur Hadden89's instincts for Linux were good. Gnome-based distros use the Gnome Keyring, & KDE/Plasma5 distros use Wallet [or KWallet]. I use the latter, & FYI here's some explanatory pics showing where it stores my V-SS website UserIDs & Passwords [slightly off-topic, but fyi i do not use any browser to store any of my "sensitive" user account info; they're all in KeePassX [offline]. However i still find browser-based password storage handy for "non-critical" stuff, like any interesting fora/blogs to which i subscribe, eg, Vivaldi :-) ].

    Curiously though i use V-SS, KWallet shorthands this as being only "Vivaldi". To satisfy yourself that Keyring or KWallet, depending if you're using either of those distro flavours [i've no idea at all what any non-Debian based distros do in this space], is really securing your V passwords, you can test by closing V, closing the ring or wallet, reopening V, then checking in Settings for passwords... you'll see they're all "gone".

  • I use KeePassX in Cinnamon Mint Linux for most passwords that are critical, but the Vivaldi one is so handy for a lot of stuff.

    Not sure if anyone else read this, but the LastPass browser extension is not secure: https://www.grahamcluley.com/lastpass-working-to-fix-major-vulnerability-responsibly-disclosed-by-security-researcher/

    The problem with Vivaldi not having a master password is that the only level of security for its saved passwords is the logon password in Linux. I would just prefer having 2 levels. If my computer was stolen, I would feel it would be a little safer that way.



  • I use chromelPass. Its usable. But there is nothing that compares to keepass/keefox combo in chrome/chromium userland. It's really unfortunate that chrome/chromium keepass apps are pretty bush league in comparison. If I had the programming skills and time I would try to write a chromium version of keefox but I have a sneaking suspicion that the reason there isn't one lays on the chromium side more than the app developer side.
