I'm locked out of my unemployment because Vivaldi's password syncing is buggy and innadiquate.

Just a warning for anyone who expected this to work as advertized.

I was able to recover the password from a second computer that's supposedly in "sync" with this one.

I can't understand what this type of message is supposed to do, especially because password sync has been working properly for years with all my devices on Android, Linux and Windows.
If you have a problem, describe it and many user here try to help.

This was supposed to warn people that it doesn't always work right. I have two computers with WILDLY differing passwords saved, both logged into the same account with the same configuration.
Glad it works on your end.
Edit: I did not mean to imply that it would fail in every scenario, just that if you rely on it sometimes the rug might be snatched out from under you.

Vivaldi doesn’t have proper password management. If at all, use casually for unimportant websites but store all passwords elsewhere additionally. Personally I only store passwords for inbuilt mail and sync with it.
I recommend to use a external password manager like Keepass as after a new setup of some OS, passwords are lost because of OS encryption key restrictions!
Exteernal password managers like Keepass has no such restrictions. Keepass can store its encrypted database on a stick or copied to an other PC, the only need is to remember or write down in a safe space the keepass database unlock password.
This was supposed to warn people...
And it's a worthwhile warning! Keeping all your eggs in one basket is a bad idea. If you have important information you really need to have, it should be kept in more places then just the password manager of your browser.
This BackUp Guide would help.
I learned many years ago, backup anything important. This applies to your entire PC, not just a few passwords being stored in a browser.
Of course, for complete security, don't even use a password manager
@Poida , agreed, my brain is more secure than a server of an password manager. I use this system
With this you can use 1234 as password on a post it, pasted on the monitor.
@Catweazle Interesting app.
I've actually used a similar method to this system, that I do in my head, for years and can remember every password (all unique) I have, each getting the green tick of approval from the associated site for strength / security.
