[Solved] Stored Password Security
How are stored passwords secured in Vivaldi? Firefox encrypts them when you set a master password. Where would I find documentation which might answer questions such as this? Is there an option to view stored passwords (like Firefox has)?
Vivaldi uses the encryption password manager of the Linux, f. ex. Gnome Keyring or kdewallet.
Passwords in Vivaldi can be inspected with opening chrome://settings/passwords/
On my setup the passwords are not secured at all (not regarding the obfuscation by sqlite as security), and can be retrieved from a terminal through:
sqlite3 ~/.config/vivaldi*/Default/Login\ Data 'select origin_url,username_value,password_value from logins'
So you dont use a passwortmanager on your Linux which protects you logins.
I use neither gnome nor kde (or any other desktop environment), and thus not gnome keyring or kdewallet. And I don't really see any use for a login/password manager outside of my browser. However, if vivaldi actually doesn't store passwords as plain text in the "Login Data" database, I'd consider setting up kdewallet (or, preferably, a vivaldi-compatible manager that doesn't pull in a lot of kde or gnome dependencies).
