Password manager



  • Hi, till I discover Vivaldi, I was using Firefox Linux because of few extensions they have. One of them (and this is what I need to have) is plugin for Keepass2 named KeeFox for Linux. Do you have in plan to develop something like that? I know there is CKP - KeePass integration for Chrome but it is too slow, extension response time it to slow, few sec per click and dont have lot of features like KeeFox, CKP is so bacis What about Vivaldi passord manager, how secure is it? Thank you

    It's the Chromium password manager, so it is exactly as secure as that.



  • Hi, cant find where is password manager, to edit stored passwords?
    Can be passwords stored remotely so access that from another PC?
    Thank you

    Full password manager is not yet built into the UI, so you have to use the Chromium one in Vivaldi at chrome://settings/passwords

    No, passwords cannot be stored remotely yet - the developers are working on sync and access to passwords using multiple devices may become available as sync evolves.



  • @Komir

    I am also concerned or lets say was thinking about this too

    But you can do a small test Just like what Ayespy said go here chrome://settings/passwords

    yes you will see all your user names this means who ever gets there will see it also but they are unable to do any thing because it asks for you wind login password ,, and that only you should now

    I did a few tests and ran in it Loops me back to windows Log on password so far so good i will keep playing with it if anything comes up will update

    cheers



  • What about KeePass integration into Vivaldi?
    There one in Chrome extension, but, dont have feature to save new password.



  • On Linux the passwords are encrypted with a key stored in GNOME keyring or Kwallet keyring.
    The password themselves are store in the files "Login Data*" in Vivaldi profile.

    You can send passwords to Keepass with ChromeIPass.
    In Login fields select the contect menu ChromeIPass -> Save credentials
    That's all.

    The built in password manager is the same as Chrome which is not liked by some people. I don't mind and just use it for less important websites.



  • Thank you.
    I follow this tutorial https://www.maketecheasier.com/integrate-keepass-with-browser-in-ubuntu/ to implement, but, cant make it work, plugin is not showed in Keepassx2



  • Sorry, i cant support you because i don't use Keepass on Linux.



  • If you want safe logins, use Keepass to insert logins in Vivaldi and forbid storage of logins in Vivaldi.

    @vbop:

    as Chrome which is not liked by some people.

    You quote a old but fixed problem. The database is not plain text any more. You can't read it easily.



  • OK, thank you, anybody else?

    looks like one's in beta, the other is good. never heard of either. i use vivaldi ss on rpm linux, and i use keepass. auto-type is too convenient in keepass for me to bother with a vivaldi extension.

    I'm using chromeIPass and it works beautifully. Takes a little to setup, though.



  • @NSANE Yes, KeePass2 program and chromeIpass extension works fine.



  • Good day everyone Newbie here. I have not had the pleasure of using the chrome password managers since I have a Computer at home I have mobile devices and have a Lap Top in personal custody and in the office. To supplement my security I do use Last Pass which is cross platform mobile integrated with android as well. For every website I do different passwords for my own security since I have documents but I don't do much cloud work. I have found the Last pass company to be very efficient in managing the keys and passwords being multi browser cross platform and cross device as well. I would invite everyone in the community to have a look. All the services they give are a Freemium but they have a paid service as well. I am using their Freemium services and it's ADEQUATE for the secuirty needs of my company. It's just to offer you guys an alternative. Roboform is also a good Mainstay but the Direct Competitor of Lastpass is really DASHLANE but their services are more stringent in the paid area and are not as generous on Freemiums as Last Pass. It's for your personal consideration. Kee Pass is very good but I'm just saying these products are equally well if not better depending yon your needs.

    chromeIpass allows saving new passwords. i use it and like it.



  • @komir Vivaldi needs its own password manager just to be secure.
    Using other programs is risky because you depend of Chrome extensions that has never been (and never will be) reliable.
    Why shall I install/mantain a third party component for something that all the people needs?

    My wish list is:

    1.Master password.
    2.Enter logging information manually.
    3.View saved passwords.
    4.Backup/Restore saved passwords.
    5.Button and sign that the email form logging information is available.



  • @RROO

    I have to disagree with you. I would think Vivaldi got other areas to solve before developing a secure password manager. I find it better and more flexible when the passwords are maintained outside the browsers, with extensions if you like.

    I have used Kaspersky Password Manager for years. It works well with latest release of Vivialdi. Even though Vivaldi is not a supported browser. The only drew back I have found is that you cannot set Vivaldi as your default browser within the setting on the Password Manager. Accessing your cresidentials from the browser works well, but if you start from the Password Manager, it will open Chrome.

    @RROO: Vivaldi will get its own password manager. And with the arrival of sync, there will be ways to "back up" passwords after a fashion.
