Want to view a saved password in Vivaldi browser? Like other web browsers, Vivaldi can store your username and password combinations in it’s password manager. That feature allows seamless, one-click login on most websites. But using browser’s internal password manager often leads to forgotten passwords. This tutorial will teach you how to recover a password in Vivaldi browser.
Once your browser stores a username-password combination for a website, you don’t have to remember or enter the password to login to that site. But what if you forgot a password and want to login from a different browser? You’ll have two options for password recovery – a) reset the password by going to that site and b) retrieve it from your browser’s password manager. The first option is often complex for many sites. You may have to prove the ownership of that account. How about the second option? If you had allowed Vivaldi to store your password, you can easily retrieve it from the password manager. But how? Continue reading and learn how to view passwords stored by Vivaldi browser.
Steps to view saved passwords in Vivaldi:
For privacy reasons, the stored passwords are kept hidden from the browser interface. The Passwords section in Vivaldi Privacy settings page displays a list of stored logins. But it shows only the website URL and account name. There is no option to view the passwords. You can retrieve the stored password specific to an URL by following these steps:
- Open Vivaldi browser.
- Copy and paste the following in the address bar: vivaldi://chrome/settings/passwords. Then press Enter button on your keyboard.
- The Passwords settings tab will appear. You’ll see the list of all saved username-password combinations. Obviously, the passwords will be hidden. Click on the password that you want to view. A Show button will appear. Click on that button.
- You’ll see a re-authentication window asking you to enter the password of your computer (Windows user account password). Enter it and press OK.
- You’ll see the password. Copy it or write it down. Once done, don’t forget to press the Hide button next to the password.
- Press the Done button to close Password manager.
So, that’s how we recover a lost or forgotten password from Vivaldi browser. Did it helped you?

Did you entered the correct URL? vivaldi://chrome/settings/passwords

Yes i did, but it just opens regular settings page. And passwords section doesn’t look like those on your pictures – there is no password field, just accounts name (just like it is stated in your paragraph before step 1), and there is no “Never saved” section either.

After fresh install of Vivaldi, it is working.

Now how do you turn OFF asshat windows reathentication?
Hesiris on 4th Sep, 17 09:09am #
You really shouldn’t be able to, it’s a security feature. Otherwise if you leave your computer unlocked anyone can get all your passwords in a couple of seconds.
Considering that you are already logged into windows already, you should know the password and you shouldn’t be accessing this page that often anyway.
Unless of course you are actually trying to steal someone’s passwords, in which case: don’t do it, it’s rude :P

lol…”it’s rude” he says….if you’re brave (or stupid)…..stealing passwords COULD also have men with guns and badges looking for you toooooo :P

I can confirm this way DOES NOT work in vivaldi 1.12.955.36 Still looking how to watch my saved passwords.

If it does not work for you, try with: chrome:settings/paswords

This seems to be the only way I can access these settings now… directly typing vivaldi://settings/passwords does not seem to work…
XweAponX on 18th Jun, 18 01:06am #
THAT does it. Thanks.

It is now:

This is the correct url to use:
And I don’t even have a degree in network administration.

First attempt to use vivaldi://chrome/settings/passwords brought the message that the webpage was not available.

When clicking on the password entry box, Vivaldi 1.13 gives me in a dropdown the option to “Show all saved passwords”, which if followed brings me to the `vivaldi://settings/passwords` URL in the main article, which is a win.
Vivaldi 1.15 does not give me that option, and that URL sends me to the Vivaldi settings main page (that is, that URL is not supported).
BUT if I type the URL `chrome://settings/passwords` instead, it shows me the page as in this article. At that point, the URL in the bar is back to `vivaldi://settings/passwords`, which if followed still brings to the generic settings.
An inconsistent but fortunate behaviour (to me at least, who could recover a password).
All this tested on Linux.

Neither ‘vivaldi://chrome/settings/passwords’ nor ‘vivaldi://settings/passwords’ work in ‘Vivaldi 1.15.1147.64 (Stable channel) (64 bits)’ [French version] [macOS High Sierra 10.13.6, latest one, up to date].
The former send me on an invalid URL page, the latter on the first tab of the settings.

chrome://settings/passwords works in version 1.15.1147.42

In my 2.0.1309.29 version, both the chrome: and vivaldi: settings menu work, but they seem not to be integrated. E.g., I wanted to change or remove a saved password after I changed it outside of Vivaldi. Fighting my way through Windows authentication (it works, but is highly oblique; I had set mine up with a PIN and had to use that hidden, optional method — this is Microsoft’s fault for using unusual nomenclature), I found the password list in both chrome://settings/passwords and vivaldi://settings/passwords but changing the latter list didn’t change the former list. Maybe it’s because a copy of the actual Chrome browser is also installed on my system, or it’s just some kind of update lag.

Out of date!

One MUST use
If you use vivaldi:// preface you get the “startup” screen with a Search box. Interestingly, once you enter chrome://settings/passwords/ the address bar in Vivaldi says vivaldi://settings/passwords/ !!!
