How to recover Opera Wand passwords

Opera was a great browser, but I decided to let go of it a few months ago. The only problem was that I was using Opera for a very long time, and I was depending on its wand feature to store all my passwords, now I’m stuck because I don’t remember many of those passwords, and some of them are tricky to reset (PayPal for example), so I came up with a method to reveal or uncover the wand passwords into clear text.

First you’ll have to use Opera and open the website with the stored wand password, for example Then click the wand shortcut (ctrl + enter) or click the log-in button (key symbol)

Quickly, stop the page loading after the wand username and password are added in the page.

Now the password is loaded on the page as dots ….. , the next step will be to reveal them as text.

right click the password field and select “Inspect elements”

On the developer console that appeared on the bottom of the page find the line below (it should be already selected if you right clicked the password field when you selected inspect element)

Now for the ahhhh moment, your password should now be visible in clear text in the password field, read it, remember it, and just walk away.
