Trick To View Wand Passwords In Opera

Magic HatOpera features an excellent password manager - Opera Wand, but provides no means to see saved password in Wand, I found myself into similar trouble and had to use a simple trick to recover saved password in Opera, we will be using the old school javascript trick to reveal hidden passwords in Opera.

Opera Wand Password Filling
  1. Open the site you want to see saved password off in Opera.
  2. Login using Wand button and press ESC key immediately, this will make Wand fill the password but stop auto-login so you stay on current page.
  3. Follow hidden asterisk password reveal trick and you will have your password.
  4. Recover Opera Password


You can go to opera:config page and disable "Wand Autosubmit" feature instead of pressing ESC.
This also helps with logging on some Javascript-based services.
