About

How it works?

Opera stores the password in encrypted format in the file called 'Wand.dat' at its profile location. The Opera profile location is different for different versions. Here are the password file (wand.dat) location for recent versions of Opera.

For Opera Version 10 and above
[Windows NT/2K/2k3/XP]
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Opera\Opera\wand.dat

[Windows Vista/Windows 7]
C:\users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera\wand.dat
 
For Opera Version less than 10
[Windows NT/2K/2k3/XP]
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Opera\Opera\profile\wand.dat

[Windows Vista/Windows 7]
C:\users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera\profile\wand.dat
 
Opera stores following information in the password Wand file for each of the stored entry in the following order,
  •  Login URL of website
  •  Main URL of website
  •  Username field ID
  •  Username
  •  Password field ID
  •  Password
All these information are stored in the encrypted format in wand.dat file. Opera uses Triple-DES algorithm along with static salt data to encrypt these secret information.
