Can hou recover accidentaly-removed login credentials/passwords?

Posted

Hello,

I accidentally removed ALL passwords instead of one. Is there some way to recover it? Or will they return once I sync with my other device? Or would that only make them disappear on that device too?

Thanks

On what device (mobile, desktop (OS)) did you remove the passwords (you posted with a mobile user agent) ?

You would normally need a backup of logins.json to restore passwords, but on mobile this isn't possible.

In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.
