With Vivaldi, you can store your account login credentials in the browser.

Saving passwords

When password saving is enabled, every time you log into a new account you’ll be asked whether you wish to save the password.

If you discard the prompt for saving a particular password but want to do it later, click on key icon Save your password on the right side of the Address Field.

In case you clicked Never, you won’t be asked whether you wish to save the password on that website again. In case you’ve change your mind, go to chrome://settings/passwords (the link will auto-correct to Vivaldi settings) and delete the website from the Never Saved list.

If you don’t want to save passwords or use other tools to manage them, you can disable the feature in Settings > Privacy > Passwords by unticking Save Webpage Passwords.
