First and foremost, I will admit that I screwed up, and I know all my passwords are gone, and I probably skimmed over the important warnings that would have saved me from this mess.
However, I do have a recent export of my passwords from LastPass (I was migrating after their announcement) that I can re-import, and start over , but I can’t figure out how to start over. I can’t get to the user settings, because it’s behind the Master password. I also don’t see any way of nuking it from the admin account (which is a separate NC account from the user account with the lost password). I did try disabling and deleting the passwords app from the NC server, and then re-installing and re-enabling (only to find the password screen still there, once I logged back in).
For those interested in how I got into this predicament (and would like a laugh at my expense):
I turned on the End to End Encryption, and had a lot of problems getting it to take a password (might help if the page listed the requirements, and yes, I had 12 characters). I finally gave up and let the browser extension generate a random one for me, and I used that . Smart fellow that I am, I made sure to save it in the Passwords vault, so I would have it. I did not realize that I would need this password to get back into the passwords app even from the web page.
Yes. I locked the combination in the safe.
I really like the app and the integration with multiple browsers and devices, and I would like to keep using it. I just can’t figure out how to get back to a place where I can start over.
