The question here is not whether you trust dropbox, but whether you trust keypass. If your password vault gives up its secrets when someone else gets hold of it, then you will want to find something else. Keypass uses AES-256 for encryption, which remains the de facto standard, and SHA-256 to create a key from your passphrase along with a salt. So the ...

You can create a copy of a password entry: And then only use references for username and password in the new entry: Then, adjust the URL in the new entry.

Edit Easier way: View > Configure Columns... > Asterisks This lets you change the setting and set a keyboard shortcut. Or as it is pre-configured, just hit Ctrl+H! I had the same question and have found a better solution thanks to answering this question. The menu item seems to have disappeared somewhere during a version update. To manually ...

No. If you forget this master password, all your other passwords in the database are lost, too. There isn't any backdoor or a key which can open all databases. There is no way of recovering your passwords.

I've been a long time KeePass user, and if I were tasked with justification, I'd probably do the following: Skim the sites FAQ for all of their details about security. Everything I've seen there will practically sell itself. Show the longevity and support for the project, indicating it isn't going to be dropped by the wayside anytime soon. Show off a few ...

Regarding the ability to use 'key files' with KeePass. In order to generate the 256-bit key for the block ciphers, the Secure Hash Algorithm SHA-256 is used. This algorithm compresses the user key provided by the user (consisting of password and/or key file) to a fixed-size key of 256 bits. This transformation is one-way, i.e. it is computationally ...

In the 'Edit Entry' window, click on the little box (show/hide password using asterisks) next to the password box. It will show the password in plain text. KeePass will not remember this setting as default. If you want KeePass to always remember your setting, you should go to Tools > Options > Advanced and mark the checkbox of Remember password ...

I work voluntarily on various IT related projects, where we are groups of people that share passwords, and the different groups all share their own KeePass databases via Dropbox. All users are then required to have a personal KeePass database wherein the key to the shared databases are stored. This allows us to have a very secure password on our shared ...

Just go to File->Export and you should have the option to export to a .kdb file.

KeePass pro version is .net and supports mono so runs fine on Windows, Mac and Linux, and supports opening files over ftp. Alternatively you can use KeePass1/KeePassX with a Dropbox account, that way you don't have to open the file over FTP, you just allow Dropbox to sync the local copy of the file every time you make a change. (Dropbox supports Windows, ...

I usually just create different database files and share them with a Dropbox link. Having two different files with two different random keys. I'm using version 2.09. I have a "personal.kdbx" database that has all my personal stuff and a "company-name.kdbx". I usually use the "key file" option to open the databases since it's easier to the people I share ...

I am not familiar with Wine, but version 1.16 doesn't show up on this WineHQ listing for KeePass, so perhaps KeePass 1.16 isn't compatible. However, there is cross-platform program KeePassX that was forked from KeePass for Windows that you might want to check out. How to install KeePassX on Ubuntu.

Keepass does not encrypt files or folders, it is simply a tool for keeping your passwords safe and organised. If you installed a program that locked and/or encrypted your files, a solution really depends on the program you used. If it simply changed NTFS permissions or similar, it is a trivial task. If however you used something like True Crypt, you could ...

If you've forgotten it because you just changed the master password, you can do what I do in the future: Make a backup copy that uses the old password. Make sure this has the new password in it. Change the real copy to use your new password Keep the one that uses the old password around until you know the new one so well you don't even have to think about ...

Well, doesn't seem like there were any, so I hacked together a quick php script to do it. If anyone else needs to do it. Run this script, paste the exported csv in the textarea, and input the outputted csv file to keepass. <?php if (isset($_POST["submit"])) { //Loop through, build a multi array; $parsedCSV = array(); //Columns (in order) to ...

KeePassHttp is a plugin for KeePass and not for KeePassX; KeePassX has no plugin interface and is not a front-end for KeePass.

1.x doesn't fulfill your first requirement: "need it to be compatible on many systems (linux, mac, windows xp/vista/7)". 1.x is Windows-only. 2.x, on the other hand, runs under .NET and Mono, so works on Windows, Linux, Mac -- anything that Mono works on. 2.x is the one that can work almost everywhere, not 1.x. Based on your post, 2.x is the only version ...

If you have mono you don't need OS X packaged version of keepass, compiling from source is also unnecessary. Easiest way to test if 2.19 does what you need is to download zipped version of it. When zip-package is extracted you can simply run: mono Keepass.exe IF latest version is working for you then creating a small script and adding it to dock to ...

Original poster, are you using KeeFox plugin ? ( If not, it's advisable because it will solve your issue. ) A solution that worked for me was : install Firefox web browser, this does not work in Chrome or Iexplore as far as I know install KeeFox plugin and ensure it works with keepass on some test website like gmail.com in URL field, enter : ...

The whole point is to keep your passwords secure, so this is a no-brainer: password. If you use a key file and you lose control of your password database, your passwords are all exposed.

I run Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) and KeePass Portable 2.0 works for me. It also appears to work for others from the later responses on this thread: [SOLVED] Mono & KeePass 2. People who initially complained about crashes have reported it to be working for them on the final Jaunty release. As for installation, get the latest Portable Keepass Professional ...

I have used KeePassX Alpha Release mentioned in previous posts, but have found MacPass to be a great alternative. It feels more like a native OSX app, attempting to create a native OS X port of KeePass. It can Open/Save some Kdbx and Kdb databases: Save and load unprotected databases (no password, no key file) Removed! Load database with only ...

I have tried to use Keepass on OSX, but it doesn't work very well; it is slow as hell and crashes all the time. I ended up getting KyPass Companion from the AppStore. It works very well and supports both Keepass 1 and 2 databases. The downside of KyPass for some people might be that it's not free.

I got this kind of issue upgrading keepass version years ago. Be sure that you use the same version than before.

I just tried this in version 1.14 of KeePass under Windows XP SP3: Alt+0009 (numbers entered on the numeric keypad) And voila! A tab character was entered into the editor, per your request. :)

As of 19/Dec/2012 the https://github.com/anirudhjoshi/lastpass2keepass script does indeed work. Just export your LastPass data in CSV format then run it through the python script, then import it into KeePass (I used KeePassX)
