Keepass Droid App

When you deal with a lot of computers and networks you have a very large list of passwords you need to remember.  You can set them all the same but that would be a security risk, all you would need is for one place to compromise your password and everything would be exposed.  I use the program Keepass to keep my passwords secure.

There is a version of Keepass on every operating system so no matter what you are using you will be able to work with your passwords.  I use Dropbox to keep the password database file in sync across all of my devices and computers.  That means as soon as I add a new password I can then access it anywhere I would need to.

The passwords database is password protected and can be setup to use a key file as well.  If you want to use Dropbox to sync the password database file then I recommend using a key file which is not stored in your Dropbox EVER (Dropbox keeps files which have been in it even temporarily forever unless you go into the website and delete the deleted files).

What I find very useful is that you can store the login URL of the passwords so you can open the URL and use the programs auto type your password so it never even has to be exposed on the screen.

Another feature I really like about this application is that it can be used to generate completely random passwords.  It will then save them in the database entry for the password you are creating.

    Keepass isn’t nearly as user friendly or well supported as RoboForm. RoboForm actually offers live U.S. based phone support. Can’t even get an email from Keepass. Don’t even get me started on the lack of security in Drop Box, I personally have used GoodSync ever since Drop Box allowed users to log into any account without a password for multiple hours. Google the headlines, you probably won’t be using Drop Box much longer either once you see how insecure it is.

      Keepass is open source and community supported and completely free.

      I use Dropbox with Trucrypt, for anything secure, I would never trust keeping any secure files on the cloud unless I manage the encryption myself.

      Since a key file is needed to decrypt the keepass database and that key file is not on Dropbox the file can not be decrypted even if it was given to someone.
