Search Results for 'keepass'

My setup has been the same since quite a few years now: I have a Keepass file on Dropbox, and I use several different applications and apps on multiple devices to access and update that file. Which applications, you ask? On my Macs as well as on my Xubuntu machines I will use Keeweb. Despite […]

A couple of months ago I started my search for a good iOS app to replace MiniKeePass; I even wrote about it briefly on November 15th. The situation became very urgent when I switched iPhones two weeks ago: everything moved swiftly from iPhone One to iPhone Two – except MiniKeePass, which had disappeared completely from […]

A few days ago I tried to use KeePassium on the iPhone. Yet another KeePass app, you say? Yes – because it pays to be open to change, and in this case because KeePassium promises to sync automatically with any of a list of cloud storage providers. That promise means you can not just use […]

From time to time, I spend some time (sometimes way too much) to check out the applications I’m using. Certainly on mobile devices the available options for a given function can change quickly, and it’s always useful to see if you’re missing out on something a newer application has to offer. My most important app […]

I have been writing about KeePass since 2009, because I have been using this tool (in one of its many guises) since then. Last year, around June, I tried to upgrade to the then latest version 2.29 of the official release. On my Mac, all in all, things did not work out that well. To […]

Contrary to most pure hardware tools like a hammer, software tends to evolve over time. These days, software evolves faster than ever before – and at the same time most pieces of software that we use regularly are also interconnected with other software. Think of your smartphone, where the operating system updates the apps running […]

The list proposed isn’t perfect, but multiple items on the list are a good start: “Security Checklist: Be safe on the internet“. It’s an “open source checklist of resources designed to improve your online privacy and security“, and it does cover the basics: a password manager, strong passwords, two-factor authentication where possible, device encryption, etc. […]

Accounts with passwords are a standard way for securing access to your own data and tools, but passwords aren’t always as safe as we would like them to be. Password stores get hacked sometimes, but what’s worse: the time needed to extract a plaintext password from its encrypted state is getting shorter and shorter every […]

The usual caveat applies: it’s just a list, and thus by definition subjective: The 100 Best Android Apps. The selection looks good, though. It lists several of the tools that I installed after a personal inspection of the alternatives: Go SMS Pro, My Tracks, Camera360, Barcode Scanner, Evernote, Google Docs, KeePassDroid, Andricious and Read It […]

I must admit that it wasn’t on my list of absolute necessities when I choose the San Francisco smartphone, but it turns out that my predilection for OSS pays off once more. Indeed, transferring my passwords from my Palm (where I use the Palm Keyring application) to Android turned out to be very simple: just […]

Now that I have found the way to move GNU Keyring passwords from my Palm to my Mac, how about the reverse? After all, it’s easier to manage textual data on a Mac (or even a PC) than on a Palm, and KeepassMobile on the Nokia is read-only. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell […]

You know how it goes: another mail account, a change of provider, another website that requires registration, another machine with some kind of code, … So I’m happy to tote all them all around with me on my Palm Tungsten E2 – using the Palm version of GNU Keyring. A great little program – I’ll […]
