Re: password managers


 

Hi Robin,

 

You like the same things about KeePass on the computer that I do. I’ll add that I got the KeePass for Windows free and KeePass Touch for 99 cents. This was a very hard price to beat. And I much prefer to manage all my KeePass passwords on my computer with a full-sized keyboard and use the iOS app for pasting passwords when needed.

Alan,

Your steps were very straightforward.  I think I’ve done this before, but it felt cleaner this time, for whatever reason.  I’m saving your steps.   To your point, I think the browse thing used to open to iCloud by default and that was throwing me off. This time, it opened to Dropbox immediately.   Interestingly, as I swipe to hear the files in my DropBox list, I am hearing VO say “in iCloud”  just before the date and file size.  Not sure why that is, but the header at the top clearly says Dropbox and it’s the list of files on my DropBox account.

 

I’m sticking with managing my entries on my laptop. I just couldn’t’ figure out how to get a change I made on the database with KeePass Touch to save to the file on Dropbox. It’s like KeePass doesn’t fully support a true synching option, even though I selected that option when I set up the app.   It would be nice, but I once  overwrote some entries when I saved my iPhone file back to Dropbox, so I’m a bit gun shy about it. 

 

I do find the Window app very easy to use with JAWS.  I like the simplicity of the interface, use of context menus and old-fashioned menu system.

Hi Robin,

 

I also use KeePass on my Windows 10 computer and KeePass Touch on my iPhone 13 Mini. Those two are both accessible and enable me to store what I need without any fuss. I like that when a KeePass Touch entry is open on my iPhone, I can swipe to the password field and do a single finger double tap on the screen and the password value is automatically copied to the clipboard for easy pasting elsewhere. I always manage my KeePass password  entries on my desktop computer because I find having a full screen keyboard available for input much easier. I also keep my KeePass database file in a Dropbox folder and these are the steps I use to update that database file on my iPhone when I’ve changed the database on my computer:

 

  1. Open KeePass Touch. If the app prompts you for Face or Touch ID and opens your database file, place focus on the Files back button in the upper left corner of the screen and double tap.
  2. If you don’t automatically open an existing database file, you should already be on the Files screen.
  3. On the bottomline toolbar at the far right is an Add button which you should double tap.
  4. You’ll be given options to Create new database or Import. Execute Import.
  5. Two mor options of Browse and Cancel will appear and you should execute Browse.
  6. I think because I upgraded to iOS 16 earlier today, I was taken directly to iCloud drive which I did not want so I executed the More button from the top line menu.
  7. I then swiped to Dropbox and double tapped.
  8. I then swiped to the applicable KeePass database file and double tapped on it causing it to load and for KeePass Touch via Voiceover to provide the most recently date of update. Touch or Face ID should have granted access provided you have them set up here.

 

I believe those steps were fewer by two or three steps the last time I did this but as I said, I updated to iOS 16 earlier today and I expect that caused the steps to be a bit different.

 

I’m not totally up-to-date on the latest news but I’m pretty sure I heard something in the past few days about LastPass being hacked. You might let your employers know about that.

I am using KeePass on my Windows 10 laptop and on my iPhone.   It’s very accessible with a simple interface, although I’m sure I’m not using it to the fullest.  My only annoyance, and this is likely my ignorance, is that I’m storing the shared file on DropBox and it doesn’t’ seem like  my iPhone opens the newest version of that file on my phone.  It might work better if I was storin the file on iTunes, but I just haven’t gotten there or spent the time to research it. Because of this, I only update the database on my Windows laptop and  just pull the new file to my phone. I just don’t have the synching sorted out in my head.

 

But I like that it is free and a really simple interface.  I haven’t tried  any other apps.   My company is now using LastPass and I need to explore that, but it’s low on the list of things to conquer.

Hi list,

Which password managers are the most accessible with Jaws and also have an Accessible IOS app? Has anyone used “dashlane” before? Thanks for any info.
