I have downloaded and installed KeePass.  I set up a new database and choose a password.  Now, what happens when I go to one of my websites that I have an account on?  Do I put in the user name and the new pass word that I set up with KeePass?  How does the website know that there is a new password?  I didn't go and change it on each site.

hello, you do not need to pay for password managers. You can use
KeepAssXC which is free, open source and accccessible with which you
could hide your passwords in its encrypted database and save it in
your USB drive or on cloud.

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.
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.

Your steps were very straightforward. I think I've done this before, but
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
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
the file on Dropbox. It's like KeePass doesn't fully support a true
option, even though I selected that option when I set up the app. It
be nice, but I once overwrote some entries when I saved my iPhone file
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
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
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.
