Ratings and Reviews
I have used KeePass on my Windows box and on various Linux boxes for years, and have no reason to change. I was curious about the key file feature and decided to try it out. It works fine on Windows, I could use a not so obvious name in a total different directory making it very difficult for anyone to hack into it. The problem arises when I tried to use it on my iPad. I keep a copy on Dropbox so as to be able to get a fresh copy wherever I am, but KeepPass doesn't talk directly to Dropbox. In order to use the key file you need to name it exactly the same as the database, with the extension of .key. How secure is that? You might as well not even use a key file. I prefer to call it something totally different and keep it on a separate drive. It even lists the key file name in the logon screen, to give potential thieves a leg up. Whoever thought of that one should go back to mommys basement until he learns how to hide data. Other than being unable to do searches for a key file of your choice on my iPad, I am happy with the way it works. I haven't tried it yet on my phone. I'm sure there will be something similar.
Great App - Works Exactly As Described!!
MiniKeePass has always worked perfectly for me and it does exactly what the description says it can do.
Many of the negative reviews complain about issues syncing to their cloud storage (e.g. Dropbox) but it's clear from reading the description that MiniKeePass doesn't have automatic cloud sync functionality. What it says is you can export to and from Dropbox or any other cloud storage app.
How it works using Dropbox as the example:
In Dropbox browse to the KeePass File you want to open in MiniKeePass. With the file open click option - Export > Open In > Copy to MiniKeePass.
This creates a copy of the file on your phone that only MiniKeePass can access. You can open and use this KeePass repository in MiniKeePass but any changes you make are made to this local copy and won't sync automatically.
You can manually sync or overwrite the original file with the one modified in MiniKeePass but opening the file and clicking the arrow then "Import with Dropbox". It will prompt you to choose the location and you can overwrite the copy in Dropbox with the copy you modified in MiniKeePass.
Hope that clears this up for some of you. The developer worked hard to create a great app that does exactly what it's supposed to and is free so don't be so quick to complain and criticise before you read the description and know if the app does what you think it should.
Simple, Secure, and Reliable.
First of all ONLY use the recommended KeePass ports from the KeePass website!!!! Don't trust any others IMO!!
Ok, so this app is on the trusted list on the main KeePass website where you can download the PC official version of KeePass. So that by itself should tell you something of how trusted it is. That's a good thing.
This app is just as secure as the main KeePass program for your desktop/laptop computer. Between having the option to use a finger print and then enter a password with lots of different types of characters, the level of security is pretty top notch for a password locker.
The interface is about as basic as they come which is great. Everything is so simple to use and navigate. Entering data is super easy. Being able to import/export password files is a nice thing also.
Don't keep your password file on cloud storage!! If you do then you are an idiot. That is about the dumbest thing you could ever do. So stop it, now. Seriously. Not even kidding. I make a physical backup of my password file whenever I update it from my PC or iPhone and put it on a 1gb USB drive and then I lock that into my big gun safe which is literally built into my wall with concrete and big bolts. It would take an act of God to break that thing open or steal it. You get the idea? Keep your password file secure!! Be smart about it!
