    Keepass2Android

    Get it on Google Play

    Keepass2Android is an open source password manager application for Android. It reads and writes .kdbx-files, the database format used by the popular KeePass 2.x Password Safe for Windows and other desktop operating systems.

    The user interface is based on Keepassdroid (by Brian Pellin), ported from Java to Mono for Android. The backend uses the original KeePass libraries to handle file access to ensure file format compatibility.

    Main features of the App are

    read/write support for .kdbx (KeePass 2.x) files
    integrates with nearly every Android browser (see below)
    QuickUnlock: Unlock your database once with your full password, re-open it by typing just a few characters (see below)
    Integrated Soft-Keyboard: Switch to this keyboard for entering user credentials. This shields you from clipboard based password sniffers (see below)
    support for editing entries including additional string fields, file attachments, tags etc.
    read/write files on the web directly (supports FTP and WebDAV). You can use “Keepass2Android Offline” if you don’t need this feature.
    search dialog with all search options from KeePass 2.x.

    Browser integration

    If you need to lookup a password for a webpage, go to Menu/Share… and select Keepass2Android. This will

    bring up a screen to load/unlock a database if no database is loaded and unlocked
    go to the Search Results screen displaying all entries for the currently visited URL
    – or –
    directly offer the Copy Username/Password notifications if exactly one entry matches the currently visited URL

    Keepass2Android Keyboard

    A German research team has demonstrated that most clipboard-based access of credentials as used by most Android password managers is not safe[1]: Every app on your phone can register for changes of the clipboard and thus be notified when you copy your passwords from the password manager to your clipboard. In order to protect against this kind of attack, you should use the Keepass2Android keyboard: When you select an entry, a notification will appear in the notification bar. This notification lets you easily switch to the KP2A keyboard. This is a simple keyboard with an important key: click the Keepass2Android symbol to “type” your credentials. Click the keyboard key to switch back to your favorite keyboard.

    Unfortunately, Mono SDK or Xamarin, is not free software, so it seems that we have no way to compile the app without first installing non-free software. There is Java/XML source code for the keyboard and something else but I guess that it won’t currently work with any other app

    Is it possible to add this, now that Xamarin is open source?

    As Nutomic said, Xamarin is now apparently MIT licensed. The GNU list doesn’t have a separate entry for the MIT license, but from what I find on Wikipedia and Microsoft/Xamarin’s description it’s free enough.

    If I can create a working metadata package, would it fulfil the technicalities to be included into the repository?

    Thanks

    Second that. I would love to see this app on F-Droid.

    I would like to see this too, browser integration and ftp/webdav support sounds very useful.

    +1. This app has better user experience than KeePassDroid.

    I’m trying to go the route of not installing Google services on my Android device. I would love to see Keepass2Android app come to F-Droid so I don’t have to go and try to download this using other means.

    Bumping. I would really love to see this app on f-droid, it’s by far the best at what it’s doing <3
