Im sure there are options that have apps in both android and iphone.

my Keepass and Dropbox password is all i have to remember, or even only the Keepass password if i make the file public on dropbox


Does this mean you have to download the file from Dropbox everytime you want to login? Could I use Keepass plus a USB? Also is there two factor authentication with Keepass? I've had complex passwords broken so many times I don't sneeze without two factor authentication these days.


I have it in Dropbox in case I lose my laptop or something, and because I need to log in from Windows some times so it's handy to know I have it available. Also, if I'm somewhere not close to my laptop and need to access something there, I can retrieve the master file easily.

It's simply a way of having the info available at any time, and always updated. Every time I make a change it's saves automatically in Dropbox as well.

But yeah, you can use an USB flash drive.

And I do hate those things filing your forms for you, and asking you if you want to save what you just typed. I rather do it manually in Keepass, although there's a extension for Keepass that you can download that does exactly that intrusive thing if you want.

It's impossible to remember my usernames and passwords anymore, with so many sites and things... I depend on my Keepass.

just gave that a try, can't stand the pop-up - feels ultra-chintzy ... every single website I go to - even the CC forums - it keeps asking me if it wants me to remember the password ... the whole user experience makes me feel as secure as a nietzsche in the donkey costume


Well, I kind of expected you'd value your comfort over your security, so no big deal.


How come he's banned from posting in this thread and still can and I can't?

  • 2 letters= 4th and 6th letter of email-address
  • 1 number= 1st number in emailaddress

so if email were to be saxitonin58@blabla.com
password: in03pghio5

==> can sound annoying at first, but once you're used to it, it's real easy and it's not exactly making sense to anybody who doesn't understand the pattern
and you could ofcourse make it even more complicated if you say 3rd letter expressed NATO-letters(a ==>alpha), or 4th number is number of letters in email x number of numbers in email, etc.


That's actually a very good system.

Nietzsche may have the best suggestion. I'm going to try this when I get home and if it works nietzsche will win 5 minutes with xeno.
