ChromeIPass (addon for Keepass on Chrome) wants to unlock the database every time it detects credential fields, even if I don't even have an account on that site. This is the default setting (october 2015).
Is it possible to only unlock the database on my request (by clicking on the ChromeIPass button)? Is it possible to keep the KeePass database encrypted and only unlock it when required?
This question is security related as any workaround not carefully thought through can increase the security risk.
Basic (bad) workarounds could be:
- keep your DB open at all times when using Chrome
- try a custom reconfiguration of ChromeIPass (with the risk to reduce the security level)*.
- stop using ChromeIPass and return to your old way to manage your access (copy/paste credentials??) because this issue is very frustrating.
