I need some advice to choose a Keepass client on Android phone which can synchronize using Dropbox.

As i keep all my passwords in one place, I would like to keep it safe. Is KeepassDroid client safe to use on mobile phones? Any bad experiences by using such a client?

  • Is KeePassDroid safe to use? I know that earlier versions stored decrypted passwords on the device. The author's justification for doing this seemed unconvincing.

  • Looks like groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/… is the topic of discussion regarding Keepass encryption on Droid.

I've been very happy with KeePassDroid and it does happily sync via dropbox on your android phone. Check out their blog http://blog.keepassdroid.com/2010/06/dropbox-and-keepassdroid.html

keepassdroid is very popular and open source so you are welcome to take a look through the source code. https://github.com/bpellin/keepassdroid

The main thing to keep in mind with keepass is make sure you have that keepass file protected with a strong password!


I've been using Keepass2Android for a number of years without any problems. I use it to synchronise to Dropbox where my .kdbx file is stored. But it can also use Google Drive, SkyDrive, FTP and WebDAV.

Note that it caches a local copy of the .kdbx file so can work offline.

Keepass2Android is also open source:
