Free KeePass Password Manager Gets Promising Native Port to BlackBerry 10

KeePass KeePass2

KeePass is a very popular open source password manager that I have been using on my PC for awhile. Dan Samargiu has created a native port of the KeePass app bringing it to BlackBerry 10 though it is in a pretty basic form right now. It allows you to open KeePass v1.x password database files (though not the newer v2.x databases). It right now gives you only read only access but you can sync the file to your desktop using DropBox. This is a promising new port with the following features currently:

This Native port includes:

  • Read only access to KeePass 1.x Databases
  • Dropbox Integration for syncing across devices
  • Easy Search functionality to find your passwords.
  • Copy to Clipboard for username and password.
  • Browser Integration. Easy one-click access to stored URL’s (Launches in BlackBerry Browser through Invocation Framework)
  • Database automatically locks when minimized for more than 30 seconds. (Configurable in settings)

Dan also set an ambition roadmap including:

  • Write access to KeePass 1.x Databases
  • Password’s sorted in groups. (Currently, all passwords are shown in one list)
  • Edit/Create New forms.
  • Password Generation for Edit/Create New forms.
  • Read & Write access for KeePass 2.x Databases

  1. If you want to use it with KeePass 2, here is a workaround to use it with KeePass for BlackBerry:

    In KeePass you can create a trigger to automatically export to a v1 file whenever you save the database (Trigger Examples – KeePass).

    I have my v2 file on DropBox and whenever I make any changes, KeePass will now create/update an identical v1 file at the same spot that I can open and view with KeePass for BlackBerry.

  2. I have been looking for a BB version of KeePass for months (since the old guy quit supporting BB OS) and I was hoping this was it. You say this is for Z10, however, it is only for 10.1. Since there isn’t an official release on the Z ‘yet’ you could have mentioned that at least instead of getting my hopes up. I know I can try the leaks, but I’m not that adventurous yet.

  3. There’s an android port that works just fine and supports V2 and it has been around for a while. Looking forward to using this though once it supports V2.
