NEWS: Added Keepass 2 write support

Please report any problems you might have here. I use this version to test Keepass 2 write support with a wider audience. Though I do not see major problems with it and for myself switched also finally from using Keepass 1 to Keepass 2 database.

Are you tired of remembering all your different passwords? Or are you using everywhere the same one? If you stumbled over that - ownKeepass is the answer for you to keep track and securely store all your passwords for web pages, bank accounts, login credentials and all other stuff which need to be kept secret. You can share the database file with Keepass or KeepassX on your desktop system and maintain one single encrypted database wherever you are. You will only need to remember one very strong master password to open your database. ownKeepass reads and writes Keepass 1 and 2 databases. --- ownKeepass is open source software and released under GPL version 2. Sources are hosted at github:

I am forced to use kdbx 4 format databases. Would be nice if you could implement this :) https://keepass.info/help/kb/kdbx_4.html

ade's picture

I already created an issue for that on github: https://github.com/jobe-m/ownkeepass/issues/18
Given the response I am afraid it will not be implemented on short notice.

Nice thx 4 the hint!

sorry, picking the sd-card after 1.2.4 is still not possible for me with

Hi, any chance to add unlocking with fingerprint?

Great service.

How do I change the master password (pass phrase) without a computer?

jobe's picture

Open the database. Then go in top menu to database settings. There you can change the master password of the database.

objectifnul's picture

The 'database settings' menu entry is greyed out :-(

Should I modify permissions? (currently only nemo has read/write permissions)

jobe's picture

Oh sorry, you are right. Changing master password for Keepass database 2 is not implemented yet. It has nothing to do with file access rights.

The latest update removed the copy pwd, username pulleys


intentionaly ?






thanks for the best app in warehouse !

jobe's picture

Yes :) Please use a long press on the URL, Username, Password and the other items. It will open a context menu with copy option. That way you can copy more fields than before.

Thanks for the great work. Probably one of the best designed applications in the Sailfish ecosystem.

objectifnul's picture

Wish list: quick one-tap flight mode button to hide the real password database and replace it with a fake one before police & customs formalities

jobe's picture

Thanks, this is a nice Idea. I see the current usecase with some governments going nuts :)

I put it on github.

Is there a chance to export data as QR Code?

jobe's picture

Not currently. I have also no plans to implement a QR code generator...

yuri's picture

Beautiful App! :) On my jolla1 I've added:

onClicked: Qt.openUrlExternally(text)

in line 167 of ShowEntryDetailsPage.qml, so urls are now clickable. :)

jobe's picture

Thanks, that is a very good idea. I will add it to the next release.

mkiol's picture

Thank you for your work. OwnKeepass is an essential app on my phone.

jobe's picture

I am glad that you like it. You are welcome :)

Ancelad's picture

Something wrong with Russian localization - when I choose it I see some Nordic one (afaik)

jobe's picture

Thanks, you are right! There was a mixup in the enum of the languages. I will fix it asap.

objectifnul's picture

The default timeout for password copy-to-clipboard is way too short (5 seconds).

Uninformed users may believe clipboard is just not working.

jobe's picture

The defaut value is 30 seconds, but that applies only to users who install the app the first time.

I see the problem. In previous versions of ownKeepass the users have mostly disabled the timeout for clearing the clipboard because 10 seconds were too short. Now in version 1.1.14 the saved value for "disabled clipboard clearing" is mapped to the first timing interval of 5 seconds. :(

That might be confusing... Thanks anyway for reporting.

jobe on other question: for .kdbx databases do you only do read support? some mac ox apps dontt support .kdb anymore.

jobe's picture

Kdbx write support will come in the future. It is on my todo list :)

Kabouik's picture

Hi, any update on this? I'm using KeepassXC on my Linux laptop and would like to sync with the Jolla using Syncthing, .kdbx would be pefect.

Thanks for the awesome app.


[Edit] Oh nevermind, I just noticed it's already implemented, perfect. Sorry for the noise.
