NEWS: Added latest KDBX 4 database 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.

Good to know: it is possible to import your lastpass data to keepass. See here. Not seemless though.

Language selection bug: English language cannot be set if device language isn't English (French in my case).

Thanks for the feedback. I will fix this bug for the next Jolla store release.

Thank you for your efforts - however, a major impediment to using this app in a secure environment is the fact that the database has to be located under "~/Documents". It would be nice if one could use the database that stores the LUKS password to decrypt "~/Documents".

jobe's picture

 Good point. I will take this into account when implementing a file dialog.

BTW you can put your database in your home dir "~/" with typing "../yourdatabase.kdb" in the database name and path field.

msava's picture

That only returns a database file error saying that no database can be found under "/home/nemo/Documents/../mydatabase.kdb" which is the normal behaviour when you hardcode "~/Documents" as the parent directory for the database file. You need to change that to the home directory to allow people to put their databases whereever they may choose.

jobe's picture

No your assumption is wrong. I am using QStandardPaths::DocumentsLocation as Dokument location. That is currently placed in the home folder of the user. Because it might change also in later SFOS Versions the path is not hardcoded. Anyway it is forbitten in Harbour to use hard coded paths IIRC. I have tried the trick with ../path/to/database.kdb and it worked some months ago, because there was a question from a user in Jolla harbour.

But I need to apologize also to not have a proper file browser dialog implemented. It is still with some priority on my todo list but I have cronically too less time to spend developing for SFOS :/

msava's picture

OK, if you use QStandardPaths::HomeLocation instead of QStandardPaths::DocumentsLocation you make available for quering the whole user home directory, not just Ducuments.

I, for one, have no use for a file browser dialog.

jobe's picture

Yes, that is a good idea. I will add HomeLocation to the list of locations.

Perfect, thanks

I just translated some Dutch. Prefer English myself, so I will not use it :D

Thanks for the work, love this app!

jobe's picture

Great thanks, will look into it tomorrow :)

Yes great app and before I upgraded to SailfishOS ( Uitukka) I had it inatalled from Jolla Store. But now I just don't seem to find it there (it's not in any of the categories and search does not find it). Has the name changed, or is just that it won't show cause I'm on Uitukka? I'm currently using ownKeepass app from OpenRepos but was just wondering what has happened to Jolla Store version?

jobe's picture

That is actually the reason I put ownKeepass on openrepos.

Since I updated to Uitukka my app disappeared from the jolla store. It is still visible for me in the harbour backend. I contacted jolla already and they reported a problem with the backend of the store. I don't know when it will get back in. It was promissed already but it's OK for now. They are busy with the Qt5.2 update. Let's give them some time to sort things out.

jjaone's picture

Right, thanks for the reply. No probs using this from OpenRepos ;) One suggestion for the app; if one has lot's of passwords it would be great to able to organize them by copy-pasting them to new groups. Currently, exisring pw entries cannor be moved to different group, it must be first deleted from where it is and created anew to a different group. Would be great if you could consider this feature for the new version ;) Thanks for the app.anyways, really useful too.. -

Thanks for also putting this on OpenRepos!

wow this is great :)
