KeePassium 1.08 — KeePass for iPhone, made easy

KeePassium 1.08 is here to make your iPhone KeePass workflow even smoother.

From now on, the Unlock button will stay out of your way, saving you a couple of seconds every day. When you open the app, it will ask you for a Touch ID/Face ID scan and take you directly to your passwords.

Switching between databases is also very easy:

Auto-unlock is available both in free and premium versions. To disable it, simply turn off the “Remember Master Keys” option in the settings.

KeePassium Pro — for family and business

KeePassium Pro icon

KeePassium Pro is the premium version of KeePassium that is compatible with Family Sharing and Volume Purchase Program (VPP).

Family Sharing

When you have a family to protect, you'd want the premium experience for everyone. However, in-app purchases are not eligible for Family Sharing, so everyone needed a separate license. The resulting costs could quickly escalate from hefty to ridiculous.

KeePassium Pro solves this problem. It is a paid app that already includes all the premium features. A single purchase protects up to five users in your Family Sharing group.

Five for the price of one — how cool is that? :)

Better prices

Today's release was a good moment to revise the price of the Premium Keeper — the permanent license available as in-app purchase. With the old license effectively replaced by KeePassium Pro, the new Premium Keeper now costs about 30$. This is a great option if you want a personal premium license.

The early adopters who purchased Premium Keeper at the original price can get a free upgrade to KeePassium Pro. Please follow instructions in the app.


Volume Purchase Program (VPP)

If your organization is enrolled in the Volume Purchase Program for Business — you can buy KeePassium Pro in volume and distribute the best KeePass app for iOS directly to your users.

No more personal purchases, reimbursement forms, or promo codes that were needed to activate the freemium edition. No recurring payments, either — it's a one-time purchase.

KeePassium 1.02.36

After a month of undercover work, KeePassium is back with a new update. There are three notable highlights that will make your life better.

iOS 13: Dark Mode

KeePassium is now fully compatible with the iOS 13 Dark Mode.

User name generator/picker

KeePassium makes it very easy to have different passwords for each account. But what about user names?

Whether you always stick with the formal firstname.lastname or prefer randomness — we've got you covered!

When creating a new entry, tap Choose at the user name field. You will get a selection of the most frequently used names (from your database), plus a completely random one.

First steps in KeePassium

For those who are new to KeePass and KeePassium, here's a one-minute video on how to:

  • create a database
  • unlock the database
  • add a new entry with a strong random password
  • save changes
Video: First steps in KeePassium.

Introducing KeePassium for iOS

KeePassium icon

KeePassium is a password manager that combines the security of KeePass with the beauty of iOS design.

KeePassium was created because existing KeePass apps on iOS — such as MiniKeePass, KeePass Touch, Strongbox, KyPass, iKeePass — either ceased development (MiniKeePass, iKeePass) or lack the usability they could have.

KeePassium fills this gap. After 7 month of initial development, followed by 10 month of thorough beta testing and refinements, KeePassium is finally available on the App Store.

Privacy First

KeePassium is a premium app for those who value their privacy.

  • You can host your encrypted database wherever you want, whether it’s locally on device, in a cloud or your own server.

  • KeePassium never asks for your server credentials. All the networking is done by the original storage provider app. A password manager should never have full read/write access to your whole server.

  • There are no ads, no trackers, no analytics. If something does not work — tell us, otherwise we won't know.

  • You don't have to trust us — KeePassium is open source. Audit the source code, build your own binary and rely on it.

Features

  • Automatic sync — keep your database in your favorite cloud or offline (supports Dropbox, iCloud, Box, OneDrive, Google Drive, pCloud and more.)
  • Password AutoFill — login to any service in a few taps.
  • Unlock with Touch ID / Face ID.
  • Multiple databases — to share passwords with your team or family.
  • All database formats (kdb, kdbx3, kdbx4).
  • TOTP, custom icons, attachments, entry history, automatic backups…

And also:

  • No in-app browser.
  • No SSH/VNC client.
  • No crazy fonts or colors.
  • No coffee maker.
  • No ads.

Premium vs. Free

You can try KeePassium for free, indefinitely, and upgrade when it’s worth your time.

The free version provides everything a casual user would ever need: view, edit, sync, search, TouchID / FaceID unlock. There are some inconveniences, though: only one database can be used at a time, and that database will automatically lock up within 1 hour. Most people will be perfectly happy with the free version.

The premium version is designed for experts and business users who value their time and convenience. You can add multiple databases, quickly switch them with one-tap unlock, and preview attachments directly in the app. Premium subscriptions keep KeePassium open, ad-free and secure.

P.S. Almost by coincidence, today is the 5-year anniversary of KeePassB for BlackBerry 10. It was released on 31 July 2014 and became the best KeePass app for BB10 phones. Let’s see how this works out on iOS :)
