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, awesome and secure.

Update: the “Free trial” timer

It seems, the app shows a “Free trial” timer after installation. This is a bug, a leftover from the old monetization approach. This countdown will not disable any features.

Sorry for the confusion. Please ignore the countdown, it will be removed in the next update.

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 :)
