I started with KeePass
, the 1.xx series, which I still use. I added AI RoboForm
for more automation, which it does well.
When I bought an Android tablet, I installed KeePassDroid
because it uses KeePass 1.xx series files, copied via Dropbox. It works via the Android clipboard, which is a security risk if you run a clipboard manager, as I do. In search of greater convenience I added Sticky Password
(SP) when Bits du Jour had one of their deals on a lifetime license. I chose SP largely because (a) Win-SP and Android-SP will sync over local WiFi without needing anything cloud and (b) it meant I wouldn't have to buy an upgrade to RoboForm if I didn't want to. On limited acquaintance, my feeling is that Win-SP isn't as slick as RoboForm at figuring out login details, but it gives you quite good diagnostics and editing features to fix logins that don't quite work.
The Android experience is mixed, probably because of restrictions within the Android OS as well as sluggishness on the part of developers. Android-SP only supports a few browsers; Firefox
, which seems the most universally supported, Dolphin
, and UC Browser, but not UC Browser HD
which I sometimes use, nor Opera
either. Success is variable. Some logins work with some browsers but not others (though I don't use the very latest Android-SP). To support everything for which Android-SP doesn't have a browser add-on, it offers a "floating window" making loginID and password readily available, but which in itself is little if anything of a step up from KeePassDroid, especially as it goes through the clipboard again. A problem that sometimes arises is when the floating window sends the required data to the clipboard, but clears the clipboard immediately, so you can't use the data, unless you recall it with a clipboard manager.
I realise the thread is about password
managers, but I was surprised and disappointed to find that Android-SP won't fill in details from an identity. That is, it's OK for forum logins and the like, but not much use for online purchasing. Given that online shopping is supposed to be going to destroy the retail sector, that seems a big omission.
