KeePassB v1 (Legacy) password manager for BlackBerry® 10 and PlayBook
KeePassB is a version of KeePass for BlackBerry 10 smartphones and PlayBook tablet. KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using AES, one of the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known.
KeePassB v1 has been discontinued and will only remain available to existing users. The native KeePassB is an enterprise-friendly native Built for BlackBerry 10 application.
- Read and write KeePass v2 (.kdbx) files
- Read and write KeePass v1 (.kdb) files
- Integration with Dropbox (on BlackBerry 10)
- BlackBerry-style interface
- Easy copy/paste to other applications
- Intuitive search function
- Password generator for new entries
- Database lock after timeout
- Does not work in enterprise (BES) environments
- Does not support attached files in v2 (.kdbx) databases
- Could have nicer interface
- Could be faster
The native KeePassB is free from these limitations.
Works with Dropbox
KeePassB uses the native Dropbox integration in BlackBerry 10. Make sure to enter your account details into "Connect to Dropbox" system app. Then simply open KeePassB and choose Dropbox in file selection screen. The system will take care of synchronization.
BlackBerry PlayBook does not have Dropbox integration, so PlayBook owners will need to use a third-party app to copy their databases to the tablet's memory first.
This version has been discontinued and is only available for existing users. To install your previously purchased KeePassB v1 copy, open BlackBerry World — My World — My Apps & Games — Available, choose "KeePassB (Legacy)" from the list, then tap "Download".
For best experience, please consider the native KeePassB.
Frequently asked questions
- I installed KeePassB, but it does not start
- This is often caused by the conflict with another KeePass port, KPD. Please uninstall KPD and OI FileIntents apps, and everything should work.
- I am trying to open a database, but KeePassB says "File not found"
There is a bug in OS 10.2.1 implementation of Android player, which breaks the file selection dialog. Basically, once you select a file, the system tells KeePassB that you pressed "Cancel" button instead. BlackBerry claims this will be fixed in the next OS version.
There are a few workarounds.
- Easy: Open KeePassB menu, navigate to application settings and enable the "Internal file picker" option.
- Medium: Open the standard File Manager app and tap your .kdb/.kdbx file from there — this will open the selected file with KeePassB. However, the key file path (if any) will need to be typed manually (see below).
- Hard: Edit the file path manually. The default path is "
/accounts/1000/shared/documents/keepass.kdb". For files in Dropbox this should start with "
/accounts/1000/shared/Dropbox/" and for SD card "
/accounts/1000/removable/sdcard/". The same applies to the key file, if you have one.
KeePassB is based on KeePassDroid by Brian Pellin (available under the GPL v2 license); its interface has been significantly modified for BlackBerry 10 and PlayBook. KeePassB v1 source code is also available under the GPL v2 license.
