    Hi!
    I want to find a simple way to check if this option is active and working in my keepass or not.Please advice :)
    P.s. I did not find a simple button to enable this TCATO globally, so I did install a plagin RDCAutoTypeAndTCATO.

    You could set the Auto-Type to have a 1 second inter key delay - {DELAY=1000}. Or try a key stroke recorder.

    cheers, Paul

    Open a test entry.
    Select the Auto-Type tab.
    Select "Override default sequence".
    Add {DELAY=1000} to the beginning of the sequence and save.
    Open Notepad.
    Bring KeePass up and select the test entry.
    Press Ctrl V.

    cheers, Paul

    Thanks :)But it's check just if TCATO working in single site. So, it is working and I like it :)
    But I would like to know if it's working globally by default in my system. Because of this I did install this RDCAutoTypeAndTCATO. I don't know how to check if this plagin does working at all :)
    Perhaps you can ask for creator to add a global button for all with exception capability. Thanks again.

    In KeePass TCATO must be turned on for each entry.
    The RDCAutoTypeAndTCATO plug-in allows you to turn on TCATO for each application, e.g. Internet Explorer.

    It doesn't comfortable to turn on for each entry :)Does using RDCAutoTypeAndTCATO only is enough?
    I must enter the name of the application manually, for ex. firefox in the left corner of the RDCAutoTypeAndTCATO plug-in and save it, right?Or it is active by default for all applications on my system?

    You must set it per application.

    cheers, Paul

    Thanks a lot :)It is finally working on my system :)
    One more thing. About this TCATO and keefox plugin. I did install this plugin,cause it more comfortable to me.At least I can't find a way to use keepass alone with same functionality that keefox have.
    My questions:(sorry for that, I am trying to set it like I desire)
    Does this obfuscation really works while I do click on Key symbol of the keefox(or using auto submit function), or this plugin just transmit the login and password directly without any obfuscation? I did found some option of using some different port in keefox. Perhaps it is more secure? What port should I choose and where to set it inside the keepass(in order that communication between them shall continue)?
    Very many thanks.

    KeeFox is more secure because it places the password directly into the browser without typing, but malware that collects form data will still steal your passwords.

    cheers, Paul
