#1653 Passwordless Database


Allow for a "No Password"/Passwordless/Unencrypted Database.

Whenever you log in/open a database it will ask for the password (ie. Master password). The point of a no password is simple, not every database need to be encrypted. I have a database purely for storing login & password where is it 'mandatory' to have an account (Sourceforge is one example where registration is require to create Trackers).

    KeePass encrypts the database before it is saved to disk, thus you need a password.
    If you want to remove the requirement for a password you would need to change the source code and compile.

    You can provide the master password and/or key file location using command line options, see http://keepass.info/help/base/cmdline.html . When you put an appropriate command line into a batch script (or properties of a file shortcut), you can open your database by just one double-click onto the script/shortcut. Of course, security then is zero.

    Best regards
