Please provide feedback on the discussion forums.
Start by uploading .psafe3 files to your Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, or ownCloud account using the service’s native app or website. PasswdSafe Sync should then sync the files to your phone or tablet.
Dropbox – Individual Dropbox files can be chosen to synchronize.
Box – Box files should be placed in the top folder or any folder tagged with ‘passwdsafe’ so it shows in a search result.
Google Drive – Google Drive files can be located anywhere.
OneDrive - Individual OneDrive files can be chosen to synchronize
ownCloud - Individual ownCloud files can be chosen to synchronize.
The PasswdSafe keyboard can be used to enter fields directly into other apps without using the system clipboard. The process of enabling the keyboard on Android 8 is given below. Other versions are similar.
To switch between the default Google keyboard and the PasswdSafe keyboard, look for a keyboard icon in the bottom button bar, the top notification area, or on the current keyboard. Clicking the icon should allow you to choose the PasswdSafe keyboard.
Prior to using a YubiKey with PasswdSafe, the key needs to be programmed for Password Safe, and a password needs to be set with the YubiKey by the PC program. Help is available in the PC program for the setup.
To use a YubiKey NEO with PasswdSafe, follow these steps:
File passwords can be saved on devices with a fingerprint scanner and Android 6.0 or higher. The passwords are encrypted using AES-256 keys that are protected by a fingerprint scan.
ASTRO File Manager – The ASTRO file manager requires settings to be added to set a MIME type for the .psafe3 and .dat file extensions. In the application’s preferences, edit file extensions. Add extensions for psafe3 and dat to the MIME type application and sub-type x-psafe. Afterwards, file should open automatically when selected.
Dropbox – Files synced from Dropbox should open automatically when clicked. Newer versions of Dropbox will automatically sync files if they are modified and then saved in PasswdSafe.
Google Drive – Google Drive will automatically open files with PasswdSafe. Currently, Google Drive, does not support synchronization of modified files. The files are opened read-only in PasswdSafe.
OI File Manager – PasswdSafe files should open automatically.
