Here is already the v0.2 of KyPass Companion with a big improvement:
– KyPass Companion is now fully compatible with KeePassHTTP. It mean that you can use the Chrome & Firefox add-on on your Mac !
– Opened database are also restored at the opening of KyPass Companion.
All you have to do is download “KyPass Companion”, run it, open a KeePass database and install a browser extension:
– Chrome: Download if from Chrome Web Store (thanks to Perry Nguyen)
– Firefox: Download if from https://passifox.appspot.com/passifox.xpi (thanks to Perry Nguyen)
– Safari: Go in the preferences panel of KyPass Companion and click on the “Install Safari extension” button.

This works really well. However, it would be helpful if it locked the database when you close it (whether you choose the option to close the database or close the whole app altogether). Right now, if I quit Kypass, then reopen it, I don’t have to enter my password to open my keepass database. This is rather insecure.
Ah, I just realized you said the password is stored in the keychain. Perhaps you could have an option where it is not stored in the keychain?
I tried Kypass companion but I don’t know how to have it works. I have a keepass database and open it correctly. I promise I did right setting up for safari (actually, there is no many things for setting up), but the Kypass bar alwasy says it cannot find a match password for certainly page. why can’t let me choose my password?
kypass companion do the match on the url field. Verify that the url field of your entries is ok.
i just downloaded the version 0.2 but i does as i try to open a database it does not find my .kdbx database. Do i have to rename it or something else?
for use with my WindowsPhone, i renamed my database file extension to *.kdbx.doc. i had to do this because Windows Phone Skydrive synchronize no *.kdbx files. My problem now is, that i can not choose the database from KyPass. It would be nice, if KyPass would me allow to choose the database file i want.
Works fine, thank you! Maybe you could add the option to open a database like you can do it on Windows? I mean that you can edit and view an entry in an additional window, so I can edit, e.g. the password, afterwards.
I’ve downloaded the companion, placed it in my applications folder and started it. Safari asked me to install the extension, which I did even though I don’t use Safari. Perhaps I got some screen in Safari, not sure, I closed it too fast. I’ve installed the chrome extension and this can connect.
However, I can’t seem to open any Kypass Companion GUI – is there one? How should I select a DB to open? If I start companion from applications nothing happens. If I quit it via activity monitor and start it again, the process runs, but no gui appears.
Any help to get this running would be much appreciated, chrome integration would be great!
Running os x 10.8.2, chrome+chromeIPass latest
Look the little ‘k’ in your menu bar 🙂
I have try it, but it can’t open my keepass. always do a coredump …

‘weak’ reference are not used anymore in v0.5
I hope that it will fix this error.
Installed Kypass companion on my Mac running Mountain Lion. I can open my kdbx database, and see all the folders, but no passwords are displayed.
Otherwise this looks great. Like Kypass on my iPad, and hate the Mac options for keepass so far. This is looking good so far – please don’t stop!
Could you run KyPass Companion and send me the result of the command in terminal ?
grep KyPass /var/log/system.log
It doesn’t appear to let me delete entries from search results. I have a pretty big kdbx, and for instance if I search FTP and it shows me the 5 results, I’m not able to delete one of them (right click + delete doesn’t do anything). I need to go find it manually and then delete it.
Whoa, it also appears to delete the wrong entry? I just deleted an entry in my FTP folder, and it deleted another separate entry in that folder in addition to the one I intended to delete.
bug is fixed in next version (next week)
The download link doesn’t work anymore, please update it.
We Windows 7 users have KeePass plugins for Chrome and Firefox and works well. I would like to do the same with Safari too. I notice that this plugin says “for Mac”. But since it is a plugin for Safari i was wondering if it would install fine on Windows boxes too. I know i can go to Apple’s plugin site and install any plugin i want to Windows so i would assume it would be fine too??
If so then how would i install this manually. And if not then why not open up the user base a lil by supporting us Safari Windows users?
Safari on Windows is not supported anymore by Apple.
And the Safari plugin on Mac doesn’t use Keepasshttp plugin but its own implementation. (Only the chrome and firefox plugin on mac use keepasshttp)
Would you show me where I can download chromeIPass browser extension for Safari?
Actually I tried to get it with your instruction below, but I could not see any download link on that page.
Safari: Go in the preferences panel of KyPass Companion and click on the “Install Safari extension” button.
