  1. Can you please add support for automatically caching keepass files from WebDAV servers ?

    The reason why I’m asking this is because I plan to set up a webdav server on my computer that serves my pw database, and each time my phone can reach the server (basically each time I get home) I’d like it to cache the latest version of the database (and upload changes if there were any), however I also need to be able to access the latest cached version if the server isn’t reachable.


  2. Hi,
    J just installed the new Yosemite system. Now everything works but J can’t see my entries. Is it possible to change the colors of background and fonts.

    Thanks in advance

    Greetings G. Busch

  3. I hope this is a simple feature request for KyPass 3.x.

    When viewing a password entry, in the section called “ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONS”

    Are you able to display the entry expiration date if it has one? The expiration field is very useful if someone stores credit card information inside of the Keepass.database.


  4. Thanks for Kypass, I recently replaced Lastpass with Kypass/Keepass and Dropbox on all devices and it really works well.

    Here is my wishlist/buglist:
    Using Kypass on iPad in Landscape mode I have it set to open the search dialog automatically. This kinda works, but the search box jumps around the screen and the animation is jarring until it ends up in the correct location. (Have you seen how Lastpass implemented this, which I quite liked there.)

    Kypass on Ipad often shows Javascript erros in the built in browser, which diminish usability. For example ironsocket.com

    It would be nice, if Kypass would preselect the last used Keyfile on iPad and on OS X.

    Will this version fix the bug in Yosemite where all the folder names in Kypass 1.5 are black text on dark gray background making them unreadable?

    1. good choice 🙂
      – For the keyfile, it’s not a good idea as it decrease security.
      – Javascript: I’ll look for better code.
      – Search box was improved in the next release.
      – And the grey background was fixed in the next release of Kypass companion sent to apple a few days ago.

      1. Please explain how this option would decrease security? IMHO preselecting the last used keyfile should be available as an option for those of us who want to use it that way. ‘Security by obscurity’ is not really necessary here, as the keyfile works like a second factor of authentication: “something that I have”, which is not stored on Dropbox. – On the ipad its on local storage anyways and on the Mac I use it the same way. This is secure enough for me.

        Glad the obvious bugs are fixed already. When will the update arrive in the App store?

      2. I also think that a it would be nice, if Kypass would preselect the last used Keyfile on iOS X.
        Event the original version of keepass does it…
        I am a former windows user and really miss this.

  5. Hi,
    I just bought KyPass – seems to work good but there is a layout bug in Yosemite (quite sure you know it already): Black font on dark grey background in folder list. Is this bug known and will it be fixed in the upcoming release?


      1. Hi,
        did i miss the update on the mac store. Up to now i have the problem with the dark font ?

        thanks a lot

      2. Hey

        unfortunately the update is not available at the apple store, yet.
        Are there any problems?
        Can you give us an update?

        Thanks and kind regards

  6. Hi,

    Any workaround to fix colors in Mac OS Yosemite? Black foreground on dark gray back are horrible…

    Any new about 1.6 release?



  7. hi,
    some feature requests/ideas 🙂
    1. link an image viewer/include an image viewer.
    when you have an jpg attached to an password entry you need to save the image before you can open it. i possibility to open it with an image viewer would be extra nice :). Use case would be an attached photo of an tan list for example.
    2. Autotype
    i think i haven’t to explain that.
    greets from bavaria

  8. PLEASE add the ability to change the background color of the left column. PLEASE. It is absolutely unreadable at this point. We paid a premium for your app, and I think everyone is ok with that, but right now, it’s hardly usable. Thanks!

  9. Hi,
    I just bought kypass and like it.
    I am using a v2 database and when deleting entries and groups they go into the recycle bin.
    But I cannot delete them permanently.
    Can you add an “empty recycle bin” feature, thanks.

  10. May be I am not aware of, do you plan to support OtpKeyProv plugin? I like Kypass and I would like to use my Yubico key too 🙂


  11. When starting Kypass, you will see a list of files. I am using WebDAV, and when I touch the blue circled “i” next to a database file, I can see some file info. Under remote I can se the full WebDAV url, including user-id and password. I think this info should be protected, either by only showing *** for the password, or by some other means. Perhaps something to include in the next version?

  12. Dear Miguel,

    Ever since KyPass 3, the top and bottom text and background colors are unbearably bad. The Up, back, and search button are simply not visible on an iPad2. On my IPhone 5, its just barley visible. Please change this as soon as possible.


  13. Kypass companion Keychain integration + keyfile

    I use Kypass quite extensivel. My mac is completely encrypted, but for security reasons (other keepass platforms) I use a keyfile.
    I’d like to use kypass companion using the credentials stored in my apple keychain, but that doesn’t work automatically.

    I wonder what the purpose of the checkbox is on the login screen?


  14. I am still using 2.4.2 so this may already be fixed in 3 but could we have a configuration item for the directory where the database is in Google Drive. At the moment I have to put it in the root or Google Drive which is a pain. Having it would like Dropbox would be perfect.

    Having a default of /Crypted like Dropbox would also be good.

    Regards Glen

  15. Hi,
    I have the kypass companion and the kypass 3 app.
    You say that icloud drive integration is existing, but what do I need to do to make kypass 3 see my database in the icloud drive?
    does it have to be a special folder?


  16. Hi

    I am planning to buy kypass 3 on my iphone and am really impressed by your feature rich app.

    Do you plan to incorporate touch id in the future?
    Would love to have it.
    Thanks in advance!!

  17. Hi there,
    is 3.4 out yet?
    I have an issue on iOS 8, namely: unable to create entries:(
    will you fix this? (or am I doing something wrong?)

  18. Hi!
    Could you please tell me how can I add a few custom icons into my keepass DB?
    Is it possible at the moment?
    I have often used this option in original keepass on Windows and it will be great if this option will be available on Mac.
    Thank you!


  19. Pleas fix this version soon,

    if search looses focus the program hangs and presents a spinner (color wheel of death)

  20. Hi,

    I have a .kdbx file with an entry that includes attached files.
    With the current version (1.6) I’m not able to extract (save) these files.
    When I click (or double click) on these files in the “Advanced” or “Properties” tabs, the Save window appears, but nothing happens after clicking the “Save” button.
    Is there any other way to access the contents of these files?


  21. I use kypass with dropbox from iphone, ipad mini (and some pc); i’m very happy and i substituted my splashid after 5 years.

    Please, can you unify pin’s interface in ipad e iphone? On iphone the interface similar numeric keyboard is perfet, but on ipad the classic alphanumeric keyboard is annoying?

    Thank you

  22. I have kypass on macosx and would by the app for iphone if it just would support sync via webdav to my own server, i don’t like my sensitive data on Google or dropbox, and I need _sync_ because of multiple machines having Access at the same time.

  24. Next features id like to see are:
    -Support for touch id to be used instead of pin
    -Support for Share h in safari to paste password automatically without leaving safari

    keep up the good work,

  25. Using KyPass KyPass 3 V3.3 on iPad with iOS 7.1.2.
    When adding entries with “+” on the iPad I can only find a “abbrechen” (cancel) – Button in the Header, but no “fertig” (ready) – Button. Different to the iPhone where I can at least guess this Button on the top right.

  26. I would like to do a printout of my KyPass Companion V 1.7 data base. How can I do it and print the passwords?

    Thanks for any help

  27. Please make an iOS 8 Extension, where you can select the password and it automaticly fills in your password so that you do not have to open the keypass-App copy the password and go back to safari.
    Kinda like 1Password.
    And Fingerprint-Support would be great!

  28. Kypass 3 updated on iPhone 4 running iOS 7.1.2 (latest version supported by this iPhone) on 8 March. I cannot now open Kypass. Fortunately my passwords are not lost as I can access using KeePass on my PC.

  29. Hi

    I purchased kyPass Companion version 1.7 (3187) on the app store. I am trying to open an existing kypass database .kdbx, but I tried and it always says the password is invalid. I retried several times and the password should be correct, but I don’t know if the problem lies somewhere else.


    1. I also have the issue where Bypass appears to forget the password I enter. I am not using a keyfile since I cannot find any information on how to use one.
      The password is 8 14 characters long and stored in a text file so I copy paste it in.
      The other problem I have is that I am trying import a CSV file I created in Excel with a list of 70 servers and usernames and passwords.
      I named the columns the same as what appears in Bypass. However, when I click import, select the file and click ok nothing happens.
      Again there is no information regarding this process.
      BY all means correct me if I’m wrong.

      1. 1st line: header with the field you want to import separated by semicolon (title, username, password, url or any other field for kdbx import). 1st field must always be title.
        other lines: the entries separated by semicolon.

  30. Hi, i couldn’t open my database anymore because i cannot see my keyfile. I have changed the keyfile to match the name with the database and with the extension .key but it still doesn’t work
    Can you help me?

  31. Just purchased and installed Kypass companion 1.7 from app store, try to open keepass dbx file and it says ‘password invalid’

    I know the password works, as it is working on both windows7 laptop + windows7 desktop keepass standalone program.

    How do we fix this?

    1. Weird.
      Do you use special encryption ? Only standard encryption is supported.
      Do you use keyfile ? If yes, don’t forget to use it also with KyPass Companion 🙂

  32. I really like KyPass Companion – but would love it if I had the ability to upload a custom icon for my entries. Not everything has a URL with an associated favicon. I would really love to be able to add my own custom icon to the entries – like I used to be able to do i Keepass on my PC.

  33. Is there also solution that Kypass 3 can be used by windows PC? i can not fins any.
    the reason i want to re-order the groups on a easy way.

    thx in advance for the answer

  34. It would be nice to set a default database file. So, when you open KyPass it would auto load that database. Makes it easier for people that only use one database.


  35. I use KyPass Companion (OS X – El Capitan) but I was not able to synchonise my kdbx file from Dropbox with KyPass Companion. Can you please give me an Explanation what I have to do? Thank you very much!

    Best regards,


    1. Do you have Dropbox installed on your mac ? If yes, just put your database in the synchronized folder used by KyPass on your iPhone.
