Featured App: Manage Your Passwords from Google Drive or Dropbox using KeePassX
KeePassX on rollApp is a browser-based password manager for people with high requirements for secure personal data management. SHA-256, a 256-bit cryptographically secure one-way hash function, is used as password hash in KeePassX. Browser requirements are as follows: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari.
Why You Need It
KeePassX is a powerful password generation app for fast and easy creation of secure, strong and unique passwords. If you often create passwords and need to store them in a cloud environment, across your devices, give KeePassX a try – you’ll only have to create and remember one master password.
The app is the perfect fit for the growing community of Chromebook users as rollApp allows them to securely store passwords in Google Drive (Dropbox and Box are also supported).
How It Works
KeePassX saves your passwords in a database stored in your cloud storage account (you have to connect cloud storage to your rollApp account to create, edit, and save files).
Once launched, KeePassX asks you to create a new database. By default, there are two groups in a new database: Internet and eMail. But it’s super easy to create a new category, if needed.
Secure Password Generator
While creating a new entry and generating a new password, a quality progress bar is shown above the password text box, indicating the password’s strength. Please note: the generated password can be displayed or hidden, click the eye icon next to the password text box to change the view.
Once you’ve created your passwords, you can copy them from the app and past them into the services you need to login to.
Import & Export
Another neat feature of KeePassX is the ability to import and export passwords. The password list can be exported to various formats like TXT, HTML, XML and CSV. The CSVs can be imported by spreadsheet applications OpenOffice Calc.
More About The Encryption
The complete database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256-bit key. You’ll be able to access to the KeePassX database either with a password, a key file or even both for better protection. The complete database is encrypted, not only the password fields.
So if you want to manage your passwords in one place, launch KeePassX in your browser.
