Keepass2Android Password Safe developed by Philipp Crocoll (Croco Apps) is an open source password manager ported to Android.
It uses the original KeePass libraries to handle file access, reads and saves files in .kdbx format that’s fully compatible with the popular KeePass for Windows and other desktop operating systems.
Although the user interface is developed based on KeePassDroid, this app offers more advanced features and it works either offline or online.
Besides opening files from your local device, it allows you to access and sync files instantly from the web and cloud services including Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropbox.
In addition to using a full password to open your database file, you have an option to enable QuickUnlock, which allows you to unlock the database with only a short part of the master password to speed up the access. If you fail on the first try of the short password, you will then need to use the full password.
Is this safe? the developer answers, “when using 3 characters and assuming 70 characters in the set of possible characters, the attacker has a 0.0003% chance of opening the file. If this sounds still too much for you, choose 4 or more characters in the settings.”
If you’re only keeping your database file locally and don’t need to access it over the Internet, use Keepass2Android Offline instead for reduced features and it’s offered by the same developer.
