Hi Paul,

The plugins are for specific situations.  For instance there's a plugin to generate "pronounceable  passwords", which has some clever algorithm for generating passwords you can supposedly say easily.  Also, the other benefit to using v2 is the widespread abaility of other apps, other than keepass, for reading your database. I've a Mini Keepass app on my iPhone, for instance. There's a linux version I could run on my raspberry pi etc.

It's a big change to normal working practice, using a manager at all, I struggled with it myself.  But now, the freedom just to pop myself into the "user name or email address" field of a  web page and press a hotkey to have me logged in without fuss, whilst knowing my accounts are more secure than they were before, is quite something.

Sean.

Hi Sean,

Yeah I get the egg thing, and you are right of course. It's just learning to work differently which isn't always an easy change to
make, especially as we aren't getting any younger.

You mentioned the plug-ins, what do they offer you that the basic package doesn't? I am going to give it a go and see how we get on.

Thanks for responding so quickly by the way.

Kind regards

Hi,

I'm using V2. I don't remember specifically why I chose it, but it is compatible with more features and plugins.

I'd argue with the egg analogy: are you not doing precisely the same thing by just remembering all your passwords at the moment?

S.

Subject: [BCAB] Keepass password protection

Hi,

I noticed that there are two versions of Keepass and version 2 is not a derivative of version 1. So, which version do those of you
who use this software suggest, and how reliable is it. It feels like having all your eggs in one basket. I looked at the web site
and the difference between the two versions didn't seem that great. Am I missing something?

Thanks

Kind regards
