Ratings and Reviews
Really good if you want to stick with keepass compatibility
The main reason I got this app is that it is the first password manager app that can send me totp & motp codes as well as passwords. Its a bit bare, but doesn't send my data over the cloud, doesn't want ad-infinitum subscription feeds, and uses version 4 of the KDBX password format with built-in gpu cracking resistance via the argon (hashing in 2019) library instead of the old and crufty pbkdf2. I also like the ability to use touch id on IOS or mac, and the ability to use keyfiles (a keepass normality).

Hi! Thank you very much for this review, I'm really glad you find the app useful, and I hope to work to add more features and make it less bare! All the best, -Mark
Great on iOS - even better on macOS
I originally purchased Strongbox for iOS so that I could open my password file with my iPhone using the files app on a LAN. That is a wonderful app. While I had been evaluating the desktop version, I was happy with KeepassXC. Until today that is. I upgraded catalina recently and when I started KeepassXC, it crashed. And it continued to crash every time. No access to my password file. StrongBox to the rescue. I clicked on StrongBox and my keepass file was opened without issue. Needless to say, my evaluation is over. I just upgraded and from now on I'm using Strongbox everywhere. And the best thing is I can keep my passwords locally; no cloud storage. I cannot recommend Strongbox enough, no matter where you need to use it.

Thanks a million, really appreciate the time you've taken to leave such a positive review and of course very happy that the app is working well for you and was able to get you out of a pinch.
Best KeePass App!
I’ve been using StrongBox for Mac for about 6 months now. Previously, I was using KeePassXC, but after trialing StrongBox for a short period of time, I made the switch.
The app is very stable and it is evident that a lot of thought and effort has been put into it. The free trial is exceedingly generous, but I didn’t need to take advantage of it, as I was already using StrongBox on my iPhone and was more than happy to also purchase the Mac version.
The dev also offers excellent customer support. I had a question about the iPhone version that I couldn’t find the answer to in the FAQs, and I received a friendly, knowledgable response in a few hours.
There are few choices available for using KeePass on the Mac and iPhone. In my opinion, StrongBox is the best, and it is worth every penny. While paying for an app doesn’t guarantee its longevity, it’s a far better business model than free. Actually, there is no such thing as a free app. You pay for it via forfeited privacy, which is why I don’t use free apps.
