** IMPORTANT **
NB: This is a non Universal build of Strongbox for macOS only, just a single platform. It does not include a license for iOS.
NB: New Users should prefer the Universal version also available on the App Store.
• Strongbox can now keep databases unlocked as a menu bar app, with no Dock Icon - This will work well with Browser AutoFill or for those who want to run Strongbox as a background app with little or no UI (should help address #620, #621, #623, #631)
• New App Preferences Option: Lock Database on Window Close (now optional, you can keep Databases open in background without main UI) - Preferences > Security & Privacy > Lock Immediately on Window Close
• New App Preferences Option: "Start at Login" now available on Ventura
• UX Improvement: Allow user to choose custom or ascending sort order for Custom Fields on the Details pane directly (#656)
• UX Improvement: Increase basic password length maximum to 128 and allow more precise setting via text entry
• UX Improvement: Printout does not include empty groups or Recycle Bin items (#138)
• UX Improvement: Refactored/Redesigned App Preferences screens
• Performance Improvement: Google Drive unnecessary delay in normal/happy path removed
• Technical groundwork for Unlock/Lock from Third Party Browser AutoFill Plugin
• BugFix: Popout Windows remained open after Database Lock
• BugFix: Updating with a YubiKey that requires UI interaction fails
• Localization Updates

Ratings and Reviews
Had to migrate away from 1password because they're dropping local vaults in version 8 (at least that's what they've said so far). Strongbox has been an fantastic replacement, and the ability to import a 1password export saved me a ton of time! There are maybe a few rough edges, but the strongbox team has shown that they're constantly working to improve it, and the stuff I use daily in it works great, so I'm optimistic it's only ever going to get better! Recommended!
The developer is also very responsive. I found a bug with importing the file exported by 1password, and after a few back and forth emails they understood the issue, and it was fixed within a few more days, great dev, appreciate their dedication to supporting this application.

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.
Full of options and responsive developer
This app is very well thought out. I like that I can use the same app on a Mac and on my iPhone, I like the integration with Dropbox, the ability to easily unlock your file with TouchId/FaceId, the excellent password generation (includes the Diceware method!), and I like the many advanced options such as displaying notes as Markdown. I also happened to have a problem saving on an old Mac and the developer took care of reading my troubleshooting notes and fixed the problem within a few days. Overall this app is a pleasure to use, and the developer is very responsive if there’s any issues - I fully recommend it!
