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.

Privacy is hugely important to me, and the dev of StrongBox offers a privacy policy that meets my criteria. I highly recommend both the Mac version and the iOS version.

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 wishes,

Excellent support and now works great with Argon2id

I just switched to StrongBox as my macOS Keepass client. Earlier this week, I switched my KDF to Argon2id, and it wouldn't open in StrongBox. I emailed Support, and they put out a patch in less than a day! It now works perfectly with Argon2id! Very impressive speed with the development response. Currently, you cannot switch the KDF within StrongBox, but I used KeePassXC for switching that.

I also love that it syncs folder structure easily across devices...making it simple for everyone sharing the database to browse to find entries. KeePassXC doesn't do that.

I haven't tried the iOS version yet, but I'll be trying that next. Great job!
