Securing Your Passwords: Chromebook

In previous blog entries, I’ve shared how much I appreciate the wonderful work the free, open source password protection/tracking solution community has done for Keepass. I literally work on Android, GNU/Linux, iOS, and Mac every day (occasionally Windows), and being able to access my passwords across all those platforms is a fantastic!

Unfortunately, I was finding myself spending a lot of time on a Chromebook, so I needed a quick way to access my passwords via the Chromebook. Since you can’t install Windows/Mac/Linux software on a Chromebook–I’ve installed GNU/Linux OS on Chromebook, but switched back to ChromeOS–I needed something to interface with Keepass.

The solution I ran across is “BrowsePass,” which was developed in 2013 and is still under development. You can install it in any Chrome browser, but it also works fine on Chromebooks (get it as an add-on).

BrowsePass reads KeePass (http://keepass.info) password database file (only version 2). It can open both remote and local files. You’d use BrowsePass when you cannot install or download KeePass locally. BrowsePass runs entirely in your browser, no additional software is needed. BrowsePass DOES NOT support files created with KeePass version 1 (KDB files)!

This solution works great, and I encourage you to give it a try.
