Mozilla brought out a password app called Lockbox, which lets you fetch the stored logins from your Desktop Firefox.
- A 41 mb kludge about the size of Firefox for Android
- No, you can't enter logins, read only
- Adjust tracker included, who wants privacy
And last not least, it's always good to have all of your logins on a Server in the web. Sooner or later, somebody will love that.
IMHO, use Keepass2Android or KeepassDX, but not this crap.
Well it has to be 41 mb and kludgey, otherwise people might find where they nsa's code is before becoming exasperated and throwing it out the window!
@rudolf What's an adjust tracker?
@rudolf Hm that sounds unlike Mozilla. How do you know the tracker is in Lockbox?
@rudolf if it's based on the same protocol as Firefox Sync, then everything is encrypted clientside and the server does not learn the passwords.
@Wolf480pl I didn't say the logins a readily readable, but those leaks do happen, even though it was not expected. I simply won't take this risk.
@rudolf what kinda leaks do you mean?
@rudolf looks like that was because LastPass is a website, and even if you use the browser extension, the website still takes part in the process.
I think Firefox Sync is much better isolated from websites you open (Lockbox certainly is as it's a standalone app), but I can nothing to back that.
@Wolf480pl The keyword is unexpected. If I could predict these, I'ld be real rich.
Remember all the crypto stuff, like WEP, TLS 1.0, etc. which used to be safe once upon a time, until someone proved otherwise.
If others don't have my encrypted logins, they can't crack them.
@rudolf well yeah but then how do you sync your keepass store between devices?
Well there probably are ways to do this such that it never leaves your LAN. And depending on your requirements and threat model, that may be the best option.
@rudolf 'pass' is very comfy too. Syncs well to Android with Password Store.
