TypePassword manager

KeeWeb is a free and open-source password manager compatible with KeePass, available as a web version and desktop apps. The underlying file format is KDBX (KeePass database file).[1]


KeeWeb is written in JavaScript and uses WebCrypto and WebAssembly to process password files in the browser, without uploading them to a server. It can synchronize files with popular file hosting services, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.[2]

KeeWeb is also available as an Electron bundle which resembles a desktop app. The desktop version adds some features not available on web:[3]

  • auto-typing passwords
  • ability to open and save local files
  • sync to WebDAV without CORS enabled

KeeWeb can also be deployed as a standalone server, or installed as a Nextcloud app.[4]


KeeWeb was praised by Ghacks Technology News in 2016 as "brand-new" fixing the "shortcoming of a web-based version" of KeePass, and by Tech Advisor in 2020 as "well-designed cross-platform password manager".[5][6]
