- Rated 5 out of 5awesome!
- Rated 5 out of 5I'm giving it 5 stars, but with two minor crits.
One: you don't include sync.com as one of your cloud providers, which, given that they're probably one of the most secure options available (even they can't access your data) is a shame. I keep my kdbx file in my sync box, but I was still able to add it as a valid option by using the "local file" option. (Like most cloud options, they provide local file access).
And, having added that and my keyfiles, and entered the master password, I duly went hunting for a trial site to test it on. This is where you scored big time. I have been a Keefox user for a couple of years. Up until firefox went quantum and keefox went bananas and ditched the most important functionality in their plugin. I refer to the ability to use the extension simultaneously as bookmark database AND autofill ("Find and Fill" functionality).
If I want to login to one of my email accounts, I just want to type in email and get a reasonably short list of contenders, click on the one that matters, get taken to its login page and have the username and password fields completed automatically. Keefox stopped doing that and made it clear that they weren't even going to try to find a way to do it which would be compatible with the new Firefox environment. Their ludicrous suggestion was that I bookmark the relevant password protected sites. (I have over 800)
But you've done it. And what you've sacrificed to make that possible is entirely rational and makes much more sense than what they've done.
Setting up the username and password for an account is something you (generally) only do once for a given account. But you might visit that account thousands of times. Which would you rather lose - the automatic capture of credentials (a one off) or the automatic "find and fill" option which you'll need forever? It's a bleedin nobrainer!
The second criticism actually cost you a star, until I figured out my mistake and edited this review. You need to make the "remember" option slightly more obviously relevant to the PASSWORD DATABASE. I looked at it and ignored it, (assumed it was site specific instead of relating to the password file) after "find and fill" on my first test site. Went to another and the sodding password file was locked. That was because I'd left the "remember option" on "don't remember" instead of my preference (remember until browser exit).
Otherwise thumbs up
2 observations after a couple of days using it:
1 Displaying the Keyfile name is almost as bad as displaying the password in plaintext. Strongly suggest you hide that.
2 Can we have a way to store preferences (like the "Remember" option above)Hey there! There's a lot here to respond to, but I'm going to try.
1. Sync.com is completely impossible to support. They provide no developer APIs or authentication. It's a shame, but no amount of effort on my behalf will make sync.com work.
2. Making the remember password meaning more obvious is definitely a goal. Actually, a lot of the controls in Tusk need better explanation. I'm pretty much out of space to put anything else on that line, but a hover dialog or something in the wiki is needed... I agree with you there.
3. I disagree that showing the keyfile name is bad. KeeWeb, KeePassXC, and KeePass2Android all do this. The keyfile doesn't provide security by being "obscure", i.e. a secret file on your computer. It provides a second factor of security. You combine "something you know" (master password) with "something you have" (a keyfile) to get strong encryption. Google "security through obscurity" for a great discussion on this topic.
4. Do you mean exporting settings so you can move them between browsers? This would be a great feature, but right now there aren't very many settings to keep track of, so it isn't much of a burden to get set up how you want it. As the settings complexity grows, I imagine this will happen.
Thanks for the detailed feedback and review!
- Rated 5 out of 5I moved from Chrome to Firefox and looked for keepass-less solution for on Firefox similar to CKP on Chrome.
Tusk just filled CKP's boots perfectly.
Maybe only one feature could be improved is to able keepass key file from cloud and not locally, but that is not critical for me as long as is database is available online.
In ideal world to be able to edit database, but that is also great for me as read only.
For me it was last and completing step from migrating from Chrome to Firefox, TY!!!
- Rated 4 out of 5I've been using Kee for some months now but the implementation seems somewhat hacky, plus I had to have Keepass always open. When I read the description I loved the idea of direct cloud service connection and having WebDAV really is the swiss army knife interface to almost all self hosted services.
I really miss auto-fill-in (without any manual intervention) and one-click credential adding to the database though... IMHO no Keepass based plugin reaches the level of perfection of LastPass there...
EDIT: Sorry, read-only functionality is clearly stated... While I understand the impliciations for security, from my perspective the balance between security and usability is off here... updated to 4/5Thanks for the feedback. While these features are convenient for the user, they compromise the security of your extension and your personal security. Moreover, Tusk is documented as read-only and does not indicate that it is able to edit your database.
- Rated 4 out of 54 star but it will become 5 star if only i can use it...
Indeed to have a better security level my keepass database is saved in the cloud but it has'nt any extension (instead of the usual .kdbx); in that way non one can link the file to Keepass.
Tusk don't love this setup because don't recognize the file.
I don't think it will be a big problem to allow the manual selection of database file......
...so 5 stars can be incoming ;-)Hey there! Thanks for your review. For anyone reading in the future, I want to clarify that saving your keepass database with a different file extension to "hide" it doesn't increase your security and is actually kind of pointless. The reason is that while file "extensions" are a convenient way for the operating system to identify types of files, they are actually betrayed by their "magic numbers".
Because of the way every cloud storage provider implements their API, Tusk would need to be redesigned with a "file picker" rather than looking for kdbx extensions. This isn't something I'm likely to do.
- Rated 4 out of 5At first I was not entirely sure of everything I did, but I quickly found my way around, and must say this addon + MacPass is an interesting alternative to well-known cloud-based password managers. It might be a bit more user friendly (being able to write new passwords/updated passwords from the browser would be excellent, particularly, and avoid the pain of manually reopening the password file and creating/updating the proper entry) and is not yet 100% out-of-the-way, but it's really close. I really appreciate the addon and I think there's still room for important features. However, the existing feature set is already really interesting and works really well.
- Rated 4 out of 5Works perfectly
Only 4 stars because I would like to use shortcuts to fill my form
- Rated 5 out of 5One of my "required" add-ons. Although it seems to be broken on Ubuntu 18.04 with Firefox 59, It works flawlessly in Chrome.
Get it nowThank you! I'm looking into the ubuntu 18.04 issue and will hopefully be out with a fix soon.
EDIT: Documented in https://github.com/subdavis/Tusk/issues/146 and due to ibus/ibus bug
The pop-up can be accessed in a normal tab.
1. Navigate to about:addons in Firefox
2. Click preferences next to Tusk
3. In the address bar, change options.html to be popup.html
You can bookmark this page for quick access.
- Rated 5 out of 5Worked like a charm, but then I imported the same local db and key file on fresh firefox and ubuntu 18.04, clicked tusk icon and got the message 'unlocking...' and then it's over. never got to the menu to even enter the password. Dev is very responsive on git so keep it up!
- Rated 5 out of 5Way better than KeepassXC-browser. The "Shared Link" thing doesn't work with OneDrive either...but regular OneDrive connection works.
- Rated 5 out of 5Best solution I have come across. Password not stored indefinitely, allows sharing links from nextcloud to only the encrypted database, handles the odder sign in systems (google) where autofill failed and, best of all, a simple good looking UI capable of all but deep entry editing.
- Rated 5 out of 5Great, works like a charm.
- Rated 5 out of 5Brilliant! Easy-to-use. Just a bit of a lag to reopen the database on each invocation but not really annoying. Could probably speed it up by working with a local copy instead of cloud-based version.
Any chance of a form filler too (addresses, credit cards, etc)? :-) Echo other reviews requesting ability to write to the database too. e.g. automatically recognize when a new site is used, offer to generate and save password.
I'd be happy to pay an annual subscription fee and contribute to the project to ensure ongoing support and development and to ensure that it remains secure, ad-free and open-source (?)
- Rated 5 out of 5I was looking for an alternative to KeePassXC-Browser and found Keepass Tusk! Perfect to avoid opening KeepassXC each time I want to fill passwords. Morevoer Keepass Tusk works flawlessly contrary to KeePassXC-Brower which requires to connect again and again.
- Rated 5 out of 5If there's only one extension you'd want to install on Firefox or Chrome, it will be this. I cannot imagine life without it and it is absolutely perfect at what it sets out to do.
- Rated 5 out of 5UPDATE: The developers comments below are correct, I did confuse the keyfile with the database - I don't even use a keyfile for my database. Thanks for clearing that up. Five stars!Original reply:
Hey there! I just want to let you and future readers know that database corruption with Tusk is completely impossible.
The reviewer above simply got their keyfile and database mixed up. When tusk tried to decrypt their database, either they tried to decrypt their keyfile instead of their database or tried to use their database as a keyfile.
Your keyfile goes in the "manage keyfile" tab.
Your database goes in the "manage databases" tab.
Please be aware that Tusk cannot under any circumstances corrupt your keepass db. It does not have write access to any cloud providers or direct filesystem access, and cannot modify your keepass db in any way. You should always keep a backup anyway, but Tusk never requests write permissions to any third party storage.
Thanks for updating your review!! Most people never bother doing that :D
- Rated 5 out of 5Thank you so much for bringing this to Firefox! Proper Keepass support was the only reason I was still using Chrome and could't use Firefox as my default browser.
- Rated 5 out of 5Works like a charm.
- Rated 5 out of 5Has a straight, modern UI and just works
- Rated 4 out of 5Works great, I would give it 5 stars, could it also write to the db. The way it is now, you still need another program to write to your keepass db. This could also be seen as a feature, I guess it depends on, what you want.
