Why was KeeFox created?

I think everyone should be given the opportunity to remain secure on the internet. There were no secure open source password management solutions that are understandable for non-technical people so I decided to create one.

KeePass Password Safe is by far the most powerful open source password management solution available and it works on the three main desktop operating systems (not to mention the ports available on most major mobile operating systems) so it made sense to use it as the base for the KeeFox idea.

I wanted to produce an add-on that would make every day interactions with passwords much easier while allowing as many people as possible to benefit from the security offered by KeePass.

I consider locking the world's information away in propriety and secret formats a fundamental error that is all too common even among otherwise intelligent people. Sometimes it's difficult to find open-standard alternatives that work well so pragmatism is important; for password management there is now an alternative.

What's next for KeeFox

I'm hoping to improve the accuracy of login form detection as part of the large development effort that will be needed to keep KeeFox working with an upcoming Firefox version which fundamentally changes the way it and add-ons like KeeFox access and manipulate the contents of web pages.

You can see other priorities by viewing the milestones on GitHub.

There are always scores of worthwhile feature requests on the KeeFox issue tracker so future KeeFox versions will try to address as many as possible.

Everyone can take a look at how to contribute to improve KeeFox.

If anyone feels they can contribute to development please take a look at|-Development and dive in.
