Welcome to Thunderbird Add-ons.
Add extra features and styles to make Thunderbird your own.Close
Simple and secure password management. Login automatically, never forget another password, stay in control of your passwords and improve their security. Powered by the world-renowned KeePass Password Safe.
About this Add-on
KeeFox connects Firefox to KeePass Password Safe, the most popular open source (and free) password manager.
Here are just a few of the reasons to use KeeFox:
- Secure and automatic login to all your favourite websites, even for sites with multiple login "steps" or pages
- Your passwords stay under your control, protected by the respected KeePass Password Safe application and available to all applications on your computer
- Free and open source with no adverts
Further information can be found at http://keefox.org
Note that this add-on will install KeePass Password Safe 2 on your computer if it is not already installed; KeePass requires the Microsoft .NET framework which will also be installed for you if required.
The built-in Firefox password manager will no longer prompt you to save passwords after you install this add-on. Any existing data will not be affected but you are strongly advised to delete any stored passwords from your Firefox password store in order to increase the security of your personal data and to avoid possible confusion in future. However, KeeFox will not work correctly if you clear your saved passwords every time Firefox closes.
Thunderbird support is in beta testing. Please see this page for more information and ask on the forum if you need help. http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/keefox/wiki/Manual/Thunderbird

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.
- Form filling improvements
- Improved "Save password" feature including ability to update an existing password
In a few cases you'll have to change your KeePass entries to get the improved automatic form filling to work perfectly.

KeeFox does not collect any personally identifiable information from you. No private data will be collected at any time; the URLs you visit and the contents of your password database entries will never be collected.
KeeFox will collect the following basic system information: Operating system; Browser; KeeFox addon version; Browser language; .NET framework version; KeePass version.
KeeFox will optionally collect usage statistics which will typically include things like which parts of the KeeFox user interface you clicked on, changes you've made to default options, errors that occurred within KeeFox and basic statistics about the KeePass databases being used, such as how many databases you have opened.
Data is sent securely to a private server. The data will be processed using statistical analysis software to help find common problems and improve decisions regarding future development. Occasionally, we may publicly release reports containing aggregate data and summaries from the collected information.
You can find out more about the part of KeeFox that manages the collection of this data at https://github.com/luckyrat/KeeFox/wiki/en-|-Metrics-collection
Any significant changes to this policy will be announced on the official KeeFox.org website. You can be notified of changes by subscribing to the updates on the website via email or RSS. Insignificant changes such as spelling corrections, re-wording for clarity, etc. may not be announced. All changes will also be included in the release notes of the next version of KeeFox.
