    Greetings All-

    I’ve been using KeePass for quite some time now–ever since Roboform reneged on their free for life program.  One feature that I miss is the ability to fill out an online form: name, address, phone number, credit card data, etc. Since the order of this information is never the same for any given form, I haven’t been able to figure out how to make this work in KeePass, other than to  drag each piece of information over, one field at a time.  Is there a plugin, or perhaps I’m just not understanding the autotype sequence, to make this work.

    I also find myself (at least for some websites), needing to frequently edit the “target window” to make the autotype sequence work. Usually only a problem if the logon field is labeled something other than user name.  As always: thanks for any insights.

    Casey H.

      Not answering your question specifically, but maybe a solution. Roboform still has a free version for one device. You could use that along side Keepass for form filling. And, if you need it on another device, just use another email address. Just no syncing.

      KeePass does not integrate with browsers so it can’t determine what data goes in what fields. You need a browser add-in to do the integration, like KeeForm (it doesn’t do CCs AFAIK).

      I drag n drop for the times I need to add CC data. Only takes 30 seconds.

      cheers, Paul

      I went ahead and installed Roboform Free and use it for form filling only–KeePass for login credentials.  I guess I just like the ease of clicking once and having the software fill in all the blanks.  From what I have been able to determine, it appears that Roboform is the only password manager with this capability.  Anyway, using it alongside works perfectly for me.  The only issue I have is the free version only allows installation on one device.  I have my main PC and my Laptop.  It would be nice to be able to install it on both.

        You could try with a different email address for the other computer. I know that used to work.

        Most password managers fill in forms automatically:

      I wondering about this, and perhaps what the definition for form-filling might be.  Perhaps login credentials are considered form-filling.  I have used KeePass for a number of years now, and I haven’t been able to figure out a way to collectively enter things like name, address, email, credit card info, etc.  The best seems to be dragging whatever pieces of information the form requires, into their respective fields, one item at a time.

      According to Brian’s recent article, I think I’ll give Bitwarden a try.  Nothing on their website seems to indicate this feature, however.  We’ll see, and I’ll post back.

      I use Kee for this. But there are more similar plugins listed on that page.

      I’ve installed Bitwarden on both my main PC and Laptop.  It took a while to figure things out, but it’s up and running.  It looks like for anything to work properly, the browser extension must be installed.  I didn’t really want to do that.  I’m used to KeePass’s autotype function, where it loads the webpage then enters the relevant detail.  I then hit Enter, and all is good.

      I’m also trying to figure out how to change the Bitwarden data storage location.  The only thing I can find is the default location (Users/Roaming/Bitwarden).  I can’t find out how to change it.  My Keepass file is located on my data drive rather than in Users.  That drive gets backed up every time I log off.  I have no data in my Users folder, and it only gets backed up via system image, once the latest monthly Windows update proves itself.
