Recommendation for a password manager?


Obviously should be Slackware friendly, run on android, and allow local storage (ie not exclusively cloud based).

I considered simply using gpg on a master file, but this is not a good solution for me. Need something that makes it easy to enter passwords (eg copy/paste).

Keepass / keepassx satisfies all those requirements. It's available as a Slackbuild and there's an Android port on F-droid.

You can try LastPass, although it is cloud based. If you are expecting that the device can connect to the internet sometime to sync the passwords, you can give it a try. Once it synced, it can work offline.

I've been very pleased with figaro password manager. Have used it for quite a while with no issues.

I have been using Lastpass for at least a year now. It has been pretty reliable!

Try Universal Password Manager
http://upm.sourceforge.net/index.html

I've been mostly using it on my Android tablet but it's multi-platform, written in java, runs on Slackware fine.
And it's free and GPL licensed.

They don't mention it's available for Android.
And it requires Gnome which is not quite Slackware, or anything for that matter, friendly.
Both of the above were the OP requirements.

I use 1Password on my iOS devices. It has an Android port. I've heard that the Windows version works in Wine (and that includes syncing with Dropbox), but haven't had a chance to confirm that yet.

Another vote for KeePassX here. Been using that for several years now.

+1, with the db inside an eCryptfs folder. Over ssh, pwsafe.

Thanks everyone!

I've looked at most of the ones you mentioned, and KeePassX is definitely my favorite. I am using it now, so I'm marking this as solved.

1Password just won me over with its 1Password Anywhere feature (http://help.agilebits.com/1Password3...danywhere.html). It works reasonably well in Wine too.

For Dropbox sync, I just symlink my key directory into my Dropbox sync folder.

The current (3.1.40) universal installer works under 14.0 64bit. If you use seamonkey, modify 'firefox' references beginning at line 26 and 36 in 'install_lastpass.sh'.

The Fedora version of Pocket (lastpass offline tool) needs /lib64/ linkage:
Code:
ln -s libssl.so.1.0.0 libssl.so.10; ln -s libcrypto.so.1.0.0 libcrypto.so.10
but seems to work correctly.
Cheers,
