    KeePass doesn't have auto-fill, but it does have a pc version that you can use the same database. You can even use something like dropbox and have the file sync automatically between devices.

    KeePassDroid does give icons in the notification bar for the selected entry to copy/paste into fields. select an entry in keepass, then go to where you need login info (like the browser), select copy user from the notification bar, then paste, select copy password, then paste.

    KeePass also has a password generator built into it as well.

    I notice you had a bb. i'm coming from a torch where i was using quicklaunch. I can deal with cutting and pasting but i was really looking for an auto-fill feature, even more-so than a sync feature(although it's a bonus). But mainly, the big picture, security. I've noticed keepass in threads but it seems like people were teetering on keypass, b-folders and keeper. any thoughts there?

    I read something abouta syncing issue with inspire, which i use, and a few other phones. do you know anyting about that? also, i checked and didn't see anything about an autofill feature but i might've missed it. one more thing....it says something about buying the desktop software separately, plus the cost of splashid. Do u sync your account?

    The desktop companion has the auto-fill function.

    There was an issue with syncing across devices; I fixed this with router port forwarding, which was fairly easy. It has worked flawlessly since.

    Yes, you will need to purchase both portions (device and desktop) separately... IIRC about $30, give or take a nickel.

    Also, syncing is done over the same wifi network.

    I have used SplashID over a few OS platforms, which is another plus.

    I had the exact same question as you. I had been using Spb Wallet but they dont support Android.
    So far, I am playing with LastPass which is free with autofill for the desktop and they have a app for DolphinBrowser autofill for the Android.

    They store the passwords on their servers and it costs $12/yr subscription though. You have to have a subscription if you want to use it on a mobile device...
    I've just started using it last night and am just about ready to get a year or two until something else comes along.

    thanks, but are u saying the app is called dolphinbrowser autofill? or i can only autofill using my phone through the dolphin browser? hope that doesn't sound too ridiculous.

    Sorry for being unclear-
    I believe LastPass Android app has another plugin for the Android browser Dolphin which I have started to use over the stock browser. Supposedly, it can autofill within the Dolphin browser. Check out Dolphin in the Market.

    I havent tried LastPass on Android yet because I am busy testing it out on Windows Explorer right now and moving my Autofill passwords from Spb Wallet over to Lastpass. Lastpass does have a 14day trial for Android though.

    Sorry for sounding like a ad for Lastpass but it's the only solution I've found so far that seems to suite my needs- other then the annual fee!

    Dolphin has some nice short cuts via gestures that I like- for example, I draw a "G" and it brings me to the google docs site...
    I'm coming from a Touch Pro2 3 weeks ago so anything is an improvement for me!

    post how you like Lastpass or whatever app you end up using...

    LastPass is a really good service. I get that and XMarks for $20/year and they allow me to keep all my bookmarks and passwords synced across all the computers I use.

    I have researched LastPass and it is trustworthy. It uses a zero knowledge system that the file stored on their servers is encrypted and even they cannot recover your data if you lose your master password. I even keep my credit card info in there and I am very paranoid about that.

    From the apps I have played with it seems to work with Android the best. It does autofill. It does not do it 100% on every site but the Dolphin plugin works more than it doesn't. I hope this gets better. You can also use LastPass's own browser which fills fairly well but is not as full featured. It is also fairly easy to just run the app and copy the username and/or password then hold home, go to your favorite browser and paste.

    Yep, I'm playing with Lastpass this weekend but I think I'll pay for the 1 yr subscription pretty soon.
    $12 isnt so bad.

    The minimalist views do take a little getting used to from someone that came from SPB Wallet though...

    Thanks paladin. I think that lastpass is where I'm heading. Definitely has some good reviews and input from the community. Thanks for the elaboration

    Have you guys thought of using Firefox as a browser both on Android and on your computer?
    It will sync all your passwords automatically. In android the browser is quite good, some things I like better than the default browser (gestures), some other not so much (time to open and time to render pages).
    I'm just hoping that Google will offer something similar with Chrome and Android browser!

    I use dosphin for my phone. Works well...has gestures also, and great wrap text. give it a try. I wasn't trying to sync my pswds anywhere i just wanted a secure "lockbox" for them. LastPass is pretty good, but it seems like all these apps cost a little...price you pay for some security

    I have a similar question...but it has more to do with passwords on apps that require logging into, not browser sites...

    I use lastpass at home, but am not sure the "autofill" function will work with apps?...I'm new to Android/smartphones, so I'm still on a steep learning curve...

    Thanks in advance for any assistance/help that can/will be provided...

    You can create an entry for your app, launch the Lastpass app and copy the username then long press the home key and call up your app and paste into it. Then go back to LP and do the same with the password. It is not elegant at all but would save you from having to remember the passwords. What kinds of app require a password?
    About the only thing I ever type in is a password for are a few notes that I like to leave encrypted for work combos etc...

    If you get the "Everywhere" version you can sync it on multiple computers plus your Android device. Highly recommend. The Android app is free.
