Integration into the browser

There are extensions for the Firefox and Chrome browsers that allow the browsers to communicate directly with the running KeePassXC.

That means concrete:

  • Input fields that are used for usernames get a key icon that asks KeePassXC for the username and password for that web address. You can also use the key combination Alt+Shift+U (like "User").
  • You can use Alt+Shift+G (like "generate") in any text box (maybe you want to have a random username?) to open a window with a randomly generated password.
  • When you subscribe to a service, the extension offers you to store the combination of web address, username and password directly in KeePassXC.
