  • This feature, and a password hint feature, are scheduled to be included in version 4.3.

    Until then, there is a fairly easy workaround:

    -Export your passwords. For this I would use a plaintext export.
    -Delete your account (File > Delete Account)
    -Recreate your account with the new password
    -Import your passwords
    -Delete the plaintext export

  • Hi Mike,
    I exported the passords (.psw file) but when importing the file in my new account, it ask a password to access the file and non of the passwords I used until now would work to import the data...
    As I deleted the previous account, how can I do to import my password data?

  • Hi Laetitia,

    I'm sorry that I missed your reply before.  I don't think I was ever notified of it.

    Hopefully by now you have been able to restore the passwords but just in case:

    If you did a plain-text export you should not need a password.  Try opening the PSW file in a text editor, if it's really plaintext you will be able to read it all the passwords.  If there's something wrong with the file you can always add them manually to your new account.

    If it's a bunch of crazy looking mumbo jumbo that means the file is encrypted and you'll need a password.  It will always use the Master Password of the account you exported it from to encrypt it.  You should have had to type that very password in order to delete your account.

    If that fails, you could do the following:

    -If you are using the cloud you can restore your data from there.  You will need to recreate your deleted account (Same username, Master Password, Encryption Type) and sign into the cloud.

    -If you have a backup of your Application Data folder (like backed up by Time Machine or on a separate drive) you could restore the file called Keeper.DAT that was backed up before you deleted your account.  That should restore it completely.

    I hope that helps.  If none of that works please check the version number of the app (In the About menu) and let me know what it is, and what your operating system is.

    -Mike
