https://blogs.dropbox.com/developers/2016/06/api-v1-deprecated/ Dropbox turn off their V1 Api later this year and when they do, the Dropbox functionality within Password Safe Pro will  cease to function. This does not affect Lockrz which already uses the V2 api. As Password Safe Pro was discontinued over a year ago, it is no longer officially…

Corrupt Databases

Some people reported that after updating, their database vanished. I could not work out what could possibly be the cause as there is no code in Password Safe that does this without confirmation from the user. I recently spotted this in my log file. I can only assume that the…

Version 3.4 Beta Preview

A beta version is available for advanced users and testers. As always before installing a new release, make backups of your data in case anything untoward happens and you can revert to the release version with your data intact.


Please report any issues or problems via the normal support portal at https://www.kuffs.co.uk/support


New Landing Page

The new landing page aims to mimic the style of Windows 8 Metro.

Application options and notifications are on the far left. Wallets are in the middle and news items (i.e this blog) are shown on the right.

The application will now stay resident in your system tray for as long as it is running. This allows you to right click the tray icon and directly open any of your wallets.

The update notification has been moved to this page so it is less intrusive when working with your wallets. Pressing the update notification will open the Update manager.


Update Manager

The update manager now gives a little more information  to help you decide whether to install or skip the update.

Wallet Changes

Each wallet now opens as a separate screen with its own options which should be less confusing when working with multiple wallets.

Each wallet can have a separate theme to assist you in keeping them separate in your mind. e.g. Your work wallet could be blue whilst your home wallet could be black. This makes your wallet instantly recognisable.

Selection Improvements.

Card selection is now (hopefully) a more natural experience that mimics the Windows Explorer selection more faithfully.

Multiple selection of cards has now been improved. For Example:

Note that when both cards are selected, the field list now combines the two card entries.

Only fields with identical names and type are displayed.

If all fields in the selection contain identical contents then the field displays as normal.

If all cards have the same field but with different contents, the field title is shown in Bold

Editing any fields when the field list is combined will change the field content in ALL selected cards.

3.1 Released

3.1 has been released. There have been some small issues so far depending on which version the users were upgrading from. If Password Safe is “Mission Critical” to you, you may want to hold off on upgrading until it fully stabilises (or at least keep a backup of your current…

Next Version

Here are some screenshots of the next version. It is taking longer than expected. I don’t feel very motivated at present. Hopefully posting these will elicit some feedback which may spur me on. If anybody wishes to try the unfinished version please let me know. The screenshots show 2 new…

What about wallets?

Version 2.5 of KPS for Windows introduced the concept of wallets so you can separate your cards in different files or allow multiple users to use the same application. Wallets have the extension .SDF and are created using the wallet wizard. The actual wallet file is saved in the same…
