And better than the cloud based ones as I'm discovering. As I mentioned on another list, my LastPass account was hacked, and I had to change every single password I had stored with them as it was on their servers. Luckily, the only company I had to argue with was Netflix. Someone got into my account, changed the language to Spanish, and the country from the US to Brazil. After getting Netflix to reverse things, and alerting the bank that I had not moved to Brazil, all was finally good.

Hi.

It's a password manager similar to one password or lastpass. The big difference with keepass is that it's free and open source and doesn't have a server component that it syncs to.

It's up to the individual users to figure out how they want there files synced.

For this reason i consider it much more secure than almost any other password manager out there.

Travis, I am using Keypass and I really like it, and find it accessible. I am using version one and can’t remember what the difference is but I did not think I needed version two. I installed the program on the desktop and the laptop then put the data base in a Drop Box folder. I can access it from either system and when you update the database, of course it is updated for both computers. Personally I find it easier to use than One Pass. JMO

Has anyone here had any experience with KeePass? If so, how accessible is it for us? Also, which version works best? I heard there's v1 and a v2, which are supposed to be different from each other. I use NVDA, if that effects the accessibility compared to other screenreaders. Thanks for any help.

We have a Whirlpool microwave, and Whirlpool provided an overlay for the panel with braille to indicate each button. I don't know if they still will provide this, but it works well for us.

Hi.

Thanks for the correction. I haven't actually used v1 as the website seems to encourage people to use v2.

Just re Norman's comment (about v1 possibly not being in development) - both V1.x and V2.x of the desktop Keepass are still being developed.  They don't necessarily release new versions together, but often one will come out and then a couple of weeks later the other will release an update.

Hi.

That's correct, all the apps are unofficial on both IOS and android. However that doesn't mean they don't work or are inaccessible.

Quite the opposite, they worked fine for me, on both platforms. I should dig out the old IPhone 5s and see what i was using.

Hi.

There is although i forget what it's called. Search the ios app store for keepass.

make sure the app you get is compatible with .kdbx files.

The hardest part is getting the file on to the phone. You have to use some sort of cloud storage solution like dropbox if i remember correctly. You could try emailing it as well.

Hi.

Definitely spam. If this was a real message it should have the IP address of the device that supposedly signed in.

Just a note, to the best of my knowledge it's impossible to completely fake an email address. There will be something in the headers that flags the real address.

Hello,

The subject almost says it. After scanning a document with Docuscan, I try to save it.

When I enter a filename for the doc, I use the full path. I press "enter."

It acts as though it was saved but I can't locate in the folder I hoped for nor any place else. I try to find it using the Windows search box. It's gone!

I try saving the doc with no specified path. It's gone into oblivion.

What am I missing here?

It doesn't matter if you recognize who it is from.  Spammers can counterfit any sender they wish.  Such messages are almost always spam.  and use logic when you get such messages.  What sense would it make to log into your account if someone had gotten unauthorized access?  Log into your account to do what?  The message doesn't say.  They want you to go to the fictitious site by following a link, enter your information in whatever form they present, and they will then have your information.  That will give them access to your e-mail account but since a lot of people follow the deplorable practice of using the same password for site after site they set up accounts in, they may also have most of the information they need to log into a lot of other accounts the person has. 
 
If you are unsure if something is spam, go directly to the actual site.  Never follow e-mail links in such cases. 
 
by contrast, Google tells you if there has been an attempted or successful login to your account but they don't tell you something ridiculous such as log into your account with no other information.  And they probably use your name as well, though I don't recall.
 
I've said before, I don't remember if I did on this site, that people should get some sort of general interest technology aggregator.  It is important to keep up, at least minimally, with technology news, including scams.  There are always new scams and sometimes, they are so sophisticated or clever that you need to know about them in advance.

I get the Kim Komando Happening Now newsletter.  It isn't perfect but it keeps me informed about many important developments and stories.  There may be other such aggregators and some people may give information about ones they like.  I'm not recommending this one.  I'm just saying it’s the one I look at.

Hi guys.
I agree that the chef microwave is a rip of because it's so expensive. I my self never had one, My home independent living instructor labeled the controls for me and I have no issues. Although, I wish there was a talking microwave that wasn't so expensive and wouldn't break easily or after only like eighteen months.

Hi all,

There are two options in DocuScan Plus, one is to save the document,
the other is to 'save to this computer'. Your document is right where
you saved it, in the list of documents in The Cloud.

Go to manage documents or whatever the equivalent is and it will be there.

From there you can tab to 'save to this computer'.
