Frequently Asked Questions
This is where you will find most answers. If there should still be any questions left, don't hesitate to contact us. Updated 1/20/2019


Is KeeForm portable?
KeeForm is not portable. KeeForm needs to communicates with a browser extension. However browsers do not allow to install extensions in a portable manner.
Browser Add-on permissions?
The browser add-on needs permission to read/change any website. Or else it wouldn't be able to fill forms. It also needs to be able to communicate with the KeeForm app on your machine ("native messaging")
KeeForm Password?
If you want, you can specify a password to secure the communication between the KeeForm and Firefox (e.g. to prevent other apps "from accidentally" eavesdropping that communication). Don't forget to set the same password on the options page of the KeeForm Firefox extension as well. DO NOT USE YOUR KEEPASS PASSWORD FOR THIS.
KeeForm could not connect to browser ...
KeeForm communicates by default with ip address and port 8484. Make sure that a firewall doesn't block that ip and port. You can change that if needed by running the installer again, but don't forget to set the same ip/port in the KeeForm browser extension as well.

KeeForm "red light"

After enabling the KeeForm extension you should be able a see different color indicators on the KeeForm toolbar icon.

Blue indicates the extension is initialzing. After a short time the indicator should turn green. If the color indicator turns red, then the extension is not able to "open a connection" to the KeeForm application, either because another browser is using it already, or because the browser was not able to start a key component of KeeForm. In that case open the Windows task manager and check whether a process with the name "keeform_host-win.exe" is running. If not, try to close KeePass and all browser windows, and re-install KeeForm

Can I install KeeForm in both Firefox and Chrome?
Yes, you can. But KeeForm will be active ("green light") only in one browser - which is usually the browser that was opened first. KeeForm will always open the browser with the "green light", regardsless of what browser was configured during the installation process.
Does KeeForm work on all sites?
KeeForm works only, if the username and password fields are on the same page. KeeForm uses just a simple, but effective heuristic method to automate logins, and it works 98% of the time ("ballpark estimate"). For the remaining 2% you can still use KeePass' auto-typing. Having said that, should you ever encounter a one-page login where KeeForm does not work, please do send us the URL. We will try to improve KeeForm.
How to uninstall KeeForm?

Please run the un-installer first. This will take care any registry entries and remove the KeeForm folder from your KeePass installation.

The un-installer will also try to remove the "URL override" configuration by restoring the previous value.

If that fails, you can also manually remove the override configuration with:
MENU tools -> options -> TAB integration -> BUTTON url overrides

If you see something like cmd://"{APPDIR}\KeeForm\" ... simply remove it

How to re-install KeeForm?
It is recommended to uninstall KeeForm before re-installing it.


Does KeeForm contain any malware?
KeeForm does not contain any malware. If AV software reports any issue, this will be a false positive. You can see the current malware scan status at

How much does KeeForm cost?
KeeForm is free.
Why is there no GitHub repository yet?
This is on our todo-list! But the installer contains the source code of the KeeForm FireFox and Chrome browser extensions, the KeeForm native messaging component, and the KeePass add-on. Everything needed to run/inspect KeeForm. GPL licensed.
Why is there no support for Edge?

We do not have the skillset yet to create the "native messaging" part for Microsoft Edge.

But if somebody is willing to help with that part, please contact us. Thank you!

Do you track me?
KeeForm does not track your login data. NEVER!
Does KeeForm contain any coin-ware?
KeeForm does not and will never run any "cryptocurrency mining" software.
