How to Import the Keepass database from Dropbox in MiniKeePass

Importing Keepass database from dropbox is really easy, but for the first time you may get confused about it. In this post I will be showing you how to import keepass database (*.kdbx) from your dropbox account to your MiniKeepass app on iPhone.

MiniKeepass and DropBox:

For importing database for minikeepass (iPhone version of keepass) from dropbox first you need two things.

1. MiniKeepass App
2. Dropbox App

Install both app in your iphone. Now open dropbox app, and login to your dropbox account. After login navigate to Keepass database (*.Kdbx) in your dropbox app. Once you see the keepass database just tap on the database. Now you will see an error message as

Unable to view file

This file type can’t be viewed

Unable to view file.This file type can't be viewed

Whenever we saw that error message we thought that, it is not possible to open the keepass file in dropbox. But wait, there is one more option available below that error message. Just have a look on the “Right Sidebelow the error message, You will see some option like squarebox with an arrow, Click on that option.

Very helpful, but I had actually already been able to import the data base, what I can’t seem to accomplish, is making changes and then exporting the new data to DropBox. MiniKeePass keeps erasing my data and all my attempts have been failing. If you’re having success, could you please post, or email me, a procedure similar to the one above.

That’s cool tip. I have been using iKeePass (paid app). Minikeepass is something new to me.

Just installed and found it pretty cool. It does have some intial bugs. Looking for fixes in upcoming versions.

Thanks for the share.
