About this app

This app is compatible with Keepass2Android.

Instructions for setting up this app:

1.) Install ADB on your computer. ADB is the Android Debug Bridge, you find instructions how to do this on https://developer.android.com/studio/command-line/adb.html
2.) Open a command prompt and change to the directory where the adb executable is located (e.g. [Android SDK location]\\platform-tools).
3.) Launch an adb shell. Therefore, type "adb shell"
4.) In the adb shell, enter
pm grant keepass2android.plugin.keyboardswap2 android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS
and hit the Enter key.
5.) Type "exit" to leave the adb shell.
6.) Go to Keepass2Android > Settings > App Settings > Password-Access > Keyboard switching and enable "Auto-switch keyboard"

NOTE for Xiaomi devices: You might have to enable some settings before running the adb shell command, see https://www.xda-developers.com/keyboardswap-plugin-keepass2android-automatically-switches-keyboards-without-root/#comment-3432883576

This is an extra level of security for protecting your passwords of sensitive accounts, such as banks and brokerages, etc. It was worth the 30 minutes to get adb installed and allow this app to work on my Moto G7. It works well, providing buttons to paste user name, password, URL, etc. The only issue is I'm not sure if I'm configuring / using it right to auto-switch back to my regular keyboard. But that's a minor inconvenience.

This works great, and is even more secure and convenient than using the built-in clipboard option to copy and paste passwords. The instructions listed could use these two prerequisite steps: 1. Enable developer options on your phone by going to "Settings", "System", "About phone", and tapping the "Build number" at the bottom of the list 7 times. 2. Enable USB debugging on your phone by going to "Settings", "System", "Developer options", and scrolling down to the "USB debugging" option and turning it on. You can turn USB debugging off again at the end.

I installed this today on my S21 with Android 11. It's a real PITA if you've never used ADB. The text is case sensitive and I couldn't get it to work until I read a previous review that corrected an error in the instructions. You must use a space between 'keyboardswap2' and 'android...' Don't use a "." After running the ADB instructions again, it worked perfectly.
