Auto-Type is More Secure

The Auto-Type feature is considered a more secure method to Auto-Fill passwords and Auto-Fill forms:

  • Users consciously select and direct the password onwards with a click
  • The entry can indicate a specific window and fields to populate, including: supporting browsers, application dialogs, and even notepad, etc.

Some prominent password manager brands have had leaks/insecurities with their auto-fill methods (i.e. LastPass Security Flaw). We encourage users to exercise caution in using other methods of auto-capture & auto-population, which don't require any user interaction.

  • Enter the username/password into an entry and Save
  • Now select the window to use this entry
  • Method 1: In KeePass for Pleasant > Right-click > Perform auto-type
  • Method 2: Select the entry and press Ctrl + V
  • Method 3: Use the Global Hot key Ctrl + Alt + A, which will look through all KeePass entries to find the match
