How to access KeePass passwords from Chrome

Installing KeePassHttp with a browser extension isn’t difficult. Here are the simple steps:

  1. If your portable KeePass 2.x directory doesn’t have a “Plugins” directory, create it.
  2. Download the KeePassHttp.plgx file from GitHub (you’ll find a link to this file under the heading Non-Windows / Manual Windows Installation)—there’s no need to build, install Chocolately, etc. Save the .plgx file to your KeePass Plugins directory and restart KeePass if running.
  3. Add to the chromelPass extension to Chrome and click the button to connect. In KeePass, you’ll be prompted to name the key request which comes from the Chrome extension—I called mine chromelPass.
  4. Generate unique passwords to replace the single password you use everywhere.
