    It's all in the title.
    So far I have always used Opera 12 and Chrome to store my password, but I guess that isn't a good idea. I would be grateful if anyone could recommend a smooth password manager (no cloud service please) that would be compatible with Sandboxie 4.12.

    Thanks a lot :)

    I'll just throw out the obvious with Password Safe and KeePass.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Password_Safe
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KeePass

    This thread from a couple years ago states that the auto-type feature worked with Sandboxie even back then, and the drag/drop would probably work if you apply the Accessibility template to that sandbox.

    There's also this:

    Thanks, that's very helpful. I'll probably give KeePass a try then :)

    Might as well try them both and see which you like better.

    My guess is if it works for one, it'll work for the other. KeePass was based on Password Safe.

    Personally I actually prefer the tree view in Password Safe, which was not available in KeePass the last time I checked. Also some of the more paranoid folks prefer Twofish encryption over AES, and in KeePass version 2.x, Twofish is only available through a plugin.

    Password Safe also includes an encryption feature from the command line...

    If you're up for testing, I'd be interested to hear how they both work with the latest Sandboxie.

    Actually I haven't installed anything yet, but I'll probably try Keepass in a couple of days :)

    EDIT : just tried Keepass, and it works great ! Thanks again.
