Mithilfe des Passwortmanagers KeePassXC können Sie:

  • Viele Passwörter in einer verschlüsselten Datenbank speichern, die durch eine Passphrase Ihrer Wahl geschützt ist.

  • Immer unterschiedliche und stärkere Passwörter verwenden, da Sie sich nur an die Passphrase zum Entsperren der Datenbank erinnern müssen.

  • Generate very strong random passwords.

For more detailed instructions on how to use KeePassXC, refer to the official KeePassXC User Guide.

Eine Passwortdatenbank erstellen und speichern

Follow these steps to create a new password database and save it in the Persistent Storage for use in future working sessions.

To learn how to create a Persistent Storage, read our documentation on the Persistent Storage.

  1. When starting Tails, unlock the Persistent Storage.

  2. In Tails, choose Applications ▸ Persistent Storage.

  3. Verify that the Persistent Folder feature is turned on.

  4. To start KeePassXC, choose Applications ▸ Accessories ▸ KeePassXC.

  5. Um eine neue Datenbank zu erstellen, klicken Sie auf Neue Datenbank erstellen.

  6. Continue with the defaults settings in the configuration screens General Database Information and Encryption Settings.

  7. The database is encrypted and protected by a passphrase. In the configuration screen Database Credentials:

    • Geben Sie eine Passphrase Ihrer Wahl in das Textfeld Passwort eingeben ein.
    • Type the same passphrase again in the Confirm password text box.
    • Click Done.
  8. Save the database as Passwords.kdbx in the /home/amnesia/Persistent folder.

Wiederherstellen und Entsperren der Passwortdatenbank

Follow these steps to unlock the password database saved in the Persistent Storage from a previous working session.

  1. When starting Tails, unlock the Persistent Storage.

  2. In Tails, choose Applications ▸ Accessories ▸ KeePassXC.

  3. If you have a database named Passwords.kdbx in your Persistent folder, KeePassXC automatically displays a dialog to unlock that database.

    Enter the passphrase for this database and click Unlock.

  4. If you enter a wrong passphrase the following error message appears:

    Error while reading the database: Invalid credentials were provided, please try again.

Storing your KeePassXC settings in the Persistent Storage

To store your KeePassXC settings in the Persistent Storage, in addition to the password database:

  1. Turn on the Dotfiles feature of the Persistent Storage.

  2. In the Welcome Screen, unlock the Persistent Storage.

  3. In Tails, choose Places ▸ Dotfiles.

  4. Create the folder /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked/dotfiles/.config/keepassxc/.

  5. Copy the file /home/amnesia/.config/keepassxc/keepassxc.ini to /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked/dotfiles/.config/keepassxc/keepassxc.ini.

  6. Restart Tails before changing more settings.
