I currently use keePass, and use it on both my PC and my phone. I like it because I can keep a copy of my DB on my phone and export it through a few different means. But I can’t seem to find an option to actually sync my local DB against a remote one. I’ve thought about switching to BitWarden but from what I can see it uses a single DB with multiple connections. Is there a password manager that allows ultiple databases (one PC one Phone) with easy syncing between them - specifically from my phone? Or a way to setup keePass to allow syncing with a machine on my home network?

    I just use Keepass2Android. You can use any solution you’d like that is able to sync normal files and sync your database between your devices

      Was about to post this, this works well for me.

      In my case I’m storing the DB on my Google Drive for now, but Keepass2Android supports many different systems, including “generic” things like WebDAV, so really anything should work.

      While Keepass2Android is integrated with the syncing and will always check for conflicts (i.e. check for latest version before saving), the same isn’t necessarily true for the desktop client. But since I rarely edit from both devices at the same time, anything that syncs to the Desktop in a somewhat realtime fashion should work just fine.

      And for the few (long ago) cases where updates were overwritten, the “previous version” feature of Google Drive was god-sent! (And KeepassX can simply merge the old overwritten version into the current one and you’ll get the correct merge).

        I use the default desktop KeePass client (no Xs or whatever) and it always synced correctly and picked up abd merged changes.
