I see Lockbox has been discontinued.

Anyone got any further information?

Do I need to look for something else?

I checked it not long ago, and yes, it is discontinued.

Always works well for me.

Do you know the reason why it was discontinued?

I've made inquiries. There are no plans to replace it.

It's very sad. I like having an app that is entirely local so that my passwords are not in the cloud. It was very useful.

I'm now running KeePass in tandem with Lockbox, gradually transferring entries across. It is entirely local and not dissimilar in its capabilities.

KeePass looks interesting. Have you got to manually add each item?

At present Lockbox will work for sometime to come.

I haven't seen a way of just transferring the database, and that is why I'm running them in tandem, and transferring entries as I use those entries. Because Lockbox copies entries just by clicking on them, it is very quick copying and pasting the entries across.

A number of my entries in Lockbox needed changing (e.g. sites now wanting longer passwords now than when I set them up), and others have become redundant (sites closed or business ceased), and so gradual transfer is fine for me.

My reason for gradually switching over is that I didn't want to review and update my numerous Lockbox entries only to find at a later date that I had to transfer them to new software. I am therefore combining the review and transfer of entries.
