KeePass Tusk is a free keePass Firefox addon to access passwords without KeePass application. You can now easily use the passwords stored in KeePass database without KeePass software. This addon uses the KDBX password database created by KeePass 2.x to import all the passwords and usernames. To import password database, you will have to keep the database file in any cloud storage service that it supports. It can fetch the database from Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, WebDav, etc. This KeePass client supports password search and autofill. And it automatically pulls the stored password based on the currently opened website.

If you want to use all your KeePass passwords in browser without using the KeePass desktop application then this addon will help you. And not only Firefox but it can be used in the same way in Google Chrome as well. The interface is very simple and you can copy passwords to clipboard or use autofill to fill them automatically in password fields. This addon focuses on security and that’s why it removes passwords stored on clipboard after 2 minutes by default. Also, after accessing passwords, it locks database again. Whenever you need to use it for the second time, you will have to specify the master password again.
