I use Keepass2 to store my passwords and I was wondering is there any limit on how many passwords you can store in a KDBX file? I currently have over 68 passwords stored in my KDBX file/Keepass2.

I imagine that the limit is limited only by the amount of storage space available for the .kdbx file.  This is nothing other than an encrypted database after all, and those are, in theory, infinitely expandable.

 

Sixty-eight entries is a drop in the proverbial ocean.  You might want to ask in the discussion forums on the Keepass2Android site if you believe there is a hard limit for some reason.

hello
is some threshold for maximum size?
I used to have only a several passwords in database and it had only 50 Kb
but recently I put there hundreds of different passwords so now it has 800 kb and after I put there some more icons it has over 850 kb - in case that my database would have 1 or 2 Mb in future, could it be a problem?
I cannot find some information about this topic
Thanks in advance

800k is normal for a database with lots of entries.
KeePass doesn't really have a limit, but it needs to be able to load the file into memory to use it.
cheers, Paul


I have a 128kb .kdbx file and over 300 passwords for another point of reference. I think Paul's last sentence above about sums it up.

Thanks Animal.

 

Since I use Password Safe and its Android Clone PasswdSafe I wasn't motivated enough to do the digging you did.

 

I simply presume that anything that uses a database is constrained only by hardware considerations, be those memory or external storage.  In theory they could keep expanding indefinitely were these limits not a part of any computing platform.

You're welcome britechguy. I use KeePass2 and Keepass2Android so I was interested in finding out for my own edification.
