Database Manager - Google Drive

In Password Depot, you can open and save databases on Google Drive. To do so, please open the Database Manager (menu Database > Database Manager) and click on the tab Google Drive. The following options are now available:

  • Sign in: Directs you to the Google Drive login website.
  • Sign out: Allows you to log out from Google Drive.
  • Refresh: Refreshes the list of available databases saved on Google Drive.
  • New database: Enables you to create a new database on your Google Drive. A detailed description of this process is provided here.
  • Delete: Deletes a selected database from the list.
  • Open: Opens a database selected in the list. In case the desired file is not shown in the list, simply search your Google Drive for this database. Then select the database and click on Open.

If you save your databases on Google Drive, Password Depot uses the following default path:

\Password Depot\

WARNING: It is strongly recommended not to create this path manually. Instead, log in to Google Drive with Password Depot and allow the program to create the path, in case it does not yet exist. Once Password Depot has created the directory/folder, you can upload your existing password databases through Windows Explorer or your browser.

NOTE: Whenever you deposit your databases on a cloud service, your confidential data always "touch" the data medium of the cloud service in AES 256-bit encrypted format - never unencrypted. Your databases are always and only decrypted locally.
