Use KeeForm to log into a secure website automatically



KeePass comes with rich features and powerful plug-ins and extensions. One of the extensions is KeeForm, which is a KeePass form filler utility. It can automate the login process when you double-click the URL field in KeePass. When you double-click the URL field in KeePass, the following steps are carried out automatically for you:
  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Open the login web page.
  3. Fill out the Username and Password field.
  4. Click the Submit button and log into the site.

I tested KeeForm by using both Yahoo! Mail normal login page and SSL login page, the login process was a breeze.

Note that KeeForm only works with Internet Explorer. Other browsers are not supported for technical reasons because only Internet Explorer supports a COM/DLL type interface.

KeeForm doesn't work on Vista with IE 7's "protected mode" turned on. To fix the problem, simply turn off the protected mode.



KeeForm is keylogger safe because you don't need to touch your keyboard at all.

How to install and use KeeForm It's really simple! Follow the following steps to download, install, and use KeeForm.

Step #1:
Download the latest version of KeeForm

Step #2:
Unzip the downloaded zip file.

Step #3:
Place the following command in KeePass.ini file after the [KeePass] tag. KeePass.ini is in the KeePass program directory.

KeeUrlOverride= cmd://"{APPDIR}\KeeForm.exe" "{URL}" "{USERNAME}" "{PASSWORD}" {ENTERFORM}

Add command in KeePass.ini

Step #4:
Copy the two files KeeForm.exe and KeeRun.exe from the unzipped directory and place them in the KeePass directory.

The KeePass directory should normally locate at C:\Program Files\KeePass Password Safe

Copy KeeForm.exe and KeeRun.ext

KeeForm.exe is used to log into a web page.

KeeRun.exe is used to log into a non-webpage application such as Yahoo messenger. My Anti-virus program insists that KeeRun.exe is a Worm.IM.Sohanad.c virus. This is a false flag.

Step #5:
Open KeePass and add a new password entry (for test only).

On KeePass menu bar across the top, click Edit -> Add Entry

Step #6:
When the Add Entry window is opened, follow the screenshot below to add the new entry. After done, click OK to create the new password entry.

Make sure you enter the following text in the URL field:

cmd://KeeForm http://www.geeksengine.com/tools/keeform-test.php {USERNAME} {PASSWORD} {CLICK}

Note: For some sites, if {USERNAME} {PASSWORD} {CLICK} does not work in the URL field, use {USERNAME} {PASSWORD} {ENTER} instead.

I placed this new password entry in my Internet group. You can place it anywhere you want in your KeePass.

Create KeePass entry for KeeForm

Step #7:
Point your mouse to the URL field of this new password entry and double click it.

Double click URL to use KeeForm

What happened? You have been automatically logged into the test login page. There is no need to open the login page manually. KeeForm opens the page for you, and fills out the username and password, and then click Submit button. All happens automatically.

KeeForm can also be used to log into standalone programs such as Yahoo Messenger. For detailed explanations, refer to the README file that comes with KeeForm download.
