Storing additional information in Kee Vault custom fields

Both Kee Vault 1 and 2 allow you to create custom fields to store additional data, such as a “memorable word”, credit card numbers, PINs, door access codes, etc.

Depending on your preference and the amount of information, you could instead choose to store it in the usual Password field but that might be more difficult to manage many years down the line.

To create a custom field

In Kee Vault 2:

  1. create or open the entry you want to add it to
  2. click on the + button in the bottom right
  3. choose to “add field”
  4. give it a name so you know what it is for in future
  5. then type in the information in the new field box
  6. Optionally, you can then set the field as “Protected” (like a password) using the “field menu” (3 dots next to the field).

In Kee Vault 1:

  1. click on the space next to the “more…” field name (or click on “more…” and then “Add new field”
  2. type the information into the new field box
  3. Optionally, toggle the eye icon to mark the field as “Protected” (like a password)
  4. click on the “New Field” field name that replaced “more…”
  5. give it a name so you know what it is for in future
  6. click somewhere else on the page to save both values to the entry (you’ll still need to save the entry when you’re done adding additional fields or making other changes, just like usual)

Using the fields

To get the information into a form field in another app or website (such as a checkout page asking for a credit card number) just copy the field value to the clipboard and then paste it into the form field.

Exact steps for copy/pasting vary a bit between different devices but it’s a standard feature in all phones, typically you can paste by long-pressing on the field you want to paste into.

To copy the value from a Kee Vault entry, the quickest way is to press on the “field menu” (3 dots next to the field) and click the “Copy” button.

We don’t offer any specialist support for these types of information since we are focussed on perfecting password management rather than the wider subject of all types of secret information. So we won’t do anything like offer to autofill a form field that looks like it might be expecting you to type a credit card number, for example.
