Tusk is no longer actively maintained.

  • Is it still safe? Yes. As far as the community is aware, Tusk's security model is still the same. You may continue using Tusk, and I will keep the third party integrations (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) active. Please contact me through my website to report security concerns.
  • Why is it unsuppored? Because I no longer prefer the keepass ecosystem. I believe version control and data sync should be a core feature of any password manager.
  • Any good alternatives? I've switched entirely to Password Store + BrowserPass and I'm happier now. If you want something more user friendly, I highly recommend Bitwarden. To remain with Keepass, try Kee or KeepassXC-Browser.
  • Could someone else take over? If you have a lot of time and are interested in taking over leadership of Tusk, please contact me through my website and tell me about yourself and what you'd like to do with Tuisk. It has over 25 thousand active users, and I'm sure they would all love to see the project live on.


A modern, clean keepass browser extension built with Vue.js and kdbxweb. Rebooted from perfectapi/CKP





User Guide

This section provides how-to instructions for various features of Tusk.

How it works: Implementation Details

This section provides in-depth information about how tusk works under the hood. We aim to provide better transparency and give users peace-of-mind. Tusk may not be perfect, but it's better than proprietary black-box applications that hide design flaws from the community.

Build Setup

Tusk requires: *

# install dependencies
yarn install

build static DLL resources (optional)

yarn build-dll

build for production with minification

yarn build

run the packer script targeted for 'chrome' and 'firefox' after build.

this step generates the zip archives submitted to Chrome/Firefox addon marketplaces.

yarn bundle

static reload with file watch for tests

yarn dev-tests

For detailed explanation on how things work, consult the docs for vue-loader.

Running tests

To run tests, first build them with

yarn build-tests
yarn watch-tests
then open
in a browser.

Browser Permissions

Tusk requires cross-origin permissions in order to inject credentials and query the storage backends on the user's behalf.

In chrome, these permissions requests are always prompted to the user upon first use.

Because of Firefox's implementation of

, it was necessary to request all permissions at install time to avoid code rot. A deeper explanation of the firefox permissions can be found on stackoverflow


Why is it called Tusk?!

I originally wanted to call it Elephant, as in An elephant never forgets. I tried this name on a couple of friends and they were unimpressed. I wanted to find a name that was more concise but keep the elephant imagery. Ergo, tusk.

What happened to CKPX?

This is it! CKPX has been rebranded as Tusk to mark its Firefox release. The C in CKPX stood for 'Chrome'.

Can I donate money?

I don't want your money. Take whatever you would have given me and find a local charity -- a food bank, a women's shelter or an animal shelter, for example. Enjoy your free software.

So how can I support Tusk?

If you ❤️ Tusk, please consider leaving a positive review on the Firefox Add-on store or the Chrome webstore - I'll be eternally grateful.
