I have been using MiniKeepass on my iphone for years. This morning it is no longer available. When i click on the icon, i get "Unable to Install "MiniKeePass" The App is no longer available in the App Store". Options are Keep or Delete.
I've backed up my iphone via iTunes and when i view the Apps on iTunes, there are no docs there. How do i get this data back?
All of my passwords are there but i can't find the backup file.
I also don't see this file in iCloud.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Same here. This breaks my security system, since I can no longer install Minikeepass on a new phone. How can I help?

Minikeepass is still in Keepasses list of iPhone clients.

In the same boat. So is the app gone forever, and therefore the information?

I also got a new phone yesterday, and minikeepass did not work. I deleted it, and tried to find it in the AppStore to re-download, and it was/is not there. I have an iPhone XR on iOS13.2.2.

Sadly seeing the same issue. I had to restore my phone this morning and now I can't access by password file. Any way to get the file off my iPhone without the app?

There is another open source, but actively developed, KeePass app called StrongBox. I switched to this and haven’t looked back. Worth a look as this project appears dead and has done for a number or years.

@GaryInMassena and @milesmcclane .... I backed up my iphone via iTunes. I then used the iPhone Backup Extractor I found when Googling this issue. I am now using Strongbox and have access to all of my passwords again. I tried Dropbox but i must not be using it properly because i see the file but it doesn't show me the passwords. Strongbox is so much easier.

I do have a backup from last night in iTunes. I'll give the extractor a try. Well worth the money if it works.

I had the same issue a few days a go when I upgraded phones. Sadly, my passwords are two important to me and I need to know that whatever application I am using does not access the Internet. I was having a few build issues with the current state of this project, so I looked under the network graph of the forks to see who had been making changes here: https://github.com/MiniKeePass/MiniKeePass/network

@jamisonbennet seemed to have been doing patch work that was consistent, so I went ahead and reviewed all the commits (I know, I can be paranoid with this kind of stuff) and then successfully compiled it myself. I am using that fork now which can be found at: https://github.com/jamisonbennett/MiniKeePass

I would be willing to publish the app to the AppStore if anybody is interested.

Thanks @rburhum, I also would like this but I remembered this was discussed #621 and there are problems because of licensing. Basically all the previous authors would have to sign over ownership before it can be published on the app store again. This is the main comment here...

@alunno-alzato there are a couple of forks already online in the App Store as paid apps and the original authors don’t seem to care and apparently can’t be contacted.

Can you name some of them?

@maluramichael Sorry, It's actually just one (KeePass Touch) I was sure there were several. It would be great if we could contact the original authors to get clarity on the situation, I really like MiniKeePass.

I have the same issue. So the only problem is wrong license? Any updates?

I mitigate this issue by use iBackup Viewer to extract KDBX file from MiniKeePass.app from iOS backup and import it to StrongBox

For anyone looking for an alternative app, there are quite a few options already.

There is my KeePassium: https://github.com/keepassium/KeePassium
There is AuthPass by @hpoul: https://github.com/authpass/authpass
There is MiKee by @maxep: https://github.com/MiKeePass/MiKee
All three are available under the GPL-3.0.

Also, I am maintaining an overview of KeePass apps for iOS. It cannot possibly be objective, but I try to keep it complete. There is a direct link for each app, so feel free to try them all and pick the one you like.

I ended up going with Strongbox as mentioned above, so far it's been great. Open source too:
