Setup OTP data / Change OTP data

Use the entry's context menu to setup/change OTP data.

In the setup form, you can drag&drop the QR code image onto the QR picture in the setup form and have KeePassOTP parse it or you can enter the OTP secret manually (sometimes referred to as a seed) and you're ready to go.

In addition, you can click the screen capture button and KeePassOTP will search for an OTP QR code anywhere on the screen.

Got a string like this one?


Paste the entire string, KeePassOTP can process this otpauth-format as well.

As almost all sites require you to enter an OTP as part of the activation process, both current and next OTP are displayed here as well.

There are multiple convenient ways to use the one time passwords.

  • Copy OTP
    • Using the context menu of the entry
    • Doubleclicking the OTP displayed in the optional KPOTP column
    • Using KeePass' tray icon
  • Auto-Type
    • Using the context menu of the entry - Show additional auto-type menu commands needs to be active
    • Using a configurable placeholder - default placeholder: {KPOTP}
    • Using a configurable hotkey working inside and outside KeePass
    • Using KeePass' tray icon

Two factor authentication / Internet access

KeePassOTP can use the OTP column to highlight entries where you can set up two-factor authentication. If you doubleclick this hint, KeePassOTP will open the corresponding website to setup two-factor authentication.

For that purpose, KeePassOTP will download a list of sites supporting two factor authentication during KeePass start from
This list is then compared it with all URLs defined in the database.
Neither your URLs nor any other information from your database will be sent.

You can toggle this feature in KeePassOTP's options.


KeePassOTP is provided with English language built-in and allows usage of translation files. These translation files need to be placed in a folder called Translations inside your plugin folder. If a text is missing in the translation file, it is backfilled with English text. You're welcome to add additional translation files by creating a pull request as described in the wiki.

Naming convention for translation files: <plugin name>.<language identifier>.language.xml


The language identifier in the filename must match the language identifier inside the KeePass language that you can select using View -> Change language... This identifier is shown there as well, if you have EarlyUpdateCheck installed.
