    To Рубэн Шторм: The Android app works extremely well on Chromebooks. The only problem is that you can't drag the app window from the Chromebook display to the display of a connected monitor. This annoying app behavior may be a security feature. Or you may prefer to see it as a bug.

    Anonymous: maybe. It's up to you if you want to try Dropbox. If you can't get Dropbox to work, that will confirm that you're doing something else incorrectly. Sadly, the developer of SafeInCloud seems to have a strong bias against Chrome OS. Dropbox works perfectly every time, though probably by just by luck. It certainly didn't involve any special effort by the developer.

    Joe, SafeInCloud does work on any Chromebook. It has worked ever since the original release of Play Store on Chrome OS. I know, because my Asus C100PA was one of the original three devices to receive Play Store. And I also use it on my Acer Chromebook Spin 13.

    Make absolutely sure that your Dropbox Android app is installed and that you have logged in to access your Dropbox account before you try to do anything with SafeInCloud. Then, SafeInCloud will access your Dropbox account when you run the SafeInCloud Android app and select Dropbox as the location of the password database. :-)

    There is only one thing that doesn't work on Chromebooks, and I have repeatedly asked the developer to fix it, and he refuses: When you drag the SafeInCloud app window from the built-in display to the extended display (on an attached monitor), the SafeInCloud app window turns black and stays black. :-(

    The Safe In Cloud Android app DOES work on Chromebooks. I've been using it on my Asus Flip C100PA since late 2016. But you must first install the Dropbox Android app. Then, when you start Safe In Cloud, it will link to the account in which you have the password database.

    HOUSTON, I HAVE THE SOLUTION -- found in the SafeInCloud Knowledge Base:

    https://safeincloud.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/465279-how-to-configure-dropbox-cloud-sync

    This solution enables the SafeInCloud Android app to connect to a DropBox database if the Chromebook is running the Chrome OS developer channel, ***AND*** it is one of the Chromebooks that has support for Google Play store. (Asus Flip; Acer R 11; Google Pixel, as of this posting.) It simply requires you to first run DropBox for Android before running SafeInCloud.

    Enabling Safe In Cloud usage on Chrome OS devices probably means either (1) porting the Android or Windows app to Chrome OS or (2) building the Website equivalent. The latter option is much better suited to Chrome OS but would also mean no offline Website access. Surely anyone smart enough to create Safe In Cloud can adapt its business model and pricing structure to retain the loyalty of the rapidly growing crowd whose primary device uses Chrome OS!

    Kaal Purush,

    The Android version of Safe In Cloud has worked ever since day one that Play Store was first implemented on Chromebooks. ***It simply requires you to first run DropBox for Android before running SafeInCloud.*** (I must admit that I don't know what happens when you use something other than DropBox.) I would much prefer a Web app or PWA version of Safe In Cloud, but its author obviously will forever lack that level of skill and/or enlightenment.

    Your request for a Chromebook plugin doesn't make sense at all. Chrome OS uses the Chrome browser. Chrome browser doesn't use plugins or Android. Chrome browser does use extensions that you can add from the Chrome Web Store. But Chrome browser extensions have absolutely nothing to do with Android. You can find the "SafeInCloud Password Manager" in the Chrome Web Store. All that it's supposed to do is enable pasting passwords. I tried it once; I don't use it.

    HBK008 describes a workaround that I've tested and confirmed. However I didn't have to install ARC in my situation because my Asus Chromebook Flip is running the Chrome OS developer channel. (The Android container runs ARC automatically, though the user can't infer this without opening the task manager window.) I can't say that I'm at all happy about having to migrate the SafeInCloud database from DropBox to OneDrive, but it's better than waiting around indefinitely for the unresponsive app developer to fix its Chrome OS connection to other Cloud storage services.

    "Chrome packaged apps" run as native apps instead of from a Web server, if that's the issue.

    https://developer.chrome.com/apps/about_apps

    "Instead of writing and maintaining separate applications for Windows, OS X and Linux, you can write a single application that runs anywhere Chrome runs." This includes Windows, Linux, OS X, and of course Chrome OS. "Using Chrome Apps for Mobile (MCA), you can deploy your applications to mobile and target hardware features only available on Android and IOS platforms."

    I'd personally be very willing to pay for this type of Safe In Cloud app at the Chrome Web Store. Even though Safe In Cloud is my personal preference, I suppose that a good option would be to switch to LastPass password manager to get a fully developed interface for the Chrome browser and OS.

    A Web app with a login that shows that you've paid is the most logical solution for Chrome OS. And it would work equally well with any OS. But SafeInCloud pricing would have to cover the cost of hosting a Web app on a server. A native Chrome OS app would also work. These are issues for the developer to address. Notably, the Android SafeInCloud app works perfectly under Chrome OS, but you just need to remember to install the Android DropBox app FIRST. The Android option is available to more and more Chromebook users as Google continues to enable Play Store for specific Chromebooks.
