Keepass2Android keeps uninstalling itself!!!!

Nov 5, 2013 at 10:56 AM
Since the last realease keepass2Android keeps disappearing off my Galaxy Note and I am having to reinstall it every day. Is anyone else experiencing this or have any idea what it might be?

Hi,
do you have any special apps installed on your device which might uninstall KP2A? Because I'm sure KP2A won't "uninstall itself".

Have you tried to install one of the older releases from https://keepass2android.codeplex.com/releases/view/114086?

Nothing Im aware of except possibly Kaspersky but that hasnt reported issues. If it disappears again tomorrow, I'll try one of the older versions as you suggest.

I have now reverted to 0.8.6 and initial indications are that the problem has gone away.

No I don’t think so. The problem happened consistently every day with the new version of Keepass2android, but not at all with the old one. It’s not installed on the memory card & I haven’t seen the icon change. Also when I go to Google play to re-install it doesn’t detect the app as present (it wouldn’t give me the install button if it did).

Hope that’s helpful. If I can assist with any other diagnostics let me know.

I saw that in version 0.9 the "installLocation" field in the manifest changed from "auto" to "preferExternal". Honestly, I don't know why this happened. I'll revert this in the next version so hopefully the problem disappears then.

this "fix" (I hope it's a fix :-)) is included in https://keepass2android.codeplex.com/releases/view/114765. Could you please test if the behaviour disappears now?

Thanks for the update. Sorry, only just got round to trying it today. I have installed it and powered off & on again. It’s still there so looking good, although it was overnight it was vanishing so I should have a definitive answer in the morning.

I have what appears to be exactly the same problem as msitekkie. I will also try the fix and report back.

The "fixed" version survived a reboot and is still there overnight so it appears to have solved the problem for me.

It has worked for me too. Good work.

The problem happens to me too. I downloaded 0.9.2a and will test it too. Thank you!

Strangely I’m now getting the same problem with the London Underground Tube Map app (Visual IT).

I guess that's for another forum but I have the same app installed (the free version) and I don't have this problem. I am using the latest version available to me on the Play Store, which is 2.1.8.
