A Password Manager for Android with USB Keyboard emulation.

The idea behind Authorizer is, to use old smartphones as a hardware password manager only. To avoid manual typing of long and complex passwords everytime you need them, Authorizer pretends to be an USB keyboard (e.g. over an USB On-The-Go adapter). With a button press inside the App, it will automatically enters the password for you on your pc, laptop, tablet or main smartphone.

For USB keyboard emulation, Authorizer requires a special Android kernel/rom. More details/instructions are available under

A beta release is available over github or Google Play Store.

The project is searching for contributors ... to add features like two factor authentication (different standards), OpenPGP Smartcard emulation over NFC Host-based Card Emulation, and a lot of futher ideas.

If you are interested in this project, if you want to know more about it or need help for compiling an Android kernel including the android-keyboard-gadget patch, just contact tjado
