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, f-droid 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 tjoda
