Where to download Safari browser extension


Recommended Posts

Hi Jeff,

 

After investigating this, it seems Apple have changed things yet again, and require us to re-compile the extension in a new format and submit for approval. This new compile process seems overly complicated compared to other browser vendors, and the last time we submitted a one line code change, Apple took 3 months to approve the change.

 

Because of this, we do not have an estimate for how long this will take, and recommend using Chrome in the short term.

Not at this stage yet sorry Jeff. Hopefully we can  start looking into it soon. We are sorry about this delay, but we've been very busy getting the Chrome and Firefox extensions working over the last month, and submitting the new Safari extension is a process we're currently not trained in.  

 

Hopefully we can make a start on this soon, and I'm not suite of this helps but as a work around, possibly you could load up Chrome on your Mac/s and use that as a temporary fix?

Hi Jeff,

 

We're currently working on it at the moment. The whole process has changed, and they require you to also make coding changes, so we're not exactly sure how long it's going to take.

 

Have you checked our the new Chrome extension, which you can use on OSX - it is far better that the Safari one we have?

Hi Jeff,

 

We've taken a look at the whole process that Apple recommended for us to convert our extension over.  What they made sound like an easy convert is actually a complete rewrite of our extension so it is an App on the desktop.  We've installed the LastPass app from the extensions store and can confirm that this doesn't even autofill anymore, without downloading a separate version directly from the LastPass servers.  

 

For the amount of work this will be and combining that with little interest in using the Safari extension, unfortunately we will not be looking into developing an App for this at this point in time.  We will be removing reference to the Safari extension in our next build of Passwordstate that we release.

 

When installing the LastPass app, it highly recommends installing their extension for Chrome, so users get a seamless and easy experience.  I'm hoping that this will be a good work around for you and your users too.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused, but we just can't justify developing a brand new app for this, at this stage.

 

Regards,

Support.

Thanks for the update.  That is disappointing.  We evaluated a lot of password managers (1Password, KeeperMSP, Password Boss, Bitwarden, Myki, to name a few) and all had Safari extensions/integration.  We landed on Passwordstate because we liked the feature set, and the fact that you had a Safari extension, because most of our users prefer Safari.  We were just about to deploy Passwordstate into production, but now will have to review.

We understand Jeff and it's very disappointing for us also.  We've invested a lot of money in Safari only for Apple to completely make our years of development redundant.  If we get more interest in the future we'll certainly consider this again.

 

Regards,

Support
