Where would you recommend me to store the Keepass-file?

dear friends, hello dear experts in this community.


Where would you recommend me to store the Keepass-file? This questions keeps to be a very important question to me. Well - for most of the use-cases usually i have all my personal documents in my cloud account.

The pro: i can access it from everywhere in the world. With any device.

But besides that i am not so sure if this is safe. Especially if it comes to such things like keepass: Some friends mentioned that it is not so safe:

Question; would it be safe to use the cloud for the keepass-file? Can i secure it even further, by adding another (extra) layer of security by encrypting the file.

the generalized question is this: How safe is it to store the keepass-file in the (wrong place) like in the cloud? What risks do I need to know about?

What can I do with the KeePass password file, there are several arguments to decide where to store it.
if the passwords are really, really important to someone, one should make the decision based on:

- the risk of the file being hacked - what can we do if we consider to get hacked
- what if someone may compromise the file
- is it preferable that the DB file not get in the wild,
- there may be more and other risks - which one do you take into consideration"?

What should i do - what can be done with the passwd.

can I secure it even further, by adding another extra layer of security by encrypting the file i am going to store in cloud storage online.


look forward to hear from you

I use a strong master password on the file. I make the local permissions limited to my account -- no access to group or other accounts. I transfer the file, when needed, via a local server and I don't leave a copy on the local server. A USB drive would work as well, perhaps better, depending on your usage.

I don't keep the app or data on my phone.

I used to use LastPass but I dropped that not for security concerns but for business model concerns. I anticipated loss of free service at some future point.
