KeePassXC Version 2.6.2 Error…
“ Error while reading the database: Invalid credentials were provided, please try again. If this reoccurs, then your database file may be corrupt. (HMAC mismatch)”
MacOS: Catalina Version 10.15.7
Browser: FireFox 84.0.1 (64-bit)
So, I normally use a copy and paste function on my Mac OpenOffice (SpreadSheets) to capture and use my passwords in KeePassXC…THIS IS WHAT IS CAUSING THE ABOVE ERROR…I TRIED A VERY SIMPLE PASSWORD, ‘12345’ AND THEN DID A COPY AND PASTE AND THE ABOVE ERROR HAPPENED, HOWEVER, WHEN I DID A NORMAL KEYBOARD ENTRY, “1-2-3-4-5”, THE ERROR DID NOT HAPPEN…I HAVE REPEATED THIS TEST (3) TIMES AND IT CONSISTENTLY FAILS THE COPY/PASTE ….
SO WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN…???
