I would love to have my passwords organised in folders.
I use this utility all the time, and the ability to
create a folder for a set of password entries would be
fantastic.

    Here's a though: what if the passwords themselves were
    stored in an XML doc where the usernames and passwords are
    the "leaves" of the tree and the directories would be the
    "branches" Perhaps something like this

    <safe>
    <branch id="Windows Passwords">
    <entry>
    <desc>Program X login</desc>
    <username>someone</username>
    <password>password</password>
    </entry>
    <entry>
    <desc>Remote server login</desc>
    <username>someone</username>
    <password>password</password>
    </entry>
    </branch>
    <branch id="Web Passwords">
    <branch id="Email Passwords">
    <entry>
    <desc>Hotmail</desc>
    <username>someone</username>
    <password>password</password>
    </entry>
    </branch>
    <branch id="News Passwords">
    <entry>
    <desc>NY Times</desc>
    <username>someone</username>
    <password>password</password>
    </entry>
    </branch>
    </branch>
    </safe>

    Granted, it's a quick and dirty design, but this would allow
    for nesting of branches to simulate a directory structure
    plus it can be easily exportible and transformed if necessary.

    Just my two cents: the GUI could show a "explorer-like" tree
    of folders, but with no right-pane for the leaves: all
    (folders and pwd entries) would be shown in the same tree,
    perhaps on a different font color and icon.

    Also, the tree should be free-form, allowing leaves (pwds)
    on the root or any other level, so users that like the
    current "simple" arrangement won't be bothered by the changes.

    Great tool, keep up the good work!

    I second the motion. Hierarchy is a Good Thing!

    YES! It is the feature I intended to request for if nobody has
    yet done so.

    A folder feature would also satisfy other requests, like:
    [ 782508 ] Add Categories to Password Entries

    I would love to have folders, to be able to store and
    classify other kinds of sensitive information, like software
    registration keys, various pseudonyms with corresponding
    e-mail addresses etc.

    In other words: folders would offer a very good potential
    for extending the (already excellent!) functionality of pwsafe !

    I highly agree with this one. When you have a large number
    of passwords (the reason for having a password organizer),
    it is very useful to be able to organize them into
    categories. I would move this feature up in priority. An
    example of an open source password organizer that lets you
    organize into categories is ZSafe
