Editor's Review

KeePass is a portable password manager for PC (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X), with ports available for Android, iPhone, iPad, and more. Let’s face it, most of us use the same password over and over to avoid password management but this practice is highly risky. It means if someone gains or cracks your password, they could log into any of your accounts, stealing data and jeopardizing your security. Having a separate, lengthy, and random password for every site is considered the best way to secure data. KeePass keeps every username and password pair in an encrypted database, protected by a single master password or key (the only one you have to remember). And it doesn’t store your database in the cloud unless you upload it there.

KeePass at a Glance

You can easily download KeePass for Windows and you can port it on a USB stick for most other operating systems. The interface is as busy as it is robust. For example, KeePass supports password groups for sorting passwords. You can drag and drop passwords into most windows or use a hot key to type your login information into windows automatically. You can also quick copy user names and passwords to the clipboard with a double-click on a field in the password list. And KeePass can import data from a variety of formats like CSV, while the password list can be exported to formats such as TXT, HTML, XML, and CSV.

Product Details

Here is a detailed breakdown of KeePass’s features:

  • Strong security—KeePass uses AES encryption to encrypt its password databases, SHA-256 password hash, protection against dictionary and guessing attacks, in-memory protection, and more.
  • Portable—KeePass is portable, carry it on a USB stick and run it or directly install it on Windows if you prefer desktop access.
  • Easy Database Transfer—A password database, containing a single file, is easy to transfer between computers.
  • Multiple user keys—Use a master password to decrypt the complete database or carry a key file with you.
  • Powerful password generator—KeePass generates passwords based on character sets and patterns, with many options.
  • Extensible—KeePass provides plugin architecture for advanced features and supports over 40 languages.

Pros

Cons

KeePass has a powerful password generator and is available with multi-factor authentication, and it can handle non-standard login sequences. Plugins provide advanced features. KeePass takes a while to warm up to, with its feature-filled interface that might confuse some beginners, but a help center is available to assist you as you find your way around.

Description

KeePass is a free, open source, lightweight, and easy-to-use password manager for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Android mobile devices. With so many passwords to remember and the need to vary passwords to protect your valuable data, it’s nice to have KeePass to manage your passwords in a secure way. KeePass puts all your passwords in a highly encrypted database and locks them with one master key or a key file. As a result, you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. And the databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known, AES and Twofish. See our features page for details.

    Best password-manager on the market. And the software is open-source, no questions asked, the best application in the group.

    This is one of the most useful apps ever. I use KeePass on Windows, Linux and also on Android together with cloud synchronization and the KeeFox plug-in for firefox.

    Only problems I have is when using a remote password repository (so I can have one pw file accessed by several computers). If the network fails or the file is moved recovery of the setup is a bit clumsy. The search needs a invoke/close button.

    Without a doubt the most advanced state-of-the-art password manager. Anything you can think of or not think of this small-footprint application can do: - fully portable - small-footprint in size space and memory - password generator with customizations - ability to open programs with integrated cmd shell - match login data by URL field, title - regex matching - secure database for storing not only login data but also other sensitive information
