Great program, easy to use and maintain. While upgrading is a small issue, by registering KeyPass's db extension, and accessing the whole thing via shortcuts and shares, all I have to do is install the program on each of my computers. Once installed everything has worked seamlessly through several upgrades.
Greate! Thank You!
Just awesome API. I use it allway, it s free and open you can use on cloud or USB , FTP etc. Just super
A tool like this is practically required for my work; looking at the hundreds of passwords I store with it I wonder how I ever got along without a PW manager. I've used several similar tools in the past and this is the best. Not because it has any one feature which is much better than the others but because it has many features which are a little better. Firstly, this is free and has no ads whatsoever which is enough to beat 95% of the competition. Second, contrary to what others have said, it couldn't be much easier. Ignore those who say differently because they are obviously missing a chromosome or two. I was up a running with this within minutes after I first installed it around 8 years or so ago and its only gotten easier to use since then. Third, you can trust this application which I would never do with a closed source application of this nature. Like with all applications, Fourth, the portable version is a real time saver when you need a little extra time the most because (if you store it on a non OS drive) you don't even need to install it again when you re-install your OS. As for cons: I wish the upgrade process was a little easier though. I guess I'm spoiled on apps which automatically grab updates and apply them without my intervention. I'm not sure if that applies to the installer version or not though. I also would like to see the ability to setup multiple auto type definitions for each entry for those times when the same account is used for multiple applications.
A great tool that is a one stop password shop. utilizing great Icons to depict device types is a great option.
