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, consisting of 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 Password Safe is a free, open source, lightweight, and easy-to-use password manager for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, with ports for Android, iPhone/iPad and other 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.

    After I had 3 pages with passwords, I tried some database. Important for me are 2 things : Easy handling, simple import. Import in text form is used since about 1990 and simple to do. Easy handling, I just started, if necessary I read the info and that worked great. Finding some entry is also wonderfull, typing the name and there you go. The best thing is you can use it portable. I use the portable version on my computers. I can now just copy the new version and the base is not touched. In the mean time I learned this database is also practical in storing technical computer info, IP numbers . one of the very nice things is the TAN. Since I get those tans on paper, I scan them and then copy and past them in the base. Works almost perfect (You must control!). The copy function is also very good. I tried some other bases also commercial but was not comvinced. I want my passwords under my control and that is important. Your team has done a very good job. I'm using my computers since 1980, I did some programming and your programm is top ten. Also the frequent updates gives me a lot of confidence in your work.
