KeePass at a GlanceYou 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.

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.

Keepass has SO much potential to be a really great password manager and more, but unfortunately, it lacks a lot of key functions that are present on other managers. For instance, integrated two factor authentication, no integrated browser/mobile connection, and lacks a proper ability to store form and identity data (credit card info, for instance). The real advantages that Keepass has going for it is: open-source, good password generator, and good encryption. I really think that the developers should start charging for the service so we can get some of these key features going. I would gladly pay, as I think many would. What we need is a full open-source password manager that has the abilities of managers like 1password or LastPass.
I was looking forward to using KeePass Password Safe and thought it would be useful because I could add custom fields. However, if I select the fields for one group or file, I can't select a different set of fields for another group or file. That makes the program useless for my requirements. If the developer would build that functionality into the program, my rating would change to 5 stars.
