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.

Features

  • Strong security (AES encryption, SHA-256 hash, protection against dictionary and guessing attacks, in-memory protection, ...).
  • Portable (no installation required), available for many platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, smart devices/phones, ...).
  • Efficient and flexible organization (entry groups, tags, time fields, file attachments, ...).
  • Various data transfer methods (clipboard, drag and drop, auto-type, plugins can provide integration with other applications, ...).
  • Powerful password generator (generation based on character sets and patterns, with many options).
  • Extensible (plugin architecture) and multi-language (more than 40 languages are available).

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.

  • Does the job when you need to maintain hundreds of auths in rotation.

  • Excellent tool

  • The best password manager application.

  • I've been a long time user of KeePass. It is simple, reliable and fast. Usually I open the program and with the cursor already placed in the search field, type a few characters to quickly find what I need amidst hundreds of entries. I also use this as a simple database for home equipment maintenance. I create entries for the lawn tractor and keep data on normal use parts to save time when maintenance is needed. I enjoy that you need not have this in the cloud. I want it centralized on a home server, where I can get to the database from any machine I own. One last thought - I could probably create a functional application myself, but this guy, Dominick Reichl, provides us a very good product at no cost. I periodically send him some funds through PayPal. Michael
