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, 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.

    I have used this on Windows, Mac and Android for several years and have been totally satisfied with it. I use Dropbox to share the database between the separate devices. As a heavy computer user and software developer, there was no good way of remembering all those passwords until I found KeePass!

    (コンピュータ利用の影響から生じる社会的及び法的な課題に対応するために設立されたアメリカに本拠地を置く非営利団体)Electronic Frontier Foundation も「Kee-Pass」を推奨しています。 人気のある「Last-Pass」には日本語版があり、多機能で、使い方も平易ですが、クラウドの「保管庫」が、立て続けに Hacking の被害を受ける不祥事も発生するなど信頼性に影を落としています。 クラウドは、クラウドストレージサービスの「Dropbox」でもハッキングトラブルが絶えず、「クラウド」のセキュア度は不完全なことが判明しました。 しかも前述の「EFF」の 06/10/2015 会報によると 『米議会と FBI の特定のメンバーが、特別なアクセス権を企業に強制し、暗号化通信の Lock を解除するための「GOLDEN-KEES」を与えるための提案を推進しています』と根本的な危機を警告しています。 重要データのクラウド利用は危険です。 【 Last-Pass と Kee-Pass の考察】 どちらも「AES」と「Twofish」準拠の最高度のセキュリティー機能を有するパスワードマネージャーの決定版の双璧として世界的に評価されています。 「LastPass」は、セキュアに管理されたクラウドにデータが格納されるため、IT 接続が必須です。 「kee-pass」は、PC 内(や外付けの各種記録媒体)にデータが格納されます。 「LastPass」は、default で多言語化表記(ブラウザ使用言語に対応し、自動変換)が成されているうえ、便利機能が充実しています。ビギナーでも使い始めることができるほど分かり易く仕上がっており、万人向けです。 「kee-pass」は、作成したパスワードなどを(PC 内など)手元で管理する安心さとパスワード作成における(任意)設定可能な項目が Last-Pass より充実している事、豊富な “Plugins” などが優位点として、ユーザーや批評家から圧倒的な支持を受けています。しかし「英語/ドイツ語」表記のアイテムであり、多言語化処理が面倒な事と、機能や表現(意味)が解りづらいため、ビギナーには厄介気味ですが。 世評においても経験上からも「Kee-Pass」が、唯一無二の存在です。

    I had this tool for some time now and I am quite happy with it. Why it was marked on win 10 as malware?
