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.
- 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).
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.

My review will be unpopular but it's based on real, long term and intensive usage of this software. I've been using LastPass extension for Firefox for years, with great satisfaction, and recently I wanted to try KeePass, convinced by the large user base and so many good reviews. So I installed Keepass on my dropbox and also installed Keefox estension to my Firefox portable. After trying it for about 4 months I am now able to say my opinion. KeePass fails to suggest the login credentials 8 times on 10. The most times I have to manually search for the current website in the database and pick up username and password manually. And each one separately, because even selecting the same website from the db (same URL of current website) Keepass does not fill in anything. Inserting / creating a new website also fails many times; Keepass does not recognize the new registration / login and I have to insert manually. There are other minor issues I faced, too. I switched back to LastPass, that is working like a charm on all website and all situations. Cant' really guess the reason of so many positive opinions abut KP.
