KeePass Password Safe is a free/open-source password safe or manager which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key-disk. So you only have to remember one single master password or insert the key-disk to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).
- The version information file (which the optional update check downloads to see if there exists a newer version) is now digitally signed (using RSA-4096 / SHA-512); furthermore, it is downloaded over HTTPS
- Added option 'Lock workspace when minimizing main window to tray'
- Added option 'Esc minimizes to tray instead of locking the workspace'
- Added Ctrl+Q shortcut for closing KeePass (as alternative to Alt+F4)
- Added UIFlags bit for disabling the 'Check for Updates' menu item
- The installers (regular and MSI) now create an empty 'Plugins' folder in the application directory, and the portable package now also contains such a folder
- Plugins: added support for digitally signed version information files
- Plugins are now loaded only directly from the application directory and from any subdirectory of the 'Plugins' folder in the application directory
- Improved startup performance (by filtering plugin candidates)
- When closing a database, KeePass now searches and deletes any temporary files that may have been created and forgotten by MSHTML when printing failed
- CHM help file: improved high DPI support
- Various code optimizations
- Minor other improvements

I have stored all my account details for every site I've ever signed up on, 270 in total, and couldn't live without KeePass to help me keep track all usernames and passes. It's a joy to log in to a site and have it to auto-type required info simply by using a hotkey.
User friendly and light-weight. It has a clever password generator tool, etc..
Bust most importantly it's SAFE, everything is locked with a master password.
You can export the entire database to make backups, or if you want to use on other devices.

My favorite and primary password manager. A quick way to migrate between keepass versions [and maintain customizations] is to copy over these 3 files into the new keepass directory:
If you also use the keeform plugin, also copy these 3 files over:

i've been using keepass for years. so to this end, i can't really complain about anything with the program, other than importing is tedious.

ron_marz: that's a stupid reason to rate the software low. There is also a portable version that doesn't require .Net, runs fomr USB key, etc... you are, therefore, stupid. Moving on.
Having used this for a number of years now:
It's fast, extremely effective, as stated can be portable, and flexible. Strong, solid 5 for this one.
as many noticed, v2 uses .NET and imo it's not a really good choice ... where is the portability and light weight download v1.x ... i'll test it more because it seems well developped but i'm disapointed about .NET choice ...
