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).

    Any database can get corrupted, so make back-up copies of the KDB file regularly and you are safe. KeePass is perfect for me since I don't trust the cloud services.

    Had to stop using it although I liked it ... database sometimes gets corrupted and then I can't access it with password ... suppose that's a problem with these types of applications. Guess I'll have to depend on the cloud i.e. LastPass

    edit: I might make a copy in case it gets corrupted again. I found a copy and was able to get into an older database but, of course, lost quite a few entries.

    Best of its class.
    Avoid the version 2 like the plague. Slower and without extra functionality.
    In fact, .NET should be forbidden. Some exceptions (paint.net one of them), products compiled in .NET are pathetic.
    This version is the one to choose.

    Couple of reasons why the db size grows.
    1. You store attachments with entries.
    2. You must not have cleared the backup folder.

    1. Please buy a USB drive to store your backups. Storing on GOOGLE is not a safe place. Your privacy is not guaranteed.

    2. Empty the backup category in Keepass.

    This is a great program which shows some very nice promise, however, there are a few things that make this a little tedious to use.

    A. No ability to use the windows context menu key (WIN KEY) to bring up the right click context menu on various entries.

    B. No way to drag/drop categories that have subcategories in them (I.E., you make a category (Finances) with a subcategory of (Credit Cards) that has entries in it, you cant drag/drop the whole MAIN category to another folder, you have to move the subcategories by themselves AFTER you create the new main category again.

    C. No way to assign a DEFAULT ICON for new entries in a specific group.

    Like I said, this program shows promise, and for what it does now, it does well, but I cant rate it a 5 just yet. Hopefully soon.

    For a more detailed review of keepass, see this URL for a review I did for donationcoder.com as well as a screencast I just posted for it demonstrating its functionality.

    It's good, but it doesn't have the ability to create timed backups (say, every 5 minutes). Should your computer happen to reset, or you shutdown without explicitly saving first, you might end up losing some passwords you've inputted... Having an autosave feature is pretty simple, it's disapointing this product still doesn't have one.

    I'm aware you can automatically save on locking, but as it is just me using this computer, I don't need the hassle of locking KeePass all the time.

    In the previous version , the db got corrupted or something, & I couldn't open it & lost all the data entries. Luckily I still had my roboform data. In this version it still won't open up a url & now it won't even autofill. On top of that after I locked the db it would not reopen. paper & pencil is more secure than this.
    To say that this & roboform are no comparison is an understatement. They are both designed to do EXACTLY the same thing. roboform works 10x better though

    KeePass is the best PASSWORD MANAGER that I have used. There may be other programs that are available (for a cost) that also manage passwords as a side task to other things.

    For utility and simplicity this is the best. It is super small. It can be run from a USB drive and does not have to be "Installed" on a windows PC in order to be used. I keep it and all of my passwords on my keychain so I have the info anywhere I go. To top it all off... it is FREE.

    It may be 'better' but RoboForm isn't really compareable since it doesn't have the same goals and isn't free. Yes, you can download a free version, but it is limited to 10 passcards which is likely insufficient even for grandma. I have 136 at the moment and about 50 in KeePass, they serve different uses for me, so I use both programs.

    KeePass does exactly what it's supposed to do--stores all your passwords and sensitive information securely and in an easily accessible place.

    It allows for groups and sub-grouping of passwords, which is great if you tend to have a lot of different passwords for sites, shells, IMs, bank logins and whatnot.

    Finally, a version that works well enough for me to dump Password Agent. Bye-bye shareware.

    It's ironic, but lately it seems to me that many freeware/open-source developers care more and work harder than their shareware counterparts, and that shareware is getting much more expensive at the same time. (I'm speaking generally here.)

    This is why I've dumped BestCrypt for TrueCrypt; PocoMail for Thunderbird, Opera for Firefox, PGP for GnuPG/GPGshell, and now Password Agent for KeePass Password safe. And it's why I now take some of the money I would have spent on shareware upgrades, and donate it to the freeware authors instead. (By the way, click here to donate to the worthy KeePass project!)

    Now, who was it who accused me of being anti-freeware?

    In any case, KeePass Password Safe and TrueCrypt would seem to make for a very good combination.

However, there are two things that are preventing me from switching over: there needs to be more options for converting from other programs (ie. eWallet) and an ability to customize the names of column headers.

    Reviewing 0.99c (May 14, 2005)

    05/05/14 - 0.99c
    - Added new secure edit controls (if enabled, no password edit control spies can read out the text of the control; the password isn't even visible in the process memory of KeePass)


    I tested this, and it seems to work as designed. This finally quells my complaints (and those of others) regarding sensitive information being stored in memory.

    I do still find many things about the interface and general operation quite clunky, and sometimes downright inconvenient. For example:

    * Ctrl+F opens a search dialog sometimes, and other times does not--depending on what part of the main window has focus.

    * There is no accelerator key to jump to the toolbar's "quick search" text box. And once you're there, you have no easy way to jump to the entries below. (I do not consider hitting Tab more than once "easy", given how often I do this. I like the way Password Agent lets you simply press Enter one time.)

    * KeePass Password Safe has no capability to send IDs and passwords to the window with focus; rather, it forces you to enter title bar search strings in the Notes field (or use the default, which is *title*). This is ideal sometimes, but not always, since (1) It's inconvenient to set up; (2) It doesn't work with simple server authentication, and (3) Of course, web site titles can change at any time.

    * There seems to be no hotkey to send just the password--you either send the preconfigured auto-type stuff, or you send nothing. Password Agent has one hotkey to perform whatever auto-type function is configured, and another hotkey to auto-type just the password. This is very convenient with sites that store your user ID after the first visit.

    * Unless you have one all-encompassing group, with all of your entries in it, there is no way to view all entries at once. Even if you create a "Root" group, and make other groups a subgroup of that, selecting "Root" will not show the entries in the subgroups.

    * KeePass Password Safe will not save the database automatically, except when closed. Windows being what it is, I'd really like to see it save the database after every change, or on a timed interval.

    * There is no built-in backup function, either automatic or manual.

    Hello,

    good free programm. I think since 9/11 it is a good idea not to produce perfect encryption software. Also some hardware stores key strokes (typically such with a tab between). Keep in mind that also the swap file always contains such things like passwords.

    But I trust in government. They protect us. I love it!

    I still use password agent. Storing passwords in clear text is unforgivable.

    definitely an awesome program! i don't have a lot of experience with this particular type (password managers) but this does everything i want and more.

    1 POINT OF CONCERN:
    - the 'plaintext' bug that keeps coming up in reviews and has yet to be fixed... I would hate to see this go 1.0 with such a glaring bug that has been brought to the developer's attention numerous times still existing.
    Please fix it!!!
    Otherwise, 5 stars for sure!

    What does price have to do with security? I agree that often times, you get only what you pay for, but also a lot of times, you don't.

    KeePass is open source, and open-source security products are generally preferable to closed-source security products. But open source isn't magic pixie dust. I haven't reviewed the code for KeePass, so I have no reason to trust it any more than I do anything else. I'll maintain this position until either I review it personally (ain't gonna happen), or until a reputable party like Bruce Schneier reviews it (also ain't gonna happen).

    Want to know something ironic, given the post by rijp below? (Note: The post I was originally referring to was subsequently deleted.) I found a bug in RoboForm not too long ago, in which the master password was stored in plaintext in memory--where it could easily be written to disk, or grabbed by malware. (Password Agent had the same bug, at the same time, coincidentally.) When I reported these bugs, the author of Password Agent fixed it immediately, but the RoboForm people initially told me "big deal".

    They eventually claimed to fix the bug, but by then, I had dumped their product... And their lousy attitude.

    Incidentally, judging only by the release notes for this version of KeePass, the security hole I mentioned below still exists. It's not a very major issue, though, and I still trust KeePass nearly as much as anything else. Overall, it is very well designed, and superior to even Password Agent in several respects.

    [P.S. Daze, I hope you weren't referring to me with your comment.]

    Why do people always post comments and advertise another application. It is blatently obvious the previous poster works for the product he is trying to promote. He mentions the name in EVERY paragraph and forces himself to say it.

    Sad.

    Reviewing 0.98b (Mar 5, 2005)

    Nice, great feature set and design, but it still retains plaintext user IDs and even passwords in memory under some circumstances, whereas Password Agent does not.

    Having sensitive information in memory, in plaintext, makes it possible for it to be written to the page file or hibernation file, where it may reside indefinitely. It may even be (potentially) obtained remotely by way of a remote-access trojan.

    Sorry, I'm not talking about KeePass using the clipboard; I'm talking about simply having the "Add entry" or "Edit entry" dialog open, and KeePass retaining sensitive information in its own memory, in plain view. Test it with WinHex, and see for yourself. (If you can't duplicate it, you aren't doing it right.)

    Note: I did see the "In-memory passwords protection" blurb on the home page, but that's not accurate information. I proved it by looking at the KeePass process memory with my own eyes, not just by taking the author's word for it. Passwords do exist, in plaintext, under at least some circumstances while KeePass is running.

    Sorry, but Password Agent still seems more secure to me. Don't ever trust a security application at face value. Don't ever trust it blindly, even if it's open source. It took me seconds to find this security hole, which may not be critical, but certainly isn't "nothing".

    So, what was that other reviewer saying about being a "security conscious user"?

    An excellent password manager ( I have tried plenty of them )

    clean interface, password generators, and an option to copy passwords to the clipboard for a set amount of time (eg: 10 seconds).

    Best of all, it is completley free with no limitations!

    If you are looking for a password manager, then this is the one to download.

    This is an awesome product. As a security conscious user, I downloaded the source, checked it and then compiled my own builds.

    It has all the features I'm looking + it's free.

    KeePass is definately getting to the point where I'd consider switching from eWallet. There are two related, major features that I find lacking from .98a. First, KeePass does not save column views independently for each category. Secondly, it does not allow me to create new columns for data which doesn't fall under the pre-created ones.

    Once/if these two features are implemented I'll switch over. At which point, I hope the author also includes a nice import utility to convert an eWallet database. ;)

    Nice piece of software. Have been using PINs for quite a while, Oubliette before that, and KeePass seems to combine all the key elements required in this type of software. Still in beta but interface is very slick/presentable and the options for securing the data, ie, strong passwords, user definable locking, etc., are there. Recommended.

    A verry nice program. And I like when it generates a password, you can choose how many good the password is.. for instance- with characters like ╥yf©
    and how when it is generating the password you can move your mouse around, and it generates it by your mouse movements. Just a verry cool, and save program, the best of it's kind.

    ONE MORE THING, and possibly the BEST thing about it. For those of you that havn't tried it, let me explain... KeePass is goin to be used to store ALL, or ALL the PASSWORDS that you WANT IN IT... ok
    Now, The actual program is guarded by a password right? WELL, if you have a thumb drive (those little hard drives about the size of your thumb) you can set it so IT is your KEY TO THE PROGRAM. When you bring up KeePass, you pick your data base, and when it asks for the password, you plug your THUMB DRIVE in... and that is it. A key that you can take with you. If you do that, make a backup copy on floppy and put it in a locked box, or under the rug or something. It is VERRY COOL. You can also store the master password on a floppy (that is what I do), or on a CD-R, of just type it in if you know what it is. But if you set the encription high enough, I doubt you will be able to type the password in.

    I think this is the best program of its kind. The developer listens to requests (at least my request seems to be the reason for v0.96b), which is great. If this program doesn't do want you want, maybe you could look at the freeware/shareware program AI Roboform at www.roboform.com, which also has some nice features and is quite different from this prorgram.
    If you are just looking for a password safe, look no further, this is creme-de-la-creme

    Review update: I've finished converting (manually) my PasswordSafe DB to KeePass. I'm glad I made the switch. KeePass is in the category of freeware that is (very?) superior to the comparable shareware/commercial products.

    Unbelivable how nice this freeware is! I used PasswordSafe since 2 years and was missing all the features KeePass gives me now. Explorer like treeview, lots of import and export options,
    password quality analysis and more. A really great tool with commercial quality. Too bad for the password safe team, but since the last year the development goes to the wrong direction... And now KeePass is there.

    Excellent quality, Open Source, Smart design. I've also tried several pwd managers. Was settled on the freeware version of Bagusoft PwdSafe last year. KeePass offers almost the same functionnalities, with better GUI. I'll go for it because it is Open Source. Even if I need to retype all my pwd list.
