Newest Release: KeePass 1.24

What is KeePass?
Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your website's FTP password, online passwords (like website member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem... A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, website, etc. Unimaginable.

KeePass is a free open source password 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 file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish). For more information, see the features page.

Is it really free?
Yes, KeePass is really free, and more than that: it is open source (OSI certified). You can have a look at its full source and check whether the encryption algorithms are implemented correctly.


enjoy the protection...

How does it compare with last pass?

With Last Pass you need nternet access, not so with KeePass as it is a desktop app which stores and encrypts your passord data - and witht hat being said, LastPass needs to be installed as a browser add-on/extension.
**nix on the internet access - I was wrong. Just tested LastPass in airplane mode and you can open the 'my vault' section OK**

LastPass can autofill most website logins, with Keepass there is a copy / paste move. Also with Keepass you can export your password list to an encrypted file. You can also

Me personally, if I'm going to use a desktop app to store passwords and such I prefer KeepassX. It can import/export to Keepass format and also LastPass supports import of KeepassX password database (native KeePass 1 (.kdb) databases)

I would use Keepass/KeepassX to store a local encrypted copy of passwords in case mozilla or chrome updates and makes the LastPass extension useless...They do that all the time. I feel like there is no forewarning of updates and when these browsers do update all the sudden your favorite extensions go *kapoot*
