KeePass Password Safe is a program that protects your accounts and passwords. The application comes with a simple and uncluttered interface; this way, you get access to any function without difficulties.

The first thing you should do when first using the app is to create a database containing all your passwords. Then you need to set a master key which will protect you against any unwanted users. The program lets you choose among a master password, a key file, and a Windows user account.

The database is nicely structured into categories; this way you can organize your accounts and passwords the way you want. To create a new entry, you should follow a few steps. You need to enter the title, the user name, the password, the URL, and some notes. If you want to generate a strong password, you can use the tool’s password generator. The combination could be a character set, a pattern, or may respect a custom algorithm. Whether you have many entries for multiple password accounts, you can use the search function to find the one you need faster. Another useful function is the one that allows you to perform an auto-type action when you want to log in to a website.

In conclusion, this is a good program that offers a strong protection of your data. It helps you when you have lots of accounts and you can’t remember all of them.

OLLI_S Simply the best password manager (and I really tested many of them).
It is open source, can import data from many other tools and there are many plug-ins available.
It is also available for every OS (Windows, Linux, Mac) and also can be installed on many mobile devices.

Bill I use Windows now and I'm thinking of changing to a Mac. Is KeePass compatible with the Mac and can I use the same version I'm using now for Windows?

joshua.pettus Bill, Technically speaking the Windows pro 2.x version can run on OSX with the help of the mono framework. You launch the executable with the command "mono /folder/KeePass.exe" I find It runs under mono but its a little slow and crash prone. There are a few other OSX options on their site based on the same software, and will read the same database.
