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. A password database consists of only one file that can be transferred from one computer to another easily.
KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithm to encrypt its password databases.
Both of these ciphers are regarded as being very secure. AES e.g. became effective as a U.S. Federal government standard and is approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) for top secret information.
KeePass uses the common CSV export format of various passwords safes like Password Keeper and Password Agent. Exports from these programs can be easily imported to your KeePass databases. The password list can be exported to various formats like TXT, HTML, XML and CSV.
KeePass is portable: it can be carried on an USB stick and runs on Windows systems without being installed.
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (32-bit, 64-bit).
Changes in KeePass 2.32 Professional:
- The quick search box (in the toolbar of the main window) now supports searching using a regular expression; in order to indicate that the search text is a regular expression, enclose it in ‘
//‘; for example, performing a quick search for ‘
//Michael|Adam//‘ shows all entries containing ‘Michael’ or ‘Adam’.
- Added ‘Advanced’ tab in the ‘Open From URL’ dialog (easily extensible by plugins); added options: timeout, pre-authenticate, HTTP/HTTPS/WebDAV user agent and 100-Continue behavior, FTP passive mode.
- Added per-user Start Menu Internet Application detection.
- When selecting an entry in the main entry list, its parent group is now selected automatically in the group tree view.
- Auto-Type matching: added option ‘Expired entries can match’ (turned off by default, i.e. expired entries are ignored).
- Added option ‘Always show global auto-type entry selection dialog’ (to show the dialog even when no or one entry is found for the currently active target window; turned off by default).
- Added support for importing nPassword 18.104.22.168 NPW files.
- In triggers and KPScript, an import/export module can now be specified both using its display name and its format name.
- When running under .NET 4.5 or higher, secure connections (e.g. for WebDAV) now support TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 (in addition to SSL 3 and TLS 1.0).
- Added Mono workaround: when running on the Unity or Pantheon desktop, KeePass now does not try to instantiate a tray icon anymore; if you want a tray icon on Unity/Pantheon, use the application indicator plugin.
- Added workaround for Mono not implementing the property
SystemInformation.SmallIconSizefor Mac OS X systems.
- Added command line parameter ‘
-wa-disable:‘ for disabling specific Mono workarounds (IDs separated by commas).
- KPScript: if the value of a ‘
-ref-*:‘ parameter is enclosed in ‘
//‘, it is now treated as a regular expression, which must occur in the entry field for an entry to match.
- KPScript: .NET 4.0/4.5 is now preferred, if installed.
- KPScript: enhanced high DPI support.
- Auto-Type: improved compatibility with target windows that handle activation slowly and ignore any input until being ready (like Microsoft Edge).
- Auto-Type: improved sending of characters that are typically realized with the AltGr key.
- When editing a custom entry string, the value text box now has the initial focus.
- Improved image/icon shrinking.
- Improved icon recoloring on high DPI resolutions.
- Changed some ICO files such that higher resolution images are used.
- Changed some PNG files to workaround the image DPI scaling behavior on Windows XP.
- Improved new-line filtering in the main entry view.
- When trying to use the Windows user account as part of a composite master key fails, a more detailed error message is displayed now.
- The ‘About’ dialog now indicates whether the current build is a development snapshot.
- Changed code signing certificate.
- Upgraded installer.
- Various code optimizations.
- Minor other improvements.
- After an incomplete drag&drop operation over the group tree view, the previous group selection is now restored.
