KeePass 2.43 – Password Manager

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 All Features:

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.

The application has portable edition: it can be carried on an USB stick and runs on Windows systems without being installed.

    If KeePass isn't quite right for you, check out "LastPass" which I've been using for about 2 weeks and like very much.

    The best password manager for storing passwords locally and encrypted. Works perfect with Firefox and the KeeFox add-on, and it can auto-fill login forms.
