    • lastpass is browser based and therefore different security model Guest • Nov 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • It's better to use a password manager than not. By a mile. So use LastPass rather than nothing. But KeePass is prefereable because a) it stores your passwords locally rather than putting it into some US company's hands, b) LastPass doesn't encrypt domain names of your accounts, c) KeePass is open source.

    • Although it is not Open Source (and usually when you want an alternative to an OS software, you would naturally wish for another OS solution) you can just purchase the applications and you are done. No monthly fees (although 1Password does have a plan option) and has a local database (unless you wish to sync between multiple devices). I also think it is above KeePass due to the extensions, which improve your daily routine quite significantly. TVDNFeb 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • 1Password is proprietary (not open source) and might not encrypt your URLs (neither does LastPass). A more trustworthy choice is KeePass (or KeePassXC for Mac/Linux with browser integrations). Failing that, try BitWarden, which syncs just like 1Password, except that it's open source and does encrypt your URLs. Guest • Jun 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • Despite KeePassX lacks some fancy features of KeePass and its development is slower, it is native to Linux and have much better performance and bit better look there. Still there are problems about storing the database file in cloud, as KeePassX does not support such services nor plugins, which could help (so you depend on another software to do syncing).

    • Enpass isn't bad, but it's not fully open source. The database format locks you into the Enpass format, which other apps don't open. No two-factor authentication. Hard to see the advantage over KeePass, except perhaps if you only use Mac in which case the browser integration is smoother. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree

A Couple of Tips for Getting Started

about KeePass and Keefox · ·

Windows users, increase your security: In KeePass go to Tools > Options > Security > check "Enter master key on secure desktop". This helps to defeat keyloggers.

Use Keefox for integration with Firefox browser.
It finds the website fields correctly in 99% of instances, which is better than some commercial products like LastPass.

There are a couple of things to know to save you time when installing the plugin. In particular, if you've followed the instructions and it still doesn't open try this: Go go KeeFox > Options > KeePass tab > check "Remember above settings (e.g. when using KeePass portable).Hopefully that should sort it out.


best password manager for computer geeks

about KeePass · · 1 Helpful

KeePass is very useful password manager for people like us.
It is on the top of the list of its kind mainly with two reasons: 1) its completely free and 2) it's all the features a good password manager should have.
Great works!

Not only is it safe from leaks and hackers, but it is extremely handy for those of us who want to create complex passwords but then end up not remembering them.


Lacks Good Browser Plugin

about KeePass · ·

Keepass is a great program. However, the third-party browser plugins aren't as effective and easy to use as the commercial password managers.

No only for Windows and Linux

KeePass 2.x can be made to work on OS X with mono. I'd still recommend using KeePass 1.x on Windows and KeePassX on Linux and OS X over it if you care about cross-platform compatibility.


Good software on Windows, not so much on GNU/Linux.

about KeePass · ·

Great application for use on Windows, it does the job and is easy to use.
On GNU/Linux however, it can only be run with Mono and the paste- functionality doesn't always work the way it should + some of the characters in the edit entry form are mangled, hidden or replaced with white recangles.
I might try to use KeepassX but then i'd have to convert the password database (if at all possible).

All in all, i'd recommend it.


Really love it!!

about KeePass · Jun 2011 ·

Yeah, well, I wouldn't bother on a Mac with Keepass 2.14. It was a bear to install as it was clashing with CrossOver. Had to install Mono.

The end result? An ugly, barely usable application, where the keyboard is dysfunctional - CTRL + N, or Mac Command + N doesn't work and neither does a simple Tab move me from one field to another. Then I mistyped the password matching bit and it would till insist there was an error, even after I totally retyped both password fields with simple values to test. Not much use trying any further.

Currently using PasswordSafe, that's why I have CrossOver, but keyboard bindings are the Achilles heel of running Windows programs under OSX and KeePass is no better than PasswordSafe.

My requirements would be: Windows, OSX and Linux. PasswordSafe in Java would be nice, but it isn't maintained.

No offense to the programmer, this is great stuff... on Windows, not on Macs and likely not on Linux either.

KeePass 2 works on Linux through Mono. It used to be unstable, but it works pretty well now.
