    • 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

    • KeeWeb is KeePass-compatible & open source. It has most of the most important functions, although it is less well-established and lacks plugin support to extend its functionality and offer browser integration. On the other hand, it works natively on Mac, which KeePass does not. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree

    • 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

    • Genius invention. Doesn't store your passwords anywhere; it generates them everytime you put in the same Master password and username/website domain. Therefore, your password database can't be hacked - it doesn't exist. However, it's harder to change passwords for accounts because you have to use the iteration feature. Test it to see if it suits your needs. Thumbs up for open source also. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree

KeePass Comments

A Couple of Tips for Getting Started

Positive Comment by JohnFastman
about KeePass and Keefox Jan 2017

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.

about KeePass Dec 2016

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!

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

about KeePass and KeePassX Mar 2013

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.

Positive Comment by BjornR
about KeePass Jan 2013

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.

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.

Comment by dunxd
about KeePass Jun 2011

Very nice, but they really need to sort out the mess between 1.x and 2.x - they forked it internally but used version numbers to indicate the fork. Both forks are still being developed as far as I can tell. Database incompatibility between the two is a pain. KeypassX for *Nix only opens 1.x databases.
