      lopatoid It's free, open source, and, most important, more secure.

      jacekdobrzyniecki Unfortunately, KeePassXC lacks a very useful option to display custom columns in the main list (e.g. if you add a field like "email" or "displayname" to your password entries, you might want to be able to quickly see where have you used a given email.) This is a dealbreaker for me.

      Native client, more cross platform than mono/.NET based KeePass

      bird KeePassXC is pretty much the closest cloud-free solution I am going to get on macOS, until the original KeePass supports macOS out of the box, without me having to install Mono and other complicated stuff.

      One of the best password managers. Open source (trustworthy), free and works well with PassiFox for browser integration. Also, gives the same experience across all platforms (Windows, Mac and Linux). It's compatible with KeePass, KeepassX, KeeWeb, etc. Very, very good. Highly recommended.

      lastpass is browser based and therefore different security model

      JohnFastman 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.

      munteanzeno I use KeePass for credit cards and LastPass for normal accounts. They work fine. LastPass is easy to configure and seems secure enough.

    3. Keepass2Android is an open source password manager application for Android. It reads and writes .kdbx-files, the database format used by the popular KeePass 2.x Password Safe for Windows and other desktop operating systems.

      Database can be natively synchronized with cloud storage. You can have a database cert + password protected and have the database tranparently synchronized without needed cert.

      Akhilesh_T Best android alternative to KeePass. Been using this since a few years. I would recommend using a KeyFile along with the Master Password for the best 2FA (2 Factor Authentication).

      JohnFastman 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.

      Akhilesh_T It has a pleasant GUI design and the Auto-type function along with "Mix real keystrokes with random" is most useful on their Desktop App. Most of all, this app is open source.

      web client makes accessing your database simple even on devices where you don't have KeePassXC browser integration available (like on chromebooks or a friends computer). Desktop clients available and they function exactly the same way as the web app.

    5. KeePassX is an application for people with extremly high demands on secure personal data management. It has a light interface, is cross platform and published under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

      Discontinued

      Last release 2.0.3 was in september 2016 https://github.com/keepassx/keepassx/releases https://www.keepassx.org/newsLast commit October 2017.It is because the project has gone innactive that KeePassXC was born.

      KeePassX vs KeePass opinions
      Most users think KeePassX is a great alternative to KeePass.
      KuboFHromoslav 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).

      1Password vs KeePass opinions
      Some users think 1Password is a great alternative to KeePass, some don't.
      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.

      TVDN 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.

    7. Enpass offers you freedom from remembering too many passwords and other important credentials. It secures them in one place by your master password and makes them accessible anywhere and everywhere - on your smartphones, tablets, or desktops.
      Enpass vs KeePass opinions
      Most users think Enpass is a great alternative to KeePass.
      JohnFastman 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.
