    • 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.

    • 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 • 3 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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 • 1 agrees and 3 disagrees 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).

    • Basically a fork of KeePass with some newer features, updated crypto, incorporated bug fixes on GitHub from KeePass project, nice interface, cross-platform, lets me import my existing KeePass database, etc. davidhartleyMar 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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.

    • 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. birdNov 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 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees 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 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

For me, one of the important things in KeePass - encrypted file storage and templating add-on. For example, you could keep account data, related document scans, credit card info in one handy entry and it always will be encrypted. No need to bother with creating extra encrypted volume with VeraCrypt (or something else) to sync it with different devices.


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.

The best password manager for me. It's also possible to use it online. LastPass is great too though I don't trust any extension in chrome to save my passwords. Pretty much google chrome itself has the features LastPass has. But KeePass is very safe.

Really nice software. For me it could be a bit more stable though.

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.

The most essential application that I have on my computer (and every one of my devices including Blackberry). Fantastic software, great developer and it is Open Source.

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.

A great tool for storing passwords.

This is Windows-only. for Linux, you can use KeepassX.
