      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.

      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.

      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).

      Olorin The best KeePass alternative that I've been able to find for macOS. Runs natively which can't be said for some other macOS compatible options for KeePass.

      JohnFastman KeePass is a superb, open-source password manager, but with no native Mac counterpart. MacPass tries to fill that gap in the market. Currently in beta.

      JohnFastman 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.
