Editors' Review

+

KeePass Password Safe Professional provides a helpful directory for remembering passwords and keeping them secure. While its layout was slightly confusing, its excellent results made us very happy, and to top it off, it's free.

The program's interface has a stark, directionless layout that initially turned us off. However, a visit to the Help file's instructions and some experimenting quickly opened this program up, and it actually proved to be easy to use. The program's functionality is quite simple: Follow an onscreen menu to enter a Web site's information and its corresponding user name and password. This entry is stored in an alphabetical directory with all your other entries, much like a digital filing card system. You can look up any forgotten password stored there, which will inevitably save a great deal of time and frustration. You must enter a Master password to open the program, which keeps your sensitive information safe from prying eyes and adds an overall level of security. KeePass also provided a strong feature that randomly generates passwords to meet specific security requirements, offering yet another way to secure your data and activities. KeePass might have offered a clearer layout, but its ability to generate, store and retrieve passwords was excellent. Use it, and you won't have to keep using the same passwords over and over again, just to remember them. Unwise.

KeePass Password Safe Professional is freeware. Its strengths at saving passwords outweigh any negatives, and we recommend this excellent security tool to all users.

"IMO the best of the password vaults."

March 10, 2011  |  By eliotg2003

 |  Version: KeePass Password Safe Professional 2.14

Pros

Been using KeePass for a few years now. I use different long and random character pw's for everything I need a pw for and I only have to remember one master pw. It syncs to my BlackBerry so I always have my pw's. And best of all, it's free!!

Cons

None that I can think of.

"Very close, but no cigar"

January 08, 2011  |  By arafurian

 |  Version: KeePass Password Safe Professional 2.14

Pros

This free program is designed to keep track of important information - account details, passwords etc. It does this very well, and very conveniently. It is (mostly) a pleasure to use.

Cons

It has two MAJOR flaws: (1) it cannot be set to auto-save; and (2) it cannot synchronise with the portable version, which you might wish to use on a USB flashdrive.

Summary

KeePass comes in two versions: the Pro version (this one), designed to be installed on a Windows computer; and a portable version for use on a USB flashdrive. The two versions are very similar, giving you an excellent way to save usernames, passwords and website urls. Both allow import and export data in a variety of formats, but only the Pro version allows synchronisation of data (between programs on desktop and laptop machines, but not with flashdrives). Overall, I like the program for its general all-round usefulness and convenience. My only complaint is that I have to be exceptionally careful to manually save data as I enter it. Without an auto-save function, it is extremely easy to lose the data you enter - which includes the impossible-to-remember passwords you just asked it to create for you! (To give you an idea of the danger here: if you create a new password, and get distracted just as you are about to save it, when later you switch off the computer, you WILL lose that password. The program cannot delay the boot-down, so that it is unable to remind you to make the save!)

I can't think of any

"Excellent Password Manager"

January 08, 2011  |  By PP Martin

 |  Version: KeePass Password Safe Professional 2.14

Pros

Powerful encryption, while easy management of password. Handy categorization feature. Search for keywords. Customized icons etc.

Cons

There is no "auto sync" with the cloud... but you can simply use a program like dropbox to take care of this.

Summary

I am glad I finally found a suitable replacement for ZD Net's Pasword Pro 32 v3 1 4
