Editors' Review

KeePass Password Safe helps you create secure passwords and then keep them safe in a master list, so you can access them at any time. Your password list is kept encrypted. It can only be accessed with a Master Password that you create, so you can use a different password for all of your accounts but only have to remember one.

Pros

Password Generator: The Password Generator included in this program is a nice addition, and it gives you the ability to create all kinds of random passwords that will be much harder for someone else to guess than anything you could come up with on your own. You can choose how long you want the passwords to be and what types of characters you'd like to use in them. Options include uppercase, lowercase, number, underline, spaces, special characters, brackets, and more.

Multiple databases: To store all of the passwords and other log-in information you need to access your various accounts, you can create one or more databases within this program. Each database can have its own name and description, which will make it that much easier to find the log-in you're looking for later on.

Drag and drop log-ins: To use the log-in information stored in this app to access one of your online accounts, you have a couple of options. One is to just copy and paste the username and password into the appropriate fields on the website, but you can also just drag and drop the entries directly from KeePass into the corresponding log-in spaces, which is a handy feature.

Cons

Unintuitive: Many of the processes included in this app are not terribly intuitive in terms of the steps you have to take and the way they're laid out. The interface itself is quite utilitarian, and it doesn't offer a lot of help, especially for new users just starting to find their way around.

Bottom Line

KeePass Password Safe is a useful free program, and it allows you to create passwords that meet just about any specification. The drag and drop option is a nice one for getting your information out of the program and into the spaces you need it to be. While the interface could be more friendly, the program isn't actually hard to use once you find your way around.

    "KeePass is the Best Password Manager ever used!"

    May 01, 2014   |   By hrbey

    Version: KeePass Password Safe 2.26

    Pros

    I have used several Password Managers thru the years and KeePass is the best one for me. It works with ALL of my website logons and application logons as well. For common type of website logon, it works without intervention. For the unusual type of website logon, you can configure a way to make it work with minimal intervention. There are many settings available for the user but it also works well without changing settings. The security features are excellent.

    Cons

    I have not been using this for online automatic form filling.

    Summary

    Among the many Password Managers I have tried, this is the best one. It works with every logon I have tried, including resident applications. Your logon data is stored locally and is encrypted, of course, and I back it up offline often.

    "Among the best free Password Managers"

    March 26, 2013   |   By ememkai

    Version: KeePass Password Safe (.NET Framework) 2.19

    Pros

    Rich feature set normally found only in paid programs. Among them are autotype with an obfuscation setting, and organizing entries in folders. I have used this program for several years now to store over 200 passwords. In addition, I find it is a convenient place to store equipment serial numbers, software keys, and personal vital statistics.

    Cons

    The interface is a bit old fashioned, but so am I.

    Summary

    KeePass is really a fairly powerful database manager that is well-adapted to its function of securely storing passwords and other sensitive information.

    Updated on Aug 2, 2013

    This version adds a great convenience: Autotype and Open URL are now on the toolbar.

    "Version 2 Works With Some Effort"

    October 02, 2012   |   By EricVonZipper

    Version: KeePass Password Safe (.NET Framework) 2.19

    Pros

    Free and it holds all 39 of my passwords. No auto-capture - you have to enter details by hand - but it does have very fast auto-login. Didn't ask for personal details or any login with your e-mail address.

    Cons

    Kinda klunky but it works, and if you like hands-on gizmos, you'll like this.

    Summary

    Kinda off putting at first, but it'll grow on 'ya!

    "Well worth the effort to master it"

    May 21, 2012   |   By RJD185

    Version: KeePass Password Safe (.NET Framework) 2.19

    Pros

    Compact functioning and portable

    Cons

    Takes a little time to understand (but worth it)

    Summary

    The multi-factor encryption means this is a fine way to carry a large number of passwords around with you without having too many concerns about loss of the password safe itself. I now habitually have 20+ character passwords and use the auto-type functionality. For clarity I'm still hanging on at v2.14 so haven't used v2.19 yet but assuming it continues to function as well, this is a key part of my traveling tool kit.

    "good and free but help needs how to get started section"

    April 10, 2012   |   By spacecon

    Version: KeePass Password Safe 2.18

    Pros

    good and free. Works on windows7 64bit. My good old ZDNET password program I have used for years wouldn't run on W7-64bit, so I had to replace. This one works good.

    Cons

    The help could be much better. When I first started the program, it opened up and left me kind of hanging. Wasn't sure what to do. I eventually figured it out, but it would be nice if there was a getting started section in the help files. The help is aimed at developers and programming people instead of users.

    Summary

    Overall very good once you get started.
