KeePass Password Safe


What is KeePass?

Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account,

your homepage's FTP password, online passwords (like website member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you

should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this

password you have a problem... A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, homepage, etc.

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all

your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single

master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most

secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish). For more information, see the features page.

Note: Please read the Edition Comparison page to determine if the 1.x or 2.x edition better suits your needs.
