KeePass is a free open-source password manager, that lets you handle your passwords in a safe approach. You can put all of your passwords in a single database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you solely have to recollect one single master password or choose the important thing file to unlock the entire database.

The databases are encrypted using the perfect and most safe encryption algorithms. A password database consists of just one file that may be transferred from one computer to a different simply.

KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithm to encrypt its password databases.

Both of those ciphers are thought to be very safe. AES e.g. grew to become efficient as a U.S. Federal authorities standard and is authorized by the National Security Agency (NSA) for high secret information.

KeePass All Features


KeePass makes use of the frequent CSV export format of varied password safes like Password Keeper and Password Agent. Exports from these programs might be simply imported to your KeePass databases. The password list might be exported to varied formats like TXT, HTML, XML, and CSV.

The application has a portable edition: you may carry it on a USB stick and run it on Windows systems without installation.

Strong Security

  • KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithm to encrypt its password databases. Both of those ciphers are thought to be very safe. AES e.g. grew to become efficient as a U.S. Federal authorities standard and is authorized by the National Security Agency (NSA) for high secret information.
  • The full database is encrypted, not solely the password fields. So, your user names, notes, etc. are encrypted, too.
  • SHA-256 is used to hash the master key components. SHA-256 is a 256-bit cryptographically safe one-way hash function. No assaults are recognized but towards SHA-256. The output is remodeled using a key derivation function.
  • Protection towards dictionary and guessing assaults: by remodeling the master key part hash using a key derivation function (AES-KDF, Argon2, …), dictionary and guessing assaults might be made more durable.
  • Process memory protection: your passwords are encrypted while KeePass is running, so even when the operating system dumps the KeePass process to disk, your passwords aren’t revealed.
  • [2.x] Protected in-memory streams: when loading the interior XML format, passwords are encrypted using a session key.
  • Security-enhanced password edit controls: KeePass is the primary password manager that features security-enhanced password edit controls. None of the available password edit control spies work towards these controls. The passwords entered in these controls aren’t even seen within the process memory of KeePass.
  • The master key dialog might be proven on a safe desktop, on which just about no keylogger works. Auto-Type might be protected towards keyloggers, too.
