LazLock (https://www.cpunk-security.com/lazlock2.html) looks interesting, not least because it's multi-platform FOSS (Linux and Windows, ATM), claims portability, and it's always good to have worthy alternatives in the area -- should more established names like KeePass become unavailable all of a sudden... :P

    Safely store and manage all credentials associated with your banking, media, email, social networks, education or work accounts. LazLock includes a password generator which allows you to create more secure passwords. A plain text version of your data is never written to disk, all decryption is done in memory. LazLock is portable, no installation is required, so it can be run from a USB drive.

LazLock latest release (currently v2.6) can be downloaded from https://sourceforge.net/projects/lazlock/files/2.6/.

Good suggestion. I've been dragging my feet on a password manager for a while now, but my account/password list is getting way out of control so this might become necessary.

I tested LazLock version 2.6- it seems portable and stealth- no settings are saved, just the database file- lazlock.vault in LLdata sub-folder inside program folder.

LazLock - the built-in password generator:

It's built with the Free Pascal compiler and the Lazarus IDE.
For me the program icon is cute.
I have contacted the developer, Christopher Hawkins, with several suggestion for the future development of LazLock.

KeePass becoming unavailable- this is not very probable- an open source program is hard to get obliterated, even TrueCrypt still lives.

    TrueCrypt is precisely the example I had in mind when I wrote that... :|
