KeePass is a password manager that helps you store and manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database locked with a single master key or a key file. The database is encrypted using the AES algorithm and the program includes a strong automatic password generator, expire dates, customized icons and categories, and much more.

Note that available plug-ins may not be portable.

Note: KeePass Classic is also available with fewer features, but does not require DotNet. See edition comparison.

This has everything from KeePass 1 and much more. .NET 2 is surely no reason to keep it private??

Take note that the "Professional" version isn't a "Pro"/commercial version of KeePass. It's just a label for version 2,

"But use of plugins causes creation of and writing to AppData\Local\KeePass\PluginCache\."

How saddening. I like the highest security of the Serpent encryption algorithm, but its a plugin and I need portability, so I reduced the security back down to the AES/Rijndael encryption algorithm.

@Mixture: confirmed. I just tested with the Twofish plugin. It just saves a DLL file rather than settings but other plugins likely have additional options that would not be saved locally. I'll add a note to the entry.

Great! Now that a new and native encryption algorithm, ChaCha20, and a new password hash, Argon2, has been added in version 2.35, I changed my database settings to include the new high security features. Now, if only someone will add more native high security features to KeePass 2.xx.

v2.35

@Mixture - Although ChaCha20 is listed in the release notes as an encryption algorythm, I think this is actually a random number generator. While that's part of good crypto and the program is probably more secure as a result, I wouldn't describe the 2.xx series as insecure.

v2.35
