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.

@webfork:

Don't forget to edit also KeePass Classic 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.

webfork on 2017-01-24 01:13

@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.

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, which is locked with one master key or a key-disk. You need only remember one single master password to unlock the whole database, which is encrypted using AES and Twofish algorithms. The program includes a strong automatic password generator, expire dates, customized icons and categories, etc.

Note that available plug-ins may not be portable.

I recommend using KeePass v2 series, because of the flexibility it gives.

Mixture on 2016-03-11 16:17

Since KeePass upgraded to 2.32 and finally has the encryption algorithm plugin, SERPENT, I switched from portable Password Safe 3.38.01 to portable KeePass 2.32 with TwoFish, Serpent, GOST, and Salsa20 encryption algorithm plugins.

@Orca: TPFC is an entirely volunteer site; what you describe is the result of past policy that has since been changed. Feel free to submit a KeePass 2 entry. Or post in the forums calling attention from the moderator team.

fyi new website
"PasswordSafe's official website is now at https://pwsafe.org/ "

IanFromBarrie on 2017-04-01 03:52

This version does not run on XP. The last version that did is 3.38.02, which can be accessed from sourceforge through the download page on the pwsafe.org site. There was some suggestion last year that 3.40 might be fixed to run on XP, but not so far, it seems
