KeePass Classic v1.35

billon on 2 Jan 2018

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.

This is the most intuitive program for keeping passwords and automatically entering them in for you at the touch of a hotkey. I've been using this thing for a year or so and it's great. There are some awesome new features ( if anyone is interested.

Same as above - I've been using it since version 1.03 and still, it's just what I need! Password generator and expiration reminder are invaluable.

it's not crossover compatible, try password gorilla if you need flexibility. 2006-10-16 05:21

I've been using since 1.03, and it's hands down the best password management utility out there. And I've tried more than I care to remember!

I have been using this now for about 2 years, best ever,

Great program - use it for all my passwords, plus personal stuff like credit cards, etc.

Been using this as my PWM after using another, shareware alternative before that - it has some issues here and there, especially in Vista, but I still love it and use it - I have found workarounds for the Vista issues, (mainly autotype) and continue to use it.

The new 2.0 Alpha seems to be a jump away from the support for cross-platforms, as it requires .NET, but KeePass was *always* touted as a Windows - based solution first and foremost - all others are maintained by third party developers. Let's hope that someone will find a way to port the 2.x series to a fully portable app as well, For I would hate to look for a new solution *yet again*.

Notes on the developer's site at explain why "KeePass 1.x will continue to be supported indefinitely."

There are few version of this software which no one knows:
KeePass - for Windows,
KeePassX - for GNU/Linux,
KeePass J2ME - for mobile devices.

Each mentioned app works with the same database file format. It is very simple to have KeePass everywhere you want. I am so geek that I keep 2 versions of it on my USB (win / linux) and one inside my mobile phone ;)

Do we really need the portableapps version?
There's this zip version on the website, it says:

"Download this ZIP package and unpack it to your favorite location (USB stick, ...). KeePass runs without any additional installation and won't store any settings outside the application directory."

linuxamp 2007-09-03 14:31

Spongebob, I just use the zip version + pstart. The portable apps version is designed to integrate with the portable apps suite, a launcher created by pushes their brand through their launcher and splash screens (marketing). If I can find a portable app without their splash screen I use it.

Bobart 2007-09-04 04:25

The Portable Apps version puts it in their own folder structure and makes it easy to use with their app launcher. In addition, their launcher makes the last used directory setting truly portable.

linuxamp, almost every launcher from allows you to use an INI file to disable the splash screen. For more details look in .\KeePassPortable\Other\KeePassPortableSource\Readme.txt

Does anybody have the link for the J2ME keepass?
The link on the site only leads to information not download

Naomaru 2007-10-23 12:17

Nobody - now you can download KeePassJ2ME from

Smith 2007-10-24 11:23

Cant open a .kdb file with KeePass! Any suggestions!

Serj 2008-04-27 10:41

I use TreeDBnotes Pro (Passwords manager) see this link

Great program! 2008-04-28 02:51

Great piece of software; been using it daily for six months now. Many thanks to the authour(s).

John L. Galt says : I have found workarounds for the Vista issues, (mainly autotype)

In Vista, It remove the second character of the Username (no idea why) but John if you have a workaround, I'll be definitely interested.

Been using this program since early 2007 and don't know how I could do without. Truly a grand piece of art!

Mike 2009-09-10 15:51

This is my favorite password manager. I've been using it for 2 years.

Magibon 2011-06-22 19:06

I was using PortableApps version for quite some time.
But have recently switched to v2 because i use this mainly on my Notebook and .Net is not a problem for me.

I used to store my Usernames and Passwords in a text file, but this app. is great.

Thanks to the author for making this free :)
This is one of my most utilized apps. on my Notebook.


Ascend4nt 2014-04-09 19:18

I think it's high time this entry has been changed, because any supported Operating System has the minimum .NET 2.0 requirement to run the 2.x version of this software.

However, since they are both updated, it makes sense to link to both versions


BottleOfWater 2015-04-03 19:44

KeePass has been updated to 1.29:


Checker 2015-04-03 22:10

@ BottleOfWater: Thanks ... and updated ;)


Joe 2015-04-04 11:15

This entry should be updated to include compatibility with Windows 8/8.1.


Checker 2015-04-04 13:30

@ Joe: Done ;)


CornHolio the Gringo 2015-05-02 17:27

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


Mixture 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.
