Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your website's FTP password, online passwords (like website member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem... A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, website, etc. Unimaginable.

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to 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 file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish). For more information, see the features page.

Is it really free?

Yes, KeePass is really free, and more than that: it is open source (OSI certified). You can have a look at its full source and check whether the encryption algorithms are implemented correctly.

What's New:

New Features:

  • Added commands in the group context menu (under 'Rearrange'): 'Expand Recursively' and 'Collapse Recursively'.
  • Added option 'When selecting an entry, automatically select its parent group, too' (turned on by default).
  • Added placeholders for data of the group that is currently selected in the main window: {GROUP_SEL}, {GROUP_SEL_PATH} and {GROUP_SEL_NOTES}.
  • While importing/synchronizing, indeterminate progress is now displayed on the taskbar button (on Windows 7 and higher).
  • Added optional parameters 'Filter - Group' and 'Filter - Tag' for the 'Export active database' trigger action.
  • Pressing the Escape key in the main window now locks the workspace (independent of the current database locking state, in contrast to Ctrl+L).
  • Added option 'Extra-safe file transactions' in 'Tools' -> 'Options' -> tab 'Advanced'.
  • Added customization option to specify how often the master key dialog appears when entering incorrect master keys.
  • Plugins: added event 'FormLoadPost' for the main window.
  • KPScript: the 'GetEntryString' command now supports the '-Spr' option, which causes KPScript to Spr-compile the field value (i.e. placeholders are replaced, field references are resolved, environment variables are inserted, etc.).

Improvements:

  • Improved database synchronization performance.
  • Improved object reordering during a database synchronization for new and relocated groups/entries.
  • Improved synchronization of deleted objects information.
  • Improved database synchronization to prevent implicit object deletions.
  • HTML export/printing: the notes column now is twice as wide as the other columns.
  • When entering a Spr-variant password in the entry dialog, the quality estimation is now disabled.
  • Group tooltips are now displayed for about 30 seconds.
  • The root group is now always expanded when opening a database.
  • Improved private mode browser detection.
  • Improved DPI awareness declaration (on Windows 10 and higher).
  • Improved regular expression searching performance in usual use cases.
  • Improved natural string comparison performance (on Unix-like systems).
  • Improved mnemonic characters in the 'Rearrange' menus.
  • Upgraded installer.
  • Various UI text improvements.
  • Various code optimizations.
  • Minor other improvements.
