Pros
Keepass is a lifesaver for me, i have many many pswd on my work and thanks to this software i can manege it really good.
Their password keeping system is really good and their site interface was amazing. I really like there working way.
Secure, easy to use, run on different platforms. Nice place to secure you favorite links with your credentials.
Cons
I have been hacked several times and losing my e-mail address as many times and it's so frustrating. With Keepass, I can use several passwords that are so complicated that I can't remember them.
The interface is terrible, the user experience is terrible. It took me weeks to learn how to use it, and I found myself avoiding it at every turn.
The lack of cloud based hosting and sync proved to be a barrier to long term use.

Must-have in this digital era!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I can never stress this enough... Security is of utmost importance in this day and age. KeePass will help you to adopt a more serious workflow in generating, managing, retrieving your passwords for all accounts you have.

Pros

Security is of utmost importance in this millennial age! We all have so many accounts to manage (e.g., email, social network, office, personal blogs... etc). And all these require a username/password... KeePass has helped me to manage all these! I used to reuse or use similar passwords for all of my accounts (to simplify things), but this is one of the worst things to do! It makes hacking one's...

Cons

The UI can be improved to have a more modern look and not so old-style boxy feel. But this is more of the aesthetics and not the function. I'm pretty happy with my use of KeePass and had no security breaches with it.

KeePass is an excellent password vault.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Will definitely continue using as it does the best job at storing your password in an encrypted format.

Pros

Very secure, simple interface, quick learning curve and both the application and the database have a small foot print.

Cons

No way to recover a lost or forgotten password. No way to synchronize across multiple PCs or Servers. Looks unfinished.

An essential tool to manage passwords, but it's only local

Reviewed 2 years ago

I could store all my data and even attached files to my secrets database. I could use it to handle a manual workflow to backup my most sensitive information and a way to keep safe the information that only was for my eyes.

Pros

This software is one of the easiest tools that I can use to store my passwords. It's very basic, and it leads to a quick learning curve. It offers strong password generator and attachments to the entries. For example, I use attachments to store private keys or digital certificates, and in that way this software acts also as a backup of my sensitive data.

Cons

The database is only local, so you can't use it in other devices, but the worst thing is that, if your computer is broken or stolen, you lost also the database and your secrets. It should be good if integrates a backup system or link to, for example, Dropbox, Google Drive or even another professional services like Amazon S3.

It's hard to not like it...but it's also hard to use it

Reviewed 4 months ago

KeePass is one of the top of line the Free and Open Source password management options out there...and when it comes to keeping your passwords safe...you kind of want a FOSS application doing that for you. So if you're a tech-savvy user looking for a highly customizable way to keep your passwords seriously secure this is the app for you. If you don't have a degree in IT or the time to muddle through the murky waters of generating, encrypting, and integrating your own secure passwords, then this probably isn't the way you want to go.

Pros

What drew me to KeePass and what I like the most about it is that it's FOSS--free and open source. The developers did a really great job with the product. Users get complete control over their information and there are a lot of different options to choose from to help keep your passwords REALLY secure. Like...really, REALLY secure. I also loved all the different plug ins and extensions that they had, which is what most users expect from software like this. The best way to use KeePass is for in-browser use, especially since it doesn't have an "official" Android or iOS app--but considering its FOSS, I don't think the lack of official app is necessarily a bad thing.

Cons

KeePass isn't user friendly, like at all, in anyway. It feels antiquated...which if were purely an aesthetic drawback wouldn't have deterred my use; however, it's not. I mean yes, the user interface looks old and outdated--it's not flashy, splashy, bright, or modernly luring in anyway, but what's worse is that interacting with the software is difficult. t's not "self-explanatory", it doesn't have any flow or direction, let alone guidance. It was a bummer.

I highly recommend KeePass

Reviewed 10 months ago

I use it many times during every day and it allows me to have different, high quality, passwords for every site and I never have to worry about losing them or someone breaking them.

Pros

I have used KeePass for many years. It is free and, very important, it is open source, which means that it has been thoroughly checked for security problems. KeePass's easily configured auto-type makes browsing easy and very safe. It is also multi-platform. I keep the password database in the cloud with a very secure passphrase, so that my wife and I can easily access it from different devices - Windows, Linux, Android, etc. There are many plugins for KeePass. For instance, I use a plugin (Readable Passphrase) that generates easy to remember but very hard to crack passphrases. The passphrases are easily configured for different types of pattern. A very important feature is that KeePass keeps a history of all changes to every entry

Cons

The only problem I have had is when KeePass is open on several devices and changes are made on two (or more) of them. KeePass usually manages to combine the changes but it does occasionally fail. The solution is to make sure to save changes immediately.
