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.

KeePass is the free, open-source gold standard for managing your passwords and credentials

Reviewed a year ago

I have been using KeePass privately and at work for about 5 years now and I still keep finding new exciting features. I sync may passwords across multiple PCs and Android devices using Synology Drive for storing the database.

Pros

No other product offers all features of KeePass including very well structured Password database, storage of files alongside Keys, Android integration, Autofill in multiple Webbrowsers and any other app you configure. It is FREE and most importantly open-source. This ensures that there are no backdoors and there is no "cloud" or other provider who may have access to or even accidentally leak your sensible data.

Cons

It is a bit more complex to set-up initially, but after a short learning period of 1-2 months the benefits outweigh this entry-hurdly by far.

Essential Software for Personal and Business Security

Reviewed 3 years ago

I started using KeePass for personal use before my company implemented it. I have seen but never used any competing products.

Pros

Simple to use, does what it's supposed to do, and has lots of plugins to customize it for your particular needs. Very secure.

Cons

There are a lot of trade-offs with KeePass. Pros that come with cons. It's open source, so it's free, but it's not so polished. Install is tough for an IT amateur enthusiast like me, many people will need help. Plugins are available, but they're mostly open source too, so they may be finicky, and again, not as polished as other solutions. I'm not aware of any cloud service, which I wouldn't want to...

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

Reviewed 3 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.

KeePass review

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use KeePass to keep business information and logon information securely with me and accessible regardless of internet connectivity. As a small business owner I find myself computing from many locations, and this is a fantastic way to keep things synchronized and secure while still retaining off-line control and direct user management of any information - not just passwords and logons!

Pros

This is a fantastic, compact password manager. I found it's off-line element reassuring. It has a mobile launcher so password files can even be used in professional settings where you do not have administrator access on your pc/the ability to install the program to your computer.

Cons

The only elements of this software seem to stem from its status as non-commercial. The need to update the software manually is a minor annoyance, but the software does reliably inform the user of any needed updates. The only other thing I can think of as a "negative" would be that the design and function of the way the user creates and manages the ordering of the passwords might be cumbersome to some users - but it isn't in anyway difficult to get used to.

An important tool to secure your online presence

Reviewed 5 years ago

Like many I've used Excel or post-it notes (shudder) to keep track of my passwords. I knew I should use a different password for each account, but it was so difficult to keep them straight. I investigated cloud-based services and with all the data breaches I just didn't trust that my accounts and passwords would be secure or that the company would even be around. I also wanted to access my passwords...

Pros

Strong encryption Helpful account & password organization Clean upgrades Works on Android!

Cons

Weak integration into web browsers Other online services have an auto-password-change feature that would be nice
