KeePassfor Mac



No need to remember

KeePass keeps all of your login information safe from prying eyes. You need to remember one password, the one you use to access this application.

Just log in

Keep all of your passwords in one place with KeePass, an application that makes forgetting passwords a thing of the past.

KeePass is a great tool for people who tend to use different passwords for a variety of websites and accounts. It’s a password system that securely stores your information that can be accessed with a single click. It stays locked with a master key or a key file. The key file can be stored in a variety of places, such as a USB drive. However, forget the master password, or lose the key file, and you’ll permanently lose access to your info.

The uncomfortable interface is part of why it’s difficult to use. For beginners, creating new databases can be complicated. You have to enter more than just a login ID and password. You have to manually insert the specific websites, a title for the key, and the expiration date where applicable. Sure, the customizable icons make it a bit easier to manage, but starting out can be tedious. Some might say it isn’t fair to complain, though, because the program is free to use.

The advanced security that KeePass uses is a great reason to use it. It is secured through the use of SHA 256-bit and AES encryption. This is considered quite difficult to crack. This even covers the export option that the application has. You can store these lists in various formats for safekeeping. Some of these formats include .XML, .TXT, and .CSV.

Where can you run this program?

KeePass runs on Mac computers. It is also available for Windows 2000 and later.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. Dashlane, for example, is a much more organized and easy to use program.
