KeePass – The Password Manager

KeePass is a free, open-source, light-weight and easy-to-use password manager. I use this application all the time; It helps me make stronger passwords. If you can’t make your own hard-to-remember-but-very-secure-passoword, then KeyPass has an auto-generate feature which is very customizable, fast and easy to use. It is also very easy to manage your multitude of passwords – with sub-folders, groups, and handy-sorting. To top all of this off KeyPass can be used in Windows, Linux and Mac! The Linux and Mac version is called KeePassX because it is an unofficial port; you can find KeePassX in Add/Remove in Ubuntu. Don’t worry about people viewing your passwords because the database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. You can also hide almost all the KeyPass information under asterisks.

KeePass is a must use for computer users who use several passwords for several websites or utilities that want to be secure.
