KeePass: The Open-source Password Manager that sets the standards

What is KeePass?

KeePass is considered the most popular open-source password manager, and not just among end-users, but also among developers who ported it to all known platforms.

KeePass helps users to manage their passwords securely and privately, without having to worry about many technical details.

It supports several encryption standards, AES and Twofish. It also encrypts the entire database.

KeePass has dozens of ports to macOS, Linux, Windows, iOS, Android, and BlackBerry.

Because of its modular structure and plugin framework, KeePass has dozens of extensions which are built by its community over the years.
