Once you use KeePass, there's no going back!

KeePass makes it possible to store the passwords (database) in-premise. This makes it possible for us to secure our passwords with the present infrastructure without second guessing the levels of security that is offered. Since we can implement our own cloud storage, all passwords are always a click away whether online or offline; desktop or mobile. We are never going back to another password manager ever!

Pros

It has never been easier to use a password manager before we started using KeePass. On the closed-source platforms, the per-user fee kept going up with each additional user. Over time, we've even lost access to one of our accounts. This is where KeePass has shined for us. Keeping the database local has helped solve so many of the issues that we otherwise have to deal with while using other password managers. All of this while being completely open source? Easily the best decision that we've ever made.

Cons

While using a single database in a multi-user, there is always a chance that one user could over the changes made by another user. But, there are plenty of extensions available to add/remove functionality. In our environment, we regularly save versions, thereby securing our own data.

Reasons for Switching to KeePass

LastPass changed their business model that made it impossible for us to continue using it with long term sustainability.

Great credentials manager!

Pretty content with the features it provides, it serves as our main credentials manager for the IT department, will keep using it.

Pros

1- Totally free. 2- Incredible number of supported plugins and extensions. 3- DB file (.kdbx) is compatible with third-party apps which runs on mobile platforms such as iOS and Android. 4- Easy searching and sorting. 5- Could export to TXT, HTML, XML, and CSV.

Cons

1- Can't centrally manage all user files. 2- GUI somehow looks outdated. 3- Can't auto-save passwords.

Reasons for Choosing KeePass

We support open source, and KeePass is a perfect example to free open source ware.

Reasons for Switching to KeePass

Because LastPass charges for password sharing, on the other hand, KeePass is free.

Good way to keep your passwords secure and safe

Easy to use and a nice way to store secure passwords without trusting a third party to store them online for you, at the cost of some convenience.

Pros

You do not have to rely on and trust some online service to manage your passwords. You can store everything in a local file and back it up to the cloud if necessary. Uses a very widespread standard so there are many mobile apps for opening the database on your phone and browser extensions for autofill available. You can easily generate a secure password in the program itself. The database can be made harder to crack by brute force by increasing the number of encryption cycles and adding a key file.

Cons

The interface is a bit outdated. Also, there is no native Linux or MacOS support (it can be run using Mono, but it sometimes has some bugs). You have to manually sync the database between devices and there is no official website autofill feature, which many online password storage services do have.

The most secure way to manage your passwords

I've been using keepass for a long time. I previously used an online password manager but that service was hacked any all my passwords were exposed. After some research i found keepass and for me it was the perfect solution

Pros

Keepass is very secure. All your passwords are in 1 encrypted database and your passwords will remain private and inaccessible.

Cons

The interface is a bit old, it's not as shiny as the other password managers but the functionality is great which makes me not care a lot about the design

Reasons for Switching to KeePass

My passwords are stored at LastPass and can be stolen if last pass gets hacked

Best Password Vault & manager software

its very good software to store passwords, specially in digital works where we are using multiple websites, emails and office/work related stuff, and remembering all passwords and username along with URL/websites/banking etc is very difficult. Here keypass gives us solution where we can store our passwords so that we will never forget password details. Also as its completely offline solution thus our passwords are saved in database present of our laptop/desktop, so we can trust this software.

Pros

1.) Easy installation and required very less space on disk. 2.) Software interface is very user friendly and easily understandable. 3.) It also predicts if our password is weak or strong. 4.) Provides encryption to password stored by encrypting the associated database. 5.) Customization of folders and sub containers along with search option is available. 6.) Import/export option is also available. 7.) Password database will be stored locally on local desktop/laptop so no point of password leak/hack online.

Cons

I found this software pretty good as I am using this since 5 years, never faced any issue with Keepass so no cons from my end.

Reasons for Choosing KeePass

First of all its keepass is freeware software so we don't have to pay for it, secondly its offline software so you can use it offline and its database is also created on local system so privacy and protection is good as compare to other software's which stores password database online or on cloud.
