Verdict: One of the best free password managers available

Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your email account, your homepage's ftp password, online passwords (like CodeProject member account) etc. The list is endless.

Often people keep the same password for multiple accounts but this could prove a serious problem. If someone else finds this password they then have access to your various online accounts. It's like giving someone your PIN for your credit card.

KeePass is a password manager, or safe, which will enable you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key-disk. You only have to remember one single master password or insert the key-disk to unlock the whole database.

The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).
