KeePassX free download for Mac

Password manager.


KeePassX helps you remember the many passwords you have to have to remain secure. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your homepage's FTP password, online passwords (like CodeProject member account), etc., etc., etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem... A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, homepage, etc. Unimaginable.

KeePass is a free/open-source password manager or safe which helps 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. So 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).

I do not trust this app. If they can't write a proper MacOS X application, then I have no reason to believe that they can get the encryption and security aspects correct either. Just my opinion.

Having trouble with cross platform use of Android KeePassX to Mac KeePassX. It is indicated that Android files should be importable to new Mac files. It worked for me once, and after that any file touched by the Android version indicated that the file is corrupted or the password is wrong. I'm going with corrupted, because I've tried every password I've ever assigned to the app, and no dice. Love KeePassX, but need agreement cross platform. Any tips?

If you only knew just how happy I am! I have been waiting so long for this. Works Perfectly (so far) Have been struggling with Mono after moving from Windoze to Mac and reluctant to give up Keepass which does exactly what I need it to. Full featured, multi platform, running of Dropbox etc

KeePassX 2.0 is no more beta, like it was said in the MacUpdate review; is a normal and solid release.

My only complaint about KeePassX is its inability to handle multiple users sharing the database. I've worked with teams who open/edit/save/close KeePassX as a team and I can't tell you how many times passwords got bonked. For one person? Great solution. For teams? Look elsewhere. PS, still Alpha?! Wat's up wit dat?! Don
