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.

FYI, you can also run a version of KeePass 2 using the Mono (.NET) framework:

http://keepass2.openix.be

The main reason to do this would be better compatibility with the original KeePass for Windows.

True, yet I hear so many people, including myself making comments such as yours. Nothing wrong with it as I do it myself, however, out of curiosity have you met developers who maintain open source projects who do not like pull requests of others (if using git) etc....? I have not, of course you have devs who are very specific on coding styles and orderly processing of issues instead of work on what bugs you please type of projects/devs.

I am sure there are some angry/righteous dev's taking lead on some projects out there, so for my curiosities sake, if you know of any, please list them. Thanks. Always find advice Monkeyjunkey, I have never touched this project but would you please show us some of your contributions Monkeyjunkey?

If no contribution, that is fine too, really none of my business, +1 for supporting open source software and encouraging others to do the same! Cheers!

Not sure which point you are trying to make, Fishscale. I've mailed the dev about several issues with the KeePassX homepage and have filed 2 tickets. I'm involved with several OpenSource projects, but what does that have to do with anything?

KeePassX has only two item types with the same fields. Sorry guys, but is this a joke? Okay, I know it's free, but that is not an excuse.

This is why I've choosen Locko. Clean and intuitive interface with many kind of items.

Don't give up!

It just works and very well.
Not full featured like KeePass for windows or less bloated if you wish

The UI toolkit used is Qt4 which is good unless you just use plain vanilla QT4 which is bad

Developers should at least set the setUnifiedTitleAndToolBarOnMac ( true ); property in the main window widget to make it look better!!!! I did it and looks better and less distracting

Another alternative is to use wineskin and KeePass for windows. This alternative is better than using mono

Anyways, use it to create and annotate good long random passwords per website and other info. Command+C to copy the password and Command-B the User

Verdict: Use it!

Maybe you can send them your tweak and they can integrate the change? Afaik the devs are not on OS X. Maybe not even aware of that possibility. I think they might happily accept it.

you said -- "Developers should at least set the setUnifiedTitleAndToolBarOnMac ( true ); property in the main window widget to make it look better!!!! I did it and looks better and less distracting "

Is this something to be done via the Terminal -- if so, what is the specific verbiage to type there?

Many thanks.

No review. But I just read the content of "iDiabloX"'s profile page, and there is a fish smell to his 5-star reviews. He is certainly not impressed with 1Password at all. Proceed with caution.

In my tests, I found that 2.0a4 is not GateKeeper-signed and can't read files from the previous version. I'm not sure if this alpha is quite ready for the public.

If you can look behind the awful GUI its not that bad at all. It just does what it claims to do.

But the developers should do some rethinking about the GUI. It so ugly, non-OSX-a-like, illogical layout, I would not dare to use it.

The requirements (‘PPC, Mac OS X 10.4 or later’) would indicate a PPC-only app, which cannot be true, and it is not.

You are not running the current version of KeePassX. This is a known issue that was fixed a very long time ago.

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).
