KeePassXC2.5.3

20 January 2020

Community fork of KeePassX.

Overview

KeePassXC is a community fork of KeePassX, a native cross-platform port of KeePass Password Safe, with the goal of extending and improving it with new features and bugfixes to provide a feature-rich, fully cross-platform, and modern open-source password manager.

Features:
  • Encrypted - The complete database is always encrypted with the industry-standard AES (alias Rijndael) encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. KeePassXC uses a database format that is compatible with KeePass Password Safe. Your wallet works offline and requires no Internet connection.
  • Cross-Platform - KeePassXC is a community fork of KeePassX, the cross-platform port of KeePass for Windows. Every feature works cross-platform and was thoroughly tested on multiple systems to provide users with the same look and feel on every supported operating system. This includes the beloved Auto-Type feature.
  • Open Source - The full source code is published under the terms of the GNU General Public License. We see open source as a vital prerequisite for any security-critical software product. For that reason, KeePassXC is and always will be free as in freedom (and in beer). Contributions by everyone are welcome!

Don't forget to check MacPass for a native KeePass implementation, and Bitwarden for a 1Password full replacement :D

I have always found this app to be windows-centric and not designed along mac user interface guidelines therefore I couldn't use or recommend.

Used to love 1Password but got way too expensive, too many upgrades, too much money. Now I use Enpass for Mac desktop (currently v 5.6.8) -- while not perfect, it comes so much closer to 1Password than any others I have tried (and I have tried half a dozen or more) so Enpass is my recommendation and has been for past few years and as they have improved it.

Caveat: it's possible they've changed KeePass but when i tried it in the past, just too overcomplexified (windoze characteristics) and not for me a lifelong multi-platform user who prefers Mac OS without a doubt.

A warning: on exporting all custom set attributes get lost, so this feature is totally useless and you will loose important data! Also having a gui made with (more) love would make daily with keepassxc more fun.

Perhaps I have missed something but this product makes my password management more difficult rather than easier. I am especially disappointed in the almost total lack of documentation and no 'help' menu. I literally spent hours trying to find documentation on the details of how to set it up and what some of the various fields are for. I have yet to get the shortcut key to work which when first installed I found out defaults to blank. Unless somebody replies to this pointing out its errors, I will continue to search out and try other solutions to replace the aging app I currently use. While this app has promise I feel it is not yet ready for prime time.

Is there any way to import anything other than an existing KeePasss database? If not, then I can't see how this app can gain new users.

As an old user of KeepassX, I can say that this application is BETTER. And actively developed. Uses the same password database of the old application; I am switching to KeepassXC today.
