KeePassXC free download for Mac


21 August 2020

Community fork of KeePassX.


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.

  • 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!

Recently KeePassXC doesn't open. You need also to enter the database and some key file...??!! Why??? What for ??? I couldn't figure out, so went back to using KPx.

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.
