KeePass Password Safe 2

Today, you have to remember many passwords. You need a password for a lot of websites, your e-mail account, your webserver, network logins, etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use a different password for each account, because if you would use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password, you would have a problem: the thief would have access to all of your accounts

  • Add String fields (e.g. Credit-Card number, Bank-Account number, etc.)
  • You can attach files to password entries (e.g. images, documents etc.)
  • KeePass has a powerful internal viewer/editor for text files, images, documents. You don't even need to export attached files to view/edit them!

  • KeePass can minimize itself and type the information of the currently selected entry into dialogs, webforms, etc. Of course, the typing-sequence is 100% user-customizable
  • KeePass features a global auto-type hot key. When KeePass is running in the background (with opened database) and you press the hot key, it looks up the correct entry and executes its auto-type sequence.
  • Two-Channel Auto-Type function
  • All fields, title, username, password, URL and notes can be drag&dropped into other windows.

  • You can define the possible output characters of the generator (number of characters and type).
  • Random seeding through user input: mouse movement and random keyboard input.

Note: In my opinion, a Password-Manager is an important tool that everyone should use. You always have to Login to different pages, and with KeePass (strong passwords) and the Auto-Login (Hotkey) function this is very easy and saves a lot of time.


I know that some people don't like Password Manager tools because all the login information is stored in a file on the PC and therefore there is a higher risk that someone can have access to all the data. I have been using KeePass for years and i am happy with it so I wanted to write about it. As long as you handle everything on your PC and on the Internet with care, the risk is very low. Please don't take it as a criticism.


Important: Do not forget to make regular backups (external devices)
