People User Opinions

Jeb54321 in the KeePass forums:
KeePass gives me a sense of security I haven't found in any other product (2 page long comment).

Erez Zukerman in his article 'KeePass review: Make strong passwords and keep them safe':
If you adopt just one security tool this year, make it KeePass. This free and open-source password manager is available for Windows, with unofficial ports for iOS, Android, Linux, and Mac OS X. A secure, lengthy, completely random password goes a long way towards improving your security - and having a separate password for each and every website and service you use is the single most important thing you can do to keep secure.

KeePass has been recommended in an article by security.itworld.com:
One password vault that is receiving quite a bit of attention and has been getting good reviews is "KeePass". KeePass is an open source password vault for Windows. It appears to be developed with attention to security and features some very useful functions, such as cut and pasting of passwords with a clipboard wipe after a few moments, strong encryption and the ability to access password databases stored on network servers instead of local hard disks. If this technology interests you, KeePass might be a good place to start looking.

Nicholas at SnapFiles.com in his review 'Private fort knox':
Yes! This is the one! After trying a few other (awkward) password keepers I discovered KeePass and found out quickly that this program is useful, reliable, user friendly and very safe. It reveals passwords and other secrets only for a very short time on the clipboard, just long enough to paste it into a waiting password field. From now on I never have to click buttons with texts like: Forget Password? Very valuable and free!

NothinsEasy at SnapFiles.com in his review 'Excellent security tool':
KeePass ranks with the best freeware software and surpasses many commercial products. I've evaluated software and security for many years, and one truth is, that any effective security effort reduces convenience. Passwords are so inconvenient that we are all tempted to use and reuse passwords that are "weak", duplicate and virtually useless. Today's hacking and identity theft events should be enough to encourage most to try a product like KeePass. The only sensible way to start is to read over the comprehensive KeePass documentation and try to learn enough so that the methods that you choose to create, organize and use numerous passwords are consistent with, and exploit KeePass features. This chore should be less unpleasant since KeePass is a well documented, well designed, apparently reliable product.

Chameleon Web Services:
KeePass is our number 1 choice of password safe software as the features that it offers, coupled with the fact that it is a free open source application, give us complete satisfaction and peace of mind.
