Pros: Keepass is a simple but powerful password manager, you just need a really complex master password and then all credentials can be stored in a single place, securely. Auto-Type is also a great feature

Cons: Maybe the client could be improved, for example more integrated with plugin list and languages list (without going to their website and download manually)

Pros: We needed an ideally open source password management system. I didn't want anything tied into a particular browser and I wanted something we could back up. Keepass was the least annoying of what I looked at. It is easy to generate passwords and we save our file onto a shared server so all employees can access it. The search function works well and we estimate between the search function and the autotyping, we've saved hours as a company in worktime.

Cons: The Mac version allows me to alphabetize listings (you have to drag them) but since I work on my PC most of the time, it can get annoying. Also sometimes it's hard to know when you are synchronizing versions if it's really synchronizing or you are saving over someone's work. It is free though and I get that limits the features and support that can be expected.

Overall: Safe reliable password management for us and our clients.

Pros: An easy way to keep the plethora of passwords required by an IT department and to generate secure new ones.

Cons: Very little, maybe not the most inspired of user interfaces but function in this instance is more important.

Overall: An excellent team tool, used daily and handy plugins available to get password generation working for you and your team.

Pros: Encrypted and secure vault to save and manage passwords (including password history) for any sort of program. The auto-fill option is very nice and includes options to launch links with any available webbrowser currently installed. Password generation tool can be quite convenient.

Cons: Password generation feature is a little, interesting. Primarily I feel the special characters section contain too many options most system administrators reject but there is an exception option in the advanced tab.

Pros: No more remembering passwords, no more sharing passwords between sites, no more worrying about a cloud based company having all my passwords.

Cons: The fact that once I show people that I don't have to remember passwords anymore, I get to train them on how to use Keepass. I do wish there was an 'official' mobile version.

Pros: I love how easy it is to save your passwords and copy paste them securely from KeePass to the website or software you need to log in to. Having this tool readily available makes it feasible to have unique and challenging passwords for all of your accounts.

Cons: The interface is a little out dated and could use an update to look more like the apps that we use a daily basis, but it serves its purpose, so I can't complain too much.

Overall: I am able to have unique and complicated passwords for all of my work accounts and never have to worry about forgetting which password I used. You can even use a password generator and save that password in KeePass. KeePass allows me to not have to remember what any of my passwords are.

Pros: Its free. All your accounts are in one place and all you need to remember is one master password. The can go on a server or a shared folder so that multiple people can access it if necessary.

Cons: Not as user friendly as others and doesn't back up to the cloud unless you place the file in a cloud software. Since its free, these are minor.

Pros: Free, easy to use and install, cloud compatible.

Cons: Mobile app leaves much to be desired.

Overall: During the early half of 2016 I was starting to become interested in the network and web security tools that are becoming available. As one of those people who had 3 interchangable passwords for every website, I wasn't very secure and I was looking for way to improve on that.

I'd heard about password managers from a colleague who explained that, along with 2-factor auth, were the safest way of using multiple passwords.
I found a list of such systems and, one by one, tried them out to see which one was best for my needs. Although some were very good they had small let downs that ultimately stopped me from using them.

Keepass though has astounded me with the quality of it's features and how easily I was able to integrate it into my every day PC usage.
After working my way through the instructions on the website I managed to figure out how each of the features work. The software itself, though not beautiful in it's aesthetics, is simplistic and features are easy to spot by the simple logos used.
Although the software itself is rather daunting at first, not being the simplest product, it is rather powerful when you get it working.

I now use this as my de-facto password management solution, integrated with cloud storage and mobile usage. I've never felt safer on the web.

Recommendations to other buyers: More work on the mobile platform would much improve it's usability and push it further ahead of other such products in the market.

Pros: It just works, it's very secure, no signup needed

Cons: Old-style interface

Overall: Don't put your passwords in the cloud and let someone else look after them - keep them yourself. If that's your view, this is the software for you. Having a lot of passwords means you need a way of storing and retrieving them, and this is a great way to do it. There's no need to sign up to any service, or give anyone else your details. Just download the software and run it - that's it.

Pros: The encryption it offers and the peace of mind it provides.

Cons: You'll need to have at least a little bit of tech savvy to get this going on your laptop.

Overall: After a little bit of a struggle with getting started, I'm happy to save I've been using KeePass for over 2 years now. Whether I'm being slightly paranoid about my prospects of getting hacked or whether it's just the day and age we live in, KeePass is definitely a lifesaver. All it took was one breach of my PayPal account (whether thru phishing or outright hack) and I was on the lookout for something to keep my "keys" safe. The amount of time I spent on the phone that day talking to banking institutions, credit card companies, merchants whose services I use with recurring payments tied it, and so on was borderline exhausting. All because of compromised account credentials. After some searching, KeePass ended up being my go-to for my laptop and also on my mobile. I especially like the password generator which can be customized according to the password requirements of a particular company (i.e. no special characters, only letters, and numbers, etc.) You only need to have one password memorized and the rest is as easy as a drag and drop on your computer or touch/copy and paste on your mobile.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you update or change passwords on your laptop, be sure to copy the ENTIRE password database file to your mobile (if you're using it there as well). If you don't, you won't be able to log on to whatever account for which you changed the password.

Pros: Double click copy password

Overall: I have been using KeePass since I started working and in every company I've ever worked at. Recently we moved to Pleasant Password Server to have 2 token authentications and only because it is compatible with KeePass. Being able to continue using the UI we have become accustomed to is brilliant.

Pros: That the software is available to install on a USB flash drive so that I can carry it with me and use it on any computer.

Cons: Wow, hard to find my least favorite thing. Maybe that it isn't as user-friendly as some software but, it really isn't complicated and any negative is totally worth it for the functionality it provides.

Overall: I can't even tell you how many different username and passwords I have. I don't need to know because I use KeePass and it securely keeps all of that information for me. I can make sure that all of my accounts that require login access have completely unique login credentials to keep my accounts secure and safe. I am extremely happy with this Open Source software.

Comments: I've been using KeePass since 2013 and it is now a tool that I can't live without, either in my personal or my professional lives (IT Pro). Would be great if I could open it with a simple whisper :-)
