Pros: The ability to organize your passwords by folder (Or server or whichever suits your needs) with user-selectable icons.

Cons: No app? Would be nice if it wasn't strictly PC-based but also accessible from a mobile device, cloud-stored or otherwise.

Overall: All passwords centralized in one place, auto-suggest for complex passwords.

Pros: This software has made it extremely easy to manage all of our company logins. We have hundreds of websites, usernames, and passwords that we use on a daily basis. This allows all of our employees to access these and to update them when they change. It has been a huge way to save time and to secure our sensitive information.

Cons: The only issue that I have ever had with this program is if more than one person is in it and they make a change, it doesn't update while you are in it. You have to close the program and reopen for the changes to apply.

Overall: Excellent and secure way to save all your login information.

Pros: Definitely like how it dose not put the passwords in the cloud like other password management software, but it sacrifices convenience in the process. It's perfect for employees that just can't remember all our passwords while at their workstation.

Cons: This truly is the bare minimum that you need for password management software. Other software is more feature rich with the ability to save to the cloud

Pros: If you'd like to manage your passwords locally without any interference from the cloud, it'll be difficult to find a better solution than KeePass (that's also free!). Cloud password storage is all about convenience, not security. This isn't to say that cloud-based password managers aren't secure, but keeping them out of the cloud all together is simply more secure. KeePass is simple enough to use, and there's really no reason in today's security breachathon age that EVERYONE shouldn't be using a password manager like KeePass.

Cons: The UI could be better, but I will take focus on features, functionality and security over form any day.

Overall: A free password manager that I can keep out of the cloud.

Pros: It makes storing passwords very easy. You don't have to keep all of your different passwords in your mind, what let you to use quite different passwords. Keepass even has a well parametered password-generator function, so you don't have to rely on your own fantasy in this situation. It has time-limited clipboard functionality, you can login with a simple CTRL+V hotkey.

Cons: Sometimes clipboarding features is not working as it is intended. And you have to take care of the local (encrypted) database - if something happens with it (e.g. a hardware failure) you won't be able to log in to those services what you are using.

An excellent way to generate, store, and easily copy/paste passwords.

Pros: Automatically generates passwords for you (if you want), and then stores it securely.
The best part is that when you need to copy/paste your username and password, you just have to click it on the interface and press CTRL+V, and KeePass will automatically enter your username and password in the window that was previously selected.

Cons: This is still a method of storing passwords digitally, so it is still somewhat unsafe, even though it would take a hacker a loooooooooooooong time to break the encryption.

Overall: Secure digital password storage

Pros: Have thoroughly enjoyed this software for safely storing all of those hard to remember passwords. And appreciate that it helps create passwords.

Cons: Can easily get disorganized if you forget to save anytime you update or change a password. Like the 10 second copy and paste timer, but maybe a bit longer than 10 seconds.

Pros: Storing and generating passwords has never been easier. In a time when password security is very important, remembering so many different ones can be a struggle. Key Pass makes it so easy to generate unique passwords and to easily reference them when logging into systems.

Cons: Rather than auto saving new entries, the user must click the save button prior to exiting the program. If you forget, you have just lost your new password. That is a little disapointing.

Overall: It helps make life a little easier.

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: 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: 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.

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.

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.

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.
