KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in a database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

    There’s also a portable version of KeePass which is particularly useful. You can sync the information across multiple computers using Live Mesh, which is really convenient. Works fine on Windows 7 too.

  2. James, thanks for the tip. I suppose it makes sense to use a key file if you store the database on a remote host. What I like about KeePass is this Two-Channel Auto-Type Obfuscation. It seems to protect against keyloggers. However, I somehow still prefer Locknote because of its simplicity and because it allows me to store all kinds of confidential information.

    Did you know you can attach (embed) files in your Keepass database? Just thinking about storing confidential information. I’ll have to give Locknote a look.

    Kindest regards,

    Oscar McBride
