KeePass Password Safe 1.39 Classic / 2.46 Professional

Nowadays, you have to remember many passwords. You need a password to log in to the network, an e-mail account, an FTP password to access your personal site, online passwords to access various sites and services, etc. Also, you must use a different password for each account. Because if you use the same password for everything and everywhere, and someone somehow learns that password, you will have serious problems.

KeePass is an open-source password safe or manager that will help you organize all your passwords in a secure place. You can move all your passwords to one database, which you can “lock” with one master password or disk key.

So you only need to remember a single password or insert a key disk to unlock the entire database. It is encrypted using the best and most widely used encryption algorithms known to date – AES and Twofish.
