KeePass is a highly secure and popular open-source password manager used to store and manage passwords, usernames, and other sensitive information in a secure manner. It was developed by Dominik Reichl and is available for various platforms, including Windows, macOS, Linux, and mobile devices.

One of KeePass's key features is its robust security. It employs strong encryption algorithms (e.g., AES, Twofish) to safeguard stored data, ensuring that only authorized users with the master password can access their passwords. The master password serves as the primary key to unlock the encrypted database.

KeePass provides a user-friendly interface, allowing users to organize their passwords in a structured manner using folders and categories. Additionally, it offers password generation tools, helping users create complex and unique passwords to enhance security.

The software enables users to quickly search for specific passwords and offers features like auto-type, which allows automatic filling of login forms for websites and applications. KeePass also supports plugins, extending its functionality and making it customizable to meet individual needs.

Moreover, KeePass emphasizes portability and accessibility by allowing users to store their encrypted password database on various storage mediums, such as local drives, USB drives, or cloud storage. This allows users to access their passwords from different devices while maintaining security and privacy.

Overall, KeePass is a reliable and secure password management solution that helps users keep their sensitive information organized and protected.

  • Added option in the proxy configuration dialog to use the user's default credentials (provided by the system).
  • {FIREFOX} placeholder: if no regular Firefox is installed, KeePass now looks for Firefox ESR.
  • {PICKCHARS} placeholder: the Conv-Fmt option now supports all combinations of '0', 'A', 'a' and '?'; '?' skips a combobox item.
  • Added {BEEP X Y} auto-type command (where X is the frequency in hertz and Y the duration in milliseconds).
  • Added optional 'Attachments (Count)' entry list column.
  • Added Ctrl+Insert shortcut as alternative for Ctrl+C in the entry list of the main window.
  • Added shortcut keys for 'Copy Entries' (Ctrl+Shift+C) and 'Paste Entries' (Ctrl+Shift+V).
  • Added some access keys in various dialogs.
  • In the field reference dialog, the field in which the reference will be inserted is now selected as source field by default.
  • Added UUID uniqueness check.
  • Added support for importing Passphrase Keeper 2.60 HTML files (in addition to the already supported 2.50 and 2.70 formats).
  • The path of the local configuration file can now be changed using the '-cfg-local:' command line parameter.
  • Plugins can now access the KeePass resources (images, icons, etc.) through the IPluginHost interface.
  • Added a few workarounds for external window manipulations before the main window has been fully constructed.
  • Added workaround for .NET gradient drawing bug; 'Blue Carbon' dialog banners are now drawn correctly on high DPI.
