KeePass for Password Management

What is KeePass

KeePass is a favorite free open-source password manager, which helps you manage your passwords securely.

You can store all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master password. So you only need to remember one single master password to unlock the database with all your passwords.

The database is encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

For more information, see the official website.

Download KeePass for Free

Make sure you always download KeePass only from its official website.

You can use the standard installer, or you can also download a portable version which does not require any installation.

We recommend downloading the KeePass Edition 2.x as it supports more features.

Create New KeePass Database

First create a new password database where you will store all your passwords.

Start by clicking “File – New…” in the main menu.

Create a new password database

Enter master password

Enter “Database name” and click “OK”.

Create New Entries / Passwords in the KeePass Database

You can simply add your passwords by clicking “Edit – Add Entry…” in the main menu.

Add new entry

Because the password is generated by KeePass, you can keep it or enter a password of your choice.

In this example, we will create “LEDGER-NANO-S.dat” (VeraCrypt encrypted backup) entry, and we will enter MY-PASSWORD-123 as a password.

Confirm new entryWe can display our password by clicking on the icon on the right side (3 dots).

Using KeePass Passwords

And that’s it!

Every time we need to use the password, we just right click on the entry and choose “Copy Password”.

Copy password

Then we paste the password we just copied wherever we need.
