What Was That Password Again?


February 19, 2014 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Security



In today’s online and digital society, we are coming across more and more websites and situations where we need to have a password or PIN to access our accounts.

I found out very early in my online experiences that it is not a great idea to have the same password or PIN because if one of your accounts is compromised, all your other accounts may also be.

In the past when I registered with various online websites, I wrote every username and password on a piece of paper and kept it in a safe place for when I needed it. However the safe place was so safe that I forgot where it was. Oh what a head ache!

Any way I eventually discovered a great little PASSWORD MANAGER named KeyPass.

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 one 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).

Is it really free?
Yes, KeePass is really free, and more than that: it is open source (OSI certified).
