Description of KeePass 2.19

Easy to use password manager
KeePass is a free, open source, light-weight and easy-to-use password manager for Windows and mobile devices. You can store your passwords in highly-encrypted databases, which can only be unlocked with one master password and/or a key file. A database consists of only one file that can be transferred from one computer to another easily. The program supports password groups, in which you can sort your passwords into.

You can drag-n-drop passwords into almost any other window. The auto-type feature types your login information into other windows automatically (just press a hot key). Fast copying passwords or user names to the Windows clipboard is possible by just double-clicking on the specific field in the password list.

KeePass can import data from various formats like CSV, CodeWallet TXT and CounterPanes PwSafe. The password list can be exported to various formats (including TXT, HTML, XML and CSV files). The password list can of course also be printed (complete database or only current view).

Searching and sorting the password database is possible. KeePass ships with a strong random password generator (you can define the possible output characters, length, etc.).

Editor's review for KeePass

It seems that everywhere you turn on the web you need to enter a user name and password, even if you are just heading to a media site to watch a pre-taped television show. In fact, even shopping sites ask you to log in before you can view their wares. At first, it may seem easy enough to create passwords and user IDs, but after awhile it can get quite confusing to remember which one goes where, especially given the fact that for your own security you should change your passwords for every account periodically. This is where the KeePass software comes into play.

When it comes to email, website accounts, online banking, and other accounts that contain your personal information it is vital that you protect your personal details and security by avoiding the easy choice of using only one password. After all, if you only use one password for every account, and a fraudster figures it out by getting into your email, they will be able to access every account you have. In fact, cases like this are why identity fraud is on the rise and products such as the KeePass are so important.

The KeePass program is a solution to managing every one of your passwords in a very secure manner acting as your password manager. The software allows you to put each of your passwords into a database that is locked with a key that only you know. Thus, you only have to know the key file in order to access the database, but the databases are encrypted so that they cannot be broken into from the outside. In a way, the program is a bank vault for the virtual world.

The best part about the KeePass program is that it is free open source software, which means that everyone has access to one of the best security programs out there free of cost. Not only does the software encrypt all data, but it also allows files to be exported and imported in multiple formats, supports time fields for entries, is available with multi-language support, offers a user friendly query search, and has built in database capabilities that make grouping easy.

If this is not enough, the fact that it also has a random password generator built in as an extra perk to help you along makes the software something to look into right away. After all, why remain vulnerable online when you can safely and securely store your personal information in one highly secure location.

What is new in version 2.19

• New generic CSV importer (now supports multi-line fields, '' as escape character, field & record separators and the text qualifier can be specified, white space characters can be removed from the beginning/end of fields, the fields and their order can be defined, supported fields now are group name & standard fields like e.g. title & custom strings & times & ignore column, the first row can be ignored, KeePass initially tries to guess the fields and their order based on the first row).
• Native master key transformations are now computed in two threads on 64-bit systems, too; on dual/multi core processors this results in almost twice the performance as before (by doubling the amount of rounds you'll get the same waiting time as in 2.18, but the protection against dictionary and guessing attacks is doubled).
• New XML configuration and translation deserializer to improve the startup performance.
• Added option to require a password repetition only when hiding using asterisks is enabled (enabled by default).
• Entry attachments can now be renamed using in-place label editing (click on an already selected item to show an edit box).
• Empty entry attachments can now be created using 'Attach' -> 'Create Empty Attachment'.
• Sizes of entry attachments are now shown in a column of the attachments list in the entry editing dialog.
• Added {ENV_PROGRAMFILES_X86} placeholder (this is %ProgramFiles(x86)%, if it exists, otherwise %ProgramFiles%).
• Added auto-type option 'An entry matches if one of its tags is contained in the target window title'.
• URLs in HTML exports are now linkified.
• Import modules may now specify multiple default/equivalent file extensions (like e.g. 'htm' and 'html').
• Added support for reading texts encoded using UTF-32 Big Endian.
• Enhanced text encoding detection (now detects UTF-32 LE/BE and UTF-16 LE/BE by zeros, improved UTF-8 detection, ...).
• Added zoom function for images in internal data viewer.
• Drop-down image buttons in the entry editing dialog are now marked using small black triangle overlays.
• Added support for loading key files from URLs.
• Controls in the options dialog are now disabled when the options are enforced (using an enforced configuration file).
• If KeePass is started with the '-debug' command line option, KeePass now shows a developer-friendly error message when opening a database file fails.
• Added 'Wait for exit' property in the 'Execute command line / URL' trigger action.
• The 'File exists' trigger condition now also supports URLs.
• Added two file closing trigger events (one raised before and one after saving the database file).
• Plugins: added file closing events.
• Plugins: added events (AutoType.Sequence*) that allow plugins to provide auto-type sequence suggestions.
• Added workaround to support loading data from version information files even when they have incorrectly been decompressed by a web filter.
• Added workarounds for '°', '|' and '£' .NET SendKeys issues.
• Added workaround for topmost window .NET/Windows issue (the 'Always on Top' option now works even when switching to a different window while KeePass is starting up).
• Added workaround for Mono dialog event ordering bug.
• Added workaround for Mono clipboard bugs on Mac OS X.
• KPScript: added 'MoveEntry', 'GetEntryString' and 'GenPw' commands.
• KPScript: added '-refx-UUID' and '-refx-Tags' entry identification parameters.
