KeePassX is an application for people with extremly high demands on secure personal data management. It has a light interface, is cross platform and published under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
KeePassX saves many different information e.g. user names, passwords, urls, attachments and comments in one single database. For a better management user-defined titles and icons can be specified for each single entry. Furthermore the entries are sorted in groups, which are customizable as well. The integrated search function allows to search in a single group or the complete database.
KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.
The complete database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. Therefore the saved information can be considered as quite safe. KeePassX uses a database format that is compatible with KeePass Password Safe. This makes the use of that application even more favourable.
Originally KeePassX was called KeePass/L for Linux since it was a port of Windows password manager Keepass Password Safe. After KeePass/L became a cross platform application the name was not appropriate anymore and therefore, on 22 March 2006 it has been changed.

KeePassX is a solid password management tool that allows you to safely store your passwords. The fact that you can import files from other applications and that it's an open source product is surely a plus. If you're interested in securely managing your passwords, you should definitely give KeePassX a try.

Despite lacking browser integration and automatic synching across devices, KeePass is a very easy to use password manager.
Storing the database in Dropbox (or similar) works well for synching, and remember that the file is immune from Dropbox spying thanks to the strong encryption applied before uploading). We also found that when used in tandem with a browser’s built-in password manager, we did not find the lack of full browser integration much of an issue.
What you do get with KeePass is a robust and highly secures password manager, that thanks to its open source nature is unlikely to contain any backdoors or other nasty surprises. It’s also completely free!
This is a safe and secure password protection and management program with a lot of nice features that's available for free. If you're looking for a way to keep your log-in information safe, KeePass is definitely worth a try.
