What do all active web users have in common? Each of them has between 8 to 20 passwords to remember every day. There are a lot of services that help to manage the passwords, and PassPack is one of them. Here you can store your login credentials and also some secure notes and links to the web pages. To access your account you need to enter two passwords — the first one is usual, the second has to be a meaningful sentence. You can then add a button to the browser toolbar and begin adding login info from different websites. The list of accounts is organized using the tags and favorites. Unfortunately, the service lacks many of the features introduced by such apps as LastPass, which has a user client. In particular, PassPack is not able to obtain information about the new password and does not have an auto-generating passwords feature. On the other hand, this solution may be ideal for those who often works from the someone else's computers, changes computers often or does not have rights to install applications on the office computer. PassPack can help not to use the insecure passwords or write them on a piece of paper. The service even can help to disable all the previously created browser buttons. This can help if the user logged in on someone else's computer and forgot to delete the button. The passwords that are stored in the PassPack can be shared. This feature may be handy when the co-workers use the same login on the Facebok page, when your family members need the login info for the pizza site to order one for the dinner etc. Besides passwords sharing is necessary for the freelancers working on the contractor's projects. Of one needs to set up the client's account it is possible to share credentials with the client without requiring him to have a Passpack account.
KeePass is a secure password manager. The application allows you to sort the data by categories. For example, you can set the separate categories for the bank accounts data, email passwords, web projects' login data, etc. All the information in the KeePass database is encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard algorithms (AES (256-bit), Rijndael) and Twofish. The program offers an ability to export data in TXT, HTML, XML, and CSV. For even greater security, KeePass automatically clears the clipboard after a period of time defined in the program settings. KeePass can synchronize data with the other computers and with cloud services, e.g. Dropbox. When the user creates a database, he/she can set the number of cycles to encrypt the master password. Du? to this the brute force protection level is increased. There are some additional levels of authentication in KeePass. It is possible to use the Windows user account and the key file along with the master password. The key file is any file chosen by the user. It could be a picture, mp3 file, etc. You can also use a key file instead of the password, but it is not recommended. The password database consists of an only one file that you can transfer and backup using the integrated manual feature. Using the plugins, you can automate backups and export data to the cloud services. The interface base has a tree-like format; you can create different groups to assign them names, delete them and change as you like. The number of groups is not restricted. This is a distinctive feature of KeePass from paid counterparts, in which, as a rule, groups are already set, and you cannot change them. In KeePass, there is also a possibility to add attachments. The app has a built-in viewer for text, documents and images.
Thousand years ago, I was using KeePass to store my passwords. This is the time before Remote Desktop Manager and Lastpass. Having to type my password hundreds of time every day, to log in remote desktops or ssh sessions, it was a time saver. The good side of KeePass is the fact you own the password database. It’s not on a website you need to trust. The bad side of KeePass is the fact you own the password database. You need to backup it, and synchronize across your computers, what’s a pain! The UI is easy to understand, creating different folders and objects to store your password. There is an auto-type where you enter the window name, and when you do your key combination, KeePass detect the password base on the window name, and type it for you. It works fine for a remote desktop connection where the VM name is the window title, but with the web browser, it becomes hard to maintain. You can start the site from KeePass, and it will auto-fill and log. I think that Cloud-oriented services fit better my needs where I work from both home and office, working with many different computers, with different operating system. I get why people would like to keep the database control, but I think it limits possibilities. The application is free and Open-Source, that can be an advantage, but a disadvantage as well. There is a lot of people who has access to the source code, and may find breaches. It will be fixed, but not everyone has the latest version.

KeePass is an excellent database for keeping client passwords, software license keys, and other sensitive data. Having it on a secure flash drive as a portable application provides access to all data when needed.More about KeePass
