KeePass is absolutely essential for keeping your passwords secure and unique.

Manufacturer’s Description

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.). The program can be translated into other languages very easily (over 34 languages are available). It has a plugin framework; many plugins provide additional functionality like backup features, network features, ...; they are available from the KeePass website.
