Publisher's Description:
Password Safe is a free and open-source password manager program for use with Microsoft Windows
Whether the answer is one or hundreds, Password Safe allows you to safely and easily create a secured and encrypted user name/password list. With Password Safe all you have to do is create and remember a single "Master Password" of your choice in order to unlock and access your entire user name/password list.
Security starts with you, the user. Keeping written lists of passwords on scraps of paper, or in a text document on your desktop is unsafe and is easily viewed by prying eyes (both cyber-based and human). Using the same password over and over again across a wide spectrum of systems and web sites creates the nightmare scenario where once someone has figured out one password, they have figured out all your passwords and now have access to every part of your life (system, e-mail, retail, financial, work).


Description From JCDiaz.Net
   Password Safe is a strong competitor to similar applications. The irritation of its obtuse interface is lessened by the inclusion of a thorough Help file and a healthy stable of features.
The arrangement of the icons on the toolbars and lack of text under the icons meant having to hunt for the right tools. However, after wading through the interface, the various functions all seemed well conceived and well executed. The capability to install in "portable mode" proved to be an extremely useful feature. Password creation is also another strong point, with the capability to tailor the creation feature. When adding a new entry, the password "strength" check could be more aggressive, instead of waiting until final submission of the entry, but at least the program let users continue even if the password they've entered is deemed "weak." The inclusion of a KeePass database import function is a plus for users of that software, and though there is no KeePass export, there are various other import and export formats available.
   Password Safe proven to not crash, and all the features tested performed as expected. The installer (in desktop mode) placed an icon on the desktop without asking, and uninstalling the program left some items behind in the install directory. Database encryption and the portable-mode installation option make this a fine choice for managing all your various passwords.
