We have more than 400 machines that we manage and over 1000 users/accounts. Trying to remember all of those service accounts and passwords is difficult especially when each one has to be unique. KeePass does 2 things. First, it helps us store all of those service accounts and passwords in one easy and convenient database. And second, it keeps that database secure so we don't have to worry about anyone peeking where they shouldn't be.
  • Password management is great. It makes it super easy to store and view accounts if we can not remember particular login information.
  • The password generator is great as well! I like that it will generate a very unique and complex password for us.
  • It is nice to know how secure our passwords are when we add a new entry. It lets us know if we need to strengthen them.
  • Viewing of passwords is kind of clunky. Then again I might be doing it wrong to view them. I basically have to "edit" the entry then unmask the password to view it. But like I said, I might be doing it wrong.
  • The import function needs a bit of work. Importing passwords from a browser is just a mass import and it would be nice to have some more granular input.
  • Give me a dark mode!
I was actually recommended this product by a colleague of mine and we have used it ever since. It is well suited for small to large IT departments that have a large number of service accounts and/or online service accounts such as Dropbox, Splashtop, Exchange, etc. For the home user, I would maybe recommend it if he/she wanted to keep track of personal accounts, numbers, recovery codes, etc. But this is mainly more for the business user.

KeePass is a software option that our employees can use to create and store passwords. Due to the need to log into multiple websites and change our passwords frequently, we needed a password manager to both to create and store these passwords.
  • Creates unique passwords for each login that you require.
  • Keeps a local encrypted copy of your passwords on your computer.
  • It is easy to find/look-up login credentials for each login. The user interface is well designed.
  • Keepass is kept locally on your computer. It takes a cloud service in order to keep it current on multiple computers.
  • Some websites do not work with the autofill feature in KeePass. Instead, you will find yourself on the reset password page. KeePass doesn't try to read the website before it pushes the autofill data.
  • The file on your computer is encrypted, but it is local and fairly easy to find on your computer.
It is well suited for people who have a cloud solution like Google Drive or Dropbox for their personal files. The cloud service allows you to keep your KeyPass file up to date across multiple computers. It is less suited to someone who uses random computers. In that case, you would need to use a flash drive to keep your passwords with you.

It was used by the IT department to store sensitive passwords and to allow for more difficult password creation that all admins would have access to if needed.
  • Ease of implementation
  • Ease of management
  • Automatic saving of passwords.
  • Syncing of local databases.
For smaller IT departments or small businesses needing a free password management solution, this is perfect. there is no cost, and it doesn't require a degree to implement. It isn't as great for larger organizations or in organization-wide implementations, but it can work for individual departments within large organizations

It is currently used as the standard individual password management offering across the entire organization. It has reduced user frustration with access, allowing users to securely and robustly store important sensitive/confidential passwords and information without reliance on an external source/service. It also has made it easy for teams to securely store information scoped to their team. Some users use it for repetitive form filling for various web-based requests they find themselves commonly using. This program is straightforward to use, extensible, and very flexible, requiring little to no learning curve for standard use. It can integrate with browsers fairly simply and make the management/addition of new logins quite simple. I recommend this product to friends and colleagues alike.
  • Password management.
  • Automation of repetitive web forms/requests.
  • Native browser integration. Integration is currently done with extensions/add-ons, however.
  • No app-specific UI customization, such as dark mode.
It is well suited to password and secret management, both on an individual and team level. It manages passwords in encrypted files. These files can be stored locally, or on a shared location safely, allowing for robust availability of the information, while still having the contained data secure. Security of the data can be managed through either a master password, a cert/key, or by tying to a specific Windows user and computer, or a combination of any/all of those three options.

KeePass does the job

We are using it to store passwords in the IT department for the development, EDI and infrastructure teams. Although our team is small we have many partners and resources that require a large variety of passwords to be tracked and updated on a regular basis. This allows our team to track all of this in a single location.
  • Password Storage
  • Password Retrieval
  • Synching is clunky
  • Multiple users at one time can cause copnflicts
It works well for storing and retrieving passwords for a small team especially when passwords need to be used by multiple individuals. Also the ability to generate strong passwords automatically is a positive especially for programs that require regular password updates. Prevents accounts getting locked out after password changes or a lot of time passing since last use.

The KeePass application is being used primarily by our Information Technology department. There are a few other users in the organization that use the application, but it is almost exclusively being used by IT. This application helps us to keep track of the numerous random passwords that we have set up for Service accounts (and other account purposes).
  • KeePass offers us a simple to use interface to store our passwords in a centralized location.
  • I particularly like the fact that it allows you to obfuscate the username/password.
  • The feature for copy/paste the credentials is also a very handy ability that helps to save us time.
  • The ability to include URL and expiration dates is also great to have.
  • It also has an option to randomly-generate passwords for you.
  • I don't believe that this is so much a negative, but be sure that you keep your password database saved in a location that is accessible (even during an outage). Failure to do so will make it hard/impossible to recover passwords in the event that your database is unreachable (such as if a network drive failure).
I feel that KeePass is an excellent choice for password management. The application is very easy to use, free and provides a rich feature set that makes it an ideal solution for our organization. The application also can be used for individual purposes, not just for a corporate environment. The ability to create random passwords, mark expiration dates, and provide associated URLs is a massive bonus for our organization. Additionally, the application gives us a higher level of security around password management since we only have to remember a single password. This helps to keep people from writing down or storing sensitive account info in unsecured manners.

My team (specifically) leans on KeePass for secure password management. While our greater organization utilizes some form of encrypted protocol (all G Suite-based), my department frequently handles data that we only trust to be stored locally. When it came to our need for open-source, encrypted local storage of access codes, KeePass hit the nail on the head.
  • First and foremost, KeePass is open source! When it comes to a password management solution, we felt (and continue to feel) at ease knowing that we weren't handing the keys over to a single external facilitator.
  • It's free...forever!
  • You can import password databases from other providers (LastPass, etc.) fairly simply.
  • Lack of a direct mobile solution. There are unofficial ports (my favorite: KeePass2Android), but nothing directly under the KeePass banner.
  • You cannot automatically import username/password combinations from a web browser (though you can import from the majority of other password managers).
  • I personally do not see it as a detractor, but the most frequent feedback I hear is how barren/old the UI is. I view the UI as simplistic and pragmatic, which is exactly what I want in a password manager.
I find KeePass to be best suited to individuals (for both personal and work-related use) or small- to medium-sized businesses/teams. Those that need to locally store sensitive account key/access information, and would like to do so without handing you most precious data to a third-party vendor -- KeePass should be your next (and last) stop.

Alternatively, I would would be surprised to find a large, corporate implementation of KeePass.
