Overall Satisfaction with KeePass

It is used by different departments where administrators need to operate for several customers with different users. Because of security reasons we have to change our password very often. No administrator is able to recall so many different passwords for so many different clients. And the requirement of our clients is a very high level of security.
  • central password for a large password store
  • sharing of password databases within a team
  • automation of entering difficult user/password combinations
  • generation of high level passwords
  • scripting for specific tasks in forms
  • auto-type does not work with specific login dialogs like Pulse Secure
  • great ability to organize users and passwords
  • expiration warning
  • auto-type function
  • master database password
  • fast access to a huge number of users and passwords
  • low storage space needed
  • can be used locally on notebooks and on terminal servers for teams
  • easy to install
  • easy to keep updated
  • individual language configuration
I cannot remember how and why I selected KeePass. But I think it was the possibility to try it as a shareware product first. In the past, there were only the most important features realized in the software (and some stuff I never needed). To see how the software has been developed and improved during the years creates trust in the company that created this nice piece of Software. If the software is able to stay on the market for so many years is also important to create trust in the developer company.

On my iPhone, I use keePassium because I evaluated this as the best current version as a password store on my smartphone. And KeePass is not available for iPhone.

Do you think KeePass delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with KeePass's feature set?


Did KeePass live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of KeePass go as expected?


Would you buy KeePass again?


Compared to the password management in the Firefox browser, Keepass is using a separate database. This database can be backed up separately, stored on a USB stick or something similar. If you have to set up a new Computer, you can use your database easily. I also use KeePass for storing comments to my users (online shopping) in order to remind me of particular information regarding the single online stores. Using KeePass for online shopping makes it easy to create a unique user and password for each online shop. And you can set an expiry date for your password and KeePass reminds you to create a new password.

Using KeePass

300 - System Operators, System Administrator, Consultants, Managers
Because of security reasons we have to change the passwords of our users very often because we access systems of many customers. And security is one of the main requirements we are facing in our job. There is no difference between managers and operators.
2 - There is no real in-house support for KeePass available. All the users help each other or find help on the Internet. KeePass is easy to use and if there are special use-cases where special knowledge is need, you always will find someone who already solved this problem or can help you to solve it.
  • auto-type user and password in login forms
  • select data from a list for special software that requires user related information
  • remind you to renew your passwords that will be soon expire
  • scripting some special ways of auto-type
  • configure usage for specific software with application recognition
  • select specific data from lists stored inside of KeePass
  • the usage of KeePass is limited to the storage of particular data and provisioning this data on demand
  • it is hard to guess the things to come
  • maybe KeePass will develop some innovation that I cannot imagine right now
My very good experience in the past 15 years of usage of KeePass makes it easy to decide for a renewal of this friendship. I was never disappointed and KeePass always meets my expectations. The software runs stable and if there should be a software error, it will be fixed in no time. This is customer satisfaction.
