Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your website’s FTP password, online passwords (like website member account), etc. The list of keeping these passwords are endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem. A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, website, etc. Unimaginable.

The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).
- Strong Security – KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithm to encrypt its password databases. Both of these ciphers are regarded as being very secure. AES e.g. became effective as a U.S. Federal government standard and is approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) for top secret information.
- Multiple User Keys – One master password decrypts the complete database.
- Portable and No Installation Required, Accessibility – KeePass is portable: it can be carried on an USB stick and runs on Windows systems without being installed.
