If you need to store and manage your passwords in a secure way, KeePass could be what you need.

WHAT IS KEEPASS

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way.

It is available for windows, OSx, Linux, iOS, Android and more. 

 

 

WHAT WE NEED

In a few words you have to download the portable version of KeePass program, Launch it,  create a new db using a complex master password. System is ready to add new entries.

DONE!

Also, if you need to use KeePass on other devices, you must share the database.

In order to share the database You could use FTP or Dropbox or maybe use other ways (see the official website for more details).

To add new features in KeePass  you need to install a plugin. Usually it's easy, just copy the dll file in the folder program and when you will open the KeePass you will have the new plugin ready to use.

The following table shows some useful steps.

DOWNLOAD

I suggest to download the portable version.

 HOW TO USE IT

  1. Unzip the portable
  2. Launch KeePass
  3. Create your own database (suggest: create a folder named db inside the KeePass folder)

note: use a complex master password using letters, numbers and why not pharentesis, underscores, minus. This is the main password and no one have to know it. Do not write it in any place but try to remeber it. for example use a complex sentence as password.

for example : I_Would_L1k3(W1n) could be a good password and easy to remember.

Another suggestion for the most important password you record in the database: do not write in clear, but change a few letters or numbers using your method. If you apply the same method will be very easy to find the real password.

For example to store the password 65AD73Z for your Remote Banking you could be apply the simple method to increase or descreese the 1st and last letter or all letters or only the number or put the password inside the pharentesis or jsut start with a pharentesis and so on...

Using always the same method for all password will be easy to recover your real password.

For example, appling the method "increase all" the password 65AD73Z could be stored as 76BE84A.

the number 6 will come 7,  5 will come 6, the letter A will come B and so on ... and Z will come A.
