What is KeePass? - 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. etc. etc. The list is 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.

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. 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.
  • The complete database is encrypted, not only the password fields. So, your user names, notes, etc. are encrypted, too.
  • SHA-256 is used as password hash. SHA-256 is a 256-bit cryptographically secure one-way hash function. Your master password is hashed using this algorithm and its output is used as key for the encryption algorithms.
  • In contrast to many other hashing algorithms, no attacks are known yet against SHA-256.
  • Protection against dictionary and guessing attacks: by transforming the final master key very often, dictionary and guessing attacks can be made harder.
  • In-Memory Passwords Protection: Your passwords are encrypted while KeePass is running, so even when the operating system caches the KeePass process to disk, this wouldn't reveal your passwords anyway.
  • [2.x] Protected In-Memory Streams: When loading the inner XML format, passwords are encrypted using a session key.
  • Security-Enhanced Password Edit Controls: KeePass is the first password manager that features security-enhanced password edit controls. None of the available password edit control spies work against these controls. The passwords entered in those controls aren't even visible in the process memory of KeePass.
  • The master key dialog can be shown on a secure desktop, on which almost no keylogger works. Auto-Type can be protected against keyloggers, too.

Q: How do I download KeePass Professional Edition?

A: Just click the download icon located on the KeePass Professional Edition page to download the Download Manager. Once you have run the Download Manager, it will guide you through the downloading and installation of the software you requested.

Q: What is the Download Manager?

A: The Download Manager is a program that facilitates the downloading and installation of the software you desire. In using the Download Manager, you may be shown ads or given the opportunity to download other programs that might be of interest to you. You are under no obligation to download any of these items, and can use the Download manager strictly to guide you through the downloading of the software you desire.

Q: I downloaded KeePass Professional Edition but it doesn’t work! What do I do?

A: Install or reinstall the program. First, re-launch the Download Manager by double-clicking the icon in your download folder. Once you open the Download Manager, follow the steps to download the program again, making sure to follow each step on the screen. If the program still will not work, try re-downloading the Download Manager.

Q: My installation didn’t work. I can’t find the installation file.
Where is it?

A: If you cannot find the file, it may be because:

  • A corrupted installation file or a bad download. To fix this, simply download the file and install again.
  • A blocked installation or download. Check to be sure that your Windows settings are allowing your program to download or install.
  • The file is currently installing. Check in your system tray to see if the DownloadIQ program is still running. If it is, just wait for it to finish installing your download.
  • The program may have already installed. Check your “Programs” bar under the “Start” button and check if the program is there.

If none of these solutions work, simply run the Download Manager again so that you can download the file and reinstall it.

Q: How do I uninstall (remove) software from my computer?

A: There are two ways to uninstall your program:

Most programs can be uninstalled using the Windows “Add/Remove Programs” utility that can be found in “Start menu\Control Panel” or “Start menu\Settings\Control Panel”. Here you will see a list of programs that are currently installed on your computer. Scroll down the list until you see the title of the program you wish to remove. Select it and choose to remove the program.

If you cannot find your program in the list, you will need to remove it via the “Programs” in your Start menu. Move through the list until you see the title of the program you wish to remove. Select it and look for an “Uninstall” utility.

Q: What does “corrupt file” mean?

A: A “corrupt file” means that the file you downloaded is broken and unlikely to work. The file is not dangerous, it is just broken and you may have to re-download it. There are a number of reasons this could happen, the most common being an interruption to your Internet connection while the download was in progress. In these cases we suggest that you retry your download.

Q: What is “Shareware”?

A: The software available for free download at DownloadApe is licensed in a number of different ways. “Shareware” licensed programs (sometimes referred to as “Free to Try,” “Free Trial” or “Try Before You Buy”) offer some type of trial, this can be time or function limited. Once you’ve tried a shareware program, you know whether it will meet your needs before you pay for it. If you like a shareware program and want to continue using it after the end of a trial period (typically 30 days), you have to purchase the full unrestricted version. If on the other hand you do not wish to keep the software, you can just uninstall it.

Q: What is a “Demo”?

A: “Demo” programs are usually meant to give you a small taste of a large program. They usually contain only selected parts of the program while giving you ample functionality, allowing you to decide if it will suit your needs.

Q: What is “Commercial Software”?

A: Commercial software is software being developed by a business which aims to make money from the use of the software. In most of cases it is a demonstrational copy released by the manufacturer to entice customers to buy their product. Commercial demos will usually only work for a short period of time and/or have certain functions disabled.

Q: What is “Freeware”?

A: “Freeware” programs are completely free to use and keep. They are either distributed for the love of humanity, for fame, or as stripped down versions of programs that do cost money. Always check the license agreement if you consider using the application for anything than your personal use.

Q: What are “Adware” and “Spyware”?

A: “Adware” (advertising supported software) is a product that is available for free and in exchange displays advertising banners within the software interface. Instead of you having to pay for the software, the company creates revenue by selling advertising space in the software product.

“Spyware” is software that and hides itself somewhere on your computer monitoring the behavior of your activity on the web and passing this information on to advertisers. Spyware is often installed onto your PC when you download and install other software published as “Freeware” or as “Adware.”

DownloadApe protects its programs from spyware and adware in a number of ways. However, we strongly recommend that you read the end-user license agreement very carefully before you install any program. Often buried in the license agreement will be a disclaimer saying that information about you and your browsing habits will be sent to third party advertising company.

Q: What is “Malware” or “Badware”?

A: Malware (for “malicious software”) is software designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system without the owner’s informed consent. It includes computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, intrusive adware, and other unwanted software. Malware should not be confused with defective software, that is, software which has a legitimate purpose but contains harmful bugs.
