Keepass wins awards for security and usability

Article for: Everyone considering or using a password safe
Difficulty: easy
Importance: Useful for choosing a good password safe

Here are some reasons I feel very secure using and recommending Keepass.

  • Nov 2018: Keepass is the recommended password manager of the German Federal Office for Information Security.
  • Recommended by the Swiss Federal Office of Information Technology, Systems and Telecommunication and the Federal IT Steering Unit. It is installed by default not only on all my computers, but on all PCs of the federal administration of Switzerland.
  • The European Commission's Free and Open Source Software Auditing (EU-FOSSA 1) project audited Keepass. They found no security issues.
  • Keepass is participating in the EU-FOSSA 2 project, requesting that hackers try to find vulnerabilities.
  • Over 50 magazines or websites have given recommendations or editor's choice awards to Keepass.
