KeepassX: Password Keeping Powerhouse

21 July 2012Entry by

Can’t seem to remember all your passwords and prefer convenient password keepers? Try Password Safe. Too simple? Then KeepassX is what you might want.

The premise of KeepassX is the same as with Password Safe: it stores all your usernames and passwords into a single encrypted database, so you’ll only need to remember a single key to access your whole list. It is just as cross-platform and runs almost everywhere. However, KeepassX is Password Safe on steroids.

The amount of features is huge. Keepass supports groups, exporting, different encryption levels, URLs for your desired websites, custom icons, attachments, expiration dates, list sorting, export-import with several formats available and much, much more under the settings. Those coming from Password Safe can import it’s database into Keepass as well, the formats are compatible.

The price for much of the power is the interface: the porters didn’t seem to adapt the huge GUI for the N900’s screen. The interface is pressed down, taking it’s space. This doesn’t stop the program from being useable, but it sure makes it hard to see what’s written on the buttons and makes it hard to hit them as well. After a while, the main menu becomes a huge mess.

That aside, KeepassX is a great and very powerful password-storing app. It is only available through Extras-Devel, so if you want to try it out yourself make sure to enable the repository only once, disable it after you fetch the app.
