KeePassX: multiplatform password vault

keepassx_compIf you find it hard to remember all your passwords the password manager KeePassX will help you out. You can leave all your passwords behind a master generated key file and use them when you need them. No need to memorize anything. Works on Linux, Windows, Mac. Available in synaptic on Ubuntu. It’s a very popular and handy app on Linux as well. You can create different groups and choose separate icons for each group. Search is also supported. The¬†database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key.

It also has a very strong password generator based on the algorithm you choose if you cannot come up with a complex one yourself.

To install on Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get install keepassx

OR you can install the latest version using:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:keepassx/daily
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install keepassx

Note that If you have a database file from the older version of KeePassX you need to import it into KeePassX2.
