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.
