KeePassXC 2.6.2


KeePassXC is a community fork of KeePassX, a native cross-platform port of KeePass Password Safe, with the goal to extend and improve it with new features and bugfixes to provide a feature-rich, fully cross-platform and modern open-source password manager.

KeePassXC currently uses the KeePass 2.x (.kdbx) password database format as its native file format in versions 3.1 and 4. Database files in version 2 can be opened, but will be upgraded to a newer format. KeePass 1.x (.kdb) databases can be imported into a .kdbx file, but this process is one-way.

Main Features

  • Secure storage of passwords and other private data with AES, Twofish or ChaCha20 encryption
  • Cross-platform, runs on Linux, Windows and macOS without modifications
  • File format compatibility with KeePass2, KeePassX, MacPass, KeeWeb and many others (KDBX 3.1 and 4.0)
  • SSH Agent integration
  • Auto-Type on all supported platforms for automagically filling in login forms
  • Key file and YubiKey challenge-response support for additional security
  • TOTP generation (including Steam Guard)
  • CSV import from other password managers (e.g., LastPass)
  • Command line interface
  • Stand-alone password and passphrase generator
  • Password strength meter
  • Custom icons for database entries and download of website favicons
  • Database merge functionality
  • Automatic reload when the database was changed externally
  • Browser integration with KeePassXC-Browser for Google Chrome, Chromium, Vivaldi, and Mozilla Firefox.
