KeePass Password Safe 2.52


KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

KeePass is really free, and more than that: it is open source (OSI certified). You can have a look at its full source and check whether the encryption algorithms are implemented correctly.

KeePass features:

  • Strong Security
  • Multiple User Keys
  • Portable and No Installation Required, Accessibility
  • Export To TXT, HTML, XML and CSV Files
  • Import From Many File Formats

  • Auto-Type, Global Auto-Type Hot Key and Drag&Drop
  • Intuitive and Secure Clipboard Handling
  • Searching and Sorting
  • Multi-Language Support
  • Strong Random Password Generator

Changes from 2.51 to 2.52:

New Features

  • Added 'Copy Initial Password' command in the tools menu of the entry dialog; it copies (to the clipboard) the password that was current when the dialog was opened.
  • When multiple entries are selected (containing at least one attachment), the number of attachments is now displayed in the 'Attachments' submenu of the entry menu.
  • Added option 'Alt. item background color' (supporting the states 'Off', 'On, default color' and 'On, custom color'); this combines the previous two options 'Use alternating item background colors' and 'Custom alt. item color'.
  • Comment placeholders ({C:...}) may now contain balanced braces.
  • In the auto-type entry selection dialog, values in the 'Sequence - Comments' column are dereferenced now.
  • The time when the password of an entry was last changed is now displayed in the entry dialog on the 'History' tab page.
  • The {FIREFOX} placeholder and the 'URL(s)' menu ('Open with ...' commands) now support detecting the Microsoft Store version of Firefox (in addition to the regular versions).
  • Added support for importing 1Password 8.7 1PUX files.
  • Added support for importing Key Folder 1.22 XML files.
  • Sticky Password XML import: added support for importing groups and expiry dates.

  • TrlUtil: added workaround for .NET tab control focus bug.


  • Moved the command 'Save Attached File(s) To' into the 'Attachments' submenu of the entry menu and renamed it to 'Save File(s) To'.
  • The command for saving attached files is now available only if at least one of the selected entries has at least one attachment.
  • The {APPACTIVATE ...} auto-type command now ignores the options 'Cancel auto-type when the target window changes' and 'Cancel auto-type when the target window title changes'.
  • {APPACTIVATE ...} auto-type command: if the specified window does not exist or cannot be focused, auto-type is aborted now.
  • Unified creation of fields with indices.
  • Improved database modification state and UI updating after imports/synchronizations.
  • In the master key creation/prompt dialogs, the [OK] button is now disabled when checking the 'Key file/provider' check box and selecting '(None)' in the combo box.
  • Improved drop-down menu width adjustment for certain combo boxes in the options dialog.
