Do you have too many passwords kicking around? Can’t remember them all? This seems like the current trend these days and I am by no means spared from this either. The best way to deal with so many passwords is to have… a password manager!! My personal favorite password manager is KeePass. It can be found here.
It is fairly easy to use. After launching the MSI:
Select your language and click OK.
Accept the license agreement. Click Next.
Select your installation folder. Click Next.
Select Full installation. Click Next.
Choose your options. Click Next.
Wait for the installation to complete.
Now you need to create a database to store the passwords. Click File and New.
Enter a master password and repeat it. Select additional options as needed.
When done click OK.
Set any additional database settings and then click on OK.
Now you are ready to create new entries to store your passwords!
You can add a group to organize your passwords.
Or you can add an entry to an existing group.
You can add a title, user name, URL, notes and even set a date for when the password expires. Then enter a password and make sure to repeat it. Quality shows you the strength of the password. You can also generate a random password (icon under the dots).
That was just a snippet of what you can do with KeePass. I’d recommend giving it a shot if you are looking for a password manager.
