Password Safe 3.32 Free Download

Password Safe Latest Free Download
Rating: 4.5 - ‎Free - ‎ Windows
Password Safe is now an open source project. As of September 24, 2013, the latest Windows version is 3.32. A Linux version is currently in beta.
Various third-party ports, clones, and readers are also available. I haven't looked at any of these programs, and can't vouch for their compatibility or their security.
Many computer users today have to keep track of dozens of passwords: for network accounts, online services, premium web sites. Some write their passwords on a piece of paper, leaving their accounts vulnerable to thieves or in-house snoops. Others choose the same password for different applications, which makes life easy for intruders of all kinds.
With Password Safe, a free utility designed by Bruce Schneier, users can keep their passwords securely encrypted on their computers. A single Safe Combination--just one thing to remember--unlocks them all.
Password Safe protects passwords with the Twofish encryption algorithm, a fast, free alternative to DES. The program's security has been thoroughly verified by Counterpane Labs under the supervision of Bruce Schneier, author of Applied Cryptography and creator of the Twofish algorithm.
Password Safe features a simple, intuitive interface that lets users set up their password database in minutes. You can copy a password just by double-clicking, and paste it directly into your application. Best of all, Password Safe is completely free: no license requirements, shareware fees, or other strings attached.

Password Safe is a strong contender in a large field of similar applications. The irritation of its obtuse interface is lessened by the inclusion of a thorough Help file and a healthy stable of features.
The arrangement of the icons on the toolbars and lack of text under the icons meant having to hunt for the right tools. However, after wading through the interface, the various functions all seemed well conceived and well executed. The capability to install in "portable mode" proved to be an extremely useful feature. Password creation is also another strong point, with the capability to tailor the creation feature. When adding a new entry, the password "strength" check could be more aggressive, instead of waiting until final submission of the entry, but at least the program let users continue even if the password they've entered is deemed "weak." The inclusion of a KeePass database import function is a plus for users of that software, and though there is no KeePass export, there are various other import and export formats available.
During use, the program was responsive and did not crash, and all the features we tested performed as expected. The installer (in desktop mode) placed an icon on the desktop without asking, and uninstalling the program left some items behind in the install directory. Database encryption and the portable-mode installation option make this a fine choice for managing all your various passwords.
