KeePass is a free, open-source password manager for enterprise IT techies. The app lets you peek under the hood and inspect it for any back doors. You can tweak and compile it yourself. The KeePass site provides XML examples of how to save locally or to a network share. In other words, this is quasi-developer stuff. Network and desktop admins should have no problem using KeePass, even if they visit XML only occasionally. But this is not for newbies.
KeePass 2 adds the capability to synchronize to a specific URL, so the extensions that were created by third-party developers for synching to the Web are no longer necessary.
KeePass works on Windows 98 all the way through to Windows 8 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems, and Mono, for Linux, Mac OS X, and BSD. Contributors have used it to write iPad, RIM, and Android password manager apps.
