Long ago and probably here at TidBITS, I found a reference to a password manager called KeePassXC that EFF seems to be endorsing. However, I could only find one instance of “KeePass” in TidBITS Talk, and that was just a passing reference, so maybe I heard about it somewhere else. It’s free, which is nice, but even nicer is that it does not have a subscription model. Does anyone have something good or bad to say about this program?
I’m partial to EFF, although I do wish the page linked above would confirm that it is published by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. If I’m misguided in my belief that EFF is somewhat better than average as an advocate for the little people, please educate me.
In another digression in the first post of this topic (how many people derail their own threads, and on the first post at that?), I was going to append this to the thread Password Managers, but the software told me the last activity there was ten months ago and suggested that maybe I didn’t really want to post there. I started this new thread, and the software told my topic was similar to two existing threads (neither of which seemed similar to me) and suggested maybe I should post in one of them. Adam, please merge this if it’s appropriate, but add a comment about when to start a new thread and when to resurrect an old thread. Thanks.
