Password Safe is a free and open source password manager. Password Safe is able to store your usernames and passwords in a secure “safe” protected by a master password, also providing an easy feature for copy and pasting your username and password into the various websites that you need them for.

When you first start the program, you must set up a “safe” in which you are able to store all of the passwords that you want to keep safe within the free password manager. You simply set up a master password (which you must remember) for the little database and then you are away.

The initial master password entry screen for Password Safe.

From here, you can begin the very simple process of inputting your actual usernames and passwords into the free password manager. This is a very simple process and allows you to keep track of a lot of passwords, meaning you needn’t have to struggle to remember what you set up when you signed up to the particular website. It is the perfect antidote for those with a poor memory.

Keyboard shortcuts can also be used to copy and paste usernames and passwords from the free password manager into the input boxes on web pages. When copying a username, you can use the Ctrl + U shortcut and, with a password, you can use the Ctrl + C shortcut to get the data onto your clipboard so it can be pasted.

So to conclude, Password Safe is a clever bit of software that enables users to keep a record of all of the information they use to get into various websites. It does it securely and easily making it an excellent free password manager that I would happily recommend to absolutely anyone. If you want to instead store your passwords online, you can use Clipperz.
