    Thanks again, definitely makes my lif easier 🙂

    Thanks for your application – very handy to use under Linux and Windows. I use it in my daily work and it really helps to keep in order dozens of accounts and other info.
    Still, there’s one drawback: inability to use Hot Keys. I.e. I cannot open KeePassX window without mouse. For people that got used to use only keyboard (without mouse) this really slows down working process.
    It would be great if you considered adding such a feature like “Open KeePassX window by Hot Keys” to your application.
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for this wonderful application. I’m using XP and Mac OS X and it would be great to make *.kdbx support. That way i don’t need to export it from XP to use it on Mac, and the Customized icons will be in the database.

    thank you

  6. Benno says:

    Thanks for this software. I have been using it since Windows XP. I switched to Mac 4 years ago, and found this software, which I use and depend on since then.

    Thank you very much for this wonderful piece software. I use KeePassX since 3 years and and you still develop and support the program! Most of the single maintainer open source software is dead after some years, but KeePassX is still alive and _the best_ password manager for Linux.

  8. Sammy says:

    Than you very much for this wonderful piece of software. I can’t live without it.

    This wonderful program help me to switch now finally full to Linux because it let me use all me passwords cross-platform.
    Also works with portable Keepass and same database so never have to miss my passwords anywhere.

    Keep it up 😉

  10. Will there be support for the new KeePass 2.0+ .kbdx files anytime soon?

    Very good password manager.

    Another request about KeePass v2.x compatability.

    This program works wonders. I use it daily between work (Windows) and home (Linux). At the moment, I keep the data on a USB key. However, I’d like to upgrade to Keepass v2 because of the ability to keep separate databases synchronised (either between physical locations or via a plug-in that allows synchronisation to an online resourse). However, v2.x uses a new database structure.

    I’d like to know if the current version of KeePassX can read/write/use the newer database structure of the KeePass v2.x. Any clarifications or notification about a suspected timeline to acheive this would be most appreciated.

    Best application ever, but that miss on iphone 🙁

  14. Alberto says:

    very useful application, the best I’ve tried

  15. maik says:


    how can i use the new keepass 2.0.8 database file (*.kdbx). Is there any new status?

  16. LS says:

    What a great application! I’ve been using it daily for a year or more on OS X. It is one of the handiest utilities I’ve ever downloaded.

  17. ivan says:

    Who wants to use .kbdx db in KeePassX: Run KeePass _2_ (under Windows), go to File → Export… → select «KeePass KBD (1.x)». You’ll get .kbd file, which may be opened in KeePassX.

    OSX RESIZE ISSUE Solution:

    In OSX, the KeePassX resize handle won’t appear in the bottom right corner if you have the Status Bar turned off. Go to View make sure Status Bar is checked. Once it is, the resize handle will appear and will work normally.

    Es genial que sigan adelante con esta gran aplicación. no tengo quejas en xp o mac os x; felicidades.

  20. alex says:


    i use keepass since 5 or more years, last 3 years on linux. (keepassx)
    its a great program, many more people should use it.
    i often recommend it to other people.

    This small wonderfull application is very useful, I’m really kind of poweruser. There’s only one thing I miss (or I don’t know how to enable it):

    If I click on the small icon in Apple’s menu bar then I would like to have that KeyPassX is shown on top of all other windows.

    I often face the situation that KeyPassX is burried under a stack of other application windows and I have to use CMD+TAB to put it into foreground (alternatively, I can click on the icon in the Dock).

  22. Nugar says:

    Another request for kdbx compatibility. I use Ubuntu exclusively and would like the benefits of the KeePass 2.x version.

    But quite frankly, running it via Mono doesn’t work well, so I’d prefer to use KeePassX if possible with the same option.

    Thank you guys for making this available!

  23. Andreas says:

    Wonderful application! Very nice that the file format is compatible with the Windows version of KeePass. Thanks for keeping up development. I use in on Mac OS X Leopard (now Snow Leopard).

  24. Jim Lippard says:

    Still seeing crashes on first open in Snow Leopard (both 10.6 and 10.6.1). Any workaround?
