Our Review:

Password Safe is open-source software designed by Bruce Schneier for local password storage. Using a master password, you can unlock and access your list of usernames and passwords with unlimited entries.

The application provides an auto-type function that automates the entering of username and password into a web form, even though it is not well integrated into browsers. The data file is secure and encrypted using the Twofish algorithm with a 256 bit key.

Upon installing the application, you have an option to choose the installation type, either Regular (which uses the Registry) or Green (which is for disk-on-key and does not use the host Registry).

The application is also ported to run on Android mobile system and you can use it when you're on the move with your Android mobile. Password files can be synced from cloud services using the companion PasswdSafe Sync app.
