The open source password manager KeePass Password Safe has made its way to the BlackBerry and is available as a free BlackBerry download that you can get OTA.
If you are anything like me you have a ton of passwords and remembering the passwords that you use every day isn’t an issue, however, those 48 that you use just once in a while is next to impossible to keep track of. This is where KeePass Password Safe comes in.
KeePass is is completely free as it is an open source application, however, don’t mistake it for your average run of the mill free hack. KeePass is a quality application that, quite honestly, is better than most password managers that you would pay for.
The only real knock that I had was that there just aren’t enough category icons preloaded. You can’t really do anything about that in the current release, however, adding addition icons in the beta of the next version is supported.
KeePass Password Save is really a quality free BlackBerry download and you definitely cannot beat the price.

What are the advantages versus Blackberry’s own “Password Keeper”? I’ve been using “Password Keeper” for quite some time now, and I love it!
The big difference is that there is a desktop component that you can synch your passwords with.
Additionally,there are groups, subgroups, expiring password options, and a ton of other features
This sounds nice, but requires BB OS 4.2.1 many of us have older devices (9 months old! ) that only support 4.1 🙁
The BB version is an unofficial user contributed version. Do you really want to trust your passwords, bank accounts, and sensitive information to some unknown user who contributed the software to KeePass?
I don’t think so.
I will wait until the review process changes for contributed versions.
The internet is even more risky than a blackberry phone.After all you can dis activate internet access for all software with the blackberry firewall or you can simply disable the the phone radio access.
I have a question for keepass creators, do you support blackberry 7100t?Do you have any version that work with older version?
