KeePass is a free/open-source password manager or safe which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way.

Software Details

Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your homepage's ftp password, online passwords (like CodeProject member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem... A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, homepage, etc. Unimaginable.

KeePass is a free/open-source password manager or safe which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key-disk. So you only have to remember one single master password or insert the key-disk to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish). For more information, see the features page.

Portable apps versions available.

is this really cross platform?

It's a password manger software works on multiple platform. You can save your passwords (email password, banking password, etc...) with encrypted format and retrieve them when you need. The project web site claims that the software supports Mac OS; however, I was not able to figure out how to launch it on Mac OS. It seems that the downloaded zip file contains files relevant to Windows OS, i.e., EXE and DLL. There is unofficial ports on MacApp store, but it costs $7.99 to download. If you are looking for multiple platform password manager, web-based system such as passpack (https://www.passpack.com) might work better.
