Software Update: KeePassXC 2.7.3

Spread the love

Version 2.7.3 of the open source password manager KeePassXC has been released. The program is a derivative of KeePass Password Safe and is being developed in C++ with Qt for the graphical part with which it offers a suitable appearance on Linux, macOS and Windows. KeePassXC allows accounts to be saved with all associated data such as username, password and URL. All data is securely stored in an AES, Twofish or ChaCha20 encrypted database. Furthermore, the program can automatically generate passwords and import and export lists. More information can be found at this page. The changelog for this release looks like this:
