Try living with ADHD - for some of us, roughly 5%, this serves a great purpose. Seems when I go to another site I need to create an accout on, my normal user ID is already taken, so even if I WANTED to use the same..... This is a great tool and an accommodation for those of us born less than perfect. Or maybe we are, and the others simply suffer from attention surplus disorder!
Thanks for the review......... and to the rest for the other info.
Now, where the heck did I leave those car keys........

• Free & Open Source. Less likely a disgruntle employee or profit focus management will place my data are risk.
• Database Backup plug-in. Every time the database is saved due to a modification a copy of the database file is automatically backup to a location I configured. This can be directory in dropbox, box, USB stick, or local drive. Multiple target locations can be defined. I was burnt badly once by earlier version of RoboForm when it database file got corrupted. The backup database file name contains the date and time of the backup. Also the plug-in can be configured to only retain so many backups.
• Allow the use of a key file stored on a USB stick. By using a key file multi-factor authentication is enabled for access to the KeePass database. This means to access my KeyPass database a password and key file on the USB stick is need. This is a far stronger method for securing your critical information. Note: if you’re using a simple password for your password manager you would be better off not using a password manager. Think about it.
• Dropbox plug-in allow access to KeePass database file residing on Dropbox. If the Windows Dropbox or Box client installed the plug-in not needed. Mmm, this maybe built-in now.
• On-Screen virtual keyboard plug-in. Using this plug-in makes it even more difficult for a keyboard logger to grab you password when open your KeePass database.
