KeePassX Password Manager:

KeePassX is a password manager that enables users to manage a large number of complex passwords. KeePassX is available on many platforms, to include Windows, Android, IOS, and Linux systems. KeePassX passwords are held in an encrypted database that require a user to remember only one password. Random passwords with as many as 16 characters are able to be generated.

KeePassX has been replaced with KeePass2. KeePass2 is able to generate much longer passwords (up to 256 bit) and users are able to build custom generating passwords for each account. For instance, maybe a particular email account does not allow use of the '*' (asteric)--a perameter could be created and no passwords generated in the future would contain the '*' (asteric) for that account.

The recommended KeePass2 for Windows can be downloaded: here.

The older KeePassX for Windows can be downloaded: here.
