KeePassXC is a cross-platform community driven password manager. It is based on the popular KeePass for Windows, but with a faster cadence of development and explicit support for non-Windows platforms. KeePassXC is highlighted as "an example of a password manager that is open-source and free" by the Electronic Frontier Foundation in their Surveillance Self-Defense project. It maintains an encrypted database of passwords that is locked by a master password. This database is stored on the user's computer rather than in some cloud-based storage system. Browser integration plugins are available for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Alternately, the built-in auto-type feature can be used to enter passwords into any application with a bit more configuration. Instructions on setting up browser integration and auto-type are available in the "Docs/FAQ" section of the website. Installers can be downloaded for Windows, macOS, and Linux computers. KeePassXC is free software, licensed under the GNU General Public License, with source code available on GitHub.
