0.7.9 (See all)

MacPass is a Mac utility for storing personal information, like email account credentials, software license keys, credit card details, etc. The program is very intuitive, allows you to sort your credentials into groups, and is packed with an effective password manager.

This tool might prove to be of good use if you're the type of person who created multiple accounts on different websites or for accessing various services. With its help, you can store all of your private information in one place, away from prying eyes. The utility might also come in handy when creating new accounts as it brings you a password generator that can help you get strong passcodes.

Other useful features include the ability to automatically clear clipboard content, lock the program's records as soon as your Mac goes into Sleep mode, and options to install third-party plugins.

A disadvantage is the fact that you cannot sync the stored content across your Cloud account, a feature that's usually available in password managers. Also, the program supports a few output formats when it comes to exporting the stored account information.

Still, this utility is open source, so you can use it on your Mac for as long as you like, without paying a dime. I'd say it's worth giving it a try if you're looking for an easy-to-use password manager.
