Please note that the uninstaller will remove all your personal settings but NOT your password database files, however I would STRONGLY urge you to make sure you save your .kdb files somewhere OTHER than the program folder, because I will NOT be held responsible for any loss of personal data you might occur from uninstalling this.
Also please note that I will NOT be updating this addon when it goes to version v2 Final, because I don't use this anymore in my personal builds and have no motivation to maintain stuff that I don't use.

What is KeePass?
Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your homepage's ftp password, online passwords (like CodeProject member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem... A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, homepage, etc. Unimaginable.
KeePass is a free/open-source password manager or safe which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key-disk. So you only have to remember one single master password or insert the key-disk to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).
Is it really free?
Yes, KeePass is really free, and more than that: it is open-source (OSI certified). You can have a look at its full source and for example check if the encryption algorithms are implemented correctly.
Perhaps you wonder why I decided to make it open-source. The answer is relatively simple: in my opinion all software that has something to do with security should be open-source.
I have a funny feeling I have seen a switchless addon for this already... may have been RogueSpear? But anyhoo this is a proper addon which I prefer myself.
