At least, I hope not. It would negate the entire purpose of KeePass’ security if there existed a convenient way to get around the main password.

I know that’s not the news you wanted to hear, but I’m afraid the only way to open the vault is to track down your predecessor and beat it out of him.

Good luck!

My Predecessor created a vault with all our system password, however he was fired and now he is not available to give me the default vault password and as such cannot retreive my system password. Is there anyway to get around this?

To this effect, perhaps you use a free password manager such as KeePass. […]

That shows you how much time I spend futzing around with an app. I found a similar program for Mac: http://agilewebsolutions.com/products/1Password

There are options to hide usernames and/or hide passwords in the manager. Here’s a screenshot from my machine:

That’s on the Windows version, but I assume KeePassx also has that feature. I’m not in front of my Mac to check at the moment.

The only thing I don’t like is how it hides the password from me (I’m such a luddite). I know I can use this to store info about a particular web page login, and that’s fine, but when I start using it for my passwords for SSH connections to various servers or database passwords I access on the command line, this obfuscation is a hinderance… understandable, but still annoying. The quick work-around is to write the password in the “comments” field.

My do-it-yourself version of this app was to create an encrypted disk image in OS X, then stash a handful of text documents in that image. Low-brow, but it worked.
