Corporeal is a password manager, somewhat inspired by KeePass Password Safe. It strives to keep it's UI simple and straightforward. Rather than using a category system, passwords are organized in a flat list, a search/filter function making sure you'll find the one you need. All the core functionality you would expect is there. Import from and export to KeePass XML files is supported (which in turn can export to a variety of formats), so you'll be able to take your passwords elsewhere if you decide that Corporeal is not for you after all.

So are your passwords secure? Reasonably secure, yes. If you want to protect classified information, this is not the tool to do the job. Otherwise, it might be. See the security section below and decide for yourself.
