KeePass (or any desktop pw manager?) Helper


This script will generate password files in plain text. ITS NOT SECURE.

I needed help remembering my full KeePass Master Password. I could remember parts of it and which keys were likely used. So I built these scripts to help out!



This is not a “password cracker”! You must know the beginning of the password and a set of characters that the remaining password could entail.

How to use

  1. Install requirements.txt using pip install -r requirements.txt.

  2. Open and enter the beginning portion of the password you remember as the rem_pw variable.

  3. Enter a separate set of characters for the first through nth positions.

  • All possible permutations of these characters will be concatenated with rem_pw and written to a file to be used by the program.

If you think the first position after the rem_pw portion was either a 1, 2, 3 or 4, set the first array as the strings shown below.

Perform the same for each additional set.

NOTE: The longer the set and the more sets you have will increase the numbers of permutations.

first = ['1', '2', '3', '4']
second = ['!', '@', '#', '$']
third = ['1', '2', '3', '4']
fourth = ['!', '@', '#', '$']
fifth = ['1', '2', '3', '4']
sixth = ['!', '@', '#', '$']
  1. Execute the Python script
  • A output.txt file with all permutations will be generated in the same folder.
  1. Open the and enter values for keepass_app (the actual KeePass .exe) and keepass_db (the KeePass database you want open).
    a. OPTIONAL: Enter any keywords to ignore. Of use only if you have some header, etc.

  2. Run!

  • NOTE: You cannot work on the computer while the program is running. This is where the counter variable comes into play.
