    Bimil is a free and open-source password manager program for use with Microsoft Windows and Ubuntu Linux.


    The program was originally created in 2011 for internal use but was later converted [2] to use Password Safe v3 database format.


    Internally Bimil uses C# Password Safe library[3] to read and write its files. Unlike Password Safe it doesn't support tree structure but it allows only for single-level grouping.

    Password management[edit]

    Stored passwords can be sectioned into groups. Any tree structure existing in Password Safe file is automatically flattened upon opening.

    Further, application can track the creation time, modification time, last access time, and expiration time of each password stored.


    In addition to standard copy/paste support, the software supports customizable auto-type for all fields, including user-name, e-mail, and password.

    Auto-type is not available on Linux.

    Password generator[edit]

    The software features a built-in password generator that allows generation of random passwords and random passphrases.


    File format is compatible with Password Safe 3.x and thus file can be opened in any Password Safe compatible application. Extra fields specific to Bimil (e.g. credit card info) will probably be lost in those cases.

    Password breach verification[edit]

    In addition to checking for weak passwords locally using list of most commonly used password, application also integrates with Have I Been Pwned? service to allow for detection of breaches and leaked passwords.


    As file format is build upon Password Safe 3.xx series, it uses Twofish encryption[4] The keys are derived using an equivalent of PBKDF2 with SHA-256 and a configurable number of iterations, currently set at 2048.[5][6]


    Reviewers have highlighted the program's simplicity as its best feature.[7]
