What is Keeper?

For starters, Keeper encrypts all stored login passwords and sensitive information using powerful encryption methods (256-bit AES), and it offers a variety of multi-factor authentication (MFA) options, including Touch ID and Face ID verification. It also includes additional security features such as password auditing, dark web surveillance, encrypted messaging, and more.

Keeper integrates a slew of complex capabilities within a simple-to-navigate dashboard that I found to be incredibly straightforward and simple to use.

Keeper should incorporate features like an automatic password changer, which Dashlane and LastPass already have, and I believe some of Keeper’s packages are overpriced. Keeper, on the other hand, stands out as one of the best password organizers in 2021, because to a wide range of cybersecurity solutions, including some unusual ones like an encrypted messaging app.


Security of Keeper

Keeper encrypts all user passwords and data with the industry-standard 256-bit AES algorithm. This is the same level of encryption that banks and governments employ, and it’s nearly impossible to crack. Keeper’s cloud server stores passwords and files, but all user data is encrypted and decrypted on the device.

Keeper also follows a stringent zero-knowledge policy, which means that none of the data in user accounts is accessible to Keeper staff. Keeper’s extensive range of additional security features struck me in general – it offers a lot more than most other password managers. Keeper also does a fantastic job with the fundamentals.

Features of Keeper

Password Manager – Adding + Sharing

Keeper’s password organizer allows you to store an unlimited number of passwords, and creating new ones is simple. All I had to do was click the “+” icon on the left-hand menu bar and select Create New Record. I could then type in my username, password, and website address, as well as give the entry a title.

I thought the ability to attach files or images to each password enter was quite cool. So that I could have all of my personal documentation available when purchasing a flight online, I added my passport and travel insurance documents to the entry for my Lufthansa Airways account.

For each online account, I could also set up two-factor authentication (2FA) code generator. I tried it out with my Twitter account, and it was simple to set up — all I had to do was scan the 2FA setup QR code Twitter provided and follow the on-screen instructions. Keeper now allows me to access 2FA codes for my Twitter account.

Keeper now allows me to access 2FA codes for my Twitter account.

Browser Extension

I was able to save and auto-fill passwords and payment information into numerous web forms using Keeper’s browser extension. It was also quite simple to look for passwords in my Keeper vault. Every time you log into a website for the first time, the Keeper extension presents a pop-up window asking to preserve your account credentials.

Keeper is a wonderful browser plugin for auto-filling passwords and web forms. Signing into all of my online accounts was a breeze – Keeper offered to automatically fill in my username/email and password on any site where I had saved credentials. In the past, I’ve had issues with browser extensions that didn’t always operate as expected (like Bitwarden constantly missing login fields).

Keeper’s browser add-on is one of my favorites. Keeper’s extension isn’t as feature-rich as LastPass or 1Password’s browser extensions, but it’s very safe and functional — and it handles all the essentials well, such as password auto-save and auto-fill. Overall, everything was simple to use and navigate, and it fulfilled all of my expectations for a browser plugin.

Payment Credentials and Identity

Keeper allows you to save your identity and payment card information to make online purchasing more convenient. You can include your entire name, physical address, home and mobile phone numbers, and email address while creating an identity.

Keeper has a simple identity function, however, there is a way to preserve identity documents in the vault. I had to create a new record and add custom fields to my entry to save information from my passport. Although it isn’t difficult, I would prefer if Keeper included templates for identity documents such as passports.

I’d want to see Keeper allow users to create many identities rather than just one, so they can clearly distinguish between personal and professional information. Also, instead of having to manually add custom fields for documents, I’d like to see ID templates. Despite this, this function is still fairly simple to use, and it speeds up the process of filling out basic web forms and buying online.

Breach Watch

Keeper’s dark web surveillance capability is called BreachWatch. It’s an optional function, however, it’s included in Keeper’s bundle products. When I first started testing this, I had high hopes because popular password managers like Dashlane provide excellent dark web surveillance tools. And BreachWatch did not disappoint me in the least!

I used my primary email address for all of my personal web accounts to test it. BreachWatch immediately notified me that an online account associated with this email address had been hacked! Keeper reminded me that I needed to address the problem, so I quickly got into the compromised account, changed my password, and enabled two-factor authentication.

BreachWatch regularly monitors all logins and passwords stored in your Keeper account for evidence of breaches, which I really like (like being found somewhere on the dark web). BreachWatch isn’t particularly unique because most other dark web monitoring tools offered by competing password managers also continuously check the security of a user’s accounts.



Multi-Factor Authentication

Keeper offers a variety of multi-factor authentication alternatives, such as two-factor authentication app compatibility, biometric logins, one-time SMS codes, smartwatch compatibility, and advanced enterprise options. Using an authenticator app to set up 2FA was simple and quick.

Keeper includes a lot more multi-factor authentication options than most other password managers, which I really appreciate. Keeper, unlike RoboForm and LastPass, does not currently support Windows Biometric Framework for fingerprint logins. However, I believe this will change in the near future. However, most users will find Keeper’s extensive selection of multi-factor authentication methods sufficient.

Security Audit

Keeper’s Security Audit feature keeps track of how strong your passwords are. Because I consistently update all of my passwords, the Security Audit feature awarded me a perfect grade for password security. But I was perplexed when it indicated that two of my passwords had been reused – I expected this to affect my overall score, but it didn’t. Overall, I believe most users will find Keeper’s Security Audit tool to be beneficial and useful, as it makes it very clear which passwords need to be reset.

Keeper Chat

KeeperChat is a secure messaging app. KeeperChat, like Keeper’s password manager, encrypts all messages end-to-end with 256-bit AES encryption. KeeperChat also includes a zero-knowledge policy, which means that no one at Keeper can see your communications.

With a few friends and family members, I used the premium edition of KeeperChat. I began by encouraging them to download KeeperChat, which was a really simple process. I only had to enter the person’s name, phone number, and email address, and they received an email asking them to download KeeperChat.

What Do People Say About Keeper?

author image

The Keeper app is one of my favorites. I’ve been using it for a long time. It ensures the security of my passwords. When I couldn’t remember a password, it came in handy several times! It’s incredibly simple to set up and use, and yes, it’s $29 per year if you want it to sync across all of your devices, which is well worth it!!! When you set it up, it tells you that one device is free, but if you want to add more, you must pay for $29 per year. People, read what you’re installing or purchasing!!! I work as a tech support supervisor for a BPO company, and I understand how inconvenient it is when customers forget their passwords.

It does not automatically add things to your account when you set it up, so if you read everything carefully and don’t want to add anything extra, such as dark web protection, you may exclude it! I think it’s well worth the $29 a year!

Bottom line on Keeper

Keeper is a safe and feature-rich password manager that uses bank-grade encryption and a zero-knowledge policy to protect user data. Both the basic and complex password management functions are well-designed and simple to use. Keeper is without a doubt one of the best password managers in 2021, despite the fact that it lacks a few extra features that some other password managers have.
