Android Version 16.8.20

Released on March 19, 2024


  • AN-7757: Passkey Support: This feature allows users to securely sign into websites using passkeys stored in the Keeper Android Application. By leveraging autofill, users can conveniently authenticate without passwords, enhancing security and usability. Requires Android 14.

    • Passkeys work on websites and applications that have been specifically built to support them. Keeper maintains a passkey directory, which can be found HERE.

    • Upon tapping Create Passkey on a site or app, Keeper will intercept the request to create and save a passkey to your vault.

  • Returning to sites or apps where you have a stored passkey you will either be prompted to sign in with passkey or will be able to select Sign in with Passkey. Keeper does the rest!

Chrome and other Chromium based browsers do not have Passkey functionality enabled by default on Android devices. Credential Manager must be enabled.

Enable Passkeys on Android.

To enable Credential Manager follow these steps:

  1. Open Chrome or a Chromium based browser.

  2. Type chrome://flags into the address bar.

  3. In the flags page that opens, tap the search box and search for passkeys

  4. Select Default button to display dropdown menu options and choose Enable for Google Password Manager and 3rd party passkeys.

  5. Click the Relaunch button that appears at the bottom of the browser.
