Logging In

Consumer customers can login to the Keeper browser extension with the Keeper email address and Master Password. If you are part of an Enterprise rollout, you may be directed to login with your Enterprise SSO Login credentials.

On the Chrome browser, the extension will automatically login when you login to the Web Vault. Other web browsers may require you to login separately to the Vault and Browser Extension.

For customers who login with SSO, you can type in the Enterprise Domain supplied by your Keeper Administrator.

Searching the Vault

You can search for any website login or other information stored in your Keeper vault by entering your search terms in the search bar. The search feature is case insensitive and will match any record within your vault.

Autofill Passwords

Clicking the Keeper lock allows you to quickly fill and login to the site. You can fill login and password by clicking on fill button or click on Show More to fill individual fields.

Multiple Account Selector

If you have multiple logins for the same website, click on the dropdown to expand the selection and display all of the matching records.

Matching Records

When logging into a website, the Keeper Browser extension will provide a list of matching records. The matching is performed by looking at the "Website Address" field of the record as well as the custom fields.

The list of matching records is determined by looking at the URLs stored within your Keeper record. Once the list is generated, a series of logical steps determines the sort order of the selection list, and which specific record is selected as the default choice.

1. If the page you're visiting has a subdomain (e.g., then Keeper first looks at the subdomain for the closest match in your vault records. The best matches are sorted by the last time they were used.

2. After checking subdomain, Keeper looks at the "path" information (e.g. and compares it to the path stored within your Keeper record. The best matches are again sorted by the last time they were used.

3. If the page contains an email address on the screen (such as a pre-filled email field) then Keeper will pre-select the record from the subdomain and path criteria which contains the email field.

Tip: For the best record match, make sure that the "Website Address" field in the Keeper record matches the domain and path as close as possible to the target site.
