How to store and manage your passkeys with Keeper

What's a Passkey?

A passkey is a cryptographic key that lets you log in to your accounts and apps without having to enter a password or a second factor. Passkeys are phishing-resistant.

Storing passkeys in your Keeper Vault allows them to be used across different browsers and operating systems. They can also be shared with other users like any other record in your vault.

Supported Websites

Passkeys only work on websites and applications that have been specifically built to support them. The list of supported sites is pretty small right now, but it will grow over time.

Creating a Passkey

To create and save a passkey for a site, typically you'll need to visit the "Security" or "Account Settings" screen of the website. In the below example, we'll be showing Best Buy.

When clicking the "Create a Passkey" button, Keeper will intercept the request and ask you to save the passkey to your vault.

Logging In With a Passkey

The next time you visit a website that supports passkey login, locate the "Sign in with a Passkey" or similar action button on the site, then click Use Passkey in the KeeperFill window to login. Sometimes you'll first need to enter your email address and the site will prompt you for a passkey login selection.

In the case of Best Buy, clicking on "Sign in with a Passkey" initiates the passkey login process with Keeper. Click on "Use Passkey" and you'll be logged in.

That's it! Using a passkey with Keeper and supported websites is very straightforward for sites that support it.

Vault Storage

In the Keeper Vault, you will see a Passkey field attached to the record. The Passkey field contains several pieces of information:

  • Date the passkey was created

  • Username

  • Relying party (website or app)

Passkey records can be managed in your vault, placed in folders or shared with other users.

Using Passkeys on Mobile Devices

Passkeys on mobile devices, a highly anticipated feature for enhanced security and convenience, is now available on Android devices running Android 14 and Apple devices running iOS 17. This update marks a significant enhancement in our mobile applications capabilities, offering users an even more secure and streamlined experience.

Passkeys are available on Android 14+ and iOS 17+
