Stay Logged In

This guide reviews how to enable the new Stay Logged In feature and extend your Logout Timer setting.


By default, users are logged out of Keeper if their browser closes, or if their computer restarts. Keeper's "Stay Logged In" feature allows you to instead remain logged into for a configurable duration. Continuing reading to learn how to enable Stay Logged In in the Keeper Web Vault, Desktop App and the KeeperFill Browser Extension.

Web Vault & Desktop App

Sign in to the Keeper Web Vault or Desktop App and click the Account Dropdown Menu (your account email) > Settings > Security and turn "Stay Logged In" on.

Keeper will then recommend that you also enable the "Auto-Logout" setting, to protect your account if you walk away from your device. Also known as the "Inactivity Logout Timer", this automatically logs you out of Keeper after a period of inactivity. You can set this timer to the duration you prefer and it will continue to count down if you close your browser.

If you've downloaded the KeeperFill Browser Extension, you can manage the Auto-Logout setting from the extension's security settings menu (more on this in the section below).

Business customers should note that your Keeper Administrator may disable or limit this feature based on the security settings of your organization.

Browser Extension

If you've downloaded the KeeperFill Browser Extension you can enable both the Stay Logged In and Logout Timer features from the extension's security menu.

Click Settings > Security and enable (or disable) "Stay Logged In Between Sessions" and set a "Inactivity Logout Timer".

For security reasons, we recommend setting a reasonable logout timer duration when Stay Logged In is enabled.


Keeper's Stay Logged In feature uses Login API V3. The user's Master Password is NOT stored on the device or computer when using the Stay Logged In feature. Keeper utilizes advanced encryption, session management tokens and device authorization capabilities to protect your vault.
