Free Family License for Personal Use

This guide provides an overview of how Enterprise and Business users can create a free, Keeper Family Plan and once created, how to easily switch between their Keeper accounts.

Create a Free Family Plan from a Business or Enterprise Account

All Keeper Enterprise users can create a free, Keeper Family Plan for up to 5 family members with unlimited devices. Once the user sets up the Family Plan, each family member receives their own vault. They can also share passwords between family members using either Shared Folders or individual record sharing.

(1) Log into the Keeper Web Vault or Desktop App

(2) Click on your email address found in the top right corner.

(3) Select Account

(4) Enter your personal email in the "Keeper Family License for Personal Use" section and click Send Email

(5) Please logout from the Business vault on your browser by clicking on Email > Logout.

Important Note about Data Center Location

If you follow the link sent on your desktop computer, you'll be properly routed to the same geographic data center that is associated with your Keeper Business vault. Therefore we recommend using your Desktop computer to create your personal Keeper Vault.

If you decide to use your mobile device for creating your personal vault, see the instructions below.

Creating Account on Mobile

If you decide to create your personal account on an iOS or Android device, please take note of the "Data Center" option at the bottom of the screen:

Creating Account on Mobile

Please ensure that you are selecting the correct Data Center location. If you set up your personal Keeper account in the wrong region, you'll need to contact Keeper support to delete and re-create your account.

Confirming License Activation

After your personal account has been created, it will show up as licensed in the business vault Account settings:

Important notes regarding your linked personal account:

  • Your linked personal account is licensed as a Keeper Family Plan account with 10GB of secure file storage and BreachWatch dark web monitoring.

  • The company managing your Business vault does not have any access rights or ability to decrypt information stored in your personal vault.

  • Your linked personal account will remain free on unlimited devices for as long as the business account is active.

  • If you leave the business, or if the business does not renew their subscription with Keeper, your Family license converts into a Keeper Free subscription. You may continue to use your personal license on one device, or purchase a Family or Unlimited subscription for all of the premium features.

  • Your Business Admin may remove the ability to share records from the business vault to the linked personal vault.

This vault is for personal use only. All business-related credentials must be stored within your company issued vault.
