Solution to common issues and other helpful tricks
For security reasons, Keeper will prevent Enterprise users outside of an SSO node from logging in with a federated identity provider. If you have users unable to login with SSO, please ensure that the user is provisioned to the node within the Keeper Admin Console to the SSO-enabled node. To move a user into an SSO node, edit the user and select the node from the drop-down.
If you are experiencing an issue with Firefox performance, open Firefox > Settings > Privacy & Security > change History setting to "Never Remember".

Many issues can be resolved by updating your Keeper app. Install the latest Keeper version from your App Store or the Keeper Website.
Web browsers generally stop working properly if an update is pending or the browser is out of date, even by one version. Make sure to update your web browser to the latest version and then fully restart your web browser.
Clear cache on your web browser or open Incognito Mode to try and login. If this works, you should just reset your Keeper app by visiting the Web Vault on your respective data center:

Ensure only ONE Keeper browser extension is installed. Having two installed causes many issues. Visit Window > Extensions and check your extensions. Don't use multiple password managers at the same time.
This is a very common issue with our users. Keeper's advanced security protection and encryption prevents inspection of traffic, otherwise known as "man-in-the-middle". This can sometimes conflict with antivirus, popup blockers and web filtering apps. Make sure to try turning OFF these 3rd party plugins or applications to see if they are causing any conflict with Keeper.
If you are experiencing an issue where the Two-Factor (TOTP) codes are different between your mobile and desktop devices, this is usually caused by the time difference between your devices. Ensure that your device time and date is set to "Automatic". If the times are different by even a few seconds, this will cause different codes to appear on different devices.
All Chromium-based extensions are affected by a Chromium Bug which causes browser extensions to re-install themselves after a GPO change is made by an admin. The effect of this, is that a user's device becomes unverified and may require them to perform "device approval" on Keeper. Once Google releases the Chromium fix, it will propagate into Chrome, Edge, etc. In the meantime, you can reduce the effect of this bug by setting up Keeper Automator which automatically approves devices without admin intervention.
If biometrics such as Face ID / Touch ID stops working, simply login to Keeper with your Master Password (or SSO), then visit the Settings screen and turn biometric login OFF and ON. This should resolve any biometric login issues.
Consumers: Keeper employees do not have access to your Master Password or Recovery Phrase, and we cannot reset it for you. If you have forgotten your Master Password, please try using our Account Recovery feature by visiting the "Need Help" > "Forgot Master Password" option on the Keeper login screen.

If you are using SSO for login, they can assist you in recovering your account with the SSO provider.

Check for Multiple Extensions
It's important to ensure that you only have one Keeper extension installed. Please check your Extensions screen to ensure that only one extension is activated. If you have multiple installed, this will cause login and Autofill issues.
Check for Conflicting Browser Extensions
For example, the "Click & Clean" extension is known to cause conflicts with Keeper. Do not clear local storage or cache settings of Keeper, as we require storing device session data in the browser storage.
Check for Cache Settings
Ensure that "clear site data when you quit Chrome" is disabled. This can cause errors and vault decryption issues.
iOS Keychain Password Import
The Mac Store version of the Keeper application does not support iCloud Keychain password import due to Apple's review process. However, the solution is to install Keeper from the website: https://keepersecurity.com/download
