Solution to common issues and other helpful tricks

Common Questions

  • Forgot Master Password Please note that Keeper employees do not have access to your Master Password or Security Answer, 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.

    Without your Master Password or Security Question answer, your records cannot be decrypted. If you don't have a Security Question setup for the Keeper account at all, unfortunately account recovery will not be possible.

    For business customers: If you have tried all possible Master Password options and are still unable to login to Keeper, you will need to contact one of your Keeper Administrators within your company to have them either transfer your account to a new vault so that you do not lose any data. Or, request your Admin to delete your profile and re-invite you which will allow you to start over with a new master password and security answer. For consumer customers: If you have tried all possible Master Password and Account Recovery options and are still unable to login to Keeper, we can delete your account so that you can start over. Please contact the support team for assistance.

  • Two-Factor Authentication Needs to be Reset For business customers, please contact the Keeper Administrator at your company. Your Keeper Admin can disable your 2FA. For Keeper Administrators, please open a business support ticket and we will assist you. For individual and family users, please open a consumer support ticket and we will assist you.

📱 SMS Delivery Issues

  • Text Message / SMS is not a guaranteed delivery mechanism and can be delayed for a number of reasons beyond our control at the cellular carrier level. Generally, we recommend using a TOTP device such as Microsoft or Google Authenticator for 2FA access to Keeper instead of SMS.

Firefox:

  • On Privacy & Security page > Clear Data, (Cookies and Site data, Cached Web Content)

Safari:

  • Then select "Develop" > Empty Caches

  • Select "Safari" menu then "Clear History" and select All Time

💻 Other Browser Extension Issues

  • Restart your Web Browser (Full Restart, not just new window)

  • Install updates to make sure you're on the latest browser version

  • Make sure only 1 extension is installed

Firefox users with Private Windows will experience an infinite spinning screen if trying to login to the Browser Extension. If you must use a Private Window, login to the Web Vault directly and this will login automatically to the Browser Extension. From there, you'll be able to use Autofill capabilities but the Browser Extension toolbar is not functional.

Another solution is to use Keeper in normal browsing mode. Here's a few Firefox settings that are causing problems with Keeper:

Go to Settings > Privacy & Security

(1) Do NOT delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed

(2) Do NOT always use private browsing mode. Keeper does not function in this mode, even if you allow it.

Other Browser Settings to check

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.

"Stay Logged In" feature not working?

If you are being asked to login more often than desired, please check the following:

  • From the browser extension, go to Settings > Stay Logged In > turn the setting OFF and then ON. Then logout and login to Keeper.

  • From the browser extension, go to Settings > Logout Timer > turn the logout timer ON and OFF.

  • If you have 2FA enabled, perhaps you have this set to prompt every login. This may cause Stay Logged In to enforce 2FA more often. Please disable and re-enable 2FA from the Settings screen and select "Remember Forever" when prompted for 2FA.

  • Ensure that you are using v15.3.3 or newer of the Browser Extension on your device.

  • Ensure that you are using v16.0.0 or newer of the Keeper Desktop application

The Mac Store version of the Keeper application does not support iCloud Keychain password import due to Apple's review process.
