Comprehensive guide for Keeper on Android phones and tablets.

Keeper Master Password

To create a Keeper account, you need to provide your email address and select a Master Password. The Master Password is the only password you need to remember. We recommend choosing a strong Master Password. The longer and more random the string of characters you use, the better.

Do not forget your Master Password. If you are using Keeper on more than one device, you will need to login to the device with your email address and Master Password.

Enterprise users who login with SSO do not require selection of a Master Password.

Enterprise SSO Login

If you are an Enterprise customer using SSO Login, tap on Enterprise SSO Login and then enter your Enterprise Domain provided by your Keeper administrator.

New User Experience

When you first log in to your Vault, Keeper will walk you though the process of creating your first password record and highlight several features of the app. Keeper will then give you the opportunity to import passwords from your computer and web browsers. If you're not near a computer, you can perform the import at a later time.

After tapping on I'm at my computer, Keeper will tell you to navigate to on your computer. Follow the instructions on your computer to continue the import process. Click here for instructions on Web Vault Import.

Two-Factor Authentication

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) provides an extra layer of protection against unauthorized access by requiring a second code verification at login upon activating a new device. Supported methods include:

  • Text Message (SMS)

  • Google and Microsoft Authenticator (TOTP)

  • Smartwatch (KeeperDNA)

  • Duo Security (Enterprise Use Only)

  • RSA SecurID (Enterprise Use Only)

To access Keeper DNA, from the navigation drawer, tap Settings. Locate Two-Factor Authentication from the menu and toggle the switch "ON". Then select your preferred 2FA method from the dropdown menu. Use the instructions documented in following sections to complete your 2FA set-up.

Text Message (SMS)

  1. From the Keeper Two-Factor Authentication method dropdown menu select Text Message.

  2. Select a country code (US+1 by default) and enter your 10 digit phone number (including your area code). Tap SAVE.

  3. Select for how long you would like the 2FA code to be valid.

  4. Enter the code that was just sent to the phone number you added. This verifies that you trust this number and device. Codes only last for a minute so if you need another code sent, tap Send a new code. Tap SAVE.

  5. A list of backup codes will appear next. If you are ever unable to receive Two-Factor codes, you can enter a backup code instead. To move on, tap I HAVE WRITTEN THESE CODES DOWN.

If you are not receiving SMS messages from Keeper, please use the TOTP method instead or contact to troubleshoot the issue.

Google and Microsoft Authenticator (TOTP)

  1. From the Keeper Two-Factor Authentication method dropdown menu select Google and Microsoft Authenticator (TOTP). Tap SAVE.

  2. Select for how long you would like the 2FA code to be valid.

  3. When prompted, Scan the QR code with your Google Authenticator or a TOTP app and then enter the verification code that appears. Tap SAVE.

  4. A list of Backup Codes will appear next. If you are ever unable to receive Two-Factor codes, you can enter a backup code instead. To move on, tap I HAVE WRITTEN THESE CODES DOWN.

TOTP 2FA Set-up

Depending on how you answered the question "How long you want the code to be valid" will determine when and where you will need your Two-Factor code. Save code on this device forever will do just that but, if you sign in somewhere else, let's say, another phone, it will ask for your code again. Once the code is inputed, it will save the code on that device forever. The same will be true of one that is requested every 30 days or every login.

Smartwatch (Keeper DNA)

KeeperDNA is another method of supporting Two-Factor Authentication using Android Wearable devices. Essentially, a code will be sent to the users wearable such as a watch (which is paired with the Keeper Application on a mobile device) and verifies the users identity with the tap of a button.

To begin, make sure your device is paired with your wearable and that you have downloaded the corresponding Keeper app. Once installed it will appear in your wearable's app section.

Keeper App on Android Wearable Device
  1. From the Keeper Two-Factor Authentication method dropdown menu select Smartwatch (KeeperDNA).

  2. Select how long you would like the 2FA code to be valid.

  3. A KeeperDNA graphic will then appear while it waits for your verification. On your wearable tap Verify when prompted. Your wearable is now enabled for Two-factor Authentication.

In the case that verification fails or doesn't register, you will have the option to enter a code generated by your wearable instead. To do so, open the Keeper app on your wearable, under Watch Favorites, tap KeeperDNA. You will see a timed code appear which you will then enter on your device to complete the 2FA set-up process.

Adding Two-Factor Codes for Apps and Sites

Keeper integrates seamlessly with all Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) methods including TOTP, SMS, Touch/Face ID, and U2F security keys. Use Keeper to store your sites' Two-Factor Authentication codes and KeeperFill will autofill them at your next login where 2FA is required (Android 8.0 and newer)

While viewing a record tap the edit icon then tap the attach icon.

Select Two-Factor Code then tap Allow when asked if Keeper can access your device's camera.

Using your device's camera function, hover over the site's QR code. The Two-Factor Code will automatically be generated in the record. Tap the checkmark to finish.

Tap the Two-Factor Code field to copy it to the clipboard and paste it into apps and sites as needed.

2FA Prompting Behavior and Offline Access

When 2FA is activated on an account, it protects the user on all devices and all platforms because 2FA is protecting access to the backend cloud system.

By definition, two-factor authentication protects access to the cloud and it protects access to online accounts. It therefore requires an online connection to be prompted for 2FA. 2FA is triggered when a request is made from the client device to the server. For example when logging into a new device, syncing new information on an existing device or performing any other cloud-based features.

By default, the native Keeper app for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows allow users to login quickly with their master password (offline mode) to access their vault. After typing in the master password or using biometric login, the user decrypts the data locally, then the app sends a sync request to the server at which time the user may be prompted for their 2FA code. Depending on the speed of the Internet connection, the 2FA prompt may be received a couple seconds after logging into the native application because the local decryption of data occurs much faster.

Offline authentication and vault access is permitted by all consumer customers. Enterprise customers may restrict the use of offline access for their employees.

2FA Token Retention and Timing

When activating 2FA on your Android device for the first time, the user selects how often they want to be prompted. Users can be prompted for 2FA every login, once every 30 days, or only one time per device. It's important to understand that 2FA is always enabled on the Keeper servers. After a successful login on a device, a "token" is generated from the 2FA code and stored locally on the device as long as it's deemed valid by the server. This is why you are still able to login to the same device over and over without being re-prompted. By default, consumer customers will be prompted only one time per device. Enterprise customers may enforce users to be prompted every time for a new code.

Currently, the 2FA token retention timing on Android will default to "only one time" on a device if the 2FA was initially set up on the Web Vault or Desktop App. To change this behavior, please turn 2FA off and then re-activate 2FA on the iOS device.

Watch & Record Favorites
