Extension Update

To get the most out of the Keeper Browser Extension, it is important that you are running the latest version. All extensions installed from the App Store, including Keeper Password Manager & Digital Vault, are automatically kept up to date.

Logging In

Consumer customers can log in to the Keeper browser extension with the Keeper email address and Master Password. If you are part of an Enterprise roll-out, you may be directed to log in with your Enterprise SSO Login credentials.

For customers who log in with SSO, you can type in the Enterprise Domain supplied by your Keeper Administrator.

AutoFill Passwords

Clicking the Keeper lock allows you to quickly fill and log in to a site. You can fill your login and password by clicking the Fill button or by clicking on Show More to fill individual fields.

Keyboard Shortcuts

If you prefer to use keyboard shortcuts instead of mouse clicks to make the process of auto filling your passwords even more seamless, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the site you would like to log in to.

  2. Type command+shift+k (for Mac OS) or alt+k (for Windows).

  3. In the field provided, begin typing your search terms.

  4. Use the up and down arrows on your keyboard to find and highlight the record you are searching for.

  5. Use the enter key to quickly fill and log in to the site.

Multiple Account Selector

If you have multiple logins for the same website, click on the dropdown menu to expand the selection and display all of the matching records.

Matching Records

When logging in to a website, the Keeper Browser extension will provide a list of matching records. The matching is performed by looking at the "Website Address" field of the record as well as the custom fields.

The list of matching records is determined by looking at the URLs stored within your Keeper record. Once the list is generated, a series of logical steps determines the sort order of the selection list, and which specific record is selected as the default choice.

1. If the page you're visiting has a subdomain (e.g. xyz.google.com), then Keeper first looks at the subdomain for the closest match in your vault records. The best matches are sorted by the last time they were used.

2. After checking subdomain, Keeper looks at the "path" information (e.g. xzy.googe.com/some/path) and compares it to the path stored within your Keeper record. The best matches are again sorted by the last time they were used.

3. If the page contains an email address on the screen (such as a pre-filled email field) then Keeper will pre-select the record from the subdomain and path criteria which contains the email field.

Tip: For the best record match, make sure that the "Website Address" field in the Keeper record matches the domain and path as close as possible to the target site.

Creating New Records

To create a new login for a website, click on Create New. Keeper will also offer to save passwords as you type them in on a website login screen.

Importing Passwords

Creating Secure Passwords

Click on the Dice to generate a secure password for a website. Customize the strength of the password and click Save.

To make sure KeeperFill is able to locate the record in your Vault to fill, be sure to set the Website Address in your record to the same domain as the website (e.g. "amazon.com").

Changing Passwords

KeeperFill makes it easy to change your login passwords. When visiting a site's "Change Password" form, you will receive a prompt from Keeper asking if you would like help changing your password. By clicking Yes, Keeper will walk you through a few quick steps to change your password and simultaneously update the record in your vault. These steps will include a series of prompts detailing the following actions:

  • Autofill your old/current password

  • Automatically generate and autofill a new secure password

  • Confirm the changes and save them to your vault

Prompt to Change Password

How to change passwords with KeeperFill:

  1. Navigate to the site's Change Password form.

  2. When prompted by Keeper to help change your password, click Yes.

  3. Click the lock icon located in the form field for the old/current password (if available), then click Next.

  4. Click the lock icon located in each form field that is requesting your new password, then click Next.

  5. In the KeeperFill popup, click Save.

  6. In the password form, click Save or Submit.

  7. If the change was successful click Yes. (If it was not successful, click No - Revert Change. This will reverse the password update just made to the site's Keeper record and will allow you to attempt the password change again.)

The "Change Password" form is typically located on the site's "Account Settings" page.

One Record, Multiple Domains

Some sites have more than one domain (website address) that require the same exact login/password. If this is the case for any of your records, rather than creating an entirely separate record, KeeperFill allows you to store multiple website domains within one record. So no matter what domain you are logging in from, KeeperFill will recognize that domain as an alias and allow you to log in with the same stored credentials.

To store multiple website domains within a single record:

  1. While viewing the record, click Edit.

  2. Click the + Custom Field button.

  3. In Custom Field Name, enter a field name (e.g. Website Alias).

  4. In Custom Field Value, enter the site's alternate domain name.

  5. To finish, click Save.

  6. You can continue to repeat this process for additional domain names by clicking the + Custom Field button again.

Match on Subdomain Setting

The "Match on Subdomain" setting enables the Keeper browser extension to recognize and differentiate a record's subdomain (if present) from its domain. In doing so, only records that match the subdomain of the login page will be populated into the extension window.

Example:

If a user has a record with a website address containing a subdomain and domain such as "subdomain1.company.com" and another record with the website address containing the same domain "company.com" and attempts to log in at "subdomain1.company.com, the only record match that will appear is "subdomain1.company.com".

To enable this setting follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the Keeper Browser Extension icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.

  2. Click on Settings.

  3. Click on Match on Subdomain.

  4. Click on the switch button to toggle it "on".

If records with similar subdomains exist in your vault you are able to view those alternative matches by clicking on the dropdown menu.

Alternatively, if no records exist in your Vault for the subdomain of the page you are visiting, but they do for the domain, the Keeper extension will populate all of the existing recordings containing that domain.

Payment Cards & Identity

KeeperFill can also fill payment cards and identity information that are stored in your Vault. Payment cards are only available to fill at websites in which you currently have a Keeper record for.

KeeperFill Right-Click Context Menu

If a website form field does not display the Keeper lock icon, users can right-click on the field to open the KeeperFill window.
