Two-step verification provides an extra layer of security when you log into a website or application. Keeper DNA® makes two-step verification fast and simple. You can use your Windows Hello to login to your Keeper vault.
To access Keeper DNA, select the DNA logo on the left-hand side menu. Select Method to get a menu of choices: Text Message, Google and Microsoft Authenticator (TOTP), DUO Security, and RSA SecurID. RSA SecurID and DUO Security are Enterprise features that require an Enterprise or Business account.
1. Under Method, select Text Message. Select a Region (US+1 by default) and enter your 10 digit phone number that includes your area code. Select Next to continue.
2. You will see a prompt that says your Two-Factor Authentication code as been sent. Keeper then will ask to Enter your code. Enter in the Keeper code that was texted 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, select Send a new code.
3. On the same screen, answer how long do you want the Two-Factor code to be valid. Make a choice of: Save code on this device forever, Require code every 30 days, or Require code every login. Select Save to continue.
4. Backup Codes will be shown next. If you are unable to receive Two-Factor codes via that device, you can enter in one of the ones shown instead. Select I have written these codes down to finish.
5. 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 input, 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.
1. Select Google and Microsoft Authenticator (TOTP) under Method and select Next.
2. Scan the QR code with your Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator or any other TOTP-compatible app. Once scanned, enter in the code from your TOTP app to Keeper DNA for confirmation.

Select Save to continue.
3. Backup Codes will be shown next. If you are unable to receive Two-Factor codes via that device, you can enter in one of the ones shown instead. Select I HAVE WRITTEN THESE CODES DOWN to finish.
4. Depending on how you answered the question "How long you want the code to be valid" will determine how often you will need your Two-Factor code.
