One-Time Share
Time-limited secure sharing of a record to anyone without having to create a Keeper account
One-Time Share is now live on Web Vault, Desktop App version 16.6+, iOS and Android.

Overview

Keeper "One-Time Share" provides time-limited secure sharing of a record to anyone without having to create a Keeper account. One-Time Share is the most secure way to send confidential information to a friend, family member or co-worker without exposing information over email, text message or messaging.
One-Time Share in the Web Vault
One-Time Shares are secure by design, utilizing Keeper's Zero-Knowledge encryption. The record data is decrypted locally on the recipient's device using 256-bit AES and all requests to the server are signed with elliptic-curve cryptography (ECDSA).
Share links automatically expire at a time of your choosing, and they can only be used on one device. Even if you forget to un-share the record, it will expire and access will be revoked. As an additional layer of security, One-Time Shares are device-locked which means that only the original recipient is able to access the data. If the link is later opened up by a third party, or your email account is compromised, the link cannot be accessed, except on the original device.

Using One-Time Share
One-Time Share is only available on records created after April 26, 2021 when we published Record Types. If you're not seeing the One-Time Share feature, try creating a new record.
Also, if you are an Enterprise user, the use of One-Time Share may be restricted by your Keeper Administrator.
Record Access Expiration
After selecting the record access expiration time, you can copy the URL of the link, or copy the entire invitation body (for sending additional contextual information to the recipient). If you scroll down on that dialog, you'll also see a QR code that can be sent to the recipient.
Copy the One-Time Share link or Invitation Body
When the recipient of the share link opens the record, it will open in their web browser and it will be bound to their device. The record access will automatically expire after the set amount of time.

After the record has expired, the link will no longer be valid, and existing devices will no longer load the information.
