Android - Phone & Tablet

This quick start guide will walk you through the setup steps and main features of Keeper for Android, linking additional user guides throughout for a more detailed look.

Getting Started

There are a few set-up steps on both your Android device and desktop computer we recommend that you complete first to help you get up and running with Keeper in no time.

Account Creation

Signing up for Keeper's Android mobile app is easy. Simply visit the Google Play store on your device and install Keeper Password Manager.
Once the download is complete, enter your email address. If you are not an existing user, you will be asked to create a Master Password which will be the only password you need to remember. We recommend that you choose a strong Master Password that is only used for Keeper -- don't forget your Master Password!
Create Keeper Account

Enable 2FA

After downloading the Keeper Mobile App, it is highly recommended that you enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). Two-Factor Authentication provides an extra layer of protection against unauthorized access to your vault by requiring a second passcode verification at login. Using 2FA is advised to further increase the security and protection of the data stored in Keeper.
Tap the menu icon then tap Settings and toggle Two-Factor Authentication on.
Enable Two-Factor Authentication
Tap the dropdown button to select your Two-Factor notification method and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the setup (more on that here).
Select Two-Factor Authentication Method
Whether you choose text message or an authenticator app as your 2FA method, Keeper offers the convenience of not having to enter the verification code every time you login. To enable this feature, select Save code on this device forever during 2FA set-up and you will only have to enter the code once on each device you login into.

Enable KeeperFill

On Android Oreo (8.0) and newer, our KeeperFill feature seamlessly autofills your logins and passwords into apps and web browsers. Use KeeperFill to quickly create and autofill passwords into web browsers such as Chrome and Firefox as well as all other 3rd Party Applications.
Before you can use the KeeperFill feature on your device, you will need to perform a few quick setup steps.
In Keeper, tap the menu icon, then tap Settings.

To make the most out of the Keeper Mobile App and ensure that your device's built-in password saving feature doesn't interfere with KeeperFill's autofill capabilities, we recommend that you only allow filling from Keeper.

Desktops Steps

When you first login to you vault, Keeper will give you the opportunity to import passwords from your computer and/or web browsers (If you're not near a desktop computer, you can perform the import at a later time).
After tapping I'm at my computer Keeper will ask you to navigate to keepersecurity.com/setup to begin the process of importing your passwords.

Import Passwords

You can either manually enter your existing logins and passwords into your vault or Keeper can import existing passwords directly from your web browser (e.g. Safari, Chrome, Firefox), another password manager, or from a text file (.csv).
To get started click your Account Dropdown Menu, then click Settings > Import.
