BreachWatch is a powerful secure add-on feature that monitors the internet and dark web for breached accounts matching records stored within your Keeper vault.

Once activated, BreachWatch continuously monitors for compromised credentials and notifies you if any of your records are at risk.
To start your BreachWatch scan, from the left navigation menu, click
BreachWatch > Let's Begin
BreachWatch will then scan your records and report any risks associated with them. Clicking each record listed will allow you view the steps needed to resolve each risk.
Resolving the risk requires you to change the password at the affected website. Once you have done that, be sure to update the corresponding record in your Keeper Vault with the same password.
If you click
Ignore, then that record will be skipped on future scans until the password is reset. You may also do nothing (deferring a response) and leave the risky password unchanged and thus still at risk.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) provides an extra layer of security when logging into your Keeper Vault or another site or application by requiring a secondary passcode upon logging in.
Keeper provides two ways to take advantage of 2FA:
To log into your Keeper Vault.
To login into any site or application from your Keeper Vault by embedding a Two-Factor code into your records.
To enable 2FA for your Keeper vault, from the Account Dropdown Menu, click
Settings > Security , toggle "Two-Factor Authentication" on and select your 2FA method.
(1) The Text Message toggle is on by default. Select a Region from the dropdown (US+1 by default), enter your 10 digit phone number including your area code and click
(2) To verify that you trust this number and device, enter the Keeper Web code that was sent to the phone number you provided. Select your 2FA code duration from the dropdown menu and click
(3) Backup codes will be shown next. If you are unable to receive Two-Factor codes via the phone number you entered, you can enter one of the codes listed instead. Click
I have written these codes downto finish.
(1) Toggle "Google and Microsoft Authenticator (TOTP)" on and click
(2) Using the device that runs the Google or Microsoft Authenticator App, scan the QR code provided. The app will then acknowledge the QR code and produce a verification code.
(3) Enter that verification code and click
(4) Backup codes will be shown next. If you are unable to receive Two-Factor codes via the phone number you entered, you can enter one of the codes listed instead. Click
I have written these codes down to finish.
Keeper DNA is a Two-Factor Authentication method that uses your smart watch as your second factor.
To use this feature, toggle the switch next to Keeper DNA, then follow these links to set up KeeperDNA on your preferred platform:
(1) At your target website, visit the two-factor authentication screen which is usually located within security settings. It is sometimes referred to as "login verification" or "two-step verification". Screengrab the QR pattern or copy the secret code to clipboard.
(2) Within a Keeper record, select
Edit > Add Two-Factor Code
(3) Upload the screengrab of the Two-Factor QR pattern (with security key) associated with the site or application. If there isn't a QR pattern, use the manual entry method. Enter the code given under “Secret Key”, often a 32-digit code and fill out the rest of the fields.
(4) After adding the security key to the vault record a Two-Factor Code will be generated inside the Keeper record.
(5) The two-factor code will be regenerated frequently and can then be copied and filled into the site or app when prompted after logging in with a username and password.
To increase security, Keeper supports FIDO-compatible U2F hardware-based security key devices such as YubiKey and Google Titan keys as a second factor. A user can register up to five security keys. Any one of those keys will unlock the account.
Settings > Security > Security Keys select
Make sure the security key is NOT already inserted into your USB port and click
Insert the security key into the USB port, name the key and click
