Keeper is pleased to announce an updated version of Keeper Desktop App that incorporates a major new productivity enhancement: Windows Hello, a biometrics-based technology that allows users to authenticate and log in to their Windows devices using a fingerprint or facial recognition.
How it works
Windows Hello works with Windows 10 and any Hello-compatible fingerprint reader or facial recognition camera. It allows users to log in to their Windows devices by using their camera or fingerprint reader. For more information on setting up Windows Hello, visit Microsoft’s site.
To use Keeper with Windows Hello, access your Vault and enable “Windows Hello Login” within your security settings. Upon your next login to Keeper, Windows Hello will attempt to authenticate your identity. Once authenticated, you’ll automatically be logged into Keeper. This means that you will no longer have to enter your Master Password at the Keeper login screen, which makes the login process faster and easier.
Login with Windows Hello
Want an even more secure option? Set up two-factor authentication (2FA) on your Keeper Vault using a Yubikey as your second factor. Use your fingerprint or face to authenticate with Windows Hello, then insert your Yubikey for totally secure yet simple access.
