You can use Keeper Security’s password manager to store and protect more than just your passwords. Keeper’s Secure File Storage is a popular add-on service that allows you to additionally store documents including credit card information, healthcare and vaccination records, insurance and loan paperwork, deeds, titles, bank account statements, passport photos and more.
Find out more about how people and businesses use Keeper Password Manager, and the benefits of adding Secure File Storage to your Keeper plan.
What Is Keeper Password Manager Used For?
Keeper Password Manager was designed to help individuals and businesses manage their passwords and sensitive information, and protect them from getting into the hands of cybercriminals. People use Keeper Password Manager to generate and store passwords, securely share sensitive data, store files and monitor their credentials on the dark web.
Generate and store passwords
Keeper allows users to securely store their passwords in a digital vault, eliminating the need to remember multiple passwords. Keeper also generates strong, unique passwords for different accounts so users don’t resort to using weak and reused passwords.
People also use Keeper to securely share passwords and files with trusted individuals or team members, and can do so without ever disclosing the actual password. Keeper provides a range of customizable sharing options, enabling users to define the level of access each recipient has. Whether it’s read-only access or full editing capabilities, users have granular control over what actions can be performed with the shared information. This empowers individuals and organizations to collaborate efficiently without compromising security.
In addition to passwords, Keeper provides the option to store other types of documents such as financial records and important files. Keeper eliminates the need for multiple disjointed storage methods, providing a centralized hub for all sensitive data.
Monitor credentials on the dark web
Keeper offers a dark web monitoring service for individuals and businesses called BreachWatch®. BreachWatch notifies users if their passwords have been compromised in a data breach and published on the dark web. By actively monitoring the dark web for any signs of compromised credentials, Keeper provides a vital early warning system for its users.
Emergency access is a feature where users can designate emergency contacts that will be able to access their accounts in case of an emergency. In situations where users are unable to manage their accounts due to unforeseen events, these emergency contacts are granted controlled access to the account, with predefined permissions that users have set in advance.
The Benefits of Keeper Secure File Storage
Adding Keeper Secure File Storage will allow you to safely store anything you want to protect, giving you peace of mind that your sensitive data is safe.
Centralize and secure all of your important documents
Not being able to locate an important document when you need it — whether it’s the deed to your home or your company’s insurance policy paperwork — can be disastrous. Keeper’s Secure File Storage is your digital safety deposit box, a secure place to store critical paperwork so that you can immediately find and access it when you need it. You can use it to store a range of items such as insurance and loan documents, vaccination records, healthcare files, property deeds and titles, bank account statements, passport pictures, lists of clients and vendors, and various other paperwork.
Protect images and videos
Personal and family photographs and home videos preserve treasured memories and are irreplaceable. Storing backups of images and videos in Keeper ensures that your priceless memories are kept safe.
People and families aren’t the only ones who use Keeper’s Secure File Storage for images and videos; businesses need secure storage for organizational assets such as blueprints, advertising materials, product prototypes and designs, company logos and graphics, employee ID photos, and employee training videos.
Store digital certificates and SSH keys
Many organizations rely on digital certificates and keys to access critical systems. If cybercriminals get hold of these certificates or keys, the results could be damaging, so it is of the utmost importance to store them securely.
In addition to saving digital certificates and SSH keys in Keeper as a custom field or note, organizations can also use Secure File Storage to upload them as a file attachment. Then, administrators can use Keeper Commander, a command-line SDK and toolkit for DevOps users, to use the credentials or keys to easily and securely connect to remote systems using the stored credentials or SSH keys.
Examples of the types of certificates that can be stored in Keeper include:
- SSL Certificates
- SSH Keys
- RSA Key Pairs
- Code Signing Certificates
- API Keys
Securely share digital assets
Keeper Secure File Storage enables efficient, secure, vault-to-vault sharing of stored files with other Keeper users. Just like passwords stored in Keeper, users can set sharing permissions for digital files.
Keeper also allows users to share specific files securely with individuals who may not be Keeper users themselves. This feature is called One-Time Share. With One-Tme Share, users can generate time-limited, encrypted links to the records they wish to share. These links can then be sent to recipients who can access the files without the need for a Keeper account. This not only simplifies the sharing process but also ensures that the highest level of security is maintained, even when sharing with non-Keeper users.
Protect More Than Passwords
Keeper goes beyond password management and enables users to securely store and manage sensitive documents. Keeper aims to provide users with a secure and accessible way to manage various forms of confidential information. Not a Keeper customer yet? Businesses can sign up for a free 14-day trial.
