Keeper vs KeePass: Which Password Manager Is Right for You?

KeeperKeePass
Zero-Knowledge Architecture

Keeper is built with a proprietary zero-knowledge security architecture, meaning all encryption and decryption is done locally on the user’s device. Each record is encrypted using AES-256 with a different and unique key that is randomly generated, client-side.

KeePass only encrypts the database as a whole; it does not encrypt every record individually.

Security Infrastructure and Policies

Keeper has the longest-standing SOC 2 Type 2, ISO 27001 and TRUSTe certification in the industry. Keeper’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) ensures strict security controls are in place to protect customer data and ensure the secure operation of products and services.

KeePass has not exhibited the same rigor in security practices. It has yet to obtain SOC 2 Type 2 and ISO 27001 certifications.

Storage and Security in One Place

Keeper stores all your information in one place with a proprietary zero-knowledge security architecture, thereby protecting your employees' information while making it easily accessible from all of their devices.

KeePass only stores files locally. In order to access your passwords from another device, you must store your KeePass database in Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive or a similar cloud-synced folder. Hosting your business passwords on a third-party site is a security risk.

Admin Console

Keeper offers a comprehensive administrative console so organizations have visibility into and control over their employees' password security. Further, delegated admin rights can be extended to department leads to oversee employee access and privileges.

KeePass doesn't offer an administrative console or provide any administrative controls. KeePass requires third-party plug-ins in order to support any administrative features.

Record Sharing

Keeper offers robust sharing so you can securely share credentials, documents, records, folders and files with anyone using the Keeper platform.

Records can be shared indefinitely or users can leverage Keeper’s “One-Time Share” providing time-limited secure sharing of a record to anyone without having to create a Keeper account.

KeePass does not natively support sharing and requires users to set up a separate database and share the master password to that database with anyone you want to share a password with, negating the security you receive from using a password manager.

Multi-Platform Support

Keeper works on every mobile device, computer and operating system that you use, and syncs instantly across all devices.

KeePass does not have any native mobile apps. Therefore, their mobile installations are from third parties and not from KeePass directly.

Because KeePass is an open-source solution, there is a general lack of consistency in features, functionality and design across user environments.

User-Friendly Interface and Better Functionality

Keeper has a sleek interface and robust functionality. By offering a seamless onboarding process and a great user experience, Keeper makes it simple to safeguard your employees’ passwords.

KeePass has a steep learning curve and an outdated user interface. Some features are only available through third-party plugins.

Better Customer Service and Support

Keeper knows your questions matter and has agents ready to help, giving you the option to speak to a person over the phone. Keeper also offers product training and onboarding with your subscription.

KeePass only provides self-service materials for customer support.
