Keeper Announces Groundbreaking Updates for iOS 8

Features Include Convenient and Secure Touch ID Login and FastFill™ for Safari

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - September 09, 2014) - Today, Keeper, the world's most popular password manager and digital vault, announced innovative new features for iOS 8. Updates for iOS 8 include Touch ID fingerprint login and FastFill™ for Safari.

"We are very excited about Keeper's updates for iOS 8," said Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-Founder of Keeper. "We continue to be impressed with Apple and always look forward to having Keeper on the cutting edge of helping our users with fast and secure password and file management on their mobile devices."

"Keeper Touch ID login and FastFill Safari were created to help users login to their Keeper vaults and websites fast -- while maintaining robust security. Keeper's newest features we be incredibly useful to all Apple iOS 8 users," said Craig Lurey, CTO and Co-Founder of Keeper.

Touch ID Fingerprint Login to Keeper

With the launch of the iPhone 5s, users have had the ability to use Touch ID fingerprint login in place of entering their Apple ID passwords to purchase content from the iTunes Store, App Store and iBooks Store. And now with iOS 8, Keeper users can use Touch ID technology to access their Keeper vault on their device. As biometric authentication technology grows increasingly popular in the mobile industry, Keeper's optional Touch ID feature gives users fast, convenient and secure access to the Keeper vault using just a fingerprint. Users can also login using their Keeper master password and enable two-factor authentication for additional security.

To turn on Touch ID authentication, visit Keeper's 'Options' screen.

FastFill for Safari 

Keeper released FastFill for Android in July, allowing users to securely and quickly auto-fill their login credentials on websites and mobile apps. FastFill is now an integral part of the Keeper app on Android, providing a seamless and secure user experience across all mobile apps and browsers, including Chrome. With iOS 8, Keeper is bringing FastFill to Safari on mobile devices so users can auto-fill and create new password records for any website using Apple's new iOS 8 extensions support.

To activate FastFill on iOS 8 follow these steps:

1. Launch Safari.

2. Select ↑ then scroll over to the right and tap More.

3. On the Activities screen, turn ON Keeper FastFill.

Keeper also offers FastFill on all desktop computers through browser extensions on Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer. All browser extensions are available at https://keepersecurity.com/download.

"The Keeper development team built Touch ID Login and FastFill for Safari with the same military-grade encryption and security that has helped make Keeper the most secure product in the industry," says Lurey.
