If you haven’t noticed already, smartphone users are interacting with numerous mobile applications continuously on a daily basis. Currently app usage accounts for nearly 86 percent of the average U.S. mobile consumers time. With that in mind, more and more applications are requiring passwords to protect your personal information. Entering usernames and passwords is time consuming, which results in some smartphone users repeating the same passwords across numerous accounts. In today’s age, this is an unsafe practice in protecting the security of your accounts, personal information, and identity. Keeper Security wants you to continue to enjoy your favorite applications, except now with the safety, security, and convenience of a brand new feature called FastFill. Craig Lurey, CTO & Co-Founder of Keeper, states, “Logging in and out of apps was a major pain point for consumers and professionals until now. FastFill solves this problem – it’s easy to use, fast and secure.” Currently FastFill is only available for Android, but iOS users will see FastFill later this year on their iOS devices.
So how does fast fill work? Once you open an application you have the option to allow Keeper Security to FastFill the saved login and password information from your password vault. FastFill allows you to safely and securely enjoy signing into all of your favorite applications this way. Also, let’s say you download and start using a brand new app and it requires creating a username and password. Keeper Security can assign a discrete and secure password that will then be saved in your password vault and synced across all your devices. It’s amazing and it’s really that simple.
Keeper didn’t stop with just FastFill. Within Keeper Security you can click on the link you’ve saved in your password vault and Keeper will open the browser, navigate to, for example, your banks website and Keeper will FastFill your username and password. This allows you to quickly start transferring money, paying bills, or trading stocks in no time at all. Best part of all, your credentials are still protected behind Keeper’s military grade security! Convenience and security are brought together in one happy, healthy, and secure marriage. FastFill is an added feature that’s included across all price points for Keeper Security.
Just when you thought Keeper Security was done being awesome, they’ve introduced a new feature called Secure File Storage too. This new feature gives users the ability to upload confidential files and share them vault-to-vault. This feature is completely different than email-to-email since sharing files through Keeper are done behind higher levels of security than just email accounts. With the digital age we live in, there are a thousands of precious and confidential files stored on our computers nowadays that we want store and share safely and securely. Keeper wants to make sure your precious and confidential files are kept safe behind their military level encryption whether you decide to simply store them for you and your family or share them with others.
If you’re wondering what precious and confidential files Keeper is talking about, they’re referring to your financial statements, private photos or videos, yearly tax documents, paycheck stubs, just to name a few.
Recently I spoke with Darren Guccione, CEO and co-founder of Keeper, and he mentioned how cumbersome it is to finance or even refinance a home because of all the documentation required. Having gone through this numerous times before, I knew exactly what he was referring to. With Secure File Storage, users can create a secure digital file with all the documentation they need to provide a mortgage agent. Simply share the file with them and viola, they’re able to access all the information in that particular shared file. If you’re missing a document, simply add it to the file, notify the person you’re sharing the file with of the updates and they can access it when they securely login to their Keeper account. Just like FastFill, it’s really that simple. Unlike FastFill though, Secure File Storage does require an additional charge for service.

- 10 GB – $9.99/yr
- 50 GB – $39.99/yr
- 100 GB – $79.99/yr
