Keeper Security

Posted by on May 21, 2015

Okay, I’ll own up to this; I have a massive password file on my computer. Sure, we’re not supposed to do that but come on, how the heck am I supposed to remember every single password from just about 20 years on the internet?

Keeper

Smartphones are a bit different though. Sure, I could upload my password file via either Evernote or Dropbox, but I’m not quite that trusting of it. Not only that, but I don’t need every single password on my phone. I do need certain passwords though, such as when I go to restaurants that have wi-fi and I don’t want to keep asking them what the password is.

Keeper is a smartphone app for, I believe, every type of smartphone that’s out there. What it allows you to do is put all of your passwords in it and then you only have to memorize one overall password to open the program up. If you pay for it, which is only $9 or so a year, you can add the application to any of your other laptops, tablets or computers and sync the information so that no matter what you’re carrying around with you, so that you can use each item to add passwords.

I have to admit that I think it’s pretty fantastic, but there are a couple of small downsides. For one, you must, and I stress MUST, remember your password to Keeper. If you forget that you only get 5 shots at getting in. At that point it disables your account and erases everything; ouch!

You also need to make sure that, if you’re deciding to change email addresses, you get in there and update the email address before you change up. It’s not something most people would think about since, once you have the app on your smartphone, you’d ever have to deal with. So far I’m lucky to still be able to get into my app without it asking me for an email address; whew!

Anyway, not only do I recommend this app for your phone, but look, I can write a short post! 🙂

Cool thanks Mitch! I’ll have to go find it on the Google Play store if it’s there and check it out.

Don’t really need the app since most of my passwords I have written down on a notepad next to me, but will still check out the app itself for maybe future reference (or a possible future blog post on mobile apps).

Daniel, it comes in handy because I eat out a lot and many of those places have wi-fi but you have to have a password to get in. It just helps.

Daniel White:

Not sure what you use, but in that kind of scenario I’ve got an Android powered phone that will remember any passwords to any WiFi spots I connect to, so don’t have to reenter them when I want to reconnect.

Honestly though I normally don’t connect to public WiFi spots, since a lot of them are unsecure.

I don’t just travel with my phone. I often go with my Nook, and every once in a while with my laptop. Having access to those passwords in those cases have helped quite a bit.

Daniel White:

Ahhh I see. I do take my laptop when I go places too though I wouldn’t take it to a restaurant with me. I’d take it with me when I go out of town though and then use my phone when I go out to restaurants or stores.

That’s exactly why I started doing it. I was traveling back and forth to Memphis for 18 months, ending up in many different cities along the way and always needing to relearn passwords for different gear.

Are you an affiliate of Keeper Mitch? If so then yes, everyone should get it.
If not, here is another option- Make an encrypted file in Excel and keep that in DropBox or Evernote.
Free and secure.

No, I’m not an affiliate; you don’t see a link right? lol There are always other options; that’s not a bad one.

I have to say We have to try our best to keep security of our smartphones and for that purpose Keeper Security is best.
Keep sharing such apps.

Thanks Rahul; when I can I will, but I have to admit I’m not a big app guy overall.

Before you leave a reply; please see the comment policy if this is your first visit. This blog doesn't accept keyword names. I need a real first name or a legitimate nickname that you're known for. If your name has more than 3 words or the email address begins with "info" or "admin", the comment automatically goes to the spam filter; same if there are any links in the comment or if you don't have a gravatar. If your comment goes to spam for any of these reasons, or any other reason listed in this post, it may never show up on the blog (I do forgive the link issue if you've commented on the blog previously and I'll forgive the gravatar thing for first time visitors). If it goes there for any other reason (and I know some do), I'll pull it out as I don't intentionally moderate any comments on this blog.

One last thing; if your link is an affiliate link or goes back to a strange website or webpage I don't like, if I keep your comment I'll remove your link. That's why I have CommentLuv for blogs; if you have a legitimate business just leave that link & no sub-links. Trust me, it's best to read the comment policy if you don't get it, or never see your comments showing up here.

If you like this post, why not donate to the cause? :-)
