Keeper Security introduces major password manager update for iOS
Wed, 13th Sep 2023

Keeper Security, the provider of zero-trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity software protecting passwords, passkeys, privileged access, secrets and remote connections, has announced the Keeper Password Manager app for iOS, which now features a new, more modern user interface (UI).

The highly-anticipated release includes improved usability, smart searching and faster sync times for customers with large vaults, such as managed service providers (MSPs). Promoting a sleek new look and a more intuitive user experience, the updates are designed to make it easier to take advantage of Keeper's robust password and passkey management features, with enhanced clarity and searchability.

“We are excited about this update for iOS that will enhance user experience without sacrificing our world-class security,” says Craig Lurey, the CTO and co-founder at Keeper Security. 

“The overhaul gives a fresh, updated look with modern styling that is consistent with other Keeper solutions and allows our users to take full advantage of Keeper’s powerful features. Our engineering and design team has done an amazing job increasing the performance and functionality of the app while staying mindful of the importance of the familiarity and consistency Keeper users are accustomed to.”

Keeper has also made iOS device-specific improvements to enhance the mobile app experience. Upon logging in, users are presented with friendly elements and a clean design for easy reading and navigation on smaller screens.

Most notable may be the performance improvements demonstrated in the initial login to a large vault - enabling users to sync, view and search their vaults with lightning speed - even if they have tens of thousands of records.

Highlights of the updated UI include a friendlier interface. Here, the company's streamlined UI reduces grid lines and introduces cleaner colours and adjustable panes. It has also introduced a more efficient user workflow to minimise the clicks necessary to complete a task. The upgraded UI provides colours, contrast and font/icon sizes compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standards.

Like Keeper's Web and Desktop apps, iOS users can now choose record and folder colours for improved organisation. Icons in the app have been updated to be friendlier, more informative and consistent across all of Keeper's platforms.

Keeper Securing encourages users to visit the app store and update their software to experience the exciting new features.

The company also informs that its affordable and easy-to-use solutions are built on zero-trust and zero-knowledge security to protect every user on every device. Its next-generation privileged access management solution deploys in minutes and seamlessly integrates with any tech stack to prevent breaches, reduce help desk costs and ensure compliance. The company provides credential security and hygiene analytics across all endpoints and systems with native SIEM integration. It also simplifies and strengthens auditing and compliance, including support for RBAC, 2FA, FIPS 140-2 encryption, HIPAA, FINRA, SOC, and ITAR.
