Keeper password manager adds fingerprint authentication

November 19, 2015 - 

Keeper has released an updated version of its password manager app with added support for Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which in turn, offers native support for fingerprint sensors, according to a report by Android Headlines.

As a result, Keeper now offers fingerprint authentication on compatible Android devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The app’s fingerprint security integration makes it easier for users to access their private Keeper Vault, as they simply place their finger on the device’s fingerprint sensor to log in.

Once the fingerprint matches with the previously enrolled print, the user will be able to access all any private data including passwords, files, photos and videos.

Additionally, OEMs and cellphone carriers are able to partner with the app and preload Keeper into their devices to provide a customized platform for an improved user experience.

Samsung and Orange have already signed on as partners, and Keeper said it will announce more partners in the near future.

This means that the password manager app could be preloaded on tens of millions of smartphones around the world in the next 18 months.

Keeper can be downloaded for free on the Google Play Store while some in-app purchases are also available to provide higher-levels of security.
