A password manager is one of the essential tools for every active Internet user. It helps you keep track of your passwords (Opens in a new tab) across dozens of websites and apps and avoid getting any of your accounts banned.
There are practically unlimited examples of Password administrator and two well-known applications guard And LastPass. These tools allow you to store your passwords and other types of sensitive credentials in a digital vault and retrieve them whenever you want.
We want to see how Keeper and LastPass compare to each other. We will weigh them based on critical factors such as pricing, features, customer support, and performance. You can also see the above Keeper review (Opens in a new tab) And LastPass review (Opens in a new tab) for more information.
Keeper allows you to store your login details in a digital vault and retrieve them whenever you want. But, it’s not just passwords that you can store. You can also keep other types of sensitive data such as secure notes and debit/credit card information. Your vault is protected by a master password that you create. Use a combination of letters, symbols, and numbers to create a strong password.
For added security, you can enable two-factor authentication on your Keeper account. This way, anytime you want to log in, the app also generates a 10-byte secret key that is sent to you by SMS or an authenticator app, and this key is only valid for 1 minute. Thus, even if someone gets hold of your master password, they won’t be able to break into your vault.
Similarly, LastPass allows you to create a digital vault to store your passwords, and the vault is protected with a master password. After saving your password to a vault, LastPass always remembers it for you and can automatically fill it into account login forms. You can enable two-factor authentication for your LastPass account just as you do for Keeper.
Both platforms offer some additional features to attract users. For example, LastPass offers a dark web monitoring tool that scans your email addresses against a database of compromised credentials to let you know if you’ve been hacked. Keeper offers an encrypted messaging tool to help you communicate with other users securely.
Keeper can be accessed via a web interface, a desktop app (Windows, Linux, and macOS), or a mobile app (iOS and Android). There is also a browser extension that lets you auto-fill passwords into login forms. The apps and web interface provide a very good user experience, with features neatly arranged on the left side of the dashboard. Keeper’s uncluttered interface makes it easy to switch between different features.
You may notice a lag in Keeper’s performance if you store too many passwords or other credentials, think more than a thousand records. But this varies according to the type of device: high-end devices get better performance than low-end ones.
Likewise, LastPass delivers solid performance across the web app, mobile apps, and desktop. The interface looks modern and uncluttered, making it easy to switch between different features. But, you may also notice a lag in LastPass performance if you store a lot of credentials.
Both platforms offer solid performance, but with both of them, we consider Keeper to be the best in this category, as we felt it was faster and easier to use.
You can contact the Keeper support team through a form available on the official website. The form requires you to provide your email address and phone number so that Keeper can provide your feedback through one of these channels.
Free users do not have access to live Keeper support. But there is extensive documentation regarding all aspects of the platform on the official help page and user guides to help you navigate the platform. These are helpful support resources for every free or paid user.
LastPass offers live support via email and phone, but free users do not have access to this support. Otherwise, you can access the official help center which has a plethora of support resources. You can find articles and guides written for all of LastPass’ features. There are also educational videos that give you a more interactive learning experience.
We consider LastPass the best option in this category because it lets you choose how to contact the support team (phone or email). In return, you must fill out an online form to contact Keeper, and it is the company that decides how to contact you for feedback.
Keeper and LastPass both offer free tiers, but they are limited to just one device. If you want to store and retrieve your passwords from multiple devices, you have to pay for a premium subscription.
