Faculty and staff may register for an Enterprise Keeper account to store UA passwords. Visit the following link to activate your Keeper Enterprise account with your myBama username and password: Activate Keeper for University Use
The UA Enterprise Keeper account is protected with Duo two-factor authentication, so be prepared to follow the Duo prompt with your Duo-registered device. If you are not an active Duo user, please activate your account at duo.ua.edu.
Next, download the Keeper browser extension and desktop app. Keeper works as an extension of your browser to keep your passwords in a secure and encrypted environment. Download the extension for your browser at www.keepersecurity.com/download-web. Once the browser extensions are installed, log in with your new Keeper credentials and you’re ready to use Keeper! If you are transferring passwords from LastPass to Keeper, the desktop is the easiest way to do so. You can download the desktop app at www.keepersecurity.com/download-desktop.
All Keeper Enterprise users can create a free, Keeper Family Plan for up to 5 family members with unlimited devices. Once the user sets up the Family Plan, each family member receives their own vault. They can also share passwords between family members using either Shared Folders or individual record sharing. You can learn how to create a free Family Plan account from an Enterprise account at docs.keeper.io/enterprise-guide/personal-vaults-for-enterprise-and-business-users. If your time with UA comes to an end, Keeper will transition your account to a 30-day “Free Trial” account.
Students may register for a Keeper Unlimited account to store personal passwords. Unlimited accounts must be registered with your Crimson UA email address. Visit the following link to activate your Keeper Unlimited account: Activate Keeper for Personal Use
The link will request permissions from Microsoft and DUO before allowing you to continue to the activation page. Once you have registered and clicked “Finish Activation,” you will be taken to Keeper to create your account. Be sure to use your Crimson email account. You can find step-by-step activation instructions on this page: https://oit.ua.edu/keeper-for-students-walkthrough/
Next, if you have not already, download the Keeper browser extensions. Keeper works as an extension of your browser to keep your passwords in a secure and encrypted environment. Download the extension for your browser at https://www.keepersecurity.com/download. You can also download the Keeper mobile app to your mobile device to keep your passwords secure on the go. Visit your device’s app store to download the app.
Once the browser extensions and mobile apps are installed, log in with your new Keeper credentials, and you’re ready to use Keeper! Once a year, Keeper will send an email to confirm that you are still a current UA student to continue your free Keeper Unlimited account.
