Congratulations on successfully creating your Keeper account! You are well on your way to securing your passwords and protecting your personal data. If you signed up for Keeper on your mobile device, you can access your Keeper Vault on your desktop computer by visiting keepersecurity.com/vault using the same email address and Master Password you used to sign up.
When you login to your Web Vault for the first time, you are presented with the option to import your existing passwords. The Keeper Import Tool automatically imports the unprotected passwords you may have stored in your web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, Internet Explorer and iCloud Keychain, directly into your vault.
If you don’t have any passwords saved in your web browsers, you can skip this step and continue on to our next video tutorial, titled “Create a Record” which will walk you through the process of creating your first password record. Otherwise click Install and continue watching.
If you’ve already dismissed the prompt, no problem, just click on your email address in the upper right hand corner of your vault and select Settings, Import and Import again. The next screen will ask you to install the “Keeper Import Tool”.
The Keeper Import Installer will begin to download to the “downloads” folder of your computer. While the file is downloading, copy the code that is displayed in the Keeper window by clicking the copy button. You will be prompted to paste this code into the Keeper import screen later during the import process. Once the file has finished downloading, open it and click Run if you are using a Windows computer.
Mac (Safari) Only
At this point, Mac users must take a few additional steps to complete the password import process. If you are a Window’s user, feel free to skip ahead as I review these steps in detail.
If you are using a Mac, you may be asked to grant permission to Keeper Import to use “Accessibility” which is necessary to access the saved passwords in your Safari browser. If you don’t have any passwords stored in Safari, you can click Skip. To proceed to your computer’s Accessibility settings, click Next. Now click Open System Preferences, then click the lock and enter your computer password and Unlock to make changes. Next, check the box next to "Keeper Import". Click the lock again and exit out of that window. Click Next once more on the Accessibility prompt.
A new prompt will appear to import passwords from your Safari browser. Again you can click Skip, otherwise click Next and enter your computer password to unlock your saved passwords. Once unlocked, all of your stored passwords from Safari will be displayed.
Windows & Mac
Moving forward, whether you are on a Mac or Windows computer, Keeper will now ask you to paste the code you copied earlier from the Vault Import Screen. Paste the code in the space provided using the paste command on your keyboard or the right-click context menu, then click Import.
Returning to your vault, you will see all of the passwords that Keeper could find on your local web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Review the logins and passwords and if necessary, deselect any you don’t want to include in the import to your Keeper vault. Click Add to Keeper to proceed.
Now that you’ve completed the import, verify that the data appears properly in your vault. As a final step, we recommend deleting the passwords stored in your web browsers and disabling your browser's built-in password saving features which can typically be found in the “Settings'' or “Preferences” menu of your browser.
Please follow the link below for browser-specific instructions for disabling these features. docs.keeper.io/user-guides/browser-extensions
As a final note, Keeper can also import your passwords from other password managers or a csv text file. Follow the link below for detailed instructions on the various methods of importing data to your vault.
