Keeper Protects Confidential Data on iOS Devices


Keeper Protects Confidential Data on iOS Devices

By Greg Tavarez

Hybrid workforces are the norm today, and employees can be effective working from just about anywhere. If they need to travel for any reason, the option to take work with them is there. There are risks when it comes to cybersecurity that range from unsecured home devices when using personal devices to open Wi-Fi networks that put confidential data at risk.

Businesses looking for that first line of protection that safeguards systems and data turn to Keeper’s easy-to-use cybersecurity platform, built on a foundation of zero trust and zero knowledge security, to protect every user on every device, no matter the location.

That includes iOS devices. Keeper’s latest iOS updates integrates the One-Time Share feature to enable secure record sharing on a time-limited basis and Siri Shortcuts to provide users a faster way to control their Keeper Password Manager.

One-Time Share is a secure way to send confidential information to a co-worker without exposing information over email, text message or messaging. The record data is decrypted locally on the recipient's device using 256-bit AES, and all requests to the server are signed with elliptic-curve cryptography.

Share links automatically expire at a time of choosing. As an additional layer of security, One-Time Shares are device-locked which means that only the original recipient is able to access the data.

With the Siri Shortcut integration, users get things done more quickly on Keeper’s Password Manager by asking Siri. To utilize Siri Shortcut, begin each phrase with “Hey Siri” and follow it up with the likes of “make a Keeper record,” “make a Keeper password,” “display Keeper verification codes” or “display Keeper shared records.” A list of shortcuts is available.

It should be noted that shortcuts work only for those who are logged into Keeper. Siri Shortcuts are only available in English.

"With One-Time Share, iOS users can securely share critical information, whether that's a family sharing their Wi-Fi password with a friend or a security system code with a houseguest,” said Craig Lurey, chief technology officer and co-founder of Keeper. “Additionally, Siri integration allows users to control Keeper more easily with voice commands.”

The iOS updates continue to show Keeper’s commitment to protecting what matters most to businesses.
