Keeper is touted as a secure and convenient password manager. It uses highest levels of security - 256-bit AES encryption and PBKDF2 key derivation. It is also a zero-knowledge provider, or in other words, the app has no idea what your encryption key is, which means only you can get to your information. You can still share private Keeper records with other users, though. Meanwhile, the secure file storage feature lets you store everything confidential in your Keeper vault. The files will be encrypted and secured with the same encryption technology used for guarding your passwords.
How much? Keeper offers free on-device storage. The Sync & Cloud Backup functionality is free for 30 days. Keeper Backup subscriptions with additional storage plans start at $9.99 per year.
