Craig Lurey, CTO and Co-Founder, Keeper Security, said, “We are excited about this update for iOS that will enhance user experience without sacrificing our world-class security.

“The overhaul gives a fresh, updated look with modern styling that is consistent with other Keeper solutions and allows our users to take full advantage of Keeper’s powerful features. Our engineering and design team has done an amazing job increasing the performance and functionality of the app while staying mindful of the importance of the familiarity and consistency Keeper users are accustomed to.”

What is new?

The focus of this release is to improve the mobile app experience for iOS users. To that end, the company has introduced a whole new User Interface. It claims that this contains more user friendly elements and that the design makes it easier to read and navigate on small screens. The latter is a key issue for a lot of mobile apps, not just password vaults.

Keeper has outlined three things it has added to make life easier:

  • Friendlier Interface: Keeper’s streamlined UI reduces grid lines, and introduces cleaner colours and adjustable panes
  • Streamlined Usability: More efficient user workflows reduce the number of clicks necessary to complete a task
  • Accessibility and Inclusion: Upgraded UI provides colours, contrast and font/icon sizes compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standards
  • Support for Self-Destruct role enforcement police
  • Additional 2FA time options (12 hours, 24 hours) in the selector

Looking at the release notes, Keeper has also addressed three bugs. One of these deals with using Autofill on large vault accounts where the device has memory constraints.

Enterprise Times: What does this mean?

Anything that makes password managers easier and more user-friendly is to be welcomed. By updating the UI, Keeper Security will hope it can attract a wider customer base on iOS. Making the UI cleaner and more modern is part of this. Mobile UIs are constantly changing and it is easy to look old and out of date if you are not adopting the current look and feel.
