We have all been waiting for this day to arrive.  Some of us have been marking off days on a calendar.  September 12: The day the iPhone 5 is revealed!  The new iPhone has been all over the news.  Along with other media outlets, Cnet is even hosting a Live Blog from Apple’s iPhone event.  We of course understand the anticipation that comes with revealing a new piece of technology; the iPhone hasn’t been updated since October 2011!  What has been updated since then is Keeper!  Keeper is now offering version 5.0 with much faster, more advanced features!

Only You Have Access to Your Cloud

by , on

Imagine lifting open your laptop screen to log into your social media accounts to find nothing.  Your Twitter, Facebook, Google and LinkedIn accounts have been deleted.  You shut your laptop and open it again to your laptop rebooting itself.  You scramble for your phone or tablet to double check the unsettling reality but there is nothing.  It’s all gone.  All of your data is wiped clean and your digital existence has also vanished.

This horrific sequence of events was accomplished by hackers accessing your iCloud account – the online spot where we trust to store our data that we can conveniently access remotely.  These hackers didn’t scramble to figure out your password.  Instead, they pretended to be you during a phone conversation with representatives, explaining “your” inability to access “your” account.  After a short phone call, the hackers have a temporary password, an open door to everything you’ve ever stored on the web.

A few days ago, this actually happened.  It wasn’t the ability to crack an iCloud password, it was the faulty security measures that certain companies take that make your information vulnerable to an attack.  This type of attack is terrifying as the digital world continues to grow in the direction of using a Cloud as a backup.  Flaws like this need to be addressed before a storm opens up and suddenly no one is safe anymore.  No one should be able to access information except the owner.  Keeper understands and believes in this very important security practice.

Keeper allows you to not only store your password information and sync to all of your devices, but it allows you to backup your vital information to our encrypted Cloud for full protection.   By using Keeper, you don’t need to worry about a hacker contacting Customer Support and gaining access to your information.  All of your data is stored as ‘binary’ files, that are completely encrypted and not readable.  We keep these ‘binary’ files for one reason: to be able to offer customers the Cloud Restore feature.  This feature is available only if you have your Master Password, email address and security answer that you chose and only you know.  So don’t worry about someone finding a piece of your mail or the last four digits of your credit card information and using them as the tools to destroy your digital existence.  Keeper 5.0 is here to give you the comfort of data security!  Plus, there’s unlimited record storage and self-destruct protection that will clear your local information if anyone besides yourself tries to access your Keeper account.

A New Day, A New Security Breach

by , on

Not so long ago, many Dropbox users began receiving spam emails about casinos and gambling sites and almost immediately went to the Dropbox site to express their concerns.  After nearly two weeks Dropbox was able to confirm their unfortunate situation.  Hackers were able to locate usernames and passwords from third party sites and access users accounts.

Dropbox has been working hard to resolve this issue and improve the security of your accounts.  Through their blog,  they have offered the below steps to ensure your information is safe and secure:

  • Two-factor authentication, a way to optionally require two proofs of identity (such as your password and a temporary code sent to your phone) when signing in. (Coming in a few weeks)
  • New automated mechanisms to help identify suspicious activity. They’ll continue to add more of these over time.
  • A new page that lets you examine all active logins to your account.
  • In some cases, they may require you to change your password. (For example, if it’s commonly used or hasn’t been changed in a long time)

Dropbox also recommends using a strong and unique password for each site that requires login credentials.  Here at Keeper we understand how difficult it is to remember hundreds of login credentials, which is why Keeper can help you!  Within Keeper you can store all private information behind your strong Master Password.  You only need to remember that single password to access your numerous accounts.  Keeper is one of the world’s most downloaded password security applications and is available for desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones and more.  Keeper uses military-grade 128 AES security and all password hashes are supported with BCrypt.  Protect yourself from unnecessary security breaches!  Use Keeper now!

How Much is Your Private Information Worth?

by , on

How much do you love and rely on your laptop? For many people, it’s a prized and invaluable possession. Now, imagine if your laptop was stolen. One minute it’s on the cafe table next to you and by the time you get your coffee, poof! It’s gone. If you’ve never been a victim of theft, you can imagine a very vulnerable and gut-wrenching feeling that something of value to you was taken, leaving you confused and astonished. It’s no secret that laptops hold irreplaceable private, personal and business information, and that we bookmark everything from credit card sites to bank accounts.

But beware! A study completed by Absolute determined that Chicago was the number one place for laptop theft with Houston and Detroit following close behind as second and third place cities. Where does your city rank? According to Absolute, contributing factors include lack of care by the owner, airport employees interested in resale, and large groups of people causing a distraction while the theft occurs. So if your stolen laptop is being sold to a third party, makes you wonder how much they receive for a laptop full of your private information, right?

While we can’t avoid all forms of theft, we can choose to protect our private information by using Keeper 5.0! Keeper is one of the world’s most downloaded password security and management applications. It is available for desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones and more. Keeper uses military-grade 128 AES security and all password hashes are supported with BCrypt. All of your private information is stored behind your Master Password. Plus, if you happen to become victim of theft, after five unsuccessful attempts at cracking your strong password, Keeper will erase all of your information. But don’t worry – your information can be backed up to the Cloud! You can also personalize your Keeper theme to make it feel like your own.

How Strong are Your Passwords?

by , on

Technology surrounds us. Most devices we use allow us to access sites that contain our most personal and confidential information. We rely on our passwords to keep all of our private information safe and secure. Yet we don’t always use strategic and strong passwords. Many people reuse the same password for multiple sites, or a simple combination of addresses, birthdays and phone numbers. A recent study completed by the University of Cambridge shows that millennial, who are more tech-savvy, choose weaker passwords. This study concluded that Baby Boomers, people over the age of 55, were more likely to choose passwords that were twice as strong as people 25 years old and younger.

Also, younger people generally take advantage of online sites much more than the older population. You’d think that the more online access we have, the stronger our passwords would be. However, one particular reason for simple and reused passwords is the plethora of login credentials we have accumulated. Think about all of the sites you use on a daily basis that require a username and password. While we love to take advantage and have fun with these sites, keeping track of all of the login credentials can get out of hand.

Keeper has the solution for you! Keeper Password and Data Vault allows you store all of your username and password combinations behind your single Master Password. Instead of attempting to remember 100 login credentials, you only need to remember one! Keeper also stores your information using military-grade 128-AES and all password hashes are supported with BCrypt to give you the confidence that your private information is safe. Make your Master Password as strong as you can be and rely on Keeper to keep you secure!

LinkedIn Passwords Leaked, 6.5 Million Accounts Compromised

by , on

It seems that every day brings an unfortunate new breach of security. Yesterday LinkedIn was the victim and 6.5 million of its users passwords were compromised. In a blog post, LinkedIn Director Vicente Silveria stated that they are continuing to investigate the situation and provided steps for the account holders who were included in the hack. Members who had accounts that were compromised will receive an email with instructions on how to reset their password. But it wasn’t only LinkedIn that was victim today. The online dating site eHarmony reportedly had 1.5 million of its users’ passwords leaked. Even worse, eHarmony hack was possibly completed by the same suspect who hacked LinkedIn.

As each day passes and security breaches continue to happen, it proves to us that there is a security issue that needs to be addressed. The LinkedIn passwords that were stolen were easily deciphered which shows “lack of care for software security.” Software Engineers for companies should have a solution for security from the beginning. LinkedIn did hash the passwords, but the missing step was encryption. Encryption would have made it extremely difficult for hackers to analyze the file of all the passwords.

So what exactly happens to those 6.5 million passwords that were stolen? They were posted in an online forum based in Russia for any hacker who wishes to get their dangerous fingertips on.

Make sure that only your fingertips get a hold of your private and personal information by using Keeper 5.0. All password hashes are supported with BCrypt and 128-AES for symmetric ciphers to keep your passwords safe and secure. Keeper 5.0 is the newest release which includes smoother auto-sync feature for all of your devices and one-click backup so you never lose your information. Download Keeper 5.0 now!

Beware of Flame!

by , on

The Flame virus that attacked Iran’s key oil company and caused massive data loss, could be a potential threat to other countries as well. The International Telecommunications Union will be issuing a warning about Flame and its dangerous abilities. The virus is known to have stolen sensitive information and audio recordings from top officials. Even worse, Flame is supposedly more powerful than the virus known as Stuxnet, a 2010 virus that attacked an Iranian nuclear plant.

In one of our earlier blog entries, we talked about the potential of the Cyber War and the effects that a dangerous virus could have on a nation. Whether the victim be an oil industry or a banking system, a virus powerful enough to attack any infrastructure that we need to survive, is terrifying. Some top officials believe Flame’s reputation is exaggerated and that we’re overreacting, but how important is knowing that these necessary infrastructures are secure?

For most people, the first step is making sure your personal passwords and information are safe, which is why it’s important to be prepared by using Keeper 5.0! Keeper will make sure that not even the smallest security breach reaches you. Using military grade 128-bit AES security, Keeper secures all of your information behind your single strong Master Password, backs up your data to the Cloud, and is available for all of your devices!
