Keeper - Password Manager User Guide (for Employees)

Here are the user-level guides for using Keeper Password Manager to manage and store credentials. This article is intended for Faculty/Staff. A password manager is a software application designed to store and manage your online credentials securely. It helps generate, retrieve, and keep track of complex passwords for different websites and services, ensuring that you use strong, unique passwords for each account.
