In honor of National Tell a Joke Day this weekend (August 16th to be exact), Keeper would like to remind everyone that cybersecurity is no laughing matter. Cyberattacks now cost consumers and businesses billions of dollars each year. Really, we aren’t exaggerating. According to a recent study from the Center for Strategic and International Studies and McAfee, cyberattacks have cost the global economy a “conservative” estimate of $445 billion. In addition, attacks account for the loss of 350,000 jobs in the U.S. and Europe. These staggering numbers once again demonstrate the importance of Keeper. With the constant risk of cyber threat looming, diligent password management is essential. Keeper encourages users to change passwords on their most important and frequently used sites every six months. Passwords should also contain letters, numbers and symbols which can be accomplished with Keeper. Additionally, our new Secure File Storage feature allows users the ability to upload and

As much as we hate to admit it, summer is almost over. And that means that it s time to start thinking about (dare we say it) going back to school. We know, it hurts. Sorry. There was a time when school supplies included mostly just pens and notebooks, a planner and maybe some post-its. But times have changed. Nowadays, students need to keep track of passwords, library log-ins, online groups for collaborative projects, and (of course) Facebook profiles. That s why Keeper is the ultimate back-to-school tool. Students of all ages have a lot on their plate, and with Keeper, creating and keeping track of strong passwords is one less thing to worry about. Our new Secure File Storage feature offers students a way to upload and share text files, images, and even Powerpoint projects with others. Plus, once uploaded to the Keeper Vault, those files are safe and can be accessed from any computer. Gone are the days of homework getting forgotten, lost, or eaten. (Sorry kids: Time to find new ex
