Keeper Security introduces dark mode for Android users
Wed, 29th Nov 2023

Keeper Security has announced its latest update, enabling Android users to toggle the theme of their interface. According to the company, this follows their efforts to offer an optimal user experience without jeopardising security or performance.

The company, renowned for its security solutions safeguarding passwords, passkeys, privileged access, secrets and remote connections, today unveiled a dark mode experience for the Keeper platform on Android devices. This update underlines their ongoing commitment to delivering state-of-the-art interface design aimed at facilitating maximum user comfort and customisation without compromising functionality or security.

This innovative feature permits an enhanced user experience by allowing individuals to select a display theme that mirrors their personal preferences. An added advantage of the dark mode is that it makes content more readable and less demanding to view, particularly valuable in minimising eye fatigue in dimly lit environments. For mobile apps and websites, the 'dark mode' can be more energy-efficient, thereby contributing to longer battery life, reduced power usage and a more eco-friendly user experience.

"Dark Mode has seen a surge in popularity across most major operating systems, including Android, as a result of both aesthetic appeal and growing awareness of its practical advantages," said Craig Lurey, CTO and Co-founder of Keeper Security. "Keeper's users appreciate the capability to adjust the platform to their preference on their devices. Our team is unceasingly striving to uncover and execute the features and tools that will consistently improve our users' experience."

This announcement is the latest in a series of thrilling updates to the user interface spanning Keeper's personal, family, and enterprise services. Keeper has adopted a progressive strategy to enhance user experience, continually ameliorating the aesthetics, feel and usability of its applications while adhering to the world-class functionality and safety that its users have come to expect. Android users can also anticipate passkey management arriving on the Keeper platform shortly.

The upgraded Keeper Password Manager app for Android is available to download on the Google Play Store, where Keeper boasts a rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars based on over 100k reviews and 10M+ downloads. The app will be automatically updated for all existing users.
