HTC has announced that upcoming mobile phones will feature Keeper Security, a popular password management app, built-in at the system level. There are already a number of options available, like 1Password, LastPass and others, but with this HTC will make things even easier for its customers. The integration will begin later this year on select HTC smartphones, allowing the customers to generate, store and access their login information without the need to install another app.
With the deeper integration, HTC owners will be able to access login information in Keeper by tapping a menu that will be embedded in log in screens of websites and native applications. You can check out all of the details of the new partnership below.
HTC Selects Keeper to Enhance Mobile Device Security
Keeper Security, Inc., the creator of Keeper, the world's most downloaded password manager and digital vault, announced today that HTC, a leading smartphone innovator, has chosen Keeper as its global partner to protect its customers' passwords and private information. HTC conducted a comprehensive review of the best password management applications and selected Keeper based on its superior security, features and in-depth experience working with leading OEMs and mobile operators. Keeper will be available this year on select HTC models. Users will have the option to use the premium or free version.
Through this partnership, HTC customers will now have an easy-to-use and secure application that generates strong passwords and autofills login credentials across native applications and browsers. Keeper and HTC collaborated to create a unique and intuitive user experience to ensure that mobile subscribers are securely storing their information and utilizing Keeper. When consumers reach the login screen of a website or native application on their HTC device, they will be prompted to sign up for Keeper in order to manage and store their login credentials and passwords. By clicking a "snackbar" embedded into the login screen, consumers can immediately activate their Keeper account.
"Providing security on our devices is a top priority to ensure an optimal customer experience," said Paavan Avadhanula, AVP of Corporate Development and Partnership with HTC. "Our partnership with Keeper will help protect our customers and make good password management easier than ever."
"Smartphones are the unified devices for online access. Convenience, security and privacy are all major concerns for mobile users. With Keeper, HTC customers can access their apps, sites and private information quickly and at the same time, feel safe knowing their passwords, photos and private information are secure in their Keeper vault," said Keeper Security CEO and Co-Founder, Darren Guccione. "HTC is one of the world's leading mobile brands. We are proud to partner with them on their mobile security initiatives."
