Keeper Security CTO statement regarding the “Collection #1 Database”

“Collection #1” Database

There has been a lot of press recently surrounding the discovery of a large dataset of breached password information called “Collection #1”.

Please note that the data contained in this Collection #1 was already available in Keeper BreachWatch as part of a series of previously disclosed datasets. This is not a new breach, but instead was a “mega combo list” composed of data from previous breaches that are already in our system.

Here’s an article from Krebs on Security regarding this particular set of data:

Existing BreachWatch customers can simply log into Keeper on iOS, Android, Web Vault or Desktop App to become notified of any affected records.
