    Optional is fine by me.. 

    That said, I don't agree with some of your logic. If you are concerned about security, you would not likely enable PIN which is much easier to 'guess attack' from the console than the more complex master password. If you enable PIN, you aren't really concerned as about security of the console of your device, so my suggestion is an extension of that, and only applied to PIN, not entering master password.

    Sure if it is like that than i agree but still optional would be a solution.

    Hi @Anthony 

    Thanks for your suggestion.I have noted down your suggestion and we'll take it into consideration.

    Cheers.

    I think that one should not be for everyone but only as an option to change in the settings because in my opinion it is an extra layer of security when someone hits random keys or thinks that it might know the master pass or pin and it cannot enter inside the app without hitting enter by making it harder fpr him to guess, and an automatic login would prove the one who tries to enter a guessed pss or pin right with only a few tries rather than leaving him in doubt. 

    Thanks, and would like for you guys to take my opinion into consideration. 

  3. Hey guys, i am using enpass for a long time, even bought it because it was that good, and i would love to buy it for my family too just to support you guys. But the thing is that now i am getting worried, it has been a long time since this thread opened and since you said that you will take the security audit, because to me it seems like you are stalling it. With security problems that multiple password managers are having, i would like to see that audit done ASAP or sadly i might switch platform, a thing i would not like to do but feel like doing if necessary. You are keeping a lot of customers away only for the audit.

    Thanks.

    Hi @Enes Stastoli

    Thanks for writing in. All the answers related your queries are given in Italics:

    • Why does Enpass portable need to save my Enpass database in a certain location in the computer? 
      • Portable version saves Enpass database only at the location defined by you (which you choose every time while starting the Portable version) and it's up to you where you want to save the data. To keep your data always in USB drive, you need to point to the location on USB device and Enpass will then tell you unavailability of any data there, and will prompt you to create or restore existing data.  Now once you have created/restored the database inside the USB drive, you’ll need to point to that directory every time to access data, and in this process, your data will not be saved anywhere else. 
    • What happens to those files saved from Enpass portable if i remove my enpass portable usb?
      • If you chose to keep your database file on every desktop, then it will remain there in encrypted format. Otherwise you can create/restore your database on USB drive (at first start of Portable) and refer to that location every time on every PC you use.
    • Does Enpass portable always need to load my passwords from the cloud in new computers, because it is self understanding that in new and temporary computers i have no record of my password database. If so that is a huge problem because the password of my cloud account is saved only on enpass and i cannot remember it, thus making my access inside my passwords database impossible?
      • No, you can access it from the Enpass data folder in USB drive by pointing it to.
    • If i chose to save a backup file inside the USB flash drive in order for my password database to be accessible from Enpass portable, than how safe is it?
      • The safety of your database always depends on your Master Password as Enpass encrypts all your database with your Master Password. So if your master password is strong enough, you don't need to worry about your database's security.
    • Are any of the passwords even saved on the USB drive?
      • As I said above, it all depends on where you choose to save. Enpass saves all your database at the defined location, nowhere else. Further, all the encryption and decryption functions are done there.
    • I believe that Enpass needs to address a lot of questions like these, by improving its "Getting started guide for Enpass portable" and making it more user friendly, and also improving the UI of the "Welcome to Enpass portable" screen by making it more helpful and easier to understand and navigate.
      • Noted and will be updated soon.
    • Why don't i see an option to restore data from iCloud?
      • Currently, Enpass supports iCloud support only in Mac App store version. 

    Hope this helps!

     

    Thank you so much for your response. Loving enpass :D

  5. So i want to use enpass portable but i have a few questions. What i don't understand is this, Enpass portable is just an app whose executable files just lie in the usb flash drive in order for you not having to install it every time in every new computer and only to launch it directly from the usb? Why does Enpass portable need to save my Enpass database in a ceratin location in the computer? What happens to those files saved from Enpass portable if i remove my enpass portable usb? Does Enpass portable always need to load my passwords from the cloud in new computers, because it is self understanding that in new and temporary computers i have no record of my password database. If so that is a huge problem because the password of my cloud account is saved only on enpass and i cannot remember it, thus making my access inside my passwords database impossible? If i chose to save a backup file inside the USB flash drive in order for my password database to be accessible from Enpass portable, than how safe is it? Are any of the passwords even saved on the USB drive?  I believe that Enpass needs to address a lot of questions like these, by improving its "Getting started guide for Enpass portable" and making it more user friendly, and also improving the UI of the "Welcome to Enpass portable" screen by making it more helpful and easier to understand and navigate. And also why don't i see an option to restore data from iCloud? I would appreciate any response to this matter.
