  1. I'm not familiar with Reflect, but if you don't want to use any sort of cloud synching, you can use local WiFi sync, though that will require having another desktop instance of Enpass running in your local network. https://www.enpass.io/wifi-sync/ Alternately, you could set up a NAS and use that with WebDAV to serve as the central sync point.
  2. That’s not an Enpass-specific issue. That doesn’t work on the Mac with any third-party password manager. There’s no API at this point to add other managers to login prompts outside the browser (that I’ve been able to find). Developers can only support iCloud Keychain. Even the iCloud Keychain option was only recently added, in Monterey.
  3. So FaceID doesn’t work at all on your iPad or it just doesn’t work in Enpass? If it doesn’t work at all, have you tried setting up FaceID again from the settings app?
  4. Hi @Bustr, It might be worth re-reading your initial post, because you did not, at any point, say you were referring to logging into Enpass itself, just that you wanted to be able to view passwords as you typed them in. Hence my question. Pro tip: Try not to alienate people trying to help you. It will make it harder for you to get help in the future. Cheers!
  5. Actually, iCloud isn't ruled out. I use my iCloud vaults just fine on Windows. Dropbox is another option that works on a wide variety of platforms.
  6. Right now, with iOS 15, an extension isn't likely to fix this issue. It didn't with 1Password and their native extension. However, there are a lot of good reasons to move to a native iOS extension and perhaps a future version of iOS will allow for third party integrations like this.
  7. If your issue is that you feel you can’t get the V7 download, you can still access V7 from the “Using an older computer” section. For example, here: https://1password.com/downloads/windows/ or from here: https://app-updates.agilebits.com
  8. I think this is an iOS thing and not an Enpass thing. No password manager I have ever used on iOS has ever offered to save a new login from within other applications or Safari. iOS simple does not pass the needed details onto a password manager like it does on the desktop. The only way around it that I recall from 1Password was to use the browser (web) view from within 1Password to save a login, but as I recall, even this was hit-or-miss and it was awkward to use in practice. Perhaps a future major release of iOS will allow for third party password managers to receive login details like on the desktop, but who knows.
  9. You mean being able to see the password as you type it in to a new entry (like a login) within Enpass? You can view what you are typing or have typed already. Just click on the eye icon in any private field (like password) to see everything without obfuscation.
  10. If you could set up or access third party sync services anywhere you happen to use the portable version on, then probably.
  11. https://www.enpass.io/release-notes/android/ The Android version is on exactly the same major version (6.7) as every other platform, so the answer is clearly no.
  12. The two are currently capable of reading the same vault files, but it would be up to you to figure out how to sync them. It really depends on what you are capable of doing on any remote machine you’re using the portable version on. Can you mount or access a remote storage location on these other computers? Do you even have Internet access?
  13. Honestly, that plus addressing thing doesn’t stop any but the absolute dumbest spammers. They know anything with a + in the address is just a filtering method and usually just email the source account without the + content. It will only stop legitimate mail sources (which one could do by asking to be removed from their mailing list anyway). Plus addressing is meant to make it easier for the email address owner to sort messages as they come in. If you want to actually stop spammers, you need an address that can’t be easily linked back to the source (real) email account. This means setting up a forwarder of some kind. iCloud offers exactly this on-the-spot during sign up (and it even lets you keep notes about each address you set up to remind you in the future what it is used for). I have my own domains, and I set up the forwarders on-the-spot. This works well, but isn’t as convenient.
  14. https://www.enpass.io/downloads/ scroll down to the Windows Website version. Click. Download. Profit.
  15. Go into Privacy and Security and add Enpass Portable to Full Disk Access. That is what I had to do to get it to work. macOS restricts apps from reading/writing stuff to your computer from downloads and other temporary areas.
  16. It’s also worth pointing out that if you use Safari, a drop down will appear on the iCloud login page. It will offer to log you in as the current macOS icloud user. You need to cancel that and log in manually and check the always remember box for it to work.
  17. How is the USB stick formatted? FAT32/ExFAT, NTFS, HFS+, APFS? (Use Get Info while tge usb stick is the primary focus in the Finderto check.) Are you able to write files to the USB stick on your Mac?
  18. The first sync especially takes a while, even after it looks like it is done. How long did you wait and how many entries do you have in the vault? More than 1,000?
  19. It would work if she were logged into your iCloud account on her iPhone, but her iPhone logged into her iCloud account will never see your sandboxed vault unless you put a copy somewhere her account can see it. If none of the other methods I suggested worked, try setting up a free Dropbox account and use the same account for both your wife and yourself and set up Dropbox to sync your Enpass vault(s) instead of iCloud.
  20. Well, I looked in the manual for the official word on this and while they do encourage you to use cloud sync to share a vault, you can only officially sync one vault per cloud account, so it means you'd need more than one to sync two. Not sure how true that is because I was able to create another vault in my account with a different name also synced with iCloud and it seemed to work, but as yesterday, perhaps I'm missing something. In any case, you can open your iCloud Drive in the Finder and press Command-Shift-. (period). This will show hidden files. Press that key combo again in the Finder to hide them again. However, I didn't need to use that to access my Enpass vaults. They are visible in your iCloud Drive in the Documents -> Enpass folder. If you share that folder with your wife and it is placed in her iCloud account in the same location, I'd bet her Enpass would find it. Make sure she has read-write access to the shared Enpass folder. Oh, and make sure you make a backup of everything before trying to share it, just to be safe.
  21. That’s not Enpass doing that. It is your Mac. Either you tried to open it in Word at some point and the Mac associated the file type with Word or Word is your default text editor. However, this is easy to fix. 1. In the Finder, select one of these backups and choose Get Info (Command-I or select it from the Finder File menu or right click on the file and select it there). 2. Find the Open With section of that window and click on the small triangle to show the content if it isn’t shown already. 3. Under the drop-down you find there select “Other” at the bottom of the list. 4. In the file selection window select “All Applications” from the Enable drop-down. 5. Select Enpass and then click Add. 6. Back in the Get info window, click the Change All.. button and Confirm. This will change all backups to be associated with Enpass.
  22. I haven’t tried this, but I think this could work. It is possible to share a folder between two iCloud accounts. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT210910 Set up sharing on the Enpass folder in iCloud and invite your wife only using her iCloud email/login address. Tell Enpass to restore from her iCloud account. If it works, great. If not, plan B would be for her to use WiFi syncing and have you run the WiFi server on a machine with your vault on it. She’d get your data via WiFi every time she’s on your home network. Another possibility might be to use local folder sync. Make sure both your wife and you have a folder you can both access An old school method is for you to periodically backup your vault and have her restore from your backup periodically. I’m pretty tired tonight, so I’m sure I’m missing something, but hopefully this helps.
  23. I’m not sure they can. I’ve used quite a few password managers over the years and third party in-line password integrations like Enpass, 1Password, Dashlane, etc. offer have always appeared below the browser or system-native password/form-filling drop-downs. Generally if you are going to use this sort of feature it is best to pick and activate only one to be active. Either choose Enpass or choose your browser’s functionality. Of course Enpass still works as it always has with this feature turned off, it’s just not quite as convenient.
  24. Hi, This is an old thread, so pardon me if you’ve tried these things recently… 1. 6.7.2 is not the latest version of Enpass for Mac. Try upgrading to 6.7.4. 2. Remove iCloud syncing from your vault, remove the copy in iCloud if needed. Then set up syncing to iCloud again. 3. When asked to authenticate, let Safari launch. You will be asked via a special drop-down sheet if you want to log in with the currently active iCloud account. Make sure you don’t log in that way. Refusing will present the standard login screen for your iCloud account. Make sure you check the box to remember this login and then log into the appropriate iCloud account. 4. Once authenticated and passed back to Enpass, you should remain logged in unless your iCloud password is changed or you invalidate logged in sessions or you have some process that cleans up files related to Enpass in the background or you are logged into a guest account.
  25. Peter, try this if you’ve given up on accessing the original vault: Unlink your old vault from iCloud or where ever you sync it and move the vault from iCloud (or whatever) Create a new vault, restore the backup to that new vault, set up iCloud synching (or something similar), then delete Enpass from your phone. Reinstall it, register it with your email account and then restore the new vault from where ever you sync it. Unfortunately, on iOS at least, you cannot sync a new vault without knowing the password to the existing one. That’s why you need to remove and reinstall the app so you can get in.
