  1. I was also looking for a way to delete password history. In my case, I only wanted to do so for a single Enpass item. As a workaround, I edited the item, added a second password field, copied/pasted the current password from the original password field to the new/second password field, then deleted the original password field and saved the item. Rename/reorder fields as desired, of course.

    Posting in case someone finds this helpful.

  2. Very odd. I unsuccessfully tried to reproduce with Enpass 6.2.0 (537) on a Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS (64-bit) install. Take a backup in Enpass, then maybe try this at a terminal?:

    $ pkill -i enpass
    $ sudo apt-get purge enpass
    $ sudo apt-get install enpass

    That would effectively reinstall Enpass.

  3. In Finder, go to Applications. Enpass should appear twice. If you first downloaded/installed the package from the Enpass website and later installed Enpass from the App Store, trash the Enpass application with the oldest Date Modified timestamp. As a test on a Mac where Enpass wasn't already installed, I downloaded the package from the Enpass website and installed, then installed Enpass from the App Store. This is how it appeared in Finder.


    Notice how the second instance is nested in a directory/folder. Apparently this was necessary because of the previous installation of the downloaded package. After trashing the older (10:54) application and emptying Trash, the newer/nested application from the App Store still worked fine. If something goes wrong, trash all instances of Enpass in Applications and simply reinstall from the App Store. I recommend first backing up to prevent possible data loss. You should regularly backup anyway. If this response helps you, please like it. See the heart button below and to the right. Thank you!

    I'm installing from Microsoft Store...There's no "Enpass 5 data folder"; there's only "Backup File".

    Ah. It wasn't clear from the OP's post or your first post that you're installing from the Store. Try downloading/installing the traditional Win32 edition; link is at the bottom of the downloads page. The traditional Win32 edition has a restore from "Enpass 5 Data Folder" option during first run. If you don't see the first run "I am a New User" and restore options, and you're prompted for a master password, you'll need to quit Enpass, move aside (rename) your Enpass data folder and try again. After you import your Enpass 5 data, you can take a backup, then restore the backup in the Store edition of Enpass. Or you could configure cloud sync in the traditional Win32 edition, sync up, then do the same in the Store edition to sync back down.

  5. It sounds like you've proceeded past/through "first run" of Enpass 6, where you're prompted to set up as a new user, or restore from cloud or this PC (local). Try*:

    1. Quit Enpass.
    2. Move aside (rename) any .Enpass or Enpass folders in your Documents folder.
    3. Open Enpass. You should see "first run" options to create a new user/database or restore. Scroll down (if needed) and select the option for Enpass 5 Data Folder under From this PC. Browse to and select the folder containing your Enpass v5 walletx.db.
    4. Click to import.

    *Works for me; YMMV.

    ...I'm wondering if there's a bug in the cloud backup function (DropBox) and passwords are getting mixed up out of band...

    I assume you're referring to the cloud sync feature, for syncing your Enpass data across multiple devices (e.g. phone, tablet, laptop)? I use this feature (with Dropbox) to sync across no fewer than 5 devices. I have about 750 entries with a variety of password lengths (rarely more than 64 characters) and complexity and use Enpass daily.

    The current version of Enpass seems to support the extended ASCII character set including in password fields, though the generator apparently doesn't include these characters even optionally. You would need to copy and paste such characters into an Enpass password field. I mention this because I would expect extended set characters to be potentially more troublesome.

    If there were an Enpass (or Dropbox) bug causing corrupted passwords, I think there would be many other similar reports. An interesting exercise might be to show/echo the password you paste/enter where you encounter this trouble...

    I am a little bit shocked because the explanation isn’t right.

    From the linked text/explanation:


    The Enpass app anonymously sends a POST query to our server over HTTPS protocol with all the domains in saved URLs. It does not contain any of your personal information. All the URLs in your Enpass items are stripped out to the domain part only...

    The only identifiable information that reaches our server is your IP address, and our server does not log or cache it anywhere to identify you, so we do not know which websites a particular user has saved in Enpass. We cannot strip that out from the request since it is part of the HTTPS protocol.

    I find the explanation reasonable and the privacy/security-first design sufficient. Insinuating that if Enpass sends an anonymous POST query of an entry domain (for the purpose of requesting an associated favicon) then it naturally follows that Enpass might send entry credential info...is ludicrous. O.o

  8. And it wouldn't hurt to first

    • Make a copy of sync_default.walletx
    • Install Enpass desktop on Windows, Linux, or macOS

    Use the desktop application backup feature to take a backup.

    Then you can migrate to your Android phone with full confidence that you can restore if something goes south during migration*.


    *I once entered 10 puns in a humor contest, hoping one would win. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.

  9. Hmmm... It sounds like you are attempting to use Google Backup and Sync or Google Drive File Stream to sync Enpass? Enpass has integrated facilities for syncing with Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. When using Enpass' integrated syncing with Google Drive, no additional folders/files appear in your Google Drive.


    Attempting to sync Enpass data outside of the application (e.g. using Backup and Sync directly), will almost certainly not work as desired.


  10. .Enpass should be in your profile directory, not directly in Users (C:\Users\.Enpass). If your Windows username is minusSeven, you should find .Enpass at C:\Users\minusSeven\.Enpass, assuming default drive letter assignment. To show hidden files in File Explorer, click the View "ribbon" and click Options. This will open a Folder Options dialog. On the View tab, make sure the option is checked to Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and click OK to close the dialog box (this will also apply any changes). Open your user profile directory. You should see a .Enpass directory. I don't think showing hidden files and folders is technically required to see this directory in a Windows environment. On Linux/Unix, MacOS, files and folders that are named beginning with a period are hidden by default. Windows uses a file/directory attribute/property to determine "hiddenness".

  11. I think it's as simple as trashing Enpass from Applications and trashing .Enpass in your user profile directory (~/.Enpass), which is hidden by default.

    Use Terminal for the following.

    To list everything in your profile directory, including hidden files and directories:

    ls -a ~

    To (recursively/forcefully) remove .Enpass:

    rm -rf ~/.Enpass

    This will permanently delete .Enpass; you won't be able to restore from Trash. Use rm -rf cautiously.

  12. I have been using Enpass for several years and never encountered what you describe. If/when you use the password generator while editing an entry, make sure you actually fill/update the entry password field if and only if you are changing an account password. Also make sure you don't have duplicate entries with different passwords. If you generate or change a password outside of Enpass, be sure to always immediately update any related Enpass entry. When retrieving a password from Enpass, make sure you copy the correct/password field, not a username or other field.

    Beyond that, I would suspect other software possibly interfering with Enpass.

  13. Unfortunately, you can't. Enpass can export to csv, json, and txt formats. Csv (comma-separated values) is a common format that many password managers support for importing. Bitdefender Password Manager only supports importing its own (.db) format. .db is a common extension used by various applications, but doesn't imply a specific format standard. If you inspect a Bitdefender Password Manager .db file, you might get lucky and discover a simple way to migrate an exported csv to that db format. But the .db file is likely to be in a binary format with no apparent (human readable) structure.

    Maybe you'd be further ahead keeping work entries in Bitdefender Password Manager and personal entries in Enpass?

  14. I would try this:

    1. Close/quit Enpass. Don't just close the application window. Make sure Enpass is no longer running. You shouldn't see the Enpass application/lock icon in the notification area.
    2. You should have a folder, C:\Users\<UserName>\.Enpass. Backup this folder (e.g. zip archive or copy to other location) and delete the original. This folder may be hidden by default. If so, you can set File Explorer Folder Options to show hidden folders and files.
    3. Launch Enpass. It should display a "first run" wizard to configure Enpass. Configure it for Dropbox sync, and it should sync down from Dropbox. If Enpass still didn't launch as expected, try uninstalling Enpass again and delete the .Enpass directory from your profile directory (you should already have a backup from step 2), then reinstall Enpass and try again.
  15. Hi Roland,

    If you paid for Enpass, number of entries is unlimited. Free Enpass for mobile has a limit of 20 entries. Are you using Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, OneDrive, or something else, to sync your Enpass database between devices? If so, maybe you reached the quota (max storage capacity) of the service you are using? Or perhaps your device (mobile/computer) has no free storage space?

    For what it's worth, I have nearly 750 entries in my Enpass database, and have encountered no storage quota related messages.

    ...how do I get the older version which works?

    On 64-bit Linux Mint 19.2 "Tina" (Cinnamon), I followed the Enpass instructions for adding an apt source and installing Enpass (this installed version After experiencing same/similar problems as the topic starter, I did this at a terminal (Bash shell) to downgrade to an older version (, specifically)*:

    Quit/kill Enpass:

    $ pkill -i enpass


    Remove Enpass:

    $ sudo apt-get purge enpass


    Search for available Enpass packages:

    $ apt-cache madison enpass


    Install specific version of Enpass:

    $ sudo apt-get install enpass=


    To avoid upgrading Enpass during an apt-get update/upgrade:

    $ sudo apt-mark hold enpass


    If/when you no longer need to keep a specific version:

    $ sudo apt-mark unhold enpass

    *Worked for me; YMMV.

    Do you work for Enpass xD?

    Nope. I'm a satisfied user. I also understand that it takes effort and resources to deliver, improve, secure and support software/services.

    They should have just named it a differently like Enpass 2.

    Uhh...they named it Enpass 6 ;-)

    Some responses here sound very entitled and tantrum-like. If you can't stomach a very reasonable charge for major re-write upgrades, you might instead consider some other well-known subscription password management services. That way you'll know exactly what you pay for the year/month, assuming the subscription costs don't change, of course. You might also consider one of several free password managers. When you're ready to come running back, Enpass will still be here. :-)
