    I have used Enpass for 5 years and open it regularly. I've never changed my Master Password. Overnight it stopped working. I'm on a Mac laptop using OS Monterey 12.31

    I have read that this has happened to others. Advice appreciated

    A few months ago I purchased and began using Enpass. I have been using Enpass virtually everyday since. I have been entering my Master Password each time I need to use Enpass and never had an issue. This weekend that changed. I always get the "Incorrect Master Password" and can no longer access Enpass. I know the password very well I've been typing it in without failure over the past months. I am not in the habit of typing it in wrongly but just in case I also tried to copy and paste it in, this made no difference. I also installed the new release of Enpass in hope but sadly that made no difference too.

    Right now I'm extremely worried that this is a catastrophic bug and everything is lost. 

    MacOS: 11.6.5


    First make sure its not a problem from your side. Here are something you can try:-

    1. Restart Enpass
    2. restart your computer
    3. make sure caps lock is not ON
    4. make sure keyboard is set to the language of password (if password in english, keyboard input has to be in english if you are bilingual)
    5. On your device you will find backups of Enpass vault, download enpass on your phone or other computer and try to unlock that vault using your password from there.


    As a protective measurement, I have opted to use 2 password managers just in case one fails me as EnPass has failed you. I am currently using Bitwarden as backup and often export from Enpass to Bitwarden to keep passwords up to date. Bitwarden is free.

  2. I want to save a copy of my vault for just in case scenario to be safe. I am wondering if the back up is encrypted and safe to be stored in a cloud storage online?

    I made export but export says its not encrypted. I chose backup from file menu and it showed it can be backed up to a file called .enpassfilevault or something similar. If it matters I am storing it on Filen.io . Is this encrypted or what?


    I know you can sync the vault from multiple cloud services, but I think it will be good feature if you can have a backup option with drop menu to a cloud storage of your choice. So if you go to backup it has a drop down menu to your accounts from different cloud services, or you can set it up to backup to a specific cloud service at a set of intervals. Currently it does so but on a single location of your choice, which is local drive for me.




    My other question is that the backup file does not seem to be opened by Enpass, will it only open if I chose to import it from the file menu or restore it from the backup preferences? how does this work?

  3. I opened Enpass assistant and went over to and did cmd+c on my user name and password but it does not look like its copying them.  This is completely deal breaker for me as I often copy fields. I know about the cmd+shift+U shortcut, its longer and you need two hands to do it, also there are other fields I would like to copy that does not have a dedicated shortcut.

    The whole assistant app is clunky and needs some fixing:-

    1) I didn't find the docking shortcut cmd+shift+D in the shortcuts page and had to hunt for it myself. The command cmd+D should be used for docking and command+SHIFT+D should be using for duplicates since you are a lot more likely to dock than create a duplicate item, so the easier cmd+d should be for docking and command+SHIFT+D should be for duplicates.

    2)to edit an entry you click cmd+E but that only opens Enpass app where it does not even open the item you clicked the shortcut on, you have to search for the item again in the app and then you have to hit cmd+E AGAIN to start editing. The editing should be done in the assistant app

    3) It makes no sense that cmd+E opens the app, cmd+E should be to edit the item and cmd+O should be to open the app (unless cmd+O is taken for something else). Funny when you use cmd+E again in the app it edits an item, this is clearly inconsistency.

    4) I am facing weird effects, like if I open the Assistant and hit enter on an item, it will take me to the website but not autofill it which is not the point of this action, it supposed to go there and autofill the logins (safari default browser)

    5) The Enpass app/assistant has invisible scroll bars which is not good because it does not make you understand there is extra content below. This caused me a trouble when I was choosing a field type from the drop down menu and was missing the "Text" type and I thought it was a bug or limitation. Only through accident did I learn that the drop-down menu was scrollable and I had to scroll UP with the mouse to find the TEXT type field. All scroll bars should be visible and not cause confusion for the user!

    so I have encase on my iPad and my iPhone and my Mac desktop all are connected to the cloud..my question is about the key chain on my Mac thats also connected to the cloud .I have several passwords in the keychain ,do I have to go through and copy them all ? seems tedious..do I turn keychain off and start from scratch with enpass?

    I also have several websites that have just a click here to log in to this account / example my gmail .


    how do I begin the process of using this ?



    maybe this could help: 


  5. I was successful with Bitwarden using this and failed with Enpass. If there is a form with custom fields, with Bitwarden you can right click and choose "Copy Custom Field Name" then add it to the login item. Now it autofills custom forms. Bitwarden is open source so maybe you should see how they do it and add it to Enpass.

    Is there something similar in Enpass?


    I also found Bitwarden to be smarter in the autofiling department with different URLs so maybe a copy the method from their book

  6. I find this annoying. I know what page I am on, I know how to create a separate login form for another website, if I want to autofill using a different site credentials then let me, no I do not want to change the current website address in my login credentials, and I do not need you task me every single time. 

    although I am logging in at https://www.onenote.com/hrd?wdorigin=ondcauth2&wdorigin=poc it says I am trying to fill https://odc.officeapps.live.com .


    This is the OneNote login page. I am using my microsoft account to login. I chose Autofill only. It opens a new tab and logs me into microsoft then offers to save a new login!?! which is the same credentials I used to login in the first place (See image #2)Then it auto takes me to my Microsoft Account page (see image #3). This is not what I was trying to do, I was trying to login into OneNote. OneNote.com .

    Hi @flyingbirds,

    Thank you for the questions, let me quickly give a view over this.

    In order to resolve this Open Enpass--> Go to "Settings"--> Click on "Browser"--> Skip these domains. Write the domain names in the text-box and Enpass will never ask you to save these domains ever. The domain names can be added/deleted from the box manually.

    You can select that item under the Audit section Right click--> Exclude from Audit. Refer to the attached screenshot.


    According to what I have understood all the logins that include 2FA should be categorized together. If this is the case, we would like to inform you that there is a 2FA folder under the Audit section.

    Upon hovering the mouse over the icons, the names are displayed correctly. Would recommend you to update the Enpass app to its latest version if not updated.



    1-I think the the exclude new domains option should not be burried in the settings like when it suggest to store the password you should get a prompt saying "Don't Ask again for this site". that would be more intuitive.

    2-The exclude option works but I think it excludes it from all audit including breach/compromised (whats the difference?) . Maybe have something more like "exclude from weak passwords" . The other thing is that the password strength in Enpass needs correcting. I have a 20 or so character password mixed with numbers and it still classify it as weak and average.

    3- yeah the 2FA warning are categorized together with the blue notice on top but if you click "DON'T SAVE" it goes out of that folder. I meant I want a folder that categroise all logins WITH THE OPTION for 2FA say in the future I may want to turn it on.

    4-The mouse hoover is not working for me either on assistance on the extension on FireFox. Firefox 98.0.1 , MacOS 11.6.5 Enpass 6.7.4 (938) . Not working in Safari 15.4 extension either. I do not know how to update Enpass I clicked Enpass -> About Enpass , there is no update button only Email us and Open Source Licenses.

  8. this is annoying since the top item is usually the first choice people want to click. the option to create a new item should be either at the bottom or have a plus sigh at the top near the Wifi icon or something, just not the first option because people want their logins to be the first options not in the middle.

    Hi @flyingbirds,

    I understand your concern about saving passwords for items that have already been saved. Despite this, Enpass only does this when it finds something new in the filled details or in the URL. Therefore, it is advisable to verify whether anything has been changed. 


    the only thing I notice is that the main discussion page url is:-


    and the stored on in Enpass is:


    am not sure which one is correct?! plus if the websites do not match shouldn't it not suggest the password in the first place since I have the "match hostname" option on in the settings? I do not think Enpass should be so finicky and delicate like this.

  10. Something weird going on where I used Enpass to login into Enpass forums but then it suggested if I wanted to save the password!?


    Browser Firefox , Enpass latest , plugins:-

    I dont care about cookies

    ublock origin

    Auto tab discard

    firefox containers (not used for Enpass)

    Strict Privacy Protection setting on firefox

    CookieBlock ( https://karelkubicek.github.io/post/cookieblock)


    none should interfere with this?!


  11. *Is there a way for Enpass to NOT suggest saving the password for this site? There is a website that I do not wish to save its password and everytime Enpass asks if I want to save this new password


    *Weak Passwords and 2FA warnings are nice but there must be a way to disable them . I know the password is weak, I want it to be weak, no need to inform me. I found a way for 2FA by choosing do not save 2FA but no way for taking out the weak passwords


    also I think there should be a folder or a way to show all logins that has 2FA option categorized in one area/folder

  12. The icon has to be either at the dock OR the menu bar is annoying and taking unnecessary space , please make option to clear dock AND menu bar. I can call Enpass by using the shortcut cmd+alt+\ or launch enpass.

    I still prefer 1pw method of quit 1pw to close the app window and keep the assistant running or quit 1pw completely which quits everything

  13. if you unlock it it works , its a good feature the problem is that enpass insists to lock itself after a short time. Enpass developers should make better options like lock after restart, shutdown, or on quit, not after 5 min.


    I set mine to a max of 9999 min, I do not think it honors it but mine locks after few days which makes it more bearable

  14. 1. When Launching the assistant (cmd+shift+\) I click cmd+E to edit an entry but it only launches EnPass.

    2. What is the Anchor short cut? and where can I find a list of EnPass shortcuts?

    3. I do not understand the "Match URL hostname" option. For example, Enpass was unable to fill my protonmail account because the website field says "protonmail.com" meanwhile the login URL was "accounts.protonmail.com/login" . Shouldn't "protonmail.com " be enough for enpass to figure it out? 1PW only had to know the domain name.


    Latest Enpass version and MacOS Big Sur 11.6.4 and FF latest.

  15. While its clear that you can rearrange fields with the burger icon drag-and-drop , its not clear that you can actually delete fields. At first I thought this was not possible until I clicked on the field name and found a mini menu that makes you able to delete that specific field.

    I would like to share that this issue of Enpass where it is suggesting credit cards for phone numbers in the microsoft phone verification page is reproduced on our end and our team is working on its fix.

    Also for boardgamearena.com as per the attached screenshot it seems that you are trying to create an account for this particular website. If this is the case then Enpass will display identity items--> Please confirm the same.

    Github Issue:  On this page, Enpass will show identity items since it is a signup page. 

    eBay issue:   Please share the URL of the page where you are experiencing this issue.  



    1-Yes boardgameareana.com I am signing up but why is it putting my real identity for the signup for a website? I am not going to use my real name and address for a website that is asking for: username , password, and email. Plus I do not use the same email for everything.

    2-For ebay I can not reproduce that URL, its their 2FA site after you log in they show you this page to write your phone number or email to send you 2FA code.

    3-For Github , while its a signup page I am getting a suggestion of identities in a field that is asking for a "y" or "n" as input as seen in the screenshot. Obviously identity is incorrect.
