    Hey @downloaderfan

    Thanks for writing to us.

    Sorry to say that it is not possible to scan multiple databases. Your problem can be solved using the WiFi sync feature, which will be available in the very near future.

    Thanks for the reply, Garima.

    I looked up what WiFi Sync was in Enpass and found threads some of which date back 5 years ago requesting for WiFi sync and it hasn't been implemented yet. So due to this I'm not hoping that this feature, which will solve my problem, will be released in the near future. PFB references.






  2. Hi,

    I use Enpass store version on my Windows 10 laptop & the Enpass app on Android. In order to sync database between both my devices, since I don't trust the cloud I opted to use folder sync method along with Syncthing. In Syncthing, I can choose a specific folder on my android phone & windows laptop and Syncthing will keep the contents of the folder in sync using local WiFi i.e. the router. So, in order for the sync to work, both my laptop & my phone must be connected to the router at the same time. It's just like how the Google Drive desktop app can keep 2 folders in different computers in sync, but this occurs through local WiFi & not the global internet.

    Now coming to my problem, there frequently comes a scenario where if I make a change on Enpass in Windows 10 which is offline and then I make another change on Enpass in Android which is also offline, then when I connect both devices to the internet, a collision occurs & 2 files are generated on both my devices. But it seems Enpass reads only 1 of them to sync, which is the file named vault.enpassdbsync. Is there a way I can setup Enpass such that in such scenarios, it would scan both databases on a line level & identify changes in both? This doesn't seem to be happening when using folder sync method.

    Hi downloaderfan,

    Is the v6.4.268.0 version you mentioned for Enpass traditional?

    If so, will just doing an update to my Enpass traditional v6.0.0 (230) get me that version?  I've been reluctant to do updates since the one I did screwed up the interface with blurry and mis-aligned text, which forced me to go back to v6.0.0 (230) to get back to normal.


    It's the Windows Store version. I'm not sure about the traditional version.

    They removed the feature in v6. In my opinion, it's a huge setback and a huge SECURITY issue. I was horrified when I went to my system tray to open Enpass and I was already logged in!

    I mean, you can't remove such a key feature just like that, especially when people have had this setting configured for ages and are used to the application locking itself after being inactive for X amount of time. Many people might not even find out about this for some time, leaving their account data potentially exposed to anyone else who -even by chance- opens the application.

    Enpass Team, please do right by your users and fix this security issue.

    Just updated today to v6.4.268.0. Seems that they have added back this feature.

    So what you want is to auto lock when Enpass has been idle for less than one (1) minute?

    Yes, only when enpass is idle for less than 1 minute, not the system. Because I use my system very frequently & enpass will stay unlocked for a longer period unnecessarily now since they removed this feature. Also, this was one of the main reasons why I choose Enpass over other password managers 2 years ago.

    Change "System Inactive for..." from 1 to let´s say 100.

    When i do that Enpass do not shut down after 1 minute.

    Not sure if you are trolling mate.

    Never did I ask for "How to prevent enpass shut down after 1 minute" & that's far from anything relevant to this post. I've written & provided screenshots in detail & there is nothing more I can do if ppl still fail to understand the issue. :(

  7. Just upgraded to Enpass 6.0 on Windows 10, traditional Win32 version. Immediately after update, I noticed that auto-lock when enpass is idle feature has been removed. Now only auto lock when system idle for 1 minute exists which unnecessarily causes my enpass vault to be unlocked for a longer period & I'm not comfortable with that. For whatever reasons, they decided to keep this feature on the Android version. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Hi @downloaderfan

    Thanks a lot for taking time to write in and sharing your valuable thoughts. Both of your suggestions for 'never allowing to view a password without any security and Enpass locks immediately after logging in to a website' have been noted down.


    Just to clarify, it is just one suggestion. Enpass desktop can lock itself whenever I close the window, so it works just as I expected. But in chrome, after I enter the master password and login to a website, enpass remains unlocked for 1 minute, which means all my passwords can be viewed without any security for one minute. If enpass auto locks itself right after logging into the website, the issue of viewing passwords without any security would also be fixed. 

  9. Right now, enpass as it is, if I enter the master password using its hotkey to login to a website, the minimum amount of time before it auto locks is 1 minute. For the rest of my life, in that 1 minute, I need to make sure I don't give access of my laptop to anyone else, otherwise he will be able to view all my passwords. Considering how humans by nature err all the time, there is no way I can assure myself of perfect safety, I'm trying to switch from lastpass to enpass and this is the only problem I see with the enpass security model. Lastpass always asked me to enter my master password to view any password and never allowed viewing passwords without any security, even if for a short time. So, I would like to request a feature where enpass locks immediately(option must be provided) after logging in to a website. I hope this is implemented since it's related to security of the system itself. Thank you.
