    Ah, I think I understand.

    Are you syncing the vault to Google Drive via the builtin Enpass capability to sync to Google Drive?

    I don't believe this is an Enpass issue. Google Drive makes connected app data hidden, https://developers.google.com/drive/api/v3/appdata , "This folder is only accessible by your application and its contents are hidden from the user and from other Drive apps", 

    I just setup a test vault and yeah nothing. So this would not likely work with Google Drive the way you'd like to share it, but its Google that has this behavior not Enpass.

    That being said, the vault can be placed on Google Drive manually by either uploading a backup from Enpass, or changing the default Enpass vault location to a folder that's synced on your computer with Google Drive, those then could be shared via regular sharing methods.

    So far, yes, Enpass capability.

    As to whether this is an Enpass issue, I hear that it's arguable.  However, the functionality that I'm missing is missing in Enpass.  They could have worked with Google, or used a plan file in their internal capability.  Or... (easiest yet)... documented this workflow.

    I hear you on moving a backup.  That'll probably give me what I want.  Thank you.

    What you could consider is a dummy Gmail account, it will come with 15Gb storage (that should be enough for even the biggest vaults). .... I agree it's not ideal but I guess it is more a shortcoming of Google et al than of Enpass...

    I don't agree that it's a failing of Google.  Google offers me the ability to share individual files, but apparently I can't share my vault that way.  And Enpass doesn't offer me a way to "dial in" the vault, even if I could share it.

    I did create a dummy account but that's unsatisfactory for several reasons.  The biggest one is that I'm already paying Google monthly for support.  I don't really want to add another account to my support bill just for this alone.  But at the same time, I don't really want to use an unsupported account for passwords.

    This is old tech.  Enpass is usually right on top of most things.  I'm surprised there isn't a well documented story for this use case.

    You should be able to share the file and send your fiancee a link as in any other file share, unless I misunderstand the scenario.

    That's what I was hoping for.  But I don't see the file in my Drive to share it.  I presume that it's hidden somehow.

    And the Enpass interface only asks for service and then authenticates against the service.  There's no "file" or "location" specification that I see.

    • You’ll have to share the login details of the cloud account with each user you want to share the vault with.


    That's the problem.
    Google Drive and several others offer a means of sharing data without sharing an account.  I'm astonished to hear that those aren't available here.  Is it really true that none of those mechanisms are available?

    However, I would like to inform you that the folder that will try to share with your known person will be encrypted by your master password and they won't be able to access it.

    That's the reverse problem. 

    Yes, I understand that the vault won't be usable without the vault password.  But I also don't want to be sharing everything else in my Google drive.  The Google approach to that is to keep my personal password secret and to invite access on a file-by-file, (or directory-by-directory), basis.

    I pay them for support on a monthly basis and I don't relish the idea of either paying extra for a separate account solely for the purpose of creating a bad data sharing config nor of using a free account when I'm already paying.

  6. What's a good service for sharing vaults these days?  What are people happy using?

    I want something that can be accessed from a broad variety of machines, so I think that rules out iCloud.  And I'd really rather NOT share a password.  So I'd like something akin to Google Drive where I can individually share access to the file with another user.

    What's a good way to do that with Enpass today?

  7. I want to share a vault with my fiancée and I was thinking that Google Drive would be a good option.  I already pay them for email & drive service.  But I'm not finding the vault under the drive interface so I don't know how to invite her to access it.

    How do I invite someone to access my enpass vault?
