  1. I've been having freezes too.  My Windows machine freezes when I'm in the browser, right-click, select Enpass to fill the password.  Then the main Enpass application freezes, but eventually unfreezes after several long minutes.  Another symptom is the browser sometimes freezes up too.  I haven't found anything in the Enpass logs to suggest anything useful.

    Windows 10
    Enpass 6.5.2 (725)
    FireFox 82.0.3

  2. I clicked "Checked for Updates", the app goes to the screen "Checking for updates", the icon spins...BUT...

    The application never stops spinning, and the check for updates never completes.  I've waited a day, and no success.

    It used to work.  I think it stopped working after the last update.

    Thank you.

  3. Backup Frequency

    I want to schedule daily/weekly/monthly backups.

    Or tell us when "auto backup" decides to backup.

    Backup Limit/Retention Policy

    I want to limit/retain the auto-backups either by time or number.

    For example:

    A)  Only keep X number of backups.

    B)  Do not keep backups older than X months.

    C)  Fancier policy:  Daily Backup + Weekly Backup + Monthly Backup + Quarterly Backup + Annual Backup.

    Thank you.

    At least on the Mac client, the OTP is automatically copied into the clipboard by enpass, so that after logging in, you simply have to Control-V the OTP.  It doesn't work like this on the Android client, which I would love to see.

    I didn't know about that feature...thanks.  Windows has the same feature.

    Here's the annoying part:  I have something saved to my clipboard that I don't want being erased!

    I much prefer to right click the TOTP text box on the web page, go to Enpass, and tell it to fill TOTP.  Or better yet, keyboard shortcut.


  5. Thank you....

    A few suggestions:

    1)  If you are going to use icons (show, copy), should also include icons for the other options (like delete).

    2)  Might want to consider verifying you really want to delete a shared key.

    3)  Option to rename the key.

    Thank you.

  6. I don't want to lose the popup window of the Enpass Chrome extension when I click on something that isn't the popup window.

    For example..

    I had an  Enpass extension for Chrome popup window appear when capturing a new login or update.  But I clicked away from the popup window, and the popup windows disappeared.  I then lost my login credentials, including the password I just generated.  Since the information wasn't captured by Enpass, I had to go through the extra trouble reset my password and start over.

    I've done this a few times when I've tried to click the main browser window to copy/paste information into the Enpass extension window.

    Instead of doing all these messes up steps why don't you make Chromium as your default browser and then enable sync.

    Great idea, but I'm running a portable version of Chromium.

    Here's what my Chromium browser settings show (I presume it declares itself as the default browser because it is a portable app without access to the registry):



  8. Problem:

    Setting up Sync is not working with Dropbox (maybe others too).


    • Enpass Windows Desktop v6.0.6 (323)
    • Enpass Extension
    • Chromium Web Browser 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit) (not default browser) (Enpass Extension installed).
    • Google Chrome (default browser) (Enpass Extension not installed).

    Repro Steps:

    When I setup Dropbox Sync via Enpass Desktop:

    • Enpass Desktop opens the default browser.
      • I don't use the operating system default browser with Enpass, therefore don't have the Enpass Extension installed on the default browser.
      • I use Chromium as my browser, which is not the operating system's default web browser.
    • Enpass Desktop sends an authentication link to the default browser to Dropbox.
    • Since I don't use the default browser, I copy and paste the authentication link to my default browser.
    • The browser that I use is Chromium, with the Enpass Extension installed.
    • When I log into Dropbox via authentication link and approve the authorization, Enpass doesn't recognize the authorization, and does nothing.

    Potential Reasons:

    • Chromium not fully supported. 
    • Chromium is not the default browser.  Enpass will open the default browser (which I don't use Enpass Extension) with the authentication link, I manually copy the authentication link, and paste the link.
    • There's some sort of communication between: Enpass Desktop <=> Enpass Extension <=> Browser that is not working.
