Hello, When using enpass, the windows desktop app search is very slow (1~4 seconds) I've been a developer for 16 years, so I've come across situations like this before. To the developers of enpass, have you tried using indexes? For an example of a client facing, near-instant search: "SearchEverything" (https://www.voidtools.com/) performs near-instant searches across all file names on your filesystem (3.1 million+ objects on my system). For an example of an off the shelf opensource search solution: "ElasticSearch" (https://www.elastic.co/) is a software package that can be used by companies to perform lightning fast index based searches for their customers There is no need for it to take several seconds to do this search! You can index on non-sensitive information, and then decrypt the password when the user requests it (copy/view password) It might be worth have a look into. If you're already doing this, why is it so slow compared to other index based searching? Do you need to re-model your index structure? Thank you for reading! I see this is a common pain point of enpass usage. If you could fix this, enpass becomes a very easy recommendation!

I use enpass a lot, but my password is quite long and takes ages to enter. Both mobile apps allow for biometric unlocks thanks to their respective TPM modules. I would like to take advantage of that since there is no biometric authentication for the Desktop app. First you would link the two devices through a shared secret (prefereably QR-encoded). After that the Desktop app would be able to receive the password encrypted with the shared secret via the local network. The Desktop app then decrypt the vault as usual. Voila: Biometric unlocks for the Desktop app. When properly encrypting the password, this approach shouldn‘t be vulnerable. If you have access to the screen and keyboard/mouse to view the passwords you already have physical access to a machine, enabling more meaningful attacks. The specifics are up to you. I‘ve been really happy with your additions and I think you could implement this is a save and easy to use way.
While browsing e.g. several items to quick verify the password of each item it would be great to quick reveal (show) the password with a shortcut. Currently it can be done only with the mouse by clicking on the eye symbol but that breaks the flow. In some other password save apps this is done by using a modifier key press (e.g. the option key) -> while holding it, the password is revealed - releasing the key and the password is hidden again.
Dear Enpass, I have a rather annoying issue with the Windows Desktop application. I started changing my old weak passwords. The desktop app shows an "Password Audit" on the left side. Under "Identical" I have several hits. One of which has allmost 50 logins in it. So, I wanted to change them all. Starting from the top, to the bottom. But I came across an annoying bug. Please follow these steps: > Password Audit > Identical > Click certain password with multiple hits > List with logins shows in the middle > Click any login > Change the password for that login and save > Login disappears from list That's all fine. But after that you can do anything you want (start changing the second login of whatever) but the screen allways gets redirected to "All Items". So if you, like me, have 50 or more logins to change, you again have to do these steps > Password Audit > Identical > Click certain password with multiple hits > List with logins shows in the middle > Click any login every damn time after you saved a new password. This is really making a time consuming job even more time consuming. I don't understand why the desktop app redirects me to "all items" after I save a new login/password under "Password Audit > Identical > certain password" Hope you guys understand what I'm trying to explain. If not, please let me know.
