4 posts in this topic

Hi folks!

We have just rolled out a new update Enpass Beta v5.5.0.80 for Mac with Touch ID and Touch Bar support. Along with this, you will notice many other improvements and fixes. The complete changelog of this beta is here:

WHAT'S NEW

  • Touch ID and Touch Bar support: Now unlock the Enpass with your fingerprint on the Touch ID-supported MacBook Pro. Also, you will see the enhanced controls in the Touch Bar of your MacBook Pro.
  • Option to disable updates & analytics: Enpass connects to internet for cloud syncing, checking for updates and collecting anonymous analytics. From now onwards, you can control how you want to behave Enpass for update checking and sending Analytics from Advanced preferences. We recommend you to keep the update checking option enabled as this is the only way we can notify you regarding some important security news or update but participating in analytics program is your own choice.

IMPROVEMENTS

  • Improved attachments- We have improved the image compression while attaching images and have also added a zoom button to the Attachments Image viewer. 

FIXES

  • CSV/DSV Import- A very rare but critical bug that may lead to undefined behavior for any user action on any specific field of item imported using generic CSV/DSV importer. Fixed. 
  • There was an issue with File chooser dialog which when invoked over Preferences window, and  then user let the Enpass auto locks. Unlocking will the let the Enpass user interface in unstable state. Fixed and checked.
  • Fixed an issue where EnpassHelper gets crashed while unlocking browser extension with quick unlock PIN.
  • An issue where enabling sync with WebDAV/ownCloud was stuck at connecting has been fixed.
  • Enpass in Mavericks was crashing while exporting data. Fixed and checked.
  • Autosave dialog of Enpass helper used to behaving aberrantly by fluctuating once from localized to English language. Fixed.
  • SafeInCloud import notes bug fixed.
  • Other minor fixes.

Thank you for this long awaited and super helpful update! I love using Touch ID to unlock Enpass, but I think as of now it is missing a crucial feature: the Touch ID prompt does not open at once when I use the app. Instead of

click icon -> finger on Touch ID -> app unlocked

the current workflow looks like this:

click icon -> move mouse over fingerprint icon -> click -> finger no Touch ID -> app unlocked

which is quite unsatisfying as it takes longer than entering my Masterpassword. It would be super useful if either Touch ID is prompted directly or can be activated via a keyboard shortcut as a workaround (enables implementation in BetterTouchTool shortcuts).

 

Greetings,

Markus

Agreed. The app knows whether the database can be unlocked with TouchID, right? If so, then TouchID should obviously be the default unlocking option. I doubt anyone who has TouchID set up on their macOS account and Enpass would prefer to unlock their database by entering their password manually as a first choice.

Exactly what others said. Currently using Touch ID is almost as inconvenient as typing a password :)

Thanks for the new features and keep up the good work!
