Enpass use on multiple PC

Recommended Posts

I've installed and registered Enpass on my laptop and it works great. Now that I've confirmed it does everything I want, I need to set up Enpass on my wife's desktop.

What would be the process for making this happen based on the following information:

a) Enpass (free version) is currently installed on my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro having one SSD.

b) My wife's desktop is a Dell XPS 8930 having one SSD (C drive with ops system) and one HDD (D drive with user date)

c) Both machines share the same microsoft account and share the same OneDrive which is synced at all times

I "assume" I need a subscription based Enpass to allow multiple device use

I'm not sure how to set up Enpass properly on my wife's desktop to insure we are both using the same Enpass database (vault).

Based on what I know at this point is that my laptop Enpass vault currently resides in my user folder. 

If I install Enpass on her Desktop, the Enpass vault would exist in her user folder.

Therefore, it looks like two separate vaults... thus my confusion as to how to set up a shared Enpass network environment.

Kindly provide any advise to properly set up Enpass on multiple PC's.   Thanks in addvance.

I'm a little frustrated as I have not yet received any replies to my post.

I'm therefore going to "temporarily" make my assumptions while installing Enpass on  my wife's desktop PC.

a) Download and install Enpass on desktop and register with same email used with the laptop install. Use the "same" master password that was used for the laptop install.

b) build website details with the same csv import used when building the laptop version of Enpass to insure both laptop and desktop vaults are identical.

c) there is no need to download and install the Enpass Edge extension as it already exists because both machines are always in sync because they use the same microsoft account and share the same OneDrive cloud.

d) run Enpass backup and sync to OneDrive.

I'm not sure the above procedure is correct for 2 reasons:

1) I do not see any files on OneDrive that suggest a synced vault exist. The only file(s) that I see is the Enpass backup file... I'm confused here

2) Enpass website details suggest that if you want to run Enpass on multiple devices you need the subscription based version of Enpass...

I'm hopeful someone will reply to my last 2 posts so I can educate my wife on the use of Enpass,,,

Thanks in advance.

I'm again replying to my own post as I have further information based on a recent discovery.

I found out that there is a synced vault file that exist on my OneDrive under folder APPS/ENPASS.

I did not/could not see that folder from my File Explorer view on my Laptop.

I found it there when I looked at OneDrive via the web view.

I would still appreciate some feedback as to how to set up Enpass on my wife's Desktop computer based on the "assumptions" I've made in my previous post.

Thanks in advance.

I am again replying to my own post as I have not yet received any reply from others.

Since I did not receive any advise I went on my own assumptions.

I therefore installed Enpass on my wife's desktop using the same email to registered when I installed Enpass on my Laptop.

I subsequently installed the Microsoft Edge browser Enpass Extension. Following the verification of the Edge Enpass extension link to my wife's Enpass vault on her desktop, the vault was immediately synced and populated with the same web login and password details as my Laptop via the OneDrive cloud utilized by both of our devices.

I guess all is well at this point.

I assumed that if I were using Enpass on multiple devices I would need a subscription based version of Enpass. I can not only assume that this only applies if you are also using Enpass on a mobil device (e.g. cell phone). I personally will not be doing this as I'm fearful of using mobil devices for financial activity of any kind. My fear lies in the fact that cell phones can be lost and/or stolen.

Any comments from others regarding all the above are welcome.

Hey @JJK

Thanks for using Enpass and writing to us. Also, sorry for the delay in response.

As far as I understood you wish to sync your Enpass database so that you and your wife both can access and edit the database saved in Enpass. To do so, please follow the steps mentioned below-

  • Open Enpass on your device and go to Enpass settings --> Click on 'Vaults' --> Select the vault which you wish to share with your wife---> Select ‘Set up Sync’ and choose a cloud account to your database.
  • Enter your cloud account details, follow the instructions, and wait till the sync is done.
  • Open Enpass on your wife’s Phone--> Click on ‘Settings’ → Click on ‘Vaults’ -->Click on “+“ and create a new vault/ Select the vault you wish to sync ---> Select ‘Set up Sync’ and choose the same cloud account from which you had enabled sync on your device.
  • Once the sync is done, the database from your device will be restored(visible) on your wife’s phone.

Also, you can refer to this FAQ. Let me know if you have any query.

Hope this helps!

Kashish, Thanks for your reply.

Please note that based on my prior posts, I was attempting to install and sync Enpass on my wife's desktop computer and NOT on her phone.

We, merely wish to utilize Enpass on our respective PC's (e.g., her desktop & my laptop) and have the vaults in sync at all times.
