Lock enpass when switching to different app

I found this thread when searching for the same problem: I’m tired of Enpass on iOS and iPadOS not respecting the Lock After Leaving setting. Specifically, when the setting is set to OFF, the app still locks immediately upon switching to and back from another app. This is highly frustrating, as is seeing that this threat has gone unanswered for a year now.

I wonder if this bug is not related to the fact that the app “blanks out” the moment you switch to another app and appears so when you browse all your open apps. This is a security option in some apps and is, frankly, useless. There does not appear to be a setting in Enpass to turn that on or off, as in certain other apps. You need to provide a setting to turn that off, too.)

I am having what I think is the same problem on my iPad mini. If I unlock Enpass, then try to use it to enter password information on some app, the blue window to enter the Enpass master password is shown. I have tried using the split screen so that both apps (Enpass and the app that needs the login info), are open and visible and that doesn't help. The security settings don't make a difference. It's extremely tedious to enter the master password on an iPad mini, so I don't want to do it more than should be needed. After I enter the master password yet another time, the login works as it should.

I am using the free version of Enpass but had (past tense) planned to get a paid version because I really like the program. With this flaw, I will wait or skip it altogether. Please fix this.

This doesn’t solve the main problem which is the topic of this thread, but if your device doesn’t have FaceID (which is the quickest way to unlock Enpass) you can try to set up the PIN unlock option in Enpass Security Settings, which you might find a faster way to unlock than typing the full password.

I played with this feature as it is so anoying. Here what I figured out:

If you switch ON "Lock after Leaving" and switch it OFF again, than it does what it is supposed to do.
So there seams to be an issue with keeping the setting or with the initial setting.
But at least this is a possibility to get is working.
