Enpass on M1 (Mac ARM Silicon)


Recommended Posts

I just ordered a new Mac mini, but I won't be able to use it at all if Enpass doesn't work on it. I looked around and I haven't seen anyone talking about it but I did see a bunch of posts saying that enpass doesn't work at all on ARM Linux, and is not natively supported on ARM Windows, which scares me a lot. Is enpass currently working natively or even with Rosetta on ARM macs?

My guess it'll be a few or several months before many applications are natively ported over to the M1 ARM architecture, I'm sure Enpass themselves are actively working on this internally. That being said, hopefully Enpass will run under the rosetta emulation layer, but we shall see as the units start getting out next week. I'm curious myself, please report your findings with rosetta.

I am on my MacBook Air now, just came today. Enpass requires Rosetta 2 but absolutely works. Only tested the desktop app and the Safari plugin presently. No reason to think it won't work with Chrome either, I just haven't gotten around to downloading it yet.

Of course, I too want a native ARM version, but in the mean time, it's a relatively light weight application and runs just fine.

That's great to hear. I'm definitely fine with Rosetta too. I've seen people talking about Qt not running on ARM yet so I was afraid it would not work at all. When people say "it doesn't work" they very rarely specify what they mean by that (not running at all or requiring Rosetta).

Hi,

works with rosetta but fingerprint is disabled. It sends me to a dead link https://www.enpass.io/biometric-not-available/.

The error text is touch ID isn't enabled on this Mac (Macbook Air M1).

Was thinking of getting the black friday deal but not without fingerprint.

Unfortunately there also are some annoying graphical errors with Enpass on the Apple M1 (Apple Silicon) - in the app itself, as well as in the browser extionsion.

It would be great if Enpass could release an native / Universal App optimized for the new M1 chip, as many competitors already did.

I just bought an M1, and Enpass works on it. and fingerprint too. 

Note that if you are using an external display and your lid is closed, then yes, fingerprint is disabled.

Thanks. Can you pls confirm that browsers xtensions and auto fill works too

Hey @mries1

As of now, Enpass will run M1 chips with an inbuilt compatibility layer. We are looking to fix it in two stages. First to release an optimized version for the compatibility layer. The user interface of Enpass uses cross-platform Qt Toolkit, which is currently not stable now for M1 native supports. We will release a native build just after that.

@John DoePlease be informed that some users reported an only issue with fingerprint/touch ID on M1 and we are working to fix the same issue.

Also, we have reverted you on the other post. Let me know if you have any concerns. Thanks!

So I finally got my Mac M1 and here is my feedback 

I downloaded the latest version of enpass from

their website.  Everything is working fine including the safari extension and autofill.  No issues to report. 
 

one quirk is that upon reboot the main enpass app window opens and asks me to use Touch ID to unlock it.  Upon doing so it unlocks and I am good to go 

 

previously upon startup the main enpass window never showed up.  Only on using the app it would ask to enter Touch ID or master  password.  How do I get back that behavior please where enpass window doesn’t upon ok it’s own upon startup

 

thanks

Hi @John Doe,

Thanks for sharing your inputs.

Please disable the option ‘Open Automatically at  system startup’ from the General settings of Enpass and share your findings with us.

Hope this helps!

That made it much better - thanks

Hi @stepini,

I would like to inform you that Enpass uses the Qt framework as user interface library. It does not have M1 support yet. It is expected to be available in September. We plan to release native Enpass for the M1 platform by the end of this year. Till then, we will request you to please co-operate with us.

Thanks!
