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).
