Don't open application window on login

Recommended Posts


Since I upgraded macOS to the Big Sur release, Enpass starts on user login with its main window open in the center of the screen. Could you please fix it? AFAIR it used to open in the menu bar on startup, but now the main window opens as well.


Best regards,

Hey @Garima Singh,

Now neither the menu bar icon nor the main window shows up. I'm not sure if you understood me correctly. My intention was to make the tool icon in the menu bar appear right after logging in, without the main window showing up at the center of the screen so that I don't have to close it every time I start my computer.

Thanks, @Garima Singh

I don't like giving negative feedback, but I'm feeling more and more disappointed by the app. I have an impression that you concentrate too much on delivering new features at the expense of improving UX-related details and fixing bugs. Sometimes I get overwhelmed. A couple of days ago I opened Enpass mini to an empty list of passwords. I couldn't search for anything, the list remained empty. I had to open the main window to search for a password.

Just a moment ago I opened Enpass 6.6.0 (772) to see a transparent window (see the attachment).

Searching in Enpass mini does not always let you copy a password with the keyboard shortcut without manually selecting/focusing an item that is already selected.

When you open Enpass mini and type the main password, then click CMD + E to open the main window, it asks you for the main password for the second time, or even if there appears the fingerprint icon, you have to click it manually to authorize with your finger, as if it wasn't obvious that this is the preferred method. You won't believe how frustrating it becomes when it repeats over and over again. You can go super secure or ignorant about such details, but at some point the user may feel that they would rather prefer to use the same password everywhere not to have to use a password manager.

Sometimes I still close Enpass coincidentally (CMD + Q), so the global keyboard shortcut for showing Enpass mini becomes unavailable. Still Enpass mini and Enpass are a single app, so closing the main window closes Enpass mini too.

I loved Enpass at the beginning especially because of its price value ratio compared to other solutions, like 1Password, that I find great, yet slightly too expensive. At this point, however, I'm starting to thinking that paying more may have a positive aspect of becoming less frustrated.

I apologize for all these thoughts, but maybe it will be something to consider for you. Unless I'm one of few, in which case my point of view is dismissible.

Hey @Mariusz

We really understand how frustrating to see some features not working as it should be. We are improvising the app and all the above issues have been noted and will be fixed in future builds. Please bear with us a little more.

We are already aware of this issue on macOS where Enpass password list shows empty and our team has fixed this in the next update of Enpass app. Hopefully, it will be available within this week. Stay tuned for the same and share your feedback.
