Enpass Assistant is unable to connect with the Enpass app.


Recommended Posts


I started using Enpass today, but the browser extensions on Firefox and Chrome can't connect to the app.

Here is what I did:

1. Installed Enpass on Ubuntu 21.04 (running X11, not Wayland)

> sudo snap install enpass
enpass from Christos Miniotis (chrismin13) installed

2. Installed Firefox extension v6.6.2

3. Installed Chromium extension v6.6.2

4. Clicked on extension icon in Firefox (same behavior in Chromium)

5. Dialog "Choose an application to open the empassstart link" pops up

6. Clicked Enpass

7. Enpass desktop application received focus, but no dialog pops up

8. Extension shows "Connection Error!", "Enpass Assistant is unable to connect with the Enpass app."

9. Same results when clicking retry

10. Same results when enabling "Always run Assistant in docked mode" setting

11. Logs remain empty

12. Checked port

> lsof -i:10391
Enpass  143731 sepp   30u  IPv4 1027803      0t0  TCP localhost:10391 (LISTEN)


Is there a way to manually sync the extension with the desktop app?

Please advice.

Hi Garima,

I followed the instructions you provided and installed Enpass via apt-get.

With this installation and when enabling "docked mode" in the settings, Enpass now connected successfully with both Firefox and Chromium extensions.

Thank you for your help!
