Advantages and disadvantages of using our own cloud sync vs Wifi Sync ?


Recommended Posts

Hi @ng4ever,

Welcome to the Enpass Community,

Cloud Sync : By the term cloud-sync, we mean that your data can be synced with the cloud of your choice (check supported clouds) and not with our server as we don’t store any of your private data.

Cloudless Sync or Wi-Fi Sync: With cloudless sync, you can sync your data across devices over a local Wi-Fi/network, or with any folder on your device, without the need of any cloud service. To use Wi-Fi Sync, you need to start Wi-Fi Sync server from a desktop device on the network and host the vaults from that desktop to which other device on the network can connect and sync. So it’s a two step process–

  1. Setting up Wi-Fi Sync Server
  2. Configuring Sync on other devices.

If you want to ensure your data never leaves your local network then this is for you.

Does Wifi Sync update instantly or resync a lot by itself ?

Every time you unlock your Enpass, an auto-sync is initiated. (If Sync is turned on). Auto-sync also happens after every 15 secs, while the app is in the foreground.

Is data on EnPass encrypted before being uploaded to cloud sync ?

Yes, your cloud works only as a storage medium and no cryptographic operation (encryption or decryption) is performed there. All such operations are performed locally on your device and your data never leaves your device in unencrypted format. A copy of your encrypted data is downloaded on your device where it gets decrypted (locally) for real sync operation to merge changes. Afterwards, it gets encrypted again and uploaded back to the cloud.
