Autofill not working on local address

Recommended Posts


I'm a web developper and I use Enpass frequently to login on my local app with different test accounts.

One of the last version of the app broke the autofill on local website (when the exact same build works on the remote URL).


  • OS: macOS Monterey v12.6
  • Browser: Google Chrome v111.0.5563.64
  • Chrome extension: Enpass Password Manager v6.8.3
  • Enpass version: 6.8.5 (1256) Mac App Store

PS: the issue is also present on another computer with Windows 11


I prepared a scenario you can reproduce on your side too. I used the RealWorld demo app so that you can reach it remotely and run locally as well.

  1. Create an entry in enpass with the following. Note that I created this account on the app:
  2. Go on the login page on the remote website: https://demo.realworld.io/#/login
  3. Select the account
    The autofill works as expected.
  4. Now open a terminal and run
    git clone https://github.com/mutoe/vue3-realworld-example-app.git
    cd vue3-realworld-example-app
    npm install
    npm run dev
  5. It should download, install and run the RealWorld demo app locally. Now reach the address displayed in the terminal. For me it's
  6. Go on the login page and select the login proposed by the extension
  7. Nothing happened. The field is not filled as expected

Thanks for your help,

Hi @all

While addressing this bug, we have determined that the autofill failure is linked to a protocol change in this scenario. To resolve this issue, could you kindly save an alternative URL with the 'HTTP' protocol in your Item for locally served websites and then share your observations with us?

Could you expand a bit on how to achieve this? I have added multiple versions (screenshot attached) but still not getting completions. 1204396983_Screenshot2023-10-11at17_16_38.thumb.png.cf92b41d73a6c42e38bf29cb1042d796.png
