Wi-Fi Sync stopped working "Wrong master password"

Recommended Posts

I use Wi-Fi sync for years but it suddenly stopped working. Mac is server and active, trying to sync the iPhone I get en error message in vault settings: "password  for data on Wi-Fi sync needed".

When I select "solve" it wants me to put in a "password for the data on Wi-Fi Sync". Filling this out it says, master password will be changed if I move on, but anyways if I try the Wi-Fi sync password or the Enpass master password I get an error "wrong password".

I already tried to set ab a new Wi-Fi sync connection using the QR code with no success.

I can use Enpass on the Mac and on the iPhone with the old settings, but can't sync the data anymore.

Please try the below steps  in order to resolve this issue

  • I would suggest you disconnect the Wifi-Sync server from the connected devices and set it up by following the steps in the link - https://www.enpass.io/wifi-sync/, or manually by following the steps in this link - https://www.enpass.io/wifi-sync-manual-setup/ 
  • Ensure that you have allowed access to Enpass in your Firewall/Antivirus Settings. Moreover, if you are using any VPN service, try disabling it to check if the issue persists. 
  • Check that time is set to automatic and is same on all your devices. 
  • You can also refer to this highly useful troubleshooting guide in case you get the same error after creating a manual Wifi-sync server - https://www.enpass.io/troubleshooting-wifi-sync/ 
  • Otherwise, create a manual backup of your Enpass data and then reinstall the app on the affected device.
