Microsoft OneDrive permissions

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been a user of Enpass since the Windows Phone days. Purchased a licence back then and used to sync to my OneDrive. After being forced to move to Android, I again purchased an Android licence to have my passwords synced between my PC and my Android device.

I recently noticed while setting the app up on a new phone that the permissions requested to access OneDrive seem to have increased since the last time I went though the exercise.

 
Enpass needs your permission to:
1. Sign in automatically
Signing in with your Microsoft account will automatically sign you in to this app.
2. Access your info anytime
Enpass will be able to see and update your info, even when you're not using this app.
 
3. Work with its own folder in OneDrive
Enpass will be able to open and edit files in the "Apps/Enpass" folder.
 
4. Access OneDrive files
Enpass will be able to open and edit OneDrive files, including files shared with you.
 

Before posting here, I came across this forum topic dating back to 2017 where another user had exactly this problem, and was assured that it would be taken care of soon. Looks like a year and a half later, the problem still exists.

Like Steffan said, Enpass should not need anything except the third permission in the list above. Letting Enpass, or any other app for that matter, have the ability to see and update my Microsoft account info anytime, and have access to all my OneDrive folders, is not something I am comfortable with.

Do you guys have a time line for having this problem resolved?

 

Thanks,

Joe.
