[Bug] "Wrong Face ID" and Master password not working

Recommended Posts

It happened again. All of a sudden the iPhone app has stopped working. I can't say if it happened because of an app update or later. Whenever I launch the Enpass app, I get a "Wrong Face ID" error message and I am asked the master password. Entering the correct master password won't help.

Please notice that:

  1. Auto fill-in works on the very same device, after sucessfully authenticating me via Face ID! It's just the app itself that can't be launched
  2. I am sure the master password is correct since I use it on two other devices (one iPad and one PC) with success

I have seen a similar problem reported before, for example in

but it was treated as a "I forgot the master password" issue, but it's really a bug: I do know the correct password and there's no reason why Face ID should stop working all of a sudden.

As I said, it happened me already and I fixed by uninstalling the app, re-installing it and re-syncing with the cloud, authenticating me with the master password. I'll probably do it again, but it's kind of annoying.

- Device: iPhone X
- iOS: 12.0
- App version: 5.6.1
