A new beta for Traditional Windows is now available with bunch of new features, bug fixes and quality improvements

Recommended Posts

Dear Beta Subscribers!

We are getting closer and closer to the release date, and we’re happy to announce the finest beta with the improvements and bug fixes reported by you guys in the previous Beta. Unlike the previous beta versions of Enpass 6 which came as a separate app, this beta will come over the existing Enpass 5 application in your PC.

While we add some finishing touches, get your hands on this beta and share your valuable feedback.

IMPORTANT NOTES FROM DEVELOPER

  • Must save a BACKUP: Before installing this beta, it is highly recommended to take a backup of your data manually from any Enpass version you are using. You can take a backup via Enpass > File > Backup.
  • Installation NOTES: Unlike the previous beta versions of Enpass 6 so far, this one will come over and replace your current Enpass 5 app, and your data will be upgraded to support the new architecture of v6. And if you're having the previous beta version of Enpass 6, it will also get automatically uninstalled, so please take the backup of that one as well. Once the database is upgraded to v6, it can't be downgraded or restored into previous Enpass versions.
  • Sync incompatibility: Sync in Enpass v6 works entirely in new, efficient way and syncs to the different location (generally in destined App folders on cloud service providers) than the previous versions released so far. It will neither synchronize with and nor restore data of any previous versions (Enpass 5 and previous Enpass 6 beta). So if you want to start testing of this beta as a clean install on some other device on which you are not having Enpass 5 (i.e., not over your existing Enpass 5 app), the only way is to restore data from the backup file.
  • Browser extension incompatibility: The current Enpass 5 browser extensions are not compatible with the v6. You can download and install the latest extensions from here
  • Settings restoration: All your Enpass 5 settings will get reset, and you have to Re-configure them individually. 
  • Edge Browser Extension: Extension for Edge Browser will be available through PackageFlight and if you are interested, please subscribe to our Windows 10 Beta program.
  • - Some of the newly added features like Windows Hello, Dark Theme, Custom Categories, and Templates are supported in our Windows Store version only which we will start delivering through the PackageFlight. If you are interested, please subscribe to our Windows 10 beta program where you need to provide your Microsoft Account ID (E-mail).

What's New

  • Multiple vaults: This is one of the most demanded features in Enpass that lets you have separate vaults for better segregation of your data. You can create multiple vaults for personal and work data and share with your family or team members by syncing through a common cloud account. However, each of your vaults requires a different cloud account to sync with.
    • To create a new vault, go to app Settings > Vaults > Tap the ‘+‘ icon, and follow the instructions to create your new vault.
  • Sync through iCloud: Now the support for iCloud sync is not limited to Apple devices only, you can use it on other platforms as well.
  • Favicons: Enpass 6 can automatically download and set the icon associated with the particular website or URL saved in an item. You can enable it from the Enpass Settings > Customize > Enable Use Favicon.
  • Custom icons: We've also introduced a much-requested feature; Custom icons, which allows you to set any image as an icon for any item in Enpass.
  • Secure sharing: This version brings secured sharing where you can share an item encrypted with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK). You can create PSK from the Advanced Settings of Enpass after which an additional option to Encrypt with PSK will appear while sharing the item. You need to share the PSK with the intended recipient which he needs to enter while importing the item.
  • Keyfile support: You can now additionally use a Keyfile along with the master password to log into Enpass. Only the desktop versions allow you to generate keyfile while setting up the master password.
  • Trash: Trash is here. From now onwards, every item you delete will go in the Trash first from where you can recover or permanently delete it.
  • Archive: You can archive the items which are no longer in use, but you don't want to delete them as well. The archived item won't appear in any search results.
  • Sorting options: Added options to sort the list of items by Created Time, Modified Time, Recently Used and Frequently Used.
  • Multi-line fields: Added a new field-type as multi-line field which allows you to save information in more than one line. You can make any field a multi-line field by changing its field type from the item edit page.
  • Identity: We've introduced a new default category Identity to let you fill those long, tedious identity forms with a single click.
  • Added localization support for Afrikaans, Malay, Croatian, Hungarian, Indonesian, Romanian, Slovak and Swedish.

Improvements

  • Cloud synchronization: The new Enpass 6 now syncs the Enpass data into the designated App folder on the cloud, unlike it used to do in the root folder for OneDrive, and Google Drive. Along with this, the app now requires minimal permissions and will give relief to our folks who raised concerns regarding the list of permissions the Enpass was asking while configuring the sync, especially in case of OneDrive. Also, as Enpass 6 is based on a new architecture, it will not sync and restore data from previous Enpass 5 and Enpass 6 beta versions.
  • Browser extensions: The new browser extension is now called Enpass Assistant with improved security, auto-filling, and auto-capturing. While setting initial connection, you would need to pair the browser first. It also allows you to autofill in pages with more than two fields.
  • Improved Password generator and strength estimation: We have improved the password generator with the new user interface, option for excluding the symbols and the better strength estimation using zxcvbn. So there might be chances that the password shown as strong in Enpass v5 will be displayed as Weak in Enpass 6.
  • Tags: The erstwhile Folder feature is now known as Tags. All your existing Folders and sub-folders will be replaced by the Tags and sub-tags respectively. 
  • Separate section for items with TOTP or Attachments: Many of you folks requested that items with TOTP or attachments should be grouped and displayed together, and here you'll see the separate sections for both TOTP and Attachments in the Sidebar.
  • Eight digits TOTP support: Previously the app was restricted to generate only six digits TOTPs making it difficult for some folks who were using eight-digit TOTPs. Now this limitation has been removed, and you can freely add TOTP to quickly login into accounts.
  • Checking Pwned passwords for the complete database: A significant improvement in checking the pwned passwords! Now instead of checking a single password for pwnage, you can check all passwords saved in your database.
  • Better with importing data from other password managers.
  • A lot of other minor improvements.

Fixes over Previous Enpass 6 Beta

  • There was an issue raised by some of you guys where If a user was adding an attachment containing any language specific characters ( å, ä, ö, etc.), then the app was crashing while saving the item. Well now, Fixed.
  • A bug where WebDAV sync wasn't configuring over the Seafile server, now fixed.
  • Fixed an issue where pressing the ESC key wasn't clearing the search field.
  • Fixed an issue where copying or moving an item from one vault to another, lost all its assigned tags.

Get it Now

We are continually working to boost the quality of Enpass before the official release and devoting a lot of time in improvements and bug fixes. And we are eagerly waiting for your feedback on our forums. 

With Love to our Windows users!!❤️❤️

Hi,

Unable to allow Google Drive and sync my vault. It seems blocked on permissions to access on Google Drive.

It display that permissions are allowed, but in fact, in Apps section of google account, it does not appears. I tried to remove the old enpass authorization and retry, no way. The google drive authorization request failed (but it display that it's ok).

I tried webdav synchro too, it crashed the enpass application like previous beta version...

In my case it didn't uninstall enpass 5, also didn't make an upgrade.I import old data manualy.

Also, as far I can say it is not really installed in the system.

Now I can't sync with any cloud because of the problem with protocols association.

I authorize Enpass in my cloud (Onedrive, Google Drive) but Enpass become no answer from browser.

Here is everything one more time:

1. No installation routine

2. No deinstallation routine of Enpass 5

3. No upgrade routine from Enpass 5

4. Sync setup doesn't work. Protocol assocation error "enpassauth:"

5. When Enpass is closed and try to open Browser Extension, comes assocation error with protocol "enpassstart:"

6. Adding new login doesn't work.

 

I'm using Windows 10 Enterprise 1803 (17134.407)

I have exactly the same issue. Enpass is running and unlocked during my tests

What have I done to try and solve this:

  • Reinstall Chrome plugin
  • Enable / disable browser plugin in enpass
  • Reinstall Chrome
  • Reinstall Enpass
  • Remove “.sync”and “.settings” in my enpass folder
  • Reboot
  • Full cleanup of enpass and chrome including manual cleanup ( Registry entries, folders, appdata...)

But nothing worked!

I am REALLY pissed off at this.

Honestly, how dare you force me into a beta situation. I RELY on my password vault across my PCs, tablets, and phone 10s of times per day and I need to working 100% reliably.

Now, you decide to forgo the previous side-by-side beta experience (a good way to do it) and force everyone into your beta?? I appreciate you want to put out the best version of the product on release and thus it probably made sense in your minds to pull in more users to beta test, but FORCING us into your beta test program with no way to decline or opt-out is simply unforgivable.

I had always been a strong advocate of Enpass over other solutions like Lastpass but this behaviour by you will make me never in good faith recommend your product again.

What does this even mean?

It seems that the link in the article downloads a standalone enpass.exe

There is no installer. How does this "come over the existing Enpass 5 application"?

Do you copy it manually? 

What if you are using the bridged traditional desktop vesrion of Enpass 5? does this still apply?

Did you forget that you opted into this Beta? You can use Enpass 5 without any issues still to this day. You opted to start testing the Beta, therefore you opted in to how this beta rolls out. If you don't want it to overwrite Enpass 5, then don't use the Beta, wait for the stable Enpass 6. Chill out bro.

There is a difference between using betas within a current version line and being forced up to a major new version of a product which is completely incompatible with the previous version (and to which they've botched up the upgrade).

This morning I found my phone had been upgraded to Enpass 6. My PCs are all using Enpass 5. I'm now screwed.

So, I did not have a choice in this matter.

Please refrain from telling people how to feel when you really don't understand the full circumstances.

I understand more than you think I do. Currently still running Enpass 5 and Enpass 6 Beta side by side on Windows and Linux. The phone part, I see your point, but again, you had to opt into the Beta to get the one that overwrites Enpass 5, I know, because my buddy hasn't opted into the Beta at all and he's still fine running Enpass 5 on his phone.

I'm a Beta tester, so mine updated, and it clearly delineates that I joined the Beta program on the Play Store.

So again, chill out bro. You got yourself into this mess. Be nice and I'm sure someone will try and help you out.

[Update. I get it now. Never mind]

Dumb question, which is the Traditional Windows version? Put it another way, what exactly is it called in the Microsoft Store?

I also can not connect the Windows client to Chrome extension.

Also the app itself is WAY more slowly/buggy than the previous release.

I jut hope I can get my data out of this mess and switch to Bitwarden.

Hi all,

I had the same issues this morning with the browser extension not working. This how I fixed it.

·       Open Enpass

·       Unlock Enpass

·       Ensure the “Enable Browser Extension” is checked.

·       Exit Enpass!

·       Open Edge (This worked for me so I haven’t tried other “real” browser).

·       Ensure you are running the Enpass 6 browser extension.

·       Click or double click and follow the instructions.

·       Enpass desktop app with launch and you’ll be prompted to enter a code.

Should work.

Let me know how you get on.

To Enpass:

We should have had a choice and or warning about the upgrade of our production data! Unlike the other beta, my client updated without far warning.

To users:

ONLY sign up for a beta program if you are willing to except all issues with a beta! Crying over lost or broken functionality in a beta program is redundant. Beta uses are invited to help the dev process and thus should expect bugs!

Happy hunting,

M

Hi All,

First of all, many thanks for being the part of Enpass Beta program!

I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to you. It was a mistake from our end where the wrong link of the installer was published on our website. We have corrected the link and you can redownload the installer from here.

Now coming to the issues with the browser extensions. When you install this beta update, all your Enpass app settings will get reset, and you need to re-enable them individually including the browser extensions. Along with this, the current Enpass browser extensions (v5) are not compatible with Enpass 6 app, and you need to update the extensions manually.

Please let me know if you still face any problem or issue.
