Full-Time Windows Hello in Enpass 6

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I was using Enpass UWP for Windows 10 with full-time Windows Hello enabled, because my computer fulfills all necessary requirements (TPM 2.0, UEFI Secure Boot). So Enpass UWP successfully detected that the machine is secure enough to store the keys in hardware/TPM and use Windows Hello directly on the first launch even after a computer restart or when Enpass UWP was completely closed.

Now with Enpass 6, it is only using the fallback solution of asking for the master password the first time after restart, and using Windows Hello only for subsequent unlocks. I think Enpass 6 is great and a big improvement in many things, but in this particular aspect it feels like kind of a stepback.

So my question is: Will full-time Windows Hello be supported in Enpass 6 again like it was in Enpass UWP for computers which fulfill the necessary requirements for hardware/TPM-based security?

Yes please. This was something I really loved from the UWP app. I hope the Enpass team will once again built this in for devices with TPM. Would be nice to hear something from the Enpass team abut this. Is this feature planned to return for the release?

Yes! Please bring this back. If Android is safe enough to offer this, then I can't imagine Windows 10 not offering the hooks.

Apart from the convenience: I really don't want people to be able read along when I type my master password. So actually one could argue that not offering Windows Hello on the first start-up , could actually be interpreted as a security flaw/risk... ;)  (imagine standing in a crowded metro trying to log into something).

So please bring full-time Hello back, I had got myself a license for the UWP app just to have this!

And @tox1c90 : it's even worse than just after a fresh boot: if you don't leave Enpass running in the task-tray it'll NEVER offer you Windows Hello login :)
