Search is no longer universal

Recommended Posts

In the new Enpass (6.0.0) for Windows, search is no longer universal--I can't just search for a field or password. Now we have to manually select "Title", "Field", or "Passwords" before searching. Why has the useful functionality of universal search been downgraded? 

By the way, I have "Search in all items" checked in settings, but that doesn't seem to change anything.

@Hassan, Fields search includes title and notes as well. Passwords are encrypted additionally inside database. So, searching will be slow if we include that in Fields search. Moreover, you hardly need to search a login by its password.

Problem seems to exist with the MacOS version also. If I try to search on part of a word (ie first 3 letters) not all items come up... this is for all content other than passwords. Before the big update it used to work. Makes it difficult when you have a large DB of content.

Just to confirm I have "Search in all items" checked in settings also.

Hi @Vinod Kumar

I think I have an issue with universal search. It seems to ignore email addresses containing a + sign.
For example: myname+something(at)tld, which you can do with Gmail. However, the search doesn't find anything if I look for myname+something(at)tld even though the fields option is selected.

Thanks!

I have this same complaint.  Search should be everything.  It's nice to have an option I suppose, but I would just like it to search everything; title, fields and definitely usernames.  I believe this behavior (search everything by default) was present in Enpass 5.

Just to add to this, I don't need the ability to search passwords, but please set a default for all other fields, or allow the end user to make that functionality happen via a setting.  Thank you.

Just to reiterate, I find it quite a downgrade that the new update doesn't let us search everything, and now we have to choose the type of search we want to do. I don't think anyone likes having their search limited like this. I really hope the Enpass devs reconsider this change.

Thanks for this - working for me now :). Glad I found this.

I thinking the search dropdown options could be slightly clearer, perhaps something like: 'Titles only' and 'All fields except passwords'. Perhaps 'All fields except passwords' could be the default too!

+1 Agreed. Or, just have an option in settings that brings back the old search.

I also think that the default search option should be to search in all fields except passwords and only passwords as a separate option.

We have improved this behavior and fix will be available in the next update.

Thanks!
