Make Windows Hello the default auth method


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

in the UWP its possible to start the app and just use Windows Hello, would like to see this in the new version of Enpass too.

And atm after Enpass locked the current session, you've to manually select Hello to unlock, it's just an extra step, but after a while it gets really annoying :-) 

 

thanks

Version 6 is out and the problem still exists.

What's the purpose of Windows Hello? Right, to Login without Password! 

So why do I have to type in my Masterpasswort the first time I open up Enpass?

For now Windows Hello integration in Enpass is really usless.

Agreed - this is ultra-annoying. I need to get my Android Enpass to get my master password to get my Windows Enpass. And the extra click on the face icon is plain unnecessary.

Off-topic: why didn't this thread show up when did a global search for "hello" in this forum?

I'm usign a Yubikey, and for startup my password/PIN is asked anyway. one my identity has been confirmed at OS level, Enpass should accept Windows Hello (Yubikey in this case) as enough to be able to start enpass.

A 'autounlock at start if Windows Hello is accepted / key is connected' option should exist for this use-case.

Hey Guys

Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

We would like to inform you that currently, Enpass asks for the master password in these scenarios even if you have enabled the ‘Windows Hello’ :

  • System re-start
  • When you quit Enpass and starts fresh

However, we do have plans to improve the 'Windows Hello' functionality for full-time support and update will be available with the subsequent update of Enpass.

Thanks for your co-operation!
