Password audit - identical

Recommended Posts

There is something really wrong happening when Enpass uses password audit for identical passwords. On any of my 4 devices I have different results (in total I have 4 vaults and all 4 are synced on every of the mentioned devices - so it's about the same conditions):

iPad - 8
iPhone - 40
Mac - 90
Linux PC - 2

None of them seems to be correct :S

iPad: 
Shows 3 groups of items, where 2 of them are correct (I have 3 items for one website with the same password on 3 different vaults and another 2 items for another website on 2 different vaults). And 1 item in an extra group (see the Mac issue below).

Linux PC:
Shows 2 groups of items, but one of it is not complete (see above, but for the first website there are only 2 items shown instead of 3).

Mac:
Here it get's really confusing (just look at the screenshot):

iPhone:
A bit similar to my Mac, but here it is something different and very confusing, too. I have one item, where I store credential for multiple accounts. For each password this item contains, there is a group of identical passwords created and in this group besides the mentioned item is another item which contains exactly 0 (zero!) passwords. The only similarity these 2 items have: their names - e.g.: "abc" and "abc *xyz*".

BUT:
I have at least another 2 items with the same credentials for 2 different websites, which are using the same database. Only my Mac shows them as identical besides all that crap with only 1 item per "group of identical passwords". Unfortunately none of the other devices, which seems to be closer to the correct result, is showing them.

I'm a bit upset as none of the Enpass apps on 3 different OS provides a correct result.

 

Furthermore: if there is an identical password found in 2 different items and was removed from 1 of those 2 items on some device, other devices do not remove it from the list (even after successful sync).

With the latest versions all the confusing behavior was solved, but I still have an issue with Enpass correctly handle the password audit feature.

I have at least another 2 items with the same credentials for 2 different websites, which are using the same database. Besides this I have 3 items for one account of a website with different usernames (but each item is stored in a different Enpass vault. With the current version none of the apps is listing these items having identical passwords!

I agree. There seem to be 2 issues. It appears that the 'Identical' Password Audit is not working correctly or consistently between devices AND there are numerous entries that only show one password being identical.

I am using one Vault and syncing 2 Windows 10 PCs and 1 Android Phone.

1st Win10 PC - 77 Identical
2nd Win10 PC - 87 Identical
Android Phone - 120 Identical

Also, most of these entries show 1 occurrence and should not show up in the Identical list since it should take at least 2 occurrences to be 'Identical'. Right?

The other Password Audit fields appears to count correctly, as best as I can tell. They are at least consistent between PC and Phone devices.

I’ve signed up to the forum just to upvote this....

I’m a new EnPass user, and I too have this issue.

The identical section is just borked. 
 

a.  It can’t count. Shows 23, or 20 or 17 depending on which device you are on, but manual count shows 15 across all devices.

b.  I also have it showing 1 identical. How can one be identical.....it requires 2?
 

c.  2 that it shows are identical are in fact not. Different by 1 character.

Hey @ProximusAl

Welcome to the forum!

Please share the following details so that we can investigate better-

  • On which device (along with OS version) are you using Enpass and having this issue?
  • Which Enpass version are you using on the same device?

Thanks.

I have the samy issue here on android.

I fixed all identical passwords on windows and my android phone succesfully synced.

Android enpass menu says 4 identical passwords when I open it there are only 2 but they are not identical....

Tried to delete the cache but that didn't help. Any other way to refresh that list?
