Hi,

I have been using Enpass for a couple mounth now, after buying the Premium version which is very good.

However, I am a bit of a design nerd, and I was quite sad to see that the icon system was not so good, and it seems that I am not the only one:

  • Only a few icons are available by default.
  • Some icons are quite outdated (see the Netflix one).
  • Adding custom icons is long and buggy (the icons size is very messy).
  • We cannot remove custom icons (after trying to add the same icon in various sizes, I got it in almost ten version and found no option to remove them).

That is why I have been thinking about the following features, that I think could be good looking and more userfriendly:

  • When new credentials are added, if the field URL is filled, try to catch the favicon and use it as an icon. If the website does not have a favicon, or the URL is not given, just leave the icon empty as it does currently.
  • Added a little "refresh" button when editing a credential, which tries to catch the latest favicon (if the icon was a favicon)
  • For the custom icons, just resize them to the size of the icon displayer.
  • Adding a little cross on our custom icons (so that we can remove them easily)

This requires that custom icons ALWAYS have the priority over favicons. I think this is not a huge feature, but it is the kind of details that improves the user experience, even a little (and that design nerdy, like me, will enjoy A LOT).

Thanks for reading this!

Excellent idea.

I was trying to find some information about what the requirements are for adding a decent icon, and I came across this post at the top of the list.

I used to use Roboform, and some aspects I still like, but on my Samsung Galaxy S8+, it slows the whole phone down, as it's a resource hog.

But one feature that I think they got right is the way it captures the favicon from the website that it's saving the log in details from.

I think Enpass could check Roboform's way of doing things, and considering trying something similar. Ok, Roboform doesn't have a icon store like Enpass does, and I do prefer the built in icons, but with the choice to mine favicons.

Hi All,

The Favicon feature has already been added to the Enpass app. Please wait for the coming update v6.1 which will bring it. Thank you.

Currently, the v6.1 is in the internal settings, and a beta for the same will be rolled out soon. I am really sorry as I do not know of an ETA I can provide for you.

Hi All!

I've purchased Enpass PC & Mobile and would also like to know more about adding a few new icons!

I have done a little experimenting and tried converting a png to the 3 sizes that are available within the enpass ITEM's folder.

20x20 40x40 120x120 they are all pngs.

I have copied them into the ITEMS folder "Misc" - I have tried giving them a similar name as the ones already in the folder e.g. 1.com.png, 1, 1.com@2x.png & 1.com@3x.png.

After a little more investigating I had also found 2 json files that contain web address info related to the relevant default pngs within enpass, now I am only assuming that IF one was to

want the Icon associated to the password info entered into enpass i.e. when entering your information,  and wanting a special new icon associated to that info, one would enter such

details into the json file similar to what has already been entered for previous icons i.e. default!

That only leaves one thing left?  where to I place my new icon/png?

 

Due to licensing, Conditions of use etc I will not attempt to edit Enpass to what it was originally designed for - I am not a Programmer nor an expert!

I will leave my comments here for Admin and the like to ponder over and possible include an option that can allow the user to add new icons at their leisure with zero impact on security.

 

Regards

Regarding custom icons, the procedure to add them is very easy.

They are stored within Enpass as 200x200 png files. In earlier versions, you had to convert the Icons to this size. in the meanwhile I noticed, that Enpass can do this by itself. You just have to select a square jpg or png and the upload this file (if the format isn't square, sometimes "strange" results will show up, where e.g. only parts of the icon are shown):

  • Select an entry and go to edit mode.
  • Click on the icon and see the dialogue "choose icon"
  • In the headline of this dialogue you will find a "+" sign on the upper right side.
  • if you click onto the "+" you can choose a file to be uploaded - search the file in your file system and "open" it.
  • Afterwards you will be able to select the new icon in the custom icon section

The Favicon function isn't implemented yet - it was part of some beta versions, but didn't find its way to the product version.
