One of the marquee features of the latest version of Enpass is Multiple Vaults. This has been one of the most requested features from our users since a while, and we’re delighted that Enpass 6 brings support for the same.
What is Multiple Vaults feature?
All your Enpass items reside in a database that we call as a ‘Vault’. Till now, you had a single Vault, that some of you chose to store locally on your device while others preferred to sync via one of the cloud services that we support.
Now, Multiple Vaults mean you can have more than one database. This allows you to use the same app instance for personal and work credentials or have separate vaults for different clients you may have.
How to set up Multiple Vaults in Enpass?
At the outset, Multiple Vaults is not for everyone. Essentially, Multiple Vaults are useful if one has to share data with others. For an individual, using tags is a better approach for organizing items.
For single database with all your items, you can just stay with the ‘Primary Vault’ that you first set up when you got started with Enpass 6 or the one that you’re migrating from Enpass 5.
But if you like the idea of segregating your Enpass items into different Vaults in diverse scenarios like we discussed, then read on.
To create a new vault, go to Settings > Vaults, tap the ‘+‘ icon, and follow the instructions to create your secondary vault. You can follow the same steps to create another vault, and another one.
There’s no limit to the number of Vaults you may create however each Vault will need to be synchronized with a separate cloud account. Although, by different cloud we mean different accounts, not services. You can have multiple accounts on one service like Dropbox and set up multiple Vaults.
This limitation is to keep your data segregated in different Vaults. If you share one Vault with someone, he or she should not have access to your other Vaults on the same cloud service and, of course, you’d not share details of your primary cloud account with others, would you?
This is a new feature, and we’re always looking for feedback. If you have something to share, drop us a line on Twitter or Facebook. If you’re looking for help, shoot us an email at email@example.com, or better still, engage with the Enpass community on our Forums.
