Enpass allows you to check the history of your passwords

Imagine you’re changing the password on a website. You generate the new password using the built-in Password Generator of Enpass, but you realize that the new password is not accepted for some reason. You could, of course, generate a new one specifying your preferred recipe and mix of alphabets, numbers, and special characters aligned with website’s requirement.

However, when you proceed to try the new one, you are required to enter your old password, which has now been overwritten by this new one you generated. Ouch! The only option for you to get access now is by going through the annoying and time-consuming ‘Forgot Password’ drill. 

Don’t fret, because Enpass has got your back!

Every password you change and the passwords of every newly saved login items get recorded into password history of that particular password field in the Enpass app as well as the password history of Enpass extension. Very cool, right?
You can also see the name of the domains of recently created passwords in the password history of Enpass Extension.
To see the password history, click the Password Generator icon and a pop-up window will appear.

Click on the Show history icon from the window, and it will show the history of last five password changes.


If you’ve changed the password of any item, it also gets recorded in the password history of that particular item, which you can see by clicking the Password History icon from the item’s detail screen. There is no storage limit of password history here.


The Password History feature is available on all Enpass desktop apps – Windows, Mac, and Linux – as well as on mobile apps – Android, iOS, Windows, and BlackBerry.
