The Curious Case of the Enpass Extension for Microsoft Edge

At Enpass we’ve been in quite a conundrum since last few weeks, and thought we’ll share it with the people who matter – our users.  

We released a preview extension for Microsoft Edge for Enpass sometime back, and have had quite an enthusiastic response from the community (Thank you!). Some in the media patted us on our backs – it was another win after the much appreciated Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app. 

We were planning to release the Enpass browser extension for Edge in stable version 5.3, but sometimes, things don’t work out the way you’ve planned. And that’s what compels us to write this post stating that Edge extension of Enpass will stay in Beta due to couple of issues.

Lets step back for a moment, though. Each feature that we bring to different editions of the Enpass app are aimed at adding to the convenience of the users and improving the user experience. Under the hood, as a sacred rule, everything should work in a way to maintain the sanctity and security of user data.

Missing APIs in UWP

Since Enpass is an offline password manager, it requires some sort of local communication channel with the Edge extension to share data for autofilling. The connection is generally through localhost web-socket.  

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official APIs to connect Edge extension with Enpass app installed on same machine.  

Manual workaround and risks involved

Of course, that roadblock didn’t deter our developers. As a workaround solution for the beta release, we enabled the LoopbackExemption for Edge browser to let it connect our traditional Enpass desktop app. Following is the command being used to disable Edge loopback isolation: 

CheckNetIsolation LoopbackExempt -a -n="Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe"

As per Microsoft it reduces security, and can make Edge vulnerable.  We want you to be aware of all possible risks involved with using Enpass extension for Edge, and they are being discussed here in our forums.

Not listed on Windows Store

Since the Enpass extension is not available on Windows Store as yet, you need to install it by enabling Developer mode in Edge and use the Load Extension option. Though we’ve requested Microsoft to let us submit the Edge extension on Windows Store, yet we aren’t sure how much time it will take for legit listing of the Enpass extension on the Store.  

We’re also not sure if Microsoft would allow the extension in its current form, and maybe make us wait till the company provides appropriate APIs for communication between Edge extension and the UWP app.

What happens to the Beta?

The Edge extension still remains a part of the beta experience, and will be updated on a regular basis till we get an appropriate and mainstream solution to the above issue.  

To get the Beta version 5.3.1, please have a look here to understand the associated risks, and don't forget to join our Beta program to get regular beta updates.

Our appeal to Microsoft and the Windows developer community

It’s our humble request to Microsoft to provide an API to allow Edge extensions to communicate with a UWP App. We explored if we could use Application Services APIs, but those are not available yet for Edge extensions.  

We have also posted this request, with the specifics, here on MSDN Forums. We request the developer community to back us on this, or if you think you have any kind of suggestion, we’d appreciate if you can give us a shout at support@enpass.io.

As it would seem that the UWP to Desktop app route is the issue here, but that (maybe - and I don't understand enough of the detail) UWP to UWP app may be possible, get the UWP option done and into the store whilst you work on solving it for the desktop app... gets you more visible, and I think you'd be the first UWP password manager with a plugin for Edge :-). Also looks like people are engaging in the discussion on MSDN with ideas.

And I really appreciate that you are so open about this - it makes it much easier for users to understand why things are the way they are, and also does give a specific use case to Microsoft as to why they should bring this sort of capability to the Edge Extensions.

Keep up the GREAT work!

Why don't you release the Edge extension exclusively for those who sync their data to OneDrive and other services?

That would solve the problem, right?

Is it not possible to connect the edge extension to OneDrive/Other cloud storage where data is synced and for that Edge extension to work with this cloud data independently instead of relying on an installed app?

Enpass Team 1 year, 11 months ago

Hi All,

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions.

We have already given it a thought. The problem is that Edge extension can only run javascript, no native code support yet. SQLCipher, the opensource encryption engine, is a native library only. So, we won't be able to decrypt the Enpass data fetched from OneDrive.

Reply

Bipin Paul 1 year, 11 months ago

So , we have to wait till the API is provide by the Microsoft.
or is there any plan for alternative solution ?

LastPass is a ONLINE PW-Manager. The extension is completely independent. Enpass is a local PW-Manager, the extensions needs to grab the data itself and decrypt it or connect to the Win32 Program. Both not possible.

Reply

Jane 1 year, 11 months ago

I'm not sure that is really a difference here. Lastpass says that they only decrypt locally as well.
I think the difference is that Enpass is using an open source encryption engine, and I guess LastPass must be decrypting in javascript, assuming the "decrypt locally" comment applies to their extension as well.

Yea lastpass is online, but offline too budy, and this is work from 2 month in edge browser. Enpass have problem with developers not API. I drop enpass because how much time i must wait for essential function?, lastpass have ready plugin before edge officially support extension's.... Enpass have all time problem.... No comment. I back to lastpass on edge lastpass is realu great, when enpass do something with developers maybe back.

AFAIK with LastPass in Edge, you can only store locally AFTER you have stored everything in the cloud?
The whole idea of storing locally is exactly to do only that.
I am one of those paranoid nerds who refuse to store anything personal in any cloud.
I will never upload 100s of passwords to any cloud.
Passwords stays local only, at least for me, and until a PW manager can guarantee that it's app will work with only local storage for the Edge browser usage - I will not use Edge with a PW manager.

Reply

Barry Gervin 1 year, 11 months ago

It may be counter to your strategic direction, but why not create a cloud online API that sits on top of a users OneDrive storage? The Edge extension would call that service, off-device, to provide the necessary data. You could decrypt the data in your cloud service API.

I suppose you could also proxy the localhost API through sockets as well if you really want to perform the decryption on device (even though the data would then be travelling over SSL).

I appreciate the efforts to remain "local" as it can provide a sense of security to users. Doesn't it seem pedantic to call the service a local PW manager if users are syncing to onedrive? By downloading the risks to individual users (and I suppose Microsoft) to manage the persistence & cross-device sync of credentials, it feels like there would be more risk however to just building your own secure cloud service.

Reply

JeffB 1 year, 11 months ago

One of the most important distinctions for Enpass is its local processing approach. It only needs local machine access, and no discrete data is exchanged outside the local machine. The data store can be sync'd to a cloud storage location, but it is a transfer of an encrypted file; and the sync process is a user choice.

This local only solution is one of the most attractive aspects of Enpass and will keep me a loyal customer.

Wondering where this is in the process. LastPass has the ability to put their extension into Edge. Is there going to be one available soon?

Reply

Labelle 1 year, 8 months ago

Again, LastPass can do that because they can download the encrypted database stored ONLINE and decrypt it.
Enpass is relying on a local database.
1Password is using the same principle and this is why they are facing the same issue as Enpass for Edge.

Some of the proposals here to make Enpass optionaly working as LastPass are good. But the way LastPass operate (the password manager provider is the one hosting your database) is the very reason why some users prefer 1Password or Enpass to LastPass.

If you are fine with this security risk, LastPass is great.

Hi Jesse,

Thanks a lot for sharing the information.

Although Microsoft has mentioned the list of APIs that support the development of the extension for the UWP apps, but unfortunately, the list still lacks the APIs that Enpass requires to connect Edge extension with Enpass app. So we have to wait further, till Microsoft provides them.

Till then, please co-operate and bear with us.

Joe 1 year, 8 months ago

Hey guys, I love Enpass and really hope this works out eventually. What about instead of connecting the extension to a UWP app, having the extension connect to OneDrive or DropBox and access the Enpass data file via that route? I haven't explored OneDrive or DropBox API's, but just thought it might be worth a look.

Reply

David 1 year, 7 months ago

This may be a silly idea, but what about running a local server instance for Enpass that can communicate with Edge? If there's a security risk, would it be possible to somehow tokenize the passwords on the local server? Not an easy problem to solve given that security is paramount. Even though it's taking some effort and the solution hasn't been developed, I love Enpass!

Reply

jesse bruffett 1 year, 7 months ago

1password announced that with the API's in the current insider build they are able to have a working browser extension so it should be reasonable to assume that enpass should be able to use the same API's and make one as well. just and FYI there is a solution in the pipeline for one of your biggest competitors and hopefully for enpass as well.

Can you confirm whether the API required to enable the extension has made it into the Creators Update or whether it will have to wait until the next release of Windows 10 in 6 to 9 months?

Reply

Joe 1 year, 5 months ago

Lenovo uses a utility they call "Lenovo System Interface Foundation." Basically they coded a Win32 app that facilitates communication between desktop apps and UWP apps.

It's not ideal, of course, but maybe it would be a work around that would allow the Enpass extension to come out of beta. Then maybe the "We've turned off extensions from unknown sources..." message could be avoided in Edge.

Hi Folks!

I appreciate your continued patience and here is an update on the Enpass extension for Edge browser.

The integration of Enpass with Microsoft Edge has gone not so smooth as we thought initially. There are still some rough edges which are preventing us from the release. Thanks to new native messaging support in Edge browser through which we are able to communicate with it. But still it's not mature enough and lacks some required APIs which hinders us to provide a smooth experience. We are in continuous contact with the Microsoft team and soon will provide access to internal Beta via Store to selected customers. Till then please wait and bear with us.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

Afterward, we had a word with the Microsoft team and found a solution for this. Now we are working on it and will try to release the Beta version asap.

I really like enpass! I enjoy it every day, that's why I am so excited for the new extension! But why is it not possible to tell us true ETAs? You hyped me and others with this "next week" and "there's a surprise coming in" .. If you can't guarantee "next week" then don't say it, say "two weeks" if one week is not to 100% enough time.

Please speak with us, where is the extension and why isn't it online in the store? I am still very hyped and I want to use enpass perfectly on my PC :)

There is always 'next week'

Sure, there's always next week! Or next month or next year even. In short: if their software were as reliable as their word, we'd all know what to do...

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me this many times shame on me. I believe that one of the key factors in the selection of software, especially something as sensitive as password management, is trust. Sadly this does not seem to be possible here.

He actually said 'the next week'. That doesn't mean 7 days, it means somewhere between next Monday and next Sunday. Sunday hasn't passed yet, so he actually didn't break his promise.

Yes, that is great news (seems just few more days, hopefully...)! It's just that I really like the fact that some blog/journalist somewhere somehow gets complete information including screenshots and background. And we, loyal fans who are eagerly tracking the progress, get nothing. But it is what it is I guess.

But this is normal.. Enpass wants to get published into blogs / news pages.. with "exclusive" infos you can do this better.

I know how this works. I only feel that in this specific case and given what happened it just seems like a big slap in face. But it is just me...

You'll need the new Bridge app:

Hello guys!

Thanks to all of you for the enormous patience to stay with us with the long tail of comments. We understand how difficult it would have been for you waiting for Enpass's Edge extension from more than a year. But we all here at Enpass thank you for your comments here and every where else which motivated us to get it done, otherwise we would not have taken courage to go off the course to make a bridged app for Enpass extension for Edge.

With love,
Enpass team

I'm sorry but this is not a solution. It's a huge step back. We've spent money to buy the app and mow you are forcing us to use the outdated bridged app to be able to use the extension? Very disappointing. The only reason i chose enpass was Windows Hello.

I can only agree. This is not really the solution we was hoping for...

The bridge mode traditional windows programm is alright as long as it gets updated, but it seems like you abandonned it....so what was the purpose of all this?

Also there has been no word about windows hello anymore. Would be nice to at least have a statement about it.

What about Chrome? I downloaded the free version from the windows store that said it was "Full Featured" however I quickly found out that didn't mean it had the Windows Hello feature. The free version has the option to enable browser connection in the settings and I was able to get the extension for Chrome. But yah the only thing about this program that interested me was the windows hello feature which I was assuming was similar to my iPhone X when I go to a website it does facial recognition to autolog me in. Well I figured the new feature must only be available for purchase. SO I purchased the $10 version on the window store and set it up with hello only my browser extension will not connect to it. Is what I'm trying to do simply not possible? or is this a future feature or am I doing something wrong. I want to be able to browse the web with Chrome and when I need to log into a website I want it to do it by using facial recognition preferably through windows hello as it's already set up.
Thank you!

Hi,

Yes, you're right that Enpass bridged app doesn't support Windows Hello. We're working on it but at the moment we don't have anything concrete to say on this. Also, we would like to share that we've already integrated Windows Hello in the Windows Store Bridged app back in December 2017. But the APIs required for Hello integration doesn't work great with the Bridged apps and it doesn't offer the smooth user experience, required for an official release. Although, we are in talks with the Microsoft team to make it better and waiting for their support. Till then we appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

Any new progress on the Windows Store version of Edge, I just installed and paid for it thinking I could use Enpass with Hello on Edge. I had the standalone Enpass installed and it works with Edge no problem. Just not the Windows Store Version, and its confusing in the store since there are two versions of Enpass.
