Enpass introduces Touch ID and Touch Bar support for the new MacBook Pro

We’re hoping you’ve got the latest update of Enpass that brings support for file attachments. This much-requested feature is available for Enpass users across platforms.

However, we’ve got one more thing for our Enpass for Mac users.

Apple recently introduced Touch ID sensor and Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro, and if you’ve got one of those already, you can now enjoy a seamless Enpass experience. The Enpass for Mac v5.5.2 now supports Touch ID and Touch Bar. It’s pretty neat, but don’t take our word for it. Just grab the update, and see for yourself!

Unlock Enpass with just a tap

Every time you need to access the Enpass app, you don’t need to enter the master password. All it takes is just a smooth tap on the Touch ID scanner and whoosh… You're in!

Of course, you need to first enable it from Security preferences of the Enpass app and then on, you just need to enter the master password on starting the app fresh, and then you can use your fingerprint to unlock Enpass each time - until you quit the app and restart it again.
Well, don’t get hassled. We've got step by step instructions in our user-manual here that will help you enable the Touch ID in Enpass.

Experience the Touch Bar

And then there’s the Touch Bar. Using Enpass with this magical thing is a delight!
Need to create an item? Just tap it. Done. Sync the data? Tap it. Done. Generate a strong password? Edit the item? You get the drift… Just tap it and it's done! The Touch Bar support makes working with an item a whole lot easier. 

Try the latest version, and share your experience with us on Twitter at @EnpassApp or on Facebook. For any queries or suggestion, head straight to the Enpass Forums.

Regarding "The Enpass for Mac v5.2 now supports Touch ID and Touch Bar." -- I guess you meant v.5.5.2 .. ?

How come there's still no support on Windows?

My Thinkpad laptop has fingerprint reader for more than 10 years!

Hi Tiago!
Are you using the Windows Desktop program or the UWP Windows app? The UWP version of the app supports fingerprint readers that work with Windows Hello.


Rod 1 year, 4 months ago

The UWP version does not support browser extensions, so we kinda still need that Windows Hello support in desktop version. A developer promised it would be available in the next major release in April (can't include links in comments), but so far no good :\

Oops my mistake. Version 5.5 was released on March, so that "next major release" should mean 5.6.

That's great guys!
BUT: PLEASE do not forget the Windows Phone users. I recently switched from iPhone to Windows Phone and I know I'm not allone switching from iOS to Android or Windows Mobile. THANKS!!

I like these feature, thank you guys so much!But can I set the "unlock with touchID" the default action instead of clicking the finger icon first?

I agree. I don't understand the logic of mandating an extra tap before I can use the fingerprint reader.


MH 7 months, 1 week ago

Yes, I agree. And it would be awesome if it would also be possible to unlock enpass with touch id when starting the app fresh.
