It’s finally here… Enpass Universal App for Windows 10

There’s a special vibe at our office today, and the entire Enpass team is excited as we unwrap Enpass 5.0 for Windows 10, our first app on Universal Windows Platform (UWP). The universal app is available for Windows 10 tablets and PCs as well as for Windows 10 Mobile.

We know you too are excited like us. A faux pas last week had our beta app appear in Windows Store for everyone, and before we could roll that back, some of our users downloaded the app and sent us lot of love on Twitter.

So, what’s new in this universal app for Windows 10? Go ahead and read about all the cool new features that we’ve brought for you.

Well, hello, Windows Hello!

Windows Hello, currently in beta, is Microsoft's biometric authentication system for Windows 10. On supported devices (with Iris scanner), it provides a more personal way to login by just looking at your device.

We couldn’t resist not bringing in support for Windows Hello to Enpass UWP app. If you have a Surface Pro 4 or Lumia 950/950 XL, you can quickly unlock the app using Windows Hello. Easy-peasy, Japanesy!

We’re working to make it even better though. At the moment, you will have to enter the master password when you are starting the app fresh or after a reboot. Also, on some Windows Insider builds, while PIN authentication is available, Windows Hello authentication is not available for logging in even when enabled in Enpass settings. We are investigating it, and if it doesn’t work for you, please drop us a line or add details on Enpass Forums.

The all-new refreshed UI

What's new with the UI in Enpass 5.0? Everything! The new universal app incorporates UWP design principles and offer both dark and light themes. A new sidebar, familiar to our Android and iOS users, has been added for easy access to your items and folders. But the Enpass browser extensions are only supported in the traditional Windows desktop app.

Along with these features, there's much more we've packed in this release. See the change-log for more details, and let us know your thoughts about the update in the comments below.

Don't forget to rate Enpass on Windows Store, and stay connected with us on Facebook and Twitter. You can also start a discussion with us, or participate in an existing one, at our new Enpass Forums

Keep using Enpass, and stay secure.
With ❤ from everyone at Enpass

Updated to the new version on W10m and then the app would just close whenever I tried to run it. Submitted the problem to tech support and they released another update that I installed. Now it shows the splash screen before automatically closing when I run the app.

Hope your problem is fixed with the latest update as reported by some other users here https://discussion.enpass.io/index.php?/topic/17-enpass-doesnt-work-after-uwp-update/

Please join the same topic, if the problem persists.

Fortunately, I distrusted this app, and save my logon passwords into a separate paper file because the updated version of Enpass for Windows 10 has a greyed out input field for my Master password. Since the application does not accept input from my keyboard, I cannot access any of my passwords. This would be a disaster if I had trusted this App. Cannot give the Windows 10 version for PC running 65 bit operating system a good review.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. What exactly do you mean by "application doesn't accept the input from keyboard"? We would request you to discuss the issue here in our public Forums at https://discussion.enpass.io

I like the App. I'm no longer satified von 1Password so I think you have a new costomer. I buyed the App and I think I really like Enpass.

Any plans to support browser extensions with the UWP version? I can't tell that it does, and so that leaves me using the other desktop version.
Also, any plans to add form fill (e.g. secure storage for credit cards and related addresses, similar to LastPass)? This (and the ability to attach files to secure notes) is the main thing I'm missing from LastPass.
Keep up the great work... I'm working on converting friends and family from LastPass :-)

Formfill is the killer function Enpass is missing.

This feature is already in our road-map for future releases.

I'm curious about the same thing... Just spent $10 when I could have used "free" desktop software. Please add extension support.

Hi @Ryan,

I can understand your curiosity, but due to sandbox restrictions and unavailability of required APIs to communicate with third party apps, UWP app doesn't support the external browser extensions.


So for now if you want to use browser extensions, please stick with the Enpass Traditional Windows app.

You are advertising with Windows Hello support, but this only works in your UWP app which is useless without browser support.
So this is misleading advertising. A super feature we can't use yet.
If it comes available I am happy to pay 10 bucks for it even for the desktop version.
So you could give the desktop version hello support or give the UWP app browser support, you can sell the hello support feature for 10 bucks so we can use it in both apps ?

Fully agree with Filip. I have just bought the UWP version to learn there is no browser extension support! What a waste of money. Add Windows Hello to the Desktop version please and charge for it if you want. For now I will stick with Lastpass.

If you promise me browser extensions are coming for the Win 10 app I will buy it right now just to support this awesome piece of software. :)

I bought this based on the promise that I could use it with Windows Hello and the Edge browser extension. Disappointed. Please resolve this soon.

The same with me, Hello?! Why I am using a Password Manager, ONLY because of Browsing with it. I have just spent 10 Bucks as well with my new Surface Pro 4 and I am totally disappointed now....

Hey enpass, when are we going to seen iris scanner authentication? The galaxy S8 has it's fingerprint reader at the back of the phone and it's a pain to unlock enpass with that.
Iris is much easier and accurate anyway.

Until the UWP version is fully built out with all the requested features acknowledged as 'coming' in the change blog, a person can always just run *both* the UWP and Desktop versions on a single machine and get the best of both worlds.

Interactively I primarily use the UWP edition because of the biometric support (although the lack of 'copy' shortcuts on a single field click / tap is annoying). The desktop version lingers in the background solely to service the data needs of the browser extensions and I never open it.

There's no reason I can see that a person can't take this approach - both versions are syncing to the same password wallet / repository.
