Enpass updated for Android Marshmallow with fingerprint support and more

With the release of all new Android M in the Android clan, Enpass is also ready to receive this newbie with open arms. In Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google has added many features including Fingerprint support, permission control, improved performance, user interface and lot more. In correspondence to this we have also updated Enpass to version 4.6.4 to incorporate new features supporting fingerprint unlock with improvements in user interface.


Fingerprint Unlock

Android M has been released worldwide with new Nexus devices  supporting the most fascinating Nexus Imprint. Fingerprint support is so tightly integrated now that you can buy stuff from the Google Play Store or use Android Pay just with a touch. Furthermore you can use fingerprints to unlock Enpass too without typing long master password everytime.  So on a device with Fingerprint sensor, you will see a setting to enable unlock using fingerprints under Enpass settings. Just enable that and you're ready. Although the same feature was already there in Enpass for Samsung devices like Note 4 but that was using OEM provided APIs. This time its by native Android APIs on Android 6.0 devices.

More on Fingerprints

But there's one thing you need to keep in mind that unlike iOS you have to type the master password every time when Enpass is freshly started or restarted, either by you or OS. 

Soon by end of this month we will update Enpass to remember unlocking by Fingerprint always using the Android keystore (introduced in Android 6.0). Just stay connected with us as there is more to come on this.

All new User Interface

Meet the whole new Avatar of Enpass. Its more refreshing with material theme, colorful with rounded icons just like desktop version. Feel it!

We believe that you will definitely like new update. As always we'd love to hear your thoughts. Leave your comment here and on Twitter or on Facebook.

Great work. Very impressed with the turnaround time. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming update that makes the fingerprint reader work after a reboot.

Awesome, though still waiting for app/keyboard integration.

Dear Bob the development of keyboard integration has been completed and it's under QA phase. Once it's over we will release it on Play Store.

I'd like to switch to enpass but I don't see any declaration regarding regular security audits, which would be a must before I would use the service.

Dear Aaron, what kind of security audit declaration are you asking and want?

Nice, thank you. But I'm not sure why icons have to be rounded now. Is it a new fashion? It surely leaves less room for icon content. The best would be if you gave us a switch in preferences.
