Everything you want to know about Multiple Vaults in Enpass 6

One of the marquee features of the latest version of Enpass is Multiple Vaults. This has been one of the most requested features from our users since a while, and we’re delighted that Enpass 6 brings support for the same.  

What is Multiple Vaults feature 

All your Enpass items reside in a database that we call as a Vault’. Till now, you had a single Vault, that some of you chose to store locally on your device while others preferred to sync via one of the cloud services that we support 

Now, Multiple Vaults mean you can have more than one database. This allows you to use the same app instance for personal and work credentials or have separate vaults for different clients you may have.  

How to set up Multiple Vaults in Enpass? 

At the outset, Multiple Vaults is not for everyone. Essentially, Multiple Vaults are useful if one has to share data with others. For an individual, using tags is a better approach for organizing items.  

For single database with all your items, you can just stay with the ‘Primary Vault’ that you first set up when you got started with Enpass 6 or the one that you’re migrating from Enpass 5. 

But if you like the idea of segregating your Enpass items into different Vaults in diverse scenarios like we discussed, then read on.  

To create a new vault, go to Settings > Vaults, tap the ‘+‘ icon, and follow the instructions to create your secondary vault. You can follow the same steps to create another vault, and another one.  

There’s no limit to the number of Vaults you may create however each Vault will need to be synchronized with a separate cloud account. Although, by different cloud we mean different accounts, not services. You can have multiple accounts on one service like Dropbox and set up multiple Vaults.  

This limitation is to keep your data segregated in different Vaults. If you share one Vault with someone, he or she should not have access to your other Vaults on the same cloud service and, of course, you’d not share details of your primary cloud account with others, would you? 

Need help? 

This is a new feature, and we’re always looking for feedback. If you have something to share, drop us a line on Twitter or Facebook. If you’re looking for help, shoot us an email at support@enpass.io, or better still, engage with the Enpass community on our Forums.

Would love to have Enpass automatically be ready for Windows hello input (fingerprint) as soon as the application is started or brought back to the background. This way it eliminates the extra click we have to do in order to use our fingerprint.

I don't think I agree on that one. I planned on creating a shared vault for the family with passwords we should all have access to once Enpass 6 came out of beta, and my idea was to sync both my private and this shared vault to my OneDrive. I can then share the wallet file of the shared vault with the other members of my family using the build-in OneDrive sharing functionality. They will then be able to add it to their own OneDrive and changes will be synced between them. (Other cloud providers probably have similar functionality, I'm pretty sure Google Drive does.) This feels like a much cleaner solution (and less of an hassle) than creating a separate Microsoft account just for having one shared wallet file.

you guys should create different folders for each vault we have in a single cloud client, for instance:

folder 1 = vault banks
folder 2 = vaults credit cards

instead of having to open different could accounts, thats just lazy sorry.

waiting for a comment of the company here

As John describes above, this is how it's already done for the webdav connector in enpass 5 (for owncloud/nextcloud).

To connect to the webdav storage we need to specify the specific folder to place the vault file. Therefore it should not be anything holding back to store multiple vaults in the same cloud account.

I am using enpass together with nextcloud, and it would be big drawback for the multiple vault functionality if I have to create a new account for every shared vault.

Hi,

Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately, with Enpass 6 it won't be possible to share the vaults with the OneDrive sharing functionality.

But we are already working on bringing the Folder sync support in Enpass 6 which will allow you to sync multiple vaults with the same cloud account by giving a specific folder path to each vault.

Hi,
can you tell me if this Folder Sync option will be the same as in Enpass 5 where I could add any path for the synchronization (e.g. sync with data present on a server or another PC) ? Do you know when this feature will be released?

Thank you very much.

Hi,

We would like to share that the Microsoft team is working to make simpler APIs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/developer/rest-api/getting-started/aad-oauth#sign-into-onedrive-for-business) for developers to work with OneDrive for business and we do have plans to add this feature but we can't assure you any ETA.

Thanks for your understanding.

Hey!
I am just about to buy enpass5 for a few of my devices. Will the update to enpass6 be included as well? Will it (easily) possible to migrate von 5 to 6 after release?

Hi,

Yes. Enpass 6 will be rolled out as a free update to our existing Enpass 5.

> Multiple vaults is not for everyone

I disagree. Almost everybody should have two vaults - one for work and one for personal use.

That way even if you don't currently share your work vault with anyone, you can if it's ever needed - such as if you're sick and the person filling in for you needs a password - just give them a copy of the vault.

Hi,

"...each Vault will need to be synchronized with a separate cloud account..... This limitation is to keep your data segregated in different Vaults."

This has been discussed already but here is another example:

I have 4 vaults: Private, Work, Clients, Family. And I do have my own NAS server, so I'd like to use Webdav for every vault and no other cloud service.

Hi, the way I see this, this should be already possible, since you specify the URL, User and Password rather than connecting to a service over some shady connect button.

Unfortunately there is no way to test that, since the beta (android 8) crashes before it authenticates to WebDAV, when the app restarts the form is empty. that is reproducable, it always crashes after entering all the credentials and URL.

On the old enpass app the same WebDAV path and credentials do work, so it is definitely no WebDAV error that prevents me from testing the multi vault sync over WebDAV
