How to use Enpass on your Apple Watch

First released in April 2015, the Apple Watch has gone on to become arguably the most popular smartwatch and the best-selling fitness wearable globally.

Keeping up the pace with new innovations, Enpass has been supporting the Apple Watch from the early days, making it easier for you to access your frequently needed information without reaching for your iPhone in your pocket, or in your bag.

Setup

To install the Enpass app on the Apple Watch, go to My Watch on your iPhone, scroll down until you see Enpass, tap on Enpass, and enable Show App on Apple Watch.

Next, all you need to do is head to Settings in your Enpass app (iOS 8 or above) and toggle the Enable Apple Watch setting for the Apple Watch. Note that you cannot use Enpass on your Apple Watch without enabling the passcode for your device.

Security

Your Apple Watch only works through the paired iPhone. It communicates securely with that device over Bluetooth using the Apple Watchkit. All your Enpass data is stored on your iPhone, and the Apple Watch fetches it each time over Bluetooth. This way, even if your Apple Watch gets stolen, Enpass will stop working when its out of range.

You can add specific items to be stored on your Apple Watch if you wish. To add items to your Apple Watch, open the details screen of the item and then tap Add to Watch. All the items you’ve added to your Watch can be reviewed from Settings > Apple Watch.

It’s important to remember that these shared items are not as secure as rest of your items as they are not protected by your master password. We strongly recommend creating a PIN to unlock the Enpass app on your Apple Watch for additional safety.
