The first beta for Enpass 6 is here – our biggest ever upgrade!

With millions of happy users across the globe using Enpass across the platforms on desktop and mobile, the road to Enpass 6, our latest version, wasn’t easy.

After the heartening success and huge adoption of Enpass 5, the biggest demand from our users was the ability to support multiple vaults. We weren’t sure since this meant that we had to rearchitect the app from the ground up.

But well, we did.

Last year, we embarked on the journey of Enpass 6 to make it our biggest release ever. We were at a team offsite trekking in the Himalayas, and after a long day of hiking, sitting around the bonfire in our camp, we decided that once we’re back at our office, we’ll go ahead and develop the new architecture… our new summit. The spirit of the hills, the high of the long trek we had managed, and the want of a new challenge made us take the plunge. Throughout the development cycle, we referred to Enpass 6 as the Himalayan Edition as an ode to how it came about.

And here we are, after scaling that summit!

What’s new in Enpass 6

Here is the list of some of the most important features that we've incorporated in Enpass 6. There are still loads of other features and improvements you'll come across while testing the Beta. We would appreciate if you can share your feedback with us to further improve Enpass 6 before the final release. Here we go.

All new Design

There’s an all-new UI to start with, which also comes Dark Theme for all platforms. Yes, finally!

Multiple Vaults

Enpass 6 brings support for multiple vaults – so you could use the same app instance for personal and work credentials or a separate vault for different clients you may have. Each of your vaults requires a different cloud account to sync with.

But that’s not all! A new version means a bunch of behind-the-scenes improvements and a host of new features.

The new Enpass Assistant in your command

The erstwhile Enpass Helper utility is now Enpass Assistant. Unlike the Enpass Helper, the new Enpass Assistant runs as a single process with the main app for better memory management and allows you to quickly access your items or edit them from within your browser. There’s also Multi-fields Autofilling which will enable autofill on the web-pages having more than two fields to log in.

Enhanced Customization

Enpass 6 also brings Custom Categories and Templates, and now allows you to define your own categories and templates under the Customize section in the settings. Also, as was much requested by our users, you can add custom icons while adding a new item.

Securely share your items

The latest version brings secured sharing allowing you to include the attachments with the item and also allow you to encrypt the entire item with a passphrase before sharing it with anyone.

Trash and Archive

There’s also the new Trash and Archive paradigm. All the items you delete in Enpass will be saved in the Trash, allowing you to recover the accidentally deleted items. You can also archive the items which are no longer in use, and you don't want them to appear in search results.

Windows Hello and Keyfile

For authentication, you can now additionally use a Keyfile with the master password and on Windows 10 devices, Enpass 6 also supports Windows Hello to log in.

Password Autofill

With the implementation of new AutoFill API provided by Apple in iOS 12 (Beta), in Enpass, you will see how smooth and easy have become entering Logins and details to your desired apps. You just need to turn on the Password Autofill from Settings> Passwords & Accounts > AutoFill Passwords and turn on the AutoFill Passwords. Also, make sure you select the Enpass from the provided options to allow autofilling in the third-party apps.

Siri Shortcuts

The latest version will now allow you to command Siri, to open any item in Enpass. For that, you just have to create a Siri Shortcut from item > Add to Siri > set command and done.
So next time when you need to peek into any item, just say the word and you'll be in.

Like what you see? Here’s what you need to know to try out the Enpass 6 beta.

Enpass 6 Beta for Windows

Note that Enpass 6 will be installed as a separate, parallel application that will not interfere with your existing Enpass installation.

Also, since Enpass 6 is based on a new architecture, it will only sync with Enpass 6, and not with previous versions. So, to test the sync functionality, you’d need to install the Enpass 6 beta on your other devices as well. 

The beta for Windows will work only with the Chrome browser extension, although the subsequent beta versions will work with all our browser extensions.

To check out the Enpass 6 beta for Windows, click here.
 
The sole purpose of this beta is to collect your initial feedback and to give you a glimpse of what we are working on. So please do tell us how you feel about this beta here on our forums for desktop beta and help us in improving Enpass before its final release.

Enpass 6 Beta for Android

What happened to you gradually migrating to UWP from the current Win32 app?

That's what you promised ~12mths back; you abandoned your other UWP app, & promised the W32 program would slowly become a true UWP app!

Reply

Enpass Team 6 months, 1 week ago

Hello. Please have a look at this https://www.enpass.io/blog/enpass-for-windows-which-version-should-i-use/
Where we have mentioned, "The UWP app will be available on the Windows Store until our next major update. At that time, the bridged app would have all the functionality of the UWP app along with signature Windows 10 experiences. "
However, we apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Thank you.

Yes I know it's centennial bridged, but the whole point of such bridged apps, is to slowly move to true UWP, not stay as "Desktop/W32"!

"has the same security assurances anyway..."

Hm no, not AFAIK. Bridged Win32 apps have some upsides, like getting auto-updates from the store and whatnot, but they aren't as restricted as true UWP apps when it comes to messing with you system.

That's probably why it's difficult to implement support for browser extensions in the UWP version, but was pretty much no problem for the bridged version of Enpass.

Will you be delivering v6 on Windows 10 Mobile? If not, what happens for those of us still using Windows 10 Mobile devices (which I and some of my family are)? Given that Windows 10 Mobile devices are officially supported until the middle/end of next year, and there are still users out there, then I would hope that you have at least some way for users like us to keep using your product.

Will we be forced to stay on v5 of Enpass so that we have a mobile app to be able to access our secure material, or will there be an update to the Windows 10 Mobile version to make it at least compatible with v6 (even if not full features).

Great support for Windows 10 Mobile was why I moved to Enpass in the first place - it would be a real disappointment if I now have to move off it and migrate to another service because of this update.

I really want to use the new version, but since it is not backwards compatible, I don't think I'm going to risk it just yet. Way too many passwords I can't afford to loose and I need it to work on other platforms as well (Android, iOS at least). I wish the UWP was also being updated, so my Windows Phone would also be able to use the new features, but I suppose that is too much to ask. I love my Windows Phone and only gave up on it because I didn't have a choice, but I still use it for development testing and a few personal tasks from time to time.

I might install it to create a separate store for shared work passwords and maybe testing some of the new features. Still pondering about it.

You need to backup them first from Enpass5 and restore them in Enpass6 when creating a new vault.

Cumbersome to backup from the old version then import that backup to the beta. (Yes, I can understand your—generous—safety concerns.) I will await the new release when, as usual, a simple and painless iCloud will suffice.

Hi, congratulations for Enpass 6 (beta). Multiple Vaults is is a long-awaited and important function! I'm looking forward to the final version :)
But: Is it correct that there is no possibility for folders anymore? That would be a great pity and would be an important/essential function in terms of order/organization. We used these very intensively in Enpass 5.

Reply

Dennis 6 months, 1 week ago

My folders imported as tags. So they just renamed it.
"FolderA/Subfolder" would be "FolderA:Subfolder" as a tag.

Reply

Dirk 6 months, 1 week ago

Well, ok - but regarding clarity/„arrangement“ of hundreds of different passwords for different systems (e.g. at some locations) having only „tags“ is not a good option.
This would destroy our entire „order“. We use this for servers, routers, accounts on many different locations. This is arranged in folders/sub-folders for better overview and structure/readability...

Sean 6 months, 1 week ago

First off, great work here! I'm excited for the release of version 6.

Some quick feedback based on the beta:

- "Each of your vaults requires a different cloud account to sync with." I'm a bit confused by this statement... does this mean if I have a Primary Vault and a Secondary Vault, that I need to use two separate Dropbox accounts to sync them?

- Is it possible to share a synced vault between two users? (i.e. a team/multi-user shared Vault)

- It looks like folders have been removed. Would it be possible to bring them back? I use a hierarchical sub-folder structure that tags won't be suitable for.

- Please bring back the default Blue theme as well ;-) It was a bit easier on the eyes than purple.

Thanks!

Dirk 6 months, 1 week ago

Hi,

regarding the „folder issue“ - i have the same „problem“. Dropping the folder option in the new version would almost be a knockout criterion for us.

So, please leave it in! ;)

Different vaults, each vault has its own sync settings.... In my case, one example, I manage passwords for different customers, each customer has their own server in which the vault will be synchronized. I can have those vaults in my computer and work from any of those vaults to keep them independent from my vault and from each other vault... Awesome!

Thanks for your feedback.
- Each vault in the same device (or user account) can only be synced with a different cloud account. However, in different devices (or user accounts), data between two vaults can be shared using the same cloud account. (1/2)

Hi, Enpass team! Thanks for this update.
Do I understand correctly, that the new version is not based on Qt so we won't have to have QT_BEARER_POLL_TIMEOUT = -1 env variable to avoid high ping when on wifi?

Also, why did you decide to change the color gamut of the app and the icon (I kinda like the current ones a bit more)?

Gabriel 6 months ago

Multiple Vaults with own sync settings, Trash, and Archive; Enpass is now complete! I tried many password managers, but Enpass has a very well implemented way to sync and maintain the vault in the device, then sync, and also make local backups. I use Nextcloud and every device is in sync, that's why I selected Enpass in the first place, I own my data. Now I could switch to a different Vault and in this case I also maintain passwords for customers sites and I can help them right from my computer! I'm not a Software Engineer nor a Developer, but I would like to see some kind of 2FA implementation to open the vault in addition to the password. I have a yubikey and the device is durable and have many options providing 2FA. Yubikey uses a cloud service to authenticate the device, but also can be configured to provide a TOTP code to not depend on the internet which in my case I prefer not to. Maybe a recovery code which the person is responsible to keep in case the yubikey is lost. Again, I'm not a Software Engineer but nowadays passwords can be compromised in ways I can not imagine, and I use Enpass sync over the internet and 2FA for me is a must. Please let me know where to post this feature request... Thanks very much.

Still waiting for Mac version, but based on what I'm reading, I'd like to chime in to say that...

1) I too use hierarchical folders, so tags won't get the job done for me
and
2) I'd also like clarification on the "Each of your vaults requires a different cloud account to sync with" issue. I've been waiting for multiple vaults for a specific use case in which I'd need multiple vaults within my Dropbox. Is that not going to be possible? (Also, it would be helpful if users can choose their own locations for the Enpass folder within their cloud services. Having Enpass at the top level of Dropbox — or whatever cloud folder — is less than ideal.)

And I'll second the request for (eventually) being able to choose a theme. I don't like the purple much either. But that's very low on my list.

You called it "the biggest upgrade ever", i call it the BIGGEST MESS EVER!!!

- Forcing us to use at least 10 Chars at masterpass! WTF!
- Forcing this aggressive and ugly PURPLE, like Microsoft did with OneNote!
- Ugly new Icon
- Font size is 6 (SIX!) TIMES BIGGER then the OS Settings! I AM NOT BLIND!
- White space EVERYWHERE!
- Ridiculous less Input space the Right sidebar (Editbar), but tons of White space everywhere! WTF!
- You still have NO clue what HiDPI screens are! Titles of Input fields doesn't match to there Input field, all stuff is missplacing, to big, to small.
- This crap ALWAYS start at Fullscreen, doesn't remember Window Setting.
- The Right panel that shows the content, has not a single visual delimiter, only tons of charaters, hard to read/find
- Deleted Vaults, ALWAYS apear on next start! WTF!

I know this is a early version, but all enpass versions so far, has such massive UI Problems. So I think, this would also happend in Enpass 6.
Sorry if this crap is the future, than I must switch to another passwordmanager. Bye Bye

Thanks a lot for your valuable review. This means a lot to us and we will do our best to match with your expectations.

Here are our replies to your queries.

- Forcing us to use at least 10 Chars at masterpass! WTF!
10 chars limit is to force the user to think a strong master password; at least long enough to be not guessed easily.

- Forcing this aggressive and ugly PURPLE, like Microsoft did with OneNote!
This color is for Beta version only. The final version will follow the different color scheme.

- Ugly new Icon
What is ugly in the new icon? Do you like the older icon?

- Font size is 6 (SIX!) TIMES BIGGER then the OS Settings! I AM NOT BLIND!
White space EVERYWHERE!
- Ridiculous less Input space the Right sidebar (Editbar), but tons of Whitespace everywhere! WTF!
- You still have NO clue what HiDPI screens are! Titles of Input fields don't match to there Input field, all stuff is missplacing, to big, to small.
- The Right panel that shows the content, has not a single visual delimiter, only tons of charaters, hard to read/find
These are something really weird for us too. Which OS are you using? Could be a HiDPI scaling issue. Please share a screenshot to us at betabugs@enpass.io with a mention to this comment. You can also start a thread at https://discussion.enpass.io/index.php?/forum/30-free-desktop/.

- This crap ALWAYS start at Fullscreen, doesn't remember Window Setting.
This really sounds a bug in Enpass behavior in your system as it works well here in beta too. We are really eager to know more about it and will revert back to you on your email in response to your screenshot.

as a linux user, i'm using the APT repository for updates, using the testing/beta branch
will we automatically get updates using the current beta repository? will it be another package you can install on the same repository (as to not break existing installs) or do we need a separate repo for enpass 6?
or will release it as a snap package or appimage instead?

Great start, those who are negative don't know wat a beta is for, I suppose. If they have comments they should specify in detail what they find wrong, otherwise it's no use to be involved in beta testing.
My 2 cents:
1. the grey overlay on the right that is opened by the hamburger: "Exit" closes the whole app, I find this a bit confusing because I think people (at least me ) suppose to close only the settings
2. I miss the opportunity to specify a keyfile (?)

Good luck I hope to see more coming soon!

Does the new version have WiFi/local network only (no data transferred to the internet/cloud) sync between desktop and mobile versions?

Hi, is there a way to make Windows Hello the default option for unlocking ? I can easily unlock the Enpass with Windows Hello but to do that I have to always press the 'smiley face' first. I would love for it to be the first default option so i do not have to touch mouse when using face or fingerprint recognition.

These are some exciting major improvements to look forward to. However, as I continue to trust Enpass with my most critical secrets, and ponder the feasibility of doing so long-term, I'm concerned. I'm wondering how such forward-thinking enhancements as we see in v6 are financed. I know that Enpass is funded by charging a one-time fee for each mobile platform, and I've happily paid for three of those platforms, but I just don't see how such a model sustains ongoing development.

Is there any plan to offer a subscription-based service? I'm certainly not a fan of services that store your secrets for you, offer recovery mechanisms if you forget your password, and other such security compromises. Offline is definitely better. But, I would like to see that Enpass as a company is financially viable long term, and I don't see how that is possible by relying only on the addition of new clients that pay a small one-time fee. It seems that some kind of pay-as-you-go model is needed.

I can agree to your concern, but at the same time, they don't offer any backend themselves. That must be a huge cost redundancy.

Perhaps there coders also work elsewhere.
It is however, as you say, a risk taken with a smaller company. The fact that the wallet is a custom one and not standardized keepass 2/4 is a drawback for me. I only use enpass nowadays for my 2FAs since I paid for mobile versions and it's hard to find good alternatives that covers all platforms including Android wear. The masterpass for enpass wallet is stored in a keepass derivate

I was waiting this Enpass V6 by very long time due I want to switch from 1Password.
The MAIN problem was the multiple vaults that Enpass didn't have and now... there's another problem, BIG problem:
I've 4 different vaults in 1Password, all synchronized with 1 (ONE) cloud. Enpass requires a different cloud for each vaults, that means I should have 4 (FOUR) clouds.
do you think this is feasible? I think NOT!
Ok, it's a beta, but competitors are running ahead very fast while Enpass seems to still at the stake. Too long time to implement what others already have and when implemented it's bad thinked. Please allow to use 1 only cloud for sync multiple vaults otherwise this funcion is totally useless.
Many thanks!

This is so much true. I may have, and I expect to have, more than one personal vault. I may want to sync just some of them to some of my devices. But surely I do not want, and will not, create a new cloud account for each vault. That is unfeasible and something that should have been questioned soon in the design process. I just hope it'll be fixed before ver.6 is finally released, otherwise multi-vault feature will be useless for me and many other users. Thanks.

Will you have groups/shared passwords?
This allows to keep passwords up to date across several people without having to share them again to everyone if they are updated.

We are waiting for this feature to adopt enpass more broadly across the organization.

It looks like a mobile app with the UI shoehorned to fit in a desktop.
It does not use right-click menus, scrolling is weird and fucked up all through the app, and it does not use the standard menu bar - it puts all actions inside a stupid hamburger menu.
The old app used to do everything right - the new app does everything wrong on desktop.
I will definitely abandon Enpass if it continues in this direction.

Reply

Jim 5 months ago

Okay so I've been testing it for a while now, so here's my feedback.

- Get rid of the janky smooth scrolling.
I want my password manager to be responsive. Not attempting to feel "smooth"

- Less white space
To much white space, I get the app not feeling cluttered and "airy" which is common in today's UI design, but this is just too much. Especially on the right hand part of the window.

- Faster/less animations
I'm ok with the menu being removed and just having the hamburger menu etc, but please making the animations quicker or remove them completely, like I said before. Responsiveness comes first.

- Firefox extension doesn't work at all.
Literally useless at the moment. Just says "Looking for Enpass app", and then nothing. @Firefox 62.0b8

Overall it's a great start, but there's definitely room for improvements. Don't forget what made the current app great. Thanks.

I've just installed the beta (windows desktop version) in order to check out if some things are getting better now. But unfortunately my main concerns with the old version have not been taken account of or improved:
1st
the edit area of notes fields now is very much smaller than before, allthough in view mode there's much more space.
Or am I doing anything wrong?
I don't need the item displayed in the middle section while I'm editing it in the (small) right section of the screen. This is a big waste of space which could be used for editing area.
2nd
there is still no way to format text (e.g. bold, italic, underline, colour). So every text gets extremely confusing.
3rd
a positiv point is that now the tab key can be used to give some kind of structure to the text (like tables)

The one thing keeping me from trying Enpass is that the Windows version does not allow syncing with my Apple devices via iCloud, although iCloud for Windows is installed and working properly on my PC. I am generally distrustful of cloud solutions, with iCloud being the only one I trust at least to a certain extent. So using any other cloud for syncing is not an option. I know from the Enpass forum that I am far from being the only one who has this issue with the program. Will this grave and unnecessary shortcoming finally be addressed in the new version?

Reply

Enpass Team 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Hi,

The recently released Enpass Beta v6.0.0.72 for Windows came with the iCloud support. So please and try again. In case, if you face any issue share your concern at betabugs@enpass.io.

Andrew Macaulay 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Really need to allow the different vaults to synchronise with different accounts on the same cloud service and ideally be able to select a custom folder for the vault to be synchronised to - maybe keeping the app preferences (with vault locations) stored in a fixed location on in each connected cloud account.

For example, I would like to have the flexibility to have a personal vault stored in my personal OneDrive account, a shared vault synchronised through a shared folder in my personal OneDrive, and a "family" vault stored in our shared family OneDrive account. And for OneDrive, you could read ANY of the cloud providers.

Also, when setting up the cloud sync providers, it would be far better to do this through the app starting the logon process (and wrapping the web interaction) rather than just opening the default browser, as this will often have a remembered connection to the cloud provider, making selecting another account difficult.

I also am frustrated by the 10 character restriction. a simple word based password can be longer than that, for example your password could be "enpass.io", or mine could be "AnthonyGraham" - a whopping 13 characters , or a better password could be "%gL684i9" only 8 characters it's not for enpass to decide, we are responsible, by all means make recommendations but don't enforce rules that don't truly help.

Reply

Enpass Team 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Hi,

Thanks a lot for your comment and we appreciate your valuable feedback.
We would like to share that many users that are new to password manager apps set a small master password for their database and since Enpass encrypts all your database with the Master Password and using a short password puts their database on risks. So this ten characters master password limitation helps them to choose a secure password for the database.
Also, for the advanced users, Enpass provides them with an option to use a Keyfile with their desired length of Master Password.

Reply

Anthony Graham 4 months, 2 weeks ago

I understand the concern, but you could educate people on that by offering a warning "Are you sure... too short... weak encryption..." then people who didn't know would get told, and those of us who create slightly shorter but complex passwords would still have a way to do this.

I'm using 1password currently (since I went mac only - previously was using enpass) and they've released a new version, and as I've started using windows again, that means I either need to switch back to enpass (6 - I need iCloud on windows), or pay around £100 for the windows + macos versions of 1p. This one thing is making me seriously consider paying instead of returning to enpass, which would not cost at all.

Reply

Emmanuel 4 months, 2 weeks ago

Hi Anthony, I actually disagree with you entirely... I know what you are saying but the problem is users need help in spite of themselves and their habits...

I actually think 10 character restriction is NOT strict enough and/or should be accompanied by other security measures [2 factor or other solutions]... the reality is if you do some research on password management/protection you will see that anything less today then 15 characters is not safe enough to protect important information.

And btw as much as you might so AnthonyGraham is safer than %gL684i9 from a purely crunching standpoint [%gL684i9 is breakable in under 2 minutes] - I do realize that it is probably your name and THAT small fact precludes it from being a good password but that's a different factor - one that Enpass might consider in the future as well.

A shorter random password might be "better" in the case of a dictionary attack, but length (and size of character set) rules when it comes to brute force attacks. Research "password entropy" for additional details.

I decided to test the latest 6.0.0.149 beta build, after the previous beta builds was a complete mess.
Guess what? It still is.

- Deleted Vaults still apears on next enpass start, WTF!

- Still no Database "shrink" available. Whats the point having a Vault with several MEGABYTES that have absolute NO CONTENT in it?

- The UI is still an ABSOLUTE MESS. Fonts are still 6x times larger than the systemfont on a 4K HiDPI screen.

- This crap still can't remember the window positions and opens ALLWAYS centered. RIDICULOUS, LEARN TO CODE!

- There is still no separator between every value on content view. Everytime we have to guess witch copy button belongs to witch value on big screens.

- The edit sidebar is still WAY TOO SMALL IN WIDTH, every single inputbox you have to scroll like hell. The note inputbox is also a big joke in size. You really think you are able to enter NOTES in this small box? Common!

- Proxy support is also a complete mess, V5.xx has a well working proxy support and can handle windows system proxy with single sign on, V6 can't even handle system proxys. Enter all proxy informations in the settings doesn't work also.

- The V6.0.0 branch looks to be based on Electron Framework (or similar), and you can not handle it and making all the same mistakes that every other does with such frameworks, what a mess!

Bye Bye!

How dare you to talk to them like that! Your so dumb, they still in beta, of course, it has bugs hello "BETA". Go to LastPass they charge you $24 a year in subscription, plus they got hacked a few years ago. Or better 1Password with their ridiculous subscription prices. Do you understand we get a Free desktop software and free browser extension and cheap mobile app with a Lifetime subscription? Electron Framework really lol go look up the best open source code editor "Visual Studio Code" made by Microsoft with over 65k stars in Github. If you do it better why? don't you code your own Password Manager?

hi, i'm currently a keepassx user, but was in the market for another password manager where i can store locally and share to my own personal cloud if need be for syncing and have multiple vaults for data segregation (ie. personal / work), with no cost. enpass beta seems to accomplish this, but i'm running to errors trying to import my current keepassx database into enpass beta. I get "something went wrong . error - 9998". I also see that enpass is a password manager that I can import from so i imported my keepassx database into enpass 5, but i only see two export options from enpass 5 (csv / txt), while the import option from enpass into enpass 6 is asking for json.

it'd be great to fix both of these options so that I can either import directly from keepassx to enpass 6 or import into enpass 5 and then export into a csv which enpass 6 can then import.

As for now i'll continue using keepassx till the issue is resolved.

Thanks!

Hi.

Thank you for sharing status quo and road map with us.

Please add support for more cloud services, e.g. highly popular and secure MEGA (btw, they have open source apps). Also please add folder sync to each platform, so that we can use any cloud sync via 3rd party apps. And CLI (command line interface) would be very useful. That way we could use Enpass with automation etc. Some of your competition already have CLI clients.

Also, please bring us this immensely useful feature -- https://www.troyhunt.com/were-baking-have-i-been-pwned-into-firefox-and-1password/ -- again, some of your competitors already support it.

And please fix the multi-vault cloud sync feature. I may have, and I expect to have, more than one personal vault. I may want to sync just some of them to some of my devices. But surely I do not want, and will not, create a new cloud account for each vault. That is unfeasible and something that should have been questioned soon in the design process. I just hope it'll be fixed before ver.6 is finally released, otherwise multi-vault feature will be useless for me and many other users. Thanks.

PS: Do not forget about us power users who prefer functionality above "design". I prefer denser, practical UI instead of all empty space, big icons/buttons and small fields. ;-)

Hi,

Thanks a lot for the feedback.

All your valuable suggestions have been noted and shared with the team. Also, Enpass already lets you check your passwords against the list of breached passwords managed by haveibeenpwnd.com. You can do so by right-clicking on the password field and then 'Check if pwned' in the context menu. Also, in the upcoming major release, we have improved it, and instead of checking a single password for pwnage, you can check it for all the passwords saved in your database with a single click.
