Enpass for Chromebooks

Enpass is totally integrated with the Chrome Operating System running on Chromebooks. The same Enpass App for Android also works with those Chromebooks which supports the Apps downloaded from Google Play Store. The process of setting up the App on Chromebook is also the same as on Android devices.

By the end of this section you would be able to use the Enpass in Chromebooks in a seamless manner and do the autofilling with ease.

Autofilling in Chromebooks

Enpass lets you autofill the login and credit card details in Chromebooks using its uniquely designed browser extension for Chrome browser, named Enpass Connector for Chromebook. Enpass Connector is different from the other Chrome browser extensions used in desktops for Chrome browser, and it only works with the Chrome Browser in supported Chromebooks.

Note

There are two types of Enpass browser Extensions available for Chrome browser on Google Web Store, one is for Chrome on Desktops and the other one is Enpass Connector for Chrome on Chromebooks.

Note

Enpass Connector service is a web-server that runs on the displayed IP address and allows the extension to fetch data from the keychain.

Using Enpass Connector

While browsing, Enpass Connector does a lot of operations like Autofilling logins and credit cards, updating and saving new logins etc; thus giving a smooth browsing experience in an easy way.

Autofilling Logins

Logins forms are detected by the extension on the fly and the desired information is fetched securely from Enpass Keychain.

  • Click on the browser extension icon in the browser, when you reach a login page.

Saving New Logins

  • Click on Yes to save the login and continue.

  • Custom created field-names.
  • Notes.
