Backup and Restore

This service lets you take backups of your Enpass data on a PC and restore your existing backup files onto your device. There are two ways of taking backups:

Wireless Network

Make sure that your device and PC are connected to the same wifi and your device’s screen remains in foreground throughout the following process:

  • When started, the Backup and Restore screen shows you an IP address of your local network.

Note

The restored file would replace the pre-existing one in your device.

We suggest that you take regular backups so that data consistency is maintained among all your cross-platform devices. This way unfavorable situations such as, device theft, can be tackled. Also, if you have enabled sync, all your changes would be auto-updated to the cloud.
