Getting Started

Enpass is fun to understand and use. Throughout the manual, you will find a few tips, warnings and notes; keep them in mind while using the app.

Prerequisites

The Enpass version 5.6 for Linux has been tested on Ubuntu 12.04 and above, Fedora and Cent OS.

Setting up Enpass

Here are the two possibilities and their relative ways of setting up the app.

As an existing user

If you already use Enpass, you should be having a backup of your data on your system. The welcome screen allows you to directly restore your existing data from local Enpass file on your PC or from a cloud where you synced before or from the Enpass App downloaded from the Mac App Store.

  • On Welcome screen, click on Restore my existing data.

Warning

In case you forget your master password, there is no way that we could recover it for you. Hence, make sure that you keep a copy of it in a safe place.
