Note

If you have enabled sync, the data file encrypted with the new master password will get updated to the cloud during next sync operation. Also, other devices syncing with that cloud will ask for this new password from then on.

Autolock

Autolocking protects your data from unauthorized access by locking the Enpass keychain, even when your device’s privacy has been compromised. The whole behavior of autolocking can be controlled by the following settings:

Lock when Enpass is idle

The default setting is 1 minute, which means that Enpass would be auto-locked if not used for 1 minute.

Quick Unlock

Enpass provides a couple of ways to quickly unlock the app rather than Entering your master password. You can choose any option according to your preference for a quick access.

Touch ID

To use the Touch ID to unlock Enpass, you must have Touch ID enabled on your MacBook Pro and then simply enable the Touch ID from Enpass preferences.

Note

After enabling Touch ID, you just need to enter the master password once you’re freshly starting the App and then you can use your fingerprint to unlock Enpass further until you quit and restart the app again.

Pin Code

This feature lets you quickly unlock Enpass with an alphanumeric PIN rather than entering master password every time when the App gets locked in background. It works only if the App is running in the background, otherwise you’d be prompted to enter the master password again.

  • Click on the checkbox to enable Quick Unlock.
