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 5.6.8 requires Windows 7 or above.

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.

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

Note

On Windows PC, if you have upgraded Enpass from any previous version (older than 4.5.0) then on the welcome screen you will see one more option to migrate your data from older version.

Migrating data from Enpass v4 on Win PC

This section is only for those Enpass users on Windows PC who have just upgraded to Enpass 4.5. If so, then on the welcome screen you will see one more option to migrate your data from older version. Choose that and click Continue.
