Backup and Restore

Anyime you can manually take backup or make Enpass to automatically take backup of Enpass data in encrypted format on your system and also can restore your existing backup files.

Note

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

We suggest you to let the Automatic backup feature enabled (by default which is enabled) in the Enpass settings. Doing this will make Enpass to automatically 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.
