Tip

Enpass lets you mark the items which you want to exclude from Password audit. the password field of the item.

Identical Passwords

Using the same password in multiple online accounts is a bad practice and puts your accounts at risk. If any one of these accounts is compromised, all you other accounts are at risk. Password Audit finds all such items having identical passwords. You can change them to strong and unique passwords using the built-in password generator of Enpass.

  • To check all the identical passwords in Enpass, go to the sidebar > Password Audit and tap on Identical. You can now see the list containing all the items having matching passwords.
