This section deals with the security settings of Enpass.
Change Master Password¶
- To change your master password, tap on Change Master Password > Enter Master Password > Enter New Password > Confirm New Password > Done.
If you have enabled sync, the new master password will be updated to the cloud during next sync operation. Also, other devices syncing with that cloud will ask for this new password.
Autolocking protects your data from unauthorized access by locking the Enpass keychain, even when your device’s privacy has been compromised.
By default, you are supposed to enter the master password for unlocking the app. This could be a tedious process, especially when you have to authenticate every autofill activity while autofilling using your master password.
Quick unlock features namely, PIN Code and Touch ID, save you from entering your master password every time you want to open the app. Users must enable device passcode to use Quick unlock facilities.
The following settings can control the whole behavior of autolocking and quick-unlock:
The default setting is 30 Seconds of Inactivity, which means that Enpass auto locks itself if left unattended for 30 Seconds.
You can change it according to your preferences.
Lock on Leaving¶
This feature allows the app to lock itself immediately when sent to background, irrespective of the inactivity-time setting. By default, this feature is enabled.
The master password is set as the default authentication requirement. You can avoid entering your master password altogether by using a 4-10 digit PIN Code.
Once enabled, you’ll be asked to enter the PIN to unlock the app every time. Although, after an unsuccessful attempt, you again have to enter the master password to open the app.
- Tap Change PIN button, enter the new PIN and confirm it. Tap on done, and this will change your PIN.
Enpass supports the built-in Fingerprint sensor. That means you can use your fingerprint instead of passwords to unlock Enpass.
Using Fingerprint has two significant benefits:
- It is quicker than entering a password.
- It saves your password from unwanted attention.
While unlocking, after five unsuccessful attempts with Fingerprint, Enpass asks for the master password to proceed.
You cannot use Fingerprint and PIN together.
Enable this setting to conceal all sensitive fields by bullets.
When you copy any data from Enpass, it gets stored on your device’s clipboard. You can choose when to clear this data from the clipboard. By default, it is set to After 30 seconds.
