Customizing icons

When you add an item, Enpass assigns it a standard (default) icon based on the url contained in the item. Enpass lets you customize the default icons in two ways:

Using website icons

Generally, website icons are small, iconic images (favicons) associated with a particular website which appear in the address bar of the browser.

Enpass can download the website icons of the saved items and replace them with the default icons. They make your items more recognizable, saving time while glancing through the long list for a particular item.

Important

Enpass does not sync website icons across devices; you need to enable them individually on each device.

To enable website icons, follow these steps:

In the main window, click SettingsCustomize → select the Use Website Icons check box → Continue.

    • Use Website Icon (See figure below)

You can also select and use your own icons for each item. These are the steps:

  1. From the main window, open the item for which you want to change the icon.

  2. Click the Edit button and then click the icon of the item.
