Note

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.

Auto Locking

Autolocking protects your data from unauthorized access by locking the Enpass keychain, even when your device’s privacy has been compromised. The following settings can control the whole behavior of autolocking:

Lock when main window is closed

If enabled, the Enpass will be locked when minimized by clicking on X button on main windows manager.

You can change it according to your preferences.

Lock when system sleeps

Once enabled, Enpass will automatically get locked everytime your system goes to sleep mode.

Lock when System is idle

Enpass will automatically lock itself after the system is inactive for the entered number of minutes.

PIN

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.

Change PIN
