Note

If you have enabled sync, the new password for Enpass data would get updated to the cloud during next sync operation. Also, other devices syncing with that cloud will ask for this new password from then on.

Autolocking and Quick Unlock

Autolocking protects your data from unauthorized access by locking the Enpass keychain, even when your device’s privacy has been compromized.

Quick unlock feature namely, PIN Code, saves you from entering your master password every time you want to unlock the app. Users must enable device password to use Quick unlock facility.

The whole behavior of autolocking and quick unlock can be controlled by the following settings:

Lock After

The default setting is 1 minute of inactivity, which means that Enpass would be auto-locked if left unattended for 1 minute.

You can change it to match your comfort.

Lock on Leaving

If the switch is enabled, the app gets locked immediately when sent to background, irrespective of the inactivity-time setting. By default, this switch is turned on.

PIN Code

Master password is set as the default authentication requirement. You can avoid entering your master password altogether by using a four-digit PIN Code.
