If Enpass is an offline password manager then why does it connects to Internet and shows network activity?

Indeed Enpass is an offline password manager and saves your data locally in your device and in any case we do not (and we can not) access any of your personal data.

But yes, Enpass does connect to internet with the sole purpose to give best user experience. If you have seen a network activity for Enpass, it could be due to any of following reasons:

  • Cloud Syncing: If you have enabled sync with any of your own cloud accounts, Enpass connects to selected cloud account to check and perform sync operation.
  • Checking for update: Enpass connects (anonymously) to one of our domain (http://rest.sinew.in) which contains the information of latest releases with version numbers for all platforms. It makes the GET query and doesn't send any information there but only the version number.
  • Google and Flurry Analytic: We use Google and Flurry Analytics SDK to constantly improve the App by checking the number of active users per platform. We do not log your master password, key or any of your Enpass data and this practice of using analytics is very safe and you don't need to worry about.

Why we do so? Being offline in nature and having no information of our users (except those who have signed for our Beta program or newsletter) makes it impossible for us to reach you, in case there is some crucial news (may be security related like FREAK Flaw) to share, which might requires for an immediate action by you. That is where this becomes the only medium from where Enpass can pull any such information.

You can disable the participation in analytics from Enpass Advanced settings.
