Enpass

Enpass is an Android application that is purely designed to store your passwords and important information. And it offers a couple of main attractions — firstly it’s a real beauty on the eye and super easy to use, and secondly, it allows for two cloud syncing options. As well as a backup and restore feature using the web, you can also sync your passwords with Dropbox. Of course, you don't have to sync at all, but bear in mind that if you were change to a new Android device you would lose your saved information.

Once you launch the application you will need to create a password to enable you to access the app each time. Within the settings you can alter the auto-lock time - just in case you leave your phone unattended.

EnpassCreating a new entry is simple, just tap the "+" tab at the top of the display. You'll then be prompted to select from a category. These range from credit cards to travel. Within each are sub-categories, so for example if you were going to enter a computer password you would then have the choice of choosing from a further eight options. Once you fill in the boxes and press save the entry will be created -— simple! 

The main menu has shortcuts to not only the different categories, but also your favorites, folders and all items. The user interface closely follows Google's Android design guidelines, which means for easy and friendly navigation. 

Enpass is cross-platform, so if you use mobile devices across different platforms you'll be able to access all your saved passwords there too. There's a desktop version of the app for both PC and Mac too, for easy access on the big screen.

Enpass is free to download, but for the full range of features you can upgrade from within the app for the price of $4.99. I've been using it for some months and in my opinion the cost is a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Looks a lot like Safe In Cloud, the solution I just switched to (coming from KeePassDroid). Advantage of Safe In Cloud is that you have more options to sync your data (Dropbox, Google Drive and SkyDrive).

Since you're familiar with KeePass, you could try Keepass2Android which has those features built-in.

I have looked at it. But I don't like the password input method via a purpose build keyboard. I understand that it prevents bad apps from copying passwords/usernames from my clipboard; but switching keyboards back and forth to get access to my passwords is to much of a hassle.

mercado79 says:

That's just an option. You can just disable the alternate keyboard method if you prefer. Keepass, IMHO, is the way to go. Free, open-source, and available on all platforms I've tried (Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS). Easy.

Ommadawn says:

Safe in Cloud is my wallet app of choice as well. It syncs well with my phone, tablet and windows desktop, and has a large choice of cloud sync options.

I purchased the app yesterday, so far so good! I emailed the developers yesterday as well and This is what they said..........

Dear Lamarcus,

Thanks for using Enpass and writing to us. We have already considered this feature in our road map for future updates. Currently we are working on Custom field support and it will be available in next version of Enpass.

After that we will start working to add Google drive, SkyDrive and Box support and will be available in next to next update (after custom field version)

Please feel free to contact us for any queries.
Best regards

One does not simply trust your passwords to the cloud without a higher risk of hacking.

Cloud sync is just an option. You can use Enpass without any cloud or internet connection and keep backup of data via Backup & Restore service.

Thanks Enpass, but I'll...pass on that.

the big print giveth, the small print taketh

It would have to be noticeably better than 1Password 4 for me to consider switching. Will look into though.

My passwords will not be stored in the ☁! Don't trust anyone of them

Az Syndicate says:

I am also a LastPass fan. So I doubt I will switch.

For all of you concerned about storing your info in the cloud, I had the same concern. Until I read some very good security articles saying that these password managers do a better job than 99% of the people on the internet. They encourage unique hard to guess passwords for each internet site, something is impossible for 99% of the internet users to try and do on their own without writing down the passwords. Second, they help protect against Key loggers because most of them will fill in passwords if you click the box, thus eliminating the user typing the password in. Third they remove the passwords from being stored locally (which are easy to obtain if your computer is compromised) with your browser settings that most users employee. Lastly they passwords stored online are heavily encrypted and allow for all trusted devices to be immediately forced to re-synched.

SO I get the concern, and some of the people on this site can do what 99% of other can't. But I just wanted people to understand the a strong tool that is well thought out can be a lot safer than what most people do, use the same soft password for every internet site. The password tools encourage better password behavior.

Justin Stepp says:

Yeah thats great and all until they get hacked or a disgruntled employee takes a handful of passwords just to muck things up.

No one is safe from getting hacked right now and I think looking at number of big news articles this past year proves that. Putting all your passwords in one place is like putting all your money in one stock.

Az Syndicate says:

I agree, nothing is safe. But I suggest you look at how services like Lastpass and others help protect your examples from exposing their clients.

Lastpass supports multifactor authentication for example and you can set it up to notify you if access is attempted from unknown IP/devices

So I get it, I probably sound like a marketing tool for lastpass, please go check out the others. I also understand their is Risk with putting passwords on the cloud. For example I didn't do online banking for the longest time because I understood the security risk once I allow internet access to my financial data. What I have personally found, Password managers that have a good plan around keeping my data safe and keeping me informed actually help me and many others do a better job with online security.

And just to be honest, Lastpass did get compromised blogs(dot)computerworld(dot)com/18265/four_things_you_should_know_about_lastpass
To me it looks like Lastpass had a plan in place to reduce the risk if this were to hapen and has a plan in place to mitigate the risk.

and just to show everyone I am not a Lastpass marketing tool

Their is an article that chooses a lastpass competitor.

Veridor says:

Lastpass uses pre-egress encryption, though. The passwords and other info are encrypted client-side, so Lastpass can't decrypt your data, even if they wanted to. Also, Lastpass has Yubikey and Google Authenticator multi-factor support.

Vikram Dabas says:

We are concerned about our valuable customer's data as Enpass save their credentials.
Your data saved on device is always encrypted with globally accepted & tested AES 256 encryption. The only way to decrypt it is your master password, that only yourself knows.

We do not store your data on our servers. In case if you have synced your data with Cloud then a copy of encrypted file is saved on respective cloud. So, even if cloud service security is compromised, your data is still not accessible without your master password.

Your data always stays encrypted in Device, Desktop or Cloud and any kind of decryption is done locally on the device by Enpass.

For more details on security, please visit "Safety" section on our Website.

Paull Smith says:

I just searched LastPass on Mac Store but didn't find the app there. I also visited their website but what I found was extensions only. Some of them were only for trial versions.

After that I thought of trying Enpass. I downloaded its trial version on my Nexus 4 and MacBook. The more I use it the better it seemed and I sold to it with in 5 mins.

Enpass browser makes me feel more safe and secure while browsing and love autofill feature. Also enjoying its Free Desktop version as it saves my money.

As long as the NSA ain't spyin' on my passwords, I might consider using one of those.

hodan says:

Don't worry. They're not.

sarumont says:

Thanks to neural implants you didn't know you had, the NSA knows your passwords before you think of them. :)

DataHawg says:

Last Pass is my go to password manager and I would not switch . It does not store anything in the cloud, not even your master Last Pass password. It is encrypted at the browser level so even if Last Pass is hacked your master can't be compromised. Steve Gibson of Security Now closely examined Last Pass and other password managers and he said it's rock solid at every level. That's all I need to know

Az Syndicate says:

So if you read above, I am advocating lastpass and simular tools pretty hard. However I think it is incorrect to say that it does not store anything in the cloud. It has to have something on servers on the internet, that is how I can use Lastpass on my phone to get access to my passwords I use on my computers.

Veridor says:

Lastpass indeed does store your info, but they use TNO (trust no one) encryption. As the comment above indicates, all the encryption is done client-side, before it goes out on the wire. That way, Lastpass never gets the encryption key. Even if their servers were seized, all they'd get is encrypted blobs of information.

jdbii says:

Last Pass is pretty darn handy. I'm not sure if any competitor could offer something more compelling, but I suppose if I had to pay $5 bucks once, rather than $15 a year, I might consider it.

Vikram Dabas says:

Enpass is charging $4.99 only per platform for Lifetime license with no monthly or yearly subscriptions.

Also get the Full featured desktop version of Enpass for both Mac and Windows for Free.

Am I the only one still using RoboForm? Everytime I think about switching to something else the hassle keeps me paying my yearly fee...

fldude99 says:

I've used Roboform for a good 5 years and very happy with it

dahiyavinod says:

Enpass is $5 per platform for lifetime license with desktop free. No yearly fees ..

I still use it and love it. I like the fact that I can sync my android to my pc to my usb stick at will.

The ONLY concern I have with RoboForm, is should they go belly up.. getting the passwords out into something else is a pain. (We would still have our local USB sticks and device database of course).

The best part of RoboForm for me has been the integration with browsers both on Android and the PC... no mess no fuss when I need a password. (The Identity feature to prefill forms is also nice)

I use this app to store my password to another password manager that has my password to a password protected excel file, which has the password to decrypt my truecrypt file, which has a VM, that has another password protected excel file that is located in a folder that is encrypted using EFS. This file has the rest of my passwords.

I use ewallet. I like that it has a desktop component that I use all the time to access web sites from my PC. Then I can sync with the Android app over the same wifi network only or by USB cable. Nothing goes to the cloud to be hacked. The syncing is a little more manual. I store lots of info in it that I need encrypted but might need access to when traveling even if I don't have wifi - like info about my dad's house, accounts, etc if something should happen to him.

techymarkbo says:

Lastpass seems to be my fave. It syncs with chrome and automatic with extention. In

DataHawg says:

Thanks to the 2 users who corrected me above when I said Last Pass doesn't store anything in the cloud. What I meant to say is they do not know any of your passwords and a disgruntled employee could not steal them

I use "Intuitive Password" password manager. It's completely web-based and compatible with all devices. And also the No.1 Australian password manager.
