Enpass Password Manager Review

Enpass, previously known as WalletX, is a local password manager that has been available since 2011. There is no online web app to log into, and no built-in sync service for you to use to keep secure on your various devices.

The Verdict

Enpass is fraught with bugs, has a general lack of support, and poor product management by the developer. We do not recommend using Enpass at this time.

Some people may prefer to be in charge of their own data for security/privacy reasons, so it's understandable that a service like Enpass exists. Unfortunately, Enpass is probably not a very good choice, for reasons we'll go into below.

The team behind Enpass (Sinew Software Systems Pvt. Ltd.) is based in Gurugram, India. I was unable to find much in the way of employees or information about this company.

It should be noted that the product has had significant numbers of users switch away in recent months due to rocky upgrades from version 5 to version 6. The official Enpass forums are full of users complaining and asking for help with unresolved bugs that prohibit them from moving their data to another service or use the existing service as promised.

At this time, due to the lack of support from the developer, I do not recommend using Enpass. However, I decided to include this review on the site because the product is mentioned often online -- and there aren't any up to date reviews warning users of these issues.

Sync

Enpass is an offline password manager by design, but that doesn't mean you can't use it on multiple systems. It just means that the Enpass team doesn't have an official sync service for use.

This frees you up to use any number of third-party sync services:

  • iCloud
  • Dropbox
  • OneDrive
  • Google Drive
  • WebDAV

You're really just storing a file, so a USB drive works too, but can be inconvenient if you're using a mobile device.

Do note that you're responsible for your own security here, so if your Dropbox account (or wherever you're hosting your Enpass files) is breached, the attacker can access your passwords.

Platform Availability

Enpass is available on on the following desktop operating systems: macOS, Windows 10, Linux. The service also works on Chromebooks.

There are also mobile apps for iOS and Android. First party browser extensions are available for:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Safari
  • Edge
  • Opera
  • Vivaldi

Pricing

Enpass pricing is fairly nonstandard. There's a free version that enables you to store up to 20 items in a single vault. Premium versions are available to remove these limitations.

The app is a one time purchase for $11.99 per platform. If you want to use Enpass on both your iPhone and your MacBook, for example, you'll pay $11.99 x 2 ($23.98). The good news is that it's a one-time payment with no subscription fees -- which in my opinion makes sense, as the app does not have any sync services to maintain.

Conclusion

While the offline and bring your own sync nature of Enpass is interesting, lack of support by the developing team outweighs any benefits gained. I'd recommend choosing another password manager for the foreseeable future.
