Enpass has added attachment support with its latest update, expanding from handling just your passwords. Now the popular password manager will let you securely attach various files you want to keep safe from prying eyes, including things like images of passports and credit cards.

Here's a full look at what's new (via OnMSFT) in version 5.5.1 of Enpass for Windows 10:

  • The attachment support: Yes, you got it right, from now on, you can attach files to Enpass, let it be anything, the snap of your Credit Card, Passport, key files etc., that should not be stored unencrypted to your device can find a secure place inside Enpass keychain.
  • Option to disable update and analytics: We have added an option under Advanced Preferences to restrict Enpass to connect to the Internet for checking of updates and sending analytics. Though we recommend you to not disable the option to check for updates and notification as this is the only way we can convey any important message to you. You still remember, Enpass manages your passwords offline without forcing you to create an account with us and we love serving you anonymously.

There are a couple of caveats with Enpass' implementation here. The company notes that individual file sizes are restricted to 200KB to keep keychain syncing from being bogged down. When you try to upload an image, you'll also get tools to crop, rotate, and rename the images. Bigger images will be automatically compressed as well.

Interested? If so, you can grab the latest Enpass update from the Windows Store now.

  • As with any product that manages sensitive information - you have to trust the product and the company behind it. It's so easy for any company to install a rogue back door. This applies from the smallest operation to the largest. With the proliferation of password managers out there - I think you have to be crazy to pick one without looking at who owns it / controls it and decide if you are happy to put your private stuff in their care.
  • your post needs 1000'nds of likes.
  • Good thing Enpass is designed so you can do it all 100% locally. Enpass does not provide any service for storing the keychain. They give you the option of syncing to other cloud service providers using those service providers' infrastructure. This cloud sync is not required, and you can do all your syncing (If you wish to do any to begin with) locally using the file system on whatever device you're using. You can also turn off all the features that Enpass uses to "phone home" so to speak if you don't trust it. Enpass seems like a solid service to me, and you can use it totally offline if you like. In which case, it's only as compromised by government agencies as whatever operating system you're using to open the app.
  • Nice to see that they listen to community requests and added this feature.
    I've waited for this feature from first moments after purchase, now I hope files that I wanted to store there are less than 200K xD
  • I like the idea of this... Unfortunately, the visa for my upcoming trip is 276KB. D:
  • break it up into 2 pictures
  • I would really like to have an Edge extension. Please Enpass!!! It would be great to be able to comment on this website from Edge too lol!
  • I 'went with' Enpass when looking for a cross platform Password manager. Aside from basic functionality, apps on platforms I use, price, community engagement and responsiveness, a key feature I looked at was whether the company uses their own infrastructure as the sync point, or if they supported 2rd party clouds (e.g. OneDrive, GDrive, etc.) Personally, I have more trust in major brand 3rd party cloud providers than a single app vendor to reliably secure their 'cloud'. This was evidenced recently with LastPass. While you can argue that the data stolen can't be used without Master passwords, etc etc.. the fact remains, they were hacked. Our data is in the hands of bad guys in some form. Anyway, not trying to coerce in any choice of product, just wanted to throw up a key point I looked at that I think is often under played in Pass Vault comparisons.
  • My password manager have this ability for years and without limitations on size.
