Enpass now gives you a secure place to attach files


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.
