What you need to know
- Enpass has a new update that brings breach monitoring to the service.
- The update also adds the ability to identify 2FA supported logins.
- The Windows version of Enpass also has design changes that arrive with this update.
Enpass is one of the best Windows 10 password managers available, and a recent update to the service makes it even better. That latest update to Enpass brings it to version 6.6 and includes breach monitoring and the ability to identify two-factor authentication (2FA) logins. The update also includes design improvements that make navigation easier.
Breach monitoring is a major addition to Enpass. It doesn't matter how many characters your password is if a website gets breached and people can access your password. Enpass will now notify you when a website is breached, allowing you to change your password to make sure you aren't vulnerable.
Enpass can now also identify which of your accounts support 2FA. You can then elect to not save one-time codes within Enpass if you'd like.
Here's everything that's new and improved in Enpass version 6.6.0, as found in its release notes:
- Breach Monitoring | CURRENTLY VISIBLE TO PREMIUM USERS ONLY: Enpass has got new brains to notify you about website breaches so that you always stay on top of your security. Change passwords of vulnerable accounts as soon as you get alerts. All the checking happens locally on your device without sending any URLs to us.
- 2FA Supported Logins | CURRENTLY VISIBLE TO PREMIUM USERS ONLY: Identify your accounts that support 2FA but don't have one-time codes saved in Enpass. You can go through the list and choose not to save one-time codes in Enpass if you're using any other method like call, email, or text for second-factor authentication.
- Enpass Assistant has got better with a lot of new features suggested by you all. You can now add new logins, edit them directly from the browser extension without jumping on to the main app. Also, the detail page of any item in the assistant will show the associated tags as well.
- New Audit section design as a single-entry dashboard to review any possible vulnerabilities regarding your accounts and passwords.
- Now you see a prominent warning header on the item's details page if that particular website is breached in the past, supports 2FA, or the password of that item is weak, compromised, identical, or has expired.
- Nextcloud users, now you have a direct option to set up your sync. If you've enabled 2FA in your Nextcloud account, you don't have to create an App password if you do it using this option.
- Faster restore from cloud now, with improvements in the attachment download process.
- Various UI improvements. The settings screen will show tabs at the bottom for faster switching.
- All your items under 'Expiring tomorrow' and 'Expiring in a week' will now be listed under 'Expiring Soon.'
- Show/Hide menu option in settings for the classic theme.
The update also includes several fixes, including fixing sync issues with OneDrive and Dropbox.
The biggest additions that come with this update require a premium plan, but there are also changes for free users.
