Enpass Portable will let you access your passwords anywhere from a USB drive

Enpass, the company behind the eponymous password manager, has announced Enpass Portable, a portable USB drive intended to make accessing your passwords a breeze from any computer. According to Enpass, the Enpass Portable USB drive will make accessing your login information as easy as inserting the drive, launching the app and logging in.

Enpass Portable will let you manage your passwords from a USB drive

From Enpass:

As the name suggests, Enpass Portable is designed to allow you to carry your passwords, login details, and other important information with you - in your USB drive - wherever you go.It is useful for users who don't have administrator rights on a machine to install the Enpass app, and also the System Administrators who have to keep switching their workstations. With Enpass Portable, we've completely bypassed that problem. There's no install required… just plug in the USB drive, and you're done.

Perhaps most interesting of all is that Enpass Portable will be free for all Enpass users both free and paid. That said, the drive isn't yet publicly available as Enpass plans to beta test it for a bit longer. The good news is that means members of Enpass' beta program — which is open to anyone — can test it out for free ahead of its public launch.

If you're interested in trying Enpass Portable during the beta period, you can sign up for the Enpass beta now. And if you're an Enpass user, let us know if you're looking forward to trying the Enpass Portable out once it launches in full.

  • Nice idea. I'll be signing up.
  • Sticking to LastPass. Tried Enpass and seemed very complex to setup compared to Lastpass. But Enpass seem to do a lot of PR....
  • You do realize LastPass was hacked several times over the last few years, right?
  • I tried LastPass and hated it. It was my first experience of a password manager. Switched to Enpass and actually enjoyed the experience.
    Each to their own, I guess. :-)
  • I'll stick to LastPass. Many features and options. Encrypted and secure. Don't listen to the claims of it being hacked. Do your research and learn what the so called hack, actually was.
  • When for Edge? ;P And it still doesn't work as expected for Opera and so on, always tells me to turn it on in settings, and I have turned on browser extension a thousand times :-o
  • What antivirus you use?? I know some are blocking Enpass, had this with Sophos Home and something else. Currently use Bitdefender and no issues here...
  • Maybe a dumb question, but do you have Enpass actually launched when you try to use the browser extension? That requirement bugs me. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Seen this sort of thing offered before from others (and you can do it with keepassX etc.) but this is good for those who are already fans on Enpass. I love their UWP app personally so the app on my phone + Hello IS my portable manager in a way
  • When it goes on sale I may get it for all three systems. Until then I'm extremely happy with mSecure.
  • Now the big question: Can you use your phone as the USB-drive?
  • Interesting question and the answer should be YES. I would love to have this option instead of carrying USB stick... Phone is always with me anyway...
  • This could be useful, I move between sites and multiple workstations that I don't have admin permissions on during the working week. I also wish there was a non-beta Edge extension but there is a problem with missing APIs: https://www.enpass.io/blog/enpass-extension-for-windows-microsoft-edge/
