Enpass for Windows desktop gets quick pin support, automatic backups and more

If the Enpass desktop app is your go-to password manager, you've got some handy new features to check out in the app's latest update. Moving the Windows desktop app up to version 5.4, the update adds the option to use a quick pin to unlock the app, auto backup, selective field sharing, and much more.

Here's are some of the highlights from what's new in version 5.4 of the Enpass desktop app:

  • Quick PIN support: Set an alphanumeric PIN to quickly unlock Enpass if the App is already running in the background, otherwise, master password will be required.
  • Autobackups: Now Enpass can take backup of your data automatically locally on your device. By default, this feature would be enabled.
  • CSV/DSV Import: If you're having your passwords and login details in CSV or any other delimiter separated file, you can now import them in Enpass using the all new custom CSV/DSV data importer.
  • zxcvbn will show the strength of your passwords: We have empowered the password strength indicator with Dropbox zxcvbn to check you from choosing weak passwords.
  • Selective field sharing: Sharing has gone better with an option to choose the fields to be shared rather than the whole item. So now you can share your bank details with anyone by removing login and other sensitive details. Cool, huh!
  • Subset of password: It lets you see certain characters in password specified by position, for example, "1st, 3rd, next-to-last, last" by just mentioning their position in a specified format.

On top of the above changes, you can now create sub-folders to better organize your saved items. There's also no an option to get notifications when new beta builds are released, making it easier to get in on new features before they hit the release version of the app. Finally, there are various miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements in version 5.4, all of which you can see in the full changelog.

Remember, this is for the desktop Enpass app that's compatible with Windows releases going all the way back to Windows Vista. Enpass also has a universal app available on the Windows Store that you can check out if you're running Windows 10 or Windows 10 Mobile.
