Secure your passwords and critical information with Enpass Password Manager
Enpass is a popular cross-platform app for storing and backing up your passwords and other important information securely as well as syncing the information across devices. The Windows Phone app also offers a customizable password generator that you can use to create strong passwords to use online.
The Enpass Password Manager & Information Keeper app has been recently bumped to v18.104.22.168 and adds a bunch of new features apart from some UI improvements and bug fixes.
Enpass uses military-grade AES-256 encryption to ensure highest level of security. While all your data is stored locally on your device rather than the company’s servers, the app offers cloud sync through Dropbox and OneDrive. There’s also the built-in secure browser that auto-fills the login details without leaving app.
The latest update adds several abilities to add and modify items and folders, and customize the sidebar. The launcher icon has changed and there are new square colorful icons for items. The OneDrive sync option has also been added with this update.
While Enpass has native apps for all smartphone platforms, the company has now introduced a fully-featured Windows desktop version, free for a limited period. The desktop app can import data from 17 other popular password managers like 1Password, LastPass, RoboForm, Keepass, and others as well as from a custom CSV.
The roadmap of the app includes bringing browser plugins for Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer as well as introducing a Windows Store app for Windows RT and Windows 8 devices. The future versions might include quick pin and pattern unlocking instead of the master password and the ability to securely share items.
Enpass Password Manager is not cheap at $4.99 but with cross-platform support and an impressive user experience, it’s a pretty neat app to have. Not just for managing your online credentials passwords, it’s also a useful app to store critical information like your bank and credit card information. The trial version allows storing up to 10 items, so give it a whirl and let us know how you like it.
You can download Enpass for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store.

That reason is, the DB's are store locally, not one their servers, and only on a cloud service if you want to. Not mandatory. There are also App's that use KeePass DB's so that you can just update KeePass and upload to OneDrive, or wherever and they also allow you to use a KeyFile, I find that far more essential than simply a Master Password. So, I did download Enpass, and took a look, it's interesting, and I do like a lot of the templates they have.
This does make for a very useful over all database. I will not use anything like LastPass, where all your data is stored on their servers.
can you really be so sure they don't have access to all your data?
I would rather not have that. Nor pay some yearly subscription fee for it. I will gladly pay for an app that get's regular support and updates, one that does not require me to save all my data to someone else's servers. I will do that myself thanks. Let that be my choice. As in, for now, I use KeePass along with 7pass for WP8.1 and PassKeep for W8.x
I can then store my database on one cloud service and a keyfile on a different one.
You can not open that file without the keyfile, so, this is far more secure.
Passkeep, I hope will eventually have a WP App, or 7pass get a W8.x app
And whichever one is more promising, is the one I will go with. For now there are some minor issues with that setup, but they are not horrible.
Edit the database in KeePass and re-upload to cloud, then you can reopen on other devices. IF, Enpass provides a feature to include a keyfile that can be stored elsewhere (Locally, Network, or Cloud services), I may reconsider. Till then, I will stick with the setup I have. For now, Enpass will stay installed so that I can follow it more easily, but will mostly be un-used till KeyFiles are allowed.
