Enpass it’s one of the seemingly endless password management options, but this past week they made their way to the front of the pack. The introduced feature eliminates the need to sync your password vault via the cloud on your devices. While they have multiple cloud storage options, Enpass is one of the options that does not depend on your storage but on your cloud accounts.
Wi-Fi sync eliminates this need entirely, as long as your devices are on the same network. For this feature to work, your desktop or laptop will run as a server, with mobile devices in sync with it. Cloudless syncing is available to all paid Enpass users, and the developers note that it is for:
someone who is extremely security conscious, then Enpass Wi-Fi Sync is just what you’ve been looking for, as your data will never leave your local network.
The available information shows that it should really be easy to configure too:
- In the Enpass desktop app, go to Enpass Settings → Wi-Fi Sync and add the vaults to the server
- They are now available to sync from mobile devices – just set that particular vault to sync wirelessly versus the cloud in the app
In a world where online security is becoming a stronger focus, it is a smart decision to unplug password storage. Of course, your devices are still potentially vulnerable if you don’t use good practices, but this is a risk that can be easily mitigated.
