Spotlight: Enpass Password Manager works on mobile and desktop platforms, stores passwords securely

Today's app spotlight shines for all security-minded users who need to manage multiple passwords across their desktop and mobile computing devices. Enpass Password Manager is a modern app/service that works on Android, iOS, and desktop computers (Mac, Windows, Linux).

Like most applications of its kind, its main purpose is storing all your passwords inside a secure data "container" that's locked with a master password. This virtual safe exists offline on your device, protected with AES-256 encryption algorithms. Speaking of 'offline', the app's makers went reasonably far to turn Enpass into an "all-in-one" offline solution. For example, online signup is not a requirement (your data is secured on the device itself, or in the cloud), and there's a built-in password generator to forge a passphrase that only a supercomputer can crack.

There are additional goodies that serve to truly round out the application. There's stuff like auto-locking (happens when you stop using your device for a while) and automatic clipboard clearing (upon pasting its contents). Other things we appreciate is fingerprint sensor support for devices that have one on them, backup and restore over local Wi-Fi, and the fact that you are not tied to any subscription plans. Simply download the app and go about using it!

Enpass is free to use on all supported platforms, and has an optional $9.99 one-time payment to unlock a "lifetime license" on Android and iOS. Without the license, you are limited to storing up to 20 passwords. There are no charges for the desktop versions.
