Enpass Ubuntu

Enpass is a password management program for Linux, Windows, Mac OS, Web, and Mobile devices. All desktop versions are absolutely free while mobile apps are limited to 20 items unless a life-time license ($9.99) is bought.

Enpass now is at version 5.2, which features TOTP support, autorun on startup, import from 1Password OPVault, Pocket and Password Depot.

Enpass 5.2

An official Linux repository is available for Ubuntu 12.04 and later (Ubuntu 16.04 is supported now), so you can follow the steps below to install it:

1. Add Enpass repository.

Launch Software & Updates from Unity Dash, or System Settings window. When it opens, navigate to Other Software tab, and click Add button to add the line below:

deb stable main

add enpass repository

2. Open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), paste the command below and hit run to get the keyring, so your system will trust the packages from the repository:

wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Enpass repository key

You’ll be asked to type in password to be able to add the key, and there’s no visual feedback while typing your password.

3. Now if you have Synaptic Package Manager installed, launch it and search for and install enpass after clicked Refresh.

Or you can run the commands below one by one to do the refresh and install things:

sudo apt update

sudo apt install enpass

Once installed, you need to log out and back in to be able to launch the software from Unity Dash.

4. (Optional) To uninstall Enpass password manager, use Synaptic Package Manager or run the command below in terminal:

sudo apt remove enpass

To remove Enpass repository, use Software & Updates -> Other Software.
