    However, users who have purchased before the transition to the subscription model will be eligible for automatic activation of an Enpass Pro subscription. So if you're interested in using Enpass, now is the time to take advantage of this deal.

    Checked out Enpass, the subscription payment model is now in effect, since when I'm not sure.

    Too late to get a lifetime license cheap, it now costs $53.99.

    Wow, that quite high prize. I used Enpass for a while. I paid the one time fee because I wanted to support the development, but back then it had some problems recognizing some input fields so I went for Bitwarden instead. But I have no illusions about it being a low yearly($10) fee (if you need the extras) for so much longer, development costs money. Godspeed to Enpass..

    Hi sukarof.

    I guess your opinion of a secure password manager differs to mine.
    But there is no way that I would trust an open source password manger, or any password manager that stores my passwords on their servers.

    That is one of the benefits of Enpass.
    It gives you total control over where your passwords are stored. And that is locally, with your choice of cloud sync if you wish. I find cloud sync very handy.

    Yes our opinions differ, as they should. The world would be very boring place if everyone agreed ;)

    My view is that until someone provides some kind of proof, even itsy bitsy tiny bit, that the encrypted database on a cloud server has (or how it could) ever been decrypted without the master password (and in my case 2FA too) so that all passwords and credit card information were revealed, I wouldn't be worried. Sure, someone can steal the database itself, but can they decrypt it?

    Btw dont you have the same "problem" if you store your Enpass database on any cloud server? The only difference is that in my case it is Bitwarden that hosts it instead of google or whatever other cloud server. If you want to be totally secure you should host it on your own cloud server of which you have total control I guess. But you do as you wish of course. If you want even more "total control" I would suggest Keepass. You dont even have to pay anything for that.
    Personally I love the fact that we have so much to choose from, paid or free.

    Yes, although some people consider this a second layer because another provider is protecting that cloud.

    Good points to both of you. As I suspected. ;)
    I prefer my database on one of my preferred cloud storage providers.
