Optionally, you can sync across all these devices using your own trusted cloud accounts very securely. Its strength is its ability to make your login information available to you no matter where you are or what type of device you're using.

Your passwords will be secured by military-grade AES 256 bit encryption method by your master password using SQL cipher engine. Your data is secured offline and can be used anywhere. You can easily add any information in your secure vault through a vast range of templates using strong passwords.

In this article, I'll explain on how to install Enpass on our 64 bit popular OS distributions. Let's walk through the steps taken to install these applications on our Desktops.

Installing Enpass on Ubuntu 16

Firstly we need to enable the Enpass repository for our Ubuntu distribution and import the Enpass key to sign our release. I'm installing Enpass on my 64 bit Ubuntu 16 system. Please check out the steps taken to install this:
1. Adding the new Enpass repository to the APT sources list.

# echo "deb http://repo.sinew.in/ stable main" > \
> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/enpass.list
# cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/enpass.list
deb http://repo.sinew.in/ stable main

2. Importing the Enpass Repository license key to sign the release

# wget -O - https://dl.sinew.in/keys/enpass-linux.key | apt-key add -
--2017-07-13 14:52:39-- https://dl.sinew.in/keys/enpass-linux.key

3. Updating the APT repository with the new update and installing our Enpass password Manager software from the Repo.

# apt-get update
# apt-get install enpass

4. After the Enpass installation, you can search the Enpass Icon from your Ubuntu Desktop. On accessing your Enpass Icon you'll be directed to the Enpass Setup page.

Now you can proceed to choose the option "I am a new Enpass user" to continue. This will direct you to a page to setup your master password.

Once you setup your Master password, you're ready to get started with the Enpass Password Manager. You just remember your master password and Enpass will do rest of the tasks for you.
