Categories

Interface

Winner: Enpass

The key difference between the LastPass interface and the Enpass interface is that LastPass uses a tile-like layout, while Enpass displays your saved entries in a list. It ultimately comes down to which you prefer. LastPass includes the logo of the website on each tile, making it easy to identify entries quickly. But overall, the Enpass interface is slightly easier to navigate. The data categories are located in the navigation toolbar on the left. When you click on a category, the entries will appear as a list. All you have to do is click on that entry, and all the information for that entry will appear next to it.

Security

Winner: LastPass

Both LastPass and Enpass offer a similar feature that allows you to monitor the strength of your passwords. On Enpass this is called the “security audit,” and is conveniently located in the navigation toolbar on the left, making it easy to check in just one click. But the LastPass security score feature is much more comprehensive, providing a full, detailed report of every login and password stored in your vault. The report indicates duplicates, compromised passwords, weak passwords, and old passwords.

For Families

Winner: LastPass

Enpass does not offer a family-specific version of their software. LastPass offers LastPass Family, which allows you to create one vault for an entire family. Each family member has access to the vault using their personal email, but one designated “family manager” decides which member can view certain folders and information. So you can allow your kids to view the Netflix password, but deny them access to your credit card information.

For Businesses

Winner: LastPass

While Enpass does not have business-specific software, LastPass offers two business options: LastPass Teams, for smaller businesses or inter-departmental use, and LastPass Enterprise, for larger businesses. Both allow companies to share information securely among employees and allow a designated administrator to manage employee permissions.

Pricing

Winner: Tie

Both LastPass and Enpass are free to use. LastPass also offers a premium version at only $2/month per user.  

Mobile App

Winner: LastPass

Enpass and LastPass both have impressive mobile apps, including an intuitive interface and a built-in browser that allows you to use the internet within the app, adding an extra layer of security against hackers. But LastPass wins simply because it’s free to use. Enpass allows you to store up to 20 items on the mobile app, but then costs $10 for unlimited storage.

Who Enpass Might Be Better For:

  • Users who want a basic, no-frills password manager for no cost
  • Users who want to be able to easily monitor the strength of their passwords
  • Users who want an offline password manager
