Sharing items from Enpass in an encrypted format

Sharing items in Enpass creates a copy on the recipient's device that is not linked to the original. Your original and their copy will not remain synced.

To securely share individual Enpass items with others, you must first create a secret password — called a pre-shared key (PSK) — that is known only to you and provided to your recipients. Access to the shared information requires the recipient to first enter this PSK.

How does encrypted sharing work?

  • Create a PSK .
  • Share the PSK with your recipients via any secure channel.
  • Follow the steps below to share a PSK-protected item from your Enpass vault.
  • Recipients must enter the PSK in order to add your shared items to their Enpass vaults.
