Both Enpass and NordPass are known for offering all of their features at zero cost. However, they both work very differently and limit free users in different ways. One of the main differences is how they save data entries. While Enpass is an offline password manager and, therefore, stores all information locally, NordPass is online and stores data on its servers. That being said, both end up being pretty secure as they encrypt all information end to end, ensuring that nobody can access your personal data. Both password managers’ free subscriptions are more than enough for someone looking to store credentials in a secure place but, depending on your needs, only one will work best for you.

Enpass is a comprehensive password manager where you can store more than just your credentials. It comes with various pre-built forms that you can take advantage of to securely save anything you want. Moreover, Enpass also provides a thorough form builder, ensuring that you can add any data type that the developers may have overlooked.
On top of the generator that creates passwords with a length of up to 100 characters, Enpass also monitors all stored passwords and warns you about weak and/or duplicated keys, as well as data breaches. Desktop users can also synchronize devices and share items with others for free. However, it’s not the most straightforward process. Since this password manager works offline and doesn’t store any type of information on its servers, you have to use a third-party cloud service to sync and share items saved in your vault.
Enpass’s paid subscription is needed to unlock all of the mobile app’s features. Although you can also use the free mobile version, Enpass limits the number of data entries to just 25. So, to fully use Enpass to its full potential, a premium account is necessary, costing at least $1 per month.
The team behind NordPass is the same as the one who developed the well-known NordVPN. Naturally, this password manager offers excellent security features and encrypts all data entries end to end. Since the company utilizes zero-knowledge architecture, it doesn’t have access to any of your information, which means that neither does a potential hacker.
When it comes to password management, NordPass may seem a little basic due to its limited data entry support. Users can only enter credentials, payment information, and secure notes. However, the software compensates for this by enabling you to store an unlimited number of data entries for free. What’s more, the password manager also provides a password generator that goes up to 60 characters, and the service also offers autosave and autofilling features. The desktop app needs to work together with the browser extension to release NordPass’s full potential and, since the password manager isn’t available for Safari, it can be a deal breaker for many macOS users.
NordPass’s paid subscription offers the ability to have an account working on six devices simultaneously, share items with others securely, and assemble an emergency contact list in case something happens. Prices start at $2.49 per month and there’s a 7-day free trial available.
Regardless of whether you opt for Enpass or NordPass, you’ll be in good hands. If you’re looking for a way to safely secure your passwords, the companies’ free subscriptions are more than enough. However, if you want to use multiple devices, Enpass is the only one that lets you do so at zero cost. When it comes to synchronizing data entries between your computer and mobile phone, both password managers require a premium account, and Enpass is the most competitive of the two. Not only is it less costly, but it also supports a higher number of connected devices.
