The Enpass password manager app could find its way to Microsoft Edge in the near future in the form of an extension. For those who have never heard of Enpass before, it’s a mobile and desktop app designed to help with managing passwords to make sure they are always secure.

Tiago, a fan of Enpass, asked its developers on Twitter about the future of the service on Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge. The developer wasted no time answering, ultimately confirming the existence of its plans to support Edge with an Enpass extension in the future.

At the moment, we have no word if the likes of LastPass or 1Password will be available in the short term so users may need an alternative to hold them over — and Enpass could become that worthy alternative.

To make things even more interesting, Microsoft announced at Build 2016 its plans to integrate Windows Hello with Edge, a feature Enpass could take full advantage of to provide users with a high-quality password manager. We also expect LastPass to do the same if it wants to stay ahead of the game.

The announcement on Twitter was brief, which means we don’t have more information to go by. We will definitely learn more about these plans in the near future, but how near is still up in the air.

At the moment, two extensions for Microsoft Edge — Pintrest and OneNote Clipper — have been made available with the release of the latest Windows 10 build to Insiders. We’ve used these extensions and they perform just as well as the versions available on other competing web browsers. All we need now is for Microsoft to open the floodgates and allow some exceptional extensions to enter the store.
