How to use Enpass Password Manager with Nextcloud

Enpass is a password manager for Windows, Linux, and MacOS. There are also apps for Apple Mobile Device and Android. The safes with the passwords can be synchronized with cloud services such as Dropbox One Drive or WebDAV by using multiple devices. The data passwords are encrypted in the data safe with 256-bit AES. The premium versions of the software cost $11.99 per device.
