There are so many websites and communities out there that require unique credentials for logging in. For sites related to social networks and social media, you may be able to get away with using your Facebook or Twitter accounts for access, but that option isn’t available everywhere. Over time, if you’re like me, you’ll end up with a whole pile of different usernames and passwords for every which place.
Sticky Password Pro 6 steps in to solve those problems. The program acts as a master database of all of your usernames and passwords, taking care of the memorization and letting you relax your brain just a bit.
Sticky Password Pro 6 is available for $29.99 on Windows XP, Vista, and 7. There is a free version with limited features — you’ll only be able to create 1 profile and it will only store up to 15 username/password combinations. But here’s the good news: this week, we’ll be giving away 25 copies of Sticky Password Pro 6 worth a total of $750 for free!
If you want a chance at winning a copy, all you have to do is read through the review. The giveaway details will be at the bottom of this post.
Review of Sticky Password Pro 6
Personally, I’m not a big user of master password keepers and such programs. More specifically, I never use them. Not for browsers, or websites, or programs, or anything. At most, I’ll use the “log me in automatically” option for web accounts, but that’s about it. After reviewing Sticky Password Pro 6, I’m wondering why I never used something like this before.
Sticky Password can store username and password data for web accounts and applications. This is a concept that is new to me and I can really see the benefit in that. Sticky Password will know when you’re accessing a website or program in your database, and then it will automatically enter your credentials for you. Other than setting up the initial database, you don’t really have to do anything.
And you might not even need to do any initial setup. If you do a lot of password storage in other browsers and password managers, then you can use the Import Wizard and it will do all the hard work for you.
Here’s my current setup for web accounts. Sticky Password worked flawlessly for each of those listed sites. Since taking that screenshot, I’ve added more websites without much issue. But this is more than just a storage database for login credentials.
For each web account, you’ll be able to choose certain options: default browser to use when launching from within Sticky Password, how specific of a target the given link should be, whether to log in automatically, and whether you want to generate a new password (if you find that your password is too weak based on the given password strength indicator).
App accounts are the computer program version of web accounts. When you install Sticky Password, it will scan your system for all available programs. It will then present you the option of setting up credentials for those programs.
The one downside of the app accounts is that the list of supported applications is pretty short. And as far as I’ve tried, you can’t add custom programs as Sticky Password Pro 6 won’t detect them.
At first glance, there may seem to be a lot of options that can be changed in Sticky Password. But on closer inspection, I found that a lot of the options are shallow and cursory. Still, you’ll be able to customize it a little bit in terms of hotkeys, database encryption type, which browsers are supported, and a number of other miscellaneous things.
All in all, Sticky Password Pro 6 does what you’d expect it to do. As a master password manager, it does its job rather well. The interface is very simple and intuitive, which is a good thing for a program like this. You won’t be tripping over a poorly designed layout, that’s for sure.
Here are some other features that you’ll find in Sticky Password Pro 6:
- Sticky Password’s password generator creates the strongest passwords for your accounts.
- Sticky Password’s password database is encrypted with the strongest encryption algorithms available. It defaults to the military-grade AES algorithm.
- Sticky Password won’t send credentials to fake and imposter websites, thus protecting you from phishing scams.
- Sticky Password’s automatic login and form-filling leaves no trace for pesky keyloggers to steal your passwords from you.
- The Secure Memos feature allows you to securely store other important data, like software licenses, credit cards, bank accounts, and ID numbers.
- Sticky Password comes with a free iPhone app that syncs effortlessly with your computer and allows you to access your passwords from anywhere when you need them.
