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.

Again, we’re giving away 25 free copies of Sticky Password Pro 6 to all of our beloved MakeUseOf fans and readers. Please be reminded that Sticky Password Pro 6 is only available for Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

    Sticky Password is my favorite password manager for the local storage. I like the theme. It was calm looking interface. It is easy to setup each website.

    With most computers having fingerprint reader these days, manufactures should include their own security suite. I have an HP Elitebook and it came with HP's Protect Tools. Protect Tools integrates with my computer's fingerprint reader to store all my passwords. All I need to do to log into my computer or a website is to swipe my finger. It also automatically detects forms in many other applications as well. If only OEM software worked on other computers.

    I like Keypass, especially when combined with dropbox. But it am looking for something a little more robust. I'm interested to see how this comparrs.

    I have a LastPass premium subscription but can across Dashlane today which looks just as good but with better UI. Also you get premium services for referral of friends. Saves £30 nearly on this if you don't win. What do people think of Dashlane?

    • Kelly Buchanan
      June 18, 2012 at 4:59 am

      I've had some issues with Dashlane while in beta and have yet to see them fixed.It continues to autofill incorrect fields. Can't seem to differentiate between username and email sometimes. It looks promising though, especially how it keeps track of your online purchases if you want it to.

    Can we get more than 1 entry using points system.
    Like I already shared the giveaway in FB (liked too), Twitter & G+. Also, got one entry through points system.
    I want to know if I can again use the point system to get one more entry, is it possible??

    • Tina
      June 15, 2012 at 9:55 am

      Mayank,

      I'm afraid the point system currently only allows for one entry per person.

    • Jackson Chung
      June 15, 2012 at 11:47 am

      If you entered using the point system, you'll be given the option to share the article on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ -- each share will gain you an additional entry.

    I was one of the winners in the previous giveaway for sticky password. Roboform was the first password manager i used then i moved to lastpass. Actually i tried using sticky password for about a week when i won it. It was better than roboform and as good as lastpass. But since my computer used to crash often and i had to reinstall the OS often, i had to move back to lastpass. If you use sticky password and if in case your system crashed badly, you might be in trouble unless you have backed up the password data. If sticky password have an option to created a encrypted backup of the passwords and have it uploaded to dropbox or google drive i would certainly use it again.

      Hello Samsudeen, you can synchronize the default.pws - that is your encrypted database file - with Dropbox without any problems.

      • Samsudeen Hussain
        June 15, 2012 at 2:12 pm

        Thank you for your reply. Will certainly give it a try one more time if i win it this time.

    I prefer Lastpass, you can use it on any number of devices. Sticky password license only allows installation on one pc and usb device.

    Is it better than Keypass and does it have a portable version ?

    • Joel Lee
      June 14, 2012 at 10:26 pm

      I've never used Keypass, but Samsudeen says in his comment that he liked it better than Roboform and as much as Lastpass. Maybe that will help you in determining its worth?

    • Sticky Password
      June 15, 2012 at 6:53 am

      Hello Dany, of course we are better then Keypass :) And yes, we have a portable version available, so you can use Sticky Password on the go.

    does it work with w8?

    • Joel Lee
      June 14, 2012 at 10:27 pm

      I do not have a copy of W8 to test it on and I did not find any mention on the site. W8 has not been properly released yet, so I don't expect full support until it is.
