Sticky Password is a handy anti-theft device, but how exactly does it give you the cushion of security? Let’s walk through the software.
Open Sesame with a Master Password
Sticky Password Pro is a 7.8 MB download. The installation takes you through four steps starting with the setup of a master password. This is the only password which you have to remember. A Virtual Keyboard also allows passwords to be entered without pressing keys on the keyboard. The next three steps ask you to setup an authorization method (how you will unlock and access the database); a locking timeout (the auto-lock after x minutes of inactivity); and select the browser extensions that you would like to install.
The authorization method deserves a special mention because it allows you to be flexible and gives the option of using a Bluetooth device or a USB drive to decrypt and unlock the password database. All these options make for a strong first line of defense.
Store Your Personal Data Securely
Sticky Password is not only about storing your usernames and passwords, but the software also manages personal details like addresses and contact numbers as Identities. Also, Secure Memos can be filled up with extra information like passport data, various licenses, or the details of your software licenses and Internet settings, and more. It moves beyond a password management app into the realms of information management.
Putting Sticky Password to the Test
From the system tray, Sticky Password automatically recognizes when an application or a website is launched. If an account is found, the login data is entered and you are logged in automatically. If there is no account in the database, Sticky Password automatically hints at adding an account to the database. You can also use the Sticky Pointer to quickly select an application / website and enter personal data. Sticky Password allows multiple user names-password combos to be saved for one account. It allows for unlimited accounts and you can conveniently group them too.Quiet handy for all your Google accounts.
The auto-fill features of the software also includes other identity details like full name, sex, country, town/city, phone number, email address, etc. You can set up different identity profiles for your online shopping.That’s a real timesaver!
With a single click you can create a portable version of the app to carry along in your portable device. If you are a flummoxed, Sticky Password helps to create super-strong passwords with an included password generator.
To round it all off, Sticky Password has password import, secure encrypted export and backup functions to give you complete peace of mind. Is there anything else you can ask from a foolproof password management software? Stay safe.
