Sticky Password Pro is now in its sixth version. The newest version is easier to use and more secure than previous versions. This password manager can create and protect long, complex passwords, encrypt your personal data and bypass keyloggers and phishing scams. It also includes both a free portable and iPhone version, which can provide you with your login information regardless of your location. Our TopTenREVIEWS Silver award winning software would be a valuable addition to anyone's security strategy.
Gone are the days when a handful of simple passwords would keep your accounts secure. Experts now recommend that you use passwords with more than 12 characters, and that you do not use the same password for more than one account. The problem is that most people cannot remember complex passwords easily, but they don't necessarily want to write them down either. Password managers such as Sticky Password are the perfect solution. This software can remember volumes of account information for you, automatically log you in to your online accounts and secure your data with military-grade encryption.
Unlike other password managers, Sticky Password works with all popular web browsers including Google Chrome, which is quickly gaining market share. It also easily interacts with popular applications such as iTunes, Dropbox, Google Talk and Skype. This integration means that regardless of your browser preference, this software can auto-fill and auto-save your logins and web forms securely and quickly.
Sticky Password can easily help you organize your accounts, passwords and personal data. It is highly flexible and works with all popular browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome (and others), which means that no matter what your browser preference is, you can take advantage of one-click form filling, automatic logins and auto-save features. The software also works with your bookmarks and can import data from LastPass and RoboForm. Sticky Password includes templates for popular webpage login forms, such as online bank accounts, credit card information, secure notes, website logins and email accounts. You can also create files for just about any type of information you want to save securely.
This password manager provides a range of convenience features, such as the ability to automatically fill-in long web forms with one click and to manage more than one user identity per URL. Filling in new forms can be tedious. Using Sticky Password, you can create an identity and use that information to populate new forms automatically. This password manager can also remember new login information as you fill it in, and it will add the new information to your database if you desire. Sticky Password can also manage more than one identity per URL, which means that it can manage more than one account per website, such as if you manage more than one Twitter account or have several Gmail accounts. Although it does not have the ability to simultaneously log you in to multiple accounts, Sticky can create groups of logins based on your preferences.
This password manager provides a broad array of powerful security options to help combat keyloggers and phishers and eliminate weak passwords. Sticky Password Pro allows you to choose from a variety of encryption and login methods. When you configure the software, you can choose between powerful 256-bit AES, TwoFish or Gost encryption, or even 448-bit BlowFish, 5048-bit Diamond II or 8192-bit Sapphire II. Login options include a master password, USB device or Bluetooth. Using the USB device or Bluetooth method, you can only access the software if the PC is connected to the approved device. The software automatically logs you out once the device is disconnected.
Other security protocols include automatic lockouts, expired password reminders, clipboard protection, a password generator and a virtual keyboard. You can set the automatic lockout to engage after one to 60 minutes of computer inactivity, so you do not have to worry about someone accessing your accounts if you step away from the computer without logging out. Clipboard protection keeps people from accessing information that you cut and paste. Password generators automatically create complex passwords, and you can even configure the software to remind you when it is time to change your passwords, greatly increasing your chance of successfully combating hackers. The virtual keyboard bypasses keyloggers and masks your keystrokes from those who might be able to see your monitor. All of these security tools combined ensure that your passwords and private information is secure. They help circumvent hackers better than traditional or lackadaisical methods can.
In addition to its portable USB version, Sticky Password now offers a compatible version for the iPhone/iPad. Sticky Password Pro license holders can download the free app from the iTunes store. The iPhone version securely stores your data in an encrypted format that can only be accessed with your master password. The mobile phone version can automatically log into your online accounts, display your secure notes and store accounting numbers. However, the iPhone version is currently read-only. This means you can add data to it from your PC, but you cannot add new data directly from the iPhone.
The USB portable version is sync-able with your PC and is free to Sticky Password Pro license holders. The portable version runs from any USB drive and gives you full access to the account information and passwords saved in your Sticky Password database on any other computers you use. Once you are done using the portable version on another computer, you simply remove the USB drive, leaving no trace of the software or your data behind. You do not have to worry about someone using the computer after you gaining access to your information. Sticky Password does not yet offer a version for Android mobile phones or devices.
After the recent LinkedIn, eHarmony and LastFM password hackings, experts again recommend that people take advantage of a password manager like Sticky Password Pro. This software can create complex, long passwords for you and secure them behind one master password – relieving you of the burden of remembering volumes of passwords and usernames while increasing your protection against password hackers. In addition, it can save you time if you manage numerous accounts because you won't need to continually request that the company reset your login information every time you forget a username or password. There really is no downside to using Sticky Password Pro; it is easy to use, secure and convenient – which is all you need from great password management software.
