Connecting Your Android to Your StickyAccount

Posted by Gabriela Nárožná Jul.29, 2014 in Tutorials & Tricks

fb-post50Today I’ll show you how to connect your Android device to your StickyAccount.

Your StickyAccount is your online account where you can manage your Sticky Password 7 license and settings, and everything to do with backing-up and syncing your passwords on your authorized devices using Sticky Password cloud storage.

Your StickyAccount is protected by your StickyPass and the connection uses HTTPS protocol to ensure secure communication when you log in.

First, you’ll need to create your StickyAccount. If you need help, I show you how in one of my earlier tutorials.

Now you’re ready to set up Sticky Password on your Android device to backup and sync your passwords and more. I’ll cover two scenarios:

a) installing Sticky Password on your Android for the first time, and

b) you already have Sticky Password on your Android.

Either way, you’ll be able to safely and securely synch passwords and data across your devices, as well as backup using Sticky Password cloud storage.

a) Installing Sticky Password on your Android for the first time

I’ll be using an Android tablet, but the same steps apply to Android smartphones. Install and run Sticky Password for the first time.

On the first screen, tap Connect To Existing.

That’s all there is to it. You now have Sticky Password running on your Android, and you can take advantage of all the backup and synch capabilities.

b) Connecting to your StickyAccount why you already have Sticky Password installed on your Android device.

If you’re already using Sticky Password on your Android tablet or smartphone, it’s very easy to take advantage of the synchronization across your devices, and the backup functionality available in Sticky Password.

Login to Sticky Password on your Android.

Tap the menu button and select Settings.

NOTE: When connecting to your StickyAccount, the Sticky Password installation on your Android device will evaluate whether the encrypted database on your phone and the encrypted database backed-up in your Sticky Account belong to the same account. In order for the database to be backed up, it is necessary for you to use the same unique Master Password of the encrypted database on your Andoid with that of the encrypted database backed-up in your cloud StickyAccount.

As a reminder, your Master Password is the unique Master Password that you created to protect your passwords and data in Sticky Password.

If the cloud database uses a different Master Password from the one for your local database, the following dialog will appear. Please enter the correct Master Password to the cloud database and tap OK.
