Welcome to the First Run Wizard! Click Let’s get started!
If this is the first time you’re using Sticky Password, click Create a new Account.
Your StickyAccount is your secure cloud account where you’ll manage your Sticky Password license and devices. Sticky Password is available for Windows and Mac computers, Android smartphones and tablets, iPhones and iPads.
Sticky Password lets you have access to your passwords on all your devices! Thanks to your StickyAccount, you’ll be able to synchronize your passwords across your designated devices and to take advantage of the options to back-up your encrypted database via our secure cloud solution or on you local Wi-Fi or not at all.
If you’ve already have a StickyAccount, click Connect to your existing Account to enter your StickyAccount authentication credentials – you’ll be prompted to enter your StickyID and your StickyPass.
In this example, I’ll show you how to create your StickyAccount. Enter the Email address (your StickyID) and Password (your StickyPass) that you will use to log into your StickyPassword. [Note: your StickyPass is not the Master Password that you will use to protect your passwords in your encrypted database. Your StickyPass is a separate password that is used to authenticate the connection between Sticky Password and your cloud account.]
Click Create my Account.
Click Enable cloud sync to have your encrypted database seamlessly and securely synced on all your devices, and backed up via our secure cloud servers. Sticky Password always synchronizes and backups the entire encrypted database! Your database is accessible only to you, and only on your devices.
By selecting Disable cloud sync, your encrypted database never leave your device.
You will be able to manage the settings for syncing your encrypted data later.
Create your Master Password. Your Master Password is the strong password that you will use to lock and unlock Sticky Password and the encrypted database that protects all your passwords. ONLY YOU will know your Master Password.
We recommend that your Master Password should contain at least 8 characters (the longer the better), and a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numerals and special characters. In general, the longer your Master Password is, the stronger it will be.
Read the information about your Master Password in the data box on the dialog. Check the check box to confirm that you have read and understand the information.
Important: your Master Password is the private key that secures and unlocks your Sticky Password database. Keep it secure and safe – without it, you will not be able to access your data!
Sticky Password is able to import the passwords that have been stored in the browsers on your computer and store them in the encrypted Sticky Password database. (Note: after importing your passwords from the browsers, we recommend deleting the passwords from the browsers.) Select the browser or browsers that you use and click Continue.
That’s all there is to installing Sticky Password. You’re all set!
