What is the Security Dashboard

The Security Dashboard provides an audit to let you know the strength of your passwords. It’s a convenient way to see which of your Web and App Account passwords are:
  • weak: passwords that are short, are made up using only letters, don’t use a healthy amount of variation in characters, numerals and special characters, or abuse some other rule,
  • reused: passwords that are used for two or more accounts,
  • old: passwords that haven’t been changed for 12 months or more, or for which the expiration date you set has passed.
All the Web or App accounts that have one or more of the above problems will appear in the Security Dashboard.

Where can you find the Security Dashboard

  1. Open the Sticky Password main window and click Security Dashboard.
  2. Click Security Dashboard.
  3. At the top of the Security Dashboard you can check your overall security score showing the percentage of unsafe passwords.
  4. Security score.
  5. By clicking on one of buttons on the right, you can quickly filter the accounts by security status: weak, reused or old.
  6. Security Dashbiard - Filter.
  7. If none of the passwords in database matches the unsafe definition - and that’s the goal! - then the Security Dashboard won’t have any entries.
  8. That’s the goal! - the Security Dashboard won’t have any entries.

  2. In the main window click Menu and select Settings.

    Tap Web Accounts.
  3. Click Hotkeys.

    Tap Web Accounts.

Default Hotkeys

Lock / unlock Sticky Password (Ctrl + Alt + L)

This is great for when you're in a hurry and you need to lock Sticky Password quickly before leaving your computer. Save time by pressing the hotkeys instead of going through the Sticky Password menu.

Tap Web Accounts.

Enter password (Ctrl + Alt + A)

If you are on a web page that contains a login form, just press the hotkeys. I use this mostly for web accounts where I have multiple logins. I simply press the hotkeys and click on the login.

Tap Web Accounts.

The virtual keyboard (Ctrl + Alt + V)

The virtual keyboard is great protection against keyloggers! Extra tip: when you check the Anti spy checkbox nobody can see which keys you've really pressed. It's very useful in public places like libraries, cafes, and any place where 'shoulder surfing' can be a problem .

Tap Web Accounts.

Show/hide Quick Launch box (Ctrl + Alt + R)

Do you have a lot of accounts? Save time with the Quick Launch box: now you won't have to search through all of your accounts each time getting to the one you want!

Press the hotkeys to open the Quick Launch dialog and then type the first few letters of your account until the choices appear and click on it. The Account opens in a new tab.

Because only you know your Master Password, it is not possible to recover it if it is lost or forgotten. That's why it's so important that you remember it. We at Sticky Password do not have access to your Master Password, or to your password database. This information is stored only on your devices, and always in an encrypted format.

It’s the only password you have to remember, so it’s important that you know how to change it when you need to.

How to change your Master Password?

    Open Sticky Password Main window, click Menu and select Settings
  2. Click the Security tab.

3082 Synchronize Your Data - Local Sync Option 2017-04-11 08:00:18 synchronize-your-data-local-sync-option 11 Gabriela Jordánová Android https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/android/ Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ The Local sync option allows you to synchronize your encrypted Sticky Password database between any two of your devices over your local Wi-Fi or other local network (wired LAN).

Tuesday tutorial - Local Sync

Local sync is supported on devices that have Sticky Password installed on them: computers, smartphones and tablets running Windows, macOS, Android or iOS. To take advantage of all the benefits of syncing your data, make sure that you’re using Sticky Password Premium. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use Local sync between your PC and an Android device.

Prerequisites

Before we start, make sure that:

  • Both of your devices are connected to your local network.
  • Sticky Password must be installed and unlocked on both devices.
  • Sync – local must be enabled on both devices.
  • And, last but not least, both devices must be using the same StickyID (i.e. connected to the same StickyAccount) – after all, we’re going to synchronize the data between devices associated with one user account.

Set your Android device

  1. Unlock Sticky Password on your Android device, then tap the menu button in the top right corner and select Settings. Tap the menu button in the top right corner and select Settings

  2. Click Synchronization Settings.

    Click Synchronization Settings
  3. Tap Sync methods to reveal the available options.

    Tap Sync Methods
  4. Select Local over Wi-Fi.

    Select Local over Wi-fi

Set your Windows PC

  1. Open Sticky Password and click the small dropdown arrow of the sync settings button in the lower left corner: select Sync – local.

    Open Sticky Password main window
  2. This will launch the popup dialog showing you the available devices that you are able to sync with. From the list that appears, select the device that you want to synchronize with and click Sync.

    Click the small dropdown arrow of the sync settings button in the lower left corner: select Sync – local

Confirm your PIN

  1. If this is the first time you’ll be synchronizing with the selected device, a dialog will appear with a PIN that you’ll need to enter in the other device – in this example, this is our Android device. For security purposes, the PIN needs to be entered in the target device within 30 seconds, or you will have to generate a new PIN on your PC.

  2. A PIN dialog will appea.r
  3. Enter the PIN when prompted on your Android device and tap OK.

  4. Enter the PIN when prompted

Your PC and Android device will now synchronize the encrypted Sticky Password database between themselves. The date and time of the last sync is always displayed at the bottom of the main Sticky Password dialog window.

The date and time of the last sync is always displayed at the bottom of the main Sticky Password dialog window

Troubleshooting

If local sync doesn't work correctly (for example, because the devices cannot see each other), make sure that:

  • Both synced devices are connected to the same StickyAccount (i.e. are using the same StickyID).
  • Sticky Password is unlocked on both synced devices and local sync is selected on both devices.
  • Both devices are connected to the same local network (Wi-Fi or wired LAN).
  • Try to initiate local sync from device A to device B. If this doesn’t seem to work - then try to initiate the sync from device B to device A.
  • Try to temporarily disable your firewall or antivirus as this may be blocking communication between your devices.

Troubleshooting

If you’re having trouble with a browser extension, here are some things you can try before contacting support:

  1. Restart Google Chrome, or try restarting your computer before reinstalling the extension.

  2. Google Chrome sometimes leaves some chrome.exe processes open even when all the Google Chrome windows have been closed. Because of this, Sticky Password (and other programs) may not be able to install the necessary extension.

    If you are experiencing this problem, open the Windows Task manager (you can use the key combination Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and close all the chrome.exe processes on the Processes tab (by clicking End Process for each chrome process) before attempting to install the extension again.

    Close all the extension.
  3. If the extension doesn´t work correctly or you are unable to install it, try to disable your antivirus or firewall to check if it doesn´t block the extension. If this solution helps, add an exception for Sticky Password to the problematic app.

  4. * The Sticky Password extension is available through Sticky Password and not as a standalone app in the Google Chrome store. ]]>

5080 Synchronizing Your Data: With Sticky Password, You Decide 2017-02-14 12:00:57 synchronizing-your-data-with-sticky-password-you-decide 11 Gabriela Jordánová Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ Have you checked out all the synchronization options available with Sticky Password? Sticky Password Premium supports multiple options for syncing your passwords across all your devices and backing up your encrypted database. Let's take a look!

Tuesday tutorial Synchronizing Your Data: With Sticky Password, You Decide

A quick note before we get started: regardless of the setting your choose, your encrypted database can only be accessed on your devices – never in the cloud!

Synchronization - the options

  • Cloud sync – allows you to take advantage of the secure Sticky Password cloud solution to sync and backup your passwords and other data you have stored in Sticky Password.

    Your encrypted database is securely backed‑up in the cloud and, as I mentioned above, your database cannot be accessed in the cloud – only on your devices!

  • Local Wi‑Fi sync – a special feature that allows you to sync your devices with each other over your local Wi-Fi network. Syncing takes place over your Wi‑Fi – your encrypted database never goes out to the cloud.

  • No sync – you can also disable sync and your encrypted data never leaves your device(s).

Choosing the right sync option

  • During the First Run Wizard

    You first came across the Sticky Password sync options in the First Run Wizard (during the installation of Sticky Password). You had the option of enabling or disabling the cloud sync. Regardless of the initial selection you made, you can change your mind later.

    You had the option enabling or disabling cloud syncing.
  • In the Sticky Password main window

    1. Hover your mouse pointer over the lower left corner of the Sticky Password main window – that's where the Sync setting lives. Your current setting is displayed.

    2. A little arrow will appear – click it and a drop down menu will reveal the options. Select the syncing option you'd like to use going forward.

    Click small arrow in the Sticky Password main window and select syncing option.
  • In the Settings menu

    1. Click the Menu button in the upper right corner and select Settings.

    Click small arrow in the Sticky Password main window and select syncing option.

    2. Then click the Synchronization tab.

    Click synchronization tab.

    3. Your current sync setting will be indicated with the black dot in the respective radio button. Select the syncing option you'd like to use going forward, and click Save.

    Your current sync setting will be indicated with the black dot in the recpective radio button.

That's it! To find out more about local Wi‑Fi syncing, check out our tutorial Synchronize Your Data – Local Sync Option.

What is the Security Dashboard

The Security Dashboard provides an audit to let you know the strength of your passwords. It’s a convenient way to see which of your Web and App Account passwords are:
  • weak: passwords that are short, are made up using only letters, don’t use a healthy amount of variation in characters, numerals and special characters, or abuse some other rule,
  • reused: passwords that are used for two or more accounts,
  • old: passwords that haven’t been changed for 12 months or more, or for which the expiration date you set has passed.
All the Web or App accounts that have one or more of the above problems will appear in the Security Dashboard.

Where can you find the Security Dashboard

  1. Open the Sticky Password main window and click Security Dashboard.
  2. Click Security Dashboard.
  3. At the top of the Security Dashboard you can check your overall security score showing the percentage of unsafe passwords.
  4. Security score.
  5. By clicking on one of buttons on the right, you can quickly filter the accounts by security status: weak, reused or old.
  6. Security Dashbiard - Filter.
  7. If none of the passwords in database matches the unsafe definition - and that’s the goal! - then the Security Dashboard won’t have any entries.
  8. That’s the goal! - the Security Dashboard won’t have any entries.

Once the correct PIN has been entered, the device will be added to your list of trusted devices.

Manage your trusted devices

Login to my.stickypassword.com. Scroll down to the Trusted devices section. Here you will find a list of your trusted devices, you can see all the devices that you use with Sticky Password, as well as the browsers you use to access your StickyAccount. Sticky Account - trusted device It’s a good idea to check your list of trusted devices from time to time. Are you still using all the devices in the list? Devices you’re no longer using should be removed. (You can remove devices that you know you won’t be using now but may use in the future.) Simply click Remove device. The list of trusted devices.Click Remove. Click remove.

Keep your device authorization under control

Go to the My Account tab - Authorization section. Click to my account tabbYou’ll see three options:
  • Authorize any device:  This setting allows you to access your StickyAccount on any device/browser with the correct StickyAccount credentials. You’ll be able to synchronize databases and access your StickyAccount on any device.
  • One-time PIN: when selecting this authorization method, a PIN will be sent to your StickyID (e-mail address) or Alternative e-mail (if specified) whenever a request to add a device to your StickyAccount is made.
  • No new devices: When you select this setting, only those devices already listed in your Trusted Devices are allowed to connect to your StickyAccount. No new devices will be allowed to connect to your StickyAccount.

6202 Storing Other Info in Sticky Password 2017-01-10 19:06:21 storing-info-in-sticky-password-login-username 11 Gabriela Jordánová Android https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/android/ iOS https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ios/ Mac https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/mac/ Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ Facebook from user Annette asking:

Is it possible to enter and store information other than login and password with my accounts?

Sticky Password is great at storing all sorts of data and information that needs to be kept secure, or even just has to be available for easy access whenever you need it. I occasionally get that question from customers who want to know about storing more info than the standard Username/Login and Password for their accounts. I’ve decided to create a quick tutorial for everyone who needs a refresher on this handy Sticky Password functionality to show you 3 Ways of storing additional account data.

Adding comments to your Web and App Accounts

In addition to the Login and Password data stored for all your Web and App Accounts, Sticky Password lets you enter additional information in the comments section for each Account. To get to the comments section of one of your Accounts, simply double click the Account you want in the Accounts menu. Then click the Setup button (up and down sliders). You’ll be able to define the default browser as well as enter info in the Comments section. It’s a great place to store extra info about an account. Once you've entered the info, click OK to close the dialog. Don't forget to click Save when you're finished with any changes to the Account. I use comments for almost all of my Accounts like storing the secret answers to security questions and more. Reminder: make the answers to your security questions tricky, so that other people who know you won’t guess them! Storing the answers for each of your accounts in the respective Comments section is the best way to have them ready whenever you need them.

Identities

Sticky Password let you store information about yourself that’s used for online form filling and shopping online. Things like your name, address and credit card information can be stored securely to give you 1-click form filling. Sticky Password recognizes when you are filling in a form and will prompt you to use an existing Identity or to create a new one. Identities save you time and the frustration of having to enter and re-enter data on different sites, as well as making sure there are no typos . Find out more about Identities.

Secure Memos

Another great way of storing all sorts of data from your passport data and frequent flyer memberships and other IDs to the security settings on your WiFi and other devices are Sticky Password Secure Memos. Pick one of the convenient templates or simply enter the data you need to store, and Sticky Password will remember it for you. Find out more about Secure Memos. ]]>

1427 Creating Strong Passwords with Sticky Password 2016-11-29 15:15:30 creating-strong-passwords-with-sticky-password 11 Gabriela Jordánová Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ your passwords are the first line of defense against cyber criminals. Sticky Password tuesday tutorial

Let's summarize some best practices for strong and smart passwords:

  • Use a unique password for each of your accounts
  • Use a combination of letters, numbers and special characters
  • Create a password that is hard for others to guess - Sticky Password does this for you
  • Make sure your password recovery options* are up-to-date and secure
  • Change your passwords regularly - follow the guidelines on each site you use and always avoid predictable patterns
  • Protect your passwords by storing them in Sticky Password’s encrypted database

Extra tip for generating strong passwords

A couple of suggestions for good password recovery questions: When given a choice, don’t use the standard questions (like ‘what’s your mother’s maiden name?’) that can easily be answered by someone who knows something about you. Another way to make it harder for bad guys to misuse your password recovery questions is to use answers that don’t make sense, but that only you will know. For example, for the question "what elementary school did you attend?", you might use "pizzeria" as a response - this wouldn't be an answer that someone who found out what school you went to would try. And the good news is that you can store your responses to these and other security questions in Sticky Password.

Generating strong passwords during registration

Sticky Password prompts you to create a strong password when it detects password fields on online registration forms. Let's say you’re signing up for a new Gmail account. (Verify that Sticky Password is running and unlocked on your computer or device). The password generator bubble appears automatically next to the password field. Click Generate Password.

Sticky Password offers to generate a strong password.

Sticky Password will create a strong password for you and enter it in the Create a password and the Confirm your Password fields automatically.

Tip: Advanced options for your password

Sticky Password allows you to manually change the settings for the password generator like password length (we recommend using at least 12 characters), and characters that will be included. Click Advanced options to see more password settings: upper/lower case letters, numbers and special characters. Remember, the longer your password is, and the more different characters a password has, the stronger it is. Click Generate Password to let Sticky Password create a strong password for you and insert to in the Create a password and the Confirm your Password fields automatically.

Sticky Password generator advanced options.

Both the password and the confirmation password fields will be filled in with the new strong password.

Both password fields are prefilled.

The Sticky Password generator is ready to help you whenever you need it

You don’t need to be registering on a website to access the password generator. Whenever you need to generate a strong password, simply click the Sticky Password icon in the notification area in the lower right corner of your monitor and select Password generator.

Creating your new Web Account

Let’s say you want to create a new account in Sticky Password. On the Amazon login page, simply enter your existing email/login and password and click Sign in. The Sticky Password dialog will appear prompting you to save a new account. Click Add to create a new account with one Login. sp_tuesdaytutorial_handling-accounts_2

For this example, select the bold highlighted Login. sp_tuesdaytutorial_handling-accounts_6

Changing the settings for one of your logins

In the picture below, the automatic Log-in option is enabled (checked). This means that when you visit the Amazon web page (amazon.com/ap/signin), the johnsmith@stickypassword.com login will be used as the default and you will be logged in automatically using this login. When you have several logins saved under an online account, you may prefer to disable the Automatic Log-in feature – it’s up to you. By turning off this feature, you’ll be prompted to choose the login that you would like to use each time you visit the website. To disable Automatic Log-in, uncheck the checkbox and click Save. sp_handling-accounts_7

Selecting the login you want to autofill

The next time you visit Amazon.com, click anywhere in the input field of the login form. Sticky Password will prompt you with a list of all the logins that are saved under your Amazon Web Account.

In the previous couple tutorials, I showed you how to be safe on Facebook and some more Facebook security tips and tricks. Today we'll take a look at Twitter. twitterUvodni Here are a few tips for your security on Twitter.
  1. Use a strong password and change it regularly
  2. Use login verification
  3. Check if you are on twitter.com
  4. Evaluating links on twitter

1. Use a strong password and change it regularly

This rule applies everywhere and always, not just for your Twitter account. Changing your password: sign into your Twitter account. Click the Profile picture in the upper right corner and select Settings. Twitter1 Select Password from the menu. Now you can change your password. You can use Sticky Password to populate the Current password field. Twitter2 For your new password I recommend to use our password generator. Click the Sticky Password icon in the top right corner and select Tools - Password Generator. Twitter3   Select the length and any other Advanced options you'd like and click Generate. Then click Use this password. (Click the eyeball icon at the far right of the password field to display your new password.) Twitter4 Don't forget to click Save Changes.

2.Use login verification

  Login verification is an extra layer of security for your Twitter account. This is Twitter's version of 2-factor authentication (2FA). Instead of only entering a password to log in, you’ll also need to enter a code that has been sent via text message to your mobile phone. This verification helps make sure that you, and only you, can access your account. After you enable this feature, you will need both your password and your mobile phone to log in to your account.   Select Security and privacy from the menu. First, you have to add your phone to your Twitter account. Click the blue link add a phone. Twitter5 Add your mobile number and click Continue. Twitter6 Now check your phone for the verification code from Twitter and enter it in the field. Click Activate phone. Twitter7 Now you can set login verification. Select Security and privacy from the menu and check the checkbox Verify login requests. Twitter12 Click Start. Twitter8 Confirm your phone number by clicking Send code. Twitter9 Check your phone and enter the code into the field and click Submit. Twitter10 Congrats, you're enrolled! You can close the dialog or get your backup code by clicking Get backup code. Twitter11

 3. Check that you are on twitter.com

  Phishing is when someone tries to trick you into giving up personal data like your Twitter username, email address or phone number and password, usually so they can send out spam from your account. Often, they’ll try to trick you with a link that goes to a fake login page. Whenever you are prompted to enter your Twitter password, take a quick look at the URL in the address bar of your browser to make sure you're really on twitter.com. Additionally, if you receive a Direct Message (even from a friend) with a URL that looks odd, we recommend that you do not open the link. Using Sticky Password to log you into Twitter and other login pages is a way to check the authenticity of the page. Sticky Password will only log you into the specific page you saved in the database. Phishing websites will often look just like Twitter's login page, but will actually be a website that is not Twitter. Twitter domains will always have http://twitter.com/ as the base domain.If you are ever unsure about a login page, go directly to twitter.com and enter your credentials there.

4. Evaluating links on Twitter

  Many Twitter users post links using URL shorteners, like bit.ly or TinyURL, to create unique, shortened links that are easier to share in Tweets. However, URL shorteners can obscure the end domain, making it difficult to tell where the link goes to. Some browsers have free plug-ins like these in Chrome and Firefox, that will show you the extended URLs without you having to click on them. It's worth it to give these a try. That’s all for today. I’ve introduced you to a set of basic – but important – security and privacy settings. For your own security, as well as the security of your friends and family, make sure that YOU are in control of your privacy and security settings on Twitter, and other social media sites. It takes only a couple of minutes but it’s worth it!

When you turn on Login approvals, you'll be asked to enter a special security code each time you try to access your Facebook account from a new computer or mobile phone. After you log in, you'll have the option to give that device a name and save it to your account. Turning on Login approvals Go to the Facebook Settings menu, and click Security. FB-Safely2-6Click Edit in the Login Approvals line. FB-Safely2-7 Check the checkbox Require a security code to access my account from unknown browsers. Click Save Changes. FB-Safely2-8b Click Get Started. FB-Safely2-9 Select the type of phone you use. Make sure you have the latest version of the Facebook app on your device, and click Continue. FB-Safely2-10Now it’s necessary to activate the Code Generator on your mobile device. Follow the directions in the popup, and then click Continue. FB-Safely2-11 To test the Code Generator, enter the security code from your Facebook mobile app - Menu - Code generator and click Confirm. FB-Safely2-12 If you’re not able to use the Code Generator for some reason, Facebook can text the security code to your phone. Click Continue. FB-Safely2-13 For security reasons, you’ll be prompted to re-enter your Facebook password. Click Submit. FB-Safely2-14b Enter your phone number and click Continue. FB-Safely2-15b You’ll receive a text on your mobile number. Enter the Confirmation Code into the field and click Confirm. FB-Safely2-16 Setup for Login Approvals is complete. If you want to take advantage of Login Approvals right away, check the checkbox and click Close. FB-Safely2-17 Where you can find the code generator? Tap the menu button and scroll down to find the Code Generator. A new Security code will appear every 30 seconds. FB-Safely2-18   An here's an example of a generated code.   FB-Safely2-19     ]]>
2982 Being Safe on Facebook 2016-06-28 15:21:24 being-safe-on-facebook 11 Gabriela Jordánová Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ In today’s tutorial I’ll show you how to increase the security and privacy of your Facebook account. Let's introduce basic rules and options:

1. Use a strong password and change it regularly.

Changing your password: Sign into your Facebook account. Click the arrow in the upper right corner and select Settings. FB-Safely-1 In the Password field you’ll see the last time your password was updated: 10 months – like you see in the picture – is way too long! I recommend changing your password at least every 2-3 months. Click Edit. FB-Safely-2 In the fields shown, enter the current password, your new password, and then retype your new password to make sure you didn't enter a typo. I suggest that you use the Sticky Password generator that you know from previous tutorials. Click Save Changes. FB-Safely-3

2. Think carefully about who you allow to become your friend

Just think about how much personal stuff you post on Facebook. It may sound like fun to (virtually) 'meet' new people, but don't forget that just because someone posted a nice picture of himself or herself on Facebook, doesn't mean that that really is the person that's seeing your private pictures and hearing your private stories. Make sure that you know who you let into your circle of Facebook friends.

3. Be careful when you see ads and updates that promise exciting, scintillating, stimulating, sexy headlines.

You know what I mean, the stuff that grabs your attention like: 'Politician X eats lizards for breakfast." or "Check out the ugly dress Actress J wore to McDonalds." or stuff like “Check out this YouTube video of you."  While not all posts like this may be a risk to your security, too many of them are risky for you to feel comfortable clicking on everything. In general, the rule is when you're asked to  click a link to view something unbelievable, DON'T CLICK.

4. Create and use your Friends lists.

Sorting your friends into groups allows you to decide who sees what from your posts. For example, you may not want your manager at work to see your private family photos from a wedding or vacation – or from that club you visited last weekend with your friends. ;-) Creating your Friends list: Click More in the Friends section (More appears when you hover your mouse pointer over the FRIENDS section in the left column.) FB-Safely-4 Now you can create Lists (it's the Facebook way of saying 'groups') of friends, e.g. people from work in one list, family members in another, etc. Enter a name for your new List and then, in the Members field, add the Friends that you’d like to include in that list. Click Create. FB-Safely-5 Using the Lists you create, you can select the group(s) of friends or colleagues (or however you grouped everyone in your Lists) that will be able to read each of your status updates or see photos that you’d like only selected friends to see. To take advantage of Lists, write your status update and before you post it, click the Friends button and select More options. FB-Safely-6 Here you'll see the Lists you have created. The default setting is Friends – that’s everyone that you are friends with on Facebook. If you leave Friends checked, ALL of your friends on Facebook will be allowed to see your post! Click on one of the Lists you’ve created to limit who’s news feed it will appear in. Click Custom for even more ‘directed’ sharing options. FB-Safely-7

5. Check your Privacy settings.

Select Privacy in the left side panel. FB-Safely-8 Review your privacy settings in each category. Make sure that you are comfortable with who gets to ‘see your stuff’. I recommend that only your Friends should see ‘your stuff’, and that only your Friends can ‘look you up’. FB-Safely-9

6. Check your Timeline and Tagging settings

Select Timeline and Tagging in the left panel. FB-Safely-10 Review your settings in each category. For safety and privacy reasons, only Friends should be able to add or see things on your timeline. You can also use create custom Friends groups by clicking Custom in each category. FB-Safely-11

TIP: How can I see what my profile looks like to other people?

Go to your profile. FB-Safely-12 Below your timeline cover photo, click the three dots next to View Activity Log to reveal the drop-down menu. Click View As... Now you’ll see “what your timeline looks like to the public or a specific friend. Remember: Things you hide from you timeline still appear in news feed, search and other places on Facebook.”   FB-Safely-13 That's all for today. I've introduced you to a set of basic – but important – security and privacy settings. For your own security, as well as the security of your friends and family, make sure that YOU are in control of your privacy and security settings on Facebook, and other social media sites. It takes only a couple of minutes but it's worth it!   ]]>
5408 Sticky Password Gives You Local Sync Options for your PC and iOS 2016-06-21 14:30:01 sticky-password-gives-you-local-sync-options-for-your-pc-and-ios 11 Gabriela Jordánová iOS https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ios/ Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Today I'll show you how to use Local sync over your Wi-Fi or other local network. To take advantage of all the benefits of backing up and syncing your data, make sure that you're using Sticky Password Premium. Sticky Password offers two types of secure data synchronization.
  • Synchronization via the cloud - allows you to backup and sync your encrypted data in our secure cloud servers.
  • Local synchronization - you can sync your devices over your Wi-Fi or other local network: your encrypted data never leave your network.
The Local sync option allows you to synchronize your encrypted Sticky Password database between any two of your devices. Sync 2 PCs, your PC and Android tablet or smartphone, or with your iPhone and iPad, or two smartphones or tablets to each other. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to use Local sync between your PC and and iPhone. sp_tuesdaytutorial_sync Before we start, make sure that:
  • both of your devices are connected to your local network,
  • Sticky Password is installed and unlocked on both devices, and
  • Sync - local must be enabled on both devices, and
  • last but not least, both devices must be using the same StickyID (i.e. the same encrypted database) - after all, we're going to synchronize the data associated with one account.
Unlock Sticky Password on your iOS device, then tap the menu button in the top right corner and select Settings.  

iPhoneWifi1

Click Synchronization Settings.

iPhoneWifi2

Tap Sync methods to reveal the available options.

iPhoneWifi3

Select Local over Wi-Fi.

iPhoneWifi4

On your PC, open Sticky Password and click the small drop down arrow of the sync settings button in the lower left corner: select Sync - local.

LocalSync5

This will display the available devices that you are able to sync with. From the list that appears, select the device that you want to synchronize with and click Sync. deviceWinIphone2 If this is the first time you'll be synchronizing with the selected device, a dialog will appear with a PIN that you'll need to enter in the other device - in this example, this is my iPhone device. For security purposes, the PIN needs to be entered in the target device within 30 seconds, or you will have to generate a new PIN on your PC. pin Enter the PIN when prompted on your iPhone/iPad device and tap OK.

iPhoneWifi5

Your PC and your iPhone will now synchronize the encrypted Sticky Password database between themselves. The date and time of the last sync is always displayed at the bottom of the main Sticky Password dialog window. Note: local syncing of your secure database is always initiated by you! If you plan on taking advantage of the control local syncing gives you, make sure to schedule a time when you will perform the local sync between your devices. ]]>

  • This is the only password you will need to remember, and it is critical that you do not lose or forget this password.
  • Your Master Password is not stored anywhere – so we are not able to ‘resend’ it to you, and we cannot ‘reset’ it.
  • Without the Master Password it is not possible to unlock and access your password database or to use Sticky Password.
  • If you need to change your master password, check our tutorial.
Use strong passwords for all your accounts saved in Sticky Password. June-7-2

Here’s Pavel on the 5 commandments of software patching: sp_tuesdaytutorial_patching2 As an expert in cyber security, how do you prioritize patching in a multi-layered approach to data safety? Start with the most important/frequent service you use. So, for example, if your common daily tool is Office, patch it as soon as a patch is available. The point is to close the most probable hole first. Next on the list are operating system patches and browser patches – as browsers are becoming the most important part of any installation. Next are frequent “trouble-makers“, like Adobe Flash: the best patch for these is to uninstall them. Read the rest, here.   ]]>

While many of you enjoy the security, flexibility and other benefits of using secure cloud applications (like Dropbox, Sticky Password sync, and others), some prefer a more local approach and even greater control. Regardless of your view of the cloud, Sticky Password has the right sync option for you. And, with Sticky Password, you can change your preference. sp_tuesdaytutorial_data-clean2-Apr-5 This tutorial is intended for advanced users who are looking for a more hands-on approach to your data - of course, security is always the number one priority. Note: this tutorial is intended for sophisticated users who want to delete their encrypted password database from their secure StickyAccount in the cloud. As a reminder, when using cloud sync and backup, your encrypted database is securely stored in the cloud. By deleting your database, you are terminating cloud sync as well as secure backup of your database. Because of this, deleting your database is recommended for advanced users intending to perform a permanent switch from cloud synchronization to local syncing or disabling syncing entirely. Step 1: change your sync method from Sync - cloud to Sync - local or Disable sync. I covered that in the tutorial last week. Step 2: Sign in to your StickyAccount and go to the My Account tab. data1   Sept 3: Scroll down to the My Account part. You'll find the Delete all cloud data section. This option deletes all your data from your cloud database. Click Delete all cloud data. data2   Step 4: Confirm that you wish to delete your backup database by clicking Delete all data to confirm. data3 Your password database has been deleted from the cloud, and because you changed the syncing option on your computer, your data will by stored only locally on your device.     ]]>
2905 Working with Secure Memos 2016-03-14 11:30:04 working-with-secure-memos 11 Gabriela Jordánová Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ Working with Secure Memos

What are Secure Memos?

To help you keep track of information like ID and passport numbers, wifi passwords, and anything else that you’d like to keep secure and have easy access to, as well as other information like non‑typical answers to security questions, we’ve created Secure Memos.

Creating a new Secure Memo

  1. Click the Sticky Password systray icon and select Open Sticky Password.

    Click Sticky Password icon and select Open Sticky Password
  2. Click Add Secure Memo.

    Click Add Secure Memo in Main Sticky Password window
  3. Give your new memo a unique name by typing over the pre-defined name ‘New Secure Memo’ – we’ll call ours ‘Security Questions’, enter the text of your new Secure Memo and click Add.

    Enter a name and the text of your new Secure Memo. Click Add.

Displaying your Secure Memos

  1. Your Secure Memo can be displayed from the main Sticky Password window. Simply click Secure Memos in the left pane of the Sticky Password main window, select your Secure Memo and the blue Display button appears.

    I recommend adding Secure Memos that you need to access frequently to your Favorites.

    Display your Secure memo.
  2. Your Secure Memo will appear in the bubble in the lower right corner. Now you can read the info, or copy and paste it whenever you need it.

    Edit orc copy your Secure Memo from systray

Congratulations! You are able to add and use Secure Memos, now you can throw away all those paper notes.

Security tip – use Secure Memos to store your security questions

Do you struggle to remember the answers to your security questions for the websites you use? Secure Memos can help you as well. Here are some suggestions for great password recovery questions.

Always keep in mind that the purpose of security questions when you forget your password for a website is to let you in while keeping everyone else out! A key element of that is that others shouldn't be able to give the right answer to your questions. When given a choice, don’t use the standard questions (like ‘what’s your mother’s maiden name?’). These types of questions can easily be answered by anyone who knows something about you.

Another way to make it harder for someone to misuse your password recovery questions is to use answers that don’t make sense. For example, for the question ‘What elementary school did you attend?’ you might use ‘pizzeria’ as a response – this wouldn't be an answer that someone who found the name of the school you went to on Facebook would try.

  • I will use a unique password for each website.
  • I will install software updates.
  • I will use 2 factor authentication, where possible.
  • I will pay attention when I hear about hacks in the news, so that I'll know what to protect myself against.
  • I will be careful when I get suspicious emails. (Suspicious can be anything unexpected, promises of free money, requests for personal information, emails from your bank with typos or mistakes, or ANYTHING that you think is not right.)
  • I will not use dictionary words for my passwords.
Or, you make it easy on yourself and just have one:
  • I will use Sticky Password.
Of course, you'll always want to install software updates on your devices.
And now you can enjoy that extra piece of cake without any guilt. :-)
We look forward to sharing new tutorials and blogs with you in 2016. Gabi and the Sticky Password Team

Sticky Password in your browser

The first and most important place where you'll meet Sticky Password is your browser. If you have the Sticky Password plugin installed, you can see the Sticky Password icon in the upper right corner of your browser. This is the Sticky Password Caption Button. Sticky Password performs most actions automatically for you - such as adding a new account, adding a new login, changing a password etc. But it is good to know that all these actions can be found in Caption Button menu. Let's take a closer look. When you visit a website where you have an account stored in Sticky Password, Sticky Password recognizes the page and goes to work to log you in automatically. When you have multiple accounts for this site, unless you have a default login selected, you'll see a bubble next to the login form with some options. You're being prompted to choose the credentials you want to use for autofill. But this isn't the only way to select the login you want to use. You can click the Caption Button and here you can find all your logins for the website. You can also add a new login or edit your account. Bookmarks and Identities are also accessible from the Caption Button menu. captionButton When you  visit a website where you don't have an account stored in Sticky Password, the Caption Button menu is a bit different. You can see your favorite accounts at the top of menu, if you click one of these accounts, the website will open in a new tab. All your web accounts can be found under Web accounts or you can add a new account by clicking Add Account. a5

Sticky Password in the notification area

Another place where you'll run across Sticky Password when it's running is the notification area in the lower right corner of your screen. (This area is also called the system tray or 'systray'.) a1 If the icon is not visible, click on small arrow next to speaker icon. You can simply drag the icon and drop it in the system tray. a23 From here you can launch the Sticky Password main window by clicking Open Sticky Password or you can quickly launch your accounts from Favorites. a8

EXTRA TIP: The Quick Launch box

Do you have a lot of accounts and don't want to search through all of them each time you want to access one of them quickly? Don't worry, you can use the Quick Launch box! You can use the default keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Alt + R. The Quick Launch box is also easily accessible from Caption button - Quick Launch box or click the Sticky Password icon in the lower right corner of the screen (notification area) - Quick Launch box. Type the first few letters of your account and click on it. The Account opens in the new tab. a6Congratulations. Now you know the main points of contact with Sticky Password, and how to quickly run your Web Accounts using the Quick Launch box.         ]]>

Today I’ll show you two secure ways to synchronize your data on your iOS device: over the Cloud and over a local Wi-Fi.

Sync-ios-1

Tap Synchronization Settings.

Sync-ios-2

Tap to reveal the list of available Sync methods.

Sync-ios-3

Select Cloud.

Sync-ios-4

You’ll be able to choose from a couple of options for future cloud syncing. You can set Auto sync on launch.

Sync-ios-5

Whenever you want to manually initiate synchronization, simply tap the Sync icon.

Sync-ios-6

2. Wifi synchronization across devices (Local sync) Note: The synchronization option is available only for Sticky Password Premium users. For those who prefer not to send their encrypted data over the Cloud, we have another synchronization option. Sticky Password allows you to use your WiFi or other local network to sync your iPhone with another device. As a reminder, when performing a local sync, your devices must be connected to to your local network, Sticky Password must be installed and unlocked on both, and the Sync “Local over Wi-Fi” setting must be enabled on both devices. Tap Settings.

Sync-ios-7

Tap Synchronization Settings.

Sync-ios-8

Tap to reveal the list of available Sync methods.

Sync-ios-9

And select Local over Wi-Fi.

Sync-ios-11

Here’s what you’ll see on your Mac:

Sync-ios-12

Here’s what you’ll see on your Android device:

Sync-ios-13

When you want to synchronize, simply tap the Sync icon and the list of your available devices will appear. Select the device you want to synchronize with.

Sync-ios-14

When synchronizing with a selected device for the first time, you’ll be prompted with a PIN that you’ll need to enter in the device before syncing can take place.

Sync-ios-15

Enter the PIN on the device you are synchronizing with. In this case I am synchronizing with my Windows PC.

Sync-ios-16

That’s all there is to it! My password database is now synced between my iPhone and my Windows computer.   ]]>

2742 How To Change Your StickyID 2014-08-19 13:34:39 how-to-change-your-stickyid 11 Gabriela Jordánová Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ StickyAccount is your online account where you can manage your Sticky Password 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 StickyID and StickyPass, and the connection uses HTTPS protocol to ensure secure communication when you log in. So, why would you ever need to change your StickyID? Your StickyID is your email address that is used as the unique identifier for your StickyAccount. There are all sorts of reasons that you might need to change an email address, and that means that you may run into various situations when you’d need to update the email address that is also your StickyID. 1. If you simply need to change the email address that your StickyAccount communication - including one-time PINs - will be sent to, then it is NOT necessary to change your StickyID. If you are still using the email address in your StickyID: i.e. as long as this email address is safe and protected by a strong password, and is accessible only by you , then you can simply set an alternate email address in the Settings tab. All communication for your StickyAccount will be sent to your Alternative email address. 2. You may need to change your StickyID because of a security issue, or because you no longer have access to the email address that you used as your StickyID. If you really do need to change your StickyID for any reason, it will be necessary to uninstall and reinstall Sticky Password on your device. During the new installation, you will be prompted to create your new StickyID. Please note that all data in your current StickyAccount cloud database will be lost. However, your local password database is stored on your computer, and this will be used to populate your new StickyAccount. If your Sticky Password has been already activated by a License Key, please contact our Support team (or send an email to support@stickypassword.com). Our support team will transfer your License Key to your new StickyID. Let’s walk through both situations, step by step:

1. You are changing the email address to which your StickyAccount communication will be sent.

Go to stickypassword.com and click Sign in to Sticky Account in the upper right corner. web Enter your StickyID and StickyPass to log into your StickyAccount. Click Sign in. portalNEW Click the Settings tab. StickyID-3Click Change to enter or modify your Alternative e-mail. portalNEW2 Enter your new alternative e-mail address and click Save change. portalNEW3 You have now added an alternative email that will be used for all StickyAccount communication. When you're done, be sure to Logout from your StickyAccount. portalNEW4

2. You need to change your StickyID because of a security issue, or because you no longer have access to the email address that you used as your StickyID.

As a reminder: in order to change your StickyID, it is necessary to uninstall and reinstall Sticky Password on your computer. During the new installation, you will be prompted to create your new StickyID. Click Start - All Programs StickyID-7 Select Sticky Password and click Uninstall Sticky Password. StickyID-8 Click Yes that you want to completely remove Sticky Password. StickyID-9 Click Yes to confirm that you really want to delete Sticky Password settings. StickyID-10Click OK.

Today I’ll show you how to automatically log in to applications that use login forms with multiple fields. For our example today, I’ll show you how to create an App Account with multiple fields using the login form found in the FileZilla FTP client. There are four fields. Besides the usual Username (Login) and Password fields, there are also Host and Port fields. (For purposes of this tutorial, I’ll be using an actual account. To start, leave all the fields empty and click the Caption button - Add Account. MFEA-1Sticky Password will prompt you to save a new account. Enter your Login (Username) and Password. Click Add New Account & Edit. MFEA-2Click the Settings icon in the top right corner to open the Settings menu. MFEA-3Click Define settings manually. MFEA-4 The Manual form edit dialog window will appear, and we can begin filling in the data. Here’s the key to Manual form editing. Each field on the page can be defined as requiring a “Value” (this can be any data required on the page!), or the specially-designated “Login” and “Password” fields. (A page can have no more than one unique Login, and also no more than one unique Password. When multiple Login fields or multiple Password fields appear on a page, Sticky Password will populate the Login and Password saved for that account into all appropriate fields.) Using this Manual form edit, you are able to define each field manually using the buttons in the Assign selected field to: section at the top of the Manual form edit dialog. In the bottom section, you’ll see the FileZilla login form. 1. We can begin with Host field (identified as Edit 1). In the Value column click, in the row labeled Edit 1 the upper part of window to enter the host name. In this example, I’ll use ftp.something.com, but you should enter the address you’ll be logging into in this field. 2. Verify that the checkbox is checked. Only the fields with a checked checkbox will be autofilled. 3. Click the Value button for this field. Note that the special fields designated as Login, Password and Sign-in button are automatically checked! If you want to enter value for the Port field (identified as Edit 3). Simply click in the Value column of the row labeled Edit 3, and enter your value. Don’t forget check the checkbox (2.) and verify that you’ve clicked the Value button (3.) for this field. MFEA-5Once you’ve entered all the information you need, click OK to continue. MFEA-6Click Save. MFEApp7OpravaNow you’re all set to autofill applications with multiple fields. Sticky Password also allows you to have automatic logins for websites that requires one or more fields in addition to your login and password, as well as sites that ask for atypical or unusual data.

Of course, the Sticky Password extension is available and ready for you. If you are using Sticky Password on an earlier version of Chrome (pre 33.x) and you upgrade to the latest version of Chrome, you will be prompted to download the newest Sticky Password extension. (Depending on how many Chrome extensions you are using, it is very likely that you will be prompted to update other extensions, too.) Simply follow the steps below to install the Sticky Password extension. In some instances, the new installation of Chrome may require that you download the extension from the Google Web Store, in which case, Sticky Password will open the Web Store page and guide you to the Sticky Password extension. Chrome-UpdatesTo ensure that Sticky Password works correctly with Google Chrome running on your PC, make sure that your installation of Sticky Password is up to date. To check your version of Sticky Password, right click on the Sticky Password icon in the systray at the bottom of your monitor: in the menu, click on “Help” and then “Check for Updates”. The popup dialog will tell you if there is a more recent update available. The latest versions of Google Chrome are supported by Sticky Password 7 and Sticky Password 6. If you are using Sticky Password 5 or an earlier version of Sticky Password, you’ll need to upgrade to the latest version of Sticky Password. To get a discount on your upgrade to the latest version of Sticky Password, enter your License Key in the online upgrade form.

Installing the Sticky Password extension for Google Chrome

Sticky Password automatically attempts to install the new extension to your browser when you install Sticky Password. During the installation, you’ll see the following dialog. Click “Add” in order to install the extension for Google Chrome. Chrome1 The next time you navigate to the Extensions page in the Google Chrome menu (under Tools – Extensions), Chrome2 you'll see that the new Sticky Password autofill engine has been installed and is enabled in your browser. Chrome3 If you are using the latest version of Sticky Password and it doesn’t seem to be working correctly with your Google Chrome browser, please try the following: 1) Open the Google Chrome menu located in the upper right corner of the browser and select Tools - Extensions. Chrome2 2) Find and delete the Sticky Password Autofill engine extension on this tab by clicking on the garbage can to remove from chrome. If the extension is not listed, then continue to step 4 to install the Sticky Password extension. Chrome4 3) Confirm removal by clicking Remove. Chrome4b 4) Navigate to the main Sticky Password user interface window. Chrome5 5) Click the Menu button and select Settings. Chrome6 6) Click the Supported browsers tab and check if Google Chrome is listed as "Installed". If it is not installed, simply install it by pressing the "Install" button. If it is already installed, uninstall it by pressing the "Uninstall" button and then reinstall it by pressing the "Install" button". Chrome7 After the autofill plug-in has been installed, click OK  and then Add when prompted. Chrome7aChrome7bTrouble shooting: Google Chrome sometimes leaves some chrome.exe processes open even when all the Google Chrome windows have been closed. Because of this, Sticky Password (and other programs) may not be able to install the necessary extension. If you are experiencing this problem, open the Windows Task manager (you can use the key combination Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and close all the chrome.exe processes on the Processes tab (by clicking ‘End Process’ for each chrome process) before attempting to install the extension again. Chrome8 If you have any problems, contact us through the customer support contact form.   ]]>
2339 Login Automatically Even on Unusual Web Pages 2014-06-24 08:55:16 login-automatically-even-on-unusual-web-pages 11 Gabriela Jordánová Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ Tutorial-Manual-Settings-Web-PagesWith Sticky Password, it's easy to log in to even strange and unique online login forms. In today’s tutorial, I’ll show you how to set up your automatic logins for websites that require one or more fields in addition to your login and password, as well as sites that ask for atypical or unusual data. (Banks and other financial institutions often require additional data on their login pages.) For this lesson, we’re going to take a look at the U.S. Electronic Federal Tax Payment System website. The link to their login page is https://www.eftps.com/eftps/login/loginInitial. Here, you’ll see a nice example of a login form with multiple fields: in addition to the PIN (which is what they call their login) and password, the page requires that the visitor also enter an Employer ID Number (EIN) or a Social Security Number (SSN). I’ll walk you through creating a new account for this login form. (Note that this is the login page. For the purposes of this tutorial, we’ll take for granted that we’ve already enrolled and are working with a valid account.) We’ll start by leaving the form empty and clicking the Caption Button - Web Accounts - Add Account. MFE-1Sticky Password will prompt you to save a new Account. Enter the PIN and Password that you created when you enrolled. Click Add New Account & Edit. MFE-2 Click the Settings icon in the top right corner to open the Settings menu. MFE3-b Click Define settings manually. MFE4-b The Manual form edit dialog window will appear. In the bottom section, you'll see the login form with all the various fields on the page.

1. You can enter the values directly into web form. In this example, this would be your EIN or SSN, plus the PIN and the Password.

Just above this section, you’ll see listed all of the fields on the page that can be filled in.

2. Alternatively, instead of filling in your data as in bullet 1, above, you can edit any of the fields in this section.

Here’s the key to Manual form editing. Each field on the page can be defined as requiring a “Value” (this can be any data!), or the specially-designated “Login” and “Password” fields. (A page can have no more than one unique Login, and also no more than one unique Password. When multiple Login fields or multiple Password fields appear on a page, Sticky Password will populate the Login and Password saved for that account into all appropriate fields.) Using this Manual form edit, you are able to define each field manually using the buttons in the Assign selected field to: section at the top.

3. In order to have Sticky Password automatically fill in additional fields, all you need to do is to enter the values, and then click on Value for that field. You can also (re-)define the field that you’d like your Login or Password to be used in: simply select Login or Password.

Of course, you can edit your Login and Password whenever you need to directly in the Account. MFE-5Now we’ll fill in the rest of the data for the login page in our example. Let's start filling out the multiple fields on the login form:

1. Place the cursor into the first field. Enter the first value, e.g. “44”. As I already mentioned, you can also enter the value directly in the upper part of window in the Value column in the highlighted row.

2. Click the Value button for this field.

3. Verify, that the checkbox is checked. Only the fields with a checked checkbox will be autofilled.

Note that the special fields designated as Login, Password and Sign-in button are automatically checked! MFE-6 Continue to all the other fields, entering the required values wherever necessary. Verify that the appropriate checkboxes are checked. Then click OK to continue. MFE-7Click Save. MFE8-b That’s it - you’re all set. The next time you visit this webpage (https://www.eftps.com/eftps/login/loginInitial), Sticky Password will automatically fill in the necessary fields on the login form and you’ll be signed-in automatically.   ]]>
2297 Quick Access to your Favorites 2014-06-17 12:40:56 quick-access-to-your-favorites 11 Gabriela Jordánová Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ fb-post28Are you taking advantage of all that the Quick Access tab has to offer? Not yet? Well, you should :-) because launching Accounts, opening Bookmarks and displaying Secure Memos is now even easier. If you’ve been using Sticky Password for a while, you know that the websites and links you use most in Sticky Password also appear in the Quick Access menu for easy use. With the release of Sticky Password build 7.0.6.x (released May 27, 2014), you can now also flag specific websites, App Accounts, Bookmarks and Secure Memos as favorites and have them appear in your Quick Access menu.

Where can I find the Quick Access tab?

Open the Sticky Password main window by clicking the systray icon in the lower right corner and selecting Open Sticky Password. Fav-1 The Quick Access tab is the first tab on the left side panel. When you first use Sticky Password, the field will empty – just waiting for you to begin. In this tutorial, I’ll start with a clean slate to show you how it works. Fav-2 There are two convenient ways for flagging Accounts, Bookmarks and Secure Memo as favorites. The first way is automatic. Sticky Password recognizes the websites and links that you use most often and it simply adds them to your Quick Access list. For example, I use my Facebook account every day (I use it a lot – more often than other accounts), and so my Facebook account appears in my Quick Access list. Fav-3 We’ve just added a new way (Sticky Password build 7.0.6.x and higher). Now you can also flag a websites and app accounts (as well as Bookmarks and Secure Memos) as  Favorites. It’s easy! Simply select the account that you would like to add to your Quick Access list: click the pencil symbol and select Make Favorite. Fav-4 When you flag an account manually, a small yellow star appears next to your new Favorite Account. Fav-5

Removing a Favorite tag from an Account

Of course, you can also remove a ‘Favorite’ tag. This applies to both automatically and manually added Accounts, Bookmarks and Secure Memos that appear in the Quick Access section. Click on the Quick Access tab. Select the Account you want to remove from Favorites: click the pencil symbol and select Remove from favorites. Fav-6 Now, you can quickly launch your Favorite Accounts, Bookmarks and Secure Memos from the Caption Button in your favorite browser, Fav-7 or from the systray menu. Fav-8 Happy “Favoriting”! :-)       ]]>
2230 3 Phishy Things to Watch Out For 2014-06-10 12:15:45 3-phishy-things-to-watch-out-for 11 Gabriela Jordánová Passwords & Security https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/password-security/ Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ The key to protecting yourself from phishing attacks and email scams is to recognize the elements used to trap you. 3 Phishy Things to Watch Out ForPhishing is the use of social engineering on the Internet that tries to get you to click on links or enter your personal credentials like passwords, bank or credit card details, or other personal data. Basically, it’s bad guys trying to trick or con you to give them your confidential information. In my tutorial last week, I covered the 3 Keys to Protect Yourself From Phishing Attacks. I shared the secrets to help you get in the right mindset the next time you receive a suspicious email. After reading part one of this series on phishing:
  • You know that email is not a real-time communication tool, so you don’t have to rush to click on any of the links. You can take your time to convince yourself this is a legitimate email from your bank.
  • You know that major organizations don’t make mistakes in the material they send to their customers. You haven’t noticed any branding mistakes or typos in the text, and so you’re ready to move on to the next step.
  • You know that your bank wants to hear from you when it comes to security. If anything about the email doesn’t look right to you, you won’t hesitate to call them instead of clicking on any of the links.
If you keep the above in mind, you’ll be in great shape to not get caught on the hooks that are used in phishing emails to catch unsuspecting people. Now, let’s take a look at a couple of actual of phishing examples that the bad guys use to snare people. First things first, there was nothing in the sender or subject lines to tip you off that this was a phishing scam, so you clicked on the email from your bank or corporation – well, at least it looks like it’s from a legitimate corporation.

Various and sundry email addresses.

One of the telltale signs of a phishing attack is when your bank doesn't know your name! When you receive an email addressed to undisclosed recipients or unknown, yet it demands action in order for your account to not be closed, then something is wrong. Phishing-recipients Another sign of phishing attacks is that they often include multiple email addresses with different domains within a single email. Take a close look at the domains of the email addresses and you’ll notice that they often don’t match that of the organization they claim to be from. That’s a sure give-away that something phishy is going on. For example, emails from Target will be sent from the target.com domain and not from target.bfio.com. Another thing you’ll see that should set the alarm bells off in your head is the use of free email addresses in emails that are supposedly from major corporations. Phishing-email-address You can be sure that correspondence from a major company will NEVER include a yahoo.com, Hotmail.com or other free email service.

Links. Links. Links.

We’ve all grown so used to clicking on links on websites and emails, that it’s pretty easy for the bad guys to take advantage of our trust. Most people instinctively click on links because they expect that the link will take them to a continuation of what they were reading, pertinent information, or some other desirable website. Just like false or fake emails used in phishing attacks, the bad guys use links to mislead you. They’ll mask the links a bit in order to conceal their malicious intent, but it takes only a little effort to expose most fake links.
  • Links that look like they go to the real web site, but don't. Lots of times, you'll see a link in the text that looks legitimate, but when you hover your mouse over it - without clicking! - and check the real address, you'll see that they are sending you to a different address. If you see any difference between the link in the text of the email and the url when you hover over it, then don't click on it.
  • Links that begin with an IP addresses. Most major companies don't use IP addresses in their links.
  • Links that download executable files to your computer. It would be unusual for a major company to send you a file in this way.
  • Legitimate companies will use secure HTTPS connections when requesting any personal information. If you don't see HTTPS, then you should be suspicious.
Phishing-hover Make sure to check the links.

Threats

Don’t be intimidated by threats that are part of almost all phishing attempts. The bad guys use threats to make you nervous and uncomfortable to get you to click on one of the links that is actually a trap. They need you to feel under pressure to act now. Typical threats include:

Your service could be suspended!

Your online account is locked

Helpdesk – Urgent Notification!

Your Account has been Terminated

 Phishing-threats Whenever you receive an email threat or demand for you to act immediately in order to keep your account active, or to stop some action against you – STOP before you click on anything. Call the number on their website. If this really is a legitimate notice from your bank, then it’s likely that talking with someone on the phone is the best way to clear up a problem that involves your account being closed. If it’s not legitimate, then calling the bank can save you money and even your identity. The main thing is that if at any point, you have any doubts about the veracity of the email, then call the bank or company that is claiming to have sent the email.

When it comes to security, your bank wants to hear from you!

2177 3 Keys to Protect Yourself From Phishing Attacks 2014-06-03 13:36:52 3-keys-to-protect-yourself-from-phishing-attacks 11 Gabriela Jordánová Passwords & Security https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/password-security/ Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Phishing 1You open up your inbox and there’s an email from a bank. Sometimes it’s your bank, sometimes it’s a bank you’ve never heard. Sometimes it’s from a really big company like PayPal that the whole world has heard of, so it must be important! The subject line is something like: Problem with your account, rectify now We’ve all been there, but not everyone reacts the same way. How do you react? In part 1 of this tutorial about phishing scams, I'll show you how to react to an email that may be a phishing attack.

Phishing - the practice of using fraudulent e-mails and copies of legitimate websites to extract financial data from computer users for purposes of identity theft

(from our friends at TheFreeDictionary.com)

The first and most important key is to realize that nothing via email needs an immediate response.

Even though most of us have gotten used to trying to respond immediately, email is NOT a real-time communication tool. If you keep that in your mind, then you are less likely to start clicking away on links that might lead you and your bank details into the bad guys’ dungeon (where it’s very dark and creepy). Now that you know that it doesn’t require a knee-jerk reaction, you can take your time to think about what you are going to do. I’ll cover the easy category first: if you get an email from a bank where you don’t have an account asking you to ‘update your information’, then delete it immediately. Earn a couple of bonus points by adding the email address to the spam folder of your email client. (I know, right – who would have thought it could be that easy to avoid such a big risk!? Very cool!) The second category includes email that claims to be from your bank or company that you do business with (like Amazon or eBay, etc.), but comes unexpectedly, or asks for information that doesn’t make sense. For example, if you receive an email to confirm personal data for ‘your debit card’ – when you don’t have a debit card with that bank, then it’s not a legitimate message from your bank. (A recent telephone hoax asked you to respond to update the details of your debit card. Everyone who received the call who did not have a debit card should have hung up as soon as they heard the message!) Don’t click any of the links in the email. Open up a browser window and go to the company’s website. Call the number you find there to let them know about the fraudulent email. If they confirm that they sent it, then provide the details they need over the phone – and let them know that you are displeased that they are sending suspicious emails!

That brings us nicely to the second key: your bank wants you to call them!

They would much rather hear from you each time they sent you an email, then have to deal with the fallout of their clients clicking away on phishing emails. This applies to any company that you do business with: call the company at the number on their website whenever you are unsure about anything in an email.

The third key to protecting yourself from a phishing scam is that banks and major organizations do not make mistakes in emails or written communication.

Every bit of communication a legitimate company puts out is marketing. There are teams of people checking everything that goes out to their customers. Before an official notice is sent by a corporation, it is read and reread by the marketing and legal folks to make sure they aren’t saying anything wrong and that there are no mistakes. Logos and taglines and formal advertising items will NEVER be incorrect. Millions and millions of dollars are spent by corporations every year making sure that the image we have of them is perfect. So, if you see a logo or branding that has ANYTHING wrong on it – the chances are very high that it’s fake. Don’t click on links from fakes and frauds. When you get down to it, if you see anything that you think is suspicious: call, don’t click! (They have operators on the line waiting for your call!) If you suspect something is a phishing attack, then check out snopes.com. It’s one of my favorite resources for checking if something is a known Phishing scam. Next week, in 3 Phishy Things to Watch Out For (part 2 of this tutorial), I’ll show you how to recognize suspicious elements in phishing emails. ]]>

Since PayPal is a subsidiary of eBay, it's probable that the recent spate of PayPal phishing attacks is related to the recent attack on eBay. Over the past few weeks - roughly the timeline that eBay announced that they were victims of the hack – PayPal clients have been receiving emails with the subject “View your recent activity”. The suspect email comes from paypal@e.paypal.com Here are two examples of the PayPal phishing scam emails: PP-1 If you have received one of these or a similar email, and entered your login information, your login and password are unfortunately probably in the hands of hackers! Contact PayPal right away.

What to do if you receive a suspicious email from a bank or one of your vendors?

A suspicious email is anything that catches your eye as being not quite right. It can be a simple typo or something wrong with the logo, or very often, several strange email addresses in a single email. Not all phishing attempts are suspicious looking, but many are. Be sure to look over any email that asks you to click on a link in order to make changes to your account – especially, when the email was not prompted by you, or it came without other prior notice from your bank.
  • Do not click on any of the buttons and links in the email.
  • If the suspicious email is from your bank or a company that you deal with personally, then call them on the number they have posted on their public website to find out if they really sent the email.
  • If the suspicious email is from a bank that you do not do business with, then flag the sender as spam and delete the email immediately.
  • Don’t be shy about telling your friends about that phishing attempt that caught your eye: when it comes to security, awareness goes a long way to protecting yourself!

 For the PayPal phishing email:

  • Do not click on any of the buttons and links in the email.
  • Flag paypal@e.paypal.com as spam so your email account will spot future emails from this address and will send them it directly to the spam folder.
  • Forward the phishing email to spoof@paypal.com, where PayPal handles suspicious emails.
Most important is to take the same action that was recommended following the recent attack on eBay: change your password - on PayPal! I'll walk you through it step-by-step below. You can also watch the video.

How to change your PayPal password? It’s easy with Sticky Password.

Go to www.paypal.com and sign in to your account. Click Profile. PP-2Click Change in the password row. PP-3 Select the checkbox next to the Password and click Edit. PP-4 Your Current Password will be prefilled by Sticky Password. Enter your new password: for increased safety, we recommend using the password generator. Click in the New password field and Sticky Password will offer to generate a strong password for you. Click Generate password. PP-5 Set the desired length (we recommend at least 8 characters, but the longer the better) and any additional options you’d like for your new password, click Generate and then click Use this password. PP-6 Both password fields will be automatically filled in with your new strong password. Click Save. PP-7 Sticky Password will prompt you to save your new changed password. Click Change password. PP-8 That’s it! Your PayPal password has been successfully changed and you can relax and have the peace of mind to watch your favorite movie  or go out to get some fresh air.   ]]>

Sticky Password also uses your StickyID and Master Password when connecting to Sticky Password cloud storage when syncing and backing up your database. NOTE: It is not possible to access your encrypted Sticky Password database through your StickyAccount. Your password database is accessible only to you, and only through one of your trusted devices. The direct link to the StickyAccount login page can be found here. It’s also easily accessible from the homepage of our website (www.stickypassword.com): click on Sign in to Sticky Account at the top of the page.   web

PortalSettingsOverview Select the Settings tab to get to your account information. On this page, you can add an alternative e-mail, restore your database, and more. 1. Your StickyID is the email address that is associated with your StickyAccount. Your StickyID and your Master Password are the authentication credentials for your StickyAccount. 2. Alternative e-mail. OPTIONAL. Enter an e-mail address here only if you prefer to have all communication - including one-time PINs - associated with your StickyAccount sent to an e-mail address different from your StickyID e-mail address. When you enter an email address here, all communication will be sent to the alternate address, and NO communication will be sent to your StickyID email. Click Change to add or change an e-mail address. 3. Authorization. Three options are available. - Authorize any device: this is the default option. Any device/browser with the correct StickyAccount credentials may synchronize databases and access your StickyAccount. No secondary authentication is required when adding a device to your StickyAccount. - One-time PIN: when selecting this authorization method, a PIN will be sent to your StickyID (e-mail address) or Alternative e-mail (if specified) whenever a request to add a device to your StickyAccount is made. In order for the device to be added to the trusted devices list, the PIN must be entered along with your StickyAccount credentials. - No new devices: When you select this setting, only those devices already listed in your Trusted Devices are allowed to connect to your StickyAccount.

Click the down arrow to select the cloud database that you would like to use for the backup and then click Restore. 5. Delete all cloud data. This option deletes all your data (passwords, Identities, logins, Secure Memos) from your cloud database. NOTE: this does not delete the data stored in Sticky Password on your devices. After deleting your cloud data, you will be able to backup and sync the device database to the cloud. 6. Delete this account.This option deletes your entire StickyAccount. In addition to all your data (passwords, Identities, logins, Secure Memos, etc.), your StickyAccount will also be deleted.

1907 Creating A StickyAccount for Online Synchronization 2014-05-13 03:11:28 creating-a-stickyaccount-for-online-synchronization 11 Gabriela Jordánová Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ The following tutorial applies to Sticky Password 7. Your StickyAccount allows you to safely and securely store your passwords and other data in the cloud using Sticky Password Cloud Storage. Of course, your passwords are always encrypted and protected. Because your data is no one's business but your own, your Master Password is not stored in any database and is never transmitted over the Internet, which means that only YOU can access your passwords. To learn more about the strong security measures used by Sticky Password to ensure that your data is always secure, please download and read our White Paper: The Security Behind Sticky Password 7.) With a StickyAccount, you’ll now be able to: - safely back up your passwords for whenever you need to restore your password database, or when you want to install Sticky Password on a new or additional PC or device. - sync your passwords and keep them up-to-date on all your devices (Windows PC, and Android and iPhone (iOS). There are two ways to create your StickyAccount to enable online synchronization. 1- You can create a StickyAccount using the connection wizard during the Sticky Password installation. When prompted, enter your e-mail address (we call it your Sticky ID) and a password for your new StickyAccount (we call it your StickyPass). Re-enter your StickyPass and click Create. Note that your StickyPass is NOT your Master Password that you use to unlock Sticky Password. Your StickyPass is used to access your StickyAccount when you need to add or remove an additional device, and other maintenance of your account. StickyAccount 2- If you decided to skip the above step when you installed Sticky Password, don't worry - you can create your StickyAccount right from Sticky Password. Simply unlock Sticky Password, and click 'Enable online sync' in the Main window to launch the connection wizard to create your StickyAccount. StickyAccount When prompted, enter your e-mail address (we call it your Sticky ID) and a password for your new StickyAccount (we call it your StickyPass). Re-enter your StickyPass and click Create. Note that your StickyPass is NOT your Master Password that you use to unlock Sticky Password. Your StickyPass is used to access your StickyAccount when you need to add or remove an additional device, and other maintenance of your account.

1437 Importing Firefox Passwords into Sticky Password 2014-04-22 08:21:47 importing-firefox-passwords-into-sticky-password 11 Gabriela Jordánová Tutorials & Tricks https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/ Windows https://www.stickypassword.com/blog/category/tutorials_tricks/windows/ Open Sticky Password.

In the Main User Interface window click Menu in the top right corner. Select Import.

Now click Supported browsers and click Next.

Select Mozilla Firefox and click Next.

That's it - your passwords and bookmarks have been successfully imported to Sticky Password. Click Close to exit the confirmation dialog.

Your logins and passwords are now safely stored in Sticky Password. To ensure that no one can access your web accounts by misusing the passwords still in the browser, you can delete all the passwords saved in Firefox. Click the main Firefox menu in the top left-hand corner of your monitor and choose Options, select Options in the drop down menu, click on the Security tab, then click Saved Passwords and Remove All. Once you are using Sticky Password, be sure to uncheck the Remember passwords for sites box in Firefox’s Security tab. This will ensure that you don’t accidentally save any more unsecure passwords in Firefox.

If you do decide to have one or more passwords in Firefox, then here's a tip for adding extra security to a password list and editing passwords in Firefox. While Firefox does have a master password option to protect your sensitive data, a browser password is a small hurdle for someone who is determined to sneakily get the password information from your browser, but at least it's better than the zero security options you'll find for passwords saved in Chrome. Here's how to add a master password and manage your saved passwords in Firefox. Using Sticky Password allows you to use your favorite browser while keeping your passwords and logins very secure! Managing passwords in Firefox is relatively easy, but there are very limited editing options. For example, when you make a typo, your only option is to delete the saved password and start again. Start by clicking the main Firefox menu at the top left-hand corner and choose Options. In the menu, choose...Options! (No points for creative menu systems, Firefox. :-) )

Select the Security tab and then Click the Saved Passwords button and enter your master password -- if you have one. If you don't have a master password* set for Firefox's sensitive data storage, now would be a good time to add one! (*This is NOT your Sticky Password Master Password! This is a password that is specific to Firefox.)

Now, if you want to view a password, select the web site in the list and click the Show passwords button. You'll have to enter the Firefox master password again.
