Why your Master Password is so important?

Your Master Password is the only password you have to remember. It’s the password you use to protect all your passwords stored in your encrypted database, as well as to authenticate the connection between Sticky Password and your cloud account. Only YOU know your Master Password.

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 when you need to.
