Your Master Password is a big part of keeping your passwords safe, so it’s important that you make sure it’s strong – and, of course, unique! I’ll show you how simple it is to change your Master Password on your Windows computer.
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 it when you need to.
How to change your Master Password?
In the Sticky Password main window, click Menu in the upper right corner and select Settings.
Click the Security tab.
Click Change Password.
First, you’ll need to enter your Current Master Password. After that, enter your New Master Password and confirm it. Click OK.
Click Save to save your changes before leaving the Settings menu.
That’s it! Your Master Password has been successfully changed. If you are using multiple devices, Sticky Password will prompt you to enter your new Master Password the next time you synchronize.
