Passwords are the most popular form of authentication and they are often the only barrier between your personal information and a malicious person trying to steal it. The safest password technique is to create a new, strong password for each account.

Of course, it would be inefficient to try to remember so many different passwords. We are proud to offer you Sticky Password Manager - a program designed to protect your passwords and provide effortless, authorized, access to them.

1. Sticky Password holds all your passwords. It seems that a day doesn’t go by that we don’t have to create a login and password for a new website or application. Remembering them all is impossible, and writing them down on a piece of paper or in a text file saved on your computer desktop is a security risk. Sticky Password stores all of your passwords in an encrypted file on your computer to which only you have the Master Password – the only password that you’ll have to remember from now on.
2. More secure passwords. Names of pets, birthdays and the nicknames of your children are examples of words that should never be used as passwords! As a general rule, if you can remember your passwords, then someone can probably guess them. With Sticky Password, you’ll be able to take advantage of the built-in password generator that not only creates strong passwords (combinations of various lengths of letters and special characters that are nearly impossible to guess), but also stores them safely where no one but you can get to them. Your passwords will be much stronger, and you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that they are securely stored.
3. Protection against phishing. Sticky Password is able to identify exactly the website address (url) that your bank or other secure website should be directed to. You no longer have to worry about being fooled by fake sites that try to trick you by a similar appearance or other phishing gimmicks. Sticky Password will stop any stealthy re-direction and warn you! You’ll enjoy safer access to all your password protected sites knowing that Sticky Password is protecting you.
4. Automatic login and form filling. A big reason to have a password manager is to save yourself the hassle of having to enter your login and password information on all those sites you visit. Sticky Password recognizes your sites and logs you in automatically! In addition, with Sticky Password, you’ll also be able to complete online forms with the click of a button.
