Welcome to the First Run Wizard, where we'll walk you through a few important settings!
Choose to create a new account or to connect to an existing one:
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 synchronization lets you have access to your passwords on all your devices!
If you already have a StickyAccount, click I have an Account to enter your StickyAccount authentication credentials – you'll be prompted to enter your StickyID (your email address that you used when you initially set up your account) and your Master Password.
In this example, we’ll look at creating a new StickyAccount..
Enter your email address (your StickyID) and create your Master Password. Your Master Password is the strong password that you will use to lock and unlock Sticky Password and log into your StickyAccount.
Note: your Master Password is the only password you have to remember. You will use it to protect your passwords in your personal encrypted database, and to authenticate the connection between Sticky Password and your cloud account. Only you know your Master Password.
Click Create my Account.
Confirm your Master Password. Tick the check box to confirm that you have read and understand the information about the importance of remembering your Master Password and click Continue.
Choose from one of the following sync options:
Cloud sync is enabled by default – have your encrypted data seamlessly and securely synced on all your devices, and backed up via our secure cloud servers. Your database is accessible only to you, and only on your devices.
When you disable Cloud Sync – your encrypted database never leaves your device. Regardless of the choice you make during the installation, you will be able to manage the settings for syncing your encrypted data later.
Now you can select the browsers you want to use with Sticky Password. (You can add and remove browsers later, too.)
Please note that you'll need to complete the installation of the browser extension(s) in each selected browser. Simply follow the instructions in the newly opened window of your Chrome and/or Firefox. You can also check out our tutorials for Chrome and Firefox.
You’re all set!
