Today, we’ll take a look at Sticky Password preferences on your Mac.
You'll need to be logged in to Sticky Password to access the
preferences menu. Now, click Sticky Password in
the application bar and select Preferences...
The Sticky Password preferences dialog appears. Lets go through the tabs
one by one:
- In the first part of the Account tab, you can see your Account name
(this is your email address, AKA your StickyID), License type and
Alternative email: Enter an e-mail address here
only if you would like to have all communication
- including any one-time PINs - associated with your Sticky Password
Account 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.
- If you click Remove all the stored data, all your data
(passwords, identities, bookmarks, secure memos) will be deleted from your Mac.
Synchronize with cloud every: This option
allows you to set up how often your Sticky Password database will
be synchronized with your encrypted database in the cloud.
This applies only when the Cloud synchronization option
has been selected.
Synchronization: In this section you can set
up your Synchronization preferences. Synchronization between
your various devices is performed either via the secure Sticky
Password cloud or locally via your local Wi-Fi.
Select Cloud synchronization to have your
encrypted database seamlessly and securely synced on all your devices, and
backed up via our secure cloud servers. Sticky Password
always synchronizes and backs up the encrypted database!
Your database is accessible only to you, and is only accessible on your devices.
By selecting Local over Wi-Fi you can sync your devices
with each other using only your local network or Wi-Fi. Syncing takes place
over your Wi-Fi – your encrypted database never goes out to the cloud.
When syncing over Wi-Fi, you'll be prompted to select the authorized device
that you would like to sync with.
By selecting No sync, your encrypted database never
leaves your device.
Here you can install the available autofill plugins for your browsers.
Detailed information about the autofill
plugins can be found in our previous tutorials for
Google Chrome and
Autolock: Here you can set the Autolock feature.
Sticky Password will lock after a set amount of time of inactivity on your Mac.
- By clicking Change Master Password you can change
your Master Password. Note that the next time you access Sticky
Password on other devices, you will use your old password. After
logging in, Sticky Password will be prompt you to enter your new
Master Password the first time it attempts to synchronize the local
database with the database stored in the cloud, after which you'll
continue to use your new Master Password.
Delete password from clipboard after: this option
allows you to set the amount of time after which Sticky Password
automatically deletes from the clipboard any passwords that have been
copied to it by Sticky Password.
That’s all for today, now you are able to change the Sticky Password preferences to suit your needs.
