Biometrics: fingerprint authentication on your Android


Sticky Password supports fingerprint on Android devices. You can unlock your password database on Android smartphones and tablets using your fingerprint.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to set up fingerprint authentication for unlocking Sticky Password on your Android device.

Setting up your fingerprint

First — if you already haven’t done it — you have to set up your fingerprint. If you have your fingerprint already set up, you can skip to the second part of this tutorial.

Note: The following example is for a Samsung device and the setting may vary depending on the device brand or model:

  1. Tap the Settings icon on your Android device and tap Lock screen and security.

  2. Scroll down and tap Screen lock type.

  3. Add your fingerprint — follow the instructions on your screen and go through the wizard. You’ll be prompted to lift and rest your finger on the home button several times. Then your fingerprint will be added to the list of fingerprints authorized for your Android device.

Setting up Sticky Password to work with your fingerprint

Now, let’s set up Sticky Password to use fingerprint authentication for unlock.

  1. Run Sticky Password. Tap the Menu button in the top left corner.

  2. Tap Settings.

  3. Tap App Protection.

  4. Enter your Master Password and tap Unlock.

  5. Tap Protection type.

  6. Select Fingerprint.

  7. Tap OK.

  8. You’re all set! Now you can unlock Sticky Password using your fingerprint.

    Note: To unlock Sticky Password with your Master Password instead of your fingerprint, simply tap Cancel when prompted.
