Biometrics: fingerprint authentication on your iPhone


Sticky Password supports fingerprint authentication on iOS and Android devices. Now you can unlock your password database on Android and iOS smartphones and tablets that are equipped with a fingerprint scanner.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to set up fingerprint protection for Sticky Password on your iOS device: with just a touch of the Home button, the Touch ID sensor will read your authorized fingerprint and unlock your Sticky Password.

Setting up the Touch ID

First, you have to set up your Touch ID. If you have your Touch ID already set up, you can skip to the second part of this tutorial.

Tap the Settings icon on your iOS device.


Scroll down and tap Touch ID & Passcode.


Tap Add a 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. After the initial scan is completed, you'll be asked to adjust your grip to capture the edges of your fingerprint.

After you set up Touch ID, your fingerprint will be added to the list of fingerprints authorized for your iPhone.


Setting up Sticky Password

Now, let’s add your fingerprint to Sticky Password.

Run Sticky Password. Tap the Settings button in the lower right corner.


Tap App Protection.


Tap Protection type on the next menu.


Select Fingerprint.


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.
