Like all security software (e.g. antivirus), password management software requires ongoing development and frequent updates in order to keep autofill and login functionality up-to-date with all the various websites on the Internet. As sites change because of new technology and functionality, security software developers need to keep up with 3rd party vendors of new browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc.), operating systems (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android), and others. There are also costs associated with maintaining the servers that ensure that millions of users all have access to the latest and greatest software versions for all the supported platforms. These are the main reasons why we use a subscription model that is typical in the security software arena including the area of password management.
For those who do not need the sync feature (the ability to sync your passwords across multiple of your devices via the cloud or your local Wi-Fi), we offer the ability to NOT synchronize. While many users appreciate the convenient secure sharing feature (for example, with family members or colleagues at work) that is available in Sticky Password Premium, not all need this functionality.
If not having these features is sufficient for you, then you can take advantage of Sticky Password Free and enjoy the full functionality of Sticky Password - except syncing and secure sharing - and you will not have to worry about a subscription.
