Your Master Password is a big part of keeping your passwords safe, so you always want to make sure it's strong and, of course, unique! Let’s take a look at how simple it is to change your Master Password on your Mac.
Your Master Password is the only password you have to remember. It’s the password that is used to protect all your passwords stored in your encrypted database, as well as to authenticate the connection between the Sticky Password application on your devices and your StickyAccount cloud account on our servers. Only YOU know your Master Password.
We at Sticky Password do not have access to your Master Password. For security purposes, your Master Password is not stored anywhere – so we are not able to ‘resend’ it to you, and we cannot ‘reset’ it.
To be able to change your Master Password, make sure that you are online.
Important: If you are using multiple devices – please be aware of the fact that once you have changed your Master Password on one device (the first one), the change will be synchronized to all your online devices. What’s more - the next time you start using the Sticky Password application on any of the other devices, you will be prompted on each device to enter the old Master Password one more time.
Click Sticky Password in the menu bar, and select Preferences… in the dropdown menu.
Click Change in the Master Password section.
First, you’ll need to enter your current Master Password. Then enter your new Master Password, confirm it and click OK.
That’s it! Your Master Password has been successfully changed. Click OK.
If you are using multiple devices, Sticky Password will prompt you to enter your new Master Password the next time you synchronize.
