The Local sync option allows you to synchronize your encrypted Sticky Password database between any two of your devices over your local Wi-Fi or other local network (wired LAN).
Local sync is supported on devices that have Sticky Password installed on them: computers, smartphones and tablets running Windows, macOS, Android or iOS.

If this is the first time you’ll be synchronizing with the selected device, a dialog will appear with a PIN that you’ll need to enter in the other device – in this example, this is our Android device. For security purposes, the PIN needs to be entered in the target device within 30 seconds, or you will have to generate a new PIN on your PC.
Enter the PIN when prompted on your Android device and tap OK.
