Tuesday tutorial Synchronizing Your Data: With Sticky Password, You Decide

A quick note before we get started: regardless of the setting your choose, your encrypted database can only be accessed on your devices – never in the cloud!

Synchronization - the options

  • Cloud sync – allows you to take advantage of the secure Sticky Password cloud solution to sync and backup your passwords and other data you have stored in Sticky Password.

    Your encrypted database is securely backed‑up in the cloud and, as I mentioned above, your database cannot be accessed in the cloud – only on your devices!

  • Local Wi‑Fi sync – a special feature that allows you to sync your devices with each other over your local Wi-Fi network. Syncing takes place over your Wi‑Fi – your encrypted database never goes out to the cloud.

  • No sync – you can also disable sync and your encrypted data never leaves your device(s).

Choosing the right sync option

  • During the First Run Wizard

    You first came across the Sticky Password sync options in the First Run Wizard (during the installation of Sticky Password). You had the option of enabling or disabling the cloud sync. Regardless of the initial selection you made, you can change your mind later.
