If you are looking for a password manager that can generate secure passwords, works with many browsers, and comes in a portable version? Look no further, for Sticky Password can do that and more.
Sticky Password stores all your information in an encrypted database locked with your Master Password. If you forget the master password, you cannot access the database or make changes to it.
By default, Sticky Password unlocks your database with a Master Password that you choose. But you can also use a USB device or a Bluetooth device, connecting to the computer with the device will unlock the database.
Let’s take a look at the main features:
(Sorry but I am not going to explain what a password manager does or how do I use it for basic functions like logging into my account.)
The Tray Icon:
Sticky Password’s Tray Icon provides you access to all the settings of the program as well as options to edit your Identities, Manage the password database etc. It is the control panel of Sticky Password.
So most of the features that I am gonna talk about can be accessed by right clicking on the Tray Icon and choosing the appropriate menu item.
Identities and Form-filling:
You can create an identity with your personal details. The next time you want you sign up for a web service you can use the identity and presto, it automatically fills up the form. Saves precious time and mouse clicks. :p
Supported browsers and applications:
Sticky Password can work with several browsers and applications such as FireFox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Yahoo Messenger Skype, etc,. The full list of supported apps/browsers can be found here: http://www.stickypassword.com/support/browsers-application. I tested it with the latest version of Firefox 9.0.1 and it works flawlessly.
If you are worried about keyloggers, you could use this virtual keyboard to protect your login info.
There is also an Anti-spy method which shows several cursors like the one you are using. As you hover the mouse over a key, the duplicate cursors move on different keys, thus confusing anyone who may be spying on you.
Well, it confused even me 🙂 Antispy can be disabled from the General settings menu.
Note: Be advised that this is not a anti-keylogger program, this is just a precautionary method to protect your login info.
Export and Import your Password Database:
Sticky Password can import your password database from popular password managers like Roboform, LastPass, Keepass and from the integrated password managers in Firefox and Internet Explorer.
I am using Sticky Password as a backup to my LastPass Database and it imported the database easily, while offering toÂ replace modified ones.
Backup and Restore:
Sticky Password creates automatic backups of your password database when you modify it, so in case you lose some login infromation you can restore a back from the “Manage Database” option.
Sticky Password has a built-in password gauge, which analyses the strength of your passwords.
It also comes with a password generator which can generate secure passwords for your accounts. It also has an option to clear your clipboard automatically after a defined time, the default is 30 seconds. This is useful incase you copy a password and paste it to login to a website.
Caution: If you use a clipboard manager, make sure you delete the password you copied, because they are designed to allow access to your older clipboard contents.
You can also store your important information like Credit Card details, Driver’s License, etc., securely with this option. I didn’t test this much as I really didn’t have the need to store such information.
Make sure that you have enabled the Master Password option during startup. It is enabled by default, but there is no harm in making sure that it isn’t disabled.
You can do so by checking the Authorization method menu. Otherwise, anyone who has access to your computer can view/edit your database.
Sticky Password comes in a portable version as well. You can also synchronise your database wth the portable version on your USB thumb drive. That’s handy if you like to take all your logins with you and need to remember just one master password.
Sticky Password for iPhone:
If you are an iPhone user, you can benefit from the iPhone app that is free for users of Sticy Password Pro. However you cannot edit your database using the current version.
While browsing their forum, I read that an Android version is in the works 😉
You can find a list of Frequently Asked Questions at: http://www.stickypassword.com/support/faq
They also have some good video tutorials at: http://www.stickypassword.com/support/tutorials-FREE
- Free version available.
- Supports many browsers.
- Good virtual keyboard + anti-spy mode.
- Easy way to Import/Export passwords from other password managers.
- Multiple authorization methods.
- If you forget your master password, there is absolutely no way to retrieve the password or access the protected database.

If you aren’t already using Sticky Password, I recommend you give it a shot.
The free version comes with a few limitations but it is almost as good as the Pro version.

Sticky Password Pro is a fantastic password manager. Please, can I have a license?
I like the fact that Sticky Password works across ALL browser as well as mobile platforms without additional expense.
Â Fabulous FREEBIE: this tool is definitelyÂ the best password manager software along withÂ Roboform.
I would like to grab a license of STICKY PASSWORD PRO because, having an effective PASSWORD MANAGER like this professional application, is nowadays absolutely crucial if you want to avoid being locked out of an account, in case you forget your password, username or credit card number.
And STICKY PASSWORD PRO is right now probably the best password manager on the market for three main reasons:
– because of its full integration with all the major browsers out there, except SAFARI if I’m not wrong
– because of its high SECURITY LEVEL, since it uses a terrific and extremely powerful military-grade security AES database encryption, almost impossible to break !!
– because it will never send out your LOGIN and PASSWORD to fake websites, giving you any chance to be a victim of online phishing scams .
Count me in your amazing contest please!
Hi,Avinash! Had the free version of this – would love to go pro.Here’s hoping!
