In my line of work there is a lot of logging in going on. With over 260 sites saved to my list (real number; not exaggerating ;) of those needing a login, you can imagine there is no hope at all in trying to remember these all.
I know this is a common issue; even having a total of 7 or 8 can break one’s spirit when the info gets lost.
The average person’s login list includes at least 2/3 of this list.
• Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail
• Computer Mail Software
• Bank Management
• Domain Management
• ITunes or Google Play
• Amazon and eBay
• Skype, YouTube
• Facebook, Linked in and Twitter
• Firefox or Chrome
• Travel or Hotel site
• PayPal, Loyalty Club
• Wordpress or other Site Admin
What’s more, often what passes as a login pair in one account is unacceptable in another. As an example, one place may allow the * or – symbol where others will allow letters and numbers only.
It’s bad to save these logins using your Chrome, Firefox or Safari browsers.
This is not a secure method. If you're in the unfortunate position of your keystrokes being logged by an intruder, memorized access can still be read. This is just one example that amplifies that the convenience is not worth the risk.
As well, when we get a new computer this information is lost unless we know how to migrate it. So the feeling of helplessness quickly becomes panic.
By now most of us have lost
access to at least one account
thanks to login issues.
So what does a professional suggest when it comes to this problem?
I’ve run the gamut.
Remember; I have over 260 login sets - and use them all in the course of an average week. Anything I consider using must be a fully secure system to-boot.
Enter - Sticky Password.
As a (now 6-year) user of Sticky Password I can say without a doubt my life has been made simpler, wayyyyy less stressful as I've never since lost access to an account.
My favorite features
1. One login to rule them all.
Log into Sticky Password once. Then it uses your stored info until you log out. So when you leave your computer just log out of Sticky Password and no one can access any of your stored accounts.
2. Sticky Password is encrypted. Secure.
Your keystrokes can't be logged ...even if you’re being logged.
3. Sticky Password lets you “peek” at your passwords.
Want to add your email account to your phone? You can peek at the password you have stored. No having to “guess” at it (or at what’s hidden behind those stars that appear when you login using your Outlook).
4. Sticky Password can save any number of logins to a site.
Why is this good? Let’s say you have two Facebook accounts. It will store both and ask you which you want to log in with when you arrive at Facebook.
5. Sticky Password let’s you store private notes.
For example, the combination to a safe, or PIN for your Hydro account. This note can only be read if you are logged into your Sticky Password software.
6. Install on several machines and sync.
Wohooo! Adding a new login using your PC will automatically update to your laptop or device.
Is Sticky Password expensive?
Not when you consider the deal I
personally negotiated exclusively
for customers of COOLCOM. :)
