Sticky Password lets you store an unlimited amount of passwords across all your devices, so you never have to forget a password again. 

Categories

Interface

Winner: LastPass

Sticky Password has an amazingly simple interface. It displays your saved passwords in a list format, and you can see the information for that entry just by clicking on it. LastPass, on the other hand, utilizes a tile-like layout, which is ultimately more efficient. LastPass also offers more opportunities to subcategorize into different folders and categories, and automatically includes the logo for each entry on their respective tiles.

Security

Winner: LastPass

Sticky Password definitely falls behind in the security category when compared to LastPass. While it does offer two-factor authentication, it doesn’t offer a security test feature. It does tell you if your password is weak, normal, or strong as you’re adding an entry to your password vault. LastPass offers a comprehensive security test feature that generates a detailed report of your passwords, including which are weak, old, duplicate, or compromised. It also prompts you to take action to change those passwords.

For Families

Winner: LastPass

Sticky Password does not offer a family-specific version of its software. LastPass, however, offers LastPass Family, which allows you to create one vault for an entire family. Each family member has access to the vault using their personal email, but one designated “family manager” decides which member can view certain folders and information. For example, you can allow your kids to view the Netflix password, but deny them access to your credit card information.

For Businesses

Winner: LastPass

Sticky Password does not have a business-specific version of their software. LastPass, however, offers two business options: LastPass Teams, for smaller businesses or inter-departmental use, and LastPass Enterprise, for larger businesses. Both versions allow companies to share information securely among employees and allow a designated administrator to manage employee permissions.

Pricing

Winner: Tie

Both LastPass and Sticky Password are free for the most basic version. The premium version of LastPass costs $2/month, whereas Sticky Password premium costs $30/year, which comes out to about $2.50/month. You can also buy a lifetime license for Sticky Password for $150.

Mobile App

Winner: LastPass

The LastPass mobile app and Sticky Password mobile app are actually pretty similar when it comes to functionality and ease of use. LastPass ultimately wins this category for automatically including the logos for each entry in your password vault. Also, the color scheme in the Sticky Password app is white-on-blue and lime green, which users could potentially find irritating.

Who LastPass Might Be Better For:

  • Users who want more comprehensive security features
  • Businesses who want a password manager specifically designed for employee use
  • Families who want a password manager specifically designed for family use

Who Sticky Password Might Be Better For:

Conclusion

Sticky Password is overall an efficient, easy to use password manager, but LastPass is the better choice for most users. The main advantage of LastPass is its comprehensive security features, like the security test feature that provides a detailed analysis of all your passwords. Ultimately, you’re using a password manager to keep your passwords safe, so security is most likely going to be high on your priority list. For families and businesses, LastPass is ideal because it has software designed specifically for those uses.

A feature unique to Sticky Password is that if you purchase the premium version, part of your purchase will go to a non-profit organization called the Save the Manatee Club. If you happen to care deeply about manatees, or you prefer the Sticky Password interface, Sticky Password is a great option. Otherwise, LastPass is probably your best bet.

  1. You did not mention “syncing”. The free version of LastPass includes syncing across all your devices, whereas the free version of Sticky Password does not.
