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



Winner: Sticky Password

Sticky Password has a cleaner, more intuitive interface than LogMeOnce. The LogMeOnce interface is a little cluttered and outdated looking. It includes some bright colors, animations, and crazy fonts that are fun…but can definitely be a little distracting. Sticky Password is simple and much more intuitive. It neatly displays all of your saved passwords in a list format and gives you options to compartmentalize your data.


Winner: LogMeOnce

Neither LogMeOnce nor Sticky Password offers a full security test feature that analyzes all of your saved passwords. Sticky Password does offer a less comprehensive version of this feature by telling you if your password is weak, normal, or strong whenever you enter a new password into your vault.

But LogMeOnce offers a host of other security features that you won’t find elsewhere, including an alternative login option that uses photo verification instead of a master password. The application snaps a photo of you on your computer and sends it to your phone. From there, you will be able to confirm your identity and access your passwords on your computer. This option is extreme, but it adds a layer of security beyond password protection alone. It also employs two-factor authentication by default, since you have to have access to another device in order to login. LogMeOnce also offers an anti-hacker feature called “mugshot,” which takes a photo of the hacker and shows the date, time, and geolocation of the hack, as well as the IP address of the hacker. Again, these features are a little extreme and probably not necessary, but if you’re big on security, LogMeOnce definitely offers more than Sticky Password.

For Families

Winner: Sticky Password

Neither Sticky Password nor LogMeOnce offers a family-specific version of their application. However, you could potentially use Sticky Password for families by sharing information between multiple accounts. You could also do this in LogMeOnce, but the Sticky Password interface is simpler and probably easier for multiple family members to navigate.

For Businesses

Winner: LogMeOnce

Sticky Password does not have a business specific version of the application, but LogMeOnce does. It offers the same photo verification login feature as the regular application, but in the business application, a central administrator verifies the identification of each employee. It also allows employees to create two, distinct, encrypted vaults, one for personal use and one for business use, allowing them to safely use their own device for business.


Winner: Free

Both Sticky Password and LogMeOnce are free to use, and both offer a paid premium version as well. Sticky Password also offers a lifetime license option for a one-time payment.

Mobile App

Winner: LogMeOnce

A mobile app is an ideal platform for the LogMeOnce photo verification feature, since it’s so easy to snap a photo of yourself on a smartphone. Sticky Password also has a solid mobile app, but LogMeOnce comes out ahead in the mobile category for the photo login feature.

Who LogMeOnce Might Be Better For:

  • Users who might prefer the photo verification over a password login, or want both options
  • Users who want extreme security features
  • Users who don’t mind a more eccentric looking interface

Who Sticky Password Might Be Better For:

Although they’re split pretty evenly as winners in the above categories, LogMeOnce and Sticky Password are very different in terms of features and functionality, and it really depends on what you’re looking for in a password manager if you’re deciding between the two. If you want the most extreme security, LogMeOnce is definitely the better option, offering the photo-verification login, a hacker “mugshot” feature, and in-depth security reporting.

The biggest drawback to LogMeOnce, however, is its clunky interface. If you want something that’s simple, intuitive, and easy to use, Sticky Password is the better option. It’s interface is clean and efficient, and it’s also a better option for users who are new to password managers.
