Categories

Interface

Winner: Password Boss

Both Sticky Password and Password Boss feature a simple, easy-to-use interface. They’re pretty similar in terms of style and functionality, both displaying your saved passwords in a list format. When you click on an entry, the information for it will pop up right next to list. They also both automatically display the logo for the website or application associated with each password, making it easy to locate specific entries quickly. The Password Boss interface is not as sleek as the Sticky Password interface, but it still comes out slightly ahead because it’s more customizable. In Password Boss, you can view your passwords in either a list layout or a tile layout.  

Security

Winner: Sticky Password

Password Boss offers an auto-lock feature and two-factor authentication, but otherwise doesn’t offer much in the way of security. Most notably, it doesn’t offer any kind of feature that shows you how strong your passwords are and which ones need to be changed for maximum security. This is a pretty common feature on a lot of password managers, and an important one, because it helps you stay on top of your passwords and maximizes protection against hackers. Sticky Password doesn’t offer a comprehensive security test feature, but it does go a step beyond Password Boss by telling you if your password is weak as you are entering it into your password vault, which is ultimately better than nothing.

For Families

Winner: Tie

Neither offers a family specific version of their application, however you could potentially use either of them for family use by sharing passwords across multiple accounts.

For Businesses

Winner: Password Boss

Sticky Password does not offer a business-specific version of their software, but Password Boss offers a business version that allows employees to securely share logins. Each team member has a separate business and personal profile, allowing employees to share logins while keeping their personal data private. And unlike the personal version of the application, the business version does have a security score feature that provides reports on both team and individual password strength.

Pricing

Winner: Tie

Both Password Boss and Sticky Password are free to use, with the option to pay for a premium version.

Mobile App

Winner: Sticky Password

Sticky Password and Password Boss both have easy-to-use mobile apps that feature an in-app browser and an intuitive interface. Ultimately, Sticky Password wins this category for offering a free mobile app. While the Password Boss app is free to download, you have to pay for it after the 30-day free trial.

Who Password Boss Might Be Better For:

  • Users who want a more customizable interface
  • Users who want a customizable password generator
  • Users who want a password manager specifically for business use

Conclusion

Sticky Password and Password Boss are very similar. They offer a lot of comparable features, and are both free for the most basic version. The one drawback to Password Boss is its lack of a security test feature. Sticky Password doesn’t offer a security test feature either, but does go a little further than Password Boss by at least telling you if your password is weak as you’re adding it to your password vault.

So if you want a free password manager with decent security features, Sticky Password is likely the better pick. Password Boss is the better option if you want a more customizable interface, or if you want to use a password manager for your business.

  1. I’m wondering whether the database of DataVault can be exported to Sticky Password. If so, how? Any help would be appreciated

    • I believe so! Just export your passwords from DataVault into a csv file and then import them into Sticky Password. I’ve never reviewed DataVault before, so let me know how that works. Thanks for reading!
