Sticky Password is using the second factor as an added element for encrypting each user's data. This strengthens the data protection exponentially.
(PRWEB) October 11, 2016
Sticky Password, a leading password management software provider, today announced that it is introducing two-factor authentication (2FA) to its popular award-winning password manager available immediately at http://www.stickypassword.com, and the Google Play and iTunes app stores.
“In order to provide additional security for our users and their data, we’re introducing two-factor authentication access to our product line” said Petr Bilek, CEO of Sticky Password. “Protecting our clients’ data is always the top priority for us, so two-factor authentication is a natural addition that provides an extra layer of protection above and beyond the Master Password.”
Two-factor authentication (also known as 2-step verification) requires users to confirm their identity by providing two different pieces of information from independent sources when logging in. Sticky Password users now have the option of logging in using their Master Password plus a unique time-based one-time passcode that is generated every 30 seconds. Sticky Password supports Google Authenticator for Android and iOS devices.
“Unlike standard implementations, where the second factor is not used to harden the encryption algorithm, Sticky Password is using the second factor as an added element for encrypting each user's data" added Mr. Bilek. "This strengthens the data protection exponentially.”
