Editors' review

You can reduce the time you spend filling out Web forms and logging onto subscription sites with RoboForm. This major update improves usability significantly and replaces the old, clunky autofill window with a less-obtrusive toolbar. If you don't like the standard toolbar placement, you can run it at the bottom of the browser instead. That's the standard placement for Mozilla-based browsers. The program uses encryption algorithms such as Blowfish and AES to protect your data and includes a password generator. You can set up multiple identities with different credit-card numbers, passwords, and contact information. The trial limits the tab instances on each identity to three, but you can make plenty of identities.

Our favorite feature is Login, which with one click will go to a Web page, fill in a form, and submit your information. The program handles check boxes and radio buttons and supports about 20 languages. The new Search field in the toolbar makes finding and accessing any information quick, and we appreciate support for hot keys. Besides returning matching logins and other RoboForm entries, the search box will offer to search Google, Yahoo, and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary for your term. RoboForm will save active Web users a lot of time.

    "Great Programs - Drags Down Browser"

    August 10, 2014   |   By Al270

    Version: RoboForm 7.9.8.5

    Pros

    Easy to load and use.

    Cons

    Slows down the loading pages even after rebooting etc. Especially drags down Zygna games on Facebook on each action that requires a click by 5 to 10 secs which makes it unacceptable. Not sure how it would affect other on line games but this con caused me to remove the program and go back to using Stickies for my passwords.

    Summary

    Great program for non-gamers or anyone who does not mind an extra delay in loading pages, but unacceptable hit in performance if you load a lot of screens.

    "Great...love RoboForm"

    July 04, 2014   |   By dquin656

    Version: RoboForm 7.9.8.5

    Pros

    I have many email accounts and it is easy to choose which one to use, because of the toolbar.
    When you have to change a password, it automatically replaces the old password with the new one, when you reply to the question, do you want to save this information.Can maintain logins via it's interface

    Even with the cons, I still find it one of the easiest and best password keepers available.

    Cons

    I know there isn't much to do about it, but I don't like the Goggle add-on. I know it will do everything the IE tool will do, but it being on the bottom of the screen, it sometimes blocks fields that needs to be entered.

    The other problem is that many sites have popup logins now, and RoboForm cannot submit the form. But, it will fill the form (usually) and you just click the submit form manually on the login popup. Not a severe issue.

    There are also more sites that use different pages for the login. 1st page you enter your login id, 2nd page you enter your password, 3rd page you answer your "secret" question answer. I've had trouble getting this to work.

    I want my daughters to try it, but there is no longer a "free" trial version. The old one used to limit you to 20 logins. Please bring the "free trial" version back. Even if you lower it to 10 or 5 logins, so people can really get the experience of trying it out, before they buy.

    Summary

    Since my primary browser is IE, I very happy with it. I've had it for about 4-5 years and still feel the most comfortable with it's features. I have tried a few others that are rated highly, but being lazy, I never got comfortable about their functions and how it works.
