Editors' Review

+

RoboForm is far more than a form-filling and password-managing browser add-on; this inexpensive shareware is one of the most useful browser enhancements we've encountered. RoboForm saves and enters log-in data and passwords, as well as your address, contact data, or any form fields you're always entering the hard way in Web sites and Windows programs. It also manages bookmarks, downloads, notes, and much more. RoboForm costs just under $10 with a free 30-day trial.

Pros

Everywhere or Desktop: You can install RoboForm to save data only on your main PC, or you can create an online account that lets you use RoboForm with all your computers and devices. In either case, memorize your master password, which can't be recovered.

Extras: RoboForm's extensive list of extras includes a secure Password Generator, SafeNotes, Contacts, Fingerprints, Smart Cards, and many other features and tools.

Options: RoboForm boasts a huge range of options and settings. We could Manage Identities and Profiles, edit Contacts, and Import and Sync data from RoboForm's Windows tray menu or browser settings.

Cons

Too much? RoboForm does so much and has so many features and extras that some users might find it overwhelming.

Costs money: RoboForm is inexpensive and delivers excellent value, but it's not free. Much of what it does is also available in freeware; just not in one program.

Bottom line

We're impressed by RoboForm, and so are many others, to judge by the program's reception. It significantly enhances your browser's capabilities and minimizes routine actions. The more time you spend online or at your PC, the more RoboForm can do for you.

"Best of the Best"

April 10, 2016  |  By warewoof

2016-04-10 06:19:34  |  By warewoof

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.9.18.0

Pros

This is by far the most advanced and easy to use password manager on the market, which of course includes free products. I feel secure not having to remember any of my passwords and letting Roboform create them for me. As long as I remember my account password and my master password (I use the same for both), I am secure. I use the cloud based Roboform Everywhere product; and I'm no expert in encryption, but it seems to me that this is about as secure from the source point as it gets. The multifactor authentication feature is even added insurance. Roboform needs only to be registered one time for each device from which Roboform is accessed. I suppose nothing is 100% hackproof, but I feel confident that my passwords are secure using Roboform; and it is more feature rich than the others I've tried. I customize its settings to many specific needs. It is among the most valuable utilities I have on my devices, and perhaps even the most valuable of all.

Cons

Websites are making it harder and harder for password minders to autofill and that is frustrating. Sometimes, copy and paste is necessary. It's getting better, but Roboform doesn't work exactly seamlessly when it comes to iOS or Android. I'm not a fan of anything Android frankly, so that part doesn't bother me much. iOS is getting better and Apple seems to be much more open to integrating features between apps nowadays.

Summary

This is the password minder to get in my opinion. I've used it for many years and the support is excellent. They courteously answer my sometimes dumb questions and deal with my not always patient attitude about software problems and that's saying something. Even with the slight cons mentioned, Apple's iOS has finally come around to allow Roboform to be integrated a bit with its systems. There is a browser within the iOS Roboform app itself too, which I believe must be a mirror of the native Mobile Safari browser. It is a giant help, as is the ability to use Roboform directly with Mobile Safari. I'm not a big fan of Android, so I'm not totally up on how it works there, but I supsect pretty good. I know there are browser extension options for Chrome and I think Dolphin. All in all, Roboform is well worth the cost and it does a whole lot more than its competitors to tidy up one's cyber life. If websites would only stop making it so hard to fill some of their password forms, it would be better. I don't think that is Roboform's fault frankly, and I'm not even sure it is anything intentional with the websites. Roboform is always improving with updates to fix known issues with various sites. So the trade-off is minimal compared to the benefits of using Roboform, of course synced across every device you own and use.

"Not my cup of Tea!"

2016-03-21 07:57:18  |  By grichardt

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.9.18.0

Pros

Installs easily.

Cons

Prevents other programs from functioning properly.
Almost impossible to remove completely.

Summary

After installing this on my home computer then attempting to use it on a school computer without admin rights, programs on the school computer malfunctioned. complete removal resolved the problems on my school computer, but I still get a Roboform nag screen on my home computer.

"Shyster Company"

March 21, 2016  |  By RJRiley

2016-03-21 06:33:14  |  By RJRiley

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.9.18.0

Pros

Use this product and you will eventually be blackmailed by the company.

Cons

For many years Syber Systems sold lifetime licenses, but then they did a nasty bait and switch, tying to force all clients to pay them yearly.

Prior to this attempt to blackmail existing clients, they removed the ability to export existing data, a move which I believe was meant to make it harder for clients to switch to other password managers.

Summary

But, I did switch to using LastPass and the companion program xMarks, and have been very happy with those programs, which are free unless you want to also use them with Android devices for $12 a year, otherwise it is free.

The bottom line is that Siber Systems, the creator of RoboForm defrauded all owners of lifetime licenses.

"Great software"

October 26, 2015  |  By pbike908

2015-10-26 06:20:14  |  By pbike908

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.9.16.6

Pros

Great password and bookmark manager. I use it for Windows computers and IOS devices (Iphone 5 and original Ipad Mini). I have been using for 3 years. Works really well with FireFox and Chrome on Windows -- and will also work with IE.

Cons

Can be a little tricky to set up, but then again all password managers are. It is well worth the effort though.

"Application is useful on desktop - not so good remotely"

October 14, 2015  |  By timmoleary

2015-10-14 17:40:09  |  By timmoleary

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.9.16.6

Pros

Works well with many websites.

Cons

If a problem, very difficult to get customer service. Voice prompt says "you are number 4 in the que." I've waited consistently on calls for over 10 minutes and not gotten a person to talk to. I find this very frustrating since password issues are time sensitive and as a CPA time is critical.

Summary

For reasons of customer service, I cannot recommend this software.

"great great software"

September 25, 2015

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.9.16.6

Pros

everything, the very every rare time that i needed to contact customer support for something i screwed up that got back to me right away. and as i said it was something i did that was the problem. and after i would contact them i would remember what i did and then have to email them again telling them i figured out what i did wrong and everything is running as it should. thank god i have only done that once. they must think i am computer stupid

Cons

i have used RoboForm for the last ten years and can find nothing wrong with it. so there are no cons

Summary

this is the best money i have spent on any software. i love that it saves all of my login and passwords and i have never had to worry about security. i do keep a backup of my login and password but in ten years i have never had to use the backup. cannot say enough good things about RoboForm
