RoboForm

CNET Editors' review

RoboForm is an application that can assist you in speeding up your Internet experience by bookmarking sites and entering previously saved passwords.

As soon as you install RoboForm a toolbar will be added to your Web browser. The design is very sleek and it blends very well so that you hardly notice the addition. If you're always worried about forgetting the passwords for your favorite Web sites, this can be very helpful. It's relatively easy to figure out how to use most of the features, but there are also tutorial videos on the publisher's site (which will pop up after you install RoboForm). These are very helpful and show the steps clearly.

You will be able to save passwords, bookmark Web site addresses, and generate new passwords. RoboForm even does the job of logging in for you once you've set up all of the information needed. Our favorite feature is the Password Generator, since it makes it easier to regularly change passwords to keep your accounts safe. All of this data can either be saved on just your computer or both on your computer and online through syncing. You can set this up in the beginning or change it later.

You shouldn't encounter any problems during the download and installation process. You are required to close certain programs in order for it to continue installing correctly, so make sure you save any work before installing. We recommend this handy browser add-on for any user who spends a lot of time surfing the Web.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of RoboForm 7.8. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

    "RoboForm is unethical and arrogant"

    February 23, 2014  |   By kknobblykknees

    Version: RoboForm 7.1.9

    Pros

    Was my favourite password manager for many years

    Cons

    From v7 RoboForm deliberately make your own data unusable to prevent you from moving to another password manager. Cyber vandalism is so pathetic.

    The Android implementation of RoboForm really doesn't do the job at all, when prompted for a login by any website, there is just no way to auto-fill from RoboForm.

    Finally support is arrogant and unhelpful - on all other issues I have tried to het help with, or made a suggestion for improvement.

    Summary

    Fallen from grace in the biggest possible way - avoid at all costs.

    "BEST APPLICATION EVER!"

    June 6, 2013  |   By jeremykgriffith

    Version: RoboForm 7.1.9

    Pros

    THIS HAS BECOME MY FAVORITE APPLICATION EVER AS IT DOES SOOOOO MUCH! BOOKMARKS, PASSWORDS, FORM FILLING. SO AWESOME

    Cons

    NONE AT ALL.

    Summary

    YOUR LIFE IS INCOMPLETE WITHOUT THIS APPLICATION. FULFILL YOUR DREAMS WITH THIS AMAZING APPLICATION. I KNOW I DID! BUT SERIOUSLY THIS IS THE BEST. WAY BETTER THAN LASTPASS OR KEEPASS OR ANY OTHERS OUT THERE. I KNOW I HAVE TRIED THEM ALL.

    "Crooked Company do not trust them"

    May 19, 2012  |  

    Version: RoboForm 7.1.9

    Pros

    None any longer
    Used to be my password manager

    Cons

    They lie. I bought multiple copies over years with the promise of FREE upgrades. Now they have changed their policy and will not provide free upgrades.

    Summary

    They are crooks, plane and simple. They they are within their right to offer new terms to new users but they can not change a contract on existing users. They have broken their contract with users DO NOT BUY FROM THEM. USE LASTPASS or KeePass

    "Horrible to customers"

    April 26, 2012  |   By skullaria-2009

    Version: RoboForm 7.1.9

    Pros

    Used to work good.
    Can save forms with custom fields.

    Cons

    License contract breach
    NO respect for customers
    Confusing license scheme
    if computer goes to sleep, has to be restarted to work

    Summary

    I used to like roboform because it worked like a dream. Then they upgraded it and the auto update came up, and I wase, supposed to have free updates, so I did it, and then I was screwed and I've been screwed since, even though I DID buy the new version. It doesn't work right and still tells me to upgrade all the time. :(

    April 2, 2012  |   By hhfsron1

    There are no pros

    "CNET stinks absolutely!"

    November 5, 2011  |   By ArthurClarke

    Version: RoboForm 7.1.9

    Pros

    CNET has NO redeeming value.

    Cons

    Internet sleeze aimed at suckering the innocent into buying and downloading programs they don't need or want.

    Summary

    This is NOT a review about RoboForm, except that they use CNET to distribute their program. I have learned painfully to be very careful in navigating CNET's Web page. It is designed to distract and confuse. I gave it one star only because I was unable to give it NO (ZERO) star, which it deserves.

    The faster RoboForm can replace CNET the better.

    The one RoboForm irritation is that it has an unwelcome habit of alerting a user to an upgrade in the middle of things. More useful would be to give the option of upgrading after one has closed out of work.

    "Roboform-Siber Systems Dishonest!"

    October 1, 2011  |   By mark_sj_ca2

    Version: RoboForm 7.1.9

    Pros

    Product works as advertised

    Cons

    Roboform is dishonest. After advertising free upgrades they reneged on their word and have said to their users that they must PAY. Since Roboform version 7 is REQUIRED for Firefox 6 (or 5, or 4!) all must succumb to their piracy.

    Summary

    Roboform Better Business Bureau page now has a big REVOKED on it because of so many complaints. Here's the link to the BBB page: http://www.bbb.org/washington-dc-eastern-pa/business-reviews/computers-software-and-services/siber-systems-in-fairfax-va-7004423/

    Here's the link that PROVES free upgrades where offered when I purchased: http://web.archive.org/web/20080822215550/www.roboform.com/why-pro.html

    If this Russian based company is unethical enough to break their word regarding upgrades, are they unethical enough to sell my passwords to the Russian mob? *gulp*

    Updated on Oct 2, 2011

    I'm happy to report that within 48 hours of filing a report here, that Roboform/Siber systems upgraded my license.

    If anybody from Roboform/Siber systems reads this... you shouldn't just be doing this for your customers that complain in public venues. You should proactively be doing this for all customers that you sold under the "free upgrades" offer. That's the RIGHT thing to do!

    "Dont trust them."

    August 3, 2011  |   By gibletz

    Version: RoboForm 7.1.9

    Pros

    Good product. Used it for years and was overall pretty happy with it.

    Cons

    Don't honour the terms of their upgrade agreement so I won't trust them with my card details. Unfortunately they (Siber systems) committed the cardinal sin of reneging on the original purchase terms and so they will never see any of my money again.

    Summary

    I now use LastPass.

    "Bait And Switch"

    May 17, 2011  |   By rjriley5000

    Version: RoboForm 7.1.9

    Pros

    None, use LastPass.

    Cons

    Attempt to blackmail customers into paying again.

    Summary

    Migrate to LastPass.

    "Worse than you could ever imagine"

    May 9, 2011  |   By bryancassady2

    Version: RoboForm 7.1.9

    Pros

    It would work, if you didn't need to keep synchronizing and re-activating the program

    Cons

    You need to keep activating and re-activating.
    What a waste of time

    Summary

    This product is supposed to save time...
    If you are like me you will find it a huge time waster and a very frustrating experience...
