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.

    "Bait and Switch Liars"

    January 29, 2013  |   By phkathy

    Version: RoboForm 7.2

    Pros

    Used to be awesome. I paid for a one time, lifetime program. Just like saying "I do"... it's only good until someone changes their mind. They decided to screw over all of their long time customers by changing the terms, and then redefining what they say they meant by those terms to begin with. I referred many people to this company. Never again. I don't mind buying a yearly subscription if I agree to that up front. But I really resent buying a lifetime product and having them convert the contract to something entirely different.

    Cons

    Changed their agreement with me with no recourse on my part. Not trustworthy. Don't get hooked on this program. How do you know they won't decide to double the price after you've used it for a few years? At that point you'll feel dependent on it and as if you can't give up the program. So just say NO right from the get go.

    Summary

    Formerly great program, short-sighted company.

    "Dishonourable Company"

    September 7, 2012  |   By gebe01

    Version: RoboForm 7.2

    Pros

    Did work well.

    Cons

    Having purchased a few LIFETIME licenses' for Roboform & Goodsync I don't think I should have to pay again for version 7 & the yearly subscription for Everywhere. If there is no more support for version 6 I feel it is time for me to try one of the other password managers although somewhat reluctantly because I have always liked Roboform & recommended it to many people.

    Summary

    From what I've been reading about other Password managers Keepass seems a better option although the Pro version of Keepass is also not a Lifetime License but I don't think they ever sold it as 'Lifetime' then left they're customers stuck with a version that never gets updated!
    Now the old version 6 they (Siber Systems Inc.) are saying is my lifetime product. What use is this when it isn't compatible with all browsers & hasn't been updated for almost 2 yrs.

    "I'm Another Who is Leaving Forever"

    June 6, 2011  |   By jpass1011

    Version: RoboForm 7.2

    Pros

    product worked well for years. In fact, I've upgraded with them through several versions ..... all up until version 7 when they all the sudden claimed that "Free Upgrades" didn't mean "Free Major Upgrades" and tried to get me to buy a new license.

    Cons

    Firefox 4 doesn't work with Versions under 7....

    I've found a workaround for now on a software help board that makes version 6.10.2 work with Firefox 4. But as soon as I find a replacement I am leaving Roboform forever. Jerks.

    Summary

    As countless others have stated here. Stay away. They are untrustworthy.

    "Ripped Off by RoboForm"

    May 12, 2011  |   By roboformripoff

    Version: RoboForm 7.2

    Pros

    USED TO BE the best Password Manager

    Cons

    NO LONGER A TRUSTWOTHY COMPANY. Deceptive terms. Poor support. Updates void license agreement.

    Summary

    Roboform deceptively screwed over their base of loyal customers by changing their terms. Don't use this product, choose another Password Manager. CNET's review was conducted BEFORE RoboForm changed their product and policy

    "giving up on this"

    May 11, 2011  |   By mmunroe401

    Version: RoboForm 7.2

    Pros

    Can't say. It used to be a good product.

    Cons

    When I paid for lifetime upgrades, I thought it refereed to my lifetime. Now it appears that lifetime refers to the prior product lifetimeI'm going to look far a less expensive product and simpler product. Don't trust them anymore

    May 10, 2011  |   By fastmc

    Pros

    Work with firefox 3.6

    Cons

    Bought roboform and roboform to go now useless with new browsers ..What happened to lifetime upgrades? Can always go back to firefox 3.6 but won't will start using LASTPASS . Already started can still retrieve pass words ..

    "Good Product. BAD COMPANY!"

    May 10, 2011  |   By irchard

    Version: RoboForm 7.2

    Pros

    It does the job. My passwords are organized and easy to save and find.

    Cons

    The company lied about one time charge for pro with all future updates included. I have the pro version and is not supported in the current version of Firefox. The company now wants to charge me for a version that will work with the new FF version.

    Summary

    The company has fooled me once! They will not have the opportunity to fool me again. I have recommended this program to countless people. RoboForm will never again receive another recommendation from this user!

    "worth it but with one annoying niggle"

    May 10, 2011  |   By gbswales1

    Version: RoboForm 7.2

    Pros

    the new multi computer online version is superb and a great improvement over the cost of buying separate licenses. It seems secure but I would not entrust any online storage with banking or similar logins

    Cons

    the one really annoying thing is that it needs to be manually synced every week or so otherwise it wont work - I simply do not understand why they could not have automated this process even if it required a confirmation

    Summary

    I think the best that is out there - i like the way i can organise my IDs and access them from any PC or device including ipad
