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.

"Best Avoided As The Company Is Not Trustworthy"

June 09, 2011  |  By PoseidonUK

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.2.9

Pros

I've used it for 2 years .
The program does what it says

Cons

The company is devious and unprofessional in providing updates and charging later.
It sold me Roboform Everywhere and only afterwards told me I needed to buy updated desktop software.

Summary

The program auto updated my computer with what I thought was a standard update then locked me out unless I paid $30 upgrade. I went for the Roboform Everywhere Software for my IPAD, paid $10 but it then advised me ( only after purchase ) to use it I've to pay another $30 to upgrade desktop software to use it.Apparently, the company has recently changed hands. Their bahaviour in trying to force charges is not acceptable. If they can't be trusted here how can they be trusted with my precious security passwords. Do not use !

"The Best Software Ever!"

June 09, 2011  |  By bean66

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.2.9

Pros

I don't know how I lived before Roboform. I have been using it for years and I will use it for as long as it exists. With the new Roboform everywhere, you can access your passwords from anywhere. With so many passwords, it's a lifesaver.

Cons

If you accidentally delete any passwords, the deletion could sync with the server and you will then lose those passwords. However, the program did ask me if I wanted to sync the changes, and I was able to correct. Backup to a hard drive.

Summary

Highly recommend to store all of your passwords, favorite websites and even notes.

"Unscrupulous company"

June 08, 2011  |  By roboformSucks

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.2.9

Pros

It remembers passwords for at least a few months before a browser update breaks their code.

Cons

A few months after you buy it, it is likely that a browser upgrade will break their software. They will then release a new version that requires you to buy it even though they offer free upgrades for life.

Summary

Be prepared to spend $$$ upgrading if you want it to work more than a few months.
