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.

November 02, 2011  |  By msmithjh

"was good but not getting better"

November 01, 2011  |  By traveller60

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.5

Pros

saves all your passwords which is getting to be more rediculous than ever

Cons

always wants to save a password when it is already in the system -- even the program itself requires passwords with specific letters and numbers and i really dont need some program making me use passwords that i dont want

Summary

was exceptional and now going backwards -- if a company wants a million word password then that is their option -- i want the passwords that i am used to and really dont want their help to make me use unfamiliar passwords and if there is another program i will switch

"Great program for keeping my passwords acurate"

November 01, 2011  |  By Swedelar

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.5

Pros

Works good for adding passwords and ID's to new programs in a safe place.

Cons

Hard to get into the password account and change the ID or password. If a program does not let you create a password and ID when you start it up, it is very hard and sometimes impossible to create a password and ID.

Summary

I will keep it going as I have about 150 different accounts with ID's and passwords that I would have to have little yellow sticky notes all over the office.

"Great program, a must have for all desktops"

November 01, 2011  |  By ProNotion

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.5

Pros

As a user of RoboForm for many years I can highly recommend this tool as one of those apps you just shouldn't be without. The password generator allows you to generate very secure passwords that you never need to remember or reuse..

Cons

The Google Chrome integration still has some way to go before being acceptable. The toolbar is stuck at the bottom of the window and often obliterates the status bar meaning I can't see urls before clicking them and so consistently having to keep enabling/disabling the toolbar.

"I can't live without RoboForm"

November 01, 2011  |  By DDDelhi

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.5

Pros

By generating and remembering passwords unique to a specific website and by remembering a disposable e-mail address generated specifically for that website, I feel that security on the internet is much enhanced. You can track if e-mail addresses have been compomised and are generating spam and they can be turned off. This approach would be impossible without having Roboform keep track of all the details.

Cons

Over time, with various computer upgrades and backups, my passcards are all over the place. I wish there was a way of scanning and collecting the Roboform logins and passcards in one folder in the way that, say, iTunes finds all your music.

"The best password manager ever"

November 01, 2011  |  By yehia55

Cons

"Was great now only good"

October 31, 2011  |  By t2000kw

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.5

Pros

Works on most web sites

Cons

no longer works on some web sites it used to, won't fill in some forms on some web pages where it used to before. Let's hope they fix this or you might be better off with another password program like LastPass.

Summary

If they fix what's wrong, it will be a great program again.
