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.

"Password Recall Wherever Needed."

July 03, 2012  |  By maldelus

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.7

Pros

Since Roboform hooks up with Roboform Everywhere, it's indispensable to me as I also have to laptops.

Cons

I have no cons. It's just a learning curve.

Summary

I used to keep my passwords elsewhere and it was quickly becoming a monster to manage. This is a mega-timesaver for me.

"A long-term customer that was ripped-off and lied to"

June 13, 2012  |  By Pinball-Fan

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.7

Pros

Great product

Customer Support not great, but much better than average

Usually quick to support new versions of browsers

Cons

Punished their loyal customers by reneging on their promise of "buy once, free upgrades always."

Summary

I've been using Roboform for a DECADE. Started with their free version, and I liked it so much that I paid money for their "Pro" version in December 2002. Are you old enough to remember Gator? That's what I used before Roboform, and I was thrilled to find a superior product without Gator's spyware and ad pop-ups. Here's Roboform's home page from back then; notice the link encouraging switching from Gator? http://web.archive.org/web/20021201031653/http://roboform.com/

And here's their page that shows the promise that they broke: http://web.archive.org/web/20021208041307/http://www.roboform.com/why-pro.html

I can understand a need for them to change their business model for NEW customers, but it's a huge disappointment that they didn't think that keeping their word with their prior customers was a worthwhile thing to do.

And it's not as if they never made another dime off of old customers; I bought more licenses of Roboform for putting it onto more computers -- and I'm sure that I'm not the only person that ever did that.

Look at this old home page of theirs from May 2004: A member of the Better Business Bureau. http://web.archive.org/web/20040518090446/http://roboform.com/ Today? Not so much. http://www.bbb.org/washington-dc-eastern-pa/business-reviews/computers-software-and-services/siber-systems-in-fairfax-va-7004423/

"Not as good as earlier version!"

June 09, 2012  |  By JillLamede

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.7

Pros

Not found any improvements yet - but I still love RoboForm. I do like the synchronising between my various devices!

Cons

More unreliable - often fails to fill in forms when browsing with AOL. It is bossy - insists on opening in Firefox - keeps popping up little windows in odd places - wants to add toolbars - I had none of this with the old version.

Summary

Please keep it simple... and tell it that AOL is a legitimate browser.

"Great password program"

June 06, 2012  |  By jrpettit

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.7

Pros

- one click logons to your saved websites
- available on any platform (including mobile & online)
- longevity - program has been around for a long time (I've been using for 8 years)
- easy to use
- built in password generator with lots of options for character requirements
- no apparent limits to number of passwords (I have "tons")
- synchs among platforms

Cons

- some "pop up" logins can't be automatically filled in (work around is to pull up in edit mode to copy / paste)

Summary

Great programs. I recommend to anyone trying to remember their passwords. I wish I had a dollar for every I recommended Roboform to.

"Where did I write that password? It's in the toolbar!"

May 31, 2012  |  By rgruenhaus

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.7

Pros

Easy access to all my passwords and usernames on all my PC's and Smartphones. With sync all!

Cons

They have been talking about fixing the flash window log in for years and have not and the new username on one page and password on another has not been resolved either.

Summary

I got a discount on the first year, but it is at $19.99 a year now and isn't too bad, but wish they could bring that down a bit.

I like it and their customer service is helpful.
