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.

"It works fairly well, with a few flaws."

August 12, 2012  |  By glasscats

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.7

Pros

Helps in keeping track of passwords without exposing any information or having to rely on a safe place to keep a list of documented passwords to reference constantly.

Cons

Having listed the pros, which should be the way the program works, I must say that it is not always dependable, and that list of passwords I mentioned should be kept as a backup. I've had to reference mine quite a few times, and it always seems to be related to one particular website for some reason.

Summary

It is a fairly good program, and probably works just as well as any other.

"? Flaw in Security"

August 11, 2012  |  By poschfam

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.7

Pros

Not sure, just started using trial version.

Cons

Once you are logged in and your browser is open, if you click on Editor, all your login information including passwords is clearly visible. This seems a major hole in security. What if your device is stolen while you are logged in? Am I missing something?
I'm not going to proceed any further without knowing more about this issue.

"I love RoboForm"

August 10, 2012  |  By rlweiner

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.7

Pros

I used the desktop version, which isn't cloud based. That's a pro for me since I don't trust cloud-based systems with the keys to all my online identities.
Great integration with Firefox and IE.

Cons

Only their cloud-based system integrates with tablets and smartphones.
I've been using RoboForm since it was free for unlimited use, and had it installed on 3 home computers. Their desktop license model only provides a license for 1 computer. I haven't been willing to pay 3 x $29. That's the only reason I don't give it 5 stars.

Summary

It's a great password manager, but expensive to license the desktop version for multiple computers.

August 05, 2012  |  By CharlezO

"A very good piece of hardware."

August 04, 2012  |  By CCook2806

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.7

Pros

It can now be used on more machines and keeps itself syncronized. I have used Roboform for at least 5 years and I have recommended it many times.

Cons

I have had some problems at first even finding the login in toolbar but it seems to be fixed now.

Summary

Somehow some of my logins became convaluted I believe that they have all been righted. I have even become comfortable with using "forgotten user name and lost password". I believe that most of the bugs have been worked out - I hope.
