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.

"Great to have all my passwords safely in one place."

June 22, 2013  |  By PWNeely

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.8

Pros

All passwords in one place.
Easy to access them but feel they are safe.

Cons

Can't always simply click on the site in RoboForm and have it fill in the User ID and Password. Often have to manually type them in but other times it works automatically.

"I love it!!!"

June 21, 2013  |  By trsheila

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.8

Pros

Security is at the top of the list. Not having to jot down or come up with passwords and then lose them anyway. I've been using roboform for years and can't say enough good about them.

Cons

It's hard to figure out some of the stuff, at least for me. I wish they would simplify it a little.

Summary

I recommend roboform to every tech I talk to and anybody else.

"A great password manager worth it's cost."

June 11, 2013  |  By Chas4

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.8

Pros

The program is very versatile and I find the ability to generate random passwords invaluable. That it's integrated into all my browsers and devices means I never have try and remember a password.

Cons

Sometimes the way it offers you a login is a bit weird. This mainly happens when you have a number of logins that are similar or you have a personal and work login to the same site.

"Indispensable in my life!"

June 09, 2013  |  By pigletag

 |  Version: RoboForm 7.8

Pros

Love it in almost every way!

Cons

The setting of Default login doesn't accomplish that. Multiple logins appear in an order that I can't seem to change.

The choice of "AutoFill from Passwords only on pages with Passwords" (Options->AutoFill) sometimes offers to fill on other pages.

Android smartphone app still a bit squirrelly.
