RoboForm

CNET 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.

    "I am a big fan of Roboform."

    December 31, 2009  |   By JannotJon

    Version: RoboForm 6.9.9

    Pros

    Fills in forms, remembers passwords. I keep a copy on a thumb drive and my personal laptop. I can use the thumb drive to log in on other computers (hotels) and it defeats key loggers.

    Cons

    Really sucks with Vista and can't use it with Chrome at all. The online version is a bit wonky and you have to download a trial copy to be able to log in that way. Not good.

    Summary

    Love the product.

    "Best password software I have used"

    February 2, 2009  |   By johngolo

    Version: RoboForm 6.9.9

    Pros

    Can enter logins & passwords easily on sites that attempt to limit that function

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind

    "Program is very user-unfriendly."

    January 3, 2009  |   By lorraineboucher

    Version: RoboForm 6.9.9

    Pros

    I don't like anything about it.

    Cons

    I received an email saying that I had installed this version of RoboForm, and I did not. See Bottom-Line Summary of my experience with an older version that I tried to remove several months ago.

    Summary

    I removed RoboForm using my Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. However, anytime I search my hard drive for anything, RoboForm entries appear throughout my hard drive and I don't understand why. I asked for support in this regard and did not receive an explanation of why Roboform entries appeared throughout my hard drive after removing the program. I was instructed how to completely remove the program, which I had already done properly, but RoboForm entries still exist throughout my hard drive to this day. I don't dare to just delete all these entries without knowing the consequences, and besides I don't have that kind of time.

    "An absolute necessity. Couldn't live without it."

    January 2, 2009  |   By Richard Tallini

    Version: RoboForm 6.9.9

    Pros

    This program avoids the problem of key checkers stealing your passwords. It fills in the blanks so quickly that key checkers are useless

    Cons

    Nothing to dislike

    "A very nice little tool."

    December 9, 2008  |   By rednetherton

    Version: RoboForm 6.9.9

    Pros

    Does what it says it will do, and does it easily and well.

    Cons

    Limitation in free version. If I bought a license for every bit of software I use, I would need to be a millionaire...

    Summary

    This is an excellent form filler for most online forms you see every day.

    "Simplicity itself - Easy to use Always ready 1st Class"

    November 22, 2008  |   By phishingnet

    Version: RoboForm 6.9.9

    Pros

    Very easy to download and install all done in 5 minutes even on a 2GB connection. Saves your own passwords or will generate, and remember, new ones when you've finished with the dictionary.

    Cons

    American English. when moved from old to new machine 'Master Password' did not follow so cannot password protect logins. fine for browsing sites BUT do not use on any financial pages.

    "Automate entering same data again and again"

    November 21, 2008  |  

    Version: RoboForm 6.9.9

    Pros

    Boosts productivity many times. Just choose your wanted web with wanted data. You can have many datas for same website, for instance many username and passwords for website.

    Cons

    Sometimes conflicts with Firefox remembering data scheme. Needs to turn if off in Firefox to avoid unnecessary canceling.

    Summary

    It is for everyone who works with PC. Saving time if always good thing to do. And roboform is just that, great time saver.

    "Try it and I bet you'll buy it."

    November 18, 2008  |   By gardentend

    Version: RoboForm 6.9.9

    Pros

    It works! Some commented that it doesn't work with all forms, like banks. All you need to do is set up another login. Bank of America, for example. Create one RF entry for username then second for password. In both cases just fill&submit. no problem.

    Cons

    Like it all. Really no cons.

    Summary

    Downloaded and started adding logins and passwords. Trial period expired and I would only have been able to use it for 10. I almost never pay for any software but there was no hesitation in going to RF website and paying $30 for this program. It has made it so much easier to access banking site, credit cards, retirement accounts etc etc. It's a great program.
