    "Makes it possible to use password securely."

    June 6, 2013  |   By dhstraayer

    Version: RoboForm 7.8

    Pros

    Makes it practical to use different, strong passwords for each password-requiring site. Generates strong passwords that you don't have to remember. Accepts an "XKCD-style" passphrase that you can remember to unlock individual, secure passwords for all the places you need them.

    Cons

    Can take a little while to install and set up cloud-based secures password storage.

    Summary

    We all know we should use different passwords for each site, and they should be strong passwords. But actually doing that is a nearly impossible task. I've been using Roboform for a couple of years now, and I can say that it makes secure password use possible.

    "Awesome software"

    May 30, 2013  |   By tonyrayer

    Version: RoboForm 7.8

    Pros

    Been using it for 10 years and never had a problem. Saves me hours a week as a support engineer as I have hundreds of logins. Use if on my PC, phone and tablet - all synced perfectly - super fast and reliable. Perfect for everyone in education, financial sector, or general business - take a trial

    Cons

    None I can think of

    "A Real Gem"

    May 20, 2013  |   By pbike908

    Version: RoboForm 7.8

    Pros

    Great program for managing passwords and logins plus easy to synch to multiple computers, tablets, cell phones (disclaimer haven't integrated with cell phone yet). I can attest first hand that it works well with IE Explorer 10 and Chrome. I also have used the Everywhere feature on the road on a hotels computer.

    Cons

    Documentation could be better. If one wants to accept the program at face value meaning one isn't interested in understanding where the data is stored, how it interacts with browsers, including using the everywhere component then the documentation is fine. Since I run so much of my life (investing, banking, insurance, paying bills, making traveling arrangements, etc.) on the computer I wanted to make sure that I completely understood the mechanization of the program. This wasn't necessarily well documented. As a side note, one doesn't necessarily need to concern themselves with this, but from my perspective the primarily vulnerability of using an application such as this is MIS USE. In other words, being careless about you set up the program and especially how one uses it on other computers.

    Summary

    Great program and I think it's well worth the $20 per year annual subscription. I would give it 5 stars if it came with better documentation.

    "Different passwords"

    May 18, 2013  |   By hjwanke

    Version: RoboForm 7.8

    Pros

    Keeps track of passwords. Allows you to have a different password for each site logged into. Generates passwords so you don't have to. There is a version that executes from a USB device so that you can log on from different PCs.

    Cons

    A separate license for each PC or USB is required. However, extra licensees are sold at a discount.

    "RoboForm is the best password manager."

    May 15, 2013  |   By Sam4X5

    Version: RoboForm 7.8

    Pros

    It is fast, reliable, always available, and it has been on my computers for over a decade. Each update has just improved an already superior product. It makes me feel safer online because a hacker would have to crack a monstrous password to get at me from a business site, and all site passwords are different and constantly changing.

    Cons

    It may not be for a large family with kids because the pressure is always there to share your password. This can be especially bad for husband and wife. But then again welcome to the digital age.

    Summary

    To be safe I do not understand how anyone can be without it.
