RoboForm 8.3.9

Reviewed by Chris Thomas on - Version tested: 7.6.4

"Secure and Easy-to-Use Password Manager"

Overview

RoboForm is an incredibly useful password manager software that securely stores personal details, passwords, and login credentials to make logging in and out of online and off-line accounts easier than ever before. If you're constantly wasting your time filling out web forms with the same information repetitively, RoboForm 7.6.4 could be the solution to your problems.

Installation

The installation process is simple and friendly, but there are a few options you'll need to be aware of. First, you'll need to determine which programs you want RoboForm to store and/or import data from. After asking you which applications/browsers you would like RoboForm to automatically remember information from, the software will warn you that any conflicting programs will need to be closed before continuing. You'll also be asked whether you want your RoboForm data to be shared only on your computer, or through your online RoboForm account as well, based on your privacy preferences.

Interface

RoboForm has always been known for having an extremely user-friendly interface, and version 7.6.4 is no exception, with six sidebar tabs that provide easy access to all of the software's features – Logins, Bookmarks, Applications, Identities, Contacts, and Safe Notes. You can also click the 'All' tab to display all of the aforementioned data/features simultaneously. In the top left corner, the RoboForm button provides access to your options and settings.

Pros

  • Create custom profiles/RoboForm identities that contain all of your basic information and can be used to automatically fill out an entire form with the click of your mouse.

  • Utilize RoboForm online account to network your profile logins and identities via the Internet, letting you utilize the power of RoboForm while you are away from your computer

  • Avoid having to remember a slew of passwords by protecting all of your identities with a single master password

  • Automatically sync and backup RoboForm data over the Internet using RoboForm Everywhere service

  • All RoboForm protected data is secured with the latest state-of-the-art AES 256 encryption methods, and additional security settings are available in the options menu

  • Supports all major operating systems, including Windows, Mac, and Linux

  • Use the encrypted safe notes feature to store sensitive data like pin numbers on your computer with confidence

  • Password Generator aids in creating strong and unique passwords that are difficult to hack

  • Import existing login data into RoboForm from programs such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Outlook.

  • Utilize encrypted file transfers to transfer RoboForm safe notes or login data via the Internet

Cons

  • No way to recover master password, so deleting the existing profile is the only option

  • May accidentally fill out the wrong forms with erroneous information on some web sites that contain faulty javascript or varying field titles.

Alternatives

While RoboForm is considered to be the most prominent password manager software available, there are a few notable alternatives, including LastPass, KeePass, 1Password, Clipperz, and Passpack Online. The main attribute that sets RoboForm apart from these competitors is that it is a robust desktop application that easily integrates with all popular browsers and operating systems, whereas many other password managers are specifically designed for certain browsers, or can only be used online.

Conclusion

If you want to save time and eliminate the frustration associated with repeatedly filling out forms every time you want to sign up for an account or login, RoboForm is definitely worth your time.

Requirements: 32mb memory, 4mb of disk space
