Roboform Password Manager
Roboform is a username and password manager, and
sophisticated form filler. It simply and securely stores
your information. The program securely encrypts on your
Hard Drive all of your usernames and passwords protected
by on master password which is all you have to remember.
Either use your own favourites and when you get to a
login page a box will pop up with the option to click
and your username and password is filled in for you.
Alternatively use the list of logins in the browser
toolbar and the program will automatically navigate to a
website, fill in the username and password fields, and
activate the submit button… all in one click.
There is no memorizing hundreds of usernames and
passwords, no logging your info on hard to read spread
sheets, and no copy and pasting.
Roboform also has a powerful form filler. If you’ve ever
filled out a lengthy web form or application with all
the usual fields, you know how long it can take filling
out the same information. With Roboform, you can create
a PassCard that will store all the necessary information
for you so whenever you come across another web form,
you can just hit one button and all fields are filled,
For online purchases your credit/debit card information
can also be stored and automatically filled in at the
click of a button. You can store more than one card and
choose which one to use
I’ve been using Roboform for over 6 years now, and I can
honestly say it has saved me more time in using my
Computer than any other program and made the whole
process of Computer use so much easier
You have the option to download the program for free. It
can be used on Firefox and Internet Explorer. With the
free program you can only store 10 PassCards and are
limited to just a few Identities.
With the pro version, you get unlimited PassCards for
both logins and Identities. It’s a one time fee, only
$29.95 with regular free updates available. There is
also a portable version. You can order a Roboform USB
drive or you can use your own. Just download the
Roboform2Go to you USB drive and you can plug it in to
any laptop or computer that supports USB. Launch the
program and the toolbar will appear in the browser as
long as the USB is plugged in. Once you remove the
drive, there is no trace of the program or your
Roboform is far and away the market leader with millions
of users and the widest set of easy to use features.
I highly recommend purchasing the Roboform Pro Version,
its inexpensive and easily worth 10 times its current
price. You can also download Roboform for Free to test
drive it and it stays free if you keep to 10 logins.
Standard Roboform Pro for PC or Laptop is $29.95. Extra

Automatically filling forms, memorizing lots of user
names, passwords, let Roboform do it for you
A password manager is a tool that allows you to store
your login information in an encrypted format and
retrieve it as needed. To prevent hackers from accessing
your private information Roboform requires a "Master
Password" to be used as the "key" to perform encryption
and decryption of you data. All you have to remember is
the Master Password and the password manager will
remember all your other passwords for you.
A password manager tool and a form filler
tool are necessary for us to deal with so many user
names and passwords and filling in name, address etc for
registration and credit card details for payment.
Roboform joins the two necessary tools together for your
convenience. You can not only manage your passwords but
also automatically fill forms with Roboform.

Why I love Roboform so much?
Years ago I was looking for a solution to the
multiplying logins of Webmail, online banking and online
shopping. I ended up noting them down on paper, not very
safe. I tried the built-in password manager and form
filler in browser but was disappointed by their limited
functions. No custom fields, can’t fill most of the
forms, not secure and easy to use. After I tried
Roboform the problems were solved

Filling Long Forms
Quality Artificial Intelligence
RoboForm is really smart in filling in forms; it is the
most precise form filler on the market. We use
Artificial Intelligence techniques to achieve this kind
of precision and we test RoboForm thoroughly.
Not Limited Only to Forms it Knows in Advance
RoboForm can read and fill any form, even a form that it
has never seen before. This is because RoboForm does
what humans do when they fill a form -- it parses the
form, "understands" it and makes field filling
You can have many Identities and you can easily switch
between them. Your identities do not have to be real
persons. Use fake Identities -- preserve your privacy.
Contact: a Small Identity
Contact is a small Identity that usually is not offered
for form filling. You can use Contacts to create your
own Address Book, with folder tree structure.
Multiple Credit Cards, Addresses, even Persons in
Every group of fields found in Identity (Credit Card,
Address, Bank Account, Person) can have multiple
instances. That is, you can have several credit cards,
addresses and persons (usually members of one group) in
Selective Form Filling
You can ask RoboForm to fill just a part of your form,
rather than the complete form. Simply select (highlight)
the fields that you want RoboForm to fill and click any
form filling button -- only the selected fields will be
Filling Selection and Radio Button Fields
RoboForm correctly fills selection fields presented as
drop-down lists of items. Example: if you car expiration
date is in February, RoboForm will select "Feb" or
"February" or even "02" in the field. It handles radio
buttons in a similar fashion.
Filling Partitioned Fields
RoboForm also fills out fields that are divided into
several sub-fields. Example: the "Phone Number" field
could be in 3 fields of 3+3+4 digits, 2 fields of 3+7
digits, or one field of 10 digits. Roboform fills out
all of these correctly.
User-Defined Custom Fields
In each Identity you can have custom fields for which
you specify the field caption that is used to recognize
Country-Sensitive Form Filling
RoboForm can fill forms in multiple languages, not just
RoboForm lets you select the country you are in, and
then it customizes its form filling rules based on the
traditions of your country. For instance, it knows that
in the US the date format is MM/DD/YY but that in the UK
it is DD/MM/YY.
Machine Translation: Just a Little Bit
You can set the selection value in one language (for
example: you create your Identity with Title "Monsieur"
in French) and RoboForm will correctly fill this value
in any language that it can handle. For example: it
would put "Herr" into the Title field in a German form.
Generate Secure Random Passwords
Generate random password of any length, up to 512
- Specify set of characters to appear in the password,
including special characters.
- Option to exclude similar characters.
- Option to generate hexadecimal passwords.
- Password bit strength indicator.

Security & Encryption
Strong Encryption Algorithms Used
AES key length depends on Master Password key
* 128 bit for MP less than 32 chars,
* 192 bit for MP from 32 to 47 chars,
* 256 bit for MP 48 chars or longer.
Encryption by Master Password
You can protect all your Identities and Passcards with
the Master Password thus making them inaccessible to
unauthorized users and unreadable by hackers even if
they are stolen. We use AES encryption for increased
Master Password Caching
Once you enter Master Password, it is kept in memory, so
that you do not have to re-enter it for every Passcard.
Logoff command purges cached password from memory.
When RoboForm enters the saved password into form
fields, it is not typing them through keyboard, so if a
keylogger is installed on your computer and it is
monitoring keyboard events for passwords, it will get no
keyboard clicks when you use RoboForm to enter
You can ask RoboForm to purge cached Master Password
from memory after a specified period of inactivity.
Change Master Password
You can ask RoboForm to reprotect all Passcards with the
new Master Password. Also password protection can be
removed or added to all Passcards.
Managing User Data
Backup and Restore
Backup and Restore commands are provided.
Each Passcard / Identity is a File
Each Passcard, Identity and Safenote is a separate file.
This allows to have links to Passcards on desktop, to
send them to your friends by email, and to copy/move
them using Windows Explorer.
A collection of Passcards, Identities and Safenotes
constitutes one RoboForm Profile. You can have more than
one Profile, say one RF Profile for every member of the
household. Easy switching between Profiles is provided.
Each Windows account has its own RoboForm Profile but it
is possible for several Windows accounts to share one
AutoComplete for Passcards, Safenotes, Contacts
Type partial name of Passcard, Identity, Safenote and
have RoboForm show you all objects that match. This is
autocomplete for Passcard and Identity names. ENTER
executes the default command on the 1st shown object.

searched in Yahoo, Google or other search engine. You
can add new search engines or customize default search
engines: assigned key, order of appearance, search URL.

(same as CTRL+ENTER in IE).
This feature should be enabled in RoboForm -> Options ->
