RoboForm is a freeware program for Web browsers, Outlook and Internet Explorer that remembers your passwords for you, and fills them in automatically when you visit your favorite Web sites, or when you send e-mail. You create a profile for each of your e-mail, banking and other Web site accounts. RoboForm then automatically logs you into your favorite Web sites, fills in the passwords for you, and remembers them, so that you don't have to.
Because RoboForm remembers your passwords, you can create and use strong passwords. Strong passwords are harder to break, and they reduce the likelihood that someone else will guess your password and log into your account.
RoboForm protects your passwords and personal information by creating a "Lock Box" of your account information that contains your Web site passwords, and other protected information like your user names and notes. RoboForm uses the Lock Box to fill in passwords and personal information, so that you don't have to type your passwords.
RoboForm makes it easy to create and use strong passwords, and to access your information from multiple computers. It is available for Windows, Macintosh and Palm OS.
How RoboForm Works
To use RoboForm, you create a profile for each of your e-mail, banking and Web site accounts. When you create a new profile, you enter your user name and password for the account at the top of the profile.
Next, you enter your e-mail address and a secure password for the profile. This will be your Lock Box password, the password you will use to open the Lock Box. You don't need to remember this password. RoboForm will remember it for you, and use it to open your Lock Box, when you log into your account.
Next, you will select the Web sites that you want to store in your profile. You can do this by clicking on the Plus (+) button, and selecting the Web site. (If the Web site is not listed, click on the Other button, and enter the address manually.)
Once you have created a profile for each of your Web sites, you can use the Lock Box to fill in your user name and password automatically.
To do this, you click on the Lock icon in the Internet Explorer toolbar.
Next, you will see the Lock Box.
If you want to fill in a Web form, you click on the Web site profile.
Then, you will see the Web site name and password on the Web site form.
When you type in your e-mail address and password, RoboForm fills it in for you.
Your Password is Never Stored Unencrypted on Your Computer
RoboForm never stores your password in a form that anyone can read.
When you create a new password, RoboForm encrypts it with your Lock Box password, and then stores it in your Lock Box. When you log into a Web site, RoboForm uses its own encryption to decrypt your password, and then sends it to the Web site. When you log off, RoboForm re-encrypts your password with your Lock Box password, and stores it in your Lock Box again.
RoboForm's encryption uses a 256-bit key. It is virtually impossible to break.
Don't forget to create a password for your Lock Box!
RoboForm makes it easy to create strong passwords that are difficult to break. Your password must be at least eight characters long, and must include at least three of the following four character types: uppercase; lowercase; numbers; and special characters.
Next, you must change your password every 90 days. This is easier than it may sound. RoboForm will automatically change your password for you. All you need to do is click on the Change button.
RoboForm Makes It Easy To Use Strong Passwords and Access Your Information From Multiple Computers
RoboForm makes it easy to use strong passwords and access your information from multiple computers.
When you use RoboForm to fill in your passwords, it remembers the password for you. If you want to access the same Web site from another computer, you can just click on the RoboForm icon in your Internet Explorer toolbar, and it will automatically fill in your password.
If you get a new computer, you can install RoboForm on it. Then, you can export your information from your old computer, and import it into RoboForm on your new computer.
RoboForm works on all versions of Windows, and is available for Windows, Macintosh and Palm OS.
RoboForm also lets you create and use strong passwords, and it lets you access your information from multiple computers.
RoboForm is a very useful program, that makes it easy to create and use strong passwords and access your information from multiple computers. It is a great program for everyone! Highly recommended.
