    Good stable software that runs reliably on my PC. However, there could be a few more features.

    If I had to give the password manager a grade, it's definitely be a C.

    Compared to other software, the password manager has various advantages but also some let-downs.

    Good range of functions with all the important features. If you buy the software, you can get the essentials – no more and no less.

    Blane

    Data can be imported and exported, but there are other programs that offer a much wider range of choices.

  • Burke

    Even if operation is a bit too complicated, I still like the password generator.

    Adam
    07/11/2019

    The "form filling" function works quite well. I am satisfied.

    Juan
    06/11/2019

    Operation is not quite as simple as the company said it would be.

    Mckenzie
    05/11/2019

    An additional security measure in the form of two-factor authentication would be ideal.

    Sharmin
    04/11/2019

    I don't think that the synchronization function is consistently reliable and it also takes quite some time.

  • Lindsey

    The program does not have a lot of special features. The developers seem to have only focused on the essentials.

    Barry
    02/11/2019

    Although beginners might need a bit more time to get settled at the beginning, they will then be able to operate the software without problems.

    Vlad

    I am satisfied with the price and the software. Maybe the developers can drop the price a little.

    They could be a little bit easier to reach; other than that, there is nothing bad I can say about it.

Overview

Siber Systems, inc is a private company headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia. The company was founded in 1998 and published its first software by the name of “RoboForm” in 1999. This is available as a private version and as a business edition.

Since being published, the password manager has been translated into 30 different languages with improvements in a number of areas. Another version has been available for mobile devices from 2004 onwards, called RoboForm2Go. The software generates and manages secure passwords and other sensitive data. Users receive a unique master password and benefit from strong AES-256 encryption.

RoboForm is an intelligent combination of a password manager, digital wallet, and web form filler that runs on many platforms. The software can be downloaded free of charge and tested for 30 days. Support is available to users via email and a ticket system.

Installation & set-up

RoboForm can either be purchased online or downloaded as a trial version. Users must create a free RoboForm account for purchase. After downloading the file, installation starts with a simple double-click. A Wizard does almost all the work and guides users through the installation process.

 

Additionally, RoboForm checks which browsers are available on the computer and automatically installs the necessary extensions (add-ons). Upon completion of the installation, users are directed to the RoboForm website. Here, users can check whether the browser extensions are working and have direct access to a helpful step-by-step guide.

Password generator

To use RoboForm, a secure master password must first be created. Users are from then on only able to access the software’s secure database using this master password. All saved passwords and registration data are thus reliably protected. When creating the master password, users are shown how strong their password is and are cautioned that this password cannot be reset. RoboForm can simply take over existing passwords or generate completely new passwords. The latter is definitely recommended in terms of security. All weak passwords can be replaced step-by-step with only little effort.

With the simple click of a button, RoboForm’s Password Generator creates unique and strong passwords. Users can individually customize the password generation and set various options. Among other things, the length of the passwords and the use of upper and lower-case letters, numbers, and special characters can be set. The “Exclude similar characters” option is particularly handy. This function is not available in numerous competing products. RoboForm uses JavaScript to check the password strength of every generated password.

RoboForm is compatible with most browsers and automatically installs an extension. This takes a lot of work off users’ shoulders. The software fills in all online forms by itself with the correct registration data and passwords. The software imports the existing passwords from other password managers and integrates all browser data into its secure database. Especially handy: Users can set up and use multiple identities with different data sets if required. RoboForm fills in all the fields in the browser with a simple click of the mouse.

Saving passwords

The password manager can import all existing passwords, various registration data, and personal information into its secure database in just a few clicks. The strong AES-256 SSL encryption, which has been in use by the military for years, makes sure that the information stored in the RoboForm database cannot be accessed by unauthorized persons. Users can only access the database with the master password, and even the developers do not know this password. The handy “Everywhere” function lets users retrieve the stored data on computers, laptops, and many other devices. The handy web access only requires an internet connection and the master password.

RoboForm not only works with all major browsers, but also works with any software that requires access data. Thus, the password manager takes a lot of work off the users’ hands and speeds up daily processes. RoboForm automatically logs off after every user change, when the screen saver is activated, and after a set period of time. The master password must thus be entered again for security reasons. All information is stored permanently in the software and transmitted exclusively via encrypted connections.

In the Security Center, users can access all stored passwords and find out, for example, which passwords they use on multiple pages. In addition, RoboForm can store all credit card and billing information and file the important software licenses as SafeNotes. The password manager gives users direct access to their bookmarks and to all their contacts. If desired, users can export their saved passwords and registration data, use the data in other programs, or create backups.

Special additional features

The software from Siber Systems can be used without limitations on mobile platforms and has other useful features. If the existing level of security precautions is still not sufficient for users, an additional 2FA (two-factor authentication) process can be set up. Using a smartphone app, users authenticate themselves when they log in to RoboForm and must enter the 2FA code in addition to their master password.

 

With a family plan, users can share RoboForm with their children, spouse, or other family members. Users can also allow others to access their stored information. The handy emergency access function gives other trusted contacts instant access to important information in special cases.

User-friendliness & compatibility

The RoboForm user interface is characterized by a modern and clear design. The developers have translated the software into various languages. It can be installed in just a few minutes and is easy to operate, also for beginners. RoboForm supports numerous operating systems and runs on many mobile devices. The software works on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux systems and is available as an app for iOS and Android devices. The program runs exclusively on Macintosh computers with an Intel processor.

Help & support

RoboForm purchasers can contact Customer Support via email or using the advanced support system. Customers generally receive an answer within 1–2 hours. The friendly staff only speak English, but are available to you from Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. With the 30-day satisfaction guarantee, the password manager can be returned without any issues if users aren’t fully satisfied. Customers will be reimbursed the entire purchase price. RoboForm has a very good reputation in trade press and among users. The password manager is recommended, among others, by the “New York Times”, “Bloomberg”, and the “Wall Street Journal”.

Summary

RoboForm has been on the market for many years now and the experienced developers constantly add improvements. Although the password manager has been around for the while, it still boasts a crisp, youthful design and intuitive operation. The RoboForm generator does an excellent job and creates secure passwords. The SSL-encrypted database, which can only be accessed using a master password, stores all your important information. Access can be further secured by means of 2FA. RoboForm runs on most operating systems and can be used on mobile devices. Users have web access to their data from anywhere and can also grant access to others.
