Password management: those are two words that have become increasingly important as more and more of us conduct a mjor portion of our lives and business on the web. Most people – especially those managing their own businesses – use many, many web sites requiring different user names and passwords. In an effort to remember them all, we tend to use the same ones over and over, and ones that, frankly, aren’t all that secure. It may be easy to remember your bank account password by using your kid's name, but is that the smartest way to guard your sensitive financial information? With good password management software, you can choose passwords with much greater security without worrying about forgetting that string of random letters and numbers.
While there are several popular password management programs on the market, they all pale in comparison to the joy and ease that RoboForm Pro delivers. This is one tool that makes us weep we love it so much. This is definitely one of those "absolutely cannot live without" products.
RoboForm is loaded with features, but topping the list of useful functions is Safenote. RoboForm Pro is not just a program that remembers passwords for you; it actually acts as a virtual notebook to store all sorts of valuable information. Store bank PINs, schedule appointments and meetings, and then print a copy to store in a secure location.
RoboForm Pro remembers information allowing you to fill out web forms much faster. Most browsers do this if you grant those permissions, but they do so without the same encryption algorithms that RoboForm Pro uses; they’re also clunky to use, and often unreliable from site to site. RoboForm Pro has Blowfish and AES implemented to protect that sensitive data. You’re not getting this level of piece of mind from your garden variety Internet browser. You ever notice how often you have to install security updates?
RoboForm has a great feature called Login, which actually takes you to the web site, fills out login , and submits the information - all with just one click! Now, that's slick! It’s capable of dealing with radio buttons, check boxes, and is multilingual. You’re liable to forget your own address considering how infrequently you’ll have to type it out!
RoboForm2Go is also available, which allows you to store your passwords on a flash drive and take them with you wherever you go. And not to worry! Those passwords are not stored or left in any way on those machines. It’s just another feature to give you extra piece of mind.
Installation is about as easy as it gets, with the auto-run doing most of the work for you. If you use Firefox or Netscape, you will have to install an extra adapter to run RoboForm. No worries, though, it is a simple process! If you follow the tutorials in the program, you’ll get everything up and running without frustration.
RoboForm provides great support via their complete online manual and FAQs that cover any conceivable concern. We've recieved reponses to our e-mail inquiries within hours, so if your concern isn’t covered by the manual or the FAQs, then you can take it to the next level with confidence.
Need a super-secure password that can’t be broken? RoboForm’s password generator is capable of creating a password 512 characters long, and then will remember it for you. Talk about security!
RoboForm Pro is now available for the Mac, as well, so they’re taking all comers. The price is almost ridiculously cheap for the security and value the product offers.

A drawback of using RoboForm Pro is that you’re likely to forget passwords when away from your own computer. So, it’s almost a must to purchase both RoboForm Pro and RoboForm2Go.
