How Does It Work?

To use RoboForm, first thing you need to do is install the software. This can easily be done directly from the RoboForm website to any browser, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer etc. Since this password protection software is easily synced, there’s no need to update your passwords across all devices. You need to establish a secure master password for all passwords stored with the RoboForm editor. This is the most important password to remember, since it grants access to all other passwords in the vault.

Once the account has been set up, passwords can be exported to RoboForm from browsers or other password managers, including in CSV format. Any new passwords that are created can easily be transferred to RoboForm. The single-click functionality of the RoboForm password manager is its most attractive feature. Users can enter all their preferred sites at the click of a button.

Setup Setup

The setup and installation for RoboForm is pretty user-friendly. Users have access to a comprehensive tutorial which details all the steps that need to be taken to create new identities, complete registration forms and check out forms etc. The first step in the process of setting up requires the RoboForm toolbar to be added. Once the user has entered name/country to the identity, various other tabs will open for the requisite information to be completed. To save an identity setup, simply click on the save disk button on the upper right-hand corner of the screen. When it comes to completing registration and check out forms, identities can easily be used on the RoboForm toolbar. Setting this up simply requires the user to select the identity name, then RoboForm does the rest. It is possible to edit identities by simply returning to them in the toolbar and clicking on the edit button.

When it comes to secure sharing of data, RoboForm uses public/private key encryption.
