    I'm a Tech, so for my business and clients I'm considering other alternatives to RoboForm.

    As a Tech sure I understand the technology about all of this, just that I haven't used all the different apps and I'm just looking for some user feedback on what's been working for you and what you like, etc...

    A company I work with has me use RoboForm, to say the least I'm not happy with it, it's quite buggy and I've submitted several bug reports over the past month, the good Geek and Tech that I am, but I've also dealt with SiberSystems personally over the phone and I must admit there is a big lack of competence with this company and many of their staff I don't like... :thumbd:

    THANKS

    P.S. Since posting this I've used RoboForm, KeePass, KeePassX, LastPass, Sticky Password, Kaspersky Password Manager

    Another good one is Password Depot.

    http://www.password-depot.com/download.htm

    I own all three:

    1. Password Depot
    2. Sticky Password
    3. AIRoboform

    Both Password Depot and Sticky Password can fill web pages and Windows programs as well. The new beta version 7 of AIRoboform can also fill Windows programs too.

    Well, I can tell you that I'm quite pleased with Keepass Password Safe.

    To be honest, I don't know much about the other similar applications nor what they have to offer, but I just enjoy Keepass and the features it offers, like automatically inputing login information when opening certain websites.

    Roboform will do the same thing also.

    So how do you like Password Depot and RoboForm compared to Sticky password?

    Also I have RoboForm 7.0.69 and they told me this was a beta, then the tech support came back and said it was a final version. The company has really bad support with people that seem to not know what they are doing.

    Hey if all of these companies are using Password Depot; http://www.acebit.com/references.htm then this is pretty impressive.

    Wait a SEC here, has AceBit always developed WISE-FTP? If so I used that program like 10 years ago...



    What are you talking about? I'm asking for RoboForm alternatives...

    Oh man big yuck! :thumbd:

    I do not like the idea that I have to make an online account to store everything, this is not good for a business, at least for the free version.

    I've just tried Sticky Password, so far this is a lot better then LastGas, LOL...

    Any others guys?


    THANKS

    I have not used it recently, but I used Password Depot many years ago and I liked it. The free version (I'm cheap) would only handle a few passwords so I moved on to Keypass which I use manually. If I wanted a fully automatic replacement for Roboform I would definitely try out Password Depot. It has been around a long time and was always good.

    Password Depot seems like a really good application, but it doesn't seem very user friendly.

    Logging into sites seems like a 3 part process when using the toolbar. Click the 'Group', next click on the 'Password' section, then click, 'Open URL'.

    I don't know I just don't see a one step process like it should be, like a browser is, click a bookmark and go... Hmmm :blink:



    I don't trust keeping my stuff on their site, I want a program more like Password Depot that stores locally...

    And then that damm login, you always have to log in to keep it going or remember not to just log it out the first time you do, what a pain! :thumbd:

    LastPass is best. It,s free of OS and browser. You can configure for auto login or login via master password. many option.

    You can use it just as a browser plugin without local install.

    It's called Kaspersky Password Manager ;)

    And LastGas, I'll pass, LOL... :thumbd:

    And guess what I just noticed? Sticky Password and Kaspersky Password Manager are identical in every way, except for the graphics. So did someone buy or steal someone's code? Hmmmm :blink:

    Can you have KeePass save login info as you start to log into a site like how RoboForm does, or you have to manually add the site in the Password Safe?

    Do you use it in Firefox and if so how? Seems like every time you want to go to a site you either have to have it bookmarked or open the Password safe as Ctrl, Alt, K and open the site...

    Yeah I don't like what I'm seeing, doesn't make sense that two are identical and still being developed. I figured if you bought the rights then you aren't going to want the other one being developed so you are exclusive.

    Hmmm :blink:

    Lastpass gets my vote.
    Works well. Free. I trust them.
    No login problems using lastpass for me.

    There are two excellent other solutions I know of :

    TK8Safe, which is excellent and quite reliable
    and a new solution still in Beta but quite efficient;
    1password for windows (it's a must have on a Mac)

    Let me give you some real input, DasFox.

    You are not doing this company a favor by starting a personal mission and find another personal favorite. If bugs are in the way of your functioning for this company, then you should file bug reports with Customer Support of Roboform. I'm sure that your company has a service agreement.

    What kind of information are you looking for? Help us out here, I flunked the mind reading class that I took. You seem to know what you want to get from respected members here, but you let us figure it out by making untactful comments.

    I usually have great experience with Customer Support in general, and they seem to appreciate my detailed information. Support is a two direction road.

    How did you earn this entitlement of degrading expressions? From experience I have gathered that each and every solution has advantages and disadvantages. What works for other members may not work for you, but if the response here didn't help you, you might still be careful with that attitude as if we are not willing to help you.

    If you don't get the right answer, then perhaps you didn't formulate your question well.

    I used KeePass for a long time and liked it. But I have recently switched to LastPass and will never go to anything else for the foreseeable future. It's the best because everywhere I go, my passwords are with me and safe. I have found nothing else that does this nearly as well.

    As for business use, LastPass it the ultimate partner for business users. Passwords can be at every computer you use and every mobile phone. I am officially spoiled!
