    Is Roboform safe to use or is there a better alternative? So many passwords to keep track of and not a good enough memory.

    While I cannot comment on Roboform (have never used it) - I am very happy with Keepass (open source and free).:D

    For Firefox I have found Autofill Forms + Secure Login to be a good replacement.

    Theres nothing wrong with Roboform though; I think its very good.

    I also use KeePass 1.x. It has always worked well for me...

    RoboForm is excellent. High praise here.

    I've been using Roboform for a few years now and I don't know what I'd do without it.

    I started with the free version but I think that it is limited to 10.

    I purchased the pro version which is unlimited and it was money well spent.

    Can't say enough good things about this software.

    Good luck.

    Roboform is rock solid-over the years I have checked out alternatives,but always prefer it.

    Upgrades are frequent and free. Its designed in an easy to use and logical manner.

    Hi Guys,

    Roboform is wonderful, started using it when Symantec's password program failed. Took allot of work to finally be Symantec free, I guess I'm anti-Symantec.


    Take Care

    Roboform is one of the few apps I've gladly paid for and it took only a few days. If you knew what a cheapskate I am that's high praise :)

    Thanks for all the replies. I installed Roboform and it is pretty slick. I am already ready to pay for it!

    Never used roboform but I've often used comodo ivault. You enter the website address along with username and password for that site and it creates a link which you can use to automatically login to that site. Then you can lock the vault so no one can access the links.

    I use Password Scrambler from onepassword.com.
    It's free, it supports both Internet Explorer and Firefox.

    It does not store any password anywhere, because it regenerates the scrambled password every time again.
    I'm convinced that one-way password encryption on-the-fly is the most secure solution available.

    I have used Roboform and liked it but tried out KeePass and have been using it ever since. Works great with Fx and I imagine any other browser.
