I would avoid Roboform and use Firefox given the choice.

Simples!

Unbelievable !!!!! People are in such a HUGE hurry. What's wrong with having a
small notepad file for each site & password stored in a folder called "PASSWORDS"
I have forty-two sites and passwords stored in a folder. Probably takes a whole ten seconds longer than Robowhatever.
And for a few seconds you'd risk all of your security ???????????????
Unbelievable !!!!!

That folder is encrypted? Roboform stores the passwords encrypted, and does the form filling for you. It is not a security risk, such as plain text passwords in a file might be. A Guy

I'm talking about thousands of usernames and passwords here. Try to that manually. I know my time is precious.

And to some random guy up there, free isn't better, I thought all Americans understand that better than the rest of the world. Alas, wrong. You use lastpass for free because other people use premium version and paid the premium for you. Same thing applies to Roboform lite. Nothing wrong with using either free or paid version. You enjoy lower cost, I enjoy richer user experience, that all.

No, they might not be. They are.

You could be sharing your password textfile/folder/whatever it is with the whole world and not know it anytime you turn any kind of sharing on.

Anytime you get a trojan or keylogger or other spyware on your system, you're making it very easy for them to simply read all your passwords without even having to go into the browser's (or Roboform's) database, only to find such database already encrypted.

I could go on like this...but just think your own words over for a minute, for your own sake.

I say might be, as they might be in an unencrypted folder. If they are unencrypted, they ARE insecure. I was giving you the benefit of the doubt. A Guy
