When one buys a subscription to RoboForm Everywhere, your password and user login information are stored in the cloud. Then, from any mobile device or computer, you can then access this personal information. RoboForm’s state of the art technology has earned it CNET Download.com’s Software of the Year and PC Magazine Editor’s Choice awards.

 

As a guy who is always forgetting his passwords for the bajillion sites I have registered on, I was tired of clicking on that “Forgot Your Password?” link all the time and going through the long process of getting a new password. Because of this, I gave RoboForm a try. This is my formal assessment of it usability.

Criticism of RoboForm

I did not have any problems with RoboForm. I felt it worked quite smoothly and made my life easier. Plus, it saved me time. The only thing is that some users might find it overwhelming with all of the many extras and features available and does so much.

My only other criticism is that it costs money. Of course, you cannot find any one program out there that does as much. So, the minimal fee delivers excellent value. It essentially pays for itself within a matter of weeks.
