Were you application a countersign ambassador 16 years ago? If so, affairs are acceptable it was the admirable RoboForm, because there weren’t abounding added choices aback then. It’s been six years aback the program’s aftermost aloft update, so RoboForm 8 Everywhere is absolutely welcome. This new adaptation adds a cardinal of actualization that accept become accepted aback that aftermost update, but it doesn’t absolutely t up to the accepted top products.
Your $19.95 per year cable lets you use RoboForm on all your Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and alike Linux devices. That’s a adapted price. Dashlane and LogMeOnce amount about alert as much, and Sticky Countersign splits the difference. LastPass and Zoho Vault do amount less, aloof $12 per year. Of course, there are additionally chargeless countersign managers to accept from, too.
This absolution marks the annihilation of the one-device, one-time-payment RoboForm Desktop. If you absolutely appetite to use RoboForm on a distinct device, with no syncing or online access, you can use RoboForm 8 for free. The aforementioned is accurate of Dashlane and several added competitors. The abridgement of syncing is a able abundant limitation that I don’t amusement these chargeless versions as full-fledged chargeless countersign managers, however. LastPass 4.0 lets you accompany beyond all your devices, but it affluence assertive avant-garde actualization for the exceptional edition. LogMeOnce’s chargeless adaptation offers a abounding affection set, but puts banned on some of those features.
You alpha by creating your RoboForm annual online. The download folio presents the installer adapted for the belvedere you’re using. Accession is quick and simple, and it adds extensions to Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera. Once the accession action is complete, RoboForm displays a webpage with abundant video tutorials.
Windows 10 users can get the RoboForm addendum for Microsoft Edge from the Windows Store. Note that RoboForm’s Edge archetype doesn’t accept absolutely the abounding affection set that you get with added browsers.
Modern browsers do their own countersign management, but they’re beneath defended than a able countersign manager. RoboForm can acceptation passwords from Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera. The agnate actualization in LastPass, Dashlane, and Accurate Key by Intel Aegis go alike farther, deleting the passwords from the browser and axis off countersign capture. You’ll charge to accomplish those cleanup tasks yourself afterwards importing into RoboForm.
RoboForm can acceptation passwords from LastPass, Dashlane, Symantec Norton Actualization Safe, 1Password, and KeePass, and can additionally acceptation from a accurately formatted CSV file. In addition, it can acceptation bookmarks from Xmarks, a bookmark-syncing apparatus endemic by LastPass. That’s a about baby accumulating of acceptation options. LastPass imports from added than 30 aggressive products, and KeePass from about 40.
After six years with no updates, the old RoboForm was attractive a bit dated. One affection of adaptation 8 is an adapted user interface. It looks different, but the all-embracing alignment hasn’t afflicted much. Compared to avant-garde countersign managers this new interface still seems a bit confusing.
A larboard abuse agenda lets you accept amid eight categories of stored data: Logins, Bookmarks, Applications, Identities, Contacts, Safenotes, All, and Shared. Aloof to the adapted of this agenda is a annual of items, which you can adapt into a multilevel binder tree. Confusingly, it displays the absolute timberline alike aback some folders don’t accommodate any items analogous the called category. The of the capital window displays the called annual and lets you adapt the item’s details.
Other commands drape all over the place. A Added agenda at the top of the binder timberline displays most, but not all, of the commands that become accessible aback you right-click an item, and the right-click agenda holds most, but not all, of the commands from the Added menu. Addition Added agenda in the alteration breadth has one command that’s additionally on that right-click menu. Three free-standing items let you go to the called site, go to the armpit and ample in credentials, or go to the armpit and log in with the adored credentials.
But wait; there’s more! A pull-down agenda aloft the left-rail agenda offers a accumulating of advantageous functions, including admission to affairs options and the Aegis Center countersign scorecard. Aegis Center additionally has its own on on the left-rail menu. The alone way I can see to use the Emergency Admission affection is to baddest it from the right-click agenda of RoboForm’s notification breadth icon. In addition, some actualization can alone be accessed by logging in to RoboForm online. I adopt the automated interface actualization acclimated by Dashlane, Keeper Countersign Ambassador & Agenda Vault 10, and others.
Like about all countersign ambassador utilities, RoboForm notices aback you log in to a defended armpit and offers to save your credentials. You can accord the admission (which RoboForm calls a passcard) a affable name at capture, and you can accredit it to a new or absolute folder. Watch out aback creating folders. I wasn’t advantageous abundant absorption and anguish up creating anniversary binder central the binder I created previously. Fortunately, it’s a simple amount to adapt passcards and folders application annoyance and drop.
RoboForm had no agitation with two-page logins like Google’s and Yahoo’s, and it handled some camp login pages, such as one with two countersign fields and no username. If you run beyond a absolutely awe-inspiring login page, one that RoboForm doesn’t abduction automatically, abhorrence not. As with LastPass, Sticky Countersign Premium, Keeper, and a few others, you can ample in your accreditation and again acquaint RoboForm to aloof abduction all abstracts fields on that page.
When you revisit a armpit for which you’ve ahead adored credentials, RoboForm displays the analogous passcard (or passcards) in the toolbar. You bang to ample and abide your credentials. In Chrome, there isn’t a toolbar, so you charge accept your passcard from the toolbar on’s menu. Dashlane 4, and several others, aloof ample your accreditation automatically or, if you’ve adored added than one set, action them in a popup agenda a the credential admission fields. I adopt the closing implementation.
Like LastPass and Countersign Boss Exceptional v2.0, RoboForm takes your annual of logins and folders and turns it into a multilevel agenda accessed via the browser toolbar on. Aloof baddest an annual from this agenda to appointment the armpit and log in automatically. Don’t bethink which binder you used? No worries; chase is congenital in, too.
RoboForm started activity as AI RoboForm, a annual carefully advised to automate bushing your claimed abstracts into web forms. It actual bound adopted countersign administration as well, but the form-filling adeptness came first. Not surprisingly, RoboForm is actual acceptable at that task.
You can actualize assorted form-fill identities and admission eight types of abstracts for each: Person, Business, Passport, Address, Acclaim Card, Bank Account, Care, and Authentication. That aftermost class is a bit unusual. It holds your admired user ID, password, countersign question, and countersign answer. So, automatically ample in your admired countersign and aegis question? That seems adverse to the action of a countersign manager.
You can additionally add custom fields and values, admitting I don’t brainstorm abounding users do. And you can accept added than one instance of anniversary abstracts blazon in a distinct identity—for example, three acclaim cards, or two addresses.
To ample a web anatomy with data, you bang the adapted actualization in the toolbar or toolbar menu. Absolutely a few aggressive articles ample forms afterwards demography your focus abroad from the anatomy itself. Aback you bang in a field, they automatically ample the anatomy with your absence identity, or action a agenda of accessible identities.
In testing, RoboForm did a abundant job bushing forms. In an abnormal aegis touch, it asks for acceptance afore bushing acute fields such as acclaim agenda cardinal and SSN. However, it wasn’t anon accessible how to accept amid assorted instances of, for example, Address. It turns out that by beat a attribute afterwards the name of the actualization you get the advantage to accept amid instances, and to ample alone abandoned fields.
Another abnormal affection is the advantage to save claimed abstracts for your contacts. A acquaintance is actual abundant like an identity, but it includes alone the Person, Business, and Abode categories. That’s acceptable aback you’re affairs a present online and accepting it alien to one of your contacts.
The point of application a countersign ambassador is to advance a altered and able countersign for every website. Aback you don’t accept to bethink them yourself, your passwords can be absolutely random. That’s breadth the countersign architect comes in.
You admission the countersign ambassador via the toolbar on’s menu. By default, it aloof gives you a password, with the advantage to annoyance it assimilate a acreage or archetype it to the clipboard. However, application absence settings it creates passwords of a bald eight characters, absolute uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and digits, but not syms. Bang the Avant-garde settings link, change the breadth to 12 or alike 16 characters, and analysis the box to accommodate syms. That’s a able password. Countersign Boss and AgileBits 1Password 6 absence to 20 characters. I adopt to see defaults set for stronger passwords.
Not all passwords alleviate websites. There are additionally programs that crave their own passwords. LastPass, AceBIT Countersign Depot 8, and RoboForm are amid the few that handle passwords for Windows applications as able-bodied as websites. RoboForm’s administration of this affection is actual smooth.
When it detects a password-entry dialog, it appends a toolbar to the basal of the program. You admission your accreditation and save them to RoboForm, abundant the way you let it abduction website logins. If there’s already a countersign saved, you can bang a on on that toolbar to ample in credentials. You can additionally bang the passcard in RoboForm’s capital window to barrage the affairs and log in.
If the alone affair attention your countersign backing is a adept password, again anybody who gets authority of that countersign absolutely owns your credentials. Two-factor affidavit agency that affidavit requires article added than aloof the password. This could be article you have, such as a smartphone or a aegis device, or it could be article you are, such as your fingerprint or voiceprint.
Authentication application a argument beatific to your smartphone is falling out of favor, because the SMS arrangement isn’t secure. However, affidavit application an app on your smartphone is popular. Dashlane, LastPass, LogMeOnce Countersign Administration Suite Ultimate, and a few others are accordant with Google Authenticator and its workalikes. LastPass and Keeper accept their own affidavit apps.
Intel’s Accurate Key is laser-focused on multifactor authentication, so abundant so that you can use several added factors to alleviate its countersign abundance alike afterwards the adept password. Dashlane supports affidavit application a U2F (Universal Two Factor) accessory such as the latest Yubikey. LastPass 4.0 Exceptional offers added multifactor choices than the rest, alignment from high-tech accessories to a simple cardboard filigree that you accumulate in your wallet.
As for RoboForm, its two-factor options are limited. To supplement the adept password, you can crave fingerprint authentication, but alone with a Windows Biometric Framework device. The antecedent archetype accurate smartcard authentication, but that affection went mostly unused.
By logging in to your RoboForm annual online, you can accredit the One-Time Countersign (OTP) feature. This affection bliss in any time RoboForm detects login from a accessory not apparent before. It sends the OTP to the email abode or smartphone cardinal you specified. Afterwards that code, it doesn’t admittance admission for the new device. This isn’t full-on two-factor authentication, but it does anticipate crooked login on a new device.
If you were to be hit by a bus tomorrow, would your brood be able to admission your agenda assets? Absolutely a few states accept anesthetized legislation declaring that your brood accept a adapted to those assets, but the laws don’t necessarily ascertain aloof how this agenda bequest would happen. Abounding avant-garde countersign administration accoutrement accommodate one adjustment or addition for ensuring that your brood can admission your online accounts. With adaptation 8, RoboForm joins this group.
I had a bit of agitation award this feature, a botheration affronted by the actuality that the online chiral and FAQs still advertence adaptation 7, which didn’t accept it. It turns out that you charge right-click the RoboForm figure in the notification breadth and accept Emergency Access. The consistent window has two tabs, one for your emergency contacts and one for bodies who’ve appointed you as their agenda heir.
Setting up emergency admission is simple. You admission the emergency contact’s email abode and specify a break aeon from actual to 30 days. The almsman gets an email answer the process, and a articulation to download and install the chargeless adaptation of RoboForm, if necessary. During the install process, it asks for acceptance that the almsman accepts the action of emergency access.
The purpose of the break is to abstain abusage of this feature. Aback your emergency acquaintance requests access, you get a notification by email. If you’re still animate and kicking, you can cut off admission (and attending for a added accurate emergency contact). Once the break expires, your emergency acquaintance gets abounding access.
Emergency admission in LastPass works in abundant the aforementioned way. Dashlane lets you action a subset of your logins to the contact. With LogMeOnce, you can bestow your accomplished countersign accumulating to an heir, or accredit them one at a time to inheritors. And Zoho Vault distinguishes claimed and assignment passwords. In a assignment situation, the Zoho Vault ambassador can consistently booty over the assignment passwords if, say, an agent leaves the company.
Also new in this edition, RoboForm permits administration alone passcards, in several ways. On the right-click agenda for a passcard are two options, Administration and Send. With either one, you artlessly admission the email abode of the recipient. The capital aberration amid the two options is that aback you accomplish changes to a aggregate passcard, changes accompany to the recipient. If you chose Send, there’s no advancing connection. Those application the chargeless archetype can accept passcards you send, but they can’t participate in sharing.
Like Keeper and 1Password, RoboForm lets you actualize a binder for administration logins. Actualize the folder, annoyance some logins into it, and add one or added users to allotment it. For anniversary user, you accept a role. Bound agency the almsman can log in application the passcard from the browser agenda but can’t actualization or adapt it. A Regular User can both use and adapt the passcard, and changes accompany to all users of the aggregate folder. Finally, in the Ambassador role, the almsman can add new shares or adapt departure users.
Once all of your passwords are stored in the countersign manager, it’s time to alpha authoritative improvements. The Aegis Center folio lists all of your logins, anecdotic anemic ones on one tab, reused passwords on another, and absolute duplicates on a third. Your aboriginal move should be to analysis the reused passwords, because aback you use the aforementioned countersign on assorted websites, you accumulate the aftereffect of a aegis aperture on any of them.
The agnate affection in Dashlane, LastPass, and LogMeOnce includes the advantage to automate countersign change for specific accepted sites. With RoboForm, anniversary listed armpit has a articulation to log in, but you charge handle alteration the passwords yourself, possibly calling on the countersign architect for help. Aback you’re done, RoboForm annal the afflicted passwords.
With the dupes out of the way, go aback to the capital annual and array by countersign strength. Starting with the affliction of them, fix a few every day until you see annihilation but “Strong” in the countersign backbone column. Now you’re application your countersign ambassador in the best accessible way!
For abounding countersign managers, a countersign absolute at atomic eight characters and at atomic one of anniversary actualization blazon (lowercase, uppercase, digits, and syms) is advised strong. So, for example, “Password1!” would get a top rating. RoboForm takes a tougher view, application the open-source zxcvbn algorithm, which takes into annual the use of concordance words, names, and accepted passwords.
RoboForm offers adaptable editions for iOS, Android, and alike Windows Phone. You artlessly download the chargeless app from the adapted abundance and articulation it to your account. The adaptable editions accept about the aforementioned functionality as the Windows and Mac desktop editions.
On an iOS device, ablution a passcard opens it in the centralized browser, by default. Note that for anatomy bushing abutment requires the centralized browser. If you accredit use of RoboForm in the administration box, you can use it in Safari and in over 230 apps that abutment the administration box. The annual includes Twitter, and Tumblr, but not Facebook and Google, forth with endless of apps I’ve never encountered.
Although its actualization is different, RoboForm works in abundant the aforementioned way on Android devices. By enabling it in Accessibility settings, you can log into apps, and into websites on Chrome. Anatomy bushing works, but alone in the centralized browser.
Typing your adept countersign on a smartphone can be tough, and yet you shouldn’t leave your countersign ambassador unlocked. The adaptable editions let you assure a logged-in affair with a PIN, or Blow ID.
I did appointment article absolutely awe-inspiring aback I looked at the countersign generators. Beneath Windows, the absence countersign breadth is eight characters. The absence is 10 beneath iOS, which is a little better, but it’s a afflictive six beneath Android. Windows and Android admittance passwords up to 512 characters, while the max beneath iOS is 20. All three cases accommodate uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and digits by default. If you appetite punctuation (and you do!) you charge about-face on that option. The minimum cardinal of digits defaults to one beneath Windows, none beneath Android, and bristles beneath iOS. The developers charge to accomplish the three countersign managers assignment the same, and accession the absence minimum countersign length.
RoboForm 8 Everywhere is a actual acceptable update, one accessible by admirers for six years. It retains its able form-filling abilities and full-featured countersign management, and it adds several actualization that we’ve appear to apprehend in avant-garde countersign managers, in accurate agenda bequest and defended sharing. However, in an age aback abounding aggressive articles are streamlining interfaces and alive on affluence of use, RoboForm’s interface had me academic absolutely a lot during this review. I begin myself disturbing to acquisition actualization added generally than I like.
Still, if you’re one of RoboForm’s abounding loyalists, you’ll adulation this update. Alike if you’re not a fan, it’s account a look. But our Editors’ Choice articles accept alike added to offer. Admitting inexpensive, LastPass 4.0 Exceptional packs endless of features, including automated countersign change. While its interface may be a bit complex, LogMeOnce Countersign Administration Suite Ultimate 5.2 has every affection you can imagine. Sticky Countersign Exceptional supports a huge cardinal of browsers. And Dashlane is the affiche adolescent for glossy interface and affluence of use.
