Pro Sophisticated form fill
In addition to being capable of filling in usernames and passwords even in places other popular password managers tend to fail, RoboForm can also fill in a wide variety of other form fields such as long registration or checkout forms that require personal, credit card, banking and other information.
To enable form fill functionality an identity has to be created and all relevant information supplied. It's possible to use multiple identities and identities created from login credential entries. In case of multiple identities a drop-down will offer choice in which to use.
Pro Adding new passwords and updating existing one's requires little manual work
When logging in a website for the first time, RoboForm will offer to save the login credentials via a pop-up.

And if a password has been changed without updating the entry in RoboForm, the application will offer to update the password next time it's used.
