Pro Portable versions available
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. The pop-up allows creating a new entry or replacing an existing one with the information supplied. 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.
Pro RoboForm's toolbar can be used as a bookmark's bar that automatically logs in
RoboForm's toolbar allows accessing all logins and associated websites. Clicking a website will navigate the browser to the appropriate place and peform the login sequence. It even takes care of multiple identities allowing multiple people to quickly switch between, for example, webmail accounts.
