Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
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.
Pro Virtual keyboard support for added security
If worried about keyloggers, you can use a virtual keyboard to log in.
Pro Fingerprint verification
Some fingerprint readers can be set up to be used to access RoboForm instead of a master password.
Pro Strong Password Generator
Choose the length and characters you want to use and get a great random password that is one click copy and then saved in Roboform. Quick and effective.

Pro Free tier
Roboform for desktop permits the user one license to install one system for free. Paid version, Roboform Everywhere, offers syncronization across multiple platforms for a yearly subscription fee.
Pro Automatic lock
GateKeeper automatically locks the computer as soon as the user leaves the proximity.
Pro Continuous authentication
Rather than traditional 2FA that only authenticates at one point in time, GateKeeper continues to authenticate even after the user is logged in. This way, there is truly 100% security 24/7.
Pro No passwords to type
Typing passwords sucks and this device makes it so you don't have to remember any passwords.
Pro Faster EHR login!
No complicated 2fa or extra steps. I login to my workstation and the passwords all auto-fill on websites and available for on-premise EHR.
Pro Password manager for computers and applications
Not just for websites, but get into your computer and software applications too.
Pro Automatic authentication
Doesn't rely on the user typing a password or an OTP code - works with presence.
Pro RDP and Thin Clients
When you login to an RDP session, the Gatekeeper key pushes your passwords through so you can use them with thin clients.
Pro Best customer service!
There's always something that we need help with and gatekeeper is always there to save us. Best customer service, ever. They dont treat you different for being a smaller client.
Pro Audit reports
No more wondering which employee logged into which workstation when.
Pro Touch to login
Using a key to touch the computer to login is so much easier than memorizing different passwords.
Pro Switch workstations without typing passwords again
Really fast login, so if you have a annoying timeout policy, gatekeeper keeps you logged in as long as you're still there.
Con Does not help with updating weak and old passwords
You will have to step through the entries yourself.
Con Apart from automations, it's no better than Keepass
Put a key file to a small pendrive and you're set. At least with Keepass you can sync the database and key file to reduce the effect of human errors.
