Review of RoboForm on Windows.AppStorm

My review of RoboForm is up at http://windows.appstorm.net/how-to/passwords-the-right-way-with-roboform/.  This is a program I recommend with no reservations to manage the passwords to the web sites you log into.  Why is a password manager important?

You may not care if someone gets your password to a simple web app you tried one time two years ago, but if you use that same password at your bank, for PayPal, or for Facebook it might be a disaster. It’s not just small web sites thrown together quickly that have their password stolen, but large companies like Valve and Sony.

The solution? A password manager will remember and store the login information for all your websites. It allows you to quickly create random passwords for each site and then recall those credentials when you next need to log in. You use a single strong password to protect all of these passwords. Here we’ll look at the popular password manager RoboForm.
