Recently switched to this after using Lastpass for years. Lastpass no longer autofilled pages and tech support was not helpful.

I am very impressed so far. It's a great password manager, and it seems that the form filling function is superior to Lastpass. There is however, some issues with the Firefox Extension. Context menu in forms does not work, and because of Mozilla's new Web Extensions, you can no longer have a toolbar at the top.

Overall, very stable, and I think it's a keeper

Lousy with Edge. Must pay for web access to share passwords. No option to use Dropbox, OneDrive, etc. No option for local use of sharing passwords between computers. Many other options are available, some free.

Also see discussions.

I've always found roboform's usability better than Lastpass.

Version 8+ adds unlimited local logins for free. There are pluses and minuses to that. To keep from shooting themselves in the foot they have removed the ability to set your password data location and there is/will be no portable version of Roboform 8.

To use the same passwords across devices, you need to upgrade to the 'everywhere' pay service (something that Lastpass gives you for free). While I don't fault them for that, I do not like having to pay on an ongoing basis for that feature.

I'm rating it as a 4 (subtracting 1 for the lack of a free portability)

LastPass all the way. I also don't like the greediness of the company.

RoboForm lost me as a customer when competition arrived.
LastPass works fine for what I use a password manager for, web browsers. Don't want and don't need a tool for application logins and it is quite annoying.

Plus RoboForm has too many issues with fast moving browsers. I can sympathize, but not accept that as a customer.

I'm firmly in the RoboForm camp now across all my devices and browsers.

I liked it better than Lastpass but it is not compatible across platforms and so I cannot sync to the cloud all platforms like Lastpass. In Linux they expect me to enable third party cookies to use their extension. And forget it if you own a Blackberry Q10. If they pick up the ball I would likely return.

Totally unnecessary with Win 8. Always causes problems with Firefox.

Here we go again....this company has LOST it's Better Business Bureau approval and now has an "F" rating with TOO MANY complaints. If you want to take a chance with a company that was removed from the BBB go for it. For me they would need to make amends and get back on the list with an "A" or "B"..

Pros: Only have to remember ONE Password

Cons: Firefox extension lacks context menu and bottom/top toolbar (Mozilla's fault)

Bottom Line: Recently switched to this after using Lastpass for years. Lastpass no longer autofilled pages and tech support was not helpful.

I have subscriptions to both Roboform and Lastpass and I prefer Roboform over Lastpass. The only reason I have Lastpass is for Linux Mint. Roboform has an extension for Firefox in Linux Mint but I have to enable third party cookies to use it which is a no no in my world. Roboform is a better app all around though in my opinion.

Persistant Bugs that are never fixed. Did not grandfather people who were promised lifetime upgrades and updates.

Here is a app close to it and is free today.

Wow..Glad to see the BBB came down on this company for screwing it's users.

"From BBB:

The revocation was due to violation of BBB Accreditation Standards:

I like it better than Lastpass. Unfortunately on Linux I have to use the Roboform Lite extension to connect to my online account. But I have to keep third party cookies enabled for it to work. Lastpass doesn't need this requirement in Linux and the log in is easier. So I prefer Roboform for Windows, but until they make a better extension for Linux I am forced to use Lastpass.
