Passwords and Authentication
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
thank you leo for your discuss about RoboForm , but because this program is not totally free , i'm not use it , but ofcourse i saw it's wonderful advantage , and it's the first time to heard about "cute password manager" or "acess manager" but i will try it soon surely . thank you again leo .
the way you enter passwords into roboform is to visit the site and log in. roboform will capture the url and sign-on data (user id, password etc). it's that simple.
I have been using the free version of Access Manager by Citi-Software Ltd. It's very easy to use with the drag and drop feature which loads the password as you drop the user name. You can create your own password or the program will generate a unique one for you, using numbers, alpha characters (lower and upper case), and symbols in any combination. And the program provides the option of generating a printout of the password database if you choose to do so.
Roboform is safe and dead simple to use. I initially tried the free version and quickly learned what a powerful program it is. Been using it for years now and couldn't imagine going without it today. Nothing else I tried/used was near as convenient.
I'm another one that's been using Roboform for years now and can't imagine using anything else. It's ease of use and reliability makes it number one for me.
in reply to samuel davis iI have used Roboform on linux- Ubuntu, if I remember correctly. I can't say it works on all versions- and I did have it on Firefox, not the built-in browser.
Secondly, I've tried pretty much them all. I paid for the full version of Roboform and can recommend it. In fact, if you do any online banking, shopping etcetera, it is a must. It's only failing, which is its main security feature is that lost information due to crashes, forgotten main password is unrecoverable. But passwords can be reset. Lost money/identities cannot! (Well, not easily, anyway).
I am 31 years old, Roboform is Too complicated for me. I use Cute Password Manager. It's easier than Roboform.
try lastpass.com ! plugins for Linux and windows, it does the job great ! - imports from Roboform, FREE, and BETTER, no arrogance towards Linux.
I switched completely.
but how can you see the passwords again once they have been turned into ...... things? Ireally need to do this to get out of some sites and deactivate them but can't "see" the password.
I figured it out - no thanks to the "help" or FAQ at Roboform. What you do is Click on your Roboform icon thing, drop down to Identities, Print List, Put in your Master Pasword, Choose Passcards from menu bar, font, columns and then Preview. Voila! Keep in a Vault!!
