Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Passwords and Authentication
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
But, Gil, KeePass's (or just about any other program's, for that matter) database location can be personalized to taste, too. So, what's the real problem...?
Roboform is also available on-line. You create an online account (usual login/password) and then you can access your passwords etc by supplying your Robofrom password.
This service is included with Roboform and automatically sychronizes with your browser. This may help others as well as the original caller using a Mac.
I know this means giving your passwords to the cloud but you have to trust someone - don't you?!
I have used RoboForm for a couple of years. I have it installed on one desktop, one notebook and on a USB drive which I use for my netbook and on other computers.
RoboForm is simply great and I also use GoodSync PRO (also by SiberSystems) to synchronize my computers and the passwords between them.
One component of RoboForm that was not mentioned in this article is the "Safe Notes" which is also useful.
I completely enjoy reading the articles on Ask Leo. Keep up the good work!
Roboform is the best! I have the program on both my Desktop and my Laptop for over 2 years and rely on it completely. At age 72, I am very active on both my computers for business, research, shopping, as well as friends/family communication. It's a good buy, for what it does!
RoboForm also has a portable version which can be installed on a USB thumbdrive. I find it very useful for traveling.
The big thing that separates RoboForm from other password safes is it doesn't just remember the passwords, it installs as a browser toolbar and takes you directly to the website and logs you in with a single click--opening the site and filling in both user name and password. The portable version does this on any computer you stick the thumbdrive in.
As a bonus, it also generates secure passwords up to 511 characters long.
While Firefox 3.6 says it doesn't work with that version, I've had no problems.
What about password i use LoginTrap.Itís prog can capture every login events by using iSight.It really good prog.
Just tried LoginTrap, thank you. Really good!!!
I have used Roboform Everywhere for some time now. This is the same as the standard Roboform but as it resides on a flash drive it will work on any computer (Windows or Android) into which the flash drive is inserted. It is totally secure as only I (and certain trusted relatives in the case of my death) know the master password which unlocks the encryption.
I find Roboform a very difficult program to use. All it really has done for me so far is to slow down my access to the web. I am just about to remove it.
