The best of Keepass and LastPass

about RoboForm · ·

LastPass has a nice design, but it's a BAD IDEA! It relies upon SSL. The Heart Bleed flaw proved SSL should not be relied upon. If LastPass were redesigned to not utilize SSL it would be fine. I cannot speak to RoboForm's other versions, but the Windows version stores your data on your own machine, with no SSL "protecting" your master password. Keepass has two flaws. A rude-sounding name, and ridiculously manual controls.

My conclusion is that if you want to have a modern web "experience", then use RoboForm. Well, you could also use LastPass, but comparatively MUCH more risky. A form filler and password manager, with seamless integration (eventually websites will facilitate this with more direct communication) is as important to the web as the hyperlink, especially as security becomes more and more important.

Toolbars can be disabled

about RoboForm · ·

Lots of bad comments about Roboform's toolbar don't make sense. Every web browser lets you hide toolbars.

Roboform's mobile app does not require a premium subscription unlike lastpass.

Roboform's native Google Chrome extension is the only Roboform browser addon that isn't a toolbar. I suppose that if you only used Chrome, Roboform isn't that obtrusive.

However, only being able to save 10 passwords on the free version seems... crippling. Once again, I recommend LastPass.

Though Roboform is good for filling reward surveys, I would not tolerate its user interface in everyday use. Roboform installs a toolbar on all of your browsers. I hate toolbars.

I recommend Lastpass over Roboform, mostly because Lastpass only adds a small, unobtrusive icon to your browser's interface, while Roboform just has to stick their service right in your face with their unnecessary toolbars.

I found Roboform's form filler pretty useful for filling in surveys from rewards sites (I inputted false information, of course).
