Easily Manage Website Passwords

Managing multiple website passwords is one of the more difficult tasks for agency personnel. While tools like Transformation Station and TransactNOW help with this process, there continues to be many sites that your staff goes to daily where each time they have to manually enter User ID and password information.

RoboForm is a tool that can help. I’ve been using it for a while and don’t know how I got along without it!

The program installs as part of your Web browser and manages login and passwords for you. When you log into a website, RoboForm offers to save the online login information into a Passcard after you click the Login/Submit button. The Passcard is saved into a fully encrypted file that requires a master password to access it.

Once the login information page is saved, true one-click login is available by clicking on the website name in the Passcard list. The program automatically navigates to the website’s login page, fills the stored login information into the form, and clicks the submit button. You are logged in with one click.

RoboForm can also complete a form with saved information, such as a contact information form. Your predefined contact information can be populated into a form with just one click.

The free version of RoboForm allows you to have 10 Passcards or less. Upgrading to the Desktop version ($29.95) allows you to save an unlimited number of Passcards and Identities, and comes with unlimited toll-free customer support. Or you could try out the RoboForm Everywhere license for $9.95 for the first year ($19.95 afterwards). The RoboForm Everywhere license allows you to use RoboForm software on all your Windows computers, Macs, and other mobile devices.

  1. Blaine, thanks for sharing Lastpass. I will look into it as another password management option.

  2. While Roboform is a good solution, I prefer Lastpass. We are even looking at implementing the enterprise version… which will allow managed shared passwords among all users for sites which the entire agency needs. ANY password management tool is better than using nothing… this leads to password fatigue (i.e. using the same password for everything, or all easy passwords).
