I've used Roboform for a decade. It's a terrific password manager...until now. Roboform v8 has a horrible install and activation process and the number of steps to autofill a password has increased. Pros: - It WAS a great password program. If you can manage to get it installed and activated, its Login, Bookmarks, and Safenote features all operate like previous versions with a few new annoyances. Cons: - V7 and earlier has a Roboform for Desktop version which was a client version only...no cloud upload. Version 8, apparently, is called Roboform Everywhere even though the word "Everywhere" doesn't appear in the software download. - In order to upgrade from v7 to v8, you have to enter your email address and Roboform Master Password (from v7). Siber Systems then automatically creates an online Roboform Everywhere cloud account for you and automatically syncs all of your private password data to that online cloud account. No, the install does not ask you for permission to do this. - The only option for payment is now a monthly fee billed annually. - If you dig far enough into Siber Systems website, you'll discover that a free 30-day trial of Roboform Everywhere account is created in v8. If you don't start paying for Roboform Everywhere, the program reverts to "Roboform Free". It won't tell you that, however, and your previous v7 license is useless (despite the previous option to upgrade free from v7 to v8). The Help-->About screen just says "trial expired" and there's no menu entry to "Activate Roboform". See attached picture. - After my Roboform Everywhere 30-day trial expired, I deleted my Roboform Everywhere account--the one where Siber Systems tricked me into uploading to their cloud all of my private password data. I then got a popup on my computer that says an account is required to operate Roboform. See attached picture. - In previous versions, one could click a password login entry and, if the master password hadn't yet been entered, the program would ask you for the master password and then immediately fill the login fields. Now, if one clicks on the password login entry, the master password dialog box will pop up, but after that it doesn't fill the login information. The user has to go back up to the Roboform menu and click the login entry AGAIN. Roboform v8 is a trainwreck for anyone who wants privacy or who wants only a client version of the program. Choose a different program.
