Re: RoboForm Password Manager
Ditto on your questions, Ryan. I know people who swear by password managers, but I wonder if it is as simple and easy to manager as people say...

Re: RoboForm Password Manager
For those of you who use a password manager I have a few questions. Does the password manager act as a single sign-on? Meaning that they will automatically log you into the portal based on a splash page. Also, I imagine they use some type of complex algorithm to generate your passwords but then you have to remember these complex passwords everywhere you go. So my question to the previous statement is does the password manager go onto multiple devices? The reason I ask is, if my password is changing after a certain amount of time and is complex as soon as I move away from the device with the password manager. If I do not have the manager on the other device there is a decent chance I might not remember it due to the complexity. Someone please shead some light on these questions. Thanks,

RoboForm Password Manager
I couldn't agree more that it is essential to have a password manager to not only create unique passwords, but to safely store and remember them for you as well.  I have been using RoboForm for about five years now, after trying out a few others, and I absolutely love it!  It even has a safe notes section to store additional information securly and I only have to remember one password now which makes my life so much easier.
