Do you have a problem remembering all the usernames and passwords to your internet accounts?
At a certain stage of internet use, both for personal and business purposes, there is a problem with remembering the numerous usernames and passwords for different accounts. In my case these are: webmail accounts, forum accounts, social bookmarking sites, Facebook, Twitter, logins to various websites and blogs… In summary, A LOT of places. To save time from remembering and filling in all this data, I have tried several solutions so far.
At the beginning I had a secret notebook to write down all these usernames and passwords. Then I decided to use the option given by Firefox to remember my data after I filled it in for the first time. I started wondering, however, how safe this really was, especially when someone else uses my computer. I’m not just talking about a scenario where my laptop may be stolen, but in the case of letting my friends use my computer to check email, etc.
Fortunately there is reliable form filler software called Roboform.
Roboform is a simple software with a really quick installation to set up your main password, which then protects all your other usernames and passwords. It is crucial to choose something difficult, and don’t use the same password as any of your other accounts! Every time you create a username and password for the first time, Roboform will ask you if it should be remembered and proposes a certain name for this combination of data, which you can then change of course. Afterwards whenever you come back to that account, Roboform will offer to fill in the data and open the account for you. Isn’t that cool? ? I admit that after one week of using that program I was impressed with how much time it saves me and how easy it is to operate.
All the data Roboform saves for you is stored in one place on your computer. You can and should make a backup copy of these files regularly.
