I use RoboForm to manage website passwords and this week I found a little shortcut for helping me login to a site even quicker than I already do.
With the internet moving along at 500mph it seems nowadays every site you visit requires you to create a user account either before you can post comments, view content or socialise with other members.
I wrote a short article about RoboForm and since then I now have hundreds of passwords stored and without RoboForm automating my logins, browsing multiple sites would become tiresome.
Why not use the browser to store passwords?
Yes browsers do store passwords but they are not totally secure. Anyone who has access to your computer can access your private sites and act as you. Browser’s can be hacked and if you have all the passwords stored in your browser then they are also stored somewhere within your computer system and probably unencrypted. Also if your computer crashed you could easily loose all your passwords.
As I work with MemberGate I can find myself visiting nearly hundred different sites a day and having RoboForm synched across multiple computers means I can always access my password and I only have to remember one password.

What password manage do you use?
I’ve been looking for a password manager for my iPhone as it would be extra handy to sync my paswords onto my phone. If you know of something please let me know.
