Password Protection, Encryption And Generation For Everyday Use

May 16, 2008
With technology comes convenience, and the technology of the Internet grows each day allowing busy people and consumers to do more in less time. Some of the most often used Internet sites include; on-line banking, internet shopping, on-line bill paying, research at our fingertips, e-mail, instant messaging, photo image storing and creation and so much more. Not only can we communicate, pay bills complete many other day to day tasks, but we can also help our children with homework, do research, plan a vacation, make reservations (for restaurants to travel) and so many other things. But with this technology comes risks, especially as websites try to "personalize" the site to each individual, even to greeting you by name when you log in. As a result, more and more information is gathered, and to keep that information safe, more and more passwords created.

As personalization becomes standard as does our reliance on many websites to do everything from pay bills to monitoring assets the security of this information becomes of utmost importance. So, how do we complete all the forms for the sites we need as well as create passwords that are unique, unusual and that will protect our online services and accounts?

If you are like many people, you probably use one or two passwords, alternating them between sites, so you don't forget your password. Or you write them down and store them somewhere--but not too far from the computer so you don't have to go looking for them. Internet security experts, as well as many websites warn us of the dangers of an easy password as well as the dangers of having our passwords within easy access. Another situation that needs to be considered is what happens in the event of emergency, disability, illness or even death, and your family needs those passwords in order to keep your finances in order, and you are the only one who knew what your passwords are and where they are located.

Is there a safer alternative to writing them in an address book or on a piece of paper underneath my keyboard? Absolutely, there is a software system available to consumers called Roboform. This software not only generates original passwords but stores them, and personal and financial information frequently used when working online.

Roboform software completes online forms and creates securely encrypted passwords. It will even generate a random, highly safe password for you when you hit generate. It uses an artificial intelligence system that is created to identity forms, complete them as well as generate and safely store passwords, keeping your account information safe.

This form filler and password service saves time and effort as well as provides security by: managing passwords and logging you in automatically as well as filling in long forms for registration or shopping checkout with just a click. This function also cuts down on "keystrokes" making it more difficult for keylogger software to work in any possibly attempts to "steal" your information.

Roboform Features:

-The ability to create one identity, but have multiple credit cards, addresses, user names and passwords stored.

-Roboform detects and fills in drop down boxes.

-This software detects what formation of numbers need to be used, for example is the telephone number field presented in ten digits or a different format and completes the form correctly.

-Customization of information according to country locations and traditions. For example, date formats will be completed based on country location, so US dates will be month, day, year while foreign forms require day, month and year.

-Customization based on language.

-A highlight function that indicates that Roboform should only complete specific sections of the form.

Roboform Protection and Security services include:

-Encrypting passwords for increased security.

-Generation of random passwords.

-Detection of "phishing" websites and only completing forms on legitimate sites.

-Eliminates keyloggers, because the keyboard is not used to complete forms.

Roboform first became available in 1999. Because of its popularity and reliability, it has been translated into 30 languages and is used by millions around the world. Also available is RoboForm2Go, one of the first of applications that can operate from USB flash drives. RoboForm2Go is a portable version of RoboForm that allows consumers to their passwords with them and enjoy the conveyance of this service anywhere.

Roboform and Robofrom2Go are compatible with many different operating systems and software, including: Internet Explorer, AOL, MSN, Firefox, IE 7 and Vista.

The cost for a lap or desktop computer is $29.95. Roboform2Go for U 3 drives or non-U 3 drives is available for $19.95. The PALM version is $9.99. A 30 days free trial is available with a "No Questions Asked" Money Back Guarantee.

This service has been awarded PC Magazine's Editor's Choice Award, Soft32.
com's Editor's Review Award (Excellent in 5/5 categories) and the blue
ribbon FDM (Free Download Manager) User's Choice Award. Independent consumer reviews say over and over that it is "easy to use," "a quality time saver" and "fast, fast, fast."

Roboform software can not only save consumers time (and time is money in many cases) but it also protects their personal and financial information. The creation of unique passwords as well as elimination of keylogger access makes all the conveniences of using the Internet, not only convenient but safe. Financial information, online bill paying and more can be done safely and effectively, and in case of emergency your family will have the information it needs all stored in one place, permitting them one more level of security not only financially but personally.
