#1 - Signing up
The process of joining Roboform couldn’t be simpler. All you need to do is download the software and create an account with your email address. It really is that simple. The email address will be needed to sync data between devices, should you need to.
The next step is choosing your master password, this isn’t stored anywhere within the programme nor the severs so bear this in mind and don’t forget it. Make sure that the master password is secure and not stored anywhere that is easy access either physically or online.
This initial process should only take a few moments of your time but keep in mind, the download speed will depend on your internet and computer. Give yourself plenty of time though and don’t do it in a rush, you’ll need to start completing the next steps to benefit from it.
Now all you have left to do is add your logins. This can be done in two ways, you can manually add the entries as you remember them or you can simply go about your business and let Roboform add them for you. An added bonus is that is Roboform can also import from CSV or another password manager, so if you are jumping ship from another company, the switch will be easy.

#2 - Memberships
Roboform is free for one user with one device but it gives you unlimited logins and automatically fills in forms for you. This is perfect if you just want to use one device to do all your surfing on but if you need more devices, there are other options you can upgrade to.
The ‘Individual’ membership offers you the basic package and more, such as access on all devices (allowing you to sync the information to your phone as well), you can share logins securely and has support 24/7 if you need help. This membership costs $23.88 a year, that’s a measly $1.99 a month, a fantastic price! Imagine never having to type in or remember a password again for the price of a coffee. Sounds like music to my ears!
A family membership which saves you an absolute tonne of money. Unlike other password protection programs, Roboform has a great family solution. This option will give up to 5 users an “Everywhere” membership for just one yearly price of $47,75.Back to top ↑
