Too Many Online Passwords??

  Posted by Elizabeth Goodman in Quick Tips Thursday, 31 December 2009 05:30

If you are anything like me, you can log into 5 - 10 websites daily. At home, it can be email, online banking, Facebook, school website for correspondence with my daughter’s teacher, and much more. At work, it is online banking, multiple vendor sites to order products, Kotori’s Facebook, our online time clock, training databases, and much more. And, of course, best security practice is to have multiple log-ins and passwords. And some websites have expirations on the passwords, so you are constantly changing them and just hoping to remember the right one before it locks you out. I used to keep a running log (including the site, user name, and password) in Word that was password protected. I just had to remember to keep updating it when I changed a password.

Last week, Jeffery asked why wasn’t I using RoboForm? My first question was, "What is it?" My next question was, "Why didn’t I know about this sooner?" RoboForm is a toolbar that goes along with your internet browser. It stores logins and passwords for websites. And you only have to remember your RoboForm password. It can also remember form information, such as name, address, email, credit cards, etc. It works with Internet Explorer and Firefox. It can also work with your iPhone, Droid, and Blackberry.  And the best part is you can get a free limited version of it, which is what I use. (In the full version, you can setup multiple user profiles, unlimited logins, unlimited support, and more.)
All you have to do is download RoboForm, go to a website that you log-in, enter your user id and password,  click on the "logins" button in the RoboForm Toolbar, click new, enter a name for the Bookmark, be sure that password-protect box is checked, and save. Then the next time you go to that same site, you will see the Bookmark name on the RoboForm toolbar, click "fill forms" or "fill and submit".

You only need to remember your RoboForm password. You will enter it the first time you use the tool bar each time you log into your computer. So if you open the browser when you come in each morning and sign into online banking, enter the Roboform password when prompted, and as long as you don’t log off your computer  the rest of the day, you don’t need to enter it when you order products at the end of the day. Just make sure that no one knows your RoboForm password, make it something easy to remember, but hard to guess, and "password protect" all logins when you save them to the list.  We don’t want all your logins to get compromised.
