A secure and easy-to-use high-performance password management app

RoboForm is a password manager developed by US software vendor Siber Systems that balances security, ease of use, and price, and a free version with limited functionality is also available.

RoboForm encrypts the app data installed on the PC with AES-256 linked to the master password and sends it to the RoboForm server via secure communication (HTTPS), and the data decryption was authenticated with the master password. Because it runs on your local device, RoboForm's server stores only encrypted data to ensure the security of device-to-device synchronization.
