Anyone heard anything about any risks associated with Roboform and passwords. I recently read something that password managers are easily hacked. It led me to uninstall Norton Password Manager but I really hate having to type user names and passwords for websites and programs I use a lot.

I don't think that's true.
Almost all of them are encrypted so not-so-easy to hack...

There are several levels of "encryption" and lots of it is really not that hard to crack. Even Notron Password Manager is on the 'be careful' list. I am still researching Roboform but wonder if anyone has seen and "be careful" warnings anywhere.

What I meant was...
To hack them,They'll first need access to your computer/autofill server and just then decode it.
So if your computer is secure enough,You may freely use RoboForm.

OK so then the next question. Is Norton Firewall 2006 secure?

Half of the post is about getting by without paying.
Guess Roboform and 2go are pretty good because there aren't much post for help.

Does anyone has any problems with the 2 go version?

as anyone use it on a public pc etc? Any security issues?

Thanks for any feedback

I used my 2go on a hospital compter (waiting room) and on my brother's comp with no problems at all. In both cases Avant's on-line storage would have been of no use as Avant wasn't installed and I don't have the USB version. Besides, I prefer keeping my info on my own equipment, not someone else's server.
