Matching Passcards. RoboForm also shows passcards that match the web site you are browsing. Select one, click Fill Forms and forms will be filled from the selected passcard.

AutoSave. Login info for new sites (not previously saved by RoboForm) is saved automatically. RoboForm toolbar appears at the bottom of the window, you enter Passcards name and confirm saving of login info.

Master Password. Passcard is an encrypted file that contains login info for one web account. We use Master Password as a key to encrypt Passcards stored on server. Master Password is not stored on server, only you know it, so your data is secure. You will be asked to create Master Password when you use RoboForm for the first time.
