For those of you who’ve read my article on How I’d Hack Your Passwords, you eventually got to the part where I recommend using a password manager to organize and protect your passwords so you don’t use weak ones everywhere.
Well, for years I’ve been recommending Roboform and even put together a Roboform Tutorial for their great desktop version for Windows and even Mac. Their iPhone app is also in wide circulation, and I think they had a really basic Android app out previously, but for Android users (like me) I’ve got a world exclusive first screenshot of the soon to be released app.
To quote my super secret source:
In the initial release it will work as a viewer primarily for Logins, Identities, and Safenotes. Automated login functionality will also be available similar to the iPhone app. (A RoboForm Everywhere (Online) account is required.)
We don’t have a lot of detail beyond this, but I suspect that what it means is that if you are using Roboform on your desktop you can sync your data to the cloud, and then in turn sync it to the Android platform for access on the go.
I don’t think you’ll be able to add new data on the app initially, but I’d imagine that’s something they’ll be adding in a later iteration. It does sound to me like this Android app is going to actually store your passwords on the device and simply sync from the cloud periodically to keep everything up to date.
What do you think? Have you used the current version of the app, and if so what are you hoping to see in this completely revamped version?
