Once installed, RoboForm is accessible as a browser toolbar.rnThe initial configuration process requires you to enter a master password,rnwhich is used to protect your form data. RoboForm provides a mind-bogglingrnnumber of fields you can populate, ranging from basic contact information torncredit card and bank account numbers.

A Form Filler is a free tool for filling out Web forms. What makes this toolrndifferent from the others is the way that it works. It scans web pages forrnpredefined text and then populates the corresponding field per yourrninstructions.
