How to Back Up RoboForm Passwords
By Chris Hoffman
RoboForm is a proprietary password manager and form filler that works in a variety of Web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. RoboForm stores your passwords and other data in files on your hard drive. You can back up these files from within RoboForm so you won't lose them if your computer or hard drive fails. RoboForm can restore the back ups on another computer, so this process is also effective for transferring RoboForm your data to a new computer.
Right-click the "RoboForm" icon in the notification area at the bottom-right corner of the taskbar and click "Options."
Click "User Data" in the sidebar at the left side of the Options window.
Click the "Backup" button under "Backup and Restore."
Select a folder you want to back up the passwords to in the Browse For Folder dialog and click "OK." If you want to back up your passwords to a removable device such as a USB flash drive, plug in the flash drive and select it in the Browse For Folder dialog.
Click "OK" to confirm the backup.
Click "OK" after the process is complete.
- You can restore back ups by clicking the "Restore" button located to the right of the "Backup" button in the Options dialog and selecting the .rfo-format backup file.
