I gave my VA’s (Virtual Assistants) one of the best gifts last year! I could have sent chocolates or flowers – but those only last a few days (or minutes in the case of chocolates).
I sent them a tool they could actually use every day to make their work time easier and faster… and of course that benefits me in the long run. 🙂
The tool is called Robo Form. I’ve been using RoboForm for several years and I don’t know how I would function if it ever “quit” working. It’s the coolest little “fill in the blank” tool you will ever find… and it works like a charm.
I use it to save all my passwords and it also saves my work and home addresses and credit card information. It’s secure and you can set a special extra password to protect the entire data base in case someone steals your laptop.
It remembers my passwords, so that I do not have to write them on pieces of paper. Not only does it fill in the passwords for you, it can do the whole login thing: go to a site, fill forms, click the Login button. It also fills those ubiquitous web forms in one click.
I really like it and best of all, it is completely free. They do not show ads to you and they do not spy on you. RoboForm has received very positive reviews from publications such as The Wall St Journal, Financial Times and PC Magazine.
I need to log into dozens of blogs, membership sites, forums and email programs every day. I don’t save my logins or pin numbers for security reasons.
When I hit a page that requires a log-in – RoboForm pops up with a little window to ask me if I want to fill in the user name and password. I click yes and it’s all done. Boom… logged in.
There is a place to open up all your logins and personal data into a printable format. I keep a printed copy of all my login and banking information in a variety of secure locations.
If I ever have one of those dreaded days… and my computer crashes!!! Yikes… I have a “hard copy” to re-create the data base.
Of course – I can also save all the data to another portable thumb drive or external hard drive… and just reload. Pretty cool little features.
Then… let’s say I need to do some shopping online:
I have several favorite shopping sites that I am registered at. I can log- in quick – choose my items – fill in the credit card and address info in a matter of seconds (just a few clicks) and boom… I’m done.
Some of the shopping is for personal and some is for business… I have different addresses and credit cards for each. Robo Form keeps track of all of that for me… it’s click and fill like magic.
I am an affiliate marketer – how does RoboForm help me?
Every time you sign up for a new affiliate program – they want your Tax Id. For corporations this is a different ID than your Social Security number. I can’t remember that Tax Id number for anything… but Robo Form does.
What if I want to generate hard to remember passwords?
Robo Form does that as well… you can generate those number/letter combinations on the fly and then Robo Form will remember them when you need to log-in again.
RoboForm.com has a Free Version. The free version only holds a limited amount of passwords… which you will use up in a flash.
It’s the Pro Version that has unlimited features… and when you purchase the Pro Version of RoboForm… you can purchase extra licesnese for your VA’s at a discounted rate.
It’s a deal that your budget will love and is a Great Gift for your Virtual Assistant.
And… you won’t have to pay for shipping… just send them the link!
