FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Siber Systems, Inc., maker of RoboForm, the world's most popular password manager, today announced that the company is offering its groundbreaking RoboForm Everywhere, normally priced at $19.95 per year, at no charge to anyone with a valid college or university email address. A top-rated password management solution, RoboForm Everywhere enables users to login to websites automatically on both computers and mobile devices and offers automatic syncing and multifactor authentication to strengthen security on any device.
RoboForm Everywhere simplifies password management: Users only have to remember one Master Password, and RoboForm takes care of everything else by automatically remembering and entering user passwords for every registered site. RoboForm Everywhere works across PCs, Macs and virtually all mobile devices. Siber System's industry-leading encryption technology securely stores all RoboForm data with the Master Password – which only the user knows.
To protect against hacking, security experts recommend using strong passwords that contain upper and lowercase letters as well as numbers and symbols, using a different password for each registered site and changing passwords every 30 to 60 days. But using the recommended security practices can mean that users have to remember a long list of ever-changing passwords, and storing a file that lists current passwords poses its own risks. This password management challenge is further complicated by the proliferation of devices as users access the same sites via computers, tablets and smartphones.
"Hacking and data breaches are a growing threat worldwide," said Bill Carey, Siber Systems VP of Marketing. "We believe that good password management practices should start early and know that it can be a challenge to create multiple strong passwords for use on every site, especially when users access sites on different devices. RoboForm Everywhere makes it easy, and now students, professors and faculty with a valid college or university email address can get RoboForm Everywhere absolutely free."
With RoboForm Everywhere, higher education users can go mobile with RoboForm's ad-free apps and use the password management system across multiple devices – with unlimited syncing across all devices included for free. RoboForm Everywhere offers multifactor authentication to add an extra layer of security.
