RoboForm2Go is the portable version of the RoboForm software and lets you securely store all your passwords and login details on a USB key for use on any PC, anywhere, anytime.

It can be used to generate passwords, store form information for later auto-completion and create identities for more general form filling. It can also be used as a portable bookmarks manager.

By default it works with Internet Explorer, adding a toolbar for quick access to all its functions. A free plug-in is available that makes it compatible with Mozilla Firefox.

Visit a site with a login box and, when you log in, RoboForm2Go will prompt you to save these details. Next time you want to visit this site, use the RoboForm2Go toolbar to select the relevant login and RoboForm2Go will load the web site and auto-complete the login procedure.

All data is encrypted using DES and if you set a master password the likelihood of anybody accessing your details is fairly remote.

When using RoboForm2Go on a public PC all evidence of RoboForm2Go is removed for complete security.

It isn't the easiest software to get to grips with, but once you've grasped the basics the rest comes easy.
