    I have a basic Roboform I dlded from god only knows where, it's not the PRO.

    When i click on the taskbar's green robot, logins I can see all my passwords. How can i make this dropdown show ******* instead like with usual passwords?

    Master password isnt the solution, it just closes and opens the entire framework. I'm looking for something to protect me from whenever someone may pick up my pc when i leave for two minutes, as usually happens when its in a living room.

    I don't think what i'm looking for is possible, with roboform, and i find it kinda ludricous that its so.
    What i mean is something that isnt password protecting all these ids with a master password, something that even when i insert the master password will show the passwords that matter encrypted to me but still available and functioning for my logins.
    Something that isnt just logging off and on, or waiting for the master password to disappear from cache.
    The robofom im staring at allow meto use a master pasword but once i do im staring at the site, name, url username email and its password, for each and ever account i have, im looking for something that will show me all this except the passwords

    I don't think that can be done. I'm a long time user of Robform and haven't seen what you're talking about. Once you log in your master PW, as you mentioned, all info is there to see.

    It was purposely designed that way and for good reason:

    1. You can print out all of your information including passwords. This is a very good idea just in case your system crashes and you need to reinstall your operating system.

    2. If it only showed "*****" as the PW then you would be out of luck unless you remember what it is.

    I use a different password for all of my online accounts and I do have a lot. But like I said, I keep a hard copy of everything.

    In other words, I like the way the software was designed for the reasons I mentioned above..

    Edit: I forgot to mention that if you're worried about someone viewing your info when you walk away, then just simply lock your screen. Either use a screen saver or you can create a login password for your operating system.

    thanks buddy for those suggestions
    i do use the screensaver options im thinking of lockdowns etc
    but just a quibble, in my opinion they should have allowed the coating passwords option in, which one could activate or deactivate with, say, the master password
    for example, when i watch a movie and the screensaver comes up arghh! :)

    Theres another one called lastpass which looks good. It might have what your after.
    http://lastpass.com/

    Its free too. But the only thing is that they host the info on their servers. Dont know how I feel about that
