It is time for another update on our RoboForm Password Management solution. RoboForm has made some excellent changes in the past few months and now have a solution called RoboForm Everywhere. RoboForm used to be a USB key based system. Now, it is purely software that runs on your PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android device and more. It securely synchronizes to online storage and can be accessed securely from all of these devices for $20/year. It is an excellent solution for managing your passwords and saving you a lot of time as you do your work. If you prefer to have this set up and working for you, give us a call at (913) 944-4980!
We have mentioned this device in the past and we are bringing it up again because we have had so many of our clients that love it and say they can’t live without it. Our goal at Blue Gurus is to educate you, save you time and help you grow your business. Think about how many times each month you type in a username and password on a web site to do your job. Now think about how many times you couldn’t remember the password and had to go through a “Password Reminder” process just to get to the point where you could actually log in to do your work. What would it be worth to you not to have this problem ever again? Our clients usually say “a lot”.
RoboForm pays attention to the web sites you are going to and asks if you want to remember passwords whenever it sees a new username and password entered. It stores these in a secure, encrypted location on your device and also sends the encrypted file to the servers at RoboForm. That way, all of your other devices can get the password information as well! This comes in handy when you stored a password at the office but need access to the password when you do a little extra work from home that evening. There are also things called SafeNotes that cover anything besides a username and password combo. For example, if you need serial numbers, account numbers, your rep’s name, PIN numbers and more to access a site, you can put everything in a SafeNote for easier access. (I have found this helpful with 401K web sites)

RoboForm is easy to learn and the feedback we get is always something like, “that is amazing. I can’t believe you guys are the first people to tell us how to solve the problem of managing our passwords. This is going to save us a lot of time.”
We hope you will do this on your own if you have the time or call us if you don’t. Stop keeping your passwords on a piece of paper in a file cabinet that you can’t get to from home. You shouldn’t be wasting time trying to remember passwords and typing in your user name on web sites many times every day!
We've worked with The Blue Gurus for many years, and they've been a great partner in every respect.
Honest, upbeat, knowledgeable, responsive.
They've supported us in four key areas: LinkedIn training, blogging, and web site development--and they have excelled in all three. Their core expertise is in LinkedIn and blogging, but I've found them to have such an excellent network of contacts that often they are able to bring in reliable support in other areas as well. So I consider The Blue Gurus a window into an array of excellent resources for small businesses.
