Using a pass phrase consisting of several words will give better security. Try to add some numbers as well and feel free to miss-spell words. Just remember that the password/phrase must be entered exactly the same way every time you want to access your Roboform data.
Once you have entered your password, enter it again in the second box to confirm it and then click “Next”. The installation is now complete. Your default web browser should now open and display the following page:-
