Rich DeMuro shows you how RoboForm can remember your info for pain-free filling of forms.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Oh there they are, Pirate versus Ninja batteries. I so have to get these. Thank you, thank geek, alright. Now to just fill out three pages of personal and credit card information. One, two, three. Done. Why you looking at me like that? Oh you're not still manually filling out every form are you? Hey there I'm Rich DeMuro with CNET.com and I'm here to enlighten you today with a quick tip about filling in online forms the easy way. Automatically with RoboForm. RoboForm is best known for managing and storing multiple passwords. But it's also a whiz at saving your commonly used information. Like your name, address, birth date and anything else you might need to fill out on an online form. So to start, click fill forms on the RoboForm tool bar and begin entering in your profile information. You can add your addresses, credit card information, even if you have multiple cards. Now if you often use a field that isn't there, like a frequent flyer number if you fly a lot, you can add up to three custom fields to a form. Just click on the custom tab in the forms screen. Now if you have the Pro version, you get more free fields. Okay, I know immediately what you're thinking. A program that saves password and bank account information? Can it be safe? Well the good news is you can set RoboForm to encrypt and password protect all of your data. Just make sure that the gold padlock on the auto fill toolbar is on. If it turns silver, that means it's unlocked. And also pick a master password that's really strong, but not so complex that you might forget it. Once you have RoboForm installed, the next time you want to buy that great gadget, all you have to do is hover over your user name and click fill forms. Everything will get filled out in seconds and your fingers, they will thank you. And one more thing. You can also save the contents of customized forms you'll repeatedly fill out like say your time sheet for example. First, fill in the form. I think I worked 87 hours this week. Then choose save forms. Give it a profile name, say time sheet. And the next time you need to fill it in with the exact same content, just click the profile in the toolbar. That's all there is to it, to this quick tip. It's really that easy. Now go fill something out. I'm Rich DeMuro with CNET.com. See you next time. ^M00:02:10 [ Music ]
