I seek free software for Windows 10 OS, with the following features for IE and Chrome and Firefox:

  1. automatically completing forms and fields;

  2. saving passwords.

I can't use Roboform anymore, as it's expensive. What alternatives are there?

  • As password stores an form-filler are usually separate applications, you might wish to ask separate questions to keep things clear ;) – Izzy Apr 19 '18 at 5:51

for security reasons i would strongly advise against web-based services to store your secret passwords!
instead i would highly recommend a local installed open source software and just sync your encrypted passwords across your devices via any sync-service...


as specific software i can recommend KeePassXC (a fork of KeePassX) with several good features:

  • it is free as in beer and speech
  • available cross-platform for Windows, MacOS and Linux
  • auto-type (including TOTP) on all supported platforms
  • import-function
  • password- & passphrase-generator (with strength-meter)
  • for the database-files it uses the KDBX-format from KeePass

With its countless ports (even for Android, iOS, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, etc.) you are platform independent and don't have to hand over your passwords to a cloud service.

  • Good advice concerning passwords (I'd never ever store those with some "cloud service"). But what about "form filling"? To my knowledge, KeePass (in whichever flavor) doesn't feature that. – Izzy Apr 16 '18 at 21:52
  • @Izzy well... you can a kind of work around it with Custom Entries for Autotype and setup two or more window-titles (with corresponding sequences) for autotype. - for sure you have to set this up for every form, but i'm not sure if this is also necessary with other form-fillers. – DJCrashdummy Apr 18 '18 at 20:03
  • OK, so OP might better ask a separate question for that. +1 here meanwhile ;) – Izzy Apr 19 '18 at 5:50

I know you might be hesitant to sync your passwords and form fills with a cloud service, but if it helps you feel better if the service is open-source and constantly being updated, I would check out Bitwarden. It's free unless you want a little storage space for important files along with its other capabilities, and if you decide you want that, it's only $10/year. You can learn more at http://bitwarden.com/. Also, LastPass (http://lastpass.com/) has a really good free plan. That's what I use since Bitwarden didn't have some of the cool features LastPass has.

Enpass is free for all desktop OS though its mobile (Android/iOS) versions are freemium.
