Need to secure your sensitive data online with a password manager, a text file encrypter, and secure auto-filling functions while still being able to securely synchronize passwords across multiple devices? Dashlane for Mac doesn't disappoint in any aspect and is definitely worth a try.

Dashlane for Mac leaves a good impression from start to finish. The installation and setup process is a breeze and the program self-configured on the first launch. We appreciated the ability to drag and drop, and minimal interaction is required to input the data you want to protect. You can enter credit card details or your PayPal account credentials, and from there the app will automatically complete the required fields when you surf online and wish to pay. All the fields that Dashlane can help you with appear with a small icon, which when clicked lets you choose the credit card, e-mail address, or other information you wish to use. The interface is beautiful and easy to use; everything works seamlessly. As for the security part, the program uses industry-standard AES-256 strong symmetric encryption to store encrypted files locally, while following best practices for hashing, salting and IV generation that will prove efficient even against motivated attackers. As a bonus, you also have the ability to enter text notes that will be encrypted directly in the app.

Packed in a stylish package, convenient to use, and providing additional security, Dashlane for Mac proves to be a good solution for any user who would like their online shopping experience to be as automated and secure as possible.

    "Excellent program"

    June 05, 2014   |   By CathieQ

    Version: Dashlane 2.4.0

    Pros

    Nicely scrambled passwords

    Cons

    Premium was applied when the 'free' program was downloaded. Wonder what will happen, what will be subtracted when payment is requested after the 30 day trial I did not sign up for.

    Summary

    This assessment was requested too soon. Ask me again after the 30 day 'Premium' program quits and I have no knowledge of the scrambled passwords.

    "Easy to use, looks good."

    May 30, 2014   |   By MoonRunner--2008

    Version: Dashlane 2.4.0

    Pros

    Installs easily and automatically.

    Cons

    Imports old irrelevant passwords.

    Summary

    It probably works very well for new users when you have not changed any previous passwords. It installs very easily and imports your passwords.

    However, due to internet security I had changed many passwords numerous times and when I started Dashlane the first time it wanted to import 155 passwords from my browsers and most of them I had changed and were no longer relevant, the software lets you check every password at that time.

    Perhaps this would be ok but I was afraid it might screw up all the websites where I had changed my passwords recently and dumped the program immediately. Luckily the software uninstalls easily with the built in uninstaller.

    "okay when it works. but glitchie"

    May 25, 2014   |   By Rich Fisher

    Version: Dashlane 2.4.0

    Pros

    great system when it works. simple to update from my old to new passwords though I had to visit each web site and navigate to the change password page to update my passwords. Not sure but DashLane does not always get the password restrictions correctly

    Scan my computer/Safari or Firefox to see what sites I have passwords stored for or have used recently

    Cons

    Does not integrate with iPhone or iPad. Need to run everything through the DashLane app.

    Tedious to update passwords.
    Sometimes when I change passwords they don't seem to stick (DL does not seem to get restrictions correct).

    Summary

    Good start but limited to laptop/desktop. Does not integrate with IOS devices.
