CNET Editors' review
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.
