Editors' Review

Dashlane secures your online passwords with a single master password and stores your data locally with AES-256 encryption; plus it's one of the most secure and capable form-fillers available. You can sync data to a variety of devices, too, including (make that especially) smartphones. Dashlane works with most browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and IE). Recent updates include a password generator.

Dashlane's installation process involves three steps: Connect to your browsers, set up your account and profile, and secure and organize your data. A Custom installation option let us choose which browsers to use in case we didn't want to use them all (though your default browser should support it). To finish the installation, you must create and confirm a strong password: Do not forget this password since it's not stored anywhere but your system, and you'll need it to access encrypted data. After that, the Personal Data Assistant walked us through the steps of entering our address, contacts, IDs, payment information, and other data that we're constantly entering online; but if that's not easy enough, embedded video tutorials are a click away. Under Click to Pay, we could add credit card data, including issuing bank, security code, and color options. We could also click "Skip" to skip any step and come back to it later, if necessary. Dashlane's Security Dashboard organized all our Internet passwords and rated them for security (too many of ours showed very unsafe!), but color-coded ratings helped us sort out any issues. We clicked "Add Your First Purchase" under Internet Shopping to activate a feature that records an itemized receipt for everything we buy online when using Dashlane--how cool is that?

Activating Dashlane's extension in Chrome gave us instant access to our secure passwords, forms, and financial data from Chrome's toolbar or the Windows system tray. Though Dashlane does much more than most auto-complete tools, it proved surprisingly easy to use in everyday surfing. We've tried many similar tools, but none that does all that Dashlane does, let alone for free.

"Dashlane is a great password manager! I think."

March 21, 2016

2016-03-21 22:48:32

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.2.5.84801

Pros

The Pros are that you can store all of your passwords and you know they will all be safe and secure if you remember to log out every time you use it. Also you can store alot more than just passwords like: notes, phone numbers, receipts after you shop online + more and more.

Cons

Basically the only thing that I found bad was that you had to have the premium version to set up a back up!! :(

Summary

so overall I think that Dashlane is a great password manager and a good safe place where you can keep your passwords + loads loads more!!

"Dashlane performance problems"

February 23, 2016  |  By Logansrun2000

2016-02-23 05:00:03  |  By Logansrun2000

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.2.5.84801

Pros

Strong feature set and it works with most websites. Being able to share passwords via the Sharing feature is nice.

Cons

Under Windows 7 and Windows 10, you might experience significant performance problems with your browser while Dashlane is enabled. A reboot helps but the performance issue can quickly return. My merely disabling the Dashlane extension in your browser, the pauses / freezes / stutters will go away.

Summary

I've been a fan of Dashlane for a few years. I use it on 4 different computers (Windows 7 and Windows 10), and on several mobile devices. But the performance hit on my computers has gotten worse and worse over the last 6 months. I use all 3 browsers (Chrome, Firefox and IE) in my technical work. Chrome is my preferred browser. The freeze ups and slow downs are bad. By merely un-checking Dashlane in my extension list in Chrome (to disable it), my browsing speed will go back to normal and any music I might be playing no longer stutters when I click to new web pages. Mouse movements stop stuttering once Dashlane's extension is disabled.

I'm really frustrated. I now regularly toggle whether Dashlane is enabled/disabled in my browser so that my computer performance is normal.

I've tried disabling my Norton anti-virus / firewall for short periods of time to determine if there's a conflict there but it doesn't make a difference.

"Doesn't work with multiple page logins"

February 18, 2016  |  By cra777

2016-02-18 17:50:08  |  By cra777

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.2.5.84801

Pros

Easy to use and set up for sites where it works.

Cons

Many sites, specifically banking and credit card sites, use a multiple page login process. Dashlane acknowledges that they may not handle these sites properly and that was my experience. In order to make these work with Dashlane, you need to manually enter the login to get to the password page, where Dashlane will properly enter the password. Well, having to remember the login defeats the purpose of a password manager. This isn't a solvable problem with the software as written today, maybe a "smarter" version in the future will work. Until then, some other solution will be needed.

"Go with something else!"

December 21, 2015  |  By Roopster123

2015-12-21 11:36:13  |  By Roopster123

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.2.5.84801

Pros

At first, it did do a good job of importing many of my current PW/ID credentials.
simple interface

Cons

I paid for the premium version so that I could sync among different devices. But it didn't take long before it would just flat out fail... not autofill anything, not attempt a login, nothing. And it seems to do this frequently. Once in a while a "disable" then "re-enable" the extension will fix it, but usually it requires multiple steps (disable, close browser, reboot machine, re-enable, etc) to get it working again. Sometimes I even have to reinstall whole %*$# thing. The whole point of this app was to make my life and business simpler, but it's making it more difficult. And the customer service is non-existent, even for premium customers! It's email communication only, and always expect at least a full day before you get a less-than-helpful response. So getting to a real fix will take a few emails, which = at least a few days. Try running a business with that lack of help. Also, when I expressed my concerns to a rep, and begged for better support, nothing would be offered to me. I re

"Their organization is too disorganized to trust them"

November 23, 2015  |  By rhballew

2015-11-23 09:32:32  |  By rhballew

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.2.5.84801

Pros

Have none. I set my user name and password and now have an "account". When I tried to set up my system they started "requiring" personal information and I backed WAY off. For a pseudo security program, as a policy they should not ask for personal information that's not germane to the operation of the program.

Cons

Have tried repeatedly via their convoluted system to have my account deleted. Three attempts have failed with the message "An error occured."(SIC) If they can't get that simple function right I won't trust them with any personal information.

Summary

Not impressed at all.

"To say that the price is FREE is misleading!!"

August 20, 2015  |  By pjsagebiel

2015-08-20 10:36:38  |  By pjsagebiel

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.2.5.84801

Pros

The program works fine once you figure out everything and would be a good thing to have with all the hacking and identity theft that is going on.

Cons

My problem is that the program IS NOT free as stated on CNET's review page. It may be a free download with a 30-day free trial, but after that you have to pay to use it.

"New Version Is GREAT!!!"

June 11, 2015  |  By sbd8828

2015-06-11 19:55:58  |  By sbd8828

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.2.5.84801

Pros

Its really easy to set up. I added all my info and set up my master password. I use Firefox as my main browser and the program has worked really well for me. My PC is a Dell 660 Win 8.1 64 bit. I do lots of things online that require me to fill in lots of the same info over and over. This program has been a great time saver. It also found all my user names and e-mail log ins (some I'd even forgot about) The free program works really well, its worth giving it a try!

Cons

I wish you could set up some one line info inserts. Other than that, nothing to complain about!

Summary

This program has really come a long way since its start. Its free version works great. I didn't know how much a program like this would really help. Now I'd NEVER go without this kind of software. Give it a try, I think you'll be happy with it.

"Glitchy program with terrible support services."

May 10, 2015  |  By sguari

2015-05-10 14:11:04  |  By sguari

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.0.7.74559

Pros

None. Couldn't log in and couldn't get response from cust service until the next day...by email. No phone access. No online chat. Nothing. And I had purchased premium service!

Cons

Customer support is terrible.

Summary

Don't download the free version. Don't buy the premium version. Don't use Dashlane. I'm back to my excel spreadsheets and satisfied after the experience I had trying to use Dashlane.
