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.

"Almost but not quite."

April 15, 2015  |  By phi16

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.0.7.74559

Pros

The app does everything it claims to do except on some very important banking sites.

Cons

Doesn't work on some important banking sites. This was revealed to me by Dashlane's technical support after suggesting I Uninstall, reinstall and restart the app and browser to solve the problem. Ugh. I am still trying to figure out how to sync Dashlane's app on my phone with Dashlane on my computer. It doesn't help to have those bizarre computer generated passwords on the computer if that then precludes you from having the same passwords inaccessible on your phone.

Summary

The concept is great and the implementation is great. If it worked on all websites and was easy to sync between phone and computer it would be a great app. I give it four stars.

"Free version does not entice me to buy the premium vers"

April 14, 2015  |  By caveshopper

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.0.7.74559

Pros

Stores passwords, fills in forms automatically, makes logging in easy

Cons

Glitchy - often have to close the program and reopen to edit details of various passwords, closing the program doesn't necessarily close it, will still fill in passwords, and the last straw was today...telling me my master password is incorrect when I know it isn't and didn't change it. No way to recover password, you have to reset the account. Understandable to keep things secure, but still aggravating.

Summary

I've been using Dashlane for several months and it's OK. It does store passwords and fill in forms for you to make logging in to various things easy. However, I often had to close the program and reopen it in order to see details about individual passwords or edit them because clicking on the gear icon did absolutely nothing. Today I tried to log in to DL and it kept telling me the password was incorrect. I KNOW it is not, and I didn't change it. Since there's no way to recover the master password, my options are to reset and start all over or just try another program. I think I'll do that, this free version of Dashlane has definitely not enticed me to purchase the premium version.

"Best Password manager out here"

March 24, 2015

Pros

Dashlane auto login that makes login so much faster and easier. I log to everything without thinking, it makes life online simple. I am not afraid of creating new account anymore

Cons

-Too many hidden features you need to learn from the manual
-you need to go premium if you want to effectively use the password changer feature.

Summary

100% happy with my Dashlane

"never trust a business without a phone number"

February 28, 2015  |  By tommyat

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.0.7.74559

Pros

the idea is great

Cons

the execution of the dateline idea is poor. this might not be a problem if, for instance, Dashlane was simply an app one could avoid. since it interacts with every other app, it can create huge problems. if there were a help number, i'd give them the benefit of the doubt. but there isn't. I paid nearly $100 for the privilege of using dashlane. now i have to figure out how to get out of it.

Summary

avoid until unwitting customers can call a help line.

"Not a good download."

January 31, 2015  |  By docplaster

 |  Version: Dashlane 3.0.7.74559

Pros

Great ides, but terrible execution of the product.

Cons

Disabled IE-11 on my Win 7 PC. Constant popups. Did not always retain my password for some sites. Through a process of elimination, I uninstalled Dashlane and IE-11 operated as it should have.

Summary

Enough negatives to not recommend this download.
