    "Good software but needs improvement."

    June 1, 2014  |   By Reshiram

    Version: Dashlane 2.4.0

    Pros

    Easy to use UI and Secure data encrytion for password. data export available for Free version.

    Cons

    Dashlane plugin for IE won't work on first installation on Windows 8.1 and user needs manually re-install plugins completely and enable by right clicking toolbar and check "Dashlane Toolbar", no menu support for IE.

    Wrong autofill actions on some websites.

    Wrong texture display for "Compromised Passwords" on default windows size.

    "Great program, but use caution"

    February 19, 2014  |   By JackNanSpam

    Version: Dashlane 1.7.5

    Pros

    This is a terrific program. I have been able to organize about 200 logins and I love the way I can automatically generate secure logins and sync them with my other two computers for a very reasonable annual fee. If I don't want to pay, I can send a secure email containing the login and then enter that into Dashline or another program on the other computer. Piece of cake. The Security Dashboard is excellent - informing me of compromised or repeated or weak logins and assisting me with more secure updates. However, see below.

    Cons

    However be careful when changing passwords. The websites usually do this easily in conjunction with Dashline, but sometimes the change doesn't work as expected and you are up the creek if you have not copied your original password. So, when you change a password, always write down the original so you can go back to it if the change doesn't "take."

    "Is easier & faster than others I've tried.
    '"

    February 4, 2014  |   By ra549

    Version: Dashlane 1.7.5

    Pros

    It saves me so much time I started entering sweeps and in less than 2 months I have already won a 2nd place prize!

    Cons

    If you don't purchase the paid version they constantly bug you to upgrade. I could understand a one time payment of $20-30 but not every year. For a paid version I'd want a couple more security options so there are a few sites I won't use it.

    Summary

    No more writing down pages of passwords not to mention filling out forms in seconds vs. minutes, it's a "No Brain-er" as long as it's free

    "Good for mac, but terrible for ios"

    January 13, 2014  |   By Dwight01

    Version: Dashlane 1.7.5

    Pros

    I love it on my Mac, and on my laptop PC. I saw none of the issues others have mentioned vis a vis slowdowns, "taking control of my computer", etc. It works great for its intended task, automating the log-in process and pre-filling forms and payments. I haven't used the strong password generator yet - I may do that.

    Cons

    The giant con, that has not been mentioned enough, is how poorly it works on iPhone and iPad. It may not be the fault of the designers - I don't really care who'se fault it is - but it only works on a browser in its own app. Therefore, you can't use your carefully organized and arranged icons (hah!); rather you have to open the Dashlane app and START TO TYPE THE URL of the site you want to log into! Dashlane will recognize the typing and usually suggest the proper site before you finish typing it, but really! Typing a URL? Same incredibly cumbersome process for payments, and adding to your Dashlane.
    To summarize, this is a gigantic negative and lowers my rating, which otherwise would be a 5, all the way down to a 2.

    Summary

    If you have no ios devices, Dashlane gets a 5 rating. if you have ios devices, consider carefully the trouble you'll have to go through to use it. Its a work CREATOR, not a work SAVER, on ios devices.

    "Cannot recommend this app"

    December 29, 2013  |   By cldaris

    Version: Dashlane 1.7.5

    Pros

    None evident

    Cons

    Don't download this app. It is extremely intrusive. To add insult to injury, it is very very difficult to uninstall. I'm still struggling with it, and have not for example been able to delete my account in their server, where some of my data is stored.

    Summary

    Not recommended

    "Does not work with Windows 8 and Chrome Too many issues"

    November 9, 2013  |   By bruno05

    Version: Dashlane 1.3.0.25234

    Pros

    Pros
    Nice looking interface.

    Cons

    Does not work with Windows 8 and google chrome. Freezes Firefox completely (my CPU usage was only 7%). Not comfortable with the fact that they have my information even though I disabled sync function. I have already removed it.

    "Best user interface!"

    November 6, 2013  |   By jackmusick

    Version: Dashlane 1.7.5

    Pros

    - Great interface
    - Desktop application
    - Less is more (when it comes to additional features)

    Cons

    - No good way to share things with people -- a business version would be great.
    - Mobile apps could use work - functional, but not very consistent with the UI logic in the desktop apps.

    Summary

    My favorite password manager so far. It's really easy to use and I appreciate that when managing passwords.

    "Beware of this program"

    August 26, 2013  |   By NCSympa

    Version: Dashlane 1.7.5

    Pros

    Robust program

    Cons

    Takes control of computer and I could not find a way to regain control of processes in preferences. I control my computer, not unknown 3rd party programs. Looking at other comments, some say program caused browser slowdowns. I experienced that with my browser and did not realize this program caused it. I'll see now if it has gone away since I uninstalled the program.

    Summary

    Be wary of this product. I don't care for programs that tell me what I can do with my computer without control or explanation.

    "Loaded with Junk"

    July 18, 2013  |   By Grover Strong

    Version: Dashlane 1.7.5

    Pros

    This maybe a good program but see cons

    Cons

    There were other programs that were loaded with this program that were junk which changed your home page for IE, Chrome, and Firefox. When I saw all this, I just deleted everything.

    Summary

    Spend your money if you want password saving program.

    "Great product!"

    July 10, 2013  |   By LisainCT

    Version: Dashlane 1.7.5

    Pros

    User friendly, free version, secure

    Cons

    none so far

    Summary

    Very user friendly password manager. I've had no problems with it at all. I've recommended it to several people and they are happy with it as well. Much easier to use than other managers I've tried.
    Highly recommended.
