Securely Store Your Passwords And Login To Accounts With Dashlane
With the increase in usage of web services and online accounts, it is becoming increasingly difficult for users to remember their passwords and to find a mechanism for managing multiple account I.D.s. Moreover, it can be quite tedious to continuously login to multiple accounts by entering the login credentials manually (e.g. to login to Google Drive to upload a PowerPoint file). This is why some password management tools and add-ons are frequently used by some users. These include LastPass, Keypass, 1Password and others. If for some reason you are looking for an alternative password management tool, then you should try Dashlane. It is a cross-platform application which has been designed to securely store all your browser passwords and to enable you to quickly login to your accounts.
To use Dashlane, simply go to the developer’s website and select a version for your device (e.g. Windows). During the installation process you will be asked to create an account and import your browser passwords. In case you do not wish to import passwords from a browser, simply uncheck it. Make sure that the password you keep for your Dashlane account is easy to understand as you will not be able to recover your data if you forget your password (which is one of the downsides of using this application).
Once your account has been created you can enter additional information such as your name, address, login credentials for certain accounts (e.g bank account), credit/debit card information, etc.
You can use your Dashlane account to fill out forms and passwords automatically and also keep your information stored to a personal account from where you can recall important information. Since Dashlane supports a wide range of platforms, you can benefit from its functionality from a number of devices. For an overview of the functionality of Dashlane, see the video given below.
Dashlane has both a free and paid version. The Premium version of Dashlane costs $4.99 a month or $39.99 per year (with a 33% discount). The paid version provides complete access to all Dashlane features including use of mobile apps. Dashlane works on the following platforms:
