Dashlane, an essential password manager

How many times have you wanted to check an account and you forgot your password? Or your mobile password, or any data required to complete an online order, or to login to any website or application.

We are using more websites, apps and software than ever. Are you sure you can remember everything? Or that using that "123456" password are you secured?

Why do I need a password manager?

A good and secure password must contain capital letters, numbers, special characters, a minimum of characters... The list is long! Isn't it?

Remembering all those data and passwords are humanly impossible, and using insecure passwords or repeating the same one among many platforms is not recommended.

So we've found the perfect solution to all this. An application that we didn't know or have heard about, but that has proved to be essential for us: Dashlane.

What is Dashlane?

Dashlane is an application that allows you to securely store passwords and notes. You can also store your personal data (such as your full name or the address where you live) so that you can fill out online forms automatically.

How does it work?

It's very simple. After downloading the app, you'll be asked to set a master password (the only password you'll ever need to remember!).

When you log in to Dashlane on your computer or smartphone, you'll be asked for this password so Dashlane can remain active in the background. Ready to assist you when a password is required!

For example, when you try to log in to Facebook, Dashlane will detect it and fill in the password field itself, without you having to do anything. And so will do with any other website or app in which you are registered.

And, if you go directly to the application of Dashlane and log in to your account (with the master password we mentioned before) you'll be able to check all your passwords and to sort them by categories. Easiest, impossible.

How much does it cost?

Dashlane has a free and paid plan. In the free plan, you can only use it on your computer. So when you need a password while using your smartphone, you'll need to have your computer near.

The premium version synchronizes all your devices. So, wherever you go, you will always have your passwords and most importantly: they'll be kept safely. Another advantage of the Premium plan is that it regularly backs up your data. The premium version costs about 30-40 $ a year. Which is a really good price!
