1Password

Literally every human being in every single situation can use 1Password. It's well suited just for your average person who has too many passwords to manage mentally - name me one (non Ted Kaczynski type) who doesn't experience this issue daily. It's also well suited for teams as I mentioned in my previous comment in terms of collaboration.

Dashlane

If you have many applications or accounts with multiple passwords to keep track of, this is a great password manager that is clean, versatile on many devices, and great for a team environment. Even if you are an individual with too many passwords, it's still great. I think Premium/Professional Dashlane is needed only for a team, though

Pros

  • Integrates with every browser I use seamlessly. It works flawlessly in Safari, Firefox, and Chrome. It can also sync between computers easily using dropbox or other similar applications
  • It is lightweight and does not have a huge memory footprint
  • It is extremely responsive to password / log in inputs in ways that other, free applications like LastPass or OnePass absolutely are not
  • Dashlane securely synchronizes sensitive data across all of my computing devices. This feature alone is valuable.
  • It has good tools too, like the password generator that lets me set how long and complex of a password I want to create, and then gives me the option to save it right then and there.
  • Dashlane's ability to automatically log me in, or to pre-fill forms is why I bought it. It hasn't let me down. It has saved me a lot of time.

Cons

  • The price is relatively exorbitant for your average user. I confess that I am using it based on a free license I got from working at Apple several years back; even loving this software as much as I do, $50 for a single license is a steep ask, especially in today's world of free applications
  • The interface has not been updated in quite a while. Not that it is bad, per se, and is very utilitarian, but a small facelift would be nice
  • Dashlane touts its ability to automatically change and update passwords. In my experience, this is one of its few weak areas. It is only able to automatically do so on a small percentage of the sites I visit.
  • Dashlane accounts are tied to one email address. You cannot update your email address, and that is a significant shortcoming.
  • It can be annoying to have to type in a password to access Dashlane. Most of the time I can use a fingerprint on my phone or tablet, but not yet on computers.

I can't imagine not having it. Dashlane is an integral part of all my computing, across PCs and Apple products. What Dashlane does should be built into every operating system!

Alternatives Considered

There are a number of alternatives. In particular, I believe LastPass is its closest competitor, then you also have the built in browser password savers. Those are not, to me, a viable alternative, however, because they are not easy to port between machines (mobile or desktop). LastPass is a good product, especially for free, but it just feels ineffably *janky* compared to 1Password. Like, it will interrupt you and ask to save your log in when you're just filling out a basic, non-login form. It feels like a javascript applet compared to a native application like 1Password.
KeePass is well suited to group sharing of passwords and such on a network accessible storage site (a "share" in Windows lingo), but is inadequate for auto form filling or logins. Dashlane uses a flat organization of entries - as in alphabetical order for websites -- and KeePass can get as complicatedly nested as you wish to mimic your organizations methods or structures.

Return on Investment

  • Hugely positive.
  • Nothing negative to say about Dashlane at all. Great product.
  • Very good pricing for an individual user or a larger enterprise environment.
