Highlights

Dashlane and Keeper are password management solutions that help companies ensure that their employees are using secure, non-compromised passwords. Both solutions are most popular with small businesses due to their low price point and quick setup for individuals and smaller teams. However, Dashlane and Keeper also offer enterprise-level features and have a significant user base among mid-sized and large companies.

Features

Both Dashlane and Keeper provide basic password management features such as password generation and storage, but they distinguish themselves from each other with standout features.

Dashlane gives users a single-screen password overview and offers individual suggestions for changing weak passwords. Dashlane also includes dark web monitoring tools that scrape the internet for compromised passwords and alert users and administrators about potential breaches. Recent updates have improved existing security and added new security options. Dashlane has also focused on quality-of-life features, such as iOS voice control and compatibility with device-wide dark mode settings.

Keeper is known for its powerful administration tools that help companies with many users manage their data quickly and easily. Keeper’s customizable UI is also popular with its reviewers. The software includes an encrypted chat feature, allowing users to send messages securely from within the app. Recent updates have added ease-of-use tools administrators, allowing them to automate administrative tasks with Azure functions. Keeper has also added a highly-requested “stay logged in” feature that allows users to maintain their Keeper session for a specified amount of time before logging out, even through device restarts.

Limitations

Although Dashlane and Keeper are fully-featured password management solutions, they each have unique limitations to consider before implementing one or the other.

Dashlane can suffer from a weaker administrative experience when compared to Keeper. Businesses with many potential users should prepare to spend more time and resources on administration. Dashlane also doesn’t allow as much UI customization as Keeper, which may be a non-issue for some users and a dealbreaker for others. Dashlane doesn’t include an encrypted chat feature, which means you’ll need to rely on a separate app for secure communications.

Keeper technically offers all of the features Dashlane does (and more), but its basic packages are actually more limited. Functionality like two-factor authentication, dark web monitoring solution, and encrypted chat must be purchased as add-ons to the basic package, which can make the solution more expensive as a whole. Keeper also lacks a permanently free option, making it a harder sell for users or businesses with limited budgets that only need basic password management functionality.

Pricing

Dashlane offers a free version that includes basic password management features but is limited to single devices and personal accounts. Dashlane’s Team plan costs $5.00 per user per month and includes two-factor authentication, dark web monitoring, and secure password sharing. Dashlane’s Business plan is $8.00 per user per month and adds SSO functionality to streamline the user experience.

Keeper offers two pricing tiers. The Business package costs $3.75 per user per month and includes password vaults and basic two-factor authentication. The Enterprise package costs $5.00 per user per month and includes access to the developer API for custom integrations and advanced two-factor authentication features. Keeper also offers a free trial, allowing potential customers to test the platform for a limited time before purchasing.

Which is Right For You?

Dashlane is an ideal password management solution for smaller businesses that may not need the complete feature set offered by Dashlane and Keeper in their paid packages. These businesses can benefit from Dashlane’s free option. Dashlane’s included dark web scanning feature also makes it an attractive option for companies with highly sensitive data.

Keeper, on the other hand, is better suited for businesses with many employees in need of password management. Keeper’s powerful administrative tools make it easy to manage many users quickly and easily. Keeper’s encrypted chat can also be useful for companies that need to discuss sensitive information, especially if they don’t already have a secure internal messaging solution.

Dashlane

Well Suited:
  1. Organization Management: Dashlane has the ability to setup groups of people who can get access to items.
  2. Password Generation: This software makes good passwords that are secure.
  3. Low Tech-Literacy: For those in your organization that are not great at managing passwords, Dashlane makes it relatively easy.
Poorly Suited:
  1. Customization: Dashlane is not good at being able to control the way your passwords work or are generated.
  2. Browser Integration: Dashlane takes over so many field that it makes using a browser too difficult.
  3. Searching: When searching, it limits to certain fields and returns too many results, while excluding secure notes etc.

Keeper

It is great for the management of passwords across organizational departments or specific cross-functional teams. The sharing feature is well suited to this. It may get harder to administer effectively (i.e., feel like you are in control) when there are many, many groups. Also, if there are groups or departments with high staff turnover, the administration efforts may get more difficult, and the chances that someone may have access to something they shouldn't increases.

Pros

Dashlane

  • Dashlane does a great job of detecting the password creation process on new websites and prompting users to store the data on the app. This saves a lot of time and eliminates the need to remember to save passwords manually.
  • Dashlane syncs well across devices. That password you created using your laptop is immediately available on your smartphone app without the need for double entry.
  • The Dashlane application provides a variety of data save types beyond just passwords. You are able to save account information, payment methods, and personal data in a categorized way.

Keeper

  • Easy to use - you can easily access it anywhere and anytime you want (it has mobile apps, web and desktop versions)
  • High level of security - 2-step authentication with your phone number
  • Simple to save and get passwords and login information. Keeper fills it in for you. It may create complex passwords for you
  • Syncs across all devices

Cons

Dashlane

  • Admin capabilities - Admins cannot reset passwords or 2SV tokens for any users, so they are left to contact Dashlane support. Without adequate management, Dashlane is tough to support internally effectively.
  • Reporting - Dashlane does not provide reports for when users export passwords, fail logins or do anything else to potentially compromise their accounts. The reporting right now simply shows when users are created and added/removed from sharing Groups, but even then, the reporting is broken.
  • Chrome - Chromebook users cannot take advantage of Dashlane to any real degree. They cannot set up 2SV tokens or keys, nor are they given the same features (Security Dashboard, Sharing Centre, etc.) so the experience is hampered, which adversely affects adoption.

Keeper

  • I find that Keeper could use some work with their desktop interface, a sleeker and friendlier user interface would definitely benefit them.
  • Keeper doesn’t have a Security Dashboard, which makes it more complicated to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your passwords.
  • The automatic web form filling is somewhat limited at the time, but im sure they will improve it soon.

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!

It's just easy to use, plain and simple. It has the complexity and user-interface that gives you confidence in its build but the ease-of-use that keep things from getting too complicated. A huge plus when you have to onboard new members of the team or summer interns when you need them to step in and make orders on your behalf.

We've had no issues with Dashlane. I can't speak to their customer service because I have not personally needed to contact them. I guess that speaks about their product if we've not had any issues to reach out about. Great for supporting data/information on multiple platforms that are shared among team members.

Because it is so good. It always works, has not crashed even in 3 years; I have a lot of data in it (never any problems).

Alternatives Considered

Dashlane

Dashlane was the best looking of them, we selected it because it went better with our communication style. 1Password was the second on the list, but we liked Dashlane applications more as well. It is really well design and polished, without compromising ease of use or speed.

Keeper

I have used the Apple cloud, but if you forget your password into that, once again, you’re at the mercy of calling customer service. With Keeper, you can use the thumbprint option to log on, and there’s any of your needed passwords. It’s fast and simple, and you don’t have to wait online to unlock the app you’ve locked yourself out of.

Return on Investment

Dashlane

  • Greater level of security regarding passwords for the company, definitely a huge bonus
  • Can be frustrating if you're just trying to quickly log into something and it hasn't stored the correct password or doesn't load for some reason
  • Can be a painful setup process if you have to manually remove stored passwords from Chrome/other browsers
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Keeper

  • The spreadsheets and printed papers being passed around the office with passwords on them have gone! This is a huge security hole plugged.
  • Users actively use the software which says something - it is easy to use and intuitive. When software is not intuitive, it tends to not get used.
  • It gives IT control over who does what with passwords, and while difficult to quantify it is certainly a dramatically positive impact on the organization.
