Overall Satisfaction with Dashlane

I am an end user of Dashlane, and absolutely love it. It has unburdened me from the need to write down and secure long complex passwords, credit card information, and logging on to the majority of sites I visit. The frosting on the cake is its ability to securely synchronize my sensitive data across devices: PC, iMac, iPhone, and iPad.

  • 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.
  • 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 only answer this subjectively. It has saved me HUGE amounts of time with logging on and filling forms ... huge amounts of time.
  • The only negative I can come up with is the resistance from security people who are unfamiliar with it.
  • KeePass
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.
It is amazing at filling in online forms for me, for logging me into web sites, and keeping me aware of a weak or repeated password on my current list of over 100. It does not do well at updating credentials for most websites.

Using Dashlane

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!

  • Synchronizing secured information across multiple devices works very well and nearly invisibly.
  • Automatic web form fill-in rarely enters incomplete or inaccurate data.
  • Receipts can be kept for purchases made online when Dashlane is used to fill in the payment information.
  • A biometric fingerprint can be used on an iPhone, but not on an iPad. I'd be a bit happier if it worked n both.
  • Using the automatic password changer only works for a few websites, I know you can't get them all, but Dashlane should be able to hit a higher percentage.
Yes - It woks better on an iPhone than on an iPad. Other than that, it woks great across all my devices.
