Developer Dashlane, Inc
Dashlane was co-founded in 2011 by former Business Objects CEO Bernard Liautaud, Jean Guillou, Guillaume Maron, and Alexis Fogel. The company is headquartered in New York and has received $30 million in venture funding from FirstMark Capital, Rho Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Bernard Liautaud. Dashlane protects passwords by storing them locally using AES-256 encryption, and users can only access their account information by using a single master password that is never recorded or transmitted. The app has a fully featured digital wallet that can aggregate credit cards, bank accounts, IDs and other personal information, as well as automatically fill that information for users during online experiences like check-out. Other security features offered within Dashlane include automatic password generation, a security dashboard and security breach alerts.
Setting up Dashlane is a simple job if it is your first time use of a Password Manager application. Normally your passwords are stored in the Mac key-chain which has great integration with Safari. Other third party browsers however are not supported by Mac’s key-chain. A true Password Manager application stores your paswords in a vault protected with a choosen master-password by the user. ONLY YOU know the master password, it is not stored anywhere else in a cloud or on servers of Dashlane. So don’t forget it and keep it in a safe place if you don’t trust your brain.The complete setup is guided with clear and easy to understand sheets explaining every step in the proces. Those who already used other third party applications like 1Password or LastPass have the ability to import their stored passwords straight into Dashlane, 1Password users need to export their stored passwords in a .pif file which can be imported in Dashlane. It all works flawless and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist in order to make it all work as it should.
