Remembering passwords can be extremely tedious. For most of us, we’d like to use a simple password that we can easily remember, but that cannot be figured out by others for all of our personal accounts, websites, logins, and the like. Recently, there have been substantial improvements to web browser password keeping applications. You may be familiar with some, such as Google Keep, Roboform, and the like.
Dashlane is one of these password management applications. However, instead of simply remembering a user’s passwords, Dashlane actually creates unique passwords for each of your websites. As they state on their website, “The only way to protect your identity and online accounts is to use unique passwords everywhere.” So how do they do this? The application allows you to import old passwords you use for websites, but will also create new ones for you if you so desire. To keep you even more safe, Dashlane will send security alerts to your phone or email whenever they suspect suspicious activity on your account.
A point that the company really drives home is that having one strong password that you use for everything decreases the strength in a huge way. With the update that was just released, Dashlane is now available for Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Linux, and the updates will also improve performance on Windows, Mac, Android, as well as iPhone and iPad. Dashlane now recognizes and is compatible with Face ID as well, and boasts the recognition of 11 different languages.
Some other changes you can expect to see with the update include a new logo, changed app icons, the new password changer, and compatibility with two-step authentication requirements. The company stated that this new update strives to better match their core values of simplicity, universality, and privacy.
