Want to give it 6 stars
on July 23, 2013
I've been with this app from the beginning and it's undergone some major changes (all for the better). No more 'points' for opening up additional options in the free version and an entirely new user interface.
My favorite part about this app, is that Dashlane doesn't have access to my information. Yes, they keep the data, but it's encrypted even from them. Unless you have the master password, good luck trying to hack it.
Next is the fact that they synchronize data to every platform and device you use. This means that my wife and I keep the same (and automatically updated) list of passwords and secure notes by using the same account. No matter who adds or changes information, the other person is always using the most recent information.
There are other great features like automatic website login, and automatic entry of other (e.g. financial) information, and 90%+ of the time Dashlane is intuitive enough to match up the correct fields.
Complimenting the app are PC (download) and web based versions of the Dashlane service. At work, I use the web based via Chrome app - at home I have the full PC version. In the web based, you can only view (not edit). In the PC and Android app version, you have full control over all information. The only other difference is in this Android app: auto-entry must be performed within Dashlane's own web browser. On the PC version, Dashlane has plugins for most popular browsers.
The other item worth mentioning is the difference between free and paid. As far as I know, there is no separate paid version of this app, but there is a way to make payment through the app for premium features. Unless they've changed, the free version still allows you unlimited passwords and limited notes. So if you're only looking for strictly password management, I highly recommend this app to you and yours. Plus, you're on Amazon if you're reading this and can take it for a test drive anyway.
Hope this helps you decide.
