FREE: 1 Year Dashlane Premium (New Users Only) - Was $40 USD Per Year - Via Appsumo


I'm a LastPass user myself, so no practical experience with Dashlane.

This offer is provided via AppSumo and appears to be for new customers only.

The below description is copied directly from AppSumo, but has been edited to make it shorter and easier to read:

Dashlane is a killer password manager that automatically inputs your password for you on any site! On any device you're on!

Why does that matter? Well, for starters, you save hours of your life (never click "forgot my password" again).
Second, security. Each password can be unique and complex because Dashlane is doing all of the remembering for you.

Now if you wanted to try Dashlane, you could absolutely free, but if you want Premium features like sync to unlimited devices (like mobile iOS and Android), that will cost you $40/year.

Normally, access to Dashlane Premium and all of the advanced features would cost you $40. Instead, in this AppSumo exclusive promotion, any new users can get 12 months of Dashlane Premium 100% free! (no credit card required)"

  • Good deal, but lastpass is better imo

    • How so? I've never used lastpass but have been thinking of switching over.

      • more well researched encryption to lastpass's servers, and its cheaper per year.

        • The encryption thing is definitely a plus. I guess price doesn't matter for me because I've been grandfathered into Dashlane's sync for free.

      • Well for starters, it's not $40 per year!
        That's the standout to me. I'm into my third year with Lastpass Premium and have probably only now spent $40 Australian with them.

          $12 a year is super cheap for it imo, a buck a month for not having to remember passwords.

      • Offline storage FTW :D

  • umm doesnt every web browser include a password mamanger?
    generally with all my passwords with chrome they are, so this app seems useless.
    this will probably start a arguement that chrome isnt a secure password manager………..

      Third party password managers are more secure, yes, and will sync password across all browsers/operating systems (it can autofill passwords into apps on your phone, for instance). It also has handy features like generating and saving long, secure passwords for you, reprompting for your master password before you log into certain websites (say your PayPal account), two-factor authentication for new logins etc. I use LastPass over Dashlane, though.

      If someone stole your laptop with your Chrome saved passwords on it they could use it to conduct identity theft, buy things if you save bank/PayPal passwords. Windows passwords are trivial to break so that doesn't save you.

      • Just need to steal one or two files from Chrome's (or most browsers) data store directory. No need for the whole laptop =)

      • Windows passwords are trivial to break so that doesn't save you

        Maybe to bypass login screen.

        Since XP* you can have files and keystores encrypted by a key that is protected by the login password.

        Chrome uses the DPAPI on Windows and Keychain on Mac.


        I don't use Chrome for saving passwords, but don't throw around fud.

        *Happy to be proven that this was in 2000 or one of the many service packs of NT 4

        • Plenty of websites/services which will crack your Windows password for you. I personally did it back in high school when locked out of the computer by my parents!

        • @batiudrami:
          LANMAN hashes were only used for <=14 chars. I could use rainbow tables to do the same.

          LANMAN has been disabled by default since Vista.

          Try it, set your Windows 7 password to Idunno100$ and see if it gets cracked as fast as you say it does.

          *nix and OS X uses different schemes but produce similar protection.

          Resetting/Removing a password will not give access to the encrypted keystore which is what all those instant password "crackers" do.

          Chrome does (and I've seen different wording so I'm unsure) backup your passwords to your account by default with:

          And this is where I'm unsure, some documents say a key based off your account password. (Which is reasonably ok for the average person). Some documents say with a key stored in your account which would be stupid.

          I do notice if on a Chromebook if you change your password on the web, it'll ask you for your password to start syncing again, leading me to believe the former.

          I don't use Chrome's password manager.

  • Whats wrong with saving your info / passwords in a draft email in hotmail account.
    They are all stored as coded passwords but this makes it easy for me, only need to remember one tough password.

    Dashlane is great. The big selling point is ease of use. It's got a much better interface than any of the others in my opinion.

    You can try it for free. Subscriptions add the ability to sync between devices.
