Dashlane Password Manager and Digital Wallet

You might imagine that over here at Nashville Geek there’s a lot of information we need to keep track of. We need to keep up with website login info, social media passwords, host ID’s, and many more for our many clients. As we have grown, we have found our original text-edit filing system just wasn’t handling our needs. Our system worked in keeping client info safe and relatively available, but we still spent a lot of valuable time running down passwords in order to log onto websites and social profiles. Likewise, the password keeper in our browsers just couldn’t keep up with the sheer volume of login/passwords we threw at it. We needed a better solution. By golly, we found it with Dashlane. Dashlane, in our estimation, is the most versatile and reliable password manager out there. Not only does it securely store your passwords it automatically logs you in so fast it’s like not having to log in at all. Most impressively, there is no limit to the number of passwords or multiple profiles it can store. Our client’s security is always uppermost in our minds, and with an Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) of 256 and no record of individual encryption keys stored, on the web or on a device, we can be confident that sensitive information is secure. Dashlane offers the choice of keeping all info local and stored on one device or you may share with multiple devices, fully encrypted of course. Dashlane feels confident enough to call their encryption a “hacker’s nightmare”. (For the super geek details on their security measures,  you may download their white paper here.) As with most apps, there is a free version and a premium version. The free version offers password management, auto-fill, digital wallet, security, and works on many platforms (PC, Mac, iOS and Android). The premium version offers secure account backup, syncing across all your devices, web access to passwords and priority tech support. At just 29.99 a year, the premium version gives a lot of bang for the buck. We still keep all of our info in a secure backup system, but for our fast and efficient day-to-day password management Dashlane keeps us sane. What password management system do you use? Let us know in the comments. When our year is up, we may just give it a try.
