Let me introduce you to my new friend –DASHLANE. I think I have gotten at least 25% more brain space available by switching to Dashlane. We all have way too many passwords to remember. We have financial passwords for banking accounts and investments. We have passwords for work, in some cases up to a dozen for various systems. We have passwords for websites that we use. We have password for online shopping accounts. The list is seemingly endless and it also seems to be growing. Every time I turn around it seems some place else wants me to create an account.
Do you really want to see me go ballistic? Ask me what your password is! “Well, you helped me change it the last time” is not a valid answer. I have my own passwords to remember, do you really think I’m going to be able to remember yours too?
Enter Dashlane. Download the app on your Mac or Windows PC and it reads all of the stored passwords from your browsers. Next, it analyzes your passwords and gives a security grade for each letting you know what passwords you might want to consider changing.
If you want to get fancy, you can go for the premium subscription (starts at $39/yr) and it will sync across your devices so you won’t ever be left wondering what your password is even with just your phone or tablet.
If all this weren’t enough, there’s a cool area for you to store information you want kept securely. I think this is a great place to put banking information, how to access your safety deposit box, girlfriends phone numbers (just kidding, honey). Additionally, it safely stores your credit card information as well and that makes online shopping a breeze!
If you absolutely hate keeping tracking of passwords, Dashlane is going to change your life! You can download it by visiting dashlane.com and downloading the app for your OS and be sure to try it on your mobile devices also. It’s a free 30 day trial so you can see how it syncs to your mobiles but I think I’m stuck on Dashlane and am just going to bite the bullet for 3 years at 99$.
