    I just had to drop by and tell you about a new program I just installed a few months ago and I have never found a program so useful and efficient in my life as this is. It's incredible the ease of use, fast. There is more than meets the eye with this program. It's the way it's designed.

    I have it on my phone and my computer and everything is always in sync. Nothing is stored on your computer. Your id is authenticated by each device you add.

    No worry about anything being hijacked. It can be set to auto log you in if you would like. I set a Master Password in order to login my bank and email etc.

    I never ever write about software, very rarely but this is gem that I don't know how I got a long without for so long. I was pulling my hair out trying to remember all my logins for every site. I wasted more time hitting "forgot password or username" than china has rice. It was ridiculous!

    It's a game changer thats for sure. give it a try. I put the free version on and instantly purchased the premium. I didn't have to pay extra for my phone.

    I wonder if it offers any benefits compared to Lastpass. In any case, if you're using it with more than one device it's considerably more expensive than Lastpass Premium (39.99 $ vs. 12 $ per year).

    Faircot I don't know what thats supposed to mean.

    This far exceeds any password manager I have ever used. Lastpass doesn't compare. If your going to rationalize over price without trying it, well then....

    Well, how exactly? You're only saying that it's better but not why.

    You're wrong. I have it on my PC and tablet and it works fine. My comment refers to the over-exuberant and selling style of your initial post. AND there's a decent thread here on Wilders about password managers:

    I just noticed that it's not available for Linux and obviously not a pure browser extension. Thus, it must contain a platform-specific binary. Hence, no alternative for me.

    From the info I've read about Dashlane, they seem to "get it". But IMO, so does LastPass. So until I have a reason to pay $27.99 more per year, I don't see myself changing.

    (I will say that now that LogMeIn has purchased LastPass, I fully expect the price of LastPass to go up. How much, I have no clue. But any commercial company is in business to make money. And $12 per year is ridiculously cheap. I just don't see that staying there for long. If and when LastPass goes up, Dashlane may become more tempting to me.)

    Dashlane would be good in my opinion, and a viable LastPass alternative, but for one thing. It would automatically log me into a site, even when I set it to not do so. Which is a royal pain in the rear on sites where you have multiple login's e.g. Gmail. That 'feature' rendered in unusable, for me anyway. Lastpass gives you options, I need to be the master of which login to use, and if I want to log in at all.

    They do have this for mobile devices. I have it on my phone. It works great.

    If you don't want it logging you in automatically then you change the settings, very simple. The price out weighs the ease of use, the efficiency. It's tied to your email address so you can put it on whatever you need it on.

    All I'm saying if your were to try it you would see for yourself. It does have a free version.

    Not very simple, I did change the settings, it reverts back to auto-login. There's a 'fix' to make that a setting for all imported passwords, but it doesn't work, or is buggy.

    Apart from that, yeah, it's brilliant.

    Something isn't right because I don't have everything set to auto login. I freaked out when I first installed this because of that so I went hunting in the settings. Oh wait a minute, I just thought of something. I know why you didn't find it.

    Here, look to the left and where you see "Passwords" in the column. Then you will see all the little squares stored of info to the right. See the three little lines on the right side, right click on this and go to "Enable Auto-Login" and choose yes or no and see what happens.

    It's just my opinion! There's nothing wrong with being excited about a program that works so well.

    It's super efficient, easy to use and it's so much more than just a manager for passwords. It generates super strong passwords for you. It encrypts secure notes that you can share with other people. It stores all your credit card, SS# or anything else you want to put in there.

    The design is set up to where they don't store anything on their servers. They are working on a business version from what I can see. The one price for the year is for as many devices as you want to put it on because you are identified by your email address. You can put it on all your tablets, desktop computers, mobile phones. Everything will always be in sync on all devices when added.

    Sorry summerheat, I was replying to your previous comment. I quoted the wrong one.

    dashlane seems a money printing machine for their investores - i wont count on that too long

    from my view its one of those upcoming business making money with an "overwelming" security promising - everyone wants a piece of the cake.

    There's nothing wrong with being enthusiastic about software, however this is a technical forum and people here expect claims of greatness to be based in facts. You say that LastPass doesn't compare, but you have not given any examples of how Dashlane is so much better, and frankly I don't think you can. As far as I can tell the two have essentially the same features so the question remains why pay 3X more for a subscription to Dashlane? In fact "sync across multiple devices", which I consider one of the more important features, is available in the free version of LastPass but not in the free version of Dashlane. If Dashlane wants to compete with LastPass they will have to match the cost.

    Instead of some people brow beating me, why don't you try it. People want to nit pick and find everything they can wrong with something. Everyone has an opinion!!

    The issue here is that your original post reads like an advertisement, too obviously like one...

    You are not the only one reading it as an advertisement, same impression. On top this password manager was already discussed in-depth in another thread. Why creating another one? As already said it is a good password manager but it comes at a price. Personally I would like to see some security track records... you have plenty of dedicated security researcher trying to crack lastpass and exposing weaknesses. Lastpass has been also very active into patching and further armouring its services. What about Dashlane? Any independent auditing? Any serious security review about it? I have not seen one yet.

    I was surprised to not hear that in this thread, it was my first thought
    I wouldn't give my passwords to LastPass, which is reputable, let alone this one
