Changes for the Free Dashlane Version

October 27, 2022

Everybody should be using a password manager to manage all of our logon credentials. Many password managers allow you to securely store more than just a user ID and password. LastPass has long been a user favorite. Review Geek reported that Dashlane has changed the features for its free service. Previously, the free Dashlane version allowed 5 users to share up to 50 passwords. “The company now allows users unlimited password management and sharing, along with a “secure notes” feature, without charging a penny. Other useful features free accounts have access to include: form and payment autofill, a 2FA system, and a “password health score” that will flag your lack of creativity and reluctance to use special characters.”

Like other password managers, you can pay to get more features. The recommendation still is to go with a paid version of a password manager, but the free Dashlane version may be a good option to get you started. No matter which route you choose, make sure you are using a unique password for every service you access.
