SHARING AMERICA'S TECH NEWS FROM THE VALLEY TO THE ALLEY
Windows/Mac: Dashlane, an all-in-one password, form, and online purchase and checkout manager, has been in private beta for months now, and when we last discussed it, it was already a great option for keeping your passwords secure and online purchases organizes and easily searchable, not to mention giving you a great form manager that could fill out almost any web form with a single click. Now Dashlane is out of beta and open to all comers, and has some big improvements to show off.
If you tried the beta before and found the app a little buggy or incompatible with your particular browser, you’ll be happy to learn that the folks behind the app have vastly improved browser compatibility, specifically for Safari, Chrome, and Firefox 12 users, and have improved memory performance in the Dashlane app so it should be snappier and faster than ever before. The app also now auto-updates in the background, much like Chrome, so you don’t ever have to worry you have the most recent version with all of the bugfixes and security updates available.
Feature-wise, Dashlane now allows you to have multiple identities, so you can keep different form data (like names, birthdates, addresses, and so on) for different people you manage purchases for, whether they’re friends or family, and it’s much easier to edit and update any credentials and passwords you’ve changed on other sites inside of Dashlane, and audit them for security and strength. Plus, the tool now supports complex forms on over 60 new sites, like NewEgg, Dropbox, the Apple Store, and more.
If you tried Dashlane during the beta and wanted to see how it matured over time, it’s worth taking another look now. Mobile apps for iOS and Android are on the way soon, and the devs are still open to feedback. Dashlane is still completely free, and available for OS X and Windows systems.
