Breakdown of core features
Dashlane keeps track of passwords for users and automatically fills in those passwords and form fields to speed up online purchases. It utilizes an autofill engine to analyze the content and identify the different types of fields on the web pages users visit. The engine allows Dashlane to offer the most relevant information for autofill and contextual help when users create an online account or change a password.
The Password Health feature lets users assess and improve the security of all passwords, particularly for their banking or email accounts. The system presents a Password Health Score that gives an overall sense of how secure the user’s accounts are. Users can filter passwords by All, Compromised, Reused, Weak, and Excluded and see the count for each.
Dark web monitoring
Dashlane’s Dark Web Monitoring scans the web for any compromised personal information. After alerting users, they can take action to secure accounts after a breach. Moreover, the software lets users monitor up to five email addresses. For each email address, Dashlane runs an initial scan that turns up all currently findable instances of personal information related to that address.
With Secure Notes, employees can store private keys to software, WiFi passwords, and other important documents that need to be stored securely but accessed conveniently. Secure Notes are accessible only to the user and the people they choose to share them with. Dashlane has a File Storage that uses secure architecture to protect passwords and Secure Notes to encrypt and keep sensitive documents.
