Dashlane is a fairly popular password management app, but now the company behind it is looking to branch out in other methods of security. The new Dashlane 6 expands beyond simple password management with the Identity Dashboard, a place to monitor your digital identity for things like theft, fraud, and other risks.
The Identity Dashboard is your one-stop shop for all things related to your online security. It has a password health section, offering you suggestions to improve your login info, 1GB of encrypted file storage, credit monitoring, and other account options.
There are now three price tiers in Dashlane 6:
Free, which is your basic password management on a single device
Premium, which adds unlimited devices, dark web monitoring, and VPN access - $4.99/month billed annually ($60/year)
Premium Plus, with credit monitoring, identity restoration, support, and $1 million in identity theft insurance - $9.99/month billed annually ($120/year)
There's a free trial of Premium Plus if you want to check it out before committing to the cost. You can also just try out Dashlane if you haven't yet by getting it from the widget below.
Today, Dashlane announces the release of Dashlane 6, the leading password manager app's answer to the digital identity crisis—the disorganized, unsecure trail of passwords, payments, personal information, emails, files, and more that people leave behind online. Dashlane 6 tackles people's increasing need to manage and secure their digital identities with the first all-in-one solution for online risk prevention, identity monitoring, and identity restoration.
Dashlane 6 introduces a revolutionary Identity Dashboard, which provides a complete picture of a person's online security and clear actionable steps to improve it. The Identity Dashboard integrates dynamic new features like Dark Web Monitoring, credit score monitoring, identity restoration support, and Identity Theft Insurance to put people in complete control of their digital identities. "Managing digital identity has become too complex for almost everyone," says Emmanuel Schalit, CEO of Dashlane. "Massive breaches and data abuses—like the ones at Facebook, Equifax, and Exactis—affect us all, and while protecting accounts with unique and complex passwords is a critical step, it is no longer enough. People must be able to easily manage and monitor all aspects of their digital footprint, whether it's monitoring credit reports for fraudulent activity or personal information for sale on the dark web. That's why we created Dashlane 6—to solve that very problem.
