The 5 Best Apps for Your Small Business
Dashlane: Password Manager
In technical terms, Dashlane is a cross-platform password manager that’s subscription-based. Pretty much what this means is that Dashlane helps users create safe and secure passwords and then takes those passwords and stores them away in a “password vault.” Don’t worry; you can easily retrieve all of these passwords using what they refer to as a “master password,” which grants you access to your database of usernames and passwords. In this vault, you can keep:
- Personal Information
- Secure Notes
While it’s possible to access and edit the password manager database within the app itself, the software typically works in the background while you’re browsing the internet. For example, every time you log into a webpage, instead of typing in your email and trying to remember the password, the Dashlane app pops up. It reveals any logins within the database that are available to use. Additionally, depending on your preferences, you can even have Dashlane automatically log you into known websites. If you’ve never used a password manager before, we highly suggest you start, and Dashlane is at the top of the list and something our team can personally vouch for.
