Having strong and unique passwords is important. But you can only remember so many of them, which is where password managers come in.

Keeping your passwords secure is only one part of the equation. You also need a good way to access them on all of your devices, which is why many people prefer using cloud services like LastPass, as opposed to open source password managers like KeePass.

Dashlane is one of those cloud services. With 9 million users, Dashlane's paid tier has all the important features of a good password management service, including strong password generation, sync for multiple devices, and secure account backups. It also has some unique features such as automatic password changing and security alerts for potentially compromised websites.

Previously, Dashlane was only available through its apps, which are available for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. With version 5, however, Dashlane gained a new web application, which works with all major web browsers, including Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and even Opera. And finally, with the browser extension reworked to no longer require the desktop application, Dashlane is now available for Linux and Chromebooks.

Other features in this update include a redesign of everything from the logo to the website, support for more languages (bringing the total to 11 – English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Dutch and Swedish), support for two-factor authentication, to add an extra layer of security to the password manager.

Dashlane 5 is available right now on the official website.
