People & organizations switch to Dashlane for better privacy, security, & support

Dashlane Password Manager protects your data 24/7 and gives you the ultimate privacy, all in one easy-to-use solution. Here’s how Dashlane’s security, features, and support simplify your life online—plus how to make the switch from your current password manager.

Best-in-class security

AES-256 encryption for all your data:

We use AES-256 encryption—the strongest encryption available—to encrypt all your data, not just your passwords. Short for Advanced Encryption Standard, it was the first publicly accessible and open cipher approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) to protect information at a “Top Secret” level. It’s now widely accepted as the strongest encryption there is—and used by governments, militaries, banks, and other organizations across the world to protect sensitive data.

Zero-knowledge architecture:

The architecture principle that supports our security is called a zero-knowledge system. It’s a powerful security principle that means the only one who can access your passwords and personal data is you—not even Dashlane can see them. Your passwords and other data are encrypted locally on your devices and can only be unlocked with your Dashlane Master Password, which Dashlane doesn’t store or transmit. 

Zero-trust approach:

As part of our zero-knowledge system, we give you the best protection by never trusting any server, code, or person with access to user data. We created new technology to enhance our security posture, and we have the patents to prove it.

Helpful personal & business features

Dark Web Monitoring:

Dark Web Monitoring scans 20 billion records on the dark web and alerts you instantly when your personal information is detected and therefore compromised. Then, we provide simple steps to help you fix the problem and protect yourself.

Security alerts:

Receive an alert if a login you’ve stored has been affected by a data breach.

2-factor authentication (2FA):

Get an extra layer of security beyond your username and password with 2FA, which requires a second authentication method, such as a fingerprint or one-time code, to access your accounts.

Single sign-on (SSO):

With Dashlane Business, admins can enable SSO to streamline the process of logging into Dashlane. Dashlane Business users can log in once to access multiple apps or platforms.

A virtual private network (VPN):

With most Dashlane plans, it’s easy to disguise your IP address for private, more secure browsing on public or unsecured WiFi.
