Dashlane Password Manager having Two-Factor Authentication


It is a fact that there's no way we can keep up separate and secure passwords for all our logins spread all over the Internet. Writing them all down on post-it notes is not a very good solution. 
Password Manager is the solution in front of us and there are certain key features we have to check before going for a Password Manager software. Check for encryption standards, authentication, secure password generation and smart autofill (a must while using on the small screen of a phone).



Dashlane, is one of the password managers who is having all the above features.  Now its took the wraps off of a major update, including two-factor authentication via Google Authenticator, a completely overhauled interface for all apps, and a wizard to help new users boost their security.  The free version of Dashlane works really well. Even the free desktop version (Windows and Mac OS) has plenty of features and configurable plug-ins for Chrome, Firefox and Safari. The app and the desktop program do everything you'd want or need from a password utility, all for free.  Premium version of Dashlane is also there for $20 a year and you can have unlimited devices synchronized through the service (the free version limits you to one mobile device). Give Dashlane a try and I'll sure that you find it suits for your needs.  Download: Dashlane Password Manager (Free).
