Let’s be honest: Your password habits are miserable. You use birth years in usernames and pet names in passwords. You’ve got passcodes scribbled on Post-It notes. You’ve even been known to reuse a username and password between a website or two. Or three. Or four.
If that sounds even remotely like you, then the all new Dashlane iOS app for iPhone, iPad, and the Apple Watch might be the best news you’ve heard all day. The online- and mobile-authentication specialist has redesigned its solution to improve navigability and make it easier for users to manage passwords on multiple devices.

“The app combines the same convenience and functionality of the previous version,” wrote Malaika Nicholas, Dashlane community manager, on the company blog this week, “only now it’s reorganized to make all of your passwords and other important information easier to find and use anytime, anywhere.”
Dashlane’s password-management service helps remove friction from online authentication and checkout while maintaining security. New features include a redesigned menu, global search, a “Recent” screen to make it easier to find most frequently used items, a “Tools” screen to access tools such as the Password Changer and Generator, and simplified app security settings. A digital wallet as well as a password manager, Dashlane is available for free and also as a premium service, Dashlane Premium, that includes syncing with an unlimited number of devices for $39.99 a year.
Download the redesigned app from the Apple App Store. Dashlane 4.5 requires iOS 9.0 or later.
Founded in 2009 and headquartered in New York City, Dashlane demoed its technology at FinovateEurope 2013. The company has raised more than $52 million in funding, with its most recent—a $22.5 million round—led by TransUnion. Dashlane also includes Bessemer Venture Partners, FirstMark Capital, and Rho Ventures among its investors.
Recent headlines for Dashlane include the March hiring of new Chief Financial Officer David Lapter; adding support for YubiKey authentication in February; and providing Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, and Japanese language support in January. Emmanuel Schalit is CEO.
