I've been using LastPass for a bit more over a year now. It's really easy to use and it integrates itself very well in every web browsers I use/used: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The password generator feature is also easy of access since you can generate unique passwords for every accounts you create. Since I have LastPass Premium, I also have the app on my Android phone and it works very well with all the apps I have (on top of working in the Chrome browser), so I would go with it. If we are talking free version, LastPass offers more than Dashlane.

LastPass isn't that expansive compared to DashLane, and also they offer a few promotions per year bringing the price down, or you can get free 1 year coupons sometimes.

No problem Smurfon, you're welcome :) By the way, some users will also suggest you offline password managers which in theory are safer (because Dashlane and LastPass save your data on their servers, if they get breached, all your information gets compromised). The most popular offline one is KeePass. It offers a range of plugins and even an Android app.

http://keepass.info/

It's also still actively maintained. You can even put it on a USB Flash Drive and use it from there.

Thank you

my worry is that If i get a virus or malware or a backdoor or what ever they are on my pc is that all that info is acsessable to the person, but via online they are alot more secure encripted and and you can change the passwords if they get breached. not sure if im right with all of that am i?

You're right, but I think KeePass offers you the option to encrypt your database and password protect it. So even if a malware managed to steal it, the hacker couldn't do anything without your password for that database.

haha this is so hard to choose lastpass or KeePass, can you get KeePass on your mobile with the same account? because then that is probaly a yes for me XD so i can encript my data and then no one can do sod all with it, allso one thing to ask with KeePass can the malware gets hold of it can he delete it so i wil forever not know what my passwords are

To use KeePass on your mobile, you don't use an "account", you have to transfer the database file that contains your data on your phone and point the KeePass app at it. They also have a Google Chrome extension I think. Basically, KeePass doesn't work via accounts, but database files.

I'm pretty sure that the database can be deleted like any other files, unless the ACL are modified. And the database is encrypted, yes. I think that quietman and Animal uses KeePass, so if they see this thread they'll be able to answer your questions.
