Is Dashlane free version worth signing up for?  It sounds cool but realistically, if I lose the master password, what good is it?


I'm old school and just have my pw stored somewhere.  Not sure if I want another software loaded on my computer.  Anyone have experience with it?

Do you have more than one device? That is, besides a computer, do you have a cell phone? Or besids a cell phone, do you have a computer? Be aware that Dashlane Free is a gimmick to get you to sign up for Dashlane Pemium - you get 30 days of Dashlane Premium with your Dashlane Free subscription, but after that, if you want access to your passwords on a second device, you will have to upgrade to Dashlane Premium.


Having said that, Dashllane Premium is worth the price.  For myself, I prefer LastPass.  I signed up for Dashlane only to understand it so that I could answer questions from my sister, who has never really bothered to learn to use the LastPass subscription hat I gave her.


I have yet to figure out how to edit or delete a password entry that I have made in Dashlane.  Instead, I have kept adding new, slightly different password versions for the same online account(s).  This task is much easier in LastPass.


But yes, I think it is definitely a good idea to get a passwod manager, and Dashlane seems to be well reviewed.
