LastPass and Dashlane are two of the best password managers you can choose. Each can help you securely store dozens of passwords and log you into sites with the click of a button. But which is the best password manager?
While both these Password managers are excellent, with a host of decent features, Dashlane just pips LastPass by our reckoning. Dashlane is the more expensive of the two, so if your decision is driven mainly by your wallet, you might want to consider LastPass instead.
LastPass or Dashlane – Which to Choose?
Let’s state for the record – either of these password managers is a smarter choice than trying to remember all your own passwords. But, we feel Dashlane is superior overall:
- Dashlane makes it easier to change multiple passwords at once
- Dashlane Premium (paid-for) has far better support than LastPass)
- There’s a great password-warning function in Dashlane if it feels your existing passwords are weak
- LastPass does have a slightly easier to use web browser extension
- In terms of price, LastPass is the cheaper of the two
There are many reasons to choose a password manager – whether it’s keeping track of multiple passwords across various sites, generating more robust logins, or unifying login details for all your devices. There are plenty of brands out there, but with something as vital as your online security, it’s worth choosing the best.
Either LastPass or Dashlane will free up your time trying to remember if your password for Facebook started with a capital letter or a number. Plus, you can say goodbye to the nagging worry that you really shouldn’t be re-using that same login on 10 different sites. That’s got to be worth a few bucks a month.
