Dashlane Password Manager Adds VPN, Dark Web Monitoring

Dashlane VPN

Think Dashlane is just a password manager? Think again.

The company on Thursday released Dashlane 6, which goes beyond helping you keep track of your passwords. The service features a new Identity Dashboard, which serves as a central hub where you can get an “overview of your password health,” view any active security alerts, and set up premium features.

Those premium features include a virtual private network and dark web monitoring. The VPN encrypts your online activity when you’re connected to unsecured Wi-Fi networks to stop snoops from stealing your personal information. The latter feature will monitor the dark web for your personal information and send you an alert if it finds anything, so you can take action to protect your account.

Dashlane has three tiers: the free version lets you manage up to 50 passwords on a single device; the $4.99 monthly Premium plan offers unlimited password storage across all your devices plus dark web monitoring, the VPN, and 1GB of storage for sensitive files you want encrypted.

With this update, the company is also introducing a new $9.99 monthly Premium Plus plan in the US, which includes everything in the Premium plan plus credit monitoring and identity restoration services, and up to $1 million of identity theft insurance. Keep in mind that both Premium and Premium Plus are billed annually, so you’ll pay for 12 months upfront.
