How secure is my data?

Dashlane takes security very seriously. Password security guides our product, our technology choices, and our business decisions every day. As a result, Dashlane is the easiest way to keep all of your passwords secure and your accounts protected.

Dashlane's unique set of security measures

  • Dashlane requires a strong Master Password, including the use of capital letters and numbers. We encourage our users to make their Master Password as complex as they can.
  • Dashlane does not store your Master Password anywhere on our servers, and it is never transmitted over the internet. That means the key to your castle cannot be taken from you and your scrambled data stored on our servers is useless to hackers.
  • Dashlane does not collect or store a password hint. Often these hints are weak gateways to actual passwords and we do not use them for that reason.
  • Dashlane does not store “authentication hashes” to enable new devices. You must enter a token each time you log into a new device, which ensures that your data does not fall into the wrong hands.

Steps that Dashlane takes to safeguard our infrastructure

  • Dashlane is proudly hosted on Amazon AWS, one of the most respected and secure cloud hosting solutions on the market.
  • All of our products are audited regularly and by different security auditors.
  • Our servers are regularly investigated for any trace of suspicious activity and our infrastructure is regularly scanned for any vulnerability.

As always, there are things you can do to take control of your data security and Dashlane can help!

You’ve already got the tool to create strong passwords for each account, so make sure to use Dashlane to generate strong, random, and unique passwords for each of your accounts.

Regularly visit your Identity Dashboard and use the information provided there to keep your data secure. The dashboard keeps you abreast of changes in your Password Health score, and is where you can always find security alerts affecting you. Deal with your compromised or weak passwords in the Password Health feature, and be sure to take action whenever you are notified of a breach.

Improve your online security by using the Two-Factor Authentication and U2F features in Dashlane. You can enable them in your app settings.

Feel free to visit the Security section of our Help Center for more information on protecting your accounts.
