Dashlane 4 is the latest version of the popular password manager for desktop and mobile devices. The new version features a re-worked and redesigned interface, improved Password Changer site support and more.

Existing users can update the password manager directly, or download the latest version instead from the official website if they prefer that method.

Changes made to the interface of the Windows version of Dashlane become apparent right on start after log in.

The left menu sidebar has been reworked and organized in a different way. From there it is possible to access all core features of the application directly.

You will notice new colors, a couple of new entries under Wallet and Contacts when compared to Dashlane 3.

The redesigned views for passwords, notes, personal information, IDs and receipts are another notable change in Dashlane 4.

While they look similar to the previous view used by the application, options provided in these views are now consistent.

This means that you can change between list and grid views, and use the same sorting options in all of the available views.

While you may switch between two different views, there is no option to list entries in a space saving list view that does away with large whitespace areas and images used to identify different services.

Templates have been added to the program's notes section that enable you to fill out specific types of information quickly by selecting one of the eight available templates.

There is still an option to create blank notes which means that the original functionality is not lost. Templates, like server info, Wifi password or software license can be useful as they help with the organization of notes in the password manager.

While it is not possible to add custom templates to Dashlane at this point in time, you may add information to templates as you fill them out.

The company's Password Changer, a near automated way of changing passwords with a single-click, has been improved in the update as well. More than 300 new sites and services have been added to it.

While it may not be able to change all account passwords, as it depends on whether sites and services are supported, it can speed up the changing of passwords significantly.

This is helpful if you are required to change all passwords, for instance after a successful hacking attempt or leak.

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between domains and files for instance.

    @Ashwin–Thankful you delighted my comment; who knows how many “gamers” would have disagreed!

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.
