Dashlane today announced the release of Dashlane 6, which the company describes as an "all-in-one solution for online risk prevention," beefing up the password manager's suite of features with a collection of online privacy and security additions.

The first new feature introduced is an "Identity Dashboard," which provides each user with a complete picture of their online security, as well as steps toward how they can improve it. The dashboard includes features like Dark Web Monitoring, credit score monitoring, identity restoration support, and Identity Theft Insurance so that users are "in complete control of their digital identities."

Of course, Dashlane still provides in-depth password management tools, and the new update includes an "enhanced" password health section with real-time analysis of how secure each password is. The company says that this helps users better understand which of their accounts are really secure and which could use a little more attention, and if they want to update their passwords Dashlane provides tools to easily randomize and strengthen each one.

"Managing digital identity has become too complex for almost everyone," says Emmanuel Schalit, CEO of Dashlane.

"Massive breaches and data abuses—like the ones at Facebook, Equifax, and Exactis—affect us all, and while protecting accounts with unique and complex passwords is a critical step, it is no longer enough. People must be able to easily manage and monitor all aspects of their digital footprint, whether it's monitoring credit reports for fraudulent activity or personal information for sale on the dark web. That's why we created Dashlane 6—to solve that very problem."

Dashlane 6 also has 1GB of storage across devices for Premium and Premium Plus users, secure sharing with friends and family members, and an included VPN for Wi-Fi protection. The VPN is available for Premium and Premium Plus users as well, and the company says it can be operated on an unlimited number of devices with unlimited data use.

Dashlane has three plan tiers: free, Premium at $4.99/month, and a new Premium Plus option at $9.99/month (both billed annually). Premium includes unlimited passwords (the free tier has only 50) on unlimited devices, Dark Web Monitoring, the secure VPN, and secure file storage. Premium Plus adds these features plus the new credit monitoring, identity restoration support, and Identity Theft Insurance coverage.

Those interested can download Dashlane 6 for macOS and iOS today.

Hi! I see you're talking about VPN and notice that you are paying for its services. I just like to share my experience with a VPN application which I currently use for a while now, it's called VPN Free, as the name itself it's completely free and works very well. I just had this thought that you could give it a try.
If it’s “free” and they are being paid somehow, and I personally wouldn’t trust it. It’s just like saying Facebook is “free”. This site below is a great site for researching VPN and what they says about free VPNs:

Dashlane’s VPN isn’t for circumventing content blocks because you don’t get a choice of servers. It automatically connects to the one closest to your location. This is not personally a big deal but it bears mentioning. I’ve found the VPN to be surprisingly fast - consistent 120-130 Mbps on a 150 Mb connection and sub-30 ms pings. If Dashlane can bring this functionality to its Chrome browser extension then I can get rid of the VPN service I’m already paying for.
