1Password, LastPass, Dashlane and More Updated With Support for iOS 12's AutoFill Password Feature

Multiple popular password management apps for iOS devices have been updated with support for a convenient new iOS 12 feature, Password AutoFill. With Password AutoFill, logins and passwords stored in third-party password management apps will be available throughout the iOS 12 operating system right alongside iCloud Keychain, letting you log into websites, apps, and more much more quickly. 1Password, LastPass, Dashlane, Keeper, and Remembear all now support Password AutoFill features. Setting Up Password AutoFill Setting up a password management app to work with Password AutoFill will require you to go to Settings > Passwords & Accounts > AutoFill Passwords to toggle on the AutoFill Password option while also making sure your password management app of choice, such as 1Password, is selected. How it Works The Password AutoFill feature lets a third-party app function just like iCloud Keychain, with your sensitive data protected but easily accessible within apps when you need your login information. When you encounter a login field in an app or on the web, tapping in the entry field will display the stored username and password from your password management app if you've saved one right above the keyboard. From there, you can tap the information to enter it into the app or website's login window, such as in the Spotify example below. There are instances where your password management app does not have saved information entirely right or where you have multiple logins, like if you have multiple Twitter or Instagram accounts. With Instagram, for

Dashlane 6 Launches With New Online Security Enhancements Including 'Identity Dashboard' and VPN

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

Apple ID Website Receives 4/5 'Good' Score in Dashlane's 2017 Password Power Rankings

Password management app Dashlane has enlisted a group of researchers to assess and rank the password policy and security of 37 consumer and 11 enterprise websites. The study examined five password security criteria to result in a point-based ranking system, with points awarded for the following categories: requiring 8+ characters, needing alphanumeric passwords, including a password strength assessment indicator, passing brute force attack simulations, and supporting 2-factor authentication. Based on these data points, the Apple ID sign-in page scored a 4/5 and earned a "Good" ranking. Apple passed on all criteria except for the brute force attack test, where researchers said they were never presented with a security warning ("such as a CAPTCHA code or the account automatically locking") after entering incorrect credentials 10 times in a row. Dashlane mentioned that the study was completed during the week of July 5 - July 14, 2017. "We created the Password Power Rankings to make everyone aware that many sites they regularly use do not have policies in place to enforce secure password measures. It's our job as users to be especially vigilant about our cybersecurity, and that starts with having strong and unique passwords for every account," said Dashlane CEO Emmanuel Schalit. "However, companies are responsible for their users, and should guide them toward better password practices." Above Apple with perfect scores were GoDaddy, Stripe, and QuickBooks, but at the very low end with a score of 0/5 were Netflix, Pandora, Spotify, Uber, and Amazon Web Services. Dashlane

Dashlane Business Updates With Simpler Personal and Work Password Management

Password management company Dashlane today announced an update to its iOS and Android business apps, Dashlane Business, centered around a way for its users to easily navigate between personal and work passwords on their mobile devices. Called "Spaces," the new tool lets company employees keep track of important enterprise information within Dashlane, while simultaneously allowing for the storage of equally important personal passwords and data. A desktop version of Spaces hit Dashlane earlier in the summer, along with Dashlane Business itself, introducing similar capabilities for companies to encourage increased privacy among its employee base. The new addition works as a button on the top left corner of the app that users can tap to bring up their Spaces, and either showcase every password stored in Dashlane, or only those in a particular Space. Thanks to the new update's multitasking ability, more than ever the company said that Dashlane offers "a best-in-class onboarding process, employee experience, and functionality."“Password management blurs the line between home and work. If an employee practices safe password habits at home, that same mindset will carry over into his or her workplace,” said Emmanuel Schalit, CEO of Dashlane. “The majority of notable breaches stem from password hacks, so it’s critical that companies educate their employees on how to manage their passwords and provide them with tools such as Dashlane that make secure password management simple and effective.” While the new update is mainly for its enterprise-focused app, Dashlane did

Dashlane Introduces Revamped iOS App With Improved Navigation

Dashlane today announced a revamped version of its iOS app that will allow for streamlined navigation to make finding passwords and other secure information "easier than ever." Notably, the overhaul encompasses all of Dashlane's current Apple apps, including the ones for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Users can expect the usual services from Dashlane's new app -- like Password Changer and Password Sharing -- in addition to a list of new features, including a new accessibility option that brings font adjustment to the app. The iPad version of Dashlane is also finally getting the Password Changer feature, letting users easily change weak passwords on Apple's tablet. “Today Dashlane offers the most innovative and user-friendly password management solution across Mac, iOS, Android and PC devices,” says Emmanuel Schalit, CEO of Dashlane. “Apple users gravitate toward the platform’s easy-to-use interface and clean design – and we’re excited to announce our new Dashlane app continues to deliver the best-in-class password manager experience for Apple users.” The improvements to navigation include a Quick Search function, a tabbed-bar menu, easier sharing with a new "Contacts" view, and a "Recents" tab so users can quickly jump into the passwords and information they check frequently. The company has also improved Safari integration to offer a better experience when auto-fill and auto-login options are available. Apart from these upgrades, Dashlane hasn't altered its payment structure: the experience is free when limited to one device, while a Dashlane Premium subscription

Dashlane Launches One-Tap Password Changer for iPhone and Apple Watch

Dashlane today announced an update to its existing iPhone app alongside the launch of an all-new Apple Watch experience, both of which bring the service's one-tap password changing feature from desktop to Apple's mobile and wearable devices. Dashlane unveiled the Password Changer feature late last year for the desktop, which allowed users to change multiple passwords at once so they can more easily update their password info if any of their data is ever breached. Today's updates extend that sense of security for Dashlane users to iPhone and Apple Watch, which the company says is completely unique to the service. Earlier this year, we introduced the first ever automatic Password Changer on Dashlane for desktop. And now, Dashlane is the first password manager to let you change multiple passwords with one tap when you’re on the go. In fact, we’re the only password manager that can offer this exclusive feature, because our engineers and design team have been dedicated for years to building a secure, full-featured password manager that you can use anywhere. Password Changer on Apple Watch and iPhone brings all the power of this time-saving security feature to your fingertips . . . and your wrist. Alongside this new feature, the iPhone and Apple Watch Dashlane experiences both allow users to copy and paste passwords from one device to another and use voice search to more quickly parse through passwords. A caveat for Password Changer is that not every website supports the feature, which began with over 70 at launch and has grown to about 180 today. The update to the Dashla
