New version of Dashlane brings VPN connection and protection of your payment data

Password management services have an unquestionable leader, 1Password, and therefore need to find alternative ways to maintain their relevance with extra features or focus on a specific type of user.

The main one is a new feature called Identity Dashboard (?Identity Panel?), which acts as a kind of privacy center verifying that your passwords are always secure and notifying you of possible security holes in the services you use then, if an online store that you have an account issues a It is communicated warning that the data of its users have been intercepted, for example, Dashlane notifies you immediately and the automatic protection options, such as changing your password, revoking access to your credit card number and much more.
