If you’re like me, then you’ve got dozens of online accounts, which results in countless passwords that need to be stored carefully. And with so many security attacks these past months, it is becoming increasingly insecure to not take precaution methods. Dashlane is a popular subscription-based password management service that is introducing a new feature that will set it apart from the competition.
With the new Password Changer tool, users can now change all of their passwords with a single click, even those accounts with two-factor authentication enabled. At the moment, the feature is said to work with about 75 major websites at launch, including such popular ones as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, PayPal, Pinterest, and Twitter.
Also, for the time being, the app works on PC and Mac desktop versions, but a mobile version is in the works already. For the tech in this new feature, Dashlane has acquired PassOmatic, a New York-based startup that has created the automatic password change technology.
Users just need to select the passwords they want to change, and Dashlane will automatically change them in a click. The Dashlane-generated password is said to be strong and unique and it will also automatically and securely synced across all their devices. Speaking of the new feature, Emmanuel Schalit, CEO of Dashlane, said the following:
Password Changer is the antidote for future Heartbleeds. The ability to automatically change passwords is revolutionary. It provides users a highly effective way to stay safe from increasingly common security breaches on the scale of Heartbleed. Password Changer introduces a new paradigm of convenience and security for the consumer.
Dashlane also said that it will introduce a recurring password change feature that will automatically change passwords at preset intervals. Thus, users will be able to set Password Changer to automatically change some of the most important passwords every 30 days.
