Dashlane gets a major update with version 5.0, includes revamped web UI and machine learning

Dashlane is one of the best available password managers, and it’s stepping up its game again with version 5.0. This update brings a hefty redesign to Dashlane’s brand, but also bakes in a few new features and some machine learning for good measure. It’s 2017, what kind of app or service doesn’t do machine learning anymore?

The biggest change you’ll notice with the new version is Dashlane’s focus on simplicity. They want you to be able to fully access and edit your passwords as quickly as possible, so they’re bringing browser extensions to every major OS and platform and trimming up the web interface for speed. This also means you’ll be able to completely forego the desktop app and just use the Chrome extensions, for example, and you’ll still get the full Dashlane experience.

Dashlane is using machine learning to create the world’s most intelligent autofill, which should more reliably get you logged into your websites without having to click around and figure out exactly which password needs to go where on a website. And in case it does mess up, you’ll only have to fill your password back in once and Dashlane will remember it for your next visit. It will also fully support Android O’s password manager tie-in, too.

The update should begin rolling out to your devices soon, and the new extensions for browsers like Microsoft Edge should be popping up for you to download.
