Last December, FrenchWeb presented Dashlane, start-up created by Bernard Liautaud (ex CEO of Business Objects).
Established both in Paris for R&D and in New York for marketing, it presents itself as a universal Internet assistant to secure the use of personal data and facilitate digital transactions. Clearly, it offers a global solution of automatic filling (username, passwords, e-mail, address …) to create an account in just a few seconds on all online services and then access it with a click without having to remember their identifiers. All data is stored, in encrypted form, in a local digital safe on its own PC.
The mobile version of Dashlane launched this week allows users to connect to websites securely through their iPhones and make online purchases without third parties having access to their personal data. It records and stores the usernames and passwords of the user. Its initiators promise that the mobile version guarantees the same level of data security as that for PC and Mac.
Among the major features of Dashlane:
- Automatic generation of unique passwords for each site
- Connection to an unlimited number of accounts without the need to remember identifiers
- Check-out functionality compatible with all merchant sites
- Click-to-pay universal for easy and secure use of credit cards
- Dashlane Express Check-Out available on 500 of the biggest e-commerce sites

In September 2011, Daslane finalized a fundraising of $ 5 million, or € 3.7 million, from two New York funds, Rho Ventures and FirstMark Capital, as well as its initiator.
