Dashlane 4.0 update brings a revamped UI, support for more languages, new Note templates and more

Popular password manager app, Dashlane has been updated to version 4.0

Dashlane 4.0 for windows

The app as you may already be aware, is a cross platform one, available for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows devices.

The new update is available for all of the platforms, but we’re going to take a look at the Windows version’s update. First of all, the app’s UI has been given a major makeover, which is a refreshingly good one too.

Here is a screenshot of Dashlane 3, which in comparison with the v4 screenshot featured above, looks a tad dull.

Dashlane 4 has changed the colours of most areas, including the toolbar, and some buttons, to make it look more modern-ish. The left sidebar has also been redesigned as well.

The most important areas of the app namely Passwords, Notes, Personal Info, IDs, and Receipts have new view options: list and grid, along with consistent sorting options (for the views). Scrolling down the list still has the header, aka its persistent.

Dashlane for Windows now supports 7 languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Japanese.

Resize the app using the icon on the bottom right corner, to get a mini-version of the app, which is actually the size of the regular Windows 10 Store Apps.

Other additions to the app are mostly under the hood with 618 new international banks in Payments options, Password Changer for over 300 new sites. The Notes section of the app, has 8 templates, which the company says was added after users asked for them.  Similarly, another requested feature, to add a note to credit/debit cards has been enabled as well.

Download Dashlane 4.0 from the official website.

A huge advantage in Dashlane is that you can import your entire password database from LastPass with just a few clicks.

To do so, click on the LastPass icon in your browser > select Advanced > Export (you will have to enter your master password), after which it would offer you to save it as a CSV file. You can import this from Dashlane’s File > Impro Password option. It also works with Roboform, KeePass, 1Password, PasswordWallet databases.

Oh, and if you are a Waterfox user or some other browser based on Firefox, you will need to install the extension manually. It is not available at the Mozilla Add-ons repository, but the app stores the XPI file, in the directory listed below:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Dashlane\VERSION\Extensions\JetPack_xpi

USERNAME is the one you use to log on to Windows, and VERSION is the version number of the app. In this case it was 4.0.0.98750. Simply drag the extension to your browser window, and it should install it.
