Dashlane for Android
Browse and access your list of stored passwords easily with Dashlane

These days, a third-party password manager is de rigueur for anyone venturing on to the internet with a clutch of online accounts. You won’t last long relying on weak, easily guessable passwords to protect your personal data when online, so password managers that lock all your passwords away behind a single, master password, have much to recommend them.

Dashlane is a lesser known entity among password managers, but with the release of version 2.0 is aiming to boost its profile. There’s lots to like: AES-256 encryption that derives its key directly from your master password, so it’s not stored anywhere, for example. You can also tie your stored passwords to a single device rather than have it securely synced across all your computers and mobiles.

Another great feature is that Dashlane is free on mobile as well as desktop. And when it comes to mobile experiences, the Android build is far superior to the somewhat limited version for iPhone currently available thanks to the new build being optimised for tablets as well as phones.

Once set up – it’s all very straightforward whether you’re starting from scratching or adding a new device – you can access your login details on websites via Dashlane’s built-in browser, reveal or copy the password or send the password securely via email to someone (or yourself, of course).

Everything you need is here – access to your passwords, auto-fill form information and digital wallet for securely storing payment information. There’s a lack of configurability that means you’ll need to reach for the desktop app to review and update your passwords or import them from another service. Compared to competing services like LastPass, it’s less flexible as a mobile platform, but then you’re not having to pay for for the privilege of using it on your mobile.

What's new in 5.0?

- Automatic in-app logins for owners of devices on Android O.
- Use Dashlane on your mobile as an authenticator app: log in to accounts where two-step authentication is enabled by generating one-time security codes inside Dashlane.
- Dashlane is now available in 11 languages, including Chinese, Dutch, Korean, and Swedish.

Verdict:

Dashlane offers great security features and this is essential for accessing your Dashlane-stored passwords on your Android tablet or phone

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
