My Favorite Genealogy Things

These are a few of my favorite genealogy things (no, I’m not going to sing and you don’t want me to) from my presentation at Rootstech 2014 this morning on using Macs and iPads for genealogy.

Dashlane

Dashlane is the password manager that I recommend. But it’s so much more than that. It’s available in an iPhone and iPad app and on your desktop. The Dashlane app also:

  • Stores your passwords using military-grade encryption
  • Syncs them automatically across all your devices regardless of platform
  • Notifies you when a website has been compromised
  • Creates online purchase receipts
  • Shares passwords with other designated users through encrypted email
  • Generates strong passwords

The Dashlane Security Dashboard evaluates how safe you are online, based on passwords that are weak, used across multiple sites, or from a site that’s been hacked.

Dashlane Is My New Must-Have App – Tuesday’s Tip

Dashlane Genealogy Sassy Jane

Dashlane is my new must-have app, the one I want forever in my Genealogy Productivity folder on my iPad and iPhone or my desktop for that matter. It’s billed as a password manager, but it’s so much more than that.

Yes, it keeps track of your passwords, automatically logs you in to any website on any of your devices (desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone on any platform), and never loses passwords. In fact, with your permission, Dashlane can burrow into your browsers and mine them for user names and passwords you might have forgotten.

It’s also autofills forms seamlessly in any browser on any device and eWallet app, all using military-grade encryption. Remember one master password and Dashlane keeps track of the others.

Readers might remember my search for the ideal password manager in the past. If you want to take Dashlane for a spin, use this link to download and get the first six months of Premium free courtesy of Sassy Jane’s Premium subscription.
