Password manager Dashlane integrates Samsung biometrics technology

July 16, 2015 - 

Password manager Dashlane announced that it is now compatible with Samsung’s fingerprint biometric technology, enabling Dashlane’s password manager system to work with all Samsung devices.

Using Dashlane, users can access everything they securely store in the system, including passwords, notes, credit cards and personal information, by using their fingerprint to verify their identity.

This latest integration with Samsung increases the security and convenience for Dashlane users who operate Samsung devices.

Dashlane users can authenticate their identity within a few steps by activating “Finger Scanner” in the phone’s settings, opening Dashlane on their Samsung device, and placing their finger on the home key for authentication.

The password manager’s biometric authentication will work with all of Samsung’s most popular devices including Galaxy S6, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4, and Galaxy Note Edge.

This integration with one of the largest manufacturer of mobile devices in the world marks another step toward for Dashlane in providing universal authentication on all platforms using all of the latest secure technologies.

“We made a strategic decision after closing our B-Round 12 months ago to put as many resources into product development as possible, and the adoption of biometric technology in the Android ecosystem is just the latest example of our aggressive product roadmap,” said Emmanuel Schalit, Dashlane CEO. “Dashlane already provided Touch ID login on iOS and at the end of May, we announced that we would be implementing fingerprint app login with the new Android M operating system.”
