1. Dashlane's emergency share function

When you use managers like Dashlane to manage your passwordsYou may be wondering how to share this crucial information with your loved ones in the event of an unforeseen event.

👉 Dashlane offers a feature called "Emergency sharing"which allows share access to your password manager with someone you trust.

By defining an emergency contact and configuring the appropriate settings, you can ensure that your loved ones will have access to your passwords in case of need.

However, this requires the trusted third party to also have a Dashlane account, which can be an obstacle in some cases. There are also 2 other implicit conditions for the transfer to go smoothly.

The beneficiary must have : 

  • of the file containing the data of the person who wishes to share the account, 
  • the password to access the file.

⚠️ If you don't have either of these, you won't be able to access the person's data and it will be lost.

2. Recovering your Dashlane account

To configure the sharing your Dashlane account with a trusted third partyyou need to follow these 5 steps:

  1. Create a DASH file, 
  2. Store and share the file,
  3. Send the password to your trusted contact, 
  4. Import the DASH file into your account to access it, 
  5. Follow the restoration process from Dashlane.

The entire process is detailed here.

Although perfectly explained and accessible to a good number of Internet users, this procedure is not infallible for several reasons:

1. If someone with malicious intent gains access to your Dashlane account, they will be able to export all your data.. ⚠️

2. The account holder is responsible for the secure storage of his file until the day it is accessed by the beneficiary. Dashlane recommends storage on a hard disk or USB key. This presents a hardware risk, as this type of consumer device regularly malfunctions, making it impossible to read the file. There is also a security risk if the device is stolen or lost quite simply. 

3. Finally, a new DASH file must be generated each time a password is updated or a new addition made. This step is very restrictive for the user and risky sinceyou will have to export your data again several times.
