Dashlane and Golden Frog Form Partnership to Increase Online Security for Customers
Leading password management and personal VPN companies create special offers for their respective services
NEW YORK – June 29, 2015 – Dashlane, the world’s leading password manager and digital wallet, and Golden Frog, a company that fights for online privacy, have teamed up to urge Internet users to take critical steps to better protect themselves and their data online.
Through the partnership, Dashlane will offer all Golden Frog customers six months of free access to its Premium password management service. In turn, Golden Frog will offer Dashlane customers its VyprVPN service with 1 GB of free data, and 500 MB recurring in subsequent months.
“Nearly every press article that lists tips for being more secure online recommends using strong passwords and a VPN service,” said Sunday Yokubaitis, president of Golden Frog. “Through our partnership with Dashlane, we are allowing their privacy-minded customers to try our VPN service so they can determine if it’s the right tool for them to further protect themselves against hackers and data snoops. Furthermore, we’re thrilled to offer our customers access to the premier password management service in the industry.”
Dashlane securely stores passwords and other common personal information, such as email addresses and phone numbers, providing users with a seamless browsing experience with fast logins and easy form filling. With Dashlane Premium, users can sync and backup data across an unlimited number of PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices, share passwords with trusted contacts and get VIP support. Dashlane does not record the “master password” or any hash/derivative of it on its servers, so data can only be decrypted by the customer.
VyprVPN encrypts users’ Internet connections and enables them to thwart the data snooping and inspection of Internet traffic that is regularly practiced by governments and commercial ISPs. By encrypting the “last mile” (the connection between the user’s device/computer and the Internet backbone), users can better ensure their online privacy and open up an uncensored and secure Internet, no matter where they are in the world. Golden Frog owns the hardware at all their VPN server locations and manages its own network to deliver fast and reliable VPN connections.
“Dashlane and Golden Frog share a common mission: to offer people an easy, flexible way to protect themselves online no matter what device they use, and no mattter where they are in the world,” said Dashlane CEO Emmanuel Schalit. “Customers who take advantage of this partnership will arm themselves with two of the best services for the dangers of the online world.”
