Short on time? Here’s how to cancel your Dashlane subscription and get a refund in 2023:
- 1. Export your passwords. Export your passwords as a CSV file so you can import them into your next password manager.
- 2. Cancel your Dashlane subscription. Cancel auto-renewal for Dashlane and get a refund (if eligible).
- 3. Uninstall Dashlane. Navigate into your computer’s settings and remove the Dashlane application.
- 3. Try an alternative password manager. Download and install a top password manager, like 1Password, to keep your passwords organized and protected in 2023.
Canceling your Dashlane subscription and getting a refund is a simple process. If you’ve been using Dashlane for 30 days or less, you’re eligible for a full refund. There are different steps to get a refund depending on whether you purchased Dashlane through the website, the Google Play Store, or the App Store.
Requesting a refund immediately terminates your Dashlane plan. Normally, when you unsubscribe from Dashlane, you’ll be able to use your plan until the end of the billing period. However, if you get a refund, you won’t be able to continue using it at all.
Once you’ve canceled your plan and gotten a refund, you should install an alternative password manager. I tested the top password managers in 2023 for you and picked my 3 favorites. 1Password is my top choice because it’s 100% secure, comes with a wide range of features that make password management easy, and provides intuitive apps for all major platforms.

Best Dashlane Alternatives in 2023
Quick summary of the best Dashlane alternatives in 2023:
🥇1. 1Password — Best Overall Alternative to Dashlane
1Password is my favorite password manager in 2023. It uses uncrackable AES 256-bit encryption — the same encryption used by banks and militaries around the globe — and has a zero-knowledge policy, meaning nobody besides you has access to any of your information. It also has a slew of extra features and a very intuitive layout.
I prefer 1Password’s multiple vault system to Dashlane’s web-based vault. 1Password allows you to create as many vaults as you’d like to better manage your passwords and other info, and you can easily share access to individual vaults. I liked that I could share some vaults with family members while keeping others totally private.
1Password comes with a lot of great security features that all performed well during my tests, like:
- Two-factor authentication (2FA). Enhances your vault security.
- Watchtower. Monitors password strength and security.
- Travel Mode. Hides your vaults while you’re traveling.
- Privacy Cards. Virtual payment cards (US only).
- Local data storage option. Save passwords on your device rather than the cloud.
- And a lot more…
I really like 1Password’s Travel Mode; it’s great when you need to hide sensitive info (such as company encryption keys and social media logins) while crossing borders. When you turn Travel Mode on, only vaults you’ve marked as “Safe for Travel” will be visible. It won’t show a change in status either, so nobody will be able to tell you’re in Travel Mode. It’s a feature that’s unique to 1Password, so if you travel a lot, 1Password is a particularly great choice.
1Password covers a single user for $2.99 / month and includes all of 1Password’s features. I think the Families plan offers the best value, though — it costs $4.99 / month and covers up to 5 users, with the option to add an unlimited number of additional users for a smalle fee. That makes 1Password a great choice for larger families and households — Dashlane’s friends and family plan on the other hand is capped at 10 users. All of 1Password’s plans come with a 14-day free trial period, so you have some time to test it out risk-free and make sure it works for you.

🥈2. RoboForm — Best Value Password Manager (With Flawless Form-Filling Abilities)
RoboForm is an intuitive password manager with the best form-filling capabilities on the market. While 1Password and Dashlane both offer decent form-filling, RoboForm can flawlessly fill out even the most complex online forms (like tax forms and more). When I tested its form-filling out, it successfully completed every form I tried — all I had to do was set up an identity template and RoboForm did the rest.
RoboForm also comes with a range of additional features, including:
- Multiple 2FA options.
- Password strength auditing.
- Data breach monitoring.
- Emergency access.
- Secure bookmark storage.
- And a lot more…
Organizing your vault is very simple. You can choose to keep all your passwords in your main vault, or you can create folders and subfolders — including shared folders — to better manage them. RoboForm’s vault system is just as easy to use as Dashlane’s and doesn’t require any technical expertise to master.
RoboForm has a very intuitive layout. During my tests, I had no problem sharing passwords, generating passwords, sharing emergency access, and checking for weak or compromised passwords. The 2FA options work well too, giving you the option of using authenticator apps, biometric logins, and more to verify your account. That said, 1Password and Keeper have more 2FA options (like smartwatch compatibility).
RoboForm comes with a decent free version, which includes form-filling, unlimited passwords, secure bookmarks, and password auditing. However, it is a bit more limited than Dashlane’s free version, since Dashlane offers 2FA and a few other features.
RoboForm Everywhere adds 2FA options, unlimited device syncing, and cloud backup for $0.99 / month. Upgrading to RoboForm Everywhere Family covers up to 5 users for $27.70 / year. RoboForm’s plans are a lot more budget-friendly than many of its competitors, and they’re all backed by a generous 30-day money-back guarantee.
🥉3. Keeper — Highly Secure With Unique Features
Keeper is a highly secure password manager with a wide range of features, including a lot of multi-factor authentication options like using authentication apps, security keys, and even smartwatches (a feature Dashlane doesn’t have). During my tests, all of Keeper’s features were easy to use and worked flawlessly. It was easy to save passwords, auto-fill passwords and web forms, share passwords, and set up specific password permissions.
Keeper’s security features also include:
- Secure messaging app (KeeperChat).
- Encrypted cloud storage (10 GB on the family plan).
- Password strength auditing.
- Several MFA options.
- Dark web monitoring.
I really like KeeperChat, which is a secure messaging app for Keeper users. It’s a feature that’s unique to Keeper — not even Dashlane or 1Password have their own messaging apps. KeeperChat automatically encrypts messages and comes with a lot of options for safely sending and receiving messages, including self-destruction, message retraction, and private galleries for storing photos.
Keeper’s premium plans begin at $3.75 / month with Keeper Unlimited, which gives you unlimited passwords on unlimited devices for 1 user. It includes features like password sharing and MFA options. Keeper Family costs $44.98 / year and includes licenses for up to 5 users and 10 GB of cloud storage. Both plans include dark web monitoring and give you the option to purchase up to 100 GB of storage (more than even Dashlane offers). All of Keeper’s premium plans come with a 30-day free trial, so you can test them out for yourself risk-free.
