Although Enpass and Dashlane have the same objective – to safely store your personal information in a secure vault – they cater to distinct target audiences. Enpass focuses its business model on mobile, requiring users to pay to lift restrictions on its mobile app but still offering all of its features for free to desktop users. Dashlane is a high-end solution that goes far beyond of password management. Due to this, the Dashlane free plan is very limited and the premium plan comes at a higher price point than the competition. Depending on what you're looking for, only one of these two pieces of software will work best for you.

As a desktop password manager, Enpass is one of the best providers out there since it offers its full array of features entirely for free. You can store an unlimited number of data entries and share them with others as well as sync between devices via third-party cloud software. However, on mobile, Enpass limits the number of data entries to 25, which means that sooner or later you'll be forced to upgrade to a paid plan, costing $0.99 per month with annual payments.
There is nothing you can't store in Enpass's vault. From credit card details to clothing sizes, there are pre-built forms for anything you can think of. In fact, even if you don't find the type of data entry you want, you can create your own forms by using one of the 20+ available fields.
Since Enpass is a local password manager, it stores all your information on your device. Besides being cheaper for the company, it actually makes your information more secure as it doesn't travel the web unless you share your vault with someone or sync through devices. Furthermore, Enpass also offers the option to create a key logger, which makes it even more difficult for anyone to hack the software.
It's easy to put Dashlane aside due to its high price. But, in this case, a higher cost means higher quality. This password manager is one of the best on the market because it offers far more than password storage. In addition to the various data entries supported, Dashlane goes a step further by integrating a password auditor and dark web monitoring. It also comes with a built-in VPN to ensure that your personal information is safe while using an insecure Wi-Fi connection. Basically, on top of offering various password management tools, you can view Dashlane as a technological fortress that doesn't let anyone take a glimpse of your stored data (unless you share it with someone that is).
Unfortunately, Dashlane’s free plan is extremely limited, as it only lets you store up to 50 data entries and works on just one device. Naturally, by upgrading to a paid plan you’ll be able to store an unlimited number of entries on all your devices. The main problem is that the premium version has a whopping price of $4 per month with yearly payments. Fortunately, there's a 30-day money-back guarantee to take advantage of and ensure that the investment is worthwhile.
Since Dashlane is so expensive, it isn't the most competitive option for users who only want to store passwords. Enpass does this for a quarter of the price, after all. Even so, Enpass’s syncing and sharing capabilities leave much to be desired, as relying on third-party cloud services is far from perfect. Dashlane, on the other hand, provides so many security features that having your information stored in the cloud isn't a problem. If you're willing to spend more money to get a seamless experience throughout all your devices and protection against data breaches, Dashlane is irrefutably one of the best on the market.
