With many small startups and companies struggling to keep afloat during this ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many reputed companies are coming forward to aid and providing their resources at no charge. The latest of these are Dashlane and 1Password; both of them removing the 30-day trial restriction and extending accordingly.
Dashlane free access to 3 months of Premium and Business Subscriptions
“These are hard times. We want to do our part,” expresses the Dashlane Team in the company’s blog post. “We’re waiving the first 3 months of Dashlane Premium subscriptions for new individuals who need Dashlane’s password manager and password sharing. This also applies to Dashlane Business for corporate accounts.”
The offer is valid for the newly-registered only or who haven’t subscribed to Premium or Business plans in the past. The free users should receive a promo code to their registered email address (with another discount code for the annual subscription as well) to activate the Dashlane Premium.
As for the Dashlane Business plan, the 30-day free trial (for up to 30 employees) has been replaced with a much longer 90-day time frame and for an unlimited number of users. Moreover, both the Premium and the Business trial are commitment-free and don’t require credit card information.
The Dashlane Premium comes at $3.33 per month billed annually and the Business plan at $4.00 per user per month billed annually.
Dashlane Premium offers to save unlimited passwords, sync across unlimited devices, securely share unlimited accounts, payments, and forms autofill, VPN protection, 2FA, and dark web monitoring & alerts. Similarly, the Business tier has everything the Premium has with an ability for an admin to monitor the team’s password health, security issues, and manage permissions.

1Password extends 30-day free trial to 6-month
1Passsword has been offering a 30-day trial for its Teams plan, a part of the business package. However, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has inspired the company to make a move; to extend the 30-day trial to a 180-day trial.
“We’re removing the 30-day trial period on 1Password Business so companies can start keeping their teams secure without getting finance involved,” Jeff Shiner, 1Password CEO, announced in a blog post.
After we tried it for ourselves, though the company state “1Password Business” in the blog post, its 1Password Teams extended free trial that is being offered.
Normally a $3.99 per user per month billed annually (after the trial), this extended 1Password Teams trial doesn’t require credit card information or a commitment.
With the 1Password Teams plan, the admin can delegate roles and rights to teams and individuals, and monitor the audit trails. Besides, the plan includes unlimited shared vaults & storage, 1GB document storage per person, 5 guest accounts for limited sharing, and 2FA and multi-factor authentication.
As the companies are feeling the pressure to adopt (and adapt) the “work from home” culture to stay safe from the spread of the virus, these two tools, of course, should help to maintain organizations’ cybersecurity and manage the workforce remotely.
