The Perfect Password-Theft Cure – Dashlane

Hey, there!

This falls under the category of defending the success of your VO career via technology…keeping your passwords safe from malware that is out to steal them.

You’ve probably heard about (or maybe been affected by) any number of malware attacks that place software on your machine, and intercept your communications – supposedly safe, encrypted communications – including your passwords.

Every site that has contacted their users after one of these attacks has had one message: change your password for our site.

Every site, that is, except for one – because they were completely protected.

I’m here to tell you that there’s a better path, one that I chose to follow several years ago, and am thrilled with.

It happens to be the same site that didn’t need to have its users change their password.

Here’s why it’s the perfect cure for the malware blues.

It’s called Dashlane. It’s like a storage locker for your passwords, a wallet that’s super-encrypted that contains all of the passwords you use.

And it goes one step further: it generates highly random, extremely strong passwords that are the most difficult of all to guess (one estimate says that a hacker would take centuries on the fastest, largest computer network in the world to figure out any of them).

And you don’t have to remember any but one of those passwords – you just need Dashlane. With Dashlane running (and it only runs when you enter the one password you do need to remember, your master password), it enters your passwords for you.

Automatically.

That means that if you are a member of a casting, work, play, search or email site (including Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, major dating sites, shopping sites and 20,000 to 500,000 more sites), you didn’t and don’t have to worry about changing your Dashlane password, since it’s never stored anywhere unencrypted.

You still have to go through the chore of changing any password on any site that might be affected, no matter whether you use a password wallet like Dashlane or not, but Dashlane makes that super easy – you do it with the Dashlane app.

Now…here’s the good news. Dashlane is free.

Let me repeat that.

It’s free. Absolutely free.

Dashlane Premium - 6 months freeBut I strongly suggest one thing: don’t get the free version. Get the cheap, cheap, cheap Dashlane Premium version, because it allows you to sync all of your passwords amongst all of your devices the moment you have Dashlane create one. That means that when you run Dashlane on your computer, and add a strong password, Dashlane will make sure all your other devices (smartphone, tablet, etc) know about it and make it instantly available there.

With the Premium version, you’ll also get free cloud backup of your passwords, web access to your passwords should you lose a device, and premium VIP support should you get stuck.

It’s great.

And here’s a link that will get you 6 months of Dashlane Premium for free:

I use it. And can’t live without it.

Hope this helps.

    I feel really good about my demo. It is a quick and fun process, even for someone like me who gets very self concious. :)

    The demos are great. Superb quality. Why go anywhere else?

    Having a well-produced demo is one of the most important things in the VO business. I had a number of demos made from other producers in the past and they all had one thing in common — that manufactured, cookie cutter sound!
    What sets David apart from the rest, besides his affordable price and tremendously fast turn around time, is that all of the clips you record with him sound unique. Each spot sounds like an actual commercial you recorded for a job.
    My agent loved the quality and even asked who produced it to refer his other talent there!

    Thanks again, David for producing such a great, high quality demo for me. You made the process relaxing and enjoyable. I urge anyone reading this unsolicited reply to listen to David’s student demos to hear the difference for yourself. Anyone would be lucky to work with him

    I can not thank you enough. I worked so hard on 15 page IVR project, one day I cryed, look for answers, pull my hear (not really) but I was about until another VO send me this great tool. Thanks!

    When v123 indicates the audition is for a student/ nonprofit are we to assume it is for $0. If so, why does the audition ask for an amount to be entered?

    David,
    I did get this scam through Voice 123. In our discourse, they offered me the gig and they gave me the name of a legit local place to record and the same runaround with the money. I didn’t send anything, but instead, I called the studio to make sure the booking was for the day we set up, and lo and behold, the people there had no idea what I was talking about. I then tried to call back my “contact person” who was setting this up and there was a fax machine beep on the other end. I immediately contacted Voice 123 and told them what had happened. You know what they say…if it sounds togaed to be true, it probably is. Thanks for the reminder!
