NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Dashlane announces its role as the official digital safety partner of the upcoming film Searching, in select theaters August 24th and everywhere August 31st. Searching is the critically acclaimed film that won the audience award at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.Told entirely via the technology devices we use every day to communicate and transact online, Searchingis a hyper-modern thriller that follows a father who must trace his daughter's digital footprints before she disappears forever.
Dashlane's intuitive password manager and suite of online security tools help everyone keep a close eye on their own digital footprints, and tells them what to do if their personal information shows up where it doesn't belong. And as Searching illustrates, when it comes to the safety of critical accounts and personal information for the whole family, busy parents need a way to make online safety that much simpler.
"As a parent of 3 teenagers, I can certainly relate to the increasing complexities kids—and parents—face when managing their growing digital identities," says Jeff Paradise, CMO of Dashlane. "My kids already have dozens of accounts for school, work, social, shopping, streaming, and more."
Dashlane's researchers estimate that the average adult today has 150 online accounts, including many that end up forgotten or unused. With kids establishing accounts at earlier and earlier ages, that number will balloon, making the next generation's task of keeping track of their digital footprints even more onerous.
"When we were approached to partner with Searching, I jumped at the opportunity because Dashlane is the perfect fit," Paradise continues. "Dashlane empowers both children and parents to easily manage and protect their identities while also providing security alerts in the event of a breached account and reinforcing online safety habits like securing public WiFi connections. As both a parent and a citizen of the digital age, Searching feels like it's tapping into something uniquely challenging about the risks of life online in this particular moment."
By partnering with an innovative film like Searching, which highlights the positives and perils of the digital world, Dashlane is spreading the word about the importance of keeping yourself—and your information—safe online.
Dashlane simplifies and secures your digital identity—all your personal information that lives online. Available across all platforms and devices, the intuitive Dashlane app automatically fills and stores passwords, personal data, and payment details to help you manage and protect your digital identity. With patented security architecture, dark web and credit score monitoring, and $1 million in identity theft insurance, Dashlane is the only app that both prevents and protects you from the risks of digitally storing and sharing your data. Available in 11 languages and trusted by 10+ million people in 150 countries (and growing), it's the complete, global solution for living safely and seamlessly online—at home, at work, and everywhere in between.
With offices in New York City and Paris, Dashlane has raised $54 million in venture funding to create a safe and effortless solution for all citizens of the digital world. Learn more at dashlane.com.
