This week I received an odd email. It was a message from Dashlane, welcoming me to their password manager service. This was odd, only because I did not open an account with Dashlane.
I contacted them through their support email explaining the situation. I requested that the account be suspended and that they contact me to discuss the implications of this. Christine from Dashlane responded quite promptly, and explained that I could delete “my” account, but she cautioned me that I would not be able to use “my” Dashlane account if I deleted it, and that I would lose all of my data. It was pretty clear that this was a canned response, or else she didn’t read very clearly.
