OpenYOLO (You Only Login Once), an open API that will enable App Developers to access passwords stored in password managers to easily and securely log users into their Android applications in the works by Dashlane and Google.
Dashlane says it is committed to increasing user security and believe that the best way to do this is to champion open source security projects–which Dashlane has done earlier this year by becoming the first password manager to adopt the FIDO Alliance’s Universal Second Factor (U2F) authentication standard. We look forward to expanding this collaborative project that will benefit the entire security industry.
Dashlane is spearheading the collaboration with the other top password management companies to contribute the industry’s security and software development expertise to further design, and implement the open API. Passwords are users’ first line of defense and the cooperation between multiple password managers is a groundbreaking step towards simplifying security for users of all devices.
As founding contributors to OpenYOLO, Dashlane, Google and all of the contributing leaders in password management look forward to taking the API beyond Android devices, and enabling universal implementation by various apps and password managers across all platforms and operating systems.
Dashlane has helped 5 million users manage and secure their digital identity. The app is available on PC, Mac, Android, and iOS, and has won critical acclaim from top publications, including: The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.
