Dashlane is primarily used as a corporate password manager and has followed managers like Bitwarden, which are more focused on home users when they went open source.
The company said it plans to “update these projects on a quarterly basis, and we may update more frequently going forward as we improve our internal capabilities and processes.”

Everyone from developers to curious customers can explore the code behind Dashlane to see the algorithms and logic behind the mobile apps. You can also get an idea of how password managers work in general.
One benefit for business users, the company points out, is that IT teams can audit the password manager to ensure it conforms to their organization’s security policies.
Dashlane also welcomes feedback from Android and iOS engineers on the quality of its code and encourages ethical hackers to test their skills and try to find vulnerabilities in it, and encourages them if they do so to report them HackerOne Bug Bounty Program (opens in new tab).
While Eshlane accepts this kind of engagement from the developer community, Dashlane states that it doesn’t accept contributions to its software code – yet. However, it is hoped that developers will be able to make such contributions directly on the GitHub page in the future.
Although most of the code is publicly available, Dashlane warns that a full recovery of its software will not be possible. As it says, “We share the recipe, but we had to omit some of the ingredients that make it our own.”
