In addition to the funding news, it was announced that Lyft’s current Chief Marketing Office, Joy Howard, will join the Dashlane team. She is hired as the company’s new CMO and her tenure will start in August later this year. 

Joy Howard said in a written statement,

Hackers are advancing their game and after the increase in credential stuffing attacks, such as what Spotify suffered a week ago, it has become very necessary to have a password manager app. These apps can store multiple passwords in one place with a master password or biometric.
