I use Dashlane to store passwords, and I like it, but there's one problem I've had with it. I use Activity Monitor to see what's going on, and something strange has been happening with Dashlane lately.
Both DashlaneAgent and DashlanePluginService are using almost 50,000 ports. This wouldn't bother me as much as the fact that both port counts continue to rise as my computer runs, up to 90,000 in one case.
I have 3 questions pertaining to this mystery:
- Is using this amount of ports intentional for Dashlane? (i.e. why would they need so many?)
- Do other people experience this phenomenon?
- Does high port usage cause computer problems?
