Generating a strong password from the password field

You can use Dashlane to create and store secure, one-of-a-kind passwords. To do this, simply click in the new password field of a site when you register or when you are changing your password. You will see a button appear to generate a password.

How to save your new, strong password

Don't forget to save this information when Dashlane asks - you will see a pop-up window and you need to click on the REPLACE or SAVE button (depending on whether you're changing a password on a site or creating a new account with a strong password).

Generating a custom strong password from the browser extension

/!\  Please note that the full extension menu is not available in Internet Explorer. You need to use Chrome, Firefox or Safari.

​You can generate a custom strong password through the Dashlane browser extension. To do this click on the extension in your browser's toolbar and then click on the 2nd tab with the symbols on it.

You can also click on the Use as Defaults button at the bottom to make these settings your default settings for all your generated passwords (even in other browsers, like Internet Explorer).

How to see a list of all your generated passwords

If you need to, you can go to Tools > See Generated Passwords in the Dashlane application to view all the passwords generated by Dashlane. More information: Finding any password that Dashlane generated on a website
