You just created a Dashlane account. Let's break down the basics and get you set up.
If you're setting up Dashlane using a Chromebook or Linux, please go to Getting started with the Dashlane web app.
When you're first setting up your Dashlane account, you don't need to add all your passwords right away. We have a few quick ways to get started by bringing over passwords from other places you have saved them. You can add your most-used passwords by using one—or all—of the methods described below.
Method 1: Save passwords as you browse the web
- Ensure you've installed the Dashlane browser extension and logged in to Dashlane.
- If you’re using Chrome, Firefox or Edge, the Dashlane D will be dark green.
- If you're using the Safari browser, the Dashlane D should be dark gray.
If you're not sure you have the extension or it's not working correctly, please review these steps.
- Browse the web and log in to sites as you usually would. Once you have the extension set up, any time that you log in to a site that you haven't saved in Dashlane yet, you will receive a prompt asking if you’d like Dashlane to save that password for future use.
- Click Save when Dashlane asks if you want to store your password, and you'll be able to use Dashlane to log in automatically next time!
Note that if you log in to an account you've already saved in Dashlane with a different password than what Dashlane has saved, the app will ask you if you’d like to replace it. This ensures you always have the correct passwords in Dashlane (especially when you reset them).
On the Web App
- Click My Account and then click Import Passwords. A popup displays allowing you to do one of the following:
- Drag and drop a DASH or CSV file.
- Click browse your computer to locate and select the file.
- Click Upload.
You can import passwords at any point during your Premium Trial. Free Dashlane accounts will not see these options because free accounts are limited to 50 stored passwords. If you are using Dashlane Premium or Premium Plus, there is no limit on the number of passwords you can save.
Follow the steps for the app you're using:
- In the web app, select Passwords from the left-hand menu and click Add new.
- On iOS, go to the Passwords section and tap on the plus sign (+).
- On Android, select Passwords in the bar at the top of your credentials and tap + Add Password at the bottom right.
Then fill in at least the website, login, and password, type or generate a password, and save the entry!
First, make sure your Dashlane browser extension is installed and on for this to work. If you aren't sure that's the case, get the extension for your browser.
Now that you've added your credentials to Dashlane, you can log in to all your web accounts with one click.
- When you visit a website, look for the dark green Dashlane D logo in the login fields (if the Dashlane logo is gray, you’re logged out or do not have that credential saved yet).
- When you click into a field, Dashlane will display a drop-down list for you to choose the credential you want to use.
- Once you've selected the login you want, we'll autofill the password linked to it. For example, if you click in the Username field, select your email address or username, and let us do the rest.
Tired of filling in registration forms for every website you sign up for? Dashlane can do the legwork.
- Click in a field and choose a stored profile you want to use to populate the form.
- Dashlane will detect and autofill the fields in the form with your data. If nothing appears, you're probably logged out or need to add data to the 'Personal Info' tab or the other information in the Vault section of your Dashlane app.

Breaches are unfortunately common, and we want you to be the first to know if your account might have been compromised.
We'll send you an alert if a hack is linked to an account you have stored in Dashlane and prompt you to change that password and any other accounts using a similar password. Learn more about these types of alerts.
Update any weak or reused passwords, and let Dashlane do the hard work of remembering complex, unique passwords for all of your accounts. We have a few tools that will help you do this.
- Password Changer gives you the option to automatically change passwords for compatible accounts in seconds.
- Password Generator automatically offers to generate new, unique passwords for you that you'll never even have to learn. You can also use it to generate passwords for existing accounts.
- Password Health lets you see your overall password health score and a detailed breakdown of your compromised, reused, and weak passwords. Learn more about how to use Dashlane to find out how secure you are.
