Dashlane’s web app gives you a simpler, safer way to live your online life. The web app is available within a lightweight browser extension in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, and Chromium-based browsers, such as Opera and Brave. You can instantly autofill logins and forms and automatically generate and save strong, secure passwords.
Get the extension for your favorite browser
The Dashlane web app is officially available for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari, but you may also use Dashlane in Chromium-based browsers, such as Opera and Brave.
To download the extension on a Linux or Chromebook machine, visit our download page. You're taken through our web onboarding, during which Dashlane is installed on your browser. The Dashlane extension for Linux and Chromebook is currently compatible with only Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.
For a quick overview, watch our video about installing the Dashlane extension on any browser other than Safari. Visit the Safari section in this article to learn how to install the Dashlane app for Safari.
Use these steps to install the extension on Chrome:
- Open our extension page in the chrome web store.
- Select Add to Chrome. Confirm that you want to add the extension to Chrome.
- Select Add extension.
With Chrome 83 and later, you manage extensions through a puzzle piece-shaped button in the Chrome toolbar. You can still pin extensions to the Chrome toolbar, but all newly installed extensions first appear under the new extensions puzzle icon.
Use these steps to pin Dashlane to your Chrome toolbar after you've installed the extension:
- Select the extension icon in your toolbar.
- Select the pin icon next to the Dashlane extension. When you pin the extension, the pin icon turns from gray to blue, and the extension's icon shows up next to the search bar.
The Dashlane icon remains in your Chrome toolbar for easy access.
Use these steps to install the extension in Firefox:
- Open our extension page in Firefox.
- Select Add Dashlane now.
- Select Continue to Installation.

Use these steps to install the extension in Edge from the Microsoft Store:
- Open our extension page in the Microsoft Store.
- Select Get. Confirm that you want to add the extension to your browser.
- Select Add extension.
Because Microsoft Edge is a Chromium browser, Edge is also compatible with the Dashlane extension available in the chrome web store. However, you'll need to allow extensions from other stores in the browser first. Go to the Extensions menu and enable it.
Use these steps to install the extension in Edge from the Chrome web store:
- Open our extension page in the Chrome web store.
- Select Add to Chrome. Confirm that you want to add the extension to your browser.
- Select Add extension.
Use these steps to install the new Dashlane Safari app:

- Search for "Dashlane" and select the download icon to download "Dashlane - Password Manager".
- Quit and reopen Safari, select Safari in the menu bar again, and then select Preferences.
- You're prompted to turn on the Dashlane extension if you haven't already. If you are, select Turn On.
- In the Extensions tab of Preferences, if the checkbox for Dashlane isn't selected, select it. Clear the checkboxes for all other instances of Dashlane, if applicable. Then, close Preferences.

Create your Dashlane account
After you've successfully installed the Dashlane extension in your browser, Dashlane prompts you to create your Dashlane account.
- If you already have a Dashlane account, select Log in.
- If you need to create a Dashlane account, choose your Dashlane email address and your Dashlane Master Password.
- Your Dashlane email address is what you'll use to log in. You'll receive emails from Dashlane to this email address unless you change your contact email address.
- Your Master Password is the key you use to encrypt and unlock the data you save in Dashlane. Remember, to keep security as strong as possible, only you know your Master Password. Dashlane doesn't know your Master Password and can't send your password to you if you forget it.

Stay logged in to your Dashlane account
You can have your extension remember your Master Password.
By default, the extension logs you out automatically when you close the browser. You can choose to have the extension remember your Master Password—select the Keep me logged in for 14 days checkbox.
This option doesn't appear if you're logging in for the first time or if you haven't registered the device.
Important: Turn on this feature only if you're certain that your computer is safe from unauthorized access. For security reasons, we still ask you to log in with your Master Password every 14 days.
As an alternative, we support login with biometrics or a security key for the Dashlane extension.
