Dashlane's web extension installs directly in your Edge browser and delivers a smooth, seamless password management experience.
Our extension for Edge requires at least version 40 of Edge (if needed, you should be able to download the latest Windows update – and thus the latest Edge update – via this link) and at least version 5 of Dashlane.
How to install your Dashlane extension in Edge
In order to begin installing the Dashlane extension in Edge, please launch your Dashlane desktop application, and go to Extensions > Manage Edge extension.
At that point, a window should automatically open in your Edge browser, prompting you to Get the extension. Click on the Get button and wait for the download to be complete – then, click on Launch. Last but not least, click on Turn it on in order for the extension to be enabled.
Note: Free users will not see a Manage Edge Extension option in their Dashlane app. To obtain the extension anyway, Free users can go to the Microsoft Store and search for Dashlane. However, Free users should remember that their data is not synchronized, so is stored only in the extension itself.
How to sign in to your Dashlane account via the extension for Edge
Once the Dashlane extension is installed and enabled in Edge, you should see a grayed out version of the Dashlane shield icon in your Edge toolbar. It means the extension is installed and enabled, but that you are not yet signed in to your Dashlane account via the extension. Even if you are signed in to your account via our desktop application, you must also sign in to your Dashlane account via the Dashlane extension in Edge in order to browse the web with Dashlane.
To sign in, please click on the shield icon in your Edge toolbar. Our web app will open in your browser for you to sign in to your account.
Click on Log in in the top right corner of the window, and sign in to your account. Note that the first time you log in you will have to authorize this browser with the security code sent to your email address, or else with the second factor authentication you may have chosen to use.
Once signed in, you should see that the shield icon in your Edge toolbar will be colored teal, as shown below:

How to stay signed in to your Dashlane account on the web extension
You now have the ability to have your extension remember your Master Password.
By default, the extension is set to automatically log you out when you close the browser. To avoid this, you can choose to have the extension remember your Master Password.
Note that this is only possible when the device is already registered with your Dashlane account. This option will not appear if it is the first time you log in, or if the device is not registered.
Only enable this feature if you are certain that your computer has a strong password and is safe from unauthorized access. For security reasons, we will ask you to log in with your Master Password every 14 days.
How to check that Dashlane is working in Edge
You should see two impalas in the login form, as shown in the screenshot above. If you do not see anything, please press F5 in order to refresh the page.
These impalas will be blue if you already have an Outlook or Gmail account, or gray if you do not have one. For more about impala colors, please refer to this guide.
If you do not see the impalas, please ensure that the extension is indeed installed and enabled in Edge. To do so:
- Open the Edge main menu (top right corner button) and click on Extensions
- You should find a Dashlane entry. Please click on it. If you find no Dashlane entry, it would mean the extension is not installed. Please refer to the first section of this article for more information.
- There, please ensure that "Dashlane – Password Manager" and "Show button next to the address bar" are both switched ON
Problems with your browser extension?
The Dashlane extension is installed in your Edge browser but it is completely grayed out and you can't get Dashlane to autofill any of your data?
Your first step here should be to ensure that you signed in to your Dashlane account via the extension. In order to verify that, please follow the directions noted above.
If the problem persists, do not hesitate to contact our Support team so that we can figure it out!
If you cannot install the extension in Edge at all, it may be that you do not match the minimum requirements for Dashlane to work in this browser (Dashlane requires Edge 40 at least). In this case, please refer to this article.
