In Dashlane your saved logins and passwords are called credentials. These are the keys stored in Dashlane that let you experience your favorite sites without friction.

To learn how to do this, you can watch the video below or carry on reading.

The fastest way to add your passwords is to let Dashlane find and add them for you.

Add passwords from your browser or another password manager

From your browser

Dashlane can find passwords in Chrome (Windows/Mac OS X), Firefox (Windows/Mac OS X), Internet Explorer (Windows) and Safari (Mac OS X).

On Windows

Click on File → Import passwords and choose the browser from which you want to import your passwords. Dashlane will show you a list of all the passwords it was able to find in your browser; select the ones you want to import, click on Import and the passwords will automatically be added to Dashlane.

On Mac OS X 

In the application, select File → Import in the menu bar at the top of the screen and click on Keychain (Safari & Chrome), Firefox or even All browsers. Then Dashlane will import your passwords automatically.

From another password manager

Certain password managers allow you to export your data. Dashlane can import passwords from the following: 

If you are using another password manager but it allows you to export your passwords in a CSV file, you can import from CSV file.

Add passwords as you browse the Web

When you enter a login and password that isn’t saved in the app, it will ask you if you’d like to save it for future use. Stay logged in to Dashlane as you browse the web.

If you visit an account that’s already stored in Dashlane, and you enter a different password than what Dashlane has saved, the app will ask you if you’d like to replace it. This makes sure you always have the right passwords in Dashlane (especially when you reset them).

Add passwords manually

You can add passwords yourself manually.

Go to the Passwords section in Dashlane, and click “Add new”. From there, you just need to fill in the blanks. Usually, the Website, Login and Password fields are necessary. Then click OK to save.
