Once you've imported or entered your passwords, Dashlane can make logging in both easy and secure.
Below are instructions for adding and managing your logins and passwords, so that Dashlane can do the rest for you.
Import passwords from your browser or another password manager
From your browser
Dashlane can import passwords from Chrome and Firefox on Windows, and from Chrome, Firefox, and Safari on Mac.
Click on File > Import passwords and select the browsers you want to import your credentials from. 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, then click on Import and the passwords will automatically be added to Dashlane.
In the application, select File > Import in the menu bar at the top of the screen and select the browser you want to import your credentials from. You may choose All browsers, which will import from all three supported browsers at once.
On Android, you have the possibility to import the passwords you previously saved in Google Chrome or simply to import a CSV file. For instructions on how to import your passwords to your Android app, please see:
Dashlane will then display a list of all the passwords that could be found in the browser that you imported from. Select the ones you would like to import and confirm.
From another password manager
Certain password managers allow you to export your data. Dashlane can import passwords from the following:
If you were using a password manager that's not on this list, but that allows you to export your passwords as a CSV file, you can import them that way. For more information, please refer to this article.
Note that importing passwords from a browser or another password manager is not available on Linux and Chromebook nor on iOS.
Add logins using the Inbox Security Scan on your mobile device
If you're on a mobile device (iOS or Android), you can use Inbox Security Scan to load your accounts into Dashlane.
The Inbox Security Scan scans an email address you provide and produces a custom analysis of the online accounts you created using that address.
Please, refer to this article to find out how to do it.
Add passwords as you browse the web
If you're logged in to Dashlane 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.
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).
