Dashlane is designed to make your life online both easier and more secure. By default, Dashlane automatically logs you into the websites you use, but you have control. You can turn off auto-login for a specific website or all websites.
Dashlane won't auto-login or autofill HTTP websites
As a security measure, Dashlane never automatically logs you into or autofills a webpage using HTTP. Dashlane automatically logs you in only on pages using HTTPS. For example, Dashlane autofills https://www.dashlane.com/ but not http://www.dashlane.com/.
Most websites have adopted the HTTPS standard, but if you notice Dashlane refusing to log you in automatically on an HTTP page, remember that it's by design.
Turn off auto-login for a specific website
If you no longer want Dashlane to automatically log you into a specific website, you can turn off the Auto-login setting for that website. Your login info is still autofilled, but you have to select the login button.
- Select the Dashlane D icon in your browser’s toolbar.
- Enter the email address you use for Dashlane and your Master Password.
- In the extension pop-up, select Open the web app.
- Open the login you want to change.
- In the Preferences section, clear the checkbox for Auto-login.
- Select Save.
Turn off auto-login for all websites
From the extension, you can turn off Dashlane auto-login for all websites, and Dashlane won’t automatically log you into any logins in your vault. You can turn on auto-login again anytime.
You can turn off auto-login on Firefox, Edge, Brave, Chrome, other Chromium-based browsers, and the Dashlane Safari extension. You can't turn off auto-login for all websites on the mobile or Dashlane macOS apps.
Turn off auto-login for all logins in your vault:
- Select the Dashlane D in your browser toolbar.
- In the extension pop-up, select Autofill in the top menu and then Global Preferences.
- In the Global Preferences section, turn off Auto-login.
When you turn off auto-login for all websites, if you're logged in to Dashlane, you can click in a form field and choose the login to autofill. You can also use the Dashlane right-click menu in a form field and choose which information you want to autofill.
If you don't have a login saved for a website, you'll see a gray Dashlane D, meaning you don't have information saved in Dashlane. You can click in the form field to search for information to use or create a login.
