To download and install Dashlane on your Android device, you'll need to accept Dashlane's required Android permissions. Depending on your version of the OS, the exact names of the permissions may differ.
Dashlane for Android requires these permissions:
- In-app purchases: With this permission, you can buy a Premium subscription directly from the Dashlane app.
- Identity: These permissions are used to add a "Dashlane" account that stores your settings.
- Network and WiFi connection information: Dashlane requires a network connection. Mainly this permission allows Dashlane to sync your data when you’re connected, and not bother trying when you’re not.
- Photo/media/file: Dashlane caches pictures on your device to reduce the amount of bandwidth the app uses.
- Others: These permissions are mostly used by the Dashlane in-app auto-login feature.
These permissions are requested only when you use a specific feature that needs permission:
- Contacts: This permission allows the Sharing feature to suggest contacts you might want to share data with.
- Camera: This permission is required for Dashlane's 2-factor authentication, more specifically to capture QR codes.
- Storage: This permission is used for secure file storage so you can save files locally on your device.
