Most websites have a login and a password field, both on the same page. But some websites put the login and password on two different pages or have more than two login fields.
You can log in to these sites using Dashlane's auto-login feature.
Log in to a site with a two-page login
For security reasons, some websites use logins spread out over two steps or two separate pages. You often see this used on banking or other sites that need more security. These sites usually ask for your login name or username on the first page and your password on the second page.
Once you have added your login to Dashlane, remember that the dark green Dashlane D logo in the login field means that Dashlane is ready to log you in.
Select the login field. From the pop-up displaying all of your saved logins for this site, select the one that you want to log in with.
On the next page, Dashlane autofills the password corresponding to your selected login.
Log in to a site with extra login fields
Some sites ask for an extra login field when signing in. This extra field could be an ID number, a PIN code, or a secret phrase, for example. You often see this used on banking for more security. You can use Dashlane to automatically log you in to these sites.
You can do this in two ways:
- Log in to the site and have Dashlane automatically save your login
- Manually create the login in Dashlane
Method 1: Automatically save logins with multiple fields
The first step is to log in to your website as you would normally. You see gray Dashlane D logos in the login fields. The gray logo means that Dashlane recognizes these fields but does not have the information to autofill them.
Once you complete the login fields and select Sign In, you'll see a pop-up asking you to save the login in Dashlane. Select Save if you want Dashlane to remember this login next time you visit this site.
Method 2: Manually add login with multiple fields
Another way to add a login with multiple fields is to create the login directly in Dashlane in the Logins section and select Add new.
Complete the fields as you normally would. Note that the "Alternate username" field won't be available at first, so you can first add your username or email and the password and then select Save. Then use the search bar or browse your password list to retrieve the newly created password. Now that you've entered the primary login, you'll have access to the "Alternate username" field, where you can put the necessary ID number, PIN code, or secret phrase.
Select Save again when done.
Still having problems?
Take a look at an example using USAA.com.
Pages with a username and password on the first page and a PIN on the second page, such as USAA.com, can be hard for Dashlane to analyze. Dashlane might identify the PIN field on the second page as a primary login field instead of a secondary one.
In this case, you can choose Autofill something else to customize how Dashlane interprets that field. Using the web app, you can specify that the field is an alternate username, and Dashlane will remember it the next time you log in!
