With Secure Notes, you can save private keys to software, WiFi passwords, and other important information that needs to be stored securely but accessed easily. Keep them safe, private, and accessible only to you and the people you choose to share them with.
Note: Secure Notes aren't part of a free plan. You need to subscribe to one of our paid plans.
Create a Secure Note
On the web app
- Go to the Secure Notes section.
- Select Add New. The note editor opens.
On your iOS (Apple) device
- Open the Dashlane app. On the Home screen, select the + icon.
- Select Add Secure Note from the menu. The editor opens.
- Enter your note and select Done and Close.
On your Android device
- Open the Dashlane app and select Secure Notes.
- Select the + icon. The editor opens.

Search for a Secure Note
Search for a note using Dashlane's search bar. If you've locked your note, remember that you need to enter your Master Password to access this note from the search bar.
Delete a Secure Note
You can delete any Secure Note from your account. Open or edit the Secure Note and select Delete, sometimes shown as a trash bin icon.
If you delete an item someone shared with you, Dashlane won't delete the item from the creator's Dashlane account.
If you delete an item you created and then shared, Dashlane will delete the item from all Dashlane accounts it's shared with.
If you no longer want to share a Secure Note with a person or group but don't want to delete it, you can revoke access to it. Dashlane deletes revoked shared Secure Notes from the other Dashlane accounts.
Share a Secure Note with other people
After creating a Secure Note, you can safely share it with other people who have Dashlane accounts. Open or edit the Secure Note and select Share, sometimes shown as a person with an arrow icon. Enter one or more email address and select Send.
If you're a member of a Dashlane business plan, you can also share Secure Notes with Dashlane groups.
If you share a Secure Note with the incorrect person or group or change your mind, you can edit or revoke access to the Secure Note. Dashlane deletes the revoked shared Secure Note from the other Dashlane accounts.
Note: For now, you can't share Secure Notes that have files attached or attach files to shared Secure Notes. Files attached to Secure Notes are also not included in DASH exports.
Assign a category to a Secure Note
You can choose a category for a note, which helps you sort your notes.
Important: Any categories you created in the now unavailable desktop apps are still available to select, but you can't create new categories or delete or rename existing categories. We'll do our best to add this feature as soon as possible, but we don't have an estimated delivery date. In the meantime, you can add keywords to the note text and then search for those keywords to locate the item.
Assign a color to a Secure Note
You can assign different colors to your Secure Notes to make them easier to identify. Open or edit the Secure Note and select the Color option, sometimes shown in the Secure Note's More Options section or as an option when you select the wrench icon or the 3-dot menu.
Attach files to a Secure Note
You can use the same powerful encryption and security infrastructure used to protect your passwords and Secure Notes to encrypt and store sensitive documents in your Dashlane app.
Lock and unlock a Secure Note
You can lock a specific Secure Note so that your Master Password is required to unlock it. You won't have to enter your Master Password more than once every five minutes or right after you've logged in.
Select a Space for your Secure Note
If you're a member of a Dashlane business plan, you can also choose to store the Secure Note in your Personal Space or your Business Space.
