How to use Dashlane on your Apple Watch as a two-step authentication method
You can use your Apple Watch as an alternative to using your existing authenticator app to obtain the six-digit security codes needed to finish the log in process for your saved accounts in Dashlane in a few simple steps. By setting Dashlane as your two-step authentication method, your Apple Watch is able to provide you with these six-digit security codes in real time. To learn how to enable this feature or add more security codes to your Apple Watch please follow this guide.
In order to use this feature, you must have the following:
- An iPhone with a Dashlane version of 5.0.0 or above
- An Apple Watch with watchOS 4
- An iPhone that is successfully paired with your Apple Watch
- Your Dashlane iOS app is successfully set up as your authenticator app for one or more of your accounts
How it works
After setting up your accounts, open the Dashlane application on your Apple Watch.
From there, locate the account you are logging in to. These six-digit security codes will refresh every 30 seconds and will only display if you are logged into your Dashlane account on your iPhone. If you lock your Dashlane application or your iPhone the codes will still display, however, if you log out of Dashlane they will not.
