If you see a red light on the Dashlane icon

This problem can happen when you install the Dashlane browser extension on a system that is not supported or that is running an outdated version of Dashlane.

If you see a red light on the Dashlane icon, click on the icon to see which one of these two messages you have:

Case 1: Using Dashlane on an unsupported system

Dashlane is not compatible on this computer. See the list of support operating systems here.

What to do:

Unfortunately, Dashlane cannot work on this computer. Here is how to hide the Dashlane icon in your browser toolbar:

Either:

On Windows, click on the Opera button in the top-left corner and select Extensions → Extensions manager in the menu;

On macOS, open Opera and select View → Show Extensions in the menu bar at the top of the screen (macOS);

Find Dashlane in the list.

Enable Hide from toolbar

Case 2: Using Dashlane on Windows or macOS

What to do:

You just need to click on Get the app or on this link to download Dashlane on your computer. After you installed the application, the extension will be working in Chrome. You can learn how to install the Chrome extension from the Dashlane application by referring to this section.

Make sure neither Dashlane nor Opera run in Administrator mode (Windows only)

Please check your Dashlane icon on your desktop or taskbar. If you see a yellow and blue shield on the icon, that means that it's running in administrator mode and won't be able to communicate with your browsers (if you're running your browsers in non-admin mode).

Or maybe you see this pop-up in your browser, but clicking on it does nothing?

Then you need to do the following steps. Even if you don't see these things, you might want to do the following steps anyway to make sure this isn't the problem.

Simply right-click your Dashlane icon and go to Properties. Then go to the Compatibility tab and make sure you uncheck Run this program in compatibility mode for and click on Apply. You might also need to make sure that none of the options in Settings or Privilege Level are checked either. Then restart your computer and launch Dashlane again.
