Business accounts introduce the concept of Spaces to allow you to conveniently and clearly separate the passwords you use at work, and the passwords you use elsewhere.
How can I get Spaces
In order for your Dashlane app to have Spaces, you must be a part of a business plan. Once you have been added to a business plan, Spaces should be available for you automatically in Dashlane. If they do not show, please log out then log back in to your Dashlane account.

What are Spaces?
Spaces are an extra layer of filtering made available to you in your Dashlane account. Once unlocked, you will always have three spaces in your account: All Spaces, Personal, and a third one taking the name of the business account you are a part of — we'll call it business space for the sake of this article. The name of the other two spaces, as well as their in-app color, cannot yet be customized. At the moment, as you can only be a part of one business plan, you will not be able to have access to more than these three spaces.
Depending on the space you choose to display, only a portion of your Dashlane data will show in the app. You get to assign every single piece of information stored in your Dashlane account to a particular space — from passwords to payments, Secure Notes, and IDs. Assign your work passwords and notes to your business space, while pairing your personal phone number, Facebook or Spotify passwords to your personal space. Then you may switch at all times between personal and business spaces, and you will see all sections of your Dashlane app display nothing else but the content you chose to add there. With Spaces, keep your work information at work, and your personal information at home!
An important thing to know about spaces is that they are your own and personal filtering tool. While spaces are only available to users who are a part of a business plan, you do have the option of choosing which data you associate with each space. However, if your company's admin has activated the Smart Space Management feature, all data associated with the company's domain(s) will be categorized under the business space. Also, if the setting to remove company items for revoked users has been enabled by the admin, this means that if you leave or are revoked from the plan, you will lose access to your business space (and to all Spaces, for that matter), and you will lose the data that has been associated with this business space. The rest of your data will still be available to you in Dashlane, without the space filtering.

Keep in mind that your Categories will be available across spaces, allowing you to have two levels of filtering and organization for your passwords and notes. In practice, this means that you can have a Social media category across spaces, under which your personal Twitter account will only appear in your personal space, while your professional Facebook account only in your business space.
Should you absolutely want all your Dashlane data to appear altogether, simply choose All Spaces.
Where can I find Spaces?
Once unlocked, Spaces can be found very simply at the top left corner of your Dashlane desktop and web app, just below the search bar.
The space you are currently selecting will show there. Click on it to display all other available spaces. Alternatively, you can use the following shortcuts to navigate between spaces:
- CTRL + 1 for All Spaces
- CTRL + 2 for your personal space
- CTRL + 3 for your business space
