A domain is the identification string that is used to name a location on the Internet. For example, our domain is dashlane.com. A subdomain is a domain that is part of a larger domain. Its name will be added before the main domain name. For example, you are currently reading a page which is located on our subdomain support.dashlane.com.
Dashlane allows you to assign passwords to specific subdomains and make sure they are kept separate, for instance if you have different accounts on bugzilla.mozilla.com and addons.mozilla.com.
How to set up subdomains in Dashlane
You can configure Dashlane to use the right credential among all of your credentials that share the same domain. For instance, if you have saved a credential for user.dashlane.com and for support.dashlane.com, by default Dashlane will propose both of these when you sign in to user.dashlane.com. Activating the following setup will insure that Dashlane only prompts the right credential on the right subdomain:
- Open a credential
- Make sure the website address field is correct and contains the subdomain
- Click on More options at the bottom of the window
- Enable For this subdomain only
Note: Also, note that Dashlane currently only supports one level of subdomain. For example, support.dashlane.com is only one level of subdomain. For now, two or more levels of subdomains, such as user.support.dashlane.com, are not supported.
Does Dashlane have equivalent domains?
Currently, Dashlane does not support equivalent domains.
For instance, if you have an account on Amazon and use this account on amazon.com, amazon.ca, and amazon.au, the amazon.com credential saved in your Dashlane application will not be auto filled on amazon.ca or amazon.au. You will need to create separate credentials in Dashlane for each domain in order for Dashlane to autofill your information on these pages, even though you use the same Amazon account across all Amazon domains.
Another example: If you have access to multiple websites that share a single password due to Active Directory, then you will need to create separate credentials in your Dashlane application for each of these websites. This will ensure proper autofill and auto-login, in the right place and the right time.
Remember that if the password is changed for these websites, you will need to update each credential.
