On Android, Dashlane can autofill the two-factor authentication codes you receive by SMS when logging in to other applications.
How it works
Your online accounts are already protected by a password. Two-factor authentication, or "2FA," is an additional layer of security proposed by many online accounts—some websites even require it. With 2FA, when you create or log in to an account, you are asked to enter a one-time code that's sent to you, either by SMS, or else provided by an authenticator app on your mobile device.
Receiving the code by SMS can be inconvenient. You may have to wait to receive the SMS, then open your text messaging app, copy or remember the one-time code, then type or paste the code into the service you're trying to use.
So to make this process faster and easier, Dashlane retrieves and autofills the code for you.
In order to be able to use this feature you need to have Android 8.0 or higher and ensure autofill is enabled on your mobile device.
Importantly, Dashlane cannot and does not read your text messages. The feature leverages the Google Play Services app, installed by default on all Android devices. This service can detect and retrieve 2FA codes within SMS messages. When a code has been detected, Google Play Services passes that code—and only that code—to your Dashlane app so that it can use it to autofill the code for you.
How to use it
The first time you create a new account, or log into an account that requires 2FA on your Android device, you’ll see a small popup asking if you want Dashlane to do the work for you.
At this point, your device's OS will require your authorization for Dashlane to retrieve the code. Please note that if you decline the authorization, you will not be prompted to autofill SMS codes by Dashlane anymore. If you declined the authorization by mistake, you can also activate the feature in the Settings of your Android device by going to Google, then Verification Code Autofill and enabling the feature there.
Once you have clicked on the form box shown above, Dashlane will retrieve the one-time code from SMS.
Clicking Autofill will then fill the code automatically.
And you're all set!
