This guide has everything you need to deploy Dashlane to your organization in phases. You'll learn how to access the Admin Console, roll out Dashlane to your plan members, update your password policy, and more.
If you haven't chosen or purchased a plan yet, these resources can help:
- Learn about Dashlane for businesses
- Sign up for a Starter or Business plan
- Compare the features of different plans
- See plan pricing
- Sign up for a Starter or Business plan free trial
- Request a demo with our sales team
Dashlane no longer sells Team plans. If you already have a Team plan, you can keep and continue to renew your plan. If you have a Starter plan, you can upgrade to a Team plan.
After you purchase a plan, you can log in and complete the Get started setup, where you see Welcome to your Dashlane vault!
Phase 1: Technical configuration for authentication and provisioning
In this phase, you'll take care of the technical setup for Dashlane so that you're fully prepared for the date when you roll it out to your organization.
Dashlane Business plan setup
If you're the admin of a Dashlane Business plan, you can integrate Dashlane with any SAML 2.0 Identity Provider (IdP)—such as Azure, Okta, or Google Workspace—so that members can authenticate with single sign-on (SSO) and then provision users with SCIM.
Dashlane Starter or Team plan setup
If you're an admin on a Starter or Team plan or don't want to use SSO and SCIM, you can invite and provision members with Active Directory (AD) or manually through the Dashlane Admin Console. You can also manage members using sharing groups in the Dashlane Admin Console.
Phase 2: Deploy the Dashlane browser extension
Installing the Dashlane browser extension is a critical part of using Dashlane. Plan members will be prompted to install the extension when they onboard. You can also mass deploy the Dashlane browser extension with GPO, Intune, or Jamf. Your choice for mass deployment depends on the operating system you’re using and the browsers that you want to deploy to.
More about mass deployment for the Dashlane browser extension
Mass deploy with Mac using Jamf
If you’re deploying with Mac, you can use Jamf to deploy to Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
Tip: If you use Jamf to deploy to Chrome, you can further customize the mass deployment to give your members a more tailored experience. You can stop the Dashlane account-creation window from appearing when you deploy, customize the account creation screen with your organization’s name, and disable Chrome’s built-in password manager.
Mass deploy with Windows using GPO or Intune
If you’re deploying with Windows, you can use GPO or Intune to deploy to Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox.
Phase 3: Prepare your organization for onboarding
To prepare your organization for onboarding, we recommend you complete these steps.
Send a message to your members
When you deploy, members receive an email that leads them through prompts and onboards them to Dashlane. We recommend you also send them an email or message in advance to prepare them, which can include these links.
Create a password policy
We recommend you update or create your organization's password policy. You can use this template as a guide.
Password policy template
Dashlane is a secure and convenient enterprise password management solution. Avoid using alternative password managers (also known as password keepers), including saving passwords in your internet browser.
Use Dashlane's Password Generator to create unique, strong passwords for all online accounts.
Keep your Dashlane Password Health score above 90%.
Don't reuse personal passwords for business purposes or the same corporate password for multiple business accounts. Use Dashlane to identify which passwords you are reusing.
Securely and conveniently share passwords with colleagues using Dashlane and no other method.
Refrain from writing passwords down on paper or saving them in a document on your computer.
If you receive a Dark Web Monitoring or breach alert, change the password of the impacted accounts as soon as possible. Time matters. Time can mean the difference between staying safe or being hacked. Think about what you would do if you lost your credit card.
Add 2-factor authentication (2FA) for all critical accounts. Dashlane makes it easy for you to find out which of your saved logins offer 2FA.
You can take a look at these policy resources.
Phase 4: Roll out Dashlane to your organization
To roll out Dashlane to your organization, use the configuration you set up in Phase 1.
If you need to add more seats to your plan before you can add new members, you can add them in the Account tab of the Admin Console or while inviting new members.
Phase 5: Post-deployment
After you've deployed Dashlane, we recommend you complete these steps to get the most out of Dashlane and your admin role.
Follow up on pending invitations
Follow up with any members who still need to accept their invitation to join Dashlane by resending the invite email or link.
Track your Password Health score
Every month, check your plan's Password Health score. Reach out to plan members with a low score and encourage them to take action.
