The web app and extension are the versions of Dashlane you use in your computer browser.
With the Dashlane web app and extension, you can manage your online life safely and easily. You can store and manage logins and other data and then autofill that info anywhere on the web.
You can access Dashlane directly in the extension pop-up or open the full web app for more features.

Manage Autofill from the extension
If you want to use Dashlane on Safari, we recommend that you install the Dashlane Safari extension. You'll have access to more of Dashlane's features and tools without needing to open the separate Dashlane macOS app. The Safari extension has our feature-rich extension pop-up and in-browser vault view, as well as the best Autofill capabilities that Dashlane has to offer.
Get started with the Dashlane Safari extension
If Dashlane behaves in a way you don't expect or you don't want Dashlane to display the autofill menu with your data, you can turn off Autofill for the entire website.
If you turn off Autofill for the entire website, Autofill won't work on any website page for that particular website.
From the Autofill Global Preferences, you can also turn off Autofill for all logins, all forms, or specific types of vault items like names, emails, addresses, and payments. Turning off Autofill affects all the websites you visit. You can turn on Autofill again anytime.
You can also turn off Dashlane auto-login for all websites, and Dashlane won’t automatically log you into any logins in your vault. You can turn on auto-login again anytime.
Explore the Dashlane web app
The web app has many of the same features as the extension. Additionally, you can use bulk delete, which deletes multiple logins simultaneously. You can manage your subscription and account settings, and use collections to organize your logins in your vault.
We also recommend that you set up the account recovery options available to you. Then if you forget your Master Password, you can gain access again and reset your Master Password.

Add your profile picture in the web app
In the My account menu of the web app, you may see an icon with two letters from your name. This icon is your profile picture or “avatar.” With gravatar.com, you can upload a photo or image to appear instead. You can add a profile picture with any Dashlane plan.
When you go to gravatar.com, you’re asked to create an account or log in to WordPress.com. Gravatar and other services use WordPress so that you can use the same login for several services.
Note: Make sure you use the same email address you use to log in to Dashlane to create your Gravatar account. If you see a profile picture, you already have a WordPress account with a profile picture.
After you’ve created or logged in to your account, you can add or change your profile picture on the Manage Gravatars page. Your new profile picture appears in Dashlane after a few minutes.
