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.

Dashlane autofills your login details and manages your data when browsing the web.

How Autofill works
What do the different Dashlane D icon colors mean for Autofill?
Dashlane displays small versions of our company logo whenever a field on a website can be autofilled or saved. The color of the Dashlane D shows what your next step is. A dark green D icon means Dashlane has the information, and a gray D icon means Dashlane doesn't yet have this information.
A gray Dashlane D
A gray D icon means we've detected the field but don't see the appropriate data in your Dashlane account to autofill the field. You can select the gray D icon to add a login to your vault. You can also select the 3-dot menu in the pop-up to autofill something else.
If you have an existing account on this website and want Dashlane to remember your login details, enter your username and password and log in. Dashlane asks if you want to save this data as a new login. Then the login can be autofilled the next time you want to log in to this website.
A dark green Dashlane D
A dark green D icon means we've detected a field and have data stored in your Dashlane account to autofill the field. Click in one of the login fields and choose the item you want to use. You can also select the magnifying glass icon at the top of the list to search for a different item in your vault.
For a login form, Dashlane can log you in automatically.
For a registration form, Dashlane can autofill with the data you've saved in Dashlane.
If the field is for a password field to register on a website or change your password, click in the field and select the button to generate a new password. Dashlane generates and confirms the new password.
Both a gray and a green Dashlane D
As we mentioned earlier, a dark green D icon means Dashlane has the information, and a gray D icon means Dashlane doesn't yet have this information.
If Dashlane can autofill your username or email but shows a gray D icon for your password, select one of your usernames or email addresses in the first field. Then provide your password manually in the second field and log in. Dashlane asks if you want to save this account. You can also select the gray D icon and add a login or autofill something else.
Does Dashlane support passkeys?
Yes. Dashlane customers can now use passkeys instead of passwords to log in to compatible sites and apps. This feature is in the beta phase. That means we're still testing the extension for possible problems and bugs.
If you log in to a website that uses passkeys while logged in to the latest version of the Dashlane extension, we'll ask you if you want to register and save a passkey. When you go back to a website with a passkey saved in Dashlane, we'll ask you if you want to log in using the passkey.
Can Dashlane autofill Basic and Digest HTTPS authentication pop-ups?
Yes. Dashlane can log you into your accounts using HTTPS Basic and Digest Authentication. After you save the login in Dashlane, Dashlane logs you in automatically whenever you visit the website.
This works best with only one login saved per website and is currently available only in Chrome and Firefox for secured websites—https not http. We thank you for your patience as we work to bring this feature to our extension in other browsers as well.
I don't want to use Autofill. Can I still save my logins in Dashlane?
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 certain types of information. You can still access all your logins and data in your vault. When you want to use any of your logins, open Dashlane, copy the information, and paste it into the website fields.
The copy and paste pop-ups for entering vault information without Autofill are unavailable with the Safari extension due to a limitation on Safari’s side. Instead, you can use the right-click menu to autofill your username, password, payment info, or other data stored in your vault, in any field.
Troubleshooting other Autofill issues
Dashlane isn't working on a specific website. What can I do?
We do our best to handle all websites. But sometimes, the way a website is built means Dashlane may not be able to log you in automatically or save your login details. You can learn more about what's happening and what you can do.
