As an admin of a Dashlane Starter, Team, or Business plan, you can review your organization’s security in the Admin Console. You can also see whether the overall password security of your plan members is increasing or decreasing over time.
When logged in to the Dashlane web app, plan members can see their Password Health score containing their safe, weak, reused, and compromised passwords.
Password Health in the Admin Console
At least one plan member other than an admin needs a minimum of five logins in their account. Then you can see the Users and Dashboard tabs in the Admin Console. Scoring data is available starting in May 2020.
Plan members’ Password Health scores are calculated locally on each member's device. Dashlane doesn’t have access to any login information. The individual scores are synced to Dashlane servers and made available to admins in the Admin Console, along with the overall Password Health score.

Important: Dashlane protects your members' privacy. If your plan has the Spaces feature, the Password Health score is calculated based on the logins in members' Personal and Business Spaces. However, it only reflects logins in members' Business Spaces. As an admin, you can't view any specific information about anything in members' Personal Spaces.

Users tab in the Admin Console
The Users tab displays these items:
- The number of open seats remaining for your plan and the number of total seats your organization has purchased for your plan
- The number of employees who haven’t yet accepted your invite to join Dashlane
- Your Company Password Health Score, which is the average of the individual Password Health scores of all plan members
- A list of active plan members along with their individual Password Health score and information about how many strong, weak, reused, and compromised passwords they have
Dashboard tab in the Admin Console
The Dashboard tab provides a dynamic Password Health Dashboard. Individual Password Health scores are used to calculate the overall, organization-wide score.
You can perform these actions in the Dashboard:
- Set best practices and improve your organization’s remote work security
- Encourage your members to improve their Password Health scores
- Track these changes to see which changes work
- Report to leadership on your organization's progress
To check the overall score for a specific day, hover over that date in the graph.
Admin tab in the extension pop-up
The Admin tab in the extension pop-up gives you a quick overview of your organization's Password Health score. It also displays your plan members' total passwords, as well as their total number of compromised, reused, and weak passwords.
How is the Password Health score calculated?
The Password Health score is calculated based on all passwords stored in Dashlane and whether they're Compromised, Reused, or Weak. These passwords are compared to the number of Safe passwords.
Manually Excluded logins aren't included in the Password Health score.
Some websites are considered more important than others, so they have more weight when Dashlane calculates the Password Health score.
Weak: A password is weak if it scores 0 or 1 by the ZXCVBN algorithm. Passwords are ranked by strength: 0 (weakest) to 4 (strongest). If a brute force attack can determine a password in fewer than 1 million guesses, the password is ranked with a 0 or a 1. A brute force attack is a hacking method that uses trial and error to determine passwords.
Reused: Dashlane considers a password reused if the password is used for more than one login, even if the passwords aren’t exactly the same. For example, if you use "QWERTY1" for a login and "QWERTY2" for another login, Dashlane considers the passwords reused.
Compromised: Dashlane scans the dark web for leaked personal data. We send instant security alerts when sites are breached, and passwords are compromised.
Safe: A safe password doesn't meet the criteria for being considered weak, reused, compromised, or excluded.
FAQ about Password Health scores in the Admin Console
How do duplicates of logins impact the Password Health score?
If Dashlane detects a password is used for more than one login, the passwords are marked as Reused. Reused passwords negatively impact the Password Health score.
Dashlane recommends using a different, strong password for each account.
If you use the same username and password for different services that share the same account, you can link them together.
Which passwords are excluded from the Password Health score?
Manually excluded logins aren’t included in the Password Health score. Admins can’t prevent plan members from excluding logins. Plan members can see a list of their excluded logins in the Excluded tab of the Password Health section.
Passwords not saved correctly aren’t included in the Password Health score. Sometimes, a password is saved in a Secure Note or the Notes field of a login instead of the Password field. Those passwords aren’t included in the Password Health score.
Why is the Password Health score a plan member sees not the same as the score in the Admin Console?
Some plans have the Spaces feature. If your plan has Spaces, each member can choose to show only data from their Personal Space, only data from the Business Space, or both combined. Their Password Health score reflects this choice.
When is the Password Health score updated in the Admin Console?
If a plan member adds logins or changes passwords, those changes are reflected immediately in their Password Health score. If the changes aren't syncing, select My account, Settings, and then Sync now. If that doesn't work, try logging out and then logging back into Dashlane.
What does “Last Activity” mean?
The Last Activity column shows the last time Dashlane servers logged an active session for a plan member's Dashlane account.
An active session is counted when a plan member logs in, even if the member makes no changes.
