You can use an alternative solution to autofill the data saved to your Dashlane account in the Safari browser with macOS's native autofill. This option only works to autofill login information and doesn't work to autofill other fields such as your address or name.
1. Confirm you have the latest version of the Safari app
We recommend that you always use the latest version of Dashlane compatible with your device. You want to make sure that you have all of the latest improvements and features and the most up-to-date security updates.
Check if you need to update to the new Dashlane Safari app:
- Open the Mac App Store.
- Select Updates to open the list of apps you need to update.
- For Dashlane, select Update. If Dashlane isn't listed, you have the latest version.
2. Turn on the extension in System Preferences
After you're sure you have the latest version of the app, configure the System Preferences on your macOS device:
- Select the Apple icon in the browser toolbar and then select System Preferences.
- Select the Extensions icon, shown as a puzzle piece.
- In the Extensions pop-up, select Password AutoFill and then select the Dashlane checkbox.
- A message appears with a confirmation that Dashlane Autofill is activated. Select Ok, got it.
3. Configure settings in Safari Preferences
Now that you've turned on Dashlane in System Preferences, the last step is to configure your Safari settings:
- In the Safari menu in the browser toolbar, select Preferences.
- In the pop-up, select AutoFill in the toolbar and then select the Usernames and passwords checkbox.
- In the same pop-up, select Extensions in the toolbar.
- Clear the checkbox for Dashlane, which disables Dashlane's default autofill mechanism, so no interference occurs.
You can now use autofill login information on any website.
Note: You still need to log in to the Dashlane Safari app for autofill to work.
