Step 2: Install the Dashlane browser extension
The Dashlane browser extension is how you use Dashlane on your computer.
Install the Dashlane browser extension in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Safari
After installation, select Extensions, shown as a puzzle icon, in your browser's toolbar, and then select Pin, shown as a pin icon. Select your newly pinned extension pop-up, shown as a D in your browser's toolbar, for quick access to many of Dashlane's features. Select Open the web app from the pop-up to access more features and control your account settings.
During your first few logins, you'll be prompted to turn on admin-assisted recovery. We recommend turning it on. Admin-assisted recovery can help you and your admin recover your account if you forget your Master Password. You can also turn it on from your settings.

Step 3: Turn off other password managers
To get the best experience with Dashlane, we recommend that you turn off any other password managers in your browser. Turn off password saving and autofill in these browsers:
Google Chrome | Mozilla Firefox | Microsoft Edge | Safari | iCloud Keychain
Tip: Worried you might forget your Master Password? Download and log in to the Dashlane mobile app. Then you'll have access to Master Password reset so you can always regain access to your account with biometrics, like your fingerprint or face.

You can also import from another password manager or CSV file
Or add passwords and login details manually
