Follow these five steps to join a Starter, Team, or Business plan and start using Dashlane.
Step 1: Accept your invitation to join a plan
You’ll receive an invitation from your plan’s admin to join a Dashlane Starter, Team, or Business plan. In that email, select Get started and accept the invitation. Follow the prompts to create an account or join the plan with your existing Dashlane account.
Step 2: Install the Dashlane browser extension
The Dashlane browser extension is how you use Dashlane on your computer.
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.
If your admin has enabled account recovery for your plan, we recommend that you select Activate Account Recovery when prompted.
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.
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.
Step 4: Add your passwords and data to Dashlane
Dashlane automatically prompts you to save your usernames and passwords—known as logins—as you browse the internet. To start saving your logins to Dashlane, log in to any website and select Save in the Dashlane pop-up that appears.
Step 5: Improve your Password Health
View and improve the security of your passwords. Open the web app from the extension pop-up and, from the Security Tools section, open your Password Health page.
If a password is compromised, reused, or weak, we recommend that you change it to a new, secure password, generated by Dashlane. When you log in with your new password, select Replace in the Dashlane pop-up that appears.
