How to add shopping accounts for automatic logins
Adding online accounts to Dashlane is simple, and adding shopping accounts is no different.
Signing up for a new account? Dashlane will autofill your email address and generate a strong password for that account. When you sign in, you’ll be asked to save the password to Dashlane. Once saved, you’ll never have to type that password again!
Logging into an existing account? If the account is saved in Dashlane, Dashlane will autofill your email and password combo for a stress-free login experience. If the account isn’t already saved in Dashlane, login as you normally would and Dashlane will prompt you to save the email and password combo for future use.
How to add personal information for instant checkouts
The most time-consuming part of buying things online—other than actually finding something worth buying—is painstakingly filling out all of the personal information required for shipping and billing during checkout. Dashlane securely stores personal information like your name, email addresses, phone numbers, and street addresses to autofill forms. You can add as many profiles as you’d like, even the contact info, addresses, and phone numbers of family and friends.
Not sure if your personal information is stored in Dashlane? You can add these details by navigating to the Personal Info section on the left side of your Dashlane desktop app, or inside the Vault tab on your Dashlane mobile app. Double check to make sure the information you add is accurate! The next time you get to a checkout page, a single tap will prompt Dashlane to autofill all your personal information instantly.
