1. Web extension
If you’re copying and pasting credentials from the Dashlane app into websites, it’s time to get the Dashlane web extension.
The extension enables Dashlane to instantly log you in to websites or to create and save new credentials in just a click. The internet has never been so fast—or so secure.
If you haven’t done so yet, get the extension by following the instructions in this help center article on using Dashlane in your browser.
2. Password Generator
Having a unique password for every account is the first line of defense online, but it’s hard to do and even harder to keep track of on your own. Dashlane’s Password Generator makes creating secure, complex passwords simple. You can find it in right in your web extension in the tab labeled Generator. The Password Generator instantly creates strong, unique passwords for each account. Adapt the settings by selecting the length and what random mixture of digits, letters, and symbols to include.
Dashlane’s Password Generator even tells you how safe your passwords are for ultimate peace of mind.
