Gone are the days when iris scanning only existed in sci-fi movies. That technology is already here—and might even be in the palm of your hand. From airport kiosks to mobile devices, biometric functionalities are becoming more and more common.

At Dashlane, we’re committed to helping you manage your life online with the most secure, cutting-edge technology available. And now, that includes using iris and facial biometrics, in addition to using your fingerprint, to log in to the Dashlane app on your Android device.

Your whole Dashlane account, at your fingertips—or, should we say, fingerprints.

Why use biometrics?

You are the only you there is. That’s why biometrics are such a secure way to log in to accounts. Using fingerprint, iris, or facial recognition, we can authenticate that you are really you.

Biometrics are not only safe, but also simple. Once you’ve enabled biometrics on your Android device, you can conveniently log in to Dashlane without typing in your Master Password. Access all your passwords, files, and secure data within seconds.

How does Dashlane use my biometric data?

We don’t. Just like Dashlane doesn’t store your Master Password, we don’t store your biometric data either—and we never will.

Dashlane uses zero-knowledge architecture to keep your information safe. Everything in your account is encrypted behind your Master Password, so your data can only be accessed locally once you’ve logged into your Dashlane account on your device.

What now?

If you have a device that supports biometrics, such as the Samsung S9, S9+, S10, S10+, now’s the time to set it up. Fingerprint recognition will be the default method until you update your device settings. Please note, the biometric method you can use depends on your device’s capabilities.

You’ll still need your Master Password for logging in to certain sites or accessing your Dashlane account from other devices, so we’ll ask you to enter it from time to time to make sure you don’t forget it.

Our biometrics integration is just one way that Dashlane is helping you live a safer, simpler life online.
