3. Save your logins to Dashlane: After logging in, you can start saving your logins to Dashlane. As you browse the web and log in to different websites, Dashlane will automatically detect login forms and ask if you want to store your login information. When prompted, click on the “Save” button to save the login to your Dashlane vault.

4. Access your logins: Once you have saved your logins to Dashlane, you can easily access them whenever you need to log in to a website. Simply click on the Dashlane icon in your browser toolbar and select the login you want to use. Dashlane will automatically fill in your login credentials, saving you time and effort.

5. Generate and store secure passwords: Dashlane also offers a password generator feature, which allows you to create strong and unique passwords for your accounts. When creating a new account or changing your password, you can use the Dashlane password generator to generate a strong password and save it to your Dashlane vault.

6. Autofill forms: Dashlane can also help you save time by autofilling forms with your personal information. When filling out online forms, Dashlane will detect the fields and offer to fill them in with your saved information. This can be particularly useful for things like address fields, credit card information, and more.

7. Sync across devices: If you have Dashlane installed on multiple devices, such as your smartphone or tablet, you can sync your logins and other data across all your devices. This ensures that your passwords and other information are always available to you, no matter which device you are using.
