Today is a big day for Microsoft as they started to rollout their new Microsoft Edge Chromium-based web browser. It’s a fantastic product: It’s fast, reliable, safe and it’s compatible with (almost) all extensions you already know from Google Chrome. However, it doesn’t work together with Dashlane out of the box. Here is a tutorial how to make them work together.
A new version of Dashlane is available through the transition to a fully-featured web app based on an extension for your web browser. Therefore, this article isn’t a best practice anymore. Instead, install the official Dashlane extensions.
As Dashlane is of the most advanced and amazing password managers out there and the Microsoft Edge Chromium-based web browser is an outstanding product as well, you might think about using them together. Well, they don’t work together without a workaround. Our goal is to access the passwords directly from within the Dashlane extension in Microsoft Edge as soon as we login into the Dashlane application installed on your Windows PC:
To achieve this, please follow the tutorial below:
I've used Dashlane password manager for years with no problems. Suddenly this afternoon when I enter my master password for Dashlane, it says it isn't the correct password. I've used it a dozen times a day. All of my devices that are synced with Dashlane have the same problem. I'm doomed unless someone has a solution. I have an extension called Dashlane where all of my passwords are stored. It stopped working the other day. I looked for a fix, and it told me to remove the old extension from FF and then just add a new updated version of Dashlane. I can’t seem to get Dashlane to show up anywhere in my FF addons in order to enable it. How can I get Dashlane back on my FF browser. I don’t want to have to.
#1 Installing Microsoft Edge Chromium
First, please install the latest version of the new Microsoft Edge. You can get it or update it either from Windows Update or download it from here:
#2 Installing Dashlane Extension
After the installation, please install the official Dashlane extension from the Chrome Web Store (make sure to allow that in the Microsoft Edge settings): Latest 2014software on a disc.
#3 Configuring the Dashlane Extension
Having installed the extension, navigate to the extension’s settings by performing a right-click on the icon.
Now, choose Desktop as we want out Dashlane desktop application to be connected to the Dashlane extension for Microsoft Edge. Then, restart the extension by clicking on Save and restart extension.
#4 Configuring the Dashlane Application
As a next step, we have to configure the Dashlane application in order to work together with the new Microsoft Edge. As the browser is so new, we have to deactivate the web browser signature verification which can be found in the settings:
Please keep in mind: This is not an officially recommended way by Dashlane as it lowers the security. However, it’s currently the only way of working with both Dashlane and the new Microsoft Edge.
Having done that, a window should popup asking you to authenticate both the Dashlane application as well as the Dashlane extension for Microsoft Edge. Confirm both messages and here you go.
That’s it. Enjoy your new Microsoft Edge Chromium-based web browser together with the best password manager out there!
Dashlane App Not Working
As account security has become more important, having a good cross-platform password manager has become almost essential. Unfortunately, one of the more popular password managers, Dashlane, has had its extension removed from the Chrome Web Store due to privacy and permissions issues.
Dashlane App Won't Open Mac
Spotted by Techdows, one of the engineers responsible for the Dashlane password manager has publicly posted an attempt to get in contact with Google. In the post, it’s explained that, on Friday, Dashlane received a warning from the Chrome Web Store stating that the extension had a week to either cutback or explain the permissions it asks for.
To comply with the request, Dashlane submitted a “permission justification form,” spelling out how the extension works and why it needs so many permissions to do the job, along with a new version of Dashlane. The next day, Dashlane was removed from the Chrome Web Store altogether, with the extension’s listing currently leading to a 404 error.
Thankfully, removing Dashlane from the Chrome Web Store does not take away the still-functioning extension from anyone who has already installed it. That said, there’s no way for Dashlane to gain new customers on Chrome or for existing customers to switch to a new computer. So far, Google has not publicly responded to Dashlane, leaving the company in a state of limbo.
In the meantime, while this gets hashed out, Dashlane’s web and mobile apps still work just great, as well as their extensions for other browsers like Safari, Firefox, and even one for the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge.
Update 9:25am: It now appears that Dashlane has been reinstated into the Chrome Web Store.
