Learn how to transfer your Logins, Credit Cards, and Secure Notes from other applications into your account on


If you’re using Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Dashlane, LastPass, RoboForm, or Thycotic Secret Server, there’s an easier way to import your data.

Many applications provide the option to export data using the comma-separated values (CSV) file format. To learn how to export to a CSV file, check the documentation for your app.


Before you export your data from your old password manager, temporarily turn off any backup software you may be using, so the unencrypted export file isn’t backed up.

Step 1: Prepare your CSV file

Before you import a CSV file into 1Password, make sure the data is formatted and organized correctly by opening the file in a text editor, like TextEdit on a Mac or Notepad on a Windows PC, and following these guidelines:

  • Each line in the CSV file should contain a login, credit card, or secure note, including any required fields:
    • For each login, a username, password, and website field is required.
    • For each credit card, a credit card number and expiry date field is required.
    • For each secure note, a title field is required.
  • Each line that contains a specific type of item must have fields in a consistent order. For example, each line containing a login should have usernames, passwords, and websites in the same order.
  • Each line must have the same number of fields, even if they’re left empty.
  • If a value contains a line break or comma (including within passwords), enclose it in quotation marks.

For example, here’s what a CSV file may look like with two logins, a credit card, and a secure note:

Debit Card,1234567898765432,08/24,123,Wendy Appleseed
Super Secret Journal,"This is an entry in my super secret journal, and no one else should read it."

Step 2: Upload your CSV file

  1. Open your browser and sign in to your account on
  2. Click your name in the top right and choose Import.
  3. Click CSV File and follow the onscreen instructions.

When you’re asked to confirm your item types, continue to the next step.

Step 3: Choose an item type

Choose an item type for every row in the table.

To make sure your items are formatted correctly, choose an item type for each row. To omit a row from the import, choose Ignore Row. Then click Continue.

Step 4: Organize your information

Add a label to the table columns for each item type.

Label the information for each item type you chose:

  1. Click Add Label, then choose a label for at least one column.
    • To create a label, click New Label.
    • To leave the information unorganized, skip the label.
    • To omit the information from the import, choose Ignore Column.
  2. When you’re finished, click Continue, then click View imported items.

If you want to change anything about the import, like importing the data into a different vault, click Undo Import and start again.


After you’ve imported your information into 1Password, delete the unencrypted CSV file, then turn on any backup software you turned off earlier.
