Data and backups

Move your passwords from Edge to 1Password

You can transfer your passwords from Edge into 1Password on 1Password.com.

1Password can import your passwords from Edge. When you import from Edge:

  • Your Edge passwords will be converted into 1Password Login items.
  • Only passwords will be imported. Credit cards, addresses, and other information won’t be imported.

Step 1: Export your data from Edge

Important

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

To export your data from Edge, follow these steps on your computer:

  1. Click the Edge menu in the toolbar and choose Settings, then click Passwords.
  2. Click at the top right of the list of saved passwords and select Export Passwords.
  3. Click Export Passwords and enter the password you use to log in to your computer.
  4. Save the Microsoft Edge Passwords.csv file to your desktop.

Step 2: Import your data into 1Password

After you export your data from Edge, you can upload your CSV file on 1Password.com.

If you have any credit cards, addresses, or other information saved in Edge, copy them manually into 1Password. Open 1Password on your computer or mobile device and click the button to add items.

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

Step 3: Turn off the built-in password manager in Edge

To prevent Edge from interfering with 1Password, make sure you have the 1Password browser extension installed, then turn off the built-in password manager in Edge.

Step 4: Delete your passwords from Edge

Edge will continue to fill saved passwords even after you turn off the built-in password manager. To fill your passwords with 1Password instead of Edge, delete your saved passwords from Edge.

Important

Following these steps will permanently delete your passwords from Edge, and you won’t be able to recover them. Make sure all your passwords from Edge are saved in 1Password before you delete them.

To delete all your passwords at once:

  1. Click the Edge menu in the toolbar and choose Settings, then click Passwords.
  2. Click at the top left of the list of saved passwords, then select Delete.

To delete your passwords individually:

  1. Click the Edge menu in the toolbar and choose Settings, then click Passwords.
  2. Click beside each saved password you want to delete, then select Delete.
