Data and backups

Move your passwords from Firefox to 1Password

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

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

  • Your Firefox passwords will be converted into 1Password logins.
  • Only passwords will be imported. Credit cards, addresses, and other items will not be imported.

Firefox import is only available on 1Password.com and requires a 1Password account.

Step 1: Export your data from Firefox

Before you export your data from Firefox, temporarily turn off any backup software you may be using, so the unencrypted export file isn’t backed up. Then follow these steps on your computer:

  1. Click the Firefox menu   in the toolbar and choose Passwords.
  2. Click   in the top right and select Export Logins.
  3. Click Export, and enter the password you use to log in to your computer if asked.
  4. Save the file to your desktop.

Step 2: Import your data into 1Password

To import your data on 1Password.com:

  1. In Firefox or another browser, sign in to your account on 1Password.com.
  2. Click your name in the top right and choose Import.
  3. Click Firefox.
  4. Choose the vault you want to import your data into. If you’re importing personal data, choose the Personal or Private vault.
  5. Click inside the dotted rectangle and select the CSV file you saved to your desktop earlier.
  6. Click Import.

If you have any credit cards, bank accounts, addresses, or other items saved in Firefox, copy them manually into 1Password. Open 1Password on your desktop 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 Firefox

To prevent Firefox from interfering with 1Password, turn off the built-in password manager in Firefox.

Step 4: Delete your passwords from Firefox

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

Important

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

To delete all your passwords at once:

  1. Click the Firefox menu   in the toolbar and choose Passwords.
  2. Click   in the top right and select Remove All Logins.
  3. Select “Yes, remove these logins”.
  4. Click Remove All.

To delete your passwords individually:

  1. Click the Firefox menu   in the toolbar and choose Passwords.
  2. Select a password you want to delete.
  3. Click   Remove.
