Move your data from KeePassX to 1Password

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

1Password can import your passwords from KeePassX. When you import from KeePassX, your passwords will be converted into 1Password logins.

Exporting passwords from KeePassX requires version 2.0 or later. KeePassX import is only available on 1Password.com and requires a 1Password account.

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

  1. Open KeePassX and unlock your database.
  2. Choose Database > Export to CSV File.
  3. Enter a file name and set the location to your desktop.
  4. Click Save.

If you have multiple databases, repeat these steps for each database.
