To export your data from KeePassXC, you’ll need the KeePassXC app for Mac, Windows, or Linux.

Step 1: Export your data from KeePassXC


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

  2. Choose Database > Export > CSV File. Learn more about exporting databases.
  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.
