Data and backups

Move your data from LastPass to 1Password

You can transfer your Sites and Secure Notes from LastPass into 1Password on 1Password.com.

1Password can import your Sites and Secure Notes from LastPass. When you import from LastPass:

  • Your LastPass sites will be converted into 1Password logins.
  • Secure Notes become different items depending on their type, like Bank Account, Driver License, or Secure Note.

LastPass doesn’t export Form Fill Profiles, so 1Password can’t import them.

Step 1: Export your data from LastPass

When you export from LastPass, you’ll copy your unencrypted LastPass data to the Clipboard. To keep your data safe, quit any apps that keep track of text you copy, like a Clipboard manager.

Important

LastPass exports data incorrectly in the browser extension and in Firefox. To export your data from LastPass:

  • Use the LastPass.com website. Do not use the browser extension.
  • Use Chrome, Opera or Safari. Do not use Firefox.

To export your data from LastPass:

  1. Sign in to your account on LastPass.com.
  2. Click More Options.
  3. Choose Advanced > Export, and enter your username and password if asked. You’ll see a text field with your LastPass data.
  4. Copy the contents of the field: right-click (or Control-click) in the text field and choose Select All, then choose Edit > Copy.

Step 2: Import your data into 1Password

To import your data on 1Password.com:

  1. Sign in to your account on 1Password.com.
  2. Click your account name in the top right and choose Import.
  3. Click LastPass.
  4. Choose the vault you want to import your data into. If you’re importing personal data, choose the Personal or Private vault.
  5. Paste into the field: right-click (or Control-click) in the text field and click Paste.

Paste data in the text field

If you see an “Original Values” section in an imported item

LastPass will export some characters as HTML entities:

  • if you use the LastPass browser extension to export your data instead of LastPass.com
  • if you use Firefox to export your data, even if you use the LastPass.com website

An HTML entity is a group of characters that begins with an ampersand (&) and ends with a semicolon (;). They’re used in HTML to display characters that would otherwise be interpreted as HTML code. For example, &lt; is four characters, but that HTML entity represents the single character < (less than).

1Password imports HTML entities as the characters they were intended to represent (<), but the original values (&lt;) are also included in each item in the “Original Values” section.
