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.
  • Folders will be converted to tags.
  • Form Fills and documents will not be imported.

Step 1: Export your data from LastPass

Before you export your data from LastPass, 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 your browser and sign in to your account on LastPass.com.
  2. Click Advanced Options in the sidebar, then choose Export. LastPass will send you an email.
  3. In the email you received from LastPass, click “Continue export”.
  4. Return to your account on LastPass.com.
  5. Click Advanced Options, choose Export, and enter your LastPass password.

The CSV file will be saved to your computer.

Step 2: Import your data into 1Password

To import your data on 1Password.com:

  1. Open your browser and sign in to your account on 1Password.com.
  2. Click your 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.

    To only import personal items, turn off “Import items in shared folders”.

  5. Click inside the dotted rectangle to open a file browser. Browse to your downloads folder and select the CSV file you created earlier.
  6. Click Import.

Click “Take me to my imported items”, and you’ll see all your imported items. If you want to change anything about the import, like importing the data into a different vault, click Undo Import and start again.

If some of your items are missing

  4. Sign in to your account on 1Password.com.
  5. Click your name in the top right and choose Import, then click LastPass.
  6. Choose the vault you want to import your data into. If you’re importing personal data, choose the Personal or Private vault.

    To only import personal items, turn off “Import items in shared folders”.

  7. Paste your LastPass data: right-click (or Control-click) in the text field and choose Paste.

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

LastPass may export some characters as HTML entities.

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.
