Data and backups

Move your data from LastPass to 1Password

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

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

  • Your LastPass sites will be converted into 1Password Login items.
  • Secure Notes become different items depending on their type, like Bank Accounts, Driver Licenses, or Secure Notes.
  • Other items, like SSH Key, Insurance Policy, or Instant Messenger Account, become Secure Notes.
  • Folders will be converted to tags.
  • Form Fills and documents won’t be imported.

Step 1: Export your data from LastPass

Important

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.

To export your data from LastPass, follow these steps on your computer:

  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, then click Show 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.

After you’ve imported your information into 1Password, delete the unencrypted CSV file, then turn on any backup software you turned off earlier.

If some shared folders are missing

If some shared folders from LastPass are missing, make sure you have access to all the shared folders you need before exporting them.

Learn how to grant users or groups permissions for shared folders.

Tip

Only your personal folder will be included in the LastPass export. Your family or team members can import their own personal folders.

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.
