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.
  • Form Fills and documents will not be imported.

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.
