Data and backups

Move your data from SplashID to 1Password

You can transfer your passwords and other information from SplashID into 1Password on your Mac.

To export your data from SplashID on a Mac, you’ll need SplashID 8.0.4.899 or earlier. Later versions of SplashID 8 can only save encrypted data, which is impossible for other apps to import, including 1Password.

Step 1: Export your data from SplashID

Before you export your data from SplashID, 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 and unlock SplashID.
  2. From the File menu (Mac) or app menu (Windows), choose Export > SplashID vID.

    • Don’t select Export Attachments.
    • Don’t set a password.
    • Choose No if you’re asked to Send Mail.
  3. Name the file pm_export.vid and save it to your desktop.

Step 2: Import your data into 1Password

To import your data in 1Password for Mac, open and unlock 1Password, choose File > Import, and follow the onscreen instructions.

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

Next steps

  • Uninstall SplashID to avoid conflicts with 1Password.
  • Get the 1Password extension to save and fill passwords on the web.
