Move your data from other applications to 1Password

You can transfer your passwords and other information from other applications into 1Password on your Mac or Windows PC.

Important

Before exporting your data from your old password manager, disable all automatic backup software, so the unencrypted export files are not backed up. After you’ve finished importing the information into 1Password and deleted the unencrypted export files, don’t forget to turn your automatic backups back on.

You can import from Chrome, Dashlane, LastPass, SplashID, and RoboForm. Learn more about how to import data from:

If you can’t use the built-in importers

If the built-in import options don’t work for you, or your application isn’t supported by them, try using the community-created 1Password utilities.

Set up the utilities and convert your data

  1. Download the 1Password utilities.
  2. Open onepassword-utilities-master.zip and drag the convert_to_1p4 folder to your desktop. For the instructions to work, the folder must be placed on your desktop.
  3. Follow the instructions in README.pdf to use the script called convert_to_1p4.pl.
  4. By default, a file named 1P_import.1pif will be created on your desktop (in the native 1PIF import format for 1Password).

Import your converted data into 1Password

  1. Open and unlock 1Password.
  2. From the File menu, choose Import.
  3. Click Other on the import screen.
  4. Click “Import a 1PIF File” and follow the onscreen instructions to import your data.

1Password 6

  1. Open and unlock 1Password.
  2. Choose 1Password > Import and click 1Password Interchange Format.
  3. Select the vault where you’d like to import your data, and click Select the 1PIF File.
  4. Select the 1P_import.1pif file on your desktop and click Open.

1Password 4

  1. Open and unlock 1Password.
  2. Choose File > Import, select the 1P_import.1pif file, and click Open.
  3. Click “Yes to All” on the import confirmation dialog.
  4. Click “No to All” if asked to replace existing items with the same name.

Advanced: Import your CSV data into 1Password

If your application is not listed above, you may still be able to import your data into 1Password using the comma-separated values (CSV) file format. Many applications are capable of exporting to CSV including 1Password. Refer to the documentation of your particular software to learn how to export your information to CSV.

Instructions for 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 Other and follow the onscreen instructions to import your data.
  1. Open and unlock 1Password.
  2. From the File menu, choose Import.
  3. Click Other on the import screen.
  4. Click “Import a CSV File” and follow the onscreen instructions to import your data.

These instructions only apply to 1Password 4 for Windows. 1Password 6 can’t import CSV files.

  1. Open and unlock 1Password 4 for Windows.
  2. On the File menu, click Import.
  3. On the format selection menu, choose “Delimited text (*.csv, *.txt)“.
  4. Select the CSV file you created earlier and click the Open button.

If the CSV import does not work properly, you may have to modify the CSV file so it matches the format that 1Password understands. Learn more about how to create a 1Password compatible CSV file.

Important

1PIF and CSV files are not encrypted. They store your information in plain text. After you’re done importing your data into your 1Password vault, be sure to securely delete the files from your computer. For your security, do not use an online service to read or transfer these files between machines, because your passwords would be transmitted in plain text.
