You can export all of your data (passwords, secure notes, form fills, Wi-Fi passwords, etc.) as a CSV file or an XML file, which can then be easily read and moved into your new password manager, like 1Password.
Method #1: CSV export
If you have the LastPass Chrome extension installed, click on the icon and navigate to Account Options > Advanced > Export > LastPass CSV File. You'll be prompted to enter your password and then the CSV will download.
Method #2: Copy and paste
There's also an easy way to transfer the data by just copying and pasting the data from one LastPass to 1Password.
- Open your internet browser and go to LastPass.com.
- Sign in to your account.
- In the sidebar, click Advanced Options.
- Select Export.
- Enter your LastPass password.
Your data will open in a new tab.
- Highlight all the onscreen text. (On a Mac, you can press ⌘ + A. On Windows, press ctrl + A.)
- Copy all the onscreen text. (On a Mac, you can press ⌘ + C. On Windows, press ctrl + C.)
Now that you have the encrypted data from LastPass in a CSV or copied to your clipboard, all you need to do is add the data into 1Password to import it.
- Go to 1Password.com.
- Sign in or sign up for an account.
- Look for your profile picture and name in the upper-right of your account screen—and click on it.
- Select Import.
- Choose LastPass (or any other password manager you're switching from).
By default, 1Password chooses your Private Vault. If you would like to import the data to a different vault, then select it. (Be careful, if you import your personal data to a shared vault, then it will be accessible to others. You can always move some passwords to your shared vault later if you wish).
- For the CSV import option, click the CSV option, browse for the CSV file you exported from LastPass, and upload it. When you're done, delete the CSV.
- For the copy and paste option, Paste your data into the text field. (On a Mac, you can press ⌘ + V. On Windows, press ctrl + V. Or you can right-click and choose paste.)
Finally, choose Take me to my imported items to see what imported and where it imported.
A few notes on your new import from Lastpass to 1Password
- What LastPass calls sites are called logins by 1Password.
- "Secure Notes" will be separated into different categories in 1Password, like Bank Accounts, Driver licenses, or Secure Notes.
- "Folders" become "tags."
- Your stored documents DO NOT get imported. To import those, you need to download them to your computer and store them in 1Password.
If you want to uninstall LastPass, you'll need to uninstall both the browser extension (if you're using it) and the app on your computer.
