Better import of passwords from other password managers

Better import of passwords from other password managers

Currently the passwords app is only allowing CSV import and the csv files that are generated by enpass, 1password etc are really messy and just dont work without pretty much manually editing all the data anway - defeating the point of an import.

 

All the big password manages somehow manage to import and export their data pretty flawlessly. I think dropbox should be as equally easy to get data in and out of. At the moment im sticking with enpass because there is years of data i cant face editing in a new CSV file to get it inside dropbox passwords.

I guess as the DB Passwords is a pretty late attempt on a password vault you won't get any more votes soon, but the point that Dujio has is pretty serious. How do you get users to give the dropbox app a chance if you can't import from the most common password apps out there? If I could I would vot 100 up for that but it is so basic that I really don't see a reason to not report that to development.

Echoing the above - currently using 1Password legacy, don't want another subscription, would love to use Dropbox's offering, but need a flawless import function before I can switch.

Meanwhile I was able to do it. Should be possible for 1PW legacy users to import now. but still lacking basic PW Manager Features like 2FA or categories.

Been a longtime 1Password user, I use it for passwords, notes, cc #'s, bank account numbers, etc. Would love to migrate to Dropbox (but I'm happy sitting on a legacy license), hope Dropbox's Password app continues to improve. FYI the name of the app makes searching the forums and the Internet a real PITA. Come up with a catchy, unique name already, such as "PassBox"?

Dropbox importer is fundamentally broken since the CSV import only support comma separated values in the CSV. No other separator allowed. So if you have notes or passwords containing commas, the import will break. I tried to explain this to Dropbox in a support issue, but they didn't understand the problem, which makes me really wary of ever trusting my passwords with their manager. But I'm ready to be proven wrong. The lack of OTP support is however the main dealbreaker, even if I would've managed to clean up my CSV file enough.

Sadly this doesn’t help as the CSV file for “other password managers” still needs to be heavily edited  - I use enpass. 

has anything actually changed or is this just a more detailed explanation of existing methods?
