How to import your passwords to Dropbox Passwords from other password managers

You might have heard about Dropbox Passwords, (and if you haven’t, you can learn all about it here) but what if you already use a password management tool? We have good news, it’s simple to import your passwords from another tool. Follow the steps below to import your already saved passwords from LastPass, Dashlane, 1Password and other password tools. 
 
 

Import from LastPass

 

  1. Sign into LastPass.com or LastPass browser extension
  2. Click Advanced Options on the sidebar
  3. Select Export under Manage Your Account 
  4. Enter your LastPass master password
    1. If you’ve signed into LastPass.com on web, you will see your passwords data on a new Tab. Copy the content and save it to a file. You can name it <name>.csv 
    2. If you’ve signed into the browser extension, you will see a lastpass_export.csv automatically downloaded
  5. From your Dropbox Passwords app, click Add button under your avatar, select Import from…, select Passwords Manager and select the csv file from step 4
  6. Delete the file from step 4 for safety reasons
 

Import from Dashlane

 

  1. Launch Dashlane and log in to your account
  2. Select File > Export > Unsecured archive (readable) in CSV format
  3. Enter your Master Password (if required)
  4. Save the file in a safe place
  5. From your Dropbox Passwords app, click Add button under your avatar, select Import from…, select Passwords Manager and select the csv file from step 4
  6. Delete the file from step 4 for safety reasons
 

Import from 1Password

 

  1. Open and unlock 1Password.
  2. Select the vault you want to export. It’s not possible to export from “All Vaults”, so you’ll need to switch to a specific vault.
  3. Choose File > Export > All Items. If you belong to a team account, there may be some vaults where you don’t have the “Export items” permission. Ask your team administrator.
  4. Enter your Master Password.
  5. Choose a location to save your export to (such as your desktop), choose File format:
  • “Comma Delimited Text (.CSV)” ,  “All Fields” ,  “Include Column Labels”,  Click Save”
  1. From your Dropbox Passwords app, click Add button under your avatar, select Import from…, select Passwords Manager and select the csv file from step 5
  2. Delete the file from step 5 for safety reasons
 

Import from other Password Managers

 

  1. find the option from other Passwords managers to export items to a CSV
  2. From your Dropbox Passwords app, click Add button under your avatar, select Import from…, select Passwords Manager and select the csv file from step 1
  3. Delete the file from step 1 for safety reasons
 
 
Now that you can transfer your passwords over with just a few clicks, it’s the perfect time to get set up with Dropbox Passwords and leave the dreaded ‘forgot password?’ button in the past.
