Migrating password data from 1Password to KeePass

I’m compelled to write this because I migrated some password data from 1Password to KeePass and it wasn’t as straightforward as it should have been, and the KeePass 1Password importer didn’t work for me.

Mind you, this will only migrate data from your Logins, not Wallet, Accounts, Software, Secure Notes, Identities, or Generated Passwords. You’ll have to move this data over manually.

So, here goes. This was done with 1Password 1.0.9.305 and KeePass 2.20.1.

Open 1Password and unlock your database.

Click File > Export, and export All Logins as Tab-delimited text.

Save your exported file somewhere where you’ll be able to find it.

Now open KeepPass and create a new database (File > New…)

After creating your database, click File > Import.

Select Generic CSV Importer, and select the file you exported previously, then click Ok.

On the importer screen, click the Structure tab and change only the settings as follows:

Under Syntax

Change Field Seperator to {Tab}

Check Ignore First Row

Under Semantics

Move the fields in the following order:

  • Title
  • Notes
  • User Name
  • Password
  • URL

Here’s a screenshot as a visual aid:

1p_kp_csv

You can click the Preview tab to verify things are in order.

Click Finish, and your items will be imported under the main group (which was called NewDatabase in my case).

Comments are welcome below. Thanks for reading!

Migrating password data from LastPass to 1Password

This explains a fairly simple way to migrate your LastPass data to 1Password using Windows.

First, open your LastPass vault by going to https://lastpass.com and logging in.

Next, under the Actions column on the left, click Export.

For the next part, you’ll have to save the decrypted data to a CSV file. I was using Chrome when I did this, but I’m certain the instructions for any other browser aren’t too much more difficult.

When your decrypted LastPass vault data appears, click the wrench icon and choose ‘Save Page As…

In the file prompt that appears, name the file something you can remember and give it an extension of .CSV. For example, lastpass.csv

NOTE: Your exported CSV contains ALL your LastPass vault data in PLAIN TEXT.

Now, open 1Password and import your LastPass data as follows:

From within 1Password, select File > Import and select the CSV file you just exported from LastPass.

On the Select Columns screen, map the fields as follows:

  • Title -> name
  • username -> username
  • password -> password
  • location -> url
  • description -> extra

Click OK, then click “Yes to all” on the next screen.

After a few moments your password data should be loaded into 1Password.

Note: Your LastPass secure notes will import with ‘sn’ in the location field.
