Import passwords from your browsers or password managers

To import your passwords into LockPass, there are several import formats available.

If your passwords were previously stored on your browser, use the import formats from Edge, Chrome or Firefox.

If you want to migrate your organization's passwords from another password manager software, use the corresponding import formats (KeyPass, KeyPassXC, LastPass and Dashlane).

  • Step 1 : In the Settings tab, click on « Passwords ».

  • Step 2 : On the window that appears, choose the right import format from the drop-down menu. 

🚨 If you were using tools like KeyPass, KeyPassXC, LastPass and Dashlane, or the password saving modules of Edge, Chrome or Firefox browsers, you can directly use the CSV file obtained when you export your passwords from their interface (the passwords will be by default all imported in your Personal Space).

Once your passwords are imported, they will all be stored in the root of your Personal Space. You will then be able to move them to the appropriate spaces and categories (of the Personal Space or the Shared Space).

🚨 Remember to delete your passwords from the tools you were previously using once they have been successfully imported into LockPass.


Import from a personal CSV file

If you were using another tool than these mentionned above, or a personal Excel file for example, you can choose the Default format in the drop-down menu, and create your own CSV file. This option will allow you to specify the spaces and categories where you want to import your passwords.

  • Step 1 : Create a CSV file, using the following nomenclature.
Name;URL;Username;Password;Category/SubCategory;Tags;Description;Opt1;Opt2;Opt3
    • Name : name corrsponding to the password
    • URL : link of the website
    • Username : your username or email address for this login
    • Password : your password for this login
    • Category/SubCategory : category and subcategory in which you want to store the password
    • Tags : keyword thtat will help you to find the password (optional, can be left blank)
    • Description : description of the login (optional, can be left blank)
    • Opt1 : optional field 1 (optional, can be left blank)
    • Opt2 : optional field 2 (optional, can be left blank)
    • Opt3 : optional field 3 (optional, can be left blank)

This is what your file should look like in Excel:
