Import your data from LastPass

Importing your data from LastPass into bitwarden is easy.

Export your sites from the web vault

  1. Log into your LastPass account at and navigate to More Options (at the very bottom of the left sidebar menu) → AdvancedExport.
  2. This will take you to a page that then asks you to enter your LastPass master password for verification. Enter your LastPass master password.
  3. Your data will be decrypted and shown on screen in CSV format.
  4. Highlight all of the data on the page and copy it to your clipboard.
    • Highlight all of the data with your mouse (or simply press Ctrl + A), then right click with your mouse and select Copy.


There are known bugs (for years now) with the LastPass exporter regarding special characters such as the ampersand (&), the greater than sign (>), and the less than sign (<). The LastPass exporter may change (HTML encode) these and possibly other special characters in your passwords to their respective HTML encoded values (ex. &amp;, &gt;, and &lt;). If this LastPass bug affects your exported data you should use a text editor (such as Notepad) to find and replace all of these values before importing into bitwarden. For example, you may want to do a find and replace for &amp;& and &lt;<).

Import your sites into bitwarden

  1. Go to the bitwarden web vault and log in.

    • Click into the textbox with your mouse, then right click with your mouse and select Paste.
  4. Click the Import button.

Congratulations! You have just transferred all of your data from LastPass into bitwarden.
