Import your data from LastPass

Importing your data from LastPass into Bitwarden is easy.

Export your sites from the LastPass.com web vault

  1. Log into your LastPass account at www.lastpass.com 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.

Warning

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 data into Bitwarden

  1. Go to the Bitwarden web vault and log in.
  2. Navigate to ToolsImport Data.
  3. Select LastPass (csv) as the file format and paste the CSV content into the textbox that you copied to your clipboard in step 4 above.
    • Click into the textbox with your mouse, then right click with your mouse and select Paste.
  4. Click the Import Data button.

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

Importing form fills (optional)

LastPass does not include form fills with the standard export from the LastPass web vault. If you want to import form fill information into Bitwarden you can export the form fill CSV data from the LastPass browser extension.

  4. Your data will be decrypted and shown on screen in CSV format.
  5. 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.
  6. Follow the same import steps in Import your data into Bitwarden.
