Moving to 1Password from another password manager [Mac]

edited February 2019 in Mac

If you're looking to move to 1Password from another password manager, and need help getting your data imported, please see this guide:

Move your data from other applications to 1Password

We have native support for importing from Chrome, Dashlane, LastPass, SplashID, and RoboForm. It's also possible to import from a generic CSV file (some adjustments may be required). In addition, one of our fantastic volunteer community moderators, MrC, has created a converter suite that can help with importing, particularly if the above guide does not. MrC will be maintaining the post just below this one with the latest information about the tools he has created. If you need help with importing data into 1Password using either the above guide or MrC's tools, please start a new thread.

    The mrc-converter-suite helps convert various forms of data into a format that can be easily imported by 1Password (version 4 and above).

    In most cases the process will take just a few minutes. The four basic steps for typical usage are:

    1. Prepare Your Data
    2. Convert
    3. Import into 1Password
    4. Cleanup

    A few specialty converters are available too, one for printing 1Password exported data or converting it to CSV, one for importing text files into 1Password, and one for importing vCard contacts.

    The suite runs on OS X, Windows (and likely many Linux distributions). The table below shows the list of converters currently available:

    Bitwarden     KeePassX     Passwords Plus
    Chrome     Keeper Desktop     PasswordWallet
    Clipperz     Keychain     RoboForm
    CSV     Key Finder     Safe in Cloud
    Data Guardian     LastPass     SafeWallet
    DataVault     LicenseKeeper     SPB Wallet
    Enpass     mSecure 3     SplashID Safe
    EssentialPIM     mSecure 5     Sticky Password
    eWallet     Norton Identity Safe     True Key
    Firefox     1Password 1PIF (to HTML, CSV)     Text Files (to Secure Notes)
    F-Secure KEY     Passpack     vCard
    Handy Safe     Password Agent     Subsembly Wallet 4X/4W
    IronKey Identity Manager     Password Depot     Yojimbo
    KeePass 2     Password Safe

    If you have any questions, please start a new thread.. Be sure to mention:

    • your version of 1Password
    • the name and version of the password manager you are converting from
    • your OS and version: Windows or Mac OS X

    Many users have benefited from remote help. If you find the conversion process too difficult, don't hesitate to ask for help. The process takes just a few minutes.

    Comments and feedback are always welcome.

    Enjoy 1Password!

    The mrc-converter-suite utility is not an AgileBits product, nor do I work for AgileBits. I'm a user like you who just loves 1Password.


    • Some browsers may automatically unzip the archive and store the folder in your Downloads area - just move the mrc-converter-suite folder to your Desktop. To unzip the archive: on macOS, just double-click the zip file; on Windows, double-click the zip file, and drag the folder mrc-converter-suite to your Desktop.
    • The converter suite is supported and tested on macOS High Sierra and above, and Windows 10 . Earlier OS releases are no longer tested, nor fully supported (but you're welcome to try). It is also likely to run on various Linux distributions (ask if you need assistance).
