How can I migrate my data from Kaspersky Password Manager to 1Password?

Hello,
the only way to migrate from KPM seems to be export csv.
However, the data exported is not in compatible format. Someone tried this before? Any suggestions on how to convert data?
Thanks.

    Can you show a sample of the CSV file, with dummy data, and explain / show the column headings?

    The last time I looked at the K.P.M. export, it was a marginally formatted text file (not CSV).

    Hello @ffservizio, thanks for the question! I'll be happy to help here. 👋

    As far as I know, Kaspersky exports to a plaintext file format. We don't have a direct way of importing that to the app, but worry not - you should still be able to migrate this information over. And we're happy to provide advice and support on this process.

    Here's how I'd suggest you approach this:

    1. Export from Kaspersky to the plain-text file format they use
    2. Download the excellent converter suite here, which was created by illustrious 1Password community member @MrC
    3. Use the converter to convert the original file to .CSV format. CSV is a common format that many password managers can use, so once you've got your data to this point things become much more navigable.
    4. Then, use these directions to import the .CSV data into your 1Password account, which will populate it into your apps. 👍

    And of course, we're here if you have questions at any step in the process. I hope this provides a helpful beginning. Welcome to 1Password; we're so glad to meet you!

    @MrC you are right.
    KPM exports two type of data, one is -I guess- proprietary .edb file. The other is txt file, not a real csv... here an example:

    @ffservizio ,

    That's what I suspected. I'll modify the directions above provided by @PeterG_1P , however.

    Use the kaspersky converter in the converter suite. It will create a 1PIF file, and not a CSV file, however. You will need 1Password 7 to import this 1PIF file, so if you have version 8, uninstall it temporarily, install version 7, and then you can import the 1PIF. Then you may uninstall 7, reinstall 8.

    You can do all of the uninstalling / reinstalling of 1Password after you have the conversion completed; that way, if there are issues you'd need me to resolve, you still have your current 1Password version working.

    The README will walk you through the process. You'll ultimately see something like:

    and that produced 1PIF is what you want.

    Hi there, I downloaded the converter but can't find Kaspersky in the list. Even though I can see it in the folders. Am I missing something?

    Just figured it out, not possible on Mac. My mistake...

    Good, you found the information about the lack of an export mechanism on macOS. I believe you can export on Windows, and convert the exported file on macOS.

    Hallo,
    I´m not able to concert the Kaspersky export file.

    I did everything als descriped.

    1. Export TXT-File form Kaspersky Password Manager and safed it on the desktop with the name "pm_export.txt"
    2. Installed the MRC-Converter Suite
    3. Installed Strawberry Perl
    4. Excute following command in CMD: perl convert.pl -v Kaspersky ..\pm_export.txt

    Error -> Unexpreced file format

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hello @Landy66

    Can you tell me which version of Kaspersky Password Manager you are using (version number, and Premium vs. Free), and which platform?

    I just tried version 10.0.0.592 Windows Free:

    @Landy66 - I too had Kaspersky and went through the same process listed in the previous comments and it worked perfectly. Answering your question in case you have not figured out, you need to type the complete address where the .txt file is at the end of the command. In your case would be (just copy and paste):

    C:\Users\Lenovo\Desktop\mrc-converter-suite>perl convert.pl -v kaspersky C:\Users\Lenovo\Desktop\pm_export.txt

    Once you hit Enter, you should see something like this:

    Thanks for the additional feedback @mhgiraldo , and I'm glad you were able to convert your export data.

    When the file is not found at the provided path, an error would be returned which would state something like:

    The file '..\foo.txt' does not exist.
    

    The path provided by the user was OK.

    The error encountered by the other user indicates that the export file was missing some expected patterns at the beginning of the export file, namely Websites, Applications, or Notes. Example:

    I suspect the export was either empty, or was the proprietary .edb format, but was given the .txt suffix.
