This article is for admins of Dashlane Starter, Team, and Business plans. If you want to move your own data to Dashlane, visit Move your data from KeePass to Dashlane.
As an admin of a Starter, Team, or Business plan, you can migrate your organization's logins from KeePass to Dashlane in five steps.
Step 1: Deploy Dashlane to your organization
If you haven't already, use our deployment guide to create a Starter, Team, or Business plan. With this guide, you'll learn how to access the Admin Console, choose security settings, and add and onboard plan members.

Step 2: Export data from KeePass
Everyone at your organization who uses KeePass needs to export their logins from KeePass to a CSV file. If your plan members have any problems exporting, contact KeePass support.

Step 3: Import data from KeePass into Dashlane
Each plan member needs to import the CSV file they exported from KeePass. They can import a CSV file into Dashlane using our web app or Android app but not the iOS (Apple) or Safari app.
Important: CSV files aren't encrypted, and others can read them. Ask your plan members to delete the CSV file from their device after importing their data.
Import KeePass data with the web app
Your plan members can follow these steps to import their data using the Dashlane web app.
- In the Dashlane web app, select the My account menu. Then select Settings and Import data.
- For Import source, select KeePass. Then select Get Started.
- Drag the KeePass CSV file to the app or select browse your computer files to search for it, and then select Next. Choose whether you import your data to your Personal or Business Space, and then select Next.
- Preview your import. You can change whether Dashlane imports an item as a Login or a Secure Note. Choose whether specific items go to your Personal or Business Space.
- Select Import items. You'll see a confirmation with the number of items imported.
Import KeePass data with the Android app
Your plan members can follow these steps to import their data using the Dashlane Android app.
- Select + Add new, Logins, and then Want to import multiple logins?
- Select From another password manager and then Select file.
- Select the KeePass CSV file that you exported and select Import.
KeePass allows you to export logins only. So the import will include logins but not other data. Information we couldn't import to a specific field will appear in the Note section of each login.
If your plan members have any problems, ask them to check out the common problems and solutions at the end of this article.

Step 4: Recreate your sharing settings
After your members import their data into Dashlane, you can recreate any data sharing or group sharing you had in KeePass.

Step 5: Uninstall KeePass
After all your organization's data and settings have been moved to Dashlane, ask your members to uninstall any KeePass apps. Otherwise, they might have problems using Autofill and other Dashlane features.
KeePass doesn't provide information on its website about how to turn off or uninstall its apps. If your members need help turning off or uninstalling KeePass, we recommend contacting their customer support.
Solve problems with your KeePass data import
I'm having problems importing my KeePass data to Dashlane. What do I do?
If your import takes too long, split the data into multiple CSVs and import it in smaller batches.
If the import isn't working at all, follow these troubleshooting steps:
- Make sure your Dashlane app is up to date.
Update your Dashlane app
- Make sure the file you're importing is a CSV file. Check for ".csv" at the end of the filename. Or open the file, select Save as, and save the file as a CSV file.
- Check that each entry in the Web address or url column of the file begins with either "http://" or "https://".
If none of these steps solve your problem, you can manually change the KeePass file to fit Dashlane's CSV template.
- Download our CSV template
- Export your KeePass CSV.
Example of a CSV export from KeePass:
- Paste each column from the KeePass CSV into the matching column of the Dashlane CSV template.
Put "Login" for all rows in the Type column. Make sure each entry in the url column begins with either "http://" or "https://".
Example of a Dashlane CSV template after pasting in KeePass data:
- Import the CSV file to Dashlane as described in this article. But for Import source, select Other CSV.
Import your data to Dashlane
The import worked, but I don't see all my data. Where did it go?
If you don't see all your data for a specific item, check the Note section of each login and the content of each Secure Note.
Other password managers have their own ways of storing and organizing your data that we can't control. They can add, remove, and rename fields. While we aim to import all your information to Dashlane, we might not be able to import everything to the perfect place for each item.
To make sure none of your information is lost, we put everything that we can't match to a specific field in the Note section of your logins or the content of your Secure Notes.
What do I do if there are duplicates?
