This article provides the steps to export your data from the Dashlane web app into a readable CSV file.
To export data from the web app into a CSV file, you must be running version 6.2123 or above of the Dashlane extension and using one of the following browsers:
To export your passwords:
- Go to My Account and select Export Data.
- Enter your Master Password and click Unlock to access your secure data.
- Click Export to CSV to download a CSV file of your passwords.
If you're using a business account with Smart Space Management enabled, this process will export only data saved in your Personal space. It will not export data saved in your company space even if it's not enforced to be there by your account admin.
IMPORTANT: This information applies to Dashlane's desktop apps, which are no longer available.
How to export data from the desktop app
On the desktop app, export files will contain only passwords. Before exporting the rest of your data, manually copy your Secure Notes.
From the desktop app, you can export your passwords in JSON, Excel, or CSV format.
- From the File menu, select Export and then the format: JSON, Excel, or CSV.
- Enter your Master Password and click OK to access your secure data.
- Name the file, select where to download it, and click Save.
Known issue on Excel for Windows
If you export your data to Excel on Windows, you might get a message when opening the file warning you that the file format and the extension don't match. If this happens, click Yes and continue. The Excel file will still open, and you will have access to your data.
Export your data to Apple Numbers or any other spreadsheet application
Although we do not officially support Numbers, you can export your data to a new document by following these steps.
- In Dashlane, on the click File > Export > Unsecured archive (readable) in CSV format.
- Open the newly created file using a text editor (like TextEdit on a Mac or Notepad on Windows).
- Replace all commas and semi-colons in the file with "," and ";" (including the quotes). To do this, use the Replace feature of the editor (Ctrl+H on Notepad; ⌘+F on TextEdit).
- Save the file and make sure that its extension is CSV and not TXT.
- Open this file in Numbers, and your data should display properly.
This will also work with any other spreadsheet application able to open CSV files.
