Export Dashlane data to a CSV file
Export Dashlane data to a secure DASH file
In a few steps, you can move your logins and other data to Dashlane from a browser or another password manager. You can only use a CSV file to move your data from other password managers to Dashlane. You can't use special files created by other password managers like 1Password's 1PUX to import your data to Dashlane.
We have specific instructions for moving your data from any of these password managers or browsers:
For all other password managers, use the steps in this article.
Important: If you want to use the Free plan, but have more than 25 logins, you won't be able to import logins from other sources. You have two options. You can either delete some of your logins or upgrade to any of our paid plans, including Dashlane Premium and Dashlane Friends & Family. These plans offer unlimited logins, a VPN for safeguarding your WiFi connections, real-time phishing alerts, and Dark Web Monitoring.

Step 1: Export your data from another password manager
You can export your data from most browsers and password managers to a CSV file. See steps for exporting from one of these password managers or browsers:
If you're not using one of these password managers or browsers or having trouble exporting your data, contact the customer support team of the password manager you're trying to export from.
Important: CSV files aren't encrypted, and others can read them. Delete the CSV file from your device after you finish these steps.
Step 2: Prepare your data
If you're using one of the browsers or password managers listed at the beginning of this article, you can skip this step and move on to step 3 to import your CSV file directly to Dashlane.
Before importing to Dashlane, move your data into our CSV template, so our app can read it properly.
Steps for moving your data into the Dashlane CSV template
- Download our CSV template
- Paste each column from your CSV export into the matching column of the Dashlane CSV template.
- Put "Login" or "Secure Note" for all rows in the Type column.
- Put extra columns from the exported CSV after the totp column in the Dashlane CSV template. The information from extra columns will be imported to the login's Note section.
