Step 2: Import your data from Firefox into Dashlane
Import your Firefox CSV file into Dashlane using our web app or Android app. You can't import a CSV file to Dashlane using the iOS (Apple) or Safari app.
Important: CSV files aren't encrypted, and others can read them. Delete the CSV file from your device after you import your data.
Import your Firefox data with the web app
- In the Dashlane web app, select the My account menu. Then select Settings and Import data.
- For Import source, select Firefox. Then select Get Started.
- Drag your Firefox CSV file to the app or select browse your computer files to search for it, and then select Next. If you're a Starter, Team, or Business plan member, choose whether to import your data to your Personal or Business Space, then select Next.
- Preview your import. You can change whether Dashlane imports an item as a Login or a Secure Note. Starter, Team, and Business plan members can choose whether specific items go to their Personal or Business Space.
- Select Import items. You'll see a confirmation with the number of items imported.
Import your Firefox data with the Android app
- Select + Add new, Logins, and then Want to import multiple logins?
- Select From another password manager and then Select file.
- Select the CSV file that you exported from Firefox and select Import.
Firefox allows you to export logins only. So your import will include logins but not other data. Information that we couldn't import to a specific field will appear in the Note section of each login.
If you have any problems, check out the common problems and solutions at the end of this article.

Solve problems with your Firefox data import
I'm having problems importing my Firefox 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 Firefox file to fit Dashlane's CSV template.
- Download our CSV template
- Export your Firefox CSV.
Example of a CSV export from Firefox:
- Paste each column from the Firefox 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://". Put extra columns from the Firefox CSV after the totp column in the Dashlane CSV template. The information from extra columns will be imported to the login's Note section.
Example of a Dashlane CSV template after pasting in Firefox 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.
