This article is for admins. If you're a member of a Starter, Team, or Business plan, visit Move your data from LastPass to Dashlane.
As an admin of a Starter, Team, or Business plan, you can migrate your organization's passwords and other data from LastPass to Dashlane in five steps.
When you import your data from LastPass into Dashlane:
- LastPass passwords become Dashlane logins. Each login contains the same item name, website, username, password, and note information. Other information appears in the login notes, like whether the login lived in a custom folder or is a favorite.
- LastPass Notes become Dashlane Secure Notes. Each note contains the same name and contents.
- Other items imported from LastPass, like credit cards and IDs, become individual Secure Notes.
Step 1: Export data from LastPass
Everyone in your organization who used LastPass needs to export their passwords, login details, and other data from LastPass to a CSV (comma-separated values) file. To ensure everyone has the most up-to-date information, visit the LastPass support site for steps.
Steps to export your data from LastPass
If you have any issues exporting from LastPass, contact LastPass support.
Step 2: Deploy Dashlane to your organization
If you haven't created a Starter, Team, or Business plan yet, create one by following our deployment guide. It has everything you need to deploy Dashlane to your organization. You'll learn how to access the Admin Console, what security settings to choose, and how to add and onboard your plan members to Dashlane.

Step 3: Import data from LastPass into Dashlane
After you fully deploy Dashlane to your organization, everyone in your organization who used LastPass needs to import the CSV file they exported from LastPass into Dashlane using the web app or Android app. At this time, you can't import data with a CSV file using the iOS (Apple) or Safari apps.
You should be able to import your LastPass CSV file without editing it. If you run into any issues, visit the Troubleshooting section in this article.
Troubleshooting LastPass data import
Important: If any of your or your members' passwords have been compromised, we recommend changing them. You can use the Dashlane Password Generator to create new, secure passwords. More about the Password Generator
Import your LastPass data with the web app
- To log in to the Dashlane web app, select the Dashlane D icon in your browser's toolbar and enter your Master Password if prompted.
- In the extension pop-up, select Open the web app.
- In the My account menu, select Settings and then Import data.
- In Import source, select LastPass and then Get Started.
- Drag your LastPass CSV file to the app or select browse your computer files to search for it, and then select Next.
- Preview your import. During this step, you can change whether Dashlane imports an item to Logins or Secure Notes. For members of a Starter, Team, or Business plans, you also select a Space to import your logins into, either Personal or Business, and then select Next.

Step 4: Recreate your sharing settings
After everyone imports their data into Dashlane, you can recreate any data sharing or group sharing you had in LastPass.

Troubleshooting LastPass data import
My import is taking a long time. What do I do?
It may take a while to import large amounts of data to Dashlane. If your import is taking too long, split the data into multiple CSVs and import it in smaller batches.
How can I troubleshoot a problem with my import?
If the import isn't working, follow these troubleshooting steps:
- Make sure your Dashlane app is up to date.
- 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://"
- After you export from LastPass, manually change it to fit with Dashlane's CSV template. Once done, import the CSV using the steps in this article, but for Import source, select Other CSV instead of LastPass.
Here's an example of the CSV as exported from LastPass:
- For "Type," enter whether you'd like the item stored as a "Login" or "Secure Note" in Dashlane.
- For "name," "url," "username," and "password," you can paste the data from the LastPass CSV.
- For "note," enter the data from the LastPass "extra" column.
Here’s an example of what the template would look like after you’ve moved the data over from the LastPass CSV:
What do I do if there are duplicates?
If you notice duplicate logins in your password vault, use the following article for helpful tips.
How do I manage linked websites and subdomains?
You can "link" and use the same username and password for different services that share the same account. With linked websites, you don't need to have separate logins for each website that you use the same login for.
For example, your "apple.com" and "icloud.com" accounts may use the same login.
