Before You Get Started
Once you've exported your vault from LastPass, all of your data will be stored in plaintext. Anyone with access to these files will be able to read your passwords. Be careful where you store the exported file and delete it once you're finished.
Step 1 - Export From LastPass.com
- Go to lastpass.com
- Log into your account
- At the bottom of the left hand column, click Advanced Options
- Under the Manage Your Vault heading, click Export
- Open the emaul from LastPass with the subject 'LastPass Security Notification: Verify export'
- Click the Continue export link in the email to go to another webpage
- Go back to your vault on lastpass.com and, once again, click Advanced Options > Export
- Enter your LastPass master password
- Locate the CSV file that is downloaded to your device (called 'download.csv)
For more detailed instructions see the guides on LastPass' website.
Step 2a - Import using Strongbox on Mac
- Open Strongbox on your Mac
- Click File (in the menu bar) > Import > LastPass (CSV)...
- Locate and select the CSV file that you exported in Part 1 above. Strongbox will confirm the import was successful
- You now need to set a master password for your Strongbox database. This can be the same as your old LastPass master password if you like.
- Lastly, save your new Strongbox database either locally or on your favourite cloud drive
- Check your entries in Strongbox to make sure all of your data has been imported successfully
- Delete the CSV file that you had exported from LastPass
Step 2b - Import using Strongbox on iPhone/iPad
