Moving your passwords from LastPass to Keeper Security is simple and secure with this straightforward guide. All information stored in LastPass, including passwords, folders, subfolders, notes and accounts can be migrated to Keeper with just a few clicks!
How Safe is LastPass?
Recently, LastPass reported it suffered another security breach on November 30, 2022. LastPass’s most recent security incident was determined to be caused by an unauthorized party that was able to obtain information from another security incident that happened in August of this year. Despite their recent breaches, LastPass maintains their customer’s passwords remain safely encrypted. The scope of their latest security incident is still being investigated.
In 2015, LastPass was hacked, which led them to make changes to strengthen their systems. Additionally, there was another incident in 2021 where multiple users received a notification claiming attempted unusual login activity.
Three Ways to Migrate From LastPass to Keeper
Keeper offers multiple methods to safely and easily import your LastPass records. Regardless of which method you follow, please do not delete your LastPass account until you have confirmed all records have been transferred successfully.
Automatically Transfer From LastPass to Keeper
The Keeper Desktop application allows you to automatically transfer your entire LastPass vault to Keeper with just a few clicks.
Download Keeper Desktop from: https://keepersecurity.com/download
- Login to Keeper Desktop using your email and master password.
- Click on your account email in the upper right-hand corner.
Click Settings > Import. Then choose LastPass.
5. Enter your LastPass login credentials. If you have two-factor authentication enabled, you must also type in the code you receive through your authenticator app. Then select Next.
6. To complete, click Import, and that’s it!
Manually Transfer From LastPass to Keeper
If you choose to import manually, you’ll need to export your information in the form of a CSV file. This step must be completed prior to deleting your LastPass account. If you delete your LastPass account before retrieving this information, you run the risk of being locked out of all your online accounts. Once you delete your account, your password vault will be wiped and it will not be possible to regain access to export your data from LastPass.
You can import data to your Keeper password vault with your LastPass CSV file. All you need is your email address, master password and the export file.
There are two ways to export your passwords from LastPass.
Exporting Your Passwords Through the Browser Extension
- Click the LastPass extension icon to open the menu.
Once there, select Account Options > Advanced > Export
Finally, click LastPass CSV File.
The file will automatically download to your computer and can then be imported to Keeper. LastPass vault data files can also be downloaded through their website.
Exporting Your Passwords with the LastPass Web Vault
- Open the LastPass Web Vault in your browser.
- Log into your account by entering your master password.
Once inside the vault, select Advanced Options and then Export.
Once you have the CSV, follow these steps to import your passwords manually into Keeper:
Visit the Keeper Download page and download the desktop app or go to your Web Vault.
Log into your account and follow the path: Settings > Import > LastPass.
Instead of using the LastPass automated transfer option, click on Import CSV, located in the top right-hand corner.
- You can import your data file by dragging and dropping it into the section shown below.
5. After dropping the CSV file, a new window will appear featuring all your imported information. Select Next > Import.
The final option is to use our command-line interface (CLI) tool, Keeper Commander. With Keeper Commander, you can transfer passwords, folders, templates and custom fields to Keeper records, record file attachments and more.
