Switching from one password management application to another means that you need to migrate your data from the old one to the new one. This might sound scary, but it really isn't. With this article, we'll show you how to export your usernames and passwords from LastPass and import them into your Cyclonis Password Manager encrypted vault.
Of course, before you can put your sensitive information in Cyclonis Password Manager, you first need to export it from your LastPass vault. Here are the steps:
STEP 1: Make sure you are logged into your LastPass account. Click on the LastPass browser extension icon. Click More Options>Advanced>Export
STEP 2: Next LastPass will ask you what sort of information you'd like to export. The option you need is LastPass CSV File.
STEP 3: You will be prompted for your LastPass master password. When you enter it, LastPass open a new browser tab and will display some text. You should be able to see your usernames and passwords in there, so make sure that no one is looking over your shoulder. Select all the text, copy it, and paste it in Notepad. Press ctrl+s to save the data into a file. In the Save As window, select All Files (*.*) from the Save as type drop-down menu. In the File name field, enter a name for the file you're about to export and append a .csv extension to it (e.g. "export.csv"). With this, your data will be saved on the hard drive of your computer. Time to import the passwords to Cyclonis Password Manager.
STEP 4: Open Cyclonis Password Manager and log into your account with your master password. Click File>Import/Export>Import LastPass Data.
STEP 5: Navigate to the file with the exported passwords and double-click on it. The exported usernames and passwords should automatically appear in your Cyclonis Password Manager vault.
You're all set, but there's still one very important thing you need to do. The passwords you imported from export.csv are already in your Cyclonis Password Manager encrypted vault. CSV files store data in plain text, which means that if you don't delete export .csv, somebody with access to your computer might be able to open it and see your passwords. Make sure that the file is deleted after you import the data.
