How do I import a LastPass Encrypted file that was exported from LastPass?

You can easily import your LastPass Vault data that you exported as a LastPass Encrypted file. Please note that in order to import LastPass Vault data back in to LastPass, you will be required to enter the encryption key that you created during the export process.

Import using the LastPass web browser extension

Please note that importing directly into a shared folder is not currently supported. This means that all items will be imported as items within standard folders.

  1. Click the inactive LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar.
  2. Enter your username and Master Password, then click Log In.
  3. If prompted, complete steps for Multifactor Authentication (if it is enabled on your account).

  4. Click the LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar.
  5. Go to Account OptionsAdvanced > Import.
  6. Use the drop-down menu and select LastPass.
  7. Click Import, then select your LastPass CSV file and click Open.
  8. Enter your encryption key (that was created when you exported), then click Decrypt.

  9. Choose from one of the following options:
    • Select the data you want to import, then click Import Selected.
    • Click Import All to import everything.

Your exported LastPass data is now imported in to your LastPass Vault.

Import from within the LastPass Vault

    • Click Import All to import everything.

Your exported LastPass data is now imported in to your LastPass Vault.

Autofilling after import

Once imported, you might notice that some websites do not autofill right away. This is because LastPass needs to “see” the website in order to capture the exact username and password fields, as they differ from website to website. When you visit the website for the first time after importing, use the Field icons to force fill the credentials and log in. It will autofill every time after that.
