Importing credentials from other sources


(Tim Lavoie) #1

I’ve been using LastPass for some things, KeepassXC for others that are
less web-based. While I can export those from their respective tools,
I’d like to be able to bulk import into Firefox for the purpose of
trying Lockbox. Suggestions?

Thanks for your support and desire to try Lockbox!

If you’re using a Windows machine, I believe you can import passwords from another browser using these instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/import-bookmarks-data-another-browser

Unfortunately this doesn’t work on devices running OSX. As far as I know, there isn’t a good way to import passwords from other browsers into Firefox on Macs.

As for importing from other password managers and/or csv files, I’m not aware of any options currently available. It’s on the Lockbox team’s radar but not on our near-term roadmap.

One of our team members wrote a Python script to create and import random accounts. If you wanted to hack on a solution, this could be re-purposed to import other records.

Cool, thanks Sandy! I’ll play with that script, as I figured I could import a subset of accounts for experimentation.

Cheers,

Tim
