Importing to LastPass

I want to try LastPass to see how it compares to NIS. I've exported my passwords from NIS standalone to a cvs file, but when I try to import it to LastPass, it doesn't work. I think maybe the exporting from NIS didn't work properly, like all the data (url,username,password,name,grouping,extra) is all grouped together in the first cell A1, instead of spread out to the other cells. Has anyone tried this?

I tried these instructions (https://lastpass.com/support.php?cmd=showfaq&id=1706) and it hasn't worked. I think the cvs file that is created isn't set up properly. All the separate items like website url, username, password, etc shows up in one cell, instead of separate cells. It has many rows for each website, but the columns filled is just column 1.

Re: Importing to LastPass

John, hopefully this will help with the formatting so you can import. There is a manual suggestion there as well.

Norton Identity Safe allows exporting passwords as plain text in a CSV file. Once you export the CSV file, ensure that a blank line is inserted between the first and second line to correctly import your data

You can then go to your Last Pass Icon > My Last Pass Vault > More Options > Advanced > Import > Generic CSV file and choose the Norton Identity Safe file.

If you'd prefer, you can also "passively import" your passwords by running the two services side-by-side. To do so:

  1. Log in to Norton Identity Safe and stay logged in.

  2. Download Last Pass if you haven't yet (https://lastpass.com/dl), and log in to the Last Pass extension.

  3. Go to the site you want to import from Norton Identity Safe to Last Pass; let Norton Identity Safe log you in.

  4. Last Pass will present you with this notification: 'Should Last Pass Remember this Password?' (http://helpdesk.lastpass.com/wp-content/uploads/savesitedialog.png).

  5. Click on 'Save Site'.

  6. Repeat 3, 4 and 5 for every site you want to import to Last Pass.

Please let us know how you made out.

Cheers

FWIW

I was not able to get the CSV import to work. I used the 'passive import' and it works well.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Importing to LastPass

They have instructions specifically for importing from Norton, which is the first thing I tried but that hasn't work. They also have a sample cvs template file so you can try and follow that format, so I basically started a new cvs file to try and re-create that same file from scratch and that also hasn't work. I'm going to play around with it a bit more and if I still can't get it to work, I'll do the "passive import". I wish Norton hadn't abandoned the NIS standalone.
