Import Data to your Vault

Category: Import/Export
On this page:

    Bitwarden provides a data import tool for easy migration from any password management solution to your personal Vault or Organization Vault (see Import Data to an Organization).

    You can also use the data import tool to import from one Bitwarden Vault to another, or to import a backup Encrypted Export.

    Bitwarden supports a large array of formats for import, including those used by the most popular password management solutions:

    For a full list of supported formats, see Supported Formats.

    Import to your Personal Vault

    To import your data into a personal Vault:

    1. Log in to the Web Vault.
    2. Select Tools from the top navigation bar.
    3. Select Import Data from the left Tools menu.
    4. Select the format of your file to import from the dropdown menu.


      If you’re importing an Encrypted Export, select .json as you would if it were plaintext. A handler will determine that the file is encrypted and decrypt using your account encryption key.

    5. Select the Browse button and add your file.
    6. Select the Import Data button to complete your import.

    Importing data multiple times will create duplicates.

    Troubleshooting Import Errors

    If you get the following error:

    Ciphers[X].Login: The field yyyy exceeds the maximum encrypted value length of zzzz characters.

    An item in your .csv exceeds the size limited allowed for items stored in the Bitwarden Vault. Remove the offending item from your file for import, or reduce its size. You can open the .csv in a text editor or spreadsheet program for easy editing, and locate the offending item at index[X] as referenced in the error message.
