    4. Highlight the printed text, and copy and paste it into a new export.csv file.
    Warning

    Some users have reported a bug which changes special characters in your passwords (&, <, >, etc.) to their HTML-encoded values (for example, &amp;) in the printed export.

    If you observe this bug in your exported data, use a text editor to find and replace all altered values before importing into Bitwarden.

    Alternatively, use the LastPass Pocket application to export your CSV data. The LastPass Pocket application does not appear to be affected by these bugs.

    Export with Form Fills

    Exports from the Web Vault will not include form fills. To export form fill data from LastPass, you must do so from the Browser Extension:

    1. In the Browser Extension, navigate to Account OptionsAdvancedExportForm Fills.
    2. Enter your Master Password to validate the export attempt.

      Your Vault data will be decrypted and printed to the screen in a .csv format.

    2. Select Tools from the top navigation bar.
    3. Select Import Data from the left Tools menu.
    4. Select LastPass (csv) from the format dropdown.
