Import Data from Myki

Use this article for help exporting data from Myki and importing into Bitwarden. Myki data exports are available as .csv files.

Export from Myki

The process for exporting data from Myki is different depending on which platform you are using. Whenever possible, we recommend exporting from the Myki web app for the smoothest experience importing to Bitwarden.

For help exporting from Myki, refer to these Myki articles.

Condition your CSVs

If you exported from a Myki mobile app, you will be required to condition your .csv files for import into Bitwarden. This will primarily involve renaming column headers and, in some cases, re-ordering columns in the .csv.

Each of the following sections will document first the format exported by Myki and second the format expected by Bitwarden.



Nickname,Url,Username,Password,Additional Info,Two Factor Secret,Status





Nickname,Card Number,CardName,Exp Month,Exp Year,CVV,Additional Info,Status

Import to Bitwarden

Data must be imported to Bitwarden from the web vault or CLI. Data is encrypted locally before being sent to the server for storage.

To import data to your vault:

  1. Log in to the web vault at, or if self-hosting.

  2. Select Tools from the top navigation bar.

  3. Select Import Data from the tools menu.

  4. Complete the following fields from the drop down menus:

    • Import destination: Select the import destination such as your individual vault or an organizational vault that you have access to.

    • Folder or Collection: Select if you would like the imported content moved to a specific folder or organization collection that you have access to.

    • File format: Select the import file format.

  5. Select Choose File and add the file to import or copy/paste the contents of your file into the input box.


    Importing does not check whether items in the file to import already exist in your vault. If you import multiple files or import files with items already in your vault, this will create duplicates.

  6. Select Import Data to trigger the import. If you are importing a password protected .json file, enter the password into the Confirm Vault Import window that will appear.

  7. After successful import, delete the import source file from your computer. This will protect you in the event your computer is compromised.

Additional items such as File attachments, Sends, trash, and password history will need to be manually uploaded to your vault.

To import data to your vault from the CLI, use the following command:

bw import <format> <path>

bw import requires a format (use bw import --formats to retrieve a list of formats) and a path, for example:

bw import lastpasscsv /Users/myaccount/Documents/mydata.csv

After successful import, delete the import source file from your computer. This will protect you in the event your computer is compromised.
