Import & Export FAQs
This article contains frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding import & export.
Q: How do I import my data if I don’t see my service on the import options list?
A: If we don't have official support for the service you are using, manually condition a
.json for import into Bitwarden. For more information about how to do this, see Condition a Bitwarden .csv or .json.
Q: Can I import to Bitwarden from iCloud/Mac Keychain/Safari?
Q: How do I import items directly to collections?
A: To import items directly to collections, format your import as a Bitwarden
.csv (for more information, see Condition a Bitwarden .csv or .json) and specify collections to import each item to within the file.
Q: How do I import file attachments to Bitwarden?
A: File attachments must be manually migrated to your Bitwarden vault, as they are currently not included in bulk import operations.
Please note that storage of file attachments is available only for premium users, including members of paid organizations (families, teams, or enterprise).
Q: Why did importing create duplicate vault items?
A: Every import operation creates every new record as an item in your vault, regardless of whether matching vault items already exist in your vault. Prior to import, we recommend either:
Editing your import file to only include net-new vault Items.
Purging your vault before an import operation.
Individual vaults can be purged from the Settings → My Account page. Organization vaults can be purged from the Organization Settings → My Organization page.
