Import from 1Password doesn't work (1PIF) or mixes up data (cvs)

Recommended Posts

I try to import my passwords from 1Password V7.3.684 (latest) under Windows 10 without success.
1) the option export as .1pif does not exist
2) If I export as .csv file and try to import it I get the message "nothing to import". Nothing more, no error, nothing imported.

Enpass V6.1.1 from Microsoft Store

Any suggestions?

I am a new user of enpass and was trying to import my existing data from 1Password. When I choose the recommendet way of creating a .1PIF file then the import wizard is simply not showing it in the folder were it is definetly located. I have already moved the file to c:\tmp\backup.1PIF to ensure that there is no issue with the lenght of the path etc. didn't help.

If I try to import the data with the cvs export than the files (including the 1PIF) are shown in the browse dialog. However after the successfull import the "titel" is shown as a additional attribute and the actual titel of each item is empty.

Any suggestions on how to get the data transfered into my new environment?

Hi @nordpol

Sorry for the trouble you are going through.

Please follow the steps mentioned below and revert if still you faces issues in Import/Export.

Using .csv format

Step 1: Export data from 1Password

Before importing your data from 1Password to Enpass, first you need to export your 1Password data in the .csv unencrypted file format. Usually you need the desktop version for respective software to export your data in unencrypted format.

Follow these steps to export the data-

  • Open 1Password App.
  • If you’re having data saved in multiple vaults, please select any one vault as 1Password allows to export the data of one vault at a time. Otherwise, you’re good to go.
  • Click on File → Export → All items.
  • Select .csv file format.
  • Select all fields and click the check-mark, include column labels.


  • Choose a name for the .csv file and save it to your desktop.


The data exported to unencrypted file is highly insecure and vulnerable. We recommend that you delete the corresponding .csv file as soon as the importing process is finished.

the export itself is not a problem. I have also checked the content of the file and it is fine. I am also able to import the cvs file. However, the title of all imported items is empty altough a dedicated attribute seems to get created (labled title) which contains the correct titels. I would want the titel to be imported into the native title field so it also shows up in the listing.
