1Password import error

As 1Password has not turned into a awful subscription I want to move to bitwarden.

When I import my 1Password pif I see this error
I very much doubt I have an item with 10,000 characters!
I looked at lie 1139 in BBEdit and its not long at all.


There are already numerous reports for this, please do some search before posting :wink:

I started removing lines using BBedit, 2 lines turned int removing 10, then another 10. Now I’ve given up.

BitWarden looks a good product but I’m not prepared to use until the import is better than this.

2.5 years later, same problem. Not only that but the entire import failed without importing anything because 3 entries had passwords >10000. Guess what, my 1Password main vault has ~1050 entries,… am I supposed to guess which ones are causing it to break?

My pif file is 1.3MB in size and I have no plans to start processing JSON myself.

So my attempt to try to switch to BitWarden was killed quickly and without any hopes of seeing any solution ever.


I also was in the process of switching from 1Password but have halted. I am interested in Bitwarden and watch it closely but the transfer of data from 1Password is not robust enough at present. I’m hoping the developer decides it’s worth doing properly.

May be this could help importing your data? :confused:
