Hi, I have some advice for you and you need to check two things. I need you to export your files into a .csv Dashlane file, it will give you an option. Then you need first select the type of file you are importing and set it to Dashlane .csv (if this doesn’t work then skip to the other possible solution). Then you choose the file and where you saved it. You will now need to tap the import button on Bitwarden. It’s done
If you weren’t able to follow that, reply and let me know. If it didn’t work at any step, here is another (but a bit more complex) solution.
Basically, you have to either create an account on another password manager (that is not dashlane), e.g. lastpass. Then you export the .csv file and choose the name of that password manager and import that using the last few steps in the first solution. If you have an account already on another password manager (not dashlane), then export from there and follow the last few steps of the first solution.
The last few steps of the first solution incase you didn’t follow;
Then you need first select the type of file you are importing and set it to the other password managers name and .csv file. Then you choose the file and where you saved it. You will now need to tap the import button on Bitwarden. It’s done
To reiterate what some others said, there is not Dashlane desktop app anymore.
It’s still downloadable, but it won’t let you log into the desktop app.
The browser only has export as DASH or CSV. Is there a plan to add a new import option in the dropdown for Dashlane CSV?
We are aware that Dashlane has decided to discontinue their Desktop apps as of January 10th. With that, they have also dropped support for exporting their json format. We are definitely planning on adding an option to import Dashlane’s csv format. I’ve actually recently started working on it, but don’t have a timeframe for release yet.
Hi Daniel. Thank you for your welcome and very prompt response. I’ll take a look at the instructions and hope to become a fully equipped member of the community soon. So good to see an open source alternative to Dashlane - which I am completely fed up with.
Hi Daniel. I’m working through the instructions using a spreadsheet and hope you don’t mind if I ask for a few clarifications?
The instructions use the credentials.csv file as an example. Am I right to assume that: a: I need to repeat exactly the same steps for each of the dashlane csv files, and
b: I need to import each re-conditioned file separately into Bitwarden?
Is the title of the 8th column in the re-conditioned file is login_uri not login_url?
In the fields column where there are 3 user names I type in “username2: second_username username3: third_username” all in the same cell?
Hoping you might have some further advice here - otherwise it will be time for me to try an alternative to Bitwarden, which would be a shame.
By the by @GJK I tried to use Keepass as an alternative middleware but could not suss out how it worked at all! As you can tell I am not an IT fan and just looking for a simple solution to getting rid of Dashlane.
Yes, each file would need to be conditioned before an import. Unfortunately I can’t offer a mapping for the other files at this time. You’d have to have a look at what Dashlane provides and what the Bitwarden import requires. All fields are documented in the link I provided earlier.
The title of the 8th should be login_uri as stated in the docs.
Yes, if you have username2 and/or username3 in the original export filled, they would need to be added into a new column named fields. Add username2: second_username and on a new line in the same column username3: third_username
As stated before, I’ve started work on the actual Dashlane-CSV importer, which would import all files. I’m hoping to get it into the next release (~mid March). I can’t promise that though, as it would still need a review and pass QA.
I hope this helps.
The suggestion from @GJK would also work, but it would currently only handle logins and no other item types.
