Import Text File (.csv)

Instructions on how to import a generic or specific .csv file into Keeper.

Import Text File (.csv)

(1) Log into Keeper's web vault at

(2) Click on your account email in the upper right-hand corner.

(3) Click on Settings > Import.

(4) If the .csv file was generated from a specific password manager, please select the password manager from the list of choices. If this is a generic .csv file generated from another source, proceed with the "Text file (.csv)" selection.

(5) Drag the exported file into the target window "Drop a File Here".

(6) Use the drop-down menu in each column to map to a Keeper field.

(7) If you intend to share all first level folders, check the box Import Root Level Folders as Shared. By selecting this option, all first level folders will become shared.

If you only wish to share some of the folders, you will need to split the CSV file into two separate files prior to importing each accordingly.

(8) Click on Import.

Keeper's CSV import method also supports advanced structure including Folders, Subfolders and Shared Folders.

• To specify subfolders, use backslash "\" between folder names

• To make a Shared Folder specify the name or path to it in the 7th field

Example 1: Create a regular folder at the root level with 2 custom fields

Example 2: Create a shared subfolder inside another folder with edit and re-share permission

Keeper also supports advanced JSON structured file formats. We recommend using JSON files for import and export of structured data instead of CSV files. This is described in the JSON Import page.
