Ever since LastPass announced that it was allowing only one category of devices – mobile or computer – to its free tier – LastPass has been very interested in finding a choice among users. Fortunately, once you have found an option, it is very easy to pull your data from LastPass and upload it to another password manager.
Following are instructions on how to download your LastPass data, and get instructions from many popular password managers, which will help you upload that data to their services.
Export Your LastPass Data
LastPass allows you to export your data as a CSV or XML file. If you plan to move that data to another service, then CSV is a better option. Since CSV is for comma-separated values and is a plain text file, once you move your data to another password manager – or not to keep that file in a safe place, it’s a good idea Hai t is easily read by anyone else.

That’s it! LastPass will immediately download your CSV file.
