Planning to shift to Bitwarden from LastPass? You can easily export and import your passwords and other data between the two services.
LastPass and Bitwarder are two of the popular password managers and have a considerable user base. With LastPass recently limiting the features for its free version, many users plan to make a pass to Bitwarden.
LastPass plans to limit the free version to a single active device and users who want to continue using the manager on both devices will have to purchase one of their plans. Bitwarden seems the best alternative to those planning to shift as it offers almost all the features available on LastPass. To switch from LastPass to Bitwarden, you will need to transfer the passwords and other data stored on the former. This is a fairly easy process and won’t take more than a couple of minutes.
Transferring from Lastpass to Bitwarder
The process consists of two parts, exporting data from LastPass and importing data to Bitwarden.
