- Select Advanced > Export.
- Select LastPass CSV File.
- You will be prompted to enter the master password. Enter the master password to proceed.
- If the LastPass opens a new tab containing your data, then scroll down to step 2 to learn more about exporting data from the browser.
- If not, choose a location and file name for the CSV file that is being exported.
- Click Save.
- Make sure the .CSV extension is included while saving the file.
2. If LastPass opens a tab in your browser when exporting your data
- If LastPass opens a new tab instead of allowing to save the CSV file do the following.
- Copy all the data that is displayed on the browser tab.
- Open Notepad and paste the data into it.
- Save the document with .CSV extension.
- Press Ctrl + S. Enter a name for the file but make sure the extension is .CSV. To do this, click the Save as drop-down menu and select All Files.
