How do I import a LastPass Encrypted file that was exported from LastPass?

    You can import your LastPass vault data that you exported as a LastPass Encrypted file using the LastPass browser extension or directly from within your vault.

    Important: In order to import LastPass vault data back in to LastPass, you will be required to enter the encryption key that you created during the export process.
    Restriction: Importing directly into a shared folder is not supported. This means that all items will be imported as items within standard folders.

    Before you begin: You must export your vault data as a LastPass Encrypted file (view these instructions).
