Import your 1Password data into Codebook

You can import your passwords and other data from 1Password into Codebook.

This feature is only supported on macOS and Windows, but you can the sync your data over to Codebook on iOS and Android after completing the import process.

How it works:

  • Your Logins in 1Password (your passwords and other credentials for websites) become Entry records in Codebook, and we put them in a new Category named Logins

Step 1: Export your data from 1Password

Caution: You are about to export your passwords into an unencrypted file on your computer! We recommend temporarily disabling any backup software you use to avoid creating a backup of the unencrypted file.

  1. Launch 1Password and sign in
  2. Select File > Export and select either All Items... or Selected Items...
  3. You will be prompted to enter your Master Password. Enter it and click Continue
  4. In the dialog that appears:
    • Enter the name and location for the export file
    • In the File Format drop-down menu, select Comma Delimited Text (.csv)

      Note: Selecting iCloud Keychain (.csv) will only export credentials from your 1Password Logins, omitting the rest of your records (e.g. Secure Notes)

    • For the Fields to Export select either Common Fields to export only the fields displayed, or select All Fields to export all of your data
    • Check the Include Column Labels checkbox
    • Click Save

Step 2: Import your data into Codebook

Instructions for macOS:

  1. Launch Codebook on your Mac and sign in
  2. Select File menu > Import > Import 1Password CSV...
  3. In the open dialog that appears, choose the file you exported from 1Password
  4. After the import process completes, verify that the passwords you imported are present in the Codebook interface

Instructions for Windows

  1. Open the file you exported from 1Password in a spreadsheet editor
  2. Edit the Title column and rename it to Entry
  3. Insert a new column named Category and set the value for each row to 1Password (or whatever category name you prefer for each password record)
  4. Do a Search for any pipe | characters in your passwords, and insert a backslash \ in front of them
  5. Save your changes and ensure you save or export to a CSV file (not xls)
  6. Launch Codebook on your PC and sign in
  7. Select File menu > Import CSV
  8. In the Open dialog, select the file you just edited
  9. After the import process completes, verify that the passwords you imported are present in the Codebook interface

Step 3: Clean Up

  1. Delete the unencrypted CSV export file from 1Password on your computer
  2. If you had disabled your backup software, resume it now
