Import your Dashlane data into Codebook

You can import your passwords and other data from Dashlane into Codebook for macOS.

This feature is only supported on macOS. Use the Sync feature to access your imported data on Android, iOS, and Windows.

How it works:

  • Your Logins in Dashlane (your passwords and other credentials for websites) become Entry records in Codebook, and we put them in a new Category named Logins
  • Your Credit Cards are imported as well, into their own Category
  • Addresses and Passport details are imported into their own Categories
  • Other records associated with your Identity get their own Category
  • Secure notes are not imported -- these are not available in the JSON export from Dashlane

Before You Begin

Caution: You are about to export your passwords into an unencrypted file! We recommend you temporarily disable any backup software you use to avoid creating a backup of the unencrypted file. Anybody with access to this file will be able to see your passwords and other secrets.

Step 1: Export your data from Dashlane

  1. Launch Dashlane on your Mac or Windows computer and log in
  2. Click on File > Export > Export JSON format
  3. Save the JSON file to your computer

This process requires a JSON-formatted export from Dashlane. If this is option no longer available to you, we also have instructions for importing data from a CSV file.

Step 2: Import your data into Codebook

  1. Launch Codebook on your Mac and log in
  2. Click on File > Import > Import Dashlane JSON
  3. In the file chooser that appears, select the JSON file you exported from Dashlane
  4. 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 JSON export file from Dashlane
  2. If you had disabled your backup software, resume it now

Next Steps

Now you're ready to get started using Codebook!
