As LastPass started using trackers, many users have started thinking of moving to another password manager. If you want to move from LastPass to another password manager, you must have the .csv file containing all the passwords. As most dedicated password managers allow users to import.csv files, you need to export LastPass passwords to CSV so that you can use them for another service.
There are mainly two different ways to export all LastPass passwords to CSV or Comma-Separated Values format. One, you can use the official website. Two, you can export passwords from the browser extension, which is compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge. We have shown the detailed steps for each, and you can follow them according to your wish.

Export LastPass passwords to CSV using the browser extension
To export LastPass passwords to CSV using the browser extension, follow these steps-
- Log in to the LastPass account via a browser extension.
- Click on Account Options > Advanced > Export > LastPass CSV File.
- Enter your password for verification and downloading the .csv file.
To get started, open the respective browser, click on the LastPass icon, and log into your account. Next, click on Account Options > Advanced > Export > LastPass CSV File options.
Now, it asks you to enter the master password. Once you enter and submit, it starts downloading the .csv file automatically.
Considering everything, it is better to use the second method if you already have the browser extension. As it directly downloads the .csv file, you do not have to worry about saving it manually.
That’s all! Hope this guide helps.
