2.4.1. from other password managers

If you have saved previously exported KeyReel JSON-file (or CSV-file from other password managers), you can import it into KeyReel Password Vault, for example, after reinstalling KeyReel on you phone.

Note

Credentials already stored in the Password Vault have a higher priority than those being imported. This means that if your phone already has credentials with the same site+username pair, they will be skipped during the Import, leaving the existing data in KeyReel for those accounts intact.

To import JSON or CSV file you have to walk through these steps:

Run import within the KeyReel Mac App (click the Import… menu item, select “KeyReel JSON” or appropriate ‘<password manager> (CSV)’ from the source list, then press Continue).
