Import of password containing ampersand

This isn't a Chrome Extension bug, per se, but since I only use the Chrome Extension right now:

When I exported my account data from LastPass as a CSV, and imported it into 1Password Cloud, one of my passwords contained an ampersand. This was imported into my account as & - which obviously causes logins to fail...

I just checked, and the CSV file exported by LastPass does not contain the "&" string; only the raw ampsersand. So either my browser mangled the data when pasting into the import box / when posting, or something on the cloud side did...

    @haraldwithtwoehs: This is excellent feedback, Thanks! I'm going to double-check and see if I can reproduce this and then create an issue for the appropriate team.

    I have a love/hate relationships with edge-cases, but at least they help me stay employed. :)

    Thanks for your help!

    @haraldwithtwoehs: The good thing is, I do my part and leave stuff for others to debug as well. :pirate: I believe in paying it forward. :tongue:

    Edit: Nevermind - I found out it was a LastPass export issue after reading this article: https://support.1password.com/import-lastpass/

    I just imported my Lastpass accounts into 1Password and have the same issue.

    (I added spaces before amp to break HTML parsing of the ampersand.

    Thanks for the update! Glad to hear you were able to get a good export and import that. We're here if you have any questions about 1Password. :chuffed:
