Hi. I have a list of sites and passwords in a csv file. You app says "drop an .mpsites file here to import it. I can't find any information on how to create an mpsites file on your website or in Google. How do I do this?

    Unlike vault-based password managers like LastPass, MasterPassword cannot import CSV files because it generates passwords using your name, a master password and site names.

    .mpsites files are created by MasterPassword programs (Android version, iPhone version,Desktop version ,etc) as a convenience to backup or to transfert your sites. To put it simply, no passwords are saved here, only site names.
    Hope this helps!
