Export Secrets

Consider a situation where you need to access your secrets when you do not have network connectivity or are not able to access Zoho Vault for some reason. As a solution, Zoho Vault offers a provision to export secrets in plain-text format to a text file. The entries are printed in comma-separated form in the text file.

To export secrets -

  1. Click the 'Tools' tab. Choose 'Export Secrets' button on the left panel.
  2. You can either export all the secrets OR export only the ones that belong to a particular secret type.
  3. Click 'Save to disk' to download the CSV file.

Alternatively, you can copy the passwords directly from the Vault GUI to a text file. Click the 'Export secrets'
button at the bottom of the page to get your passwords in comma-separated form in a text field.


  1. Remember that the passwords you export are not encrypted in any form. For a secure way of exporting passwords, use the 'Offline Access' feature to get your data in an encrypted HTML format.
  2. In case, you do not wish to allow your users to export passwords, Zoho Vault offers a provision to disable this option altogether OR selectively disable for specific users. You can do this from Admin >> Fine-grained access controls.
  3. Every time the 'Export secrets' feature is used, it is reflected in the audit trails along with the name and IP address of the person who accessed it.
